My favorite mink false eyelashes by ESQIDO Lashes

Long time no see! I’m here though. I haven’t been posting any makeup looks, because my looks have been pretty much the same. Boring, I know! I’ve been using my (all time) favorites products, but I’ve also been using makeup that I’m simply trying to use up. What I’ve been really into lately, is experimenting more with false eyelashes! I don’t wear false lashes every day, but I do like them when I go out at night. It’s amazing how something simple like eyelashes can change your whole look. I do have to admit, I still have a hard time...

The set is actually on QVC right now as Today’s Special Value, so I thought this would be a good time to share my pictures and thoughts.

Guest blog: Contouring sticks, a basic guide for beginner users

Contouring as a beauty buzzword and concept may feel like it’s relatively new. After all, it isn’t until after Kim Kardashian made it popular did the term and practice begin to pick up in the mainstream beauty community. However, the art of using makeup to enhance facial structure and provide shape to certain areas of the face has existed for centuries. Its origins can be traced all the way back to the mid-1500s when stage actors in England during the time of Queen Elizabeth I would apply black soot and chalk to their faces so that their audience can see...

FBE’s monthly beauty giveaway + throwback pics of our son’s first day of school

Last time I was here a few days ago and I mentioned that Mason (5) had started kindergarten (kleuterschool, in Dutch). I promised to post some pics of him on Instagram, but like with most of my promises recently…I didn’t keep it (sadly). I’ve actually been off social media for a while now and it’s kind of a ‘step’ to get back on… I have been checking Facebook once in a while, but that’s about it. Because I didn’t post these pics there, I decided to put them here instead. So here’s Mason posing and holding different objects on his...

My current beauty favorites. All MAKEUP!

I’m typing this while there’s an eclipse going on. If I didn’t have small kids I would go out with special glasses and take pictures, but taking them out for this purpose is not an option right now. Haha! 😀 Anyway, here’s a quick blog post to show you guys which products I’ve been enjoying lately, my beauty favorites. I’ve been kinda slacking when it comes to writing full reviews (there’s never enough time in a day), so I hope you’ll enjoy these mini-reviews. If you do want more info, swatches or other pics…let me know. This is part 1,...

Review: Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara (NEW at Sephora)

Have you heard of the new Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancome? It’s new at Sephora. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it through Influenster and I’ve been trying it every day since I got back from the US. I like it a lot. 🙂 It’s made to give your lashes up to 12x the volume and last for up to 24 hours thanks to its brush and formula. Below are more details and my own before and after pictures. How it’s described “Ideal for all-day wear, this mascara doesn’t require touch-ups and doesn’t flake or smudge. This...

On my nails: KIKO Smart Nail Lacquer in ‘Dark Chocolate’

It’s been forever since I showed you my nails! Honestly, there wasn’t much to show. I’ve been keeping them short (because of the baby) and I also haven’t been wearing any exciting colors. Just the same nudes over and over again. And sometimes just a clear polish. The other day I picked up a few things at KIKO Cosmetics (there’s an actual store near my parents’ house), including two nail polishes. I posted a picture of my purchases on my Instagram. I don’t need any more polishes, but I couldn’t resist since they were on sale (just 2 Euro). One...

IT’s on! IT Cosmetics is QVC Today’s Special Value #ByeByeBreakthroughs

As you know I love IT Cosmetics. Over the years this brand has become a staple in my makeup collection. The best way to buy IT Cosmetics is during a sale on their website, or at Ulta (you’ll earn points) or on QVC. And guess what? The brand is QVC’s Today’s Special Value today. 😀 Today, it started at midnight ET, you’ll be able to purchase a 5-piece set for an awesome price. As I’m writing this, I don’t exactly know yet what the price will be, but IT Cosmetics has been on QVC before and it’s always of GREAT...
