Some of my latest looks

I’ve decided to do some updates with a summary of the latest looks I made, I’m going to link to my page if you click on the look so you can see more of the pictures I made of it. I hope that way I reach some more people. Another advantage of putting the looks here on my blog is that I can add them to pinterest. I’ll also do a little personal update at the end of this blogpost. If you don’t want to read random stuff about my life, makeup, my pregnancy or anything like that, just look at the pretty pictures and skip the text below, mmkay?

I told you a long time ago about the Garden Of Eden palette I got from Enchantra. I still use that palette a lot because I’ve been doing a lot more neutral or brown looks lately. I don’t know why. I used to think those looks are kinda boring but these days it’s basically one of my go-to colours for a makeup look.

What I liked about this look is that I finally managed to make a look with white on the waterline. Well, I made those in the past but when I got to the fullface pictures it always looked weird for some reason. And it wasn’t just me, you guys also commented it looked strange, lol. Thanks for that! Nah, I’m just kidding. It’s good to hear feedback like that and to know my eyes are not actually deceiving me.
The brown colour in this palette is a very warm shade and I really like that.

Forbidden Paradise

Next is the first look I made with Sugarpill’s Olivia, I also used some of the dark brown colours from my Kat von D Saint palette, which I still adore.
Olivia is a Limited Edition pigment in a stunning olive green tone, it also has some gold in it. I’ve used it in a lot of looks and I’m so happy I got it in my stash now.

I linked this picture to my album on Facebook because I editted the pictured to add a description and somehow that way you lose the timeline update. as a whole. Very weird, but hey… lessons learned . 🙂

Saint Olivia

This look was made with some of my all time favourite blue/green colours. It has MAC Steamy in it, Sugarpill Magpie and subterranean. But they blended into each other so well that I can’t actually pinpoint one colour from another.
I really like the combination though, gives a cool gradient, dont you think?

Subterranean Steam

This look was just for the fun of it. I wanted to do something really green again (Supergreen!) and just threw together some stuff I had, together with Eye Kandy Cosmetics glitters to give it that extra emerald sparkle. It didn’t really work out as charing as I had in mind but that’s ok. It was fun to play with. 🙂

Emerald

This look is actually pretty old, well, just a couple of months old. I was still waiting for Sugarpill Olivia to arrive in my mailbox and I tried to find a colour in my stash that was a bit similar. I found it in Gosh Apple Jam pigment, although it’s not really the same. The colour combination turned out nice though, I really like this one!

I had to link back to the Facebook album again instead of the status update. That was pretty much the last time I screwed that up, I promise!

Apple Smoothie

This look was also made with the Kat von D Saint palette, I added some Sugarpill Goldilux for sparkly fun. Almost all of these colours have shimmer and I really like that about it. I don’t have a lot to say about this one, it’s just nice but not extraordinary in my humble opinion.

Saint

This is my latest update, I did this one a couple of hours before I wrote this blogpost. It’s the first look I  used on my Facebook page with my brand spankin’ new W7 palette called In The Buff. It’s a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.
Well, it’s not a complete and total dupe because some colours are slightly different and the casing of the palette supposedly is not as good as the original. But for the price difference of at lease 20 euro’s, I’m more than prepared to accept those differences. And it’s a good palette to quench that thirst for brown and neutral looks I’ve been having lately.

Shopping Spree

That’s it as far as makeup look updates on my Facebook page. I hope you liked these looks!

As far as for me, I’ve been going through a rollercoaster lately. I’m 12 weeks pregnant now and it’s been exciting but also a bit scary. Such responsibility!
I’m one of those people that tends to worry about a lot of things, especially when I’m doing something for the first time. And having a baby… well, that’s huge! So I’m trying my best to think about the fun and happy stuff. 🙂 I guess it’s because of everything that’s happening but probably also the hormones because I’ve been dreaming the craziest stuff lately and usually I wake up with a heavy heart because I even worry in my dreams. Stupid, huh? It’s difficult to let go of all the daily stuff when you go to bed if you know you’re just going to have more weird ass emotional turmoil once you lay your head down. But it’s ok, I’m getting a grip on all that and I’m sure it will all work out fine eventually.

I haven’t had vacation yet and my love and I also didn’t have vacation last year because we had a new kitchen installed. But just 5 more days of hard work and then I finally have 20 full days of blissfull nothing! I’m starting to feel drained and I’m just so excited to go on vacation with 2 great friends of ours. It’s going to be so much fun! It’s also going to be strange not being ablt to drink alcohol on vacation, though. I’m a real sucker for having a nice beer or wine on a terrace somewhere and I guess I’ll just have to stick to non alcoholic beverages this time. It’s not a problem of course but it’ll take some adjusting to my normal routine. But hey, if it means my baby and I are both healthy that’s more than worth it.

Please let me know your thoughts on these looks or on this personal stuff in the comments. I’m curious to know what you think. 😀

Marjolein´s Smokey Red

A long time ago I saw *this* look from Marjolein, a.k.a. The Art Is Makeup, on Facebook. I was immediately smitten with the brown and red colours and I really wanted to do something like it. I actually forgot a bit about these pictures and suddenly I ran into this unfinished blogpost. So I finished it as fast as possible, I hope you like it.

I added a little touch of gold in the inner corner but I think, other than the gold, this look is a lot like what I wanted to do with the inspiration Marjolein gave me.

Falling leaves

Ok, is anybody discovering a theme here? Most of the looks I posted lately have been inspired by autumn or the falling leaves so I made an autumn tag for them.If you like autumn colours, make sure to check out the tag!

This look also has those gorgeous deep dark colours in them. I was riding my bike home from work and I saw a tree with a lot of brown and reddish leaves, some yellow and some were still green. It was such a beautiful sight and I remembered those colours for next day so I could make a look with them.

Spicy Chocolate

When I had just received my Kat von D palette from The Art Is Makeup and the amazing @#$%! from The Happy Housewife, I really wanted to combine these 2. That way I could see what they would do in my eyelids and how pigmented they were in action.

I really like the combination of these colours and somehow it made me think of chocolate milk with a little pepper. Hence the title.

Saint Asteria

Some time ago, Sugarpill Cosmetics released a brand spankin’ new colour. And it’s Limited Edition too!!! I was pretty much giving up on the idea I’d be able to get my hands on it.  Until Denise from Harajuku Girl Beauty asked if anyone was interested in sharing one of these gorgeous pigments. HELL YEAH!!

I received the pigment about a week later and it is sooooo stunning. I paired it with a new palette I got from a giveaway by The Art Is Makeup. It’s a Kat von D palette called Saint and I absolutely adore it.
I’ll probably review the palette (and maybe the pigment) later. Let me just show you the look I made with it right now.
