Cloudy Rainbow

I made this look with 2 of my favourite brands: Sugarpill and MakeUp Geek. I also adore my Sleek makeup palettes so they bascially share a top 3 together.

My initial idea was to stay with the orange, pink and plummy colours from my MakeUp Geek pigments but then I added some colours from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette and well… that’s when things became rainbow…ish.
The MakeUp Geek pigments are Afterglow, Enchanted and a bit of New Years Eve.

I really like the combination of colours I used under the eye: Sugarpill Olivia, Mochi and Velocity. It’s not a load of colour but it’s enough to stand out. And I used Sugarpill’s Asteria on the moving lid and Poison Plum and 2AM in the crease and Diamond Eyes under the brow.

This time I didn’t use any eyeliner, I used black eyeshadow at the lashline and I really like that effect. It’s a lot more smokey. 🙂

I didn’t use a lot of colour on the lips, figured I’d keep those light for a change. I like dark lips and dark eyes but I can make the whole look a bit “much”, don’t you think?

I really loved working with so many colours again. What do you think, do you like this look? With what lip colour would you have paired it?

Prince @#$%!ing Charming

I’ve been in a “yay it’s almost spring” mood for about a week. Even though it’s quite early, the weather is great around here and I’m so happy the end of winter is in sight. I was dreading the snow and the freezing cold and somehow we skipped that part this year. It’s basically been a really, really really long autumn and I’m not one bit disappointed that we skipped the icy cold part of winter.

Anyway, because I was in a happy-happy-joy-joy-mood I wanted to do an intense look with glitterrrrrr. And some red, silver and blue. Here’s what happened.

Heather’s TARDIS

Hey folks! I wanted to update a lot sooner this year but a lot came up that needed my attention more. I moved to a different location at work and that’s been draining a lot of my energy. My grandmother also passed away last week so obviously my mind was elsewhere after that. These things still take up a lof of my time so I don’t know when I’ll be making new looks.
However, I stil have some old looks on my computer and I really wanted to show these so bit by bit I’m putting together these blogposts. Just be a little patient and I’ll get back into the blogging mood as soon as possible.

So, on to this look! A long time ago, longer than I had planned to put this look online, I saw *this* look by Heather Makeup Mouse. She did such a great job with that TARDIS look and I really liked the colours she used. I’m not very good at the detailed drawing in my makeup looks so I decided to try and capture the same colours she used, but a little more “wearable for every day”. I hope you like the result.

Thanks for the inspiration, Heather!

Paradise Bird

Some time ago I pinned this picture om one of my Pinterest boards. Isn’t he beautiful?

Long-tailed sylph

I thought this cute little guy has the most beautiful colours and somehow I thought of all Sugarpill colours.
So of course that’s what I used for this look.I’ve been doing so many glittery and shimmery looks lately that it was a nice change to do something that was entirely matte.

See the rest of this entry to see how the look worked out.

The magpie and the cobra

Woohoo, it’s december 5th!! That might not mean anything to you but in the Netherlands it’s a holiday called Sinterklaas. It’s mostly a kids holiday but a lot of families celebrate it, wether they still believe in Sinterklaas or not. Anything for a party, right?

I still had some blogposts almost ready and I really wanted to get this one online fast because it’s with one of the glitterliners from the Breaking Dawn part 2 collection and… well I really like it. I hope you do to!

This is how my thought process went for this look, or actually a lot of times when I’m working on a makeup look:
“Hmm, let’s do something simple. Don’t feel like doing a complicated look”
“So many pretty colours to choose from, yeah baby.”
“Maybe I could do something more fun with the shape.”
“Shape looks nice but it all looks boring, how can I spice this up?”
“How about a nice extended winged liner”
“Starting to like it”
“Oh I see what I’m missing, NEEDS SPARKLES!!”
“Yeah, me likey”
“MORE SPARKLES!!!!”
“Oh I like that one too, use ALL the glitter!!!!!”
“I look like a discoball”
“Woohoo!”
That about sums it up…
