All the Books I've Read in 2015

Happy New Year to all you beautiful people!

Here there's only about 3 hours of 2015 left and I wanted to reflect a bit and share with you all the books I've read this year. It's been amazing and I enjoyed so many of these books. What has been your favorite? I hope you like this video!

Soundtrack of my Life: 2015

Hey guys,

The last two years I really enjoyed doing these posts and I hope you like them as well. I will post a song for every month, a song that inspired me, represents my feeling and that I didn't get out of my head.

To-Go Makeup: Midnight Glitz (New Years Eve)

Hey guys,

New Years Eve is almost here and I wanted to show you a very classic and sparkly version of a party look. This is inspired by the sparkles and colors of fireworks and the glam of the Roaring 20s. I think it’s super pretty and fun. It’s definitely something I’d be wearing to such a fancy party - but as always I’ll be staying at home with my cat. We’re both terrified. :D
So what are your plans? Will you rock all your favorite glitter?

To-Go Makeup: Midnight Teal (New Year's Eve)

Hey guys,

It’s time to add all the sparkle to our lives. It’s almost New Year’s Eve which means fancy parties, fancy dresses and fancy drinks. So I wanna get you in the celebrating mood with this makeup look. I love teal eyeshadow and a lot of glitter. That’s what I wanted to capture with the look. Also I like it dark and smoky. This look has the best of both worlds now. Hope you like it as much as I do!

To-Go Makeup: Blue Christmas Holiday Look

Hey guys,

For this blue holiday look I mainly used my Tarte Jewelry Box palette. I really like it and wanna use it more often. It has 32 eyeshadows so you can create pretty much anything with it. Here you’ll see my favorite technique as of late, with the light browbone color and the tan blending shade. :) I just really like that routine right now. Also blue glitter liner is a must this season!

Luhrmann Looks: Juliet Capulet (Romeo + Juliet)

Hey guys,

This look is inspired by Juliet in Romeo +Juliet. She’s super innocent and wears very natural and neutral makeup. Everything is chosen to enhance her youth and her features. I kinda like this type of makeup for everyday. On the other hand it might be a bit boring in a video. Claire Danes is gorgeous in this movie... What do you think?

To-Go Makeup: Silver Bells Holiday Look

Hey guys,

I don’t do too many Christmas looks but I am really loving this one right now. I get so overly excited when it’s ok to wear a lot of glitter on the eyes. So some glitter liner is my best friend in December. You will definitely see that in this look, but it so freaking pretty. I wore this to a Christmas party and felt super festive. What’s your favorite thing about Holiday makeup?

Luhrmann Looks: Myrtle Wilson (Great Gatsby)

Hey guys,

Today’s look is inspired by Myrtle Wilson in the Great Gatsby movie by Baz Luhrmann. She is my least favorite female character in the movie but her makeup is pretty amazing and very unique. I think it has a very different vibe since her role in the movie is completely opposite to the other two women.The Great Gatsby might be my favorite movie of Luhrmann and I can’t wait to rewatch it when wrapping all the Christmas gifts. That’s one of my Christmas traditions. :D

To-Go Makeup: Makeup Factory Winter Look

Hey guys,

I loved the picture of the Makeup Factory winter collection. The eyes are dark and smoky but with a pop of color. I always like different and fun looks. So this is great for a night out or a party. You can use pretty much any color but I used pink since that is what’s in the picture. I hope this inspired you to incorporate fun colors in your looks.

Luhrmann Looks: Lady Capulet (Romeo + Juliet)

Hey guys,

I love this look and I hope you feel the same way. This was so much fun to do. I love going all out and creating something different and yet chic. I was inspired by Lady Capulet in the movie Romeo + Juliet. She’s so fab, especially with the wig cap. :D But I don’t know what it is, I had to this. I am soooo happy with it.

Dressday #58

Hey guys,

a couple of weeks ago I had a job interview. I've shown you the GRWM already. But it was also a Dressday because I wore this outfit and I wanted to share it in a bit more detail. As I said, this was a while ago but I never got around to put it on the blog. But well, here we go.

November Reading Wrap-up

Hey guys,

Today I am back with a couple of books I've read recently. Unfortunately they weren't amazing but they were good fun. I guess you could totally read them and think they're great. For me they were ok and entertaining. I still hope for something better. :D

GRWM: Job Interview #5

Hey guys,

Again I went to a couple of job interviews and recorded my makeup and outfits. This is a bit darker again because it’s fall and so I feel like darker shades are more appropriate. Hope you enjoy this look. I really like the outfits. What do you think?

To-Go Makeup: Urban Decay Naked Smoky Look + My Opinion

Hey guys,

I told you I won the Urban Decay (UD) Naked Smoky palette. I was really excited because I have never tried a Naked palette before. It’s honestly nothing I would have ever bought myself. I am more for the fun exciting colorful palettes. Still I was so so so excited to try out this new palette and play with some of the shades.

I am the biggest winner!

Hey guys,

yes, I am the biggest winner. Within a short period of time I won two amazing give-aways. First there was a cute package by my fellow German blogger Connü. She sent me some real nice stuff before. This time she got me a beautiful lipstick and a great eyeshadow. She didn't like the colors but I love them.

Luhrmann Looks: Fran (Strictly Ballroom)

Hey guys,

We are slowly but surely proceeding in the Luhrmann Looks series and I still love it a lot. Today’s look is inspired by Fran (Tara Morice) in Strictly Ballroom. Other than Liz and the other women in this movie, Fran’s look is very simple and natural. In the final dance scene she has a bit of red lipstick on but throughout the movie she’s supposed to stand out with her personality and not her looks. I really liked that. So here we go. :D

Dessday #57

Hey guys,

yes, I have another Dressday post. So proud. And I honetly love this outfit to pieces. The dress is definitiely one of my alltime favorite clothing items. I love the shape it gives. Also I never thought that brown would look good on me but I acually love it. But the cut is just what is so special about this dress. Finally it's just super soft and cozy. What else could you possibly want?

Questions Nobody Asks TAG

Hey guys,

Today I wanna share with you a little TAG video. I love to do these every once in a while and I always feel honored if my lovely friends think of me and tag me. :) So this time I was tagged by Mika which is one of my oldest Youtube friends. She wanted me to do this very random but fun tag. Hope you enjoy it!

GRWM: Job Interview #4

Hey guys,

Another job interview and I wanted to get ready with you all. It helps me so much to be able to share this with you. I decided to go a bit heavier on the eyes because it is fall now and I guess it’s appropriate. With my hooded eyes it still doesn’t look too dramatic and I felt very confident. I used mainly the Sleek Sunset palette for the eyes. It’s such a great palette for autumn. :)

Luhrmann Looks: Satine (Moulin Rouge)

Hey guys,

Today’s look is inspired by the beautiful Nicole Kidman again. She plays not only the lead role in Australia but also in Moulin Rouge, which is one of the first romantic movies I ever watched and enjoyed. Her part is so versatile and fun, her voice is amazing, I love her. So her look is something I love to wear because it’s simple but impressive - especially for hooded eyes. So what do you think?

Dressday #56

Hey guys,

Another week, another dressday. Kind of. :D Well, you know. Let's get started. I don't even remember where we went but I wore this outfit for some kind of party or occasion. The dress I got from my lovely American friend Cassie. She absolutely knows my style. I love the black and white detail.

Creepy October Reads

Hey guys,

Today I wanna show you the books I read for my #Scaralong. In October I decided to read some Horror classics and creepy books. I really enjoyed reading with friends. I read Frankenstein with my friend Caro and it was so much fun. I hope we can do something similar again next year.

To-Go Makeup: Chanel Blue Rhythm Look

Hey guys,

Today’s look is inspired by the Chanel Blue Rhythm campaign. They have different pictures, but this one absolutely blew me away. I knew I had to film this video asap. And so I did. I am really happy with the result. It’s unique and special and still wearable. What do you think, would you ever wear that? I actually went grocery shopping like that and surprisingly no one was staring at me. :D

Luhrmann Looks: Jordan Baker (The Great Gatsby)

Hey guys,

This look is inspired by Jordan Baker who is portrayed by the beautiful Elizabeth Debicki in The Great Gatsby. I love the movie, I love her amazing round eyes and her fabulous hair cut. So here we go. This look is inspired by her party look and the ad visuals for the film. I really like how it came out. It definitely has that modern 20s vibe again. My eyes aren’t made for the 20s eyeshadow shape. Still I enjoyed trying this for you.

Dressday #55: Halloween 2015

Hey guys,

Today I wanted to share with you my Halloween costume. I decided to do a doll this year. I am not happy with the makeup, I have to be honest. I had a migrane that day, so here's the excuse. Also this was quite spontaneous and we were out the whole day. Aaaaand I put a cat hair in my eye with the first contact lense, which pretty much killed my eyes... Yeah, dumb excuses. Just wasn't feeling it that day.

October Outfits & Halloween Sneak Peek

To-Go Makeup: Vintage Vamp (Charlotte Tilbury)

Hey guys,

Red eyeshadow can be a bitch to pull off, but in this video and with this look I wanna show you easy steps how to make red wearable on your eyes. This is loosely inspired by the visual of the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp collection. I think the picture is just gorgeous and I wanted to try something similar for you. I think it’s totally wearable, especially with hooded eyes.

Luhrmann Looks: Lady Sarah Ashley (Australia)

Hey guys,

Today I wanna share with you a look inspired by the beautiful Nicole Kidman. She is one of my favorite actresses because she is in a lot of my favorite movies, now including Australia. I didn’t expect to love this movie so much, but it seriously touched and broke my heart all at once. I would really recommend it.

Nicole Kidman as Lady Ashley is a rich girl from England looking for her husband in Australia. As soon as she arrives he dies after an attack. Now it’s up to her to sell or maintain the farm. So her look changes dramatically from the pale and sophisticated British woman to the do-it-yourself farm owner. I took inspiration mainly from the ball scene half way through the movie. She’s rocking the no-makeup-makeup look and I love it.

Dressday #54

Hey guys,

These pictures have been waiting on my laptop for about 3 weeks now. We went to a party when the semester began. For that I wore my favorite black dress at the moment which I got from Boohoo. With that I wore black tights that weren't too think since it was cold but during the party it always gets super hot. We had a lovely evening.

Creepy Reads - October Book Haul

Hey guys,

Today I wanna show you a few books I got to read in October. This was recorded quite a while ago but I just had too much stuff to upload. That's why it's kinda late and I have read most of these books already. I think in 2 weeks you will see my wrap-up about these. :D Hope you enjoy seeing the Haul anyways! <3 span="">

GRWM: Welcome Home

Hey guys,

This is just a quick GRWM video. I wanted to put on some makeup when I picked up my boyfriend from the train station. He was gone for over two weeks. I am very happy to have him back. :D Two weeks are definitely too long for my taste. Hope you like the look, it’s nothing special.

Luhrmann Looks: Liz Holt (Strictly Ballroom)

Hey guys,

You might use this look for Halloween. Otherwise this is not the most wearable look you’ll see in this series. But it’s fun, and I love fun stuff. Also I think it looks kinda good, maybe not the blush and lips, but the eye makeup is definitely pretty. I would wear that… occasionally. So let me know what you think.

Liz is definitely the crazy girl in the movie. Her makeup changes a lot but always fits her personality very well. Also we’re talking about stage makeup for the most part, which is usually very dramatic and over the top.
