It has been a while since my latest beauty look for you Loves. I have been lately so caught up with my studies that I don’t find the time to work on the love of my life: my blog. Yes, you hear this every time when I don’t post for a while but believe me when I write, this is the only reason why. Thinking about it now, I probably dedicate a blogpost about my studies. This said Loves, let’s get right into my daily look!
As you know me: simplicity is a bliss. First, I start with my daily skincare routine then I apply H&M BB Cream Beauty Balm in colour Rose Porcelain. It is quite hard to find a blemish balm or even a foundation in my skin tone because sometimes I’m pale like Casper the friendly ghost than sometimes redness shows up like an intruder. Basically, hallelujah for makeup!
My daily look contains less work than when I go to a Moroccan wedding. So, after the BB Cream I start with my eyes by using Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel mascara that I received from Loreal to try it out. The brush is a truly holy grail for your under eyelashes! No more messiness. Because of the small brush my eyelashes separates very well while applying. However, you need many layers for a falsie look.
On the apples of my cheeks I used Essence Silky Touch Blush in #30 Secret It-Girl. I use this peachy shade for a healthy blush look. On my cheekbones, I used budget topper Fashion Professional Mosaic Blush in #02. I use this blush more as a highlighter because it is perfect shimmery pigmented.
I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to liquid matte lipsticks, but with DOSE of Colors in shade Truffle I have an obsession! As soon as you apply it, it turns quickly in the well know matte pigment. I usually don’t have the guts to use a brown or nude colour on my lips but this shade got me surprised. It even tastes like chocolate!
This is my daily look. Well, for now. Sometimes I change my blush or lipstick colour but other than that, this is my go too.

I must say; 2016 was a beauty year. I loved experimenting with makeup for beauty looks. Contouring and highlighting was my main goal to get the hang of it and to me, it turned out pretty lovely!
I focused also on my eyes. I wanted to get more confident in making smokey eyes, because of my small eyes. I don’t want to look like a panda. Till this day, I am saluting all makeup lovers who uses their whole eyes, from under the eyebrow until the whole moving eyelid as their perfect canvas! Because if I do it, I will look like a clown. I just don’t like the whole eye look on me. On my moving eyelid, I will use any colour but on top of it I limit it only to light colours. I guess you could say that I’m a bit insecure about it, but then again; for everything is a first!
When it comes to lips I use mostly red to fuchsia to pink shades. Those are my favourites lip colours, I don’t like nude’s colours or Barbie pink. I have carefully tried to use dark colours such as dark red and I was surprised! I never thought it will suit me.
As I look at my makeup stash I see that I use products that are low budget to high end. From all the variety, I have I stick always with one or two budget toppers from Essence Cosmetics. Their orange packaged mascara and concealer are truly my beauty budget must-haves!
I think that for my upcoming beauty looks I will be more openminded towards making new looks then before however I don’t want to follow trends that are just a waste of good beauty products. Like, #100 layers’ foundations? Or silicone bra makeup sponge? No thank you!

I have a new look for you Loves! Its been a while since I did one, when I finally had the moment to do it I was instantly in a beauty mood! I hope I can give you this feeling too so you can try this look out or one of my many other looks that I have done. Let’s start!
I used my daily favourite Essence Stay All Day 16 Long Lasting Concealer in shade #10 Natural Beige to blemish my impurities. When I let it for a minute I used MaxFactor Xperience Foundation in shade Beige Linen #50 with SPF 10 to set a base for my look. Yet again I let it for a minute and then used Essence Stay All Day Translucent Fixing Powder for a matt and natural finish. I let it bake for a minute and started with a simple contour that I mostly do. For this contour, I used the budget beauty contour stick from Max&More. Not to look like Casper the friendly ghost I used Essence Mosaic Compact Powder in shade #01 Sun Kissed Beauty. It gave my look indeed a sun kiss!
For my eyes, I used L’Oréal Paris Colour Pop in the shade #410 Punky Turquoise. I just love the colour blue! I started from the middle of my moving eyelid until the end of my eyebrows. I used a darker shade of sparkly blue from Boulevard De Beauté palette for the rest of my eyes and to blend it in I used the white sparkly shade to tone the blue down. For the perfect eyeliner wing I used Max&More Gel Eyeliner in the shade Pure Black. For my lashes, I used Ace of Face Eyerule Volumizing Curling Mascara #3 that I received with my first Style Tone Box. On the side where my tear drops come out I used Douglas Jumbo Pen for an open look.
On my cheeks, I used Essence Silky Touch Blush in shade #30 Secret It-Girl. I really love how it turned out together with the use of the compact powder, using the right colours can truly do so much! For that extra glowy glow I pulled out my MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish for indeed that perfect finish!
Last but not leas, my lips. I’m very pleased about the new KIKO Milano 3D Hydra Lip glosses! I have it in the #3 this peachy colour is just right for daily use.

I have a new look for you to see Loves. I am so excited about it, not only I used nice new products I also get more and more great in contouring and highlighting. Even tough after shooting every new beauty look my make-up get rinse off right away just as fast as shooting with my camera and I still enjoy every bit of it! So let me make you excited too.
I first started with Etos Skin Smoothing Primer to set a base for my L’Oréal Nude Magique Eau De Teint in #100 Porcelain foundation. Before I went further with my foundation I used my all-time favourite Essence Stay All Day 16h Long Lasting Concealer in #10 Natural Beige to blemish my impurities. When I let it for a minute or two to dry I started with contouring. Max&More Contour Stick is such a budget goodie! I contoured my facial parts that makes my face a bit smaller. After contouring I highlighted the facial parts that I wanted to stand out. Yet again I let it alone for a minute before I started to blend it with my H&M Angled Buffer Brush. It is such a fine makeup brush; the bristles are so soft!
Now comes my eyes. To set base for eyeshadows I just H&M Fidelity Primer. I did not only use it on my moving eyelid but also under my eyebrow. On the middle of my moving eyelid I used eyeshadow H&M Blueberry Swirl to set a shade. On the inner and outer parts of my eyelid I used Max Factor Colour X-Pert Eyeshadow in shade #7 Vibrant Mauve. To blend it all together I used Max Factor Colour X-Pert Eyeshadow in shade White Satin. I used this shade also under my eyebrows for an open look. For mine under eye waterline I used my new goodie from my Style Tone Box of September Note Luminous Silk Mono Eyeshadow in #10. I wanted to express my eye colour more, purple suits brown very well!
I know making winged eyeliner can be a struggle to make. If you use a winged eyeliner brush you only have to need a steady hand so, move over sticky tape! The brush that comes with Max&More Gel Eyeliner is perfect for it. On my lashes I used Ace Of Face Volumizing Curling Mascara Eyerule #3. It makes my eyelashes perfectly black with just one swipe!
For the last finishing touches, I used Essence Silky Touch Blush in shade Secret It-Girl #30 on my cheekbones and on my lips I used Max&More Lipstick and lip liner in shade Dark Red #004
I am very happy about the results! How about you Loves?

As I said in my Touch Of Gold make-up look I’ve been wandering through my make-up stash. Since I started blogging I feel I purchase a lot of new beauty goodies to use for reviews and new looks. I have to put a hold on myself and my wallet and use the goodies I already have. I don’t want to throw the half away just because it is expired. That would be a waste right Loves?
I am already impressed by the new beauty department of H&M and over the clothing even more. The pigment of this eyeshadow palette is just perfect. Even the white one can you see very well. The light soft pink surprised me too. I thought you would not see the difference between white but the glow of the light soft pink is quite good to see. Imagine when you combine it with the other colours for a beautiful look.
Pink, I’m thinking i’m growing a new obsession on that colour…
What do you think about this eyeshadow palette Loves?
During summer I prefer lightly or no make-up. It feels too heavy then! Let me not talk about clogged pores. Prevention is better than cure, right Loves?
For this look I used first BB Cream from So Me. What I love about this BB cream is that it covers just the right amount for a natural look. Not only it’s perfect for a sweet look it also has SPF 15 UV protection!
When I finished my face, I start with my eyes. The eyeliner I used is from Essence. This Superfine Eyeliner Pen I used it for many make-up looks and I must say I recommend it to every make-up lover!
For an open look I used W7 Yummy Eyes Baked Eye Shadow Café Latte on my eyelids. It has such a great pigment and it sparkles glamorous too! To complete my Sweetheart look I applied Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil #10 Almost Famous on my inner corner tear duct. It gives just the last touch of an open look. On my eyelashes I used Essence Plump No Clumps Volume Mascara. Yes, it does what is says!
On my cheeks I used Essence Silky Touch Blush #30 Secret It-Girl. This blush gives a shimmer look, just like when you have that natural glow in the summer!
Last but not least, for my lips I used Essence Pink Lip Gloss. When I first used this lip gloss I thought it’s going to be a typical Barbie doll colour. I’m glad it didn’t, I love it for this sweet look!
