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.

New title and look! From today all blogpost about a make-up look is going to be called new look instead of beauty. I’m going through some blog changes Loves, you will notice it soon.
Anyway, let’s get started!
I did this look when I went to a Moroccan wedding last year. Today I want to show you how I did it. I started first with my favourite concealer from Essence. As you can see it is time for a new one. I applied it on my impurities and under my eyes as an upside down triangle for a natural look. After concealer I used H&M BB Cream Beauty Balm in Rose Porcelain. I am so glad I found this gem! I finally found a good cream that matched my skin tone. It truly covers very well for a BB cream; it also doesn’t feel heavy on my face like a foundation. Since the new beauty department of H&M Beauty I’m falling more and more in love with H&M.
And now my eyes. I always used an eyeliner pen because it is easy to use. This time I tried a Gel Eyeliner from Max & More. It came with an eyeliner brush and I must say I’m impressed. Not only is Max & More a perfect budget brand and cruelty free, it has good make-up! The Gel Eyeliner is waterproof so it stayed perfect all day. On top of the black eyeliner line I used H&M Liquid Eyeliner in Green. Perfect double up! To finish it off I used Maybelline New York Illegal Definition Mascara on my eyelashes, which I forgot to place with the others for pictures. Sorry Loves!
On my cheeks I applied MAC Soft & Gentle with the strobing technique. To do this I used a Butterfly Brush by Kruidvat Professional. This brand is from my local drugstore. It is so easy to work with. It feels light in your hand, different then an ordinary brush.
For my lips I used Max & More Lip Liner in Dark Red. I applied all over my lip line. Also this lip pencil came together with the Dark Red Lipstick. Even though it says Dark Red, I expected it would be like the colour Velvet Red but it came out lighter.
What do you think Loves, would you do a double up too?
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!
