Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

A few days ago I gave some hair tips for rainy days. But the weather in the Netherlands is really inpredictable: it’s really sunny since Sunday! And of course you need sunglasses with this weather. I always thought sunglasses didn’t fit me, because of my face shape. But I found out that there are sunglasses for every face shape, so I wanted to share that with you!


If you have a square face, just like me, you should avoid sharp shapes because they emphasize the angles of your face. Round and oval glasses works the best for you, but some people can get away with cat eyes.


You’ll look the best with cat eyes.


When you have a long, narrow face, you should try oversized glasses. Round and square sunglasses looks the best on you.


Lucky you! Because your face is so balanced, every kind of glasses will look good on you!


You should avoid round or oval glasses, choose something with angles, like cat eyes or square (but with rounded edges) sunglasses.


If you have a wide forhead and narrow chin, round and cat’s-eyes look the best on you.


If you want to soften the angles of your face, you should try oval or round glasses.

I hope this will help you, thank you for reading! 🙂


Skin Care + Eye Drama Mascara

There are many things that will make your skin look healthier. Today I’ll tell you some of the things.

The first thing: don’t smoke! It will cause wrinkles and your skin will look older. You should also protect your skin from the sun, or it will have the same effects. You should always use a daycream with at least SPF 20 in it. A healthy diet and drinking lots of water will make your skin clear.

You should wash your face twice a day with a mild cleaning lotion. Don’t use soap, some residues will be left. And it’s really important that you don’t pop your pimples. Your skin will irritate even more, and it’ll lead to scarring. Try to touch your face as less as possible, you don’t want all the bacteria from your hands on your face.

Don’t ever use harsh products on your skin, even if you have a really oily skin. It will only damage your skin. Of course you want your skin to look healthy, but getting rid of pimples and damaging your skin isn’t the way to achieve a nice and healthy skin. I used harsh products for a while (think about Pro-Active), but since I used mild, oil-based products, my skin has become much more healthier. My pores are smaller, and I don’t have as many pimples anymore.

I hope this will help you, and remember: just be nice to your skin. 🙂


And now the second part: the mascara. Yesterday I introduced the Acid i-Divine Palette and the Eye Drama Mascara from Sleek MakeUP to you. I didn’t have time to make a nice look with the palette yet, but I tried out the mascara. I told you that I would make a picture of it, but I was very disappointed in it. It didn’t gave my lashes volume, it didn’t even make them longer! It just made them black. I won’t buy it again for sure.

I hope you’ll like the skin care tips. It’s too bad that I didn’t like the mascara, but I just felt like I needed to tell you this. Thank you for reading! 🙂

Sleek MakeUP Acid i-Divine Palette + Eye Drama

A few days ago, I ordered two things from Sleek MakeUP: the Acid i-Divine EyeShadow Palette and the Eye Drama Mascara in 881 Black Out Waterproof. I was surprised when it was delivered today, because it’s earlier than I expected.



The packaging of the Acid i-Divine EyeShadow Palette is really simple and neat, but it’s too bad that the Sleek logo won’t show up on the camera. This is my first Sleek palette, and I didn’t really know what to expect. I thought it would be bigger than this, but this is of course big enough and easy to take it with you. I ordered it for € 8,50 at the webshop of Sleek MakeUP.



Wow, look at these nice colors! Especially the neon colors, I love it! I think I can make a lot of fun looks with these. I love the neon trend, so I’ll try to make a wearable eyelook with the neon colors. And you’ll see some looks with the other colors as well!

Putting the neon colors aside, the purple and dark pink are really nice too. The matte white and black will be useful too, and I love the two blue colors with shimmers, they’re so beautiful! I think I’ll use the darker green and the shimmery grey less than the others, but of course these are nice too.

The eyeshadows are really pigmented! I like that, because the colors show really well. But I should be careful, I don’t want to put on too much colors.



And here is the Eye Drama Mascara in the color 881 Black Out Waterproof. The packaging is a real eyecatcher, with the pink and blue. It was only € 4,99, what’s really cheap for a mascara. It contains 6 ml.



The brush is really flexible, and the mascara is REALLY black. I haven’t used it yet, but I think I’ll like it. For some reason, I expected a really big brush, so I was surprised when it was a long, small brush. I hope this mascara will make my thin, short eyelashes stand out more.

Tomorrow I’ll show you how the mascara looks on my lashes, and maybe I’ll make a look with the palette too. I have to go to work tomorrow, so I won’t make a really bright look. Thank you for reading! 🙂

A while ago I got the Maybelline Eyestudio Bakd Duo as a gift. The colors are really beautiful, but I never really used them because I didn’t know how. Today I finally made a look with them. It’s just another everyday look, I didn’t use the colors wet so they’re pretty soft.

I used a bright pink color from Rimmel on my lips, 140 Tulip Pink. That’s why my eyes are so soft and simple. I like to match my make-up with my clothes, so I chose this pink look with my scarf with pink flowers.

I applied the right side of the Maybelline eyeshadow 80 Cosmic Black all over my eyelid. The color is a mix of light pink, bright pink, blue and purple. I used the big shader brush from the Bamboo Set from Zoeva.

With the liner brush from the same set I made a soft line along the lashes, I used the left side of the eyeshadow. It’s a black with a lot of shimmer.

I used this soft pink to highlight the inner corner and under my eyebrows. The eyeshadow is from Catrice, and I used the smaller shader from the bamboo set.

I used a liquid eyeliner from Miss Sporty to make a really thin line, and the mascara I used is the Sexy Curves mascara from Rimmel.

Because this is a really soft and simple look, I’ll make another look with the Maybelline Eyestudio Baked Duo in a few days. That one will be a night look. Thank you for reading! 🙂

Today I’ll show you my Eyes Of The Day. It is just a everyday look, so it’s nothing special. I had a hard time making a photo of them, but the photo’s still aren’t clear. Actually the colors are brighter.


The main color of this look is Amber Gold from Rituals. The other product I used are from cheap brands, some of them are probably only available in Europe. The products from MissSporty don’t have names, to I’ll discripe the color.

I applied Amber Gold all over my eyelid. I used an white/cream eyeshadow with shimmer from MissSporty for my inner corner and under my eyebrows, and a medium brown from MissSporty above the Amber Gold, in the crease. I used a little bit of a dark brown color from MissSpory to make a V-shape at the outer corner. I didn’t use too much, because I didn’t want the look to be too dark. I made a thin line with the gel eyeliner from Catrice, and I applied only a little bit of it on the waterline. The mascara I used is Sexy Curves from Rimmel. Of course you don’t need exactly these brands, you can use colors similar to these.

I’m still looking for a better mascara for my thin, short lashes, so suggestions are welcome! 🙂


My eyebrows are really thick, but I let them grow for a while to fill some holes (I pluckes out too much, haha). To finish the look, I used an orange blush from Rituals, On Fire and an orange lipstick fron Catrice, Princess Peach. Some people say brown, gold and orange don’t look good on blond people with a ligt skin, but I don’t think that’s true. You can wear these colors, if you just pick out one that fits you.

I hope you like this look, I’ll try to make better photo’s the next time.

I love eyeliner; it makes your eyelashes look fuller, and your eyes stand out more. Eyeliner can help you shape your eyes, make them look bigger and smaller, and you can make all kinds of looks with it. Yes, eyeliner is amazing.


Everyone knows the liquid eyeliner. This is my favorite eyeliner, because you can make thin, neat lines with it. If you’re comfortable with them, you can also make a perfect wing. But that’s the problem with this eyeliner: it’s the hardest eyeliner to apply, and it can turn out in a mess.

The eyeliner pen is really easy to apply, and looks like the normal liquid eyeliner. But you can’t make a thin line or a wing with all eyeliner pens, because some of them are too thick for that. And I don’t recommend buying a cheap one, because they turn grey after a few weeks. I like the one from Maybelline, you have to pay a bit more, but you can use it for so much longer.

Lancome has a eyeliner pen called the artliner. It is uniquely shaped, and I heard a lot of good things about it. I haven’t tried it out myself yet, so I wonder if it really is that special, and not just the same as the other eyeliner pens.


The gel eyeliner is really easy to apply, because you apply it with an angled brush. Gel eyeliner is mostly more intense and darker, and it’s easy to tightline with it. But because of the brush, I always have problems with making a thin line. And gel eyeliner runs out quite fast, so you shouldn’t use it on hot days. But I think this is the best eyeliner to start with.

It’s also fun to play with colored eyeliners, they can really brighten up your look.
