Taking out the trash 17 – May Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. One in, two out, that was the rule I once tried to establish. And while I think I did pretty good in terms of skincare… No, seriously! I realized I didn’t have any cleansers in my back up drawers just the other day, something that I considered impossible a year ago.     So while I think I did pretty good in terms of skincare, I still can´t seem to go through my makeup. I throw out the odd…

Foundation Review Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup

This blog post may contain affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. The most efficient way to finish foundation? Apart from wearing it consistently, of course? Dropping the glass bottle on the bathroom tiles. And a great way to test the waterproof claims, too. How do I know that? Well, I did just that, a few weeks ago, when my bottle of Catrice 24 h Made to Stay makeup shattered on the tiles.     Just to be crystal clear: This is not the way I will be testing my foundations from…

New In Beauty February 2018

This blogpost contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer February is a weird month for me. On one hand it is filled with birthday celebrations (read here), on the other hand it is a transitional month at it´s worst. Lots of people complained about January dragging on, but at least January is proper winter! I get comfort from hot chocolate, warm blankets and dark lips, all the things that make winter worthwile. Once February arrives though, I get spring fever.     I want warm sun on my face,…

Face of Filming – My foundation and brow routine.

When I started making videos, I had no idea how different my makeup would look on camera as opposed to real life.     Of course I had heard people mention it, but as always you only ever really believe the things you experience yourself. So after a lot of trial and error, all documented on camera of course, I finally have settled for a routine I am content with.

July 2016 Favorites

As July is almost over, it is time for another favorites post. With the upcoming move (it is actually moving day today!) and the incredible heatwave we had, makeup had to be quick and minimal. Not that I am complaining about the heat, not in the slightest. I feel a lot more energetic and happy when the sun is out, even though our current flat with the big window fronts was probably not the best place to be throughout the day.     As far as skincare is concerned, I…

Catrice All Matt plus Shine Control Makeup – My love for labels

I love it when things are organized. Like in exactly labelled, filed and sorted away. When I started working at my ICU, still doing night shifts, I would spend them going through the documents, organizing them and making sure they were sorted by type and date when everything else was done.     It drove my coworker (male, spontaneous, chaotic – you get the drift) absolutely crazy, especially because I kept asking if he had done the same with his records already, pointing out the many benefits that would come from this system. We…

New In March 2016 – I have been shopping

I know, I know. I have told you many times that my collection is overflowing, that I really need to cut back on buying new stuff and that I own more skincare than any sane person probably should.   But in my defense: I really needed to restock on some things, and I DO have another Empties video just around the corner, so… Oh well, I just did a little haul-ing. Please click below if you want to see what I got. Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/sJmecc4w-jA

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.     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…),…

Inspired by … Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016

If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation. But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own. Dressing up and awkward posing included!   This months installment is the Dior Glowing Gardens Collection, which stood out to me due to the fact that the model was wearing yellow eyeshadow, paired with purple. To be honest, I didn’t own a yellow eyeshadow and don’t think it is a color…

Favorite Face of… January 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.
