June & July Lookbook

Hey guys,

here are some summer outfits for you. There'll be some more soon. I know we're going into autumn but maybe this is still interesting for you. I love summer and light-weight clothing. I love it when I don't have to wear coats and hats. So yeah, this is my favorite time to dress. :D

My Morning Routine

Hey guys,

Lately I've been in the mood to try something different and make some new content. So I decided to show you my morning routine. This is what I do everyday before work. I get up 90 minutes before I head out. That's just what works for me. Then I ride to work with my bike, that's around 20 minutes for 4 kilometres. For me it's important to start the day with the things I love most: food, some Yoga and beauty stuff. :)

Makeup To-Go: Vampire Mom (inspired by Happy Family)

Hey guys,

Today’s look inspired by a German animated movie called Happy Family. In this movie the family is actually transformed into their Halloween costumes. So the mom ends up being a vampire and even Dracula is interested in her. The trailer looked quite cute and I wanted to do some makeup to transition into fall. :D

GRWM: Real Talk - Will I stop blogging?

Hey guys,

This is a Real Talk video. I wanna share my current thoughts on Youtube and on my blogging and stuff. I have never had a large audience and I never really bothered but lately it seems like I am pretty much alone. I do have some old Youtube friends but most of them quit Youtube a while back and now all the comments are basically about Sub4Sub and I hate it. What do you think? Has this happened to you as well?

Lisbon Vlog 2017

Hey guys,

In July I went to Lisbon for work and since life is not all work I decided to vlog it. It's nothing special but you'll get some insight and some impressions of Lisbon. I didn't have time for real sightseeing but the city is very interesting and has very different styles all combined. I think it's worth your time.

Literary Looks: Nina Zenik (Grishaverse)

Hey guys,

One of the most fierce and fun female characters I’ve read about it Nina Zenik in the Grisha books. She stars in Six of Crows as well as Crooked Kingdom and I absolutely loved her. She goes through some rough shit for her friends and basically saves everyone all the time. As a heartrender she is a strong warrior but she did her fair share of mistakes and had to work part-time as a prostitute of sorts. Red is the color of her robe.

Purple & Bronze Chanel Look - Makeup To-Go

Hey guys,

These looks are so great for summer: just a nice bronze eyeshadow over the lid and a fun bright color through the lashes. In this video I am showing you a version with some purple liner and red lips inspired by an older Chanel visual. I think it’s super summer appropriate even though summer is coming to an end, sadly…

Literary Looks: Arwen Undomiel

Hey guys,

I loved reading and watching The Lord of the Rings when I was younger and I still have so many nostalgic feelings for these books. I even reread the first book this year and I saw the last movie in Concert which was amazing. Apart from all that I always adored the Elves the most and Arwen is obviously on the more relatable side. While I am not sure how I feel about the movie character I loved her in the books. So here’s a look inspired by an eternally youthful and beautiful creature. :D

Makeup To-Go: Urban Decay Afterglow Inspired Look

Hey guys,

For summer look inspiration I went onto some makeup brand websides and found this look from Urban Decay. I am a very pale type but I like to pretend sometimes and so I decided to try this bronzed goddess kinda look on myself. Here’s how it went. I love the eyes and I think in the end will all those different bronzers on my face it actually looked quite nice. Nothing I’d wear every day, though.

Lahaye Oval Brush Review

Hey guys,

When it comes to brushes it is very difficult to get me excited. Even though I definitely need some new brushes I just never get around to buying some. But when I saw all these oval brushes in reviews and videos I got really intrigued and I wanted to see for myself what all the fuzz was about. So in out local drugstore called DM I got this Lahaye oval brush for quite cheap and decided to record a review for you all. :)

Literary Looks: Shahrzad

Hey guys,

Today we’re going to start a new series and it’s going to be all about interesting and strong female characters from books. After the series about female super heroes, I wasn’t quite done. :D So we’re going to start off with Shahrzad or Sheherazad or however you wanna call her. I’ve read The Wrath and the Dawn this year and I am also currently reading the originals tale of 1001 nights. Shahrzad is the woman who came up with these tales to stop her husband from killing his brides. By telling him a story with a cliffhanger every night she slowly earns his trust and makes him fall in love with her.

Shahrzad is a desert queen so I wanted this look to be bronzy and warm and pretty but also dramatic. The eyes are the main focus and are slightly Arab inspired but very easy to do. I hope you like this!

Makeup To-Go: Baywatch inspired Look

Hey guys,

Since there was a new Baywatch movie coming out (which no one wanted to see in cinemas with me :D) I decided to take inspiration from this iconic TV show and create a beach babe look. This is not my normal makeup style but sometimes it’s just fun to play around with products. I especially like the glossy plump lips and the bronzed glowing cheekbones. I mainly used my beloved Ofra Window palette for this look.

Makeup is my Super Power: Catwoman

Hey guys,

Catwoman has always been my favorite female super hero. She’s so fierce and sexy and she has cat in the name. Also she kind of is in love with Batman which is bonus points. So let’s finish this series of with the classic black cat eye and the sexy red lips, a bit of sophisticated contouring and a warm blush on the cheeks.

Blankenhain Castle Vlog - The German Downton Abbey

Hey guys,

a couple of weeks ago I decided to have a great day with my boyfriend and we headed out to visit this castle. Little fun fact, my greatgrandfather or greatgreatgrandfather actually worked there as a gardener. Well, that time has passed but some parts of this castle remained pretty much the same and it was really interesting to see.

Makeup To-Go: Mia Wallace (in Pulp Fiction)

Hey guys,

Walking home through a park a couple of weeks ago, some guy called after me whether I know the movie Pulp Fiction. I quickly hurried on because I hate being compared to celebrities because of my hair. I then checked whether I’d ever done the Mia Wallace look and was surprised to find that I haven’t… well, here we go!

Makeup To-Go: Beginner's Summer Look

Hey guys,

After doing the Opposite Hand Makeup Challenge I wanted to give you something to compare it to. This is the same look using the same products, brushes and techniques but my “normal” hand. I really hope you like it. It’s great for summer, great for beginners but really just an easy, quick look that suits pretty much everyone. It’s also great for hooded lids. :)

May Lookbook

Hey guys,

Summer is moving right along and here are the outfits I wore in the beginning of summer. :D I hope you enjoy these even though it's been a while. It has been really hot here, which is something I like. Still there are a lot of rainy days recently as well. How's your summer so far?

Opposite Hand Makeup Challenge!

Hey guys,

Who thought that doing your makeup with the "wrong" hand would be a good idea? :D I was actually pretty terrified when I filmed this. The eyeliner was the worst. xD So I hope this is somewhat entertaining. The actual look I was going for will be uploaded quite soon for comparison!

Makeup is my Super Power: Black Widow

Hey guys,

Probably not what comes to mind when you think of summer and beaches but today I wanted to share with you my Black Widow inspired looks. This is the second to last look in the Comic Heroine series and I am very excited. Her look is very much inspired by an actual picture of the comic version of Black Widow. She has those feline eyes with a bit of a smudgy edge to them, the lips are brownish nude and there’s definitely some highlighter involved.

Makeup To-Go: Atomic Blonde look

Hey guys,

Another movie I am more than excited about is Atomic Blonde which is with Charlize Theron and made by the guy who also did John Wick and I love myself some good action movies. I think that the main character in this movie will kick ass, she also has some sexy scenes with a French spy, if I am correct, and it looks just overall like good fun. In the trailer she wears these fantastic sexy cat eyes and I wanted to try to recreate the look.

Makeup is my Super Power: Hela (in Thor)

Hey guys,

We get a new Thor movie this year and with that a female villain which is very exciting. In Marvel movies there has been a lack of female leads so far and I’d be happy to see that change. Cate Blanchet is one of the most gorgeous woman on this planet and for me she’ll always be Galadriel. To see her as this fantastic villain with black smoky cat eyes in Thor is super exciting and different. So I had to recreate the look!

Makeup To-Go: Diane Kruger (Met Gala 2017)

Hey guys,

Diane Kruger looked fabulous for the Met Gala this year. Her look was very simple and classy with just a few highlights. The lids are nice and light, the crease slightly defined and the lashes are nice and dark with a hint of an eyeliner. The lips are a very light pink which I rarely do but love. It’s all very neutral and wearable. Great for summer, in my opinion!

Makeup is my Super Power: Gamora

Hey guys,

I love Guardians of the Galaxy so much and when we decided to go see Vol.2 in cinemas, I had to do a Gamora inspired look. She’s just so fierce and beautiful, I love her portrayal in the movies. Also I really like the love story between her and Starlord, they’re just so different but so cute together. So yeah, I did a smoky eye with green edges and paired it with fierce metallic green lips. I love this look to pieces. What do you think?

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette - Review

Hey guys,

I've bought this brush cleansing palette by Real Techniques a couple of months ago. I am really bad with cleansing my brushes and I am looking for ways to make it easier and nicer. But I also don't like really clean brushes... any recommendations?

Makeup To-Go: Emma Watson (MTV Awards 2017)

Hey guys,

Emma Watson on a red carpet is always exciting for me. She’s one of the most beautiful people in my opinion, inside and out. So this look immediately caught my eye. She wore this for the MTV Movie Awards this year. The eyes are nice and defined and her liner has quite a peculiar shape that is very flattering. The rest of the face is neutral but gorgeous.
