My Spring to Summer Make-Up Look

Hey my loves,

I don’t know about you, but I am about ready for summer. It is already quite warm and sunny where I am from, but I want to actually enjoy the sun, which is not quite possibly with two Master degree’s in the making. So instead, I thought I pay homage to the sun the way I know it – with make-up.

As I am not yet tan enough for a full bronzed look I went with a nice touch of color on the eyes, subtle enough for everyday life, but spicy and summer-y enough to get me through my long to-do lists. I love doing colorful eye-looks like this as it is an easy integration of a touch of color to an otherwise boring look. I did not want to go overboard, so I chose a lipstick and lipgloss combo that would be a nice add to the rest of the make-up.

To get the tone I wanted I blended two colors – I used the two red tones in the NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette, which gave me this gorgeous pink color.

As you can see I focused the colors in the inner corner and blended it out, then I added highlighter on top of it, since the shadow itself was a matte finish. I used the light-gold shadow of the palette as well as the highlight shade of the Too Faced palette. I also added a red-brown color on the top lash line, also from the same NYX shadow palette.

It may be silly to ask, but I do it anyways just out of curiosity. Do you guys have plans this summer? Let me know in the comments.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Quick and Effortless Summer Makeup

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you my go-to make up for those super hot summer days. All you need is about five to seven products.

When it is super hot outside I like to stick to a super simple and easy makeup. I make sure to even out my skin tone. I use a concealer for that.

But before concealer I use primer.

I’ve been using the Maybelline – Superstay Primer. It makes my makeup last all day and even though I will only be using concealer I like to have a base for it.

I basically spot conceal and get rid of my dark circles. Currently I have been using the Maybelline – Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I use my finger to apply the concealer onto the spots and my under-eye.

To set my under-eye concealer I use a brightening powder.

Currently I have been trying out the Maybelline – Baking + Brightening Loose Powder. I only use it under my eyes and on my t-zone. On most days I don’t have to set the rest of the concealer, I only sweat in my t-zone and have creasing under my eyes.

I either apply blush or bronzer.

On hot days I don’t like to have too many powders on my face and because I haven’t found great drugstore liquid blushes or bronzer I usually stick to one of the powder versions. I either use my Too Faced – Sweethearts Blush in Something About Berry or a mix of the three bronzer shades in my Maybelline – Bronzer Palette.

Highlight is a must.

In summer I can’t live without highlighter. I’m currently using the MAC – Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. I apply on the tops of my cheek bones, the tip of my nose, the inner corner of my eye, my brow bone and on my cupids bow.

Waterproof Mascara is a life saver.

I always use waterproof mascara, but I especially wear it in summer. Sweat will tear off any other mascara and I will look like a panda. I’m using the Maybelline – Perfect Mascara.

Set and set again.

Last but not least, setting my makeup is one of the biggest MUST’s. I have to set my makeup or I will end up with nothing on my face in under an hour. I use the Maybelline – Super Stay Setting Spray. It works wonders for me.

Light dab of color for the lips.

Now lastly, I apply lipstick. I usually just dab whatever color I want for the day on my lips and that’s it. Currently I have been using the Gerard Cosmetics – Lipstick in Berry Smoothie or NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo.

Spring to Summer Makeup Look

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about the makeup look I’ve been wearing for the transition to summer. Where I’m leaving it’s currently a heat wave so we’ve been having temperatures up in the 25 C.

Processed with VSCO with dog2 preset

As per usual I like to keep it minimal for the everyday basis, especially because I’m usually out the entire day at Uni. What’s also important is a very long-lasting makeup and a sweat proof one, because – duh – it’s summer, so it’s usually hot. Haha xD

Here’s the makeup I used to create my look:


As you can see I’m currently loving a lot of Maybelline products and I think that’s amazing. I personally think they have really upped their game with their new products and I think that for their price they are amazing, long-lasting products.

For my eyes, I used a combination of the three bronzer shades in the Master Bronze Palette in the crease and under-eye. And a little bit of the gold from the palette on my lid.

My lip color varies on my mood and when I took that picture I felt bold so I went with a bright fuchsia color. I love the mattes from NYX, though I wish they were a little bit longer lasting.

What are your go-to makeup products for summer? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.

I wish you all a wonderful day!


Sweat Proof Makeup for Summer – 2016

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing my go-to, sweat proof makeup for summer. As you might have seen in my latest haul (link is going to be at the end of the entry) I recently bought a few items to perfect my makeup for summer.

I love wearing makeup but during the hot summer days it can get quite annoying. I’ve found a way to wear makeup that works perfect for me. So here you go:


Everything I used:



  1. Start of with a clean and moisturized skin.
  2. Apply a thin layer of Nivea Men – After Shave Balsam in Sensitive.
  3. Follow with a primer that works for you. I found that Rimmel London – Fix & Protect Make Up Primer with SPF 25 works the best for me.
  4. Color correct if you think you need it. Long nights, long days, little sleep – always means tired skin for me, so I always use a brightening color corrector. Mine is by NYX and it’s the Color Correcting Liquid in Yellow.
  5. Apply your foundation or in my case the Bourjois – 123 Perfect CC Cream in light beige.
  6. Conceal any blemishes and dark circles. I find that the CC Cream covers up my dark circles pretty good so I use less concealer under my eyes than I would normally do. Also I don’t conceal very heavy because I think it gives off a more natural look.
  7. I always contour or at least bronze up my face to give back a bit of definition. I’ve used the Maybelline – Master Contour by Facestudio in Medium to contour my cheeks, forehead, jawline and very lightly my nose. SAMSUNG CSC
  8. Now it’s time to set everything. I start off by baking my under eye are and lightly dust loose powder over my t-zone with my Rimmel London – Match Perfection Loose Powder in Transparent.
  9. Then I set my contour and lightly bronze up my face with the Bourjois – Bronzing Powder in 52 Peaux mates.
  10. Moving onto blush, I used KIKO Milano – Rebel Bouncy Blush in Treasure Rose.
  11. At last I highlight the top of my cheek bones, my cupids bow and the tip of my nose with my trusted The Balm – Mary Lou Manizer. SAMSUNG CSC
  12. I don’t like to wear a lot of eye makeup because I tend to get very oily during summer time. So I only use one sparkly eyeshadow all over in this case the KIKO Milano – Eyeshadow in 118. (at least during the daytime)
  13. For my brows I use the Rimmel London – Brow this Way Brow Gel in Medium Brown.
  14. And I always use a waterproof mascara, this time I used the L’Oréal Paris – Volume Million Lashes Mascara in Black.SAMSUNG CSC
  15. I love wearing lipsticks and during summer I love to wear popping, bright colors just like the combination of these two products: p2 – Perfect Look Lipliner in 131 Raspberry and p2 – Pure Color Lipstick in 016 High Line.


I hope you enjoyed this entry! If you did let me know in the comments and give this entry a thumbs up! I would really appreciate it.
