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.

Loves, I did a new makeup look. It has been a while since I posted my everyday look. This time I chose to do a simple glamorous look, perfect for the upcoming holidays. This look is for all the ladies who prefer spending more time with their loved ones than in front of a mirror.
First, I started with my all-time favourite concealer from Essence. This long-lasting concealer is truly my holy grail when it comes to blemish my impurities. The shade #10 Natural Beige suits my skin tone perfectly! After applying the concealer, I used the next budget topper, BB cream from Alvira. What I like is that it matts without me using a compact powder. For someone with an oily skin like me is this great for an BB cream. It also has an SPF 15 factor, it is moisturizing and gives a healthy-looking look. A slightly dislike is that it doesn’t give a full cover. It doesn’t bother me, because I only use a BB cream to tone down redness and eye fatigue.
The next thing I did is my eyes. I used the middle colour from Makeup Revolution baked eyeshadow palette in the name Pure & Innocent. This colour comes close to my own skin tone. It looks like a natural glow when I applied it and look back at the pictures. I also applied it under my eyebrows. On my brows I used Chella Transparent Defining gel just to restrain it. The eyeliner pen that I used is from Starlooks Pro. This luxe long wear eyeliner has a burgundy shade. I like it, it is a good different than black! On the part where my tear duct is I used PS… Primark Strobe Highlighter in the shade Sand. I used this highlighter instead of my cheekbone on my eyes for an open look. On my eyelashes I used Ace of Face Eyerule #3 Volumizing Curling Mascara +. It has a high-volumash formula. It does curl my eyelashes perfectly. I like the hairbrush that it has. The hairs are small, I don’t make a mess because of it.
Here comes my cheeks part. First I used PS… Primark Blusher in shade Amaretto. I normally use a peach coloured blush. But this coffee brown shade I fell in love with! The pigment is great, it gives a soft look. On my cheekbones I used BeeBee Highlighter powder for a subtle and glamorous look.
On my lips I used MAC cosmetics lustre lipstick in the shade Lady Bug. It has a red-orange tone that I like. I am lately in love with my MAC lipsticks, I use them more than ever! I also think that this colour is perfect for Loves who find red lipstick a bit too much.
What do you think about this look and are you excited for the holidays? I certainly am!
