What if Barbie looked like a 'normal' girl

2 reacties
 
This I had to share. Artist Nicoklay Lamm from mydeals.com made a new Barbie based on
the measurements of an average 19-year old teenager. I think the result is cute.
It's a good idea to sell Barbies with different body types.  So will the kids have different realistic images instead of a false one. Go Barbie!

New year's eve makeup ideas

These girls are inspiring me for my makeup for Tuesday... New year's eve.
I just can't choose, the girls look truly a m a z i n g!

<p>Kendall Jenner straalt met die rode lipstick en gitzwarte mascara. </p>
Kendal Jenner (Kardashian sis) got it right. Simple dark brown eye-makeup (lashes) and beautiful red lips. Thé vamp look.

<p><em>We love</em> de dieprode lippen van Selena Gomez. Combineer met een vleugje goud op de ogen en blush in crèmetextuur. </p>
Héllo Gomez! Selena used a aubergine lipstick with a glossy effect. She lightened up her eyes with gold. The lashes are very voluminous and curly... obviously false lashes.   Her foundation is a warm brown color. 

<p>Jessica Biel houdt het op zilvergrijze oogschaduw en nudekleurige lipstick.</p>
Damn she's hot! Jessica Biel went for a nude look. So a thick foundation she used all over her face, and a nude lip-color. A peachy color she used on her cheekbones. Very natural... the boys love that. 
Silver + silver grey on her eyes. The inner corners are lighter.. the outsides darkgrey. Probably she used false eyelashes.. long ones. But you can create this look with a lot of layers.

Model Yamuna

7 reacties
 
One of my two best friends just had a photoshoot in Antwerp and I'm so proud of her.
Here are some of the results + comments on the makeup and hair.




Makeup:
It's quiet unbelievable but she didn't use foundation. Some skintypes just don't really need it and she is one of them. She did use some bronze powder. Her eyes she did dramatic with some dark brown, and also a cateye with eyeliner. The bigger the eyes the better, for this photoshoot she used some false lashes too. Yamuna is definitely the proof that beautiful eyebrows are big.. she made them darker with some brown eyebrowpowder. This will make the eyes even more beautiful. The finishing touch are the lips: heavy red, same for the nails.
Hair:
Yamuna did curl the tips with an curling iron, but kept it natural. I know her hair can curl even more when we went surfing :). A while ago she died the ends honey ombre. 

Hopefully I'll do here makeup next time, but I think she did an incredible job herself, what do you think?  Compliments for the outfit too.

Perfect winterlooks (eyeliner/nails)

2 reacties
 
Hi girls, found on the Maybeline facebook some eyeliner inspiration that I want to share with you: 
Which eyeliner is more your style? 

Further I bought some deepblue nailpolish that I'm wearing today. I bought it in our local store Action, also known in the Netherlands. The brand is Max & More. The polish is really thick so it covers the nail really well. It was +/- €1,00 euros, so unbelievable cheap.
Think this is the perfect wintercolor? What do you think?

Man I'm eating myself sick today in chocolate, mandarins, ginger cookies, candy... 
In Belgium we have Santa but also something similar.. Sinterklaas.
The good old man is spoiling us with candy! Tomorrow I'm starting my diet again, if they aren't enough cookies left...

Rock your glasses

4 reacties
 
Traditionally glasses were for snobs and not fashionable. Nowadays it's thé fashionitem if you want to look 'geekchic', and no it's not only for hipsters. There are a lot of fashionable glasses and it can bring an extra dimension to your look. Plus... sometimes it's just so handy. My eyes for example can be tired of the lenses so I take my glasses and wear them proudly. But glasses can make your eyes look smaller and that's something we don't want.

So this is what I do: I use some eyeliner and I'm not afraid to put a thick line.
I mostly go for a cat eye and use a liquid eyeliner with a hard pencil.
I don't use pencils from a expensive brand.. this is from 2b, a brand from a local drugstore. You have to be careful with that because there are eyeliners at the market that are very messy. My advice: choose a brand.. but a cheap one.


tumblr mpoi2kpT551qzqy00o1 500 missmerli:

Want the perfect cat eye? Here is an easy four step...

1. The trick is to make a line that makes an angle to the end of your eyebrow.
You can use an other pencil to hold it  from the end of your eye to the end of your brows.
You make the line as big as you feel comfortable with.

2. Then you go back to your eye.. and make a triangle and stop at the middle of your eye.

3. Fill up the triangle.

4. Make sure the color is against your eyelashes. 

Et voila!




A good tip is to wear you're glasses with proud B-) and not to hide behind your glasses.
This is me with my ombre Rayban.  You can also see that I kept my foundation warm. My hair has an ombre too..

Love this look. She keeps her foundation neutral and goes for a cat eye and colorful lips. This is how you can rock your glasses ladies!

The scarf

So proud of my ZARA-scarf, it's so big and warm that I just can keep wearing my thin leather jackets without freezing something off ;). But also it's very fashionable with his two sided patterns: red and black-white plaid. You can pick a side or just can show the two sides off by twisting the scarf. I already can't live without it. What do you guys think?

Winter/party makeup

4 reacties
 
After my makeup post I thought it would be nice to share with you one of the results. 
I did the makeup of myself (left) and my sweet friend Esther (right), you can find her blog here: Fashionestra.
I kept my makeup quiet natural and simple.. just foundation of Loreal Infaillible, color: sand. Finished it up with some sandy loose powder (any brand is good), and some eyeliner. My mascara is from mac. 
Esther (fashionestra), I gave a blue smokey eye. I used 3 colors for this: on the end of the eye dark blue and on the inside I went lighter. I finished up with her favorite mascara Maybeline volum' express. And used a lot of eyeliner for a vavavoom effect. 


The mascara I was talking about: 
mac haute & naughty lash mascara with two brushes: one for the day (haute/high) and night (naughty).
It doesn't stick and has a long effect, perfect but pricy.

Not so pricy but with a volumious and curly effect is the Volum'espress Colossal cat eyes (the one Esther is using). I think it looks amazing on her!
