Let me tell you about a foundation I’ve recently fallen in love with…
I have used all sorts of foundations. My favorites are MAKEUP FOREVER, MAC, BB CREAMS and of course INGLOT. My sister recently showed me the KRYOLAN foundation. And all I can say is WOW. The coverage is super amazing and you don’t need a lot of it at all!
I think the best part of it is that it lasts forever. By that I mean the amount you get and how much you will actually use. It’s brilliant.
Here are pictures of my face. Half without any foundation and the other just covered with the foundation. No concealer was used.
After I finished applying the foundation, I then did my contouring and finished off with powder, after which I proceeded with my “face painting”.
I think the coverage is amazing. New favorite for sure.

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!!!

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! 💄💄💄
