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. :)

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.

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
