While the sun-rays are still at a long-term hiatus here in the Netherlands, that doesn’t mean we can’t already start to bronze ourselves up. MAC recently came out with her Summer 2013 collection called “Temperature Rising” and while the temperature is still falling here in Holland, today I’ll show you one of MAC‘s new bronzers: “Nude on Board”..

Sometimes when you first discover a makeup brand, you immediately fall in love.
You want to buy all of their products, go home and just dump it all on your face.
With Benefit I never really had that experience, I always thought they looked fun and such, but not “tickle-my makeup belly-worthy” ← (let’s make that a thing, haha)
However, when I tried Benefit’s “The Porefessional” and the “They’re Real!” mascara my love for Benefit started growing rapidly. My love for them started growing so fast, I felt a little tickle in my makeup belly every time I used one of their products.
I decided to buy the Creaseless Cream Shadow in “My Two Cents” and Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner.. More! →
When it comes to the world of lipsticks, in my opinion, Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks are at the top of the lipstick Mount Everest. Their packing has the appearance of a three billion dollar mansion, their quality is as good as Iron Man’s suit and just their overall feeling makes you feel like a Hollywood star.
When I saw amazing makeup artist Lisa Eldrigde use Y.S.L’s Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick in number 19 I literally gasped for air. Such a stunning, modern pop of color.
I decided to splurge and buy two Rouge Volupté Shines myself! More! →
A couple of days ago on Twitter I saw a tweet about a new INGLOT Lipstick palette filled with the most crazy colors you could ever wish for. At first I thought it was a very late April Fools joke, but oh no, INGLOT wasn’t kidding with this one.
INGLOT came up with ten outrageous colors, all put in one palette for lips, eyes and all other crazy looks you can use this palette with.
Behold, the INGLOT Color Play Lipstick Palette! ..get ready for tons of pictures :) More! →
When M.A.C emailed me the press release for their “Year of the Snake” collection
I -no joke- screamed a little, almost burst out of my skin from excitement and begged for collection samples. I imagined writing the most awesome blogpost review on the products I’d receive, and just having a good ol’ time while doing all of it.
But when this pretty package landed in my hands, I actually had the flu.
And the flu, ladies and gentlemen, is a bitchy little thing. It makes anything pretty look 200% prettier. It makes pretty things look like angels sent from above.
(Imagine: Glowy products looking like a “glowing, mind blowing sunset”)
You can imagine that when I opened this pretty package, all the flu told me to do was: “SWATCH ALL OF THIS. You know you want to! *evil face*”
I was weak. I was lacking any type of pretty in my life at that moment.
And so I ended up swatching all the products, meaning I ruined them for review pictures.
But I did accomplish to leave the lipsticks unharmed.. More! →
My undying love for N.Y.X’s blush in “Taupe” has been a well known fact for months and months now. It’s my life saver: It makes me look like a supermodel when I feel like a crack-addict. It makes me look like a photoshopped goodness when I feel like an unliquified mess. This blush is heaven and more to me..
But then N.Y.X decided it was time to shatter my golden days and discontinue “Taupe”.. More! →
Eva Bus @ Fresh Model Management
Since I launched my highly improved website with an entire new layout and tons of other fun stuff, with that Bianca Toeps (good friend, photographer and website builder… really what can’t she do?) also made a gallery for me. In there I could easily add photoshoots I’ve worked on and other cool stuff I want in there.
A couple of weeks ago Bianca(also the woman behind awesome Dutch website Fashionmilk.com) organized the third “Fashionmilk” shoot. As I’ve been a part of these shoots since day 1 it was my job to do makeup that day!
My love for the M.A.C Extra Dimension Skinfinishes has always been a well known fact.
But every product has its flaws. With these babies: They’re limited edition. And knowing M.A.C that won’t change any time soon. Yeah M.A.C get on it!
That’s why when I was browsing through some drugstores here in the Netherlands with my mom my jaw literally dropped. Four PUPA Dèco Diamond eyeshadows. All shining bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diam….. Okay, I’ll stop.
These four beauties literally made me stop and stare. And #03 looked very familiar… More! →
