Let’s talk about make-up. As a girl I always loved to try my mums make-up. To keep me quiet she gave me her make up and allowed me to make her prettier. Of course she ended up looking like a make-up monster. When I was fourteen I was allowed to use make-up, but only mascara, eyeshadow and powder. I used to go to the local HEMA store and buy a new stuff. Now, many years later, I get my make-up mostly from Lancome and L’oreal Paris. Lancome’s Teint Miracle and Hypnose mascara are the only products from Lancome that I use on daily basis. I love the light structure of Teint Miracle, it is easy to apply and feels like you have nothing on your skin. Hypnose mascara is a favorite as well. It gives the right volume, lengthens properly and adds a little drama 😉
From L’Oreal Paris I almost use everything. I recently bought a lipstick form the Color Riche line and I’m definitely in love with it. It’s just the right red that I was looking for. I also use the eyeshadows from Color Riche Smoky Die for Chocolate 302 and Smoky Place Vendome 306 for a natural smokey eye effect. Super Liner perfect Slim from L’Oreal Paris is the perfect liner for everyday use as well. My favorite nail polish colors from L’Oreal Paris Color Riche are Scarlet Vamp 404, Jolie Brunette 110 and topcoat Goldleaf 920.
I don’t like to buy only expensive make up just because it is cool to have them, like a whole collection of MAC Lipsticks. You have to be able to play and experiment with it and I woundn’t waste my expensive make-up just to practice smokey eye effect. My make-up varies between affordable brands like GOSH and L’Oreal and expensive brands like Lancome, Chanel, Lancaster & Guerlain.
What are your favorite make-up brands and which one is the most important to you that you just can’t live without?

I’ve already told you about my shoe addiction, but I didn’t tell you about my magazine addiction. Everytime I walk in a bookstore, I have to buy a magazine, it’s like if I won’t get it, I can’t leave the store. I spent most of my money to magazines and after reading them I just put it in a pink box and that’s it. Sometimes I just read them a thousand times over or just cut in it. It’s not only in Holland, but also when I go on holiday or if someone from USA comes to visit us, I ask for VOGUE or ELLE magazine. Sadly Holland doesn’t have it’s own VOGUE, so I only read ELLE, Glamour, l’officiel and Jackie. I’ve the British VOGUE & ELLE, the Russian VOGUE & ELLE and of course the American VOGUE!
Everyone has an addiction. For some it’s coffee, or chocolate, or music, but for some it’s Shoes! It doesn’t matter what kind of brand they are, they have to be original and fabulous.
I think that I’m the worst shoe-addict, because I don’t wear heels everyday. I have like 6 pairs of heels( I know it’s not much), eventhough I’m not wearing them all the time, I keep telling my mom that it’s not enough and beg her to buy me new one.
The reason why I don’t wear heels everyday, is because of their height. I’m not used to walk on them the whole day. I really want to wear heels to school, but most of the time I’m from 08.30 am till 05.00 pm at school, and it’s not easy to race to the next class with a bag with a weight of 10 kilo’s and wearing heels.
I think that my addiction isn’t only about having shoes, I also love to spot shoes and stare at it for a while and wake up from my dream and walk further. It feels like shoes feed me more than food does. I love to have a pair of killerheels in my hands a fell them and smell them, I know it sounds freaky, but I LOVE it!
The only bad thing about my addiction is, I can’t always get the shoes that I want, like Louboutins, or Jimmy Choo’s. So thank God the internet exist, so I can look on my screen and drool. So every year on my birthday, before a blow the candles on my cake, I wish for a pair of Louboutins( feel free if you want to buy me those amazing shoes)
But I’m sure that one day I would be able to buy Loubs for me and I think that I won’t keep it at one, but I’m gonna buy moreeeee =]
