Back at it! Today’s quick makeup look, using Studio Gear

When the baby arrived 6 weeks ago, I basically stopped wearing makeup. I’ve been too tired and I don’t much time for it. Having a newborn didn’t stop me from buying it though (I purchased some items from MAC’s holiday collection last week, for example), but using it? Not so much. The other day Studio Gear sent me some goodies in the mail to try, so I had no choice, they basically forced me… I’m joking of course. I didn’t have to, but you know me..I LOVE makeup and I love trying out new stuff. Sharing my thoughts on here...

My wedding anniversary makeup and 29 week baby bump

Happy humpday! We’re halfway through the week, yes! I’m already looking forward to the weekend. 🙂 Hopefully it will be as good as last weekend: last Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary and the fact that our baby bump is now 29 weeks old! Hard to believe that in about 11 weeks, we’ll have not 1 but 2 kids! It honestly STILL feels a little surreal… Babygirl is now 29 weeks! Celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary (how handsome is my husband?!) On Sunday I wore ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Mess Around (my hubby loves...

My Summer makeup, outfit of the day and new JORD watch!

Summer is finally here and it’s heating up here in California. I’m 27 weeks pregnant now and I feel like a whale… My outfits have been very simple and my makeup has been very minimal. I suspect this will be an everyday thing this Summer. Even though nothing is really that exciting, I did want do this blog post, because I’m sure all moms (to be) can relate. Hot day, active toddler, baby bump…who has the energy to dress up? Keep reading to see my makeup and outfit this past Sunday! Also, I have a new watch that I want...

My 25 weeks baby bump! And all about yesterday’s makeup

Happy Monday! 🙂 A while back I promised to post some baby bump shots, which I finally got around to doing. During my first pregnancy we took a lot of ‘progress’ pictures and I have to admit: with this baby we’ve been slacking a little bit. A big part of it was me not feeling all that well. I mean…who wants to take pictures if you’re feeling sick? Luckily, my nausea has calmed down a bit. Besides the heartburn, body aches and fatigue, I’m doing pretty well. I had my ‘glucose tolerance test’ the other day and the results were...

Face of the Day ft. the NEW Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara #velvetnoir

Hi everyone! I’ve been using a brand new mascara recently and I love it! It makes my eyes look like I have falsies on, which is awesome. I like my lashes long and full and the new Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty does it for me. It’s available exclusively at Sephora and I was fortunate enough to receive it in a VoxBox from Influenster, as I showed in this post. My full review will be up this weekend. For now, check out today’s makeup! 🙂 Makeup breakdown ​Face​​​​ ​ ​ -Peter Thomas Roth Pore Putty (primer)...

Merry Christmas! Here’s my Christmas makeup look 2015

Hello! I’m taking a few days off from the blog, because we’re going to Vegas this weekend! Yeah, baby! It’s been almost 4 months since we moved away, can’t wait to be back. Nothing says Christmas like Sin City, right? Lol! Wishing every single one of you a very merry Christmas! Have fun with your friends and family and don’t eat too much. 😉 If you’re traveling this weekend, safe travels! I might sneak in a blog post this weekend, if time allows it, but I’ll for sure ‘see’ you on Monday. 🙂 Below are the makeup I used for...

Face of the Day ft. a new (to me) foundation: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H

Oh my gosh, guys! Why didn’t any of you tell me about this foundation? It’s everything I’ve been looking for! I’m talking about Teint Idole Ultra 24H by Lancome. I’ve been wearing it for a week straight now and it’s amazeballs! I was browsing around Macy’s last week and the sales associate at the Lancome counter brought this foundation to my attention after I told her how oily my skin gets. She recommended it to me, because it’s matte, but not too drying, long-lasting but not too thick. She gave me a sample, which I’ve been happily using every day....

Face of the Day: Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita II’

Hi everyone! It’s Friday! I normally would be excited that it’s Friday, except not today. My mom is actually flying back to Europe tomorrow. 🙁 I wish she could have stayed longer… Luckily, she’s flying back tomorrow and not today on Friday the 13th. Hah! In this post I will be showing you a quick look with Lolita II Everlasting Liquid Lipstick by Kat Von D. This is a brand new, matte liquid lipstick. As I showed you the other day, the original Lolita is a deep chestnut rose shade. Lolita II, on the other hand is more a terracotta...

Makeup Monday! Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita’

Hi everyone! I posted a review on the Kat Von D Lolita Lip Duo yesterday, but I didn’t include full face pictures. Well, I did at first, but then I deleted them because I just didn’t like how I looked. 😮 The lighting was bad and my face just looked ‘blah’. It was just one of those days. So I took some pics again today and these are slightly better… Today I’m wearing a super simple look with the original Lolita (see more pics below) on the lips, tomorrow I’ll wear Lolita II, so you can see the difference between...

Makeup and outfit I wore last weekend (a lot of you asked!)

There wasn’t an update yesterday, because I wasn’t feeling all that well (headache, sore throat, tummy ache), sorry about that! I’m still not feeling that great, but a lot of people asked me about my outfit last weekend during the girls day out here in San Diego (check out that post, if you haven’t yet!), so I figured I’d let you all know the details through here. 🙂 My outfit My black, short-sleeved romper with pockets from Primark (pre-haircut) My outfit was a black, short-sleeved romper with pockets that I got from Primark last year in the Netherlands. Very comfortable...

Makeup Monday: what happens when you apply your makeup in a rush

It’s Monday! Are you ready for a whole new week? I’m not. I went to bed with a headache and I woke up with it. Ugh! I was planning on writing a review today, but that’s going to work. Instead, I’m doing another Makeup Monday. Even though my makeup looked kind of cakey yesterday, I decided to post these anyway. I was in a rush and I think I applied too much foundation and I didn’t blend it well. You can visibly see the product on top my face, especially in pictures. C’est la vie, right? We all make mistakes…I...

Ready for Fall: a 10-minute makeup look with dark lips!

It’s officially Fall! Even though you can’t really tell from the weather where I live, yesterday marked the first day of Fall. In the beauty world Fall means dark lip colors! I’m not the kind of person who follows trends (ok, maybe just a little…), but I do like a dark lip once in awhile, especially around this time of year. I received a couple of lip lacquers from Makeup Revolution USA, which you can now find at Ulta stores and one of them really caught my eye! The shade is called ‘Vamp’ and it’s a very deep purple. What...
