Hi, my name is Dorit and I hate minimalism and this whole declutter trend. I like buying stuff. I like owning stuff. I like having options. (Have a look at my pantry and you’ll see what I mean.) When it comes to makeup, I have way more than I can ever use up. Luckily, I also have a Room of My Own (read it at some point in your life, it’ll be worth it) and can store it easily. Luckily, too, my SO does support me and isn’t that kind of infuriating male that goes “why do you own that much makeup?!”. Nevertheless, once a year I like to go through my whole collection. Read on to see why, how and my decluttering tips for people who hate decluttering.
It’s the story of my life that I’m inevitably drawn to pretty powders (even more so if they’re embossed or come in a pretty compact), while at the same time I’m the most boring highlighter user ever. I also prefer my highlighters to be on the subtle side. If I don’t consciously remind myself that I own approximately twenty, I’d wear MAC’s Lightscapade day in, day out. So why did I ever think that Becca Opal and MAC’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double-Gleam would ever be for me?!READ MORE
Every year, Pantone comes out with their Color of the Year. We’ve covered quite a few years already – Marsala, here, and Rose Quartz and Serenity here. This year’s Greenery is quite a challenge for makeup enthusiasts – how am I to wear a spring-y yellow green? Might you ask. And also, Color of the Year. Why should I even care? Short answer: Because Pantone subtly influences your shopping behaviour. Go ahead, scoff and laugh – I’ll prove it to you after the cut! (Also, pretty makeup.)READ MORE
No matter if you get regular manis at a salon of your choice or paint your nails yourself on a regular basis, at Halloween you may want to spruce up your regular nude or red. You don’t need to be a nail artist to do that! Here’re three easy Halloween nail art tutorials anyone can do – promise! Plus, you’ll have the supplies for each one already at home!READ MORE
I tend to wear mineral makeup with SPF when it gets hot. I’ve combination skin that gets shiny very quickly in the heat. Generally, while liquid foundations break down really quickly in those conditions, mineral foundation doesn’t for me. If you’ve got dry skin, though, that might be different. But I found the perfect beauty hack for a super quick and easy application that’s great for all skin types.READ MORE
Are you as obsessed with beauty hacks as I am? I industriously read every post on them but the thing is – I never ever use them. Maybe I’m just lazy or clinging to my old ways, but some of those so-called hacks just seem so impractical, time-consuming and (dare I say it) unnessecary! There’s one, though, that I use quite often. It’s the only beauty hack you’ll truly ever need – and you will use it! Here’s my trusted hack how to get rid of makeup stains quickly and easily.READ MORE
It’s that time of the month again! This time I found out that Germans use makeup only because they’re insecure, how to do an easy topknot, and how I pair my new statement glasses with the right eye makeup. But there’s more, of course! Japanese beauty products, interesting bits and bobs about travelling, and some DIY!READ MORE
This is a preview of the collaboration photoshoot where Maggie of Clubelle (find our interview with Maggie here!) and I did our best to copy the high-end spring campaign beauty look (will be posted next week!). I’m posting my tutorial for the Giorgio Armani Spring 2016. It was one of the looks we did on the photoshoot, one of the simple yet very wearable to wear in all seasons, and I would totally recommend this for you to try out!
As much as I love the brand, I actually did not get anything from Giorgio Armani specifically for this tutorial. Hey, we are on a budget from time to time. And I wanted to show you how you might be able to find something of this color in your stash! (PS: if you want to get something, I would recommend to try out the lipsticks. These colors are just super flattering.)
