Favorite Face of February 2016

If you are not familiar with the „Favorite Face of …“ series, click here for a little introduction. Short story even shorter, it is the makeup that I wore most during that month, featuring the favorite (as in most used) makeup products.

 

Brown eyes and a bright fuchsia lip. And an awkward face, because... why not?

Even though I don’t celebrate Valentines Day, I feel like February is the month were you really can´t escape the pinks. And even though pink usually looks either washed out on me or like I am trying to to Barbie-Cosplay (I wish I had that waist…), I managed to find a pink lip color I fell in love with to see me through this month.

And once again, I filmed everything for You Tube. Enjoy!

Favorite Face of… January 2016

Soft smokey eye tutorial – Favorite Face of December 2015

If you have been around for a while now, you may have gotten used to my „Favorite Face of…“ series. Of course I cant tell whether you are bored out of your mind or looking forward to my monthly makeup ramble, but I have been meaning to keep it up.

Soft brown smokey eye with a hint of purple

Now I have started this month with a yearly favorites, so the „Favorite Face of…“ is a little late and probably does no longer count as „December Favorites“, which is why I named it „Tutorial“ for the upload on You Tube.

Not very surprising it features a soft smokey eye, using browns and a hint of violet (I feel I have been wearing barely anything else this winter), paired with either a nude or a bolder lip.

You all know the disclaimers, I am no professional, just an enthusiastic amateur, both when it comes to makeup and to videos, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

Favorite products 2015 Part I – Skincare, hair care, body care

It is the final days of 2015, a time spend on reflecting and looking back, so I figured I´d share my musings with you and show you my favorite products of 2015.

To help you decide what you want to watch, I divided it into two videos: One featuring skin-, hair and body care and one talking all things makeup. That way I was able to keep them short(er) as well, which is always a bonus.

My top three holiday nail polishes – Glitters and red

Red is a shade that symbolizes Christmas more than anything else for me. The red leaves of the poinsettia, red lipstick and – of course – red nails.

Not just any red, of course. No burgundy red, no pink red, no, a true red, maybe with a hint of glitter. Only a hint, mind you, I really can´t be bothered with the whole glitter polish removal process.

A little glitter, a little red, a little gold - all I want for the holidays

As many of you may know already, I am currently at home. But as I  stated here, I wore makeup almost every single day to get me into a „work mindset“. Granted, it was a quick and easy look skipping foundation most days, but it was all I needed to feel ready to be productive. Read more

Many of you will know by now that I am usually not wearing much makeup when working. But as I am home at the moment (read here why), I was able to go all out and enjoy fall makeup at its finest.

Colors of autumn – My top three nail polish and lipstick picks

Being a self-proclaimed summer-lover I often forget how much I love to see the seasons changing.
Granted, I could do without the rain and the dull, grey days, but at least for a short time we were blessed with sun and blue skies.
Until the morning I sat down to write this post actually.
That day it started raining and hasn’t stopped since.

Colors of fall

But I digress.
The colorful leafs against the blue skies, the golden light from the evening sun, the grapes and the apples, all that makes me long for deeper, richer colors, so I took the opportunity to sort out my stash and pick a few shades that I will enjoy wearing for the time to come. Read more

Favorite Face of … September

Favorite Face of September, a bronze smokey eye

As you may know, I spend a big part of September in France, soaking up the sun and enjoying Chocolate Chaud and Pain au Chocolate.
I wasn’t really in fall mood, but when I did the research for my last blogpost, an upcoming trend immediately caught my attention: The bronze smokey eye!

I figured it was beach appropriate as well as travel friendly, because I realized I owned the perfect palette already. Read more
