EOTD: Flawless part 3

Happy Monday! How have you been?
I'm back with another make-up look that I made using the Original Flawless palette by Make-up Revolution.
This will probably be one of the last looks I make with the Flawless palette.
Next week I'll start doing make-up looks using the Flawless 2 palette, which I haven't used for a look yet so that's something to look out for!
 
 
Today's look is another "darker", but soft look. I used a taupe eyeshadow in the crease and a chocolate brown eyeshadow in the outer corner of the crease to darken it up. After blending, I used two shades of shimmery silver. The lightest shade in the inner corner of my eye and the darkest shade in the outer corner.
 
Instead of going for liquid eyeliner, I decided to go for pencil eyeliner. I smudged it out a little bit and applied mascara as a last step.
 

Thanks for reading!
I'll see you soon!

EOTD: Flawless smokey eyes

Hello everyone! How are you doing? Last week I showed you my Flawless make-up palette and I promised you I would have more make-up looks online soon.
Today I created a darker, smokey make-up look that I created using the green and silver eyeshadows in this palette.


I used brown and dark grey (almost black) eyeshadow in my crease and outer corner. My lid is covered in green eyeshadow in the outer part and grey glittery eyeshadow in the inner part. Because the look is quite dark, I decided not to apply winged eyeliner. I did apply mascara to both the upper and the lower lashline.


In the following pictures you can see the full face end result. What do you think of this look?
I'll be back soon with more! 


Have a good day!

Revolution Flawless 2 palette ♥

Happy May!
Last week I showed you my newest make-up palette called "Flawless" by Revolution. And damn, that palette was indeed flawless. It impressed me so much that I decided to get the second "Flawless" palette.

The hot pink packaging doesn't shy away for anything or anyone, although the colours inside are a bit more neutral than the previous palette. Aside from a couple very bright copper and hot pinks, this palette exists mostly out of matte, cool-toned neutral shades. A few really nice blending colours, plenty of highlight colours and of course some shades to darken up your ideal look.


This is what the eyeshadow palette looks like. The colours in the right upper corner immediately caught my eye. They are very vibrant and bright, just how I like them. The colours on the left are taupes and browns, and plenty of different shades that can be used for blending or highlighting the browbone. I don't think I have any palette with this much blending colours. I love that they're in here though, you can make or break your look by using (or not using) a transitioning colour.
 
 
I swatched a couple of the eyeshadows from this palette. As you can see, the lighter shades and the matt eyeshadows are a little less pigmented than the darker or brighter colours. You might have to put a little more work in building up the intensity of the colours.
The black shades in this palette give a bit of fall out, but surprisingly, not much. The pigmentation of the other eyeshadows is good.
 

 I will be back soon with (-hopefully a ton of-) new looks!
 
Have a great day! See you soon!

Lifestyle: Moving in together!

Since I was 17, I have moved around quite a bit. The first time I moved away from my parents was to go to college. I lived in a tiny studio that I shared with roommates for a couple of years. Then, my sister and I got an apartment together, but as she moved out, I had to find a new place.

I have been living right in the center of Bruges for over a year now and as I got a first full time job - and a steady relationship- , I decided that maybe I should look for a bit of a bigger space.
My boyfriend has asked me to move in together and we got an apartment a couple of weeks ago!

I'll keep you up to date on moving and am even thinking about doing a couple of posts, showing you my interior and how I organize everything. Let me know if you like the idea! I'll see you soon!


 
 
Have a good day! Be happy!

I ♥ Make-up Naked Chocolate palette review!

When I first got this palette, I was scared to use it. It almost looked too perfect. When I did the burgundy make-up look I was very pleasantly surprised and that's why I want to review it for you.
 
I only got the Naked Chocolate palette, but I ♥ Make-up cosmetics has a couple different versions of this palette too.
 

This is what the eyeshadows look like. A few mattes and a couple of shimmery shades. Some dark tones and some lighter ones. There are 16 different shades in this palette.
 

Here are some of the swatches. The shimmery colours are very pigmented but you need to build up the intensity of the matt eyeshadows.
 
 
I really like this palette. I certainly enjoyed using it the first time and have been trying to create more new looks with it. I'll be back soon with some more make-up looks and reviews!
Have a lovely day!
