    To-Go Makeup: Mia (in Love Actually)



    Hey guys,

    Today I wanted to share with you a late Christmas look for hooded eyes. If you want you can easily wear that for New Year’s Eve as well. :D So I guess it’s still fine to do this post.
    This is inspired by Mia in Love Actually which is probably my alltime favorite Christmas movie. I tried to do this look every year but I finally succeeded. I just added glitter because I thought it was more fun. It's still beautiful without. :D I hope you enjoy watching even though it’s a bit late!

    To-Go Makeup: Martha May (from The Grinch Movie)



    Hey guys,

    Oh dear, I love this look. I think this is such a gorgeous gorgeous makeup for any Christmas party. It’s very glamorous and festive and definitely the right thing for any girl that loves makeup. This look is inspired by the fabulous Martha May and I will link you a picture here. The Grinch or How the Grinch stole Christmas is just such a classic movie that I love to rewatch every year but I never did her makeup look. Stupid me. :D So enjoy watching!

    To-Go Makeup: Effie Trinkett (Mockingjay Part 1)



    Hey guys,

    Today we’re going to do something crazy and futuristic inspired by Effie Trinkett in the Mockingjay Part 1 movie. She has to live without all her fancy dresses and wigs now but she is still Effie and she found her way to glam up District 13. I love this look they gave her. Her makeup looks a bit worn-off as if she had a basic makeup tattooed onto her face and that’s what I tried to recreate. Here’s an inspiration picture.

    Goddess Makeup: Aphrodite



    Hey guys,

    This is the end of the Goddess Makeup series and I am so sad because I really enjoyed it. Did you like it, too? It just reminded me of the fantastic vacation that I had with my boyfriend and I am sooo excited to travel again maybe next year…

    For this last look it is inspired by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty which is said to be born by the sea. That’s why I decided for teal eyes and red lips. Her symbols are roses and poppies. This is a very unusual combination but surprisingly pretty.

    To-Go Makeup: Snow Day Eyes + Top 5 Winter Lip Looks



    Hey guys,

    It’s officially cold and nasty outside, so to brighten my day I’ve been getting into wearing lipstick more again. I love putting on nice colors and feeling the products on my lips. I don’t know why but lipstick has always been my favorite kind of makeup products. Also I have been wearing lip liners a lot more. So I wanted to show you my everyday makeup with my top 5 lip looks at the moment!

    Goddess Makeup: Persephone



    Hey guys,

    This is the second to last Goddess inspired look. Any recommendations what I could do next year? Today we’re going to talk about Persephone. She’s the wife of Hades and lives with him for a part of the year. Her mother Demeter is in great grief because of that and stops the plants from growing and the world from living. We call this time of year Winter. So this is a very fitting makeup right now. :D I wanted to incorporate the colors of Demeter, mainly browns and golds and some green, and just create a darker look with it. Hope you enjoy watching!

    Goddess Makeup: Demeter



    Hey guys,

    Today I wanna share with you a look inspired by the Goddess Demeter. She’s the Goddess of harvest, fertility and grains. She is the Mother of Persephone which will be next week’s look. I wanted to give her a rather natural and wearable makeup and I think I did pretty well. One of her symbols is poppy so I gave her look the red lip. Hope you enjoy. I think you can very well wear this out. :)

    Falling for Autumn TAG



    Hey guys,

    Today I wanna share with you an exciting video because my friend Jessi came up with her own TAG. So obviously I had to do it ASAP. I hope you enjoy watching this, definitely check out Jessi's channel and maybe even do this TAG yourself and share it with us!

    To-Go Makeup: Arabesque Tango Tango Look



    Hey guys,

    This look is inspired by this gorgeous makeupcommercial by Arabesque. I think they did a great job with the makeup and since this is usually not my cup of tea I wanted to give it my own twist. I think it is such a nice festive and clean makeup and will suit pretty much anybody. Enjoy watching!

    Goddess Makeup: Eris



    Hey guys,

    Today we wanna do the look of Eris. She is the Goddess of Discordia. She also threw the Apple of Discordia into a group of Goddesses which then started the Trojan War. She is often shown as an old woman who only shows her real self when there are arguments. So this makeup is not really pretty. I tried to use apple-ish colors, so greens and reds. Also the red blush represents the heat of the fight. The deepened crease will make you look older and more grim.

    GAT ytuaeB sdrawkcaB



    Hey guys,

    I finally got all my courage together and created my own tag: The Backwards Beauty TAG! It would mean the world to me if you enjoy it and let me know or maybe even do the Tag yourself and send me the link. I think it's quite funny. I hope you enjoy watching.

    To-Go Makeup: Purple Nighttime Lip Collab with MissJessibel



    Hey guys,

    Another Collab video. :D My friend Jessi showed this cool purple lip color in an unboxing video and so I asked her whether she would be interested in doing a collab with me. We decided that she would do a daytime look and I would do something a bit more fierce and dramatic for a night out. I really love both our looks and I hope you enjoy watching them as well!

    Goddess Makeup: Hestia



    Hey guys,

    Today’s look is very simple and easy. Hestia or Vesta, the Goddess who inspired it, is the goddess of the fire of the stove and the family. All the priests had to be Virgin girls. The most famous of these priests is Rhea Silvia who was made a priest by her uncle. He killed her father, the King of Alba Longa, and all her brothers so he himself can be king. As a priest of Vesta she wasn’t allowed to have children. But then the God Mars came and gave her twins, Romulus and Remus. Just so you know. ;) The bible did not invent the whole virgin mother concept…

    The look inspired by Hestia is supposed to be soft but still represent the colors of fire. I think this is great for fall time and I hope you enjoy watching.

    To-Go Makeup: Xena (Lucy Lawless)



    Hey guys,

    Today we’re going back to the 90s. This seems to be quite a big thing in Autumn this year. I first thought something in the lines of “Nooooooooo!” but then I started to really like the style of makeup. It’s very warm toned, very contoured and just beautiful. So I remembered this one show that I watched when I was little: Xena. And yes, that’s what we’re doing today. You may think I am crazy, and it does look a bit weird, but I had fun trying something a bit different. Here’s the inspiration picture.

    To-Go Makeup: Babor Autumn 2014 Collab with Sandra Carolina



    Hey guys,

    This look today is really exciting for me since I am doing a Collab with the beautiful Sandra Caroline on Youtube. I found the Babor Autumn pictures and the model looked exactly like Sandra Carolina, I think. So we decided to do this. On her channel you will find the nighttime look and I recreated the daytime look. I will link her video down below! So I hope you enjoy this very settle and soft Autumn look. Obviously you can add more drama with some darker lips. :)

    To-Go Makeup: Sarah Jessica Parker (Met Ball 2014)



    Hey guys,

    This look is inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker. She wore this dark smoky eye on the Red Carpet for the Met Ball 2014. I think she looked really glamorous and beautiful. You can see the picture here. I instantly got inspired to recreate it, because I thought it would be flattering with my eyeshape. What do you think?

    Goddess Makeup: Nyx + My Halloween 2014



    Hey guys,

    This look is inspired by the Greek goddess Nyx, goddess of the night. I wore this as my Halloween costume so it is way more dramatic than the other looks. I still think it is a gorgeous look and I hope you like it. Her symbol is the Moon so that’s why it has a bit of a Sailor Moon touch. :D I really loved it, especially because of the eyelashes. I hope it’s ok for my friends that I share a few other pictures as well from our little Halloween movie night. :D

    To-Go Makeup: Duocolored Cat Eye



    Hey guys,

    Today’s look is inspired by an ad that I saw at my hair dresser’s. I don’t actually know which brand it was but I always thought the makeup is stunning. It gives you the biggest eyes in the world. I also liked the idea of the blue bottom liner which is quite edgy and unique. I really haven’t seen too many similar looks and I absolutely love it. I hope you enjoy watching as well.

    Halloween Makeup: Nancy Callahan (Sin City 2)



    Hey guys,

    Today is the day: My one and only Halloween tutorial for this year. Yes, I know. I am really sorry but it just didn’t work out. I don’t have the time to invest into filming right now. I am pretty sure you all got inspired by tons of other Halloween videos and tutorials though. I decided to recreate a look that I haven’t seen on Youtube yet. It is inspired by Jessica Alba’s latest movie Sin City 2. I loved her character a lot and I thought this would be a great idea. Here you can see the original look. Enjoy watching!

    Goddess Makeup: Artemis



    Hey guys,

    This may not be my favorite look of this series, but there’s always something that doesn’t work out perfectly. I guess this is still a pretty look. Let me know what you think about it. This is inspired by Artemis, Goddess of Hunt and Forests. Her symbol is the golden arrow. So I mainly used golden and green colors for the eyes and a very strict and clear makeup on the rest of the face.

    Outfits of September

    Hangover Makeup



    Hey guys,

    We all know these days when you've been out to long, maybe had a drink to much and the next morning you have to get out of bed and be productive. So this makeup will help to make you look less like a scarecrow and much more like yourself. The best part about this: You only need 5 steps and maybe 5 minutes. (If you are anything like me it might take longer because you are so tired and cannot move too fast. ;))

    Goddess Makeup: Iris



    Hey guys,

    Today I wanna show you a makeup look inspired by Iris. She is the Goddess of the Rainbow, pretty much, and a messenger for Hera. Obviously this look had to be fun and bright. I hope you enjoy this even though it is probably not the most wearable of them all. I still like it. As always I wish blue lips would be a normal thing, I think it looks quite fancy. :D
