MAKE-UP | L'Oréal Infallible Lipstick


Hey there!

Do you know that awkward moment when you take a sip of your drink and you see that line of lipstick on the glass, then you quickly try to wipe it away and your hand is kind of becoming a different colour? Well I do, especially when I go out.
When I go out to wherever, I don’t like to always be afraid for my lipstick wearing off weirdly. My friend recommended me the l'oréal Infallible Lipstick, when she goes out clubbing it will still be there sitting perfect on the lips the next morning. Yeah okay, it’s hard to take off, I saw that when I got home trying to wash the swatches of the different colours off.

MAKE-UP | Mac studio fix powder foundation

Hey there,

I was looking for a new foundation, which would last me the whole school day. I decided to invest in a good foundation and since I only have an hour to get ready, I wanted something quick and efficient. Also, my skin is really clearing up and it’s a lot easier to work with. I wanted something natural looking and long lasting, so I came out at mac’s studio fix powder foundation in NC30.

MUSIC | Hozier


Yesterday a friend of my told me to listen to this one artist, she sort of became obsessed with him after hearing his most popular song. So, I’ve listened to it and I thought it was quite interesting. I wasn’t really sure what I thought of it at first, but then I listened it again and I tried to understand what he was singing about. The lyrics are the biggest part what make this song so great, because you really have so much meaning to it.

Andrew Hozier-Byrne, better known as just Hozier, is an Irish Musician and the song I was talking about was Take me to church. Hozier is from Ireland's County Wicklow, which is close to Dublin. I also found out that he was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990 and that he’s always hearing that, so I thought I would just join the crowd and write it down.
I am really bad at giving a song a genre so I am just copying this, but his genres are blues, soul and Indie rock. Apparently he inherited his blue roots from his dad, who was always playing the blues in Dublin. Take me to church became a huge hit on YouTube in 2013 and it only went upwards from there.
 

Take me to church was a real statement, it makes you realize how homosexuality is still an issue and how awful it is. Here in the Netherlands homosexuality is for the most part accepted, we have a whole pride for them! We still have some black sheep’s under us of course, but you don’t really get discriminated or laughed at anymore.
This song makes me think about how it might be in other countries, how they still have a long way to go to acceptance. I think if you really try to focus on the song and the clip you have to feel the touchy feelings, you see two lovers got tracked down and beaten.


Q: Have you ever heard from this artist and what do you think about the songs?

SHOPPING | Beauty wishlist October

1. Mac Mocha blush
I am looking for a really nice natural blush which is not too pink, and this one looks absolutely stunning. I am however holding back because of the price, I think it’s possible to find a cheaper alternative.

2. Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder
This bronzer is so famous at the Internet and that makes me want to try it, don’t worry it’s not my tenth bronzer. I am actually looking for a good bronzer, which is not to orange. This seems to fit so.. Yeah.

3. Nude lip liner
I think a lip liner makes everyone’s lips look better, but I always felt that lip liners are drying. I want to give them another try and want to find a really gorgeous nude lip liner, which isn’t drying. Do you guys have any recommendations maybe?

4. Mac pro longwear concealer

Normally I don’t really wear foundation, just some concealer. However, no concealer lasts all school day. My skin is not perfect, I have dark under eye circles and a few spots here and there. I want to hide them all day long and this concealer is so hyped up, it must be good.

5. Essie nailpolish
I recently lost my Essie virginity, okay that sounds wrong. This summer I’ve tried my first Essie nail polish and it lasts so well! Normally I don’t bother with nail polish since it won’t last 2 days, Essie however lasts for 5 days. I even got complimented for my nails after a week long of wear!

6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal
I think a nude eye pencil in your waterline makes you look so much more awake, like you have got 2 more hours of sleep. This is again a really hyped up product, which everyone likes. I am just a faller for recommendations, okay?

7. Rimmel moisture renew lipstick spotlight beige nude delight
I don’t know why, but whenever I am looking for a nude I come out with a red. Good job, me. I saw this lipstick a few times by thebeautycrush and she said that she liked it. I normally find that a nude is too pale for me, so since she is a bit more tanned then me, her nudes might be darkes? Yes, no? It makes sense to me.

LIFESTYLE | Vanilla Chai Latte



Hey there,
Autumn is coming and so are the hot drinks, last week I saw a video of essiebutton making a vanilla chai and I decided I wanted to try it. However, I didn’t had all the ingredients in house and I was to lazy to get it, so it’s my spin of the vanilla chai latte!

The recipe
2 cups water
2 peppercorns
a tiny bit of cardamom powder
1 cinnamon Stick
1 teaspoon of speculaas spices
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
2 tea bags
1 spoon of brown sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup milk

In the Netherlands we never drink tea with milk, I never tried it in my life. This drink doesn’t taste like tea anymore, it’s however really, REALLY good! Also, I wrote down 2 teabags, because I am still trying different teas wit hit and I am not sure yet which one is the best. The first time I made it with oranges tea and this time I made it with green tea, I think I prefer the green tea. With the oranges tea it was really good and quite a unique taste, but a bit too sweet for me.


Q: Did you ever made this drink and if so, which tea do you prefer with it?

Hey there!
I normally post every Friday and I know it’s Sunday now, so I am sorry. I am really busy with schoolwork, but it’s no excuse.

Anyway, my lips are so dry and cracked lately. It’s really driving me nuts, but somehow nothing really works to get them moisturised again. I’ve red so many good things about the clinique chubby stick moisturizing lip colour balm and I decided to check it out. I know, I am really late to the party.
