Back to school | What’s in my schoolbag

Hey there,

This is my bag, it´s a really cheap one, which I got from Kruitvat I guess, only € 14,99.

So lets start the first thing I grab are books. Well I don’t have to tell why I have that in my bag.The second thing I have is a notebook and a agenda also no explanation needed and a bottle of water in case you get thirsty.

Celebrity look-a-like | Katy Perry

Hey there,

I’ve been searching the internet for new ideas to post on my blog and I stumbled across some youtubers who make an “Celebrity inspired look”. I’ve always been interested in the make-up of celebrities and I recreated a lot of looks. I hope I’m not the only one who find it interesting to experiment with make-up so I started to recreate this Katy Perry look. I want to make clear, I am in no way a make-up expert and there may be some mistakes in here, but this is just how I made it. All the products will be mentioned down below.

katy_perry_kimdir_1

If you know who Katy is you can skip this part. For the ones who don’t know who she is here is a quick update. “Katy Perry was born October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California. After having three record deals fall apart, she signed with Capitol in 2007. Later that year, she released her first single, “Ur So Gay.” Still, her career did not fully take off until the release of her next single, “I Kissed a Girl”. Her album Teenage Dreams was released in August 2010.” – http://www.biography.com/people/katy-perry-562678#synopsis Her newest album, Prism, was released in October 2013. It includes the songs Roar, Unconditionally and Dark Horse. Katy has always been a big inspiration to me, make-up wise and music wise. Now that you’ve been updated, Lets start.

Katy is known of her flawless skin, witch means foundation and concealer. If you can afford a High End brand, you should go with the MAC studio fix foundation and concealer. But for the ones who can’t afford that, a cheap option is the Rimmel Match perfection foundation and the Catrice Re-touch Light Reflecting concealer.

Seeing the picture, I think she doesn’t wear Bronzer or Blush ( maybe a little bit of blush ). So we are going to the next step which is eyes. Katy wears a Blue Shimmering Eye Liner, for High End you can use a Urban Decay Kiddie Pool Eye Shadow with an angled brush, for Budged brands you can use the Catrice Metallic eyeshadow Katy wears a cat eye so that is what we’re going to do, draw a thick line. Katy wears fake lashes in this picture with a thin line of black eye liner but I want to keep it natural so I use my L’oreal Miss Manga mascara ( I fell in love with this mascara ) and Catrice Calligraph Liner.

Last but not least, lips and eyebrows. Katy wears a baby pink lipstick and you can use the MAC Bombshell (frost) Lipstick for this one or, for the low budget, the Catrice 300 Kiss Me If You Can. For eyebrows you can use what ever you like, I used Catrice Eyebrow Set.

And there it is, the finished look. I hope you enjoyed reading this and I also hope you find the High End – Low Budget idea a nice idea.

Back to school | 3 simple styles

Hey there,

It’s almost the time of the year where we have to go back to school. That’s kind of the only inspiration for this post. So, basically I am just going to show you 3 simple styles for the new year. The first is quite nude, the second is cat eye and the third is a more complete make-up look. All the products will be listed below with a link. Hope you enjoy.

1. This is more a nude look. Make-up wise I wear Foundation, Concealer and Mascara. I have a braid in my hair and a quite plain black outfit. Nothing more, nothing less. This look is perfect if you don’t wear that much make-up.

2. This is the Cat-Eye look. Also, clothes wise It’s very summery. Make-up is almost the same as the nude look but I added a Cat-Eye and a pink lipstick. I wear a white high waisted short, a plain black top and a croptop above that. I putted my hair in a ponytail.

3. The last look is a more complete look, it’s a look for a colder day. Make-up wise I added Bronzer, Blush and red lipstick. I putted my hair up in a kind of messy bun. I wear Denim jeans, a black top and a vest.

As I said, these are all really simple styles. I hope you liked reading this. If you have any other ideas for simple looks, leave it in the comments. AND I wanted to wish you all the best of luck for the new year!

L’oreal Paris – Miss Manga Mascara | Review

Hey there,

A couple days ago I picked up the L’oreal Paris “MISS MANGA” mascara. I heard mixed feelings about this one so, why not try and review it for you guys. On the L’oreal site I found “Miss manga features a 360 degree flexible brush for effortless application. Its unique brush has a flat surface to intensify and amplify upper lashes while its conical shape capture the lower lashes. Formulated with collagen spheres and polymers for ultimate volume and hold.” 

DSC02266DSC02271

I love the package, the pink lid and the black bottom give a playfull effect to the mascara, Since the mascara is called Miss Manga, this is perfect. The shape of the brush is a bit wavey. I think that’s a plus because I guess it will give a volume boost. Indeed they are the first one with a 360 degree flexible brush, I personally think this doesn’t make any difference, but we will see.
Now is says it will give a enormous volume, I personally don’t have the longest lashes and my eyelids hang down a bit, so that’s a good sign.

Applying is really easy, the brush grabs all the lashes and it gives a huge volume boost as you can see. I feel like it is a bit clumpy though which is a slightly – point but it also makes your lashes look bigger and fuller so I guess it’s fine by me. The mascara really opens up your eyes, they look a lot bigger. I do think the brush works this well because of its flexibility. Good job L’oreal!

I am in love with this mascara, it does its work perfectly and I would definitely recommend this one. I’m usually not really impressed with mascaras since I want them to be easy, volumizing and give a lot of length. Most masacaras have one or two of these plusses but not all three, so I’m happy I bought this one.

Little ideas to decorate your bedroom

Hey there,

Since my family and myself are going to move houses, I’ve been thinking about some ideas to decorate my bedroom. The room I have now is a little small, so I never really decorated it. I wanted to try out some things so I started decorating. There are a few things I did which I liked, so I thought I’d share them with you.

Now here is  my empty room.

DSC02218DSC02219

At first I started to decorate the walls. Just little things like paintings, bookshelves or just a mirror makes it look a lot more cosy. Some of my ideas are cards and pictures. It is personal which makes your room a lot more YOUR room.

 DSC02221DSC02222

For lighting you can choose either just a hanging lamp, some wall lamps or some standing lamps. I had this room since I was 8 ( I guess ) so my lamp is really old but functional. To give my room a little more cosiness I added some Christmas lights. It may sound weird but it gives a really warm glow to your room.

 DSC02225

Next up, other decoration. I chose for some candles and jars. Since I don’t really have a place to work on (in my room), I can’t decorate a desk, but if you buy some jars, candles and candy you can decorate a desk quite well. You don’t want it to get too busy because you have to work on it. Pick one jar and take the lid of and put some pencils in there. If you have little candles at home you can put pencils in 1 jar and a little light in the other one and it gives a cute effect. I really like to have some candy or fruits with me if I work/learn so I bought a slightly bigger jar and some Werther caramel thingies.I choose those because the goldy/browny colours look cute with the candle. Put the candy in the jar and you’re done. 

DSC02220DSC02216

To decorate your bed you can buy some pillows or a cute bedding, I didn’t do that because it would make my room to busy. I just have a book, my mobile and my laptop there.

So that was it, I hope it helped you. If not, I hope you enjoyed reading.

Diadermine Day and Night crème N°110 – Review

Hey there!

I’m sorry for taking so long to post again. It’s not that I was that busy. Well I kinda am actually…. My family and myself are moving houses but, the house we are going to live in has to get a huge renovation and I’m helping. With those busy days I sometimes forget to take good care of my skin. I started to notice I was getting a bit of dry skin. I started to use my mom her crème and this is my opinion about it.

Diadermine has launched a new collection of products the N°110 collection. Diadermine turned 110 years in 2014 and they made a collection because of that. That’s also why it’s called the N°110. So lets give it a look

.DSC02200

Click on one of the pictures, the first picture is linked to the night crème and the second to the day crème

At first the packaging, it looks quite professional because of the little glass jar and the baby pink lid. It says it’s dermatologically tested so that’s a good sign. The day crème will blur wrinkles and moisturise the skin. It also has radiance for a natural glow. The night crème nourishes the skin and will make it look smooth and radiant in the morning.

So I’ve been using this for about 2 weeks I guess and I don’t actually have wrinkles but I do think it makes my skin stronger. I think it’s important to moisturise your skin. It also ads radiance which I like since I like it when my skin has a natural glow.

My mom is using this too and I she purchased it again so I guess that’s a good sign. I would recommend this to people with dry skin. If you have oily skin I wouldn’t use this because I think it will make your skin even oilier 

Lots of love,

Anouk
