Beauty Empties February 2019

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. A few days ago I had a conversation with Lindsey (who blogs at Sustainably Savvy about green beauty and her zero waste journey) about the “right amount” of products to include into a Beauty Empties video. I mean, you basically need to get people interested in you talking about trash, that is hard work!     On top of that you don´t want to show too many products – I mean, I love watching empties, but if I see the video…

Foundation Review L´Oréal Perfect Match Foundation

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. You know I film my videos in advance sometimes. Way in advance, this time. I actually filmed it on February 3rd, which I remember so clearly because it was the day I got sick. See, despite having kids I don´t often catch their bugs, but that time it hit me hard and I was out for almost a week. Right now I am feeling fine and pity my past self for looks and voice, so no need for sympathy coming 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,…

Taking out the trash 16 – Empties February 2018

This blogpost contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. When I was filming this video, I was pretty content with myself. Not only did I like the way my hair looked – call me vain, but these things can make or break a day -, but I was satisfied with having yet another batch of products finished to show you. After starting to make a conscious effort to actually finish products and not let the last bit go to waste while saving it for a special day, I felt…

L´Oréal Super Liner Blackbuster – Practice makes perfect

Practice makes perfect, that is true for everything in life, makeup included. But some things are harder to practice than others. Take liquid liner for example. It is an obvious black line on your face. So if the practice isn´t there already, but you still need to leave the house that day, you are in a difficult situation. You could of course hide for a few days and draw a line over and over again. But that would be kind of excessive don´t you think? It does work though. Let´s…

Seasonal Makeup Challenge – Summer 2016

In case you missed the Spring Edition, here is the link to the post explaining what the Seasonal Makeup Challenge is all about.     For the rest of us, the rules as a quick reminder: The rules „At the beginning of a season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) I will choose some pieces of makeup from my stash and post them here. By the end of that season I shall post how well (or not) I’ve done using them up, and propose new pieces for the following season.“ (The Polished…

May 2016 Favorites

Before my Favorites-break I used to do “Favorite Face of..” posts, where I showed you my most worn makeup in the form of a miniature tutorial. But looking back now, only a few things that I used really were true favorites. Many of the things (like concealers or mascara) just got applied for the sake of finishing them. And on top of that my everyday makeup isn’t probably something you really want to see, as it is a little repetitive over time.     So I decided to go for…

Taking out the trash IV – April 2016 Empties

Again I have been collecting my empty skincare containers and the few bits of makeup that are actually not going to be used anymore and threw all in for a video.   Go get yourself a cup of tea, as it is a long one, but you will be rewarded with mini-reviews and a whole lot of dirty packaging.

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. Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/hcK6PxRyczo   Just like last month I decided to not only list all the products I reached for, but film a quick tutorial to show you the look my half-asleep self managed to create with them.
