Let’s talk about: Make-Up.


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 ūüėČ

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?

Letting go is hard, Holding on is harder.


We know that some things are not really good for us. Most of the time we try to get rid of that thing and ¬†do something that we enjoy and makes us feel good. Yet, it’s difficult to leave some people behind and move on. For example, when I’ve ordered milkshake and after drinking the most of it, the last bit doesn’t feel right. So I consider, should I drink the last bit and feel sick, or should I just throw it away? I throw it away and go on with what I was doing. It seems very easy with milkshake, but with people, it isn’t that easy.

How come that I easely can throw away something I really like and move on, but I can’t forget and leave behind that one particular person. The person you really like, maybe as a friend or maybe just more than that. I know that the longer I will care about this person, I will hurt myself. And because of that person I can’t seem to look further and live my life.

I ¬†think that the main reason why it is so hard to let someone go, is because we had such great memories together which we don’t want to lose. But we have to remember, you can lose someone who once was really important to you, but you’ll never lose the great memories you once had with him/her.

In fact, we hope that one day everything will be just like it was back then. We hope that the particular person will realise how you once were and how you are now. That he/she will realise how much it hurt you and come back to apologize and say that they never meant to end up like this.

But till that moment, we can’t sit and wait. We have to get ourself together and move on with our lives. Because no one guarantees that he/she will turn back to you. And if they won’t come back, you have to remember them as a great and lovely person you once knew.

Illustrations


I like to make some illustrations, mostly fashion illustrations. In the beginning it was really diffucult to make a sketch and draw that one picture what you have in your head, but practice makes perfect.  Here are some sketches which I made when I started till now. I took these pictures with my ipod and put them on instagram, so sorry for the bad quality.

 

Enjoyxx
