the filter struggle

Ugh the always on-going filter struggle! I bought pre-sets from Dutch influencer Rianne Meijer and I’m really enjoying using them so far. BUT sometimes it’s sooo hard to choose! Which do you like better?

Here I am at the Galgenwaard stadium from FC Utrecht. I’m having a show here today for one of their main sponsors, Dassy. It’s a really nice location even though I prefer the Ajax ArenA of course 😛 Next Thursday I will also be performing for Dassy but then the event will take place at the Atomium in Brussels. Love those out-of-the-country trips to perform!

green and asian

Asian themed clubnight yesterday! Had this umbrella in my closet for the loooongest time now and could finally use it! It fitted perfect with this theme. How slick are my wings tho wuhu! Took them a little more to the side than I usually do to create a little bit of a different look and I think I did quite a good job 😊

vegas style

This was my outfit in the champagne glass! It was a Las Vegas themed night and the gold and glitter fitted very well. Don’t worry; before getting into the glass I took off my heels and the cardigan otherwise I wouldn’t be able to move in the glass haha. The top is from Hunkemoller which I spiced up myself with the rhinestones. The same for the underwear only that is from Primark. Put some more glitters on my eyes and fixed a high ponytail and the look was complete! I loooove it! What do you think?

icey

All white err-thaaang! Obviously the theme was snowy, icey, white. Tonight it was Global Beats x Snow Globe time! Of course that meant make-up playtime for me so I added some silver glitter to the eyes and some snowflakey things to the cheeks/temples. Thought it was kinda cute 🙂

Greens

Serious vs smiley face. Which do you like better? I’ve come to like my smile more, I used to really not like it tbh. I think I’ve come to a point that I’m accepting myself more and more, loving the way I am, loving how my mom and dad created me and how I am a mixture of them both.

Well that suddenly got a little sentimental. Anyways these pics were taking during another clubnight at Villa Thalia in Rotterdam, my second home for the past 4 years. I’m still enjoying everytime I get to work there. I’ve had some problems with  my motivation during the years I’ve been working there and I’m really thankful for the fact that they still believe in me!

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?

Chloe faye

I didn’t expect myself to say this at this point but; I bought my first Chloé bag! It’s the Faye medium and it has all these beautiful cutouts which create a pineapple too! I got it at Paul Warmer in Amsterdam. This was really a case of unexpectedly walking into a dream bag. I really didn’t intend to buy anything like this bag that day, but when I saw it I really couldn’t leave it there. I’m so so happy with it. I combined it with my new Zara dress which was on sale and one of my fav comfy pair of heels to wear from Primark. 

By the way these pics were taken after I came back from a show and I still had my makeup on and it was golden hour so I really wanted to take some pics! So that explaines my glittery eyes, which btw you can get from Laguna Cosmetics! :))

What is your dream bag? Comment below!

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 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.

Permanente make-up wenkbrauwen poging 3

Zoals ik eerder al eens een artikel schreef en foto’s liet zien van toen ik net weer ‘permanente’ wenkbrauwen had laten zetten, ben ik eergisteren weer naar The BeautyLounge in Schiedam geweest. Helaas had het ook de tweede keer amper gepakt, dus gingen we nog 1 poging doen. Ook nu deed het weer best heel veel zeer maar het resultaat mag er zijn! Nu is het nogmaals ongeveer 1,5 week wachten tot alle korstjes er af zijn gevallen. Ik hoop zo dat de inkt nu wel heeft gepakt, want ik vind het zo mooi! En wat lijkt het mij heerlijk om minimaal 2 jaar niks meer aan mijn wenkbrauwen te hoeven doen, yiha! Nu zal ik echt over 2 weken met een update komen. Voor nu een kort filmpje van toen het net was gezet. Je ziet de wondjes en wat wondvocht goed zitten. Ah wat hoop ik toch dat het nu wel goed gaat en anders ben ik echt een van de weinige pechvogels was permanente make-up betreft.
