Makeup To-Go: Mandy Moore (Emmys 2017)

Hey guys,

I am a huge fan of pink lips. This color is just my favorite, the brighter the better. So seeing this gorgeous beautiful woman with pink lips on a red carpet just intrigued me. I had to try this look and show you what I came up with. Her eyes are so pretty and glittery.

Literary Looks: Hilly in The Help

Hey guys,

The Help is one of my absolute favorite books on earth. It’s so interesting, has amazing characters and I cared for all of them so much. This is actually a book I have to reread soon, maybe next year. But today I wanted to show you a look inspired by Hilly. She is the mean girl of the book, but it’s hard to hate her because you kinda feel sorry for her and her ignorance as well.

August Lookbook - Vacation Edition

Hey guys,

So August was my vacation month and maybe you've already seen the first part of my vlog all about Rome. There will be a second part hopefully soon, all about Naples, Pompeii and other fun places. So this video is pretty much full of my vacation outfits. I recorded them when I was back home just because our holiday was quite busy, we were going to so many sights and having such a great time that I couldn't be bothered with filming outfits. Sry guys, I know that makes it a bit more boring. Hope you enjoy nonetheless!

Makeup To-Go: Donna Paulsen in Suits

Hey guys,

Fall makeup looks always bring me back to warm shimmers and darker crease colors. This I heart Makeup palette is really great for that. It’s called Naked Chocolate palette, I believe, and it has all these amazing fall colors that you’ll need. I got mine in Fuerteventura last year and I have been using this constantly. Today I wanna share with you this glowing warm-toned look inspired by my favorite Suits character Donna Paulsen.

Literary Looks: Galadriel

Hey guys,

Galadriel is one of those characters that has a lot of power but is very settle about it. You won’t find her boasting about it. She’ll just calmly let you know that she is a powerful elf and she knows pretty much everything that was, is or maybe will be. I wanted to do a very light glowing look for her. She is a very fair person with blond her. What do you think?

Makeup To-Go: Jennifer Lawrence in Mother!

Hey guys,

One of my most anticipated movies of this year is Mother! with Jennifer Lawrence. The trailer looked fantastic and like a great mystery. It didn’t show too much of the story but just the atmosphere which is super creepy and disturbing. So I decided to take inspiration from JLaw’s look in one of the promo pictures for the movie. I don’t know how accurate it is for what she’s wearing in the film… we’ll see. :D

Literary Looks: Temperance Brennan

Hey guys,

Bones is one of my favorite TV shows even though it wore itself out a bit and I actually never finished it. But the book series has become a favorite of mine as well, and I’ve read the second book recently. This inspired me to do a look that would be appropriate for a more mature person, someone who works a lot and doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror before heading out. I think this is a great everyday look for fall!

Makeup To-Go: Pink at the VMAs 2017

Hey guys,

Pink had this amazing speech at this year’s VMAs which went pretty much viral on social media. The talk was all about her daughter who thought she was ugly because she looked too manly. I love that these things are talked about now, because with short hair I actually look a lot like a boy, too. :D This is nothing weird or ugly, it’s just how life works.

Rome Travel Vlog 2017

Hey guys,

this is the first part of vlogs of our summer vacation. I love Rome, it's my favorite city in the whole world. I love Roman history and I studied Latin in school. So I am pretty biased. But you should watch this. You'll love it, too. The Naples vlog will follow soon!

Literary Looks: Sansa Stark

Hey guys,

Today’s look is inspired by beautiful Sansa who has a good heart but not much luck in the series A Song of Ice and Fire. I really like her character growth but when we first meet her she’s actually a snobby little princess of the North. So that’s what I wanted to capture with this look. The eyes are inspired by snow, the cheeks are blushed as if from the cold. The lips are also really cold-looking.

Kat von D & Illamasqua Makeup Haul

Hey guys,

So I don't do a lot of makeup shopping anymore. My main weakness are lipsticks and I have so freaking many that I really try to stop myself from buying more. Well, that doesn't always work... which is why you should watch this video. ;)

Makeup To-Go: Wedding Guest 2017

Hey guys,

Well, weddings are a thing and seems like we’re invited to one or two every year. So here you go, another wedding guest makeup tutorial. I really do love this look a lot because it is nice and smoky and it doesn’t matter if your makeup starts to slide a little bit. Also it’s not too dark but still defined enough. I liked adding a touch of yellow and the pink lips to match my makeup to my dress.

Literary Looks: Jane Eyre

Hey guys,

Last year I was blown away by the novel Jane Eyre. I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did, and I had no idea what it was about. That was just the best way to enjoy it. Jane is such a strong character in a way and she wants to decide for herself. Also she went through some rough shit. All in all for me this kinda tired look with the strong brows and the flushed cheeks would really match her well.

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.
