Social Nomads influencer workshop

So last week I attended the ‘Create Content like an Influencer’ workshop by Social Nomads. Social Nomads is a company set up by Lynn form @whoisthatblonde, a former model and now influencer who earns her money through social media. It’s not my goal or anything to become an ‘influencer’, although it would be nice since I already really like creating nice pics for my instagram (and blog). I invited Britt with me, a girl I met through a very close facebook group. We never met before, but I really liked her instagram and thought she would like to join me and she did :). The workshop consisted of information and tips on how to grow your engagement by creating a nice feed, good photos and being active. Although I already knew quite a lot and I have my own way of editing my photos, the workshop was very helpfull. We also got the time to take some photos and who ever had the ‘best’ picture and used the tips to take the picture, won a lunch and photo session with Lynn herself. Unfortunately I didn’t win, but she did post my picture in her instagram stories. Thank Lynn (and Mailili) for the nice and educational afternoon!

Colors and gold glitter

How do you like my look for last Saturdays clubnight? It took me a while to get my face and hair to look like this but it was worth it! I took some fake orange hair and braided it into a tight braid. Makeup wise I pretty much always do it like this. Sometimes I switch eyeshadow colors, highlighter and lip colors, but most of the time it’s something gold/brown/neutral toned like this. The super pretty face jewels are from my new fav online glitter shop Get Glitter Baby and the catsuit is by Jaded London 😊

Festival style

Another look at Thalia with Get Glitter Baby! Loved this crazy and colorful look with the braids and orange fake hair. Got such a festival feeling looking like this. I took out the extensions very carefully to maybe use them again at Mysteryland since the pants I’ll be wearing there are army print but with orange and brown… What do you think?

OhLaLa!

Tonight was the show we came to Paris for: OhLaLa at the Folies Bergere! My collegue Jean Passos did such an amazing job (as he always does)! This show was completely different from anything I’ve ever seen before. Very sexy and sensual, but done in a very artistic and beautiful way. I’d love to be in an OhLaLa show one day!

Naked Smoky

Wooohoooo I am so excited!! Last weekend my brother and his gf went to Paris to celebrate their 2 year anniversary and they brought me the brand new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette! Okay I admit I asked them to get it for me haha.

Let me show you the beautiful packaging and amazing shadows!

The colors!

As you can see this palette is mostly cool-toned. Also there is a mix of matte and shimmery and/or glittery shadows. Myself I like to switch between matte and shimmery and I also love to combine them. I already own the original Naked palette which is mostly warm toned and the Naked Basics 2 which only has earth/neutral tones which are all matte, so this is a great addition to my Naked family :).

The smudge side of the brush. // De smudge kant van de kwast.

The brush has very soft bristles! The blending side is the perfect size to blend in the crease and the smudge side is perfect for smudging out the lower lashline. SCORE!

On the swatches below you can see the color pay-off. I applied all shadows on my bare skin and also on top of the UD Primer Potion to see if there is any difference. The top part of each swatch is on bare skin, the bottom half is with the UD PP underneath.

You can see that they are all highly pigmented. The shadows are all very soft. I do think that the matte shades are a little bit harder to get a nice color pay-off from. It just takes a little more time to layer them to have them show up more. The others are all just one swipe! I haven’t done a look just yet since I got it today, but I’m sure I’m gonna love this palette so much. The colors are right up my street so I’m gonna get so much use out of it. It’s also perfect for perfomances, since there are some amazing darker colors in it.

I am super happy with my new palette! Do you think you will purchase this? And which Naked palette do you prefer?

Available at Sephora. Available in the Netherlands next month, at Ici Paris XL Kalverstraat Amsterdam only.

49,95 euro.
