Oh I am so behind on this series, I apologize. We are now on the third palette for my #OnePaletteOneWeek challenge as a part of the #100DaysOfMakeup challenge I’m doing and we’re talking about the gorgeous Lime Crime Venus II palette. If you’re new around here, in this series I wear only one eyeshadow palette for a whole week and try to come up with different looks each time. This allows me to push myself to be creative and at the same time give more love to all the eyeshadows in my collection. To catch up on the other episodes, click here.
I have a lot of makeup, and a lot of eyeshadows for that matter. I know, shocking huh? Well, to make sure all my eyeshadows get some good use, I decided to start the #OnePaletteOneWeek challenge. Ok, it’s not an official challenge, but I want to challenge myself to change it up a bit and stop wearing always my same 10 Makeup Geek eyeshadows all the time. So since last week I decided I am going to use only one eyeshadow palette for one whole week and try to vary the eye looks as much as I can.
The first palette I picked for this challenge is the stunning Lime Crime Venus 1 palette which I showed you in my latest haul (here). Ok, not so adventurous you’ll say, colors you always wear Alice. That’s very true, but I wanted to ease myself into it. The palette is absolutely stunning and after wearing it for a week every day, I also have a mini review at the end of this post.
I just turned one year younger! ahahah, I wished. Friday was my birthday and I recorded myself getting ready for a few beers and dinner out. As I am usual to do, for special occasions I stay on the safe side and wear “my” colors, so this makeup tutorial is for a burgundy smokey eye and a deep red lips. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel so that you don’t miss any future videos.
As usually I’m late for the bus, but here is my first installment of the #FallInLoveTAG2 (intro here), created by the lovely Marta from Caffe Latte For Breakfast. I’m so happy to join this year as well (read last year’s posts here), because I love Fall and I love the prompts that Marta comes up with! Well the first episode of this year’s tag is Evergreen: we’re talking about our Fall favorites when it comes to makeup and fashion. We’re talking about the pieces that you can’t live without for the season. Let’s get into it!
October is here, which means my birthday is close and it is time for my September Beauty Favorites. This month has been quite an intense one with the move overseas and finding an apartment and some sort of normality out here. Nevertheless new experiences, friendships and beauty discoveries were made, so let’s take a look at the makeup I have been loving this month.
We’re officially a week into Fall and my hands were itching to do something different makeup-wise. So when Natyra on Instagram (@natyrabeauty) suggested a collaboration themed on Gods and Goddesses, I knew I was in. I have always believed in the power of nature, so I would have picked Mother Nature, but because Fall is my favorite season, I decided to homage it by picking the Goddess of Harvest for this fall makeup look.
Guilty, guilty I am guilty of buying makeup. But hey, YOLO! Jokes aside, I’ve been picking up bits since moving to the US at the beginning of the month and recorded a video to show them all to you guys! I hope you enjoy it and if you’re not subscribed to my Youtube channel, SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss future videos (and they’re coming!).

May May May!!! Finally some sun, lots of holidays (thank you catholic-dutch system!), a new job and a new beginning! I am so happy April is over, with its crazy cold November weather, lots of boring days and stress. Nevertheless, makeup made me very happy in April, since I got some really good new bits.
