Lately #1

I've been meaning to do more lifestyle posts,
so I thought I would tell you guys what I've been
doing lately. I met some friends a couple of weeks ago which
was really nice, I hadn't seen them for a while and we 
talked until really late that night! Here is the makeup look
I was wearing that night (inspired by Kylie Jenner of course)

Thank you Netflix! I've been watching the first season
of friends this week on Netflix. I've seen all the episodes
sooo many times but I haven't seen the first two seasons 
not nearly as often as the others. It's so nice to sit down 
for a few minuets watch one episode, while drinking a
cup of coffee or tea.
I've been trying to eat healthier and more fruit.
I find the easiest way to eat a lot of fruit is to
make smoothies. My favorite smoothies are the
ones that have avocado and ginger. For this smoothie I
used an apple, orange, lemon, avocado and a little bit
of ginger.

Thanks for reading!

My favorite makeup brushes (Real Techniques) Part 2 - eyes

Here it is, the second part of my favorite makeup brushes.
Here are all my favorite and best eye-makeup brushes.

Deluxe Crease Brush
This brush is great for highlighting.
I use it to highlight my brow bone and
even to highlight my cheekbones. It's also
good for powdering the under-eye area.

Base Shadow Brush
I looove this brush! It's flat and
a bit pointy so it's really easy to do the crease
and it's almost impossible to screw it up. You
can even use it as a blending brush.
The brush is a base shadow brush  but
it doesn't take as much product as I would expect
a base shadow brush to do.

Shading brush
Like almost all the other brushes,
I don't use them as the name suggests how
I should use them, sooo I use this one for the base.
It takes up a lot a product and therefore is the brush perfect
for setting the base eyeshadow.

Brow Brush
This brush is so good for doing your eyebrows.
It's not too soft and just the perfect shape.
The size of the brush is just right for my eyebrows
so i can do them in no time!

That's it for my favorite makeup brushes,
I hope you liked it!

My favorite makeup brushes (Real Techniques) Part 1 - Base

Good makeup brushes are a big part of making your makeup look flawless.
It's really difficult to get a natural makeup look using bad quality makeup
brushes. I thought I would share with you guys my favorite makeup brushes.
You might notice that all of my favorite makeup brushes are from
Real Techniques, they are just such good quality and they are affordable.
.This will topic will be divided into two blog posts, in this post I'm writing about
the brushes I use for the base and for part 2 I will write about the eye makeup

Powder Brush
I use this brush for my powder (obviously)
The brush is super soft so it doesn't take to
much product at once. It's also really big
so it takes literally 5 seconds to apply the
powder on your face. Also, if I but too much
bronzer or blush I just use this brush to get some of the
product off.

Expert Face Brush
 I use this brush for my foundation. With a good
foundation, the brush makes it look very natural
and it's also really easy to build up your foundation
using this brush. You can also use it to 
blend your concealer.

Blush Brush
Not only my favorite brush but also my most used.
I actually use it a lot more often to apply bronzer than blush.
The brush picks just the right amount of bronzer, so you
don't have to spend a lot of time swirling your brush in the product
until you get the right amount, but it also doesn't take too much
product so you will look like an oompa loompa.

Let me know what makeup brushes are your favorite!

Kylie Jenner inspired makeup look


Yes, I'm one of those people who is obsessed with Kylie Jenner's makeup look,
I mean, her makeup looks flawless! So i thought I would show you guys my makeup look 
inspired by Kylie. 

After applying foundation and concealer, I used five makeup products to get her signature look. 

1 - Eyebrows 
I didn't do much other than filling my in my eyebrows to get her eyebrow look. I used the darker color of the Brow & Liner Kit in 01 from the Body Shop

2- Bronzer
To get Kylie's sun-kissed look, I used my favorite bronzer Bahama mama from the balm

3 - Eyeshadow
From my Naked 2 palette, I used foxy all over my eyelid - a bright highlighting shade, and then tease in the crease - a beautiful brown/purple shade.

4 - eyelashes
To get Kylie's long lushious lashes I used they're real mascara from benefit.

5 - lips
Finaly for the most important part to get Kylies signature look, the lips. I recently bought the color drama intense velvet lip pencil in 630 nude perfection, which I absoloutely love! It's a nude brownish color, perfect to finish off the look.

Happy New Year!

Yes it has been a while since my last post, I've been on a
little (okay, maybe a bit longer than just a little) blogger break.
The truth is, I really missed blogging so I have decided to start
blogging again! I'm going to try change things up a bit, add more
lifestyle posts and more makeup looks. 

Speaking of makeup looks, here is how I did my makeup for new
years eve. I used the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay, which I 
absolutely adore! You will definitely be seeing a lot of makeup 
looks featuring my Naked 2 palette in the future. 

I hope you all had a great new years eve
and that 2015 will be a great year for you!
