Unique Sins

Last Saturday I had two performances at the Unique Sins party in Huizen. I had a duo show with Jean Passos, my good friend and collegue and I also did I solo ring act. It was so much fun and I loved to do it! Hopefully more if these party-shows will come now!

Ik hoop dat hier meer optredens op feesten uit komen! Foto’s door Johan Vivié.

RiRi loves MAC: what I got

Yesterday the RiRi loves MAC fall collection came out and as a make-up lover I couldn’t resist getting something. I came home 2.30 at night because I had a show, but I was so scared it would sell out fast that I set my alarm at 8.40 in the morning so I could be in Amstelveen at Douglas at 10 when the store opened. I was 10 minutes late, but fortunately they still had everything. Then the deciding started.. 4 lipsticks, 2 lipliners, 2 browpencils, 2 eyeshadow quads, a lipglass, eyeliner, mascara, false lashes, blush, bronzer/blush duo, cream highlighter.. What to get? Everything looked so pretty with the rose gold packaging and the Rihanna logo on it.
I tried out the lipsticks: Nude was way too brown for me, Who’s That Chick too shimmery and orange, Talk That Talk way too dark for my skintone, but then RiRi Woo.. The lipstick that already came out once earlier this year and sold out within 3 hours was back in this collection. RiRi Woo is a very pretty, must-have matte red lipcolor which suits almost everybody. I don’t usually wear lipsticks, but I felt like I just really needed to get this one or I would regret it later. So I bought it, together with the lipliner to make sure I could make the perfect matte red lip. I think this combo will convince me to wear lipstick more often!

I am also a big bronzer lover. I use bronzer on an everyday base and the RiRi loves MAC collection had a bronzer/blush duo that looked very nice. I asked the woman at the MAC counter to apply it on my cheeks (which she did a horrible job at.. I had two brown stripes down my face..) and the colors looked beautiful. After looking at everything for some time and considering what to get, I also decided to get the bronzer/blush duo and I’m very happy I got it!

Poen de Wijs

How amazing and unreal is this.. Painter Poen de Wijs painted me and Li Ling for an exposition. He got in touch with Corpus and he really wanted to paint us. And so he did. I think it’s more than amazing how realistically and beautifully he did this. Poen is such an inspiration to all of us and I am so honored to be painted by him. On the 7th of September the exposition will take place, but I’m so sad I can’t be there. I’ll be performing in the Magical Dinnershow in De Bonte Wever.
Li Ling and I also did a special duo contortion act (in cooperation with Mariette Hehakaya) for Poen on a big day where we were celebrating Poens birthday and showed our appreciation for his work. Also John Vijlbrief made a short movie about the choreography from Corpus which Li Ling and I performed. All I can say is ENJOY these beautiful pieces of art.. // Hoe mooi en onwerkelijk is dit.. Schilder Poen de Wijs heeft mij en Li Ling geschilderd voor een expositie. Hij kwam in contact met Corpus en hij wilde ons heel graag schilderen. En dat deed hij. Ik vind het meer dan ongelofelijk hoe realistisch en mooi hij dit heeft gedaan. Poen is zo een grote inspiratie voor ons allemaal en ik voel mij enorm vereerd dat ik door hem geschilderd ben. Op 7 september zal de expositie plaatsvinden, maar helaas kan ik er niet bij zijn. Ik moet dan optreden in de Magical Dinnershow van De Bonte Wever in Assen.
Li Ling en ik hebben ook een speciale duo contortion act (in samenwerking met Mariette Hehakaya) voor Poen opgevoerd op een dag waarop we Poen zijn verjaardag vierden en onze waardering voor zijn werk lieten zien. Ook heeft John Vijlbrief een prachtige film gemaakt van de choreografie van Corpus die Li Ling en ik uitvoerden. Ik kan niet meer zeggen dan: GENIET van deze prachtige kunst..
