Hey there gorgeous.
Recently I went to a dear friends wedding. So I thought I would show you show you how I did my makeup.
So many makeup artists say you should have one focal point on your face. And generally they’re right. But there is one look where you could pull off strong eyes and strong lips. And that’s when using Red lips.
This is how I do it…
First, it’s all about contouring and highlighting and of course blending it all properly.
Then I add a shimmery highlighting eyeshadow in the corner of my inner eyes and on the brow bone. After that I apply black eyeliner and set it with black eyeshadow on my lower lash line.
I then added a darker shade of eyeshadow on my outer eyelid and blending it to the crease. Giving it a slightly smokey effect. After which I add eyeliner with a tapered brush and an eyeliner paint pot. Of course I shape my brows. Brows are the frame of the face, the face is the picture. So I always shape my brows. As thick, as thin as I want.
I then finished off with falsies and the famous Rubywoo MAC red lipstick!!!
In a nutshell, I used KRYOLAN foundations, INGLOT eyeshadows and of course Rubywoo lipstick.
I love wearing this look when going out. It’s strong, yet feminine. 💋
Have a fabYOUlous day!!!

Hello there! 🍰
One Sunday evening I wanted to bake something ‘different’. So I walk to the kitchen, I had a look in the cupboards and fridge and thought… Hmmm. Flour, butter, banana, cream cheese, Nutella and immediately thought of a Nutella cream cheese pastry!
So I made the pastry from scratch (short crust) and started prepping all the other ingredients. This is how it all turned out.
So as you can see I rolled out the pastry, cut out circular shapes, added the cream cheese mixed with Nutella, few pieces of banana and dotted with butter.
I then brushed some egg whites around the pastry edges.
Folded them over in half.
Placed them on a floured baking tray, brushed them with egg white again and sprinkled some sugar on the top. And made little cuts to prevent them from tearing open, allowing air to escape. Then I baked them in the oven (180deg) until golden brown.
There you go! Done!
Bear in mind that hot banana and cream cheese isn’t very palatable straight out the oven. Allow the pastries to cool down before eating them.

Good morning to you! 💋
Many times I get requested to show how I apply my eyeshadow. The one thing I enjoy about the way I apply eyeshadow is that it’s very easy, fast and when using other colors is will look very different even though I use the same method.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not the only way I apply shadow. But this is the fastest way for me. It’s my “everyday easy look”. Ok, for some it may seem much, but honestly it probably doesn’t take me for than 20 -30 min to finish from applying the foundation and finishing off with my gloss or lipstick.
So here it goes: I start off by applying the color I want in the crease of my eye, then blending it out slightly. Not too much.
Then I add the highlighting color on the center of my eye and of course on my brow bone and I then blend all the connecting edges together so that no harsh lines are showing.
As you can see I apply a bit of color also at the bottom of my lower lash line and connect it on the outer corner of my eye.
Now it’s time for the eyeliner. I like to apply my liner quite thick, but start thin if you’re not used to it, and if you feel you could use more, then gradually make it thicker. Easier to add, than to take off in the instance of makeup application.
I then shape my brows, add mascara. I often use false lashes on the outer corners of my upper lash line.
Obviously I’ve already applied my foundation, but I finish off my whole look with blush and lipgloss or lipstick.
Once I’ve blended everything together properly and I’m dressed, accessorized and I’ve done my hair, the amount of makeup I’ve got on looks normal. Lol.
There you go. My easy makeup look using color.
See you again soon! 💄💄💄

Hey there Pouters
Have you ever looked at pigment pots in makeup stores and thought to yourself how on earth do people use it? It’s quite ‘shocking’. The colors are very deep, intense and bright.
In my opinion, the secret to using it successfully is in the 1) base, 2) blending and the use of water.
Here are a few photos of me using pink and purple pigments from INGLOT.
I first used a KRYOLAN white paste as a base for the colors to ‘stick’. As you can see, I also used sticky tape to form a straight line and also to catch fallout from the pigment powder. A cream eyeshadow was used on the inner corner and on the brow bone.
The more you blend, the less intense the colors will appear.
I shaped my brows, applied liquid eyeliner on the upper lashline, applied eyeliner on my lower waterline and of course topped it all with mascara.
As you can see the look isn’t as intense as it looked in the beginning when pigment was being applied.
I mentioned earlier that one can use water with pigments. That will cause a very intense look, but extremely difficult to blend. You’ll have to blend the edges out with dry pigment powder afterwards.
Another use for pigment is adding powder to clear nail varnish. You’ll have your very own custom nail color..
Enjoy your fabulous, colorful and
