Hello, Loves. I’m here again. You have no idea how excited I am at the moment! This moment of writing a new blogpost after weeks. My summer break started and that equals more blog time. I still have to finish some college work, but It’s not that I can’t handle it together with my blog. Thank God!
I did a makeup look that was in my mind for quite a while. I was in search for a specific shade of green. The B.A.E. Gemstone Eyeshadow palette from Hema, a Dutch store, caught my eye. It has such beautiful warm tone shades. The pigment is for a budget brand good but, not perfect. I felt like I need to be a bit rough to blend it. The next budget brand I used is from Max & More and it works perfect. I love when an eyeliner pen has a pre-formed eyeliner point. When I apply it, it goes smoothly over my eyelid without smudges! Under my eyebrows I used Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette Pink Sands Edition, in shade Santorini. On my inner corners of my eyes, I used the shade Azores. This Huda palette is so perfect; the shades, the pigment, the formula, everything! For my eyelashes I used budget winner Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess mascara. Such a winner and I don’t intent to change it any time soon. Why change a winning team.
For my face I used Bobbi Brown BB Cream in shade Medium. It has a SPF of 35 in it and I love this so much! It protects my face from the sun, it has the perfect coverage and that just for a BB Cream. On my cheeks I used Essence Cosmetics Sun Kissed Bronzer. This blush is definitely my all-time favorite. The bronzer has the right shade for a sun kissed touch. It also gives that glowy look you get during summer. Suits perfect with the Huda highlighter in shade Azores that I used on my cheekbones. Perfect match!
I kept my lips subtle. I used Dior Addict lipgloss in shade #653 Sequins. It comes so close to my natural lip color. It also suits perfectly with all that glow of Huda and the bronzer.

Highlighters in a tube are to me a great beauty invention! When I’m in a hurry I just grab one and put it in my bag without getting worried it gets broken or it opens in my bag and make a mess. Since it’s fluid I only use the tips of my fingers to apply it on my cheekbones, no brush needed. On top of that they are such eye candies! As you all know me Loves, I’m rose gold and simplicity obsessed.
The first thing I did is smell the product. I definitely buy with my nose and if makeup smells chemical I don’t buy it, no matter which brand it is. With these highlighter creams I am not worried about it. The first tube I swatched is called Pearl. I like this light-yellow highlighter a lot. When you apply it on your cheekbones and blend it with your fingertips you get an instant glow, it’s good pigmented. It even looks like that natural glow! Which is perfect for daily use.
The second highlighter cream is called Oyster Pink. I like this tube because it gives that shy glowy look, it suits perfect with my beauty look Sweetheart. This shade is also perfect for under your eyebrow to create an open look. On top of that, the tube has a perfect size, you can keep it in your bag for those quick touch up days.
Honestly Loves, I am impressed by these highlighter creams from Primark. Both are well pigmented and easy to use.

My first MAC gem is a fact and I’m in love! You know me Loves; shimmery and shiny make-up is my cup of tea. Many bloggers are very enthusiastic about the brand MAC and I’ve read many reviews that have won me over to buy and try it for myself. I don’t regret it!
I roamed the store like I was a kid in a candy store, so many beautiful things that I couldn’t choose! Lipsticks, foundations, blushes caught truly my eye. Eventually it became a highlighter that is well known.
Soft & Gentle is a luxurious powder with 77-Mineral Complex that adds highlights to the face and body. You can apply it on the parts of your face like your cheeks, cheekbones, and the tip of your nose. Think about the strobing technique. Since you can also apply it on your body, how about a little swoop with your brush on your collarbones?
Although the package looks simple yet chic, it suits MAC. With limited editions and collaborations with artists the package will be adjusted. It makes me only more excited about it!
What I also like is that it gives a natural glow on your face. I applied it on my face with a strobing technique and although you cannot see it well on the pictures because of natural light it gave my face an open look.
