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.

If you know me, you know my obsession with candles. I really hope you enjoy these kinda videos, because I love filming them a lot! So yeah, if you like candles, enjoy this crazy ride. :D

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!

Hey guys,

Reading is a huge part of my life and I also love movies and TV shows. That's why every month I love to share the things I've read and watched recently. This month was quite good for that and I am excited to share. If you like any of these things as well, let me know in the comments!

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.

Makeup is my Super Power: Huntress

Hey guys,

Still catching up with the Super Heroine looks. Today I wanted to do Huntress who’s the daughter of Catwoman and Batman which is basically my dream. Her colors are purple and pink and she has quite a dark look, obviously. I really like that color palette and I wanted to create an eye look inspired by that. I am very happy with the result.

Used up! May 2017

Hey guys,

here are some more products I've used up recently. As always there's beauty, maybe some makeup and candle and home scents. These are pretty much the best things in life for me. :D Hope you like the video. :)

Makeup To-Go: Millie Bobby Brown (MTV Movie Awards 2017)

Great for blue & green eyes!

Hey guys,

Millie Bobby Brown held the sweetest speech at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. I loved Stranger Things a lot. Also this look is really great for summer since it is easy to do and pretty smudge-proof. It’s further great for younger girls who are starting to wear makeup because it’s all about achieving a lot with doing very little.

Makeup is my Super Power: Vixen

Hey guys,

Vixen made me come out of my comfort zone a bit. I was happily surprised to find a female super hero of color which is indeed quite stereotypical but at least existing. Vixen’s colors are warm bronzes, orange and yellow and I wanted to incorporate these colors in the eye look mainly. Yellow is not a color I wear regularly but I do like that Sugarpill shadow a lot!

Read & Watched in April 2017

Hey guys,

well, April's long gone but I still have to share my reading wrap-up with you. So here we go. These are some of the books I read in April. Also I mention some movies and TV show. Let me know what you've read and watched lately!

Makeup To-Go: Kendall Jenner (Met Gala 2017)

Hey guys,

This look is inspired by Kendall Jenner. I am not the biggest fan of those sisters but she looked absolutely stunning and this channel & blog is about makeup, not people. So I really wanted to share this glamorous and elegant summer party look with you. The main features are super long fluttery lashes and a beautiful glossy red pout. The rest of the makeup is kept quite minimalistic which is great in summer time.

Makeup us my Super Power: Starfire

Hey guys,

Starfire is a very interesting character from the DC universe. Her colors are copper, red and purple and this is quite an unusual and fun combo. It really inspired me and I realized that the Urban Decay Vice palette is absolutely perfect to capture this look. Also I had to add the red lip to it even though it might be too much color for some. I like my makeup fierce and colorful. :D

April Lookbook 2017

Hey guys,

April was probably the most exciting month for me this year. I started a new job (that's why I missed so many blogposts) and I really love that job. But it means that I have to travel a lot because I am commuting. I still managed to film some outfits for you. Hope you like them. :D

Makeup To-Go: Tom Ford Spring Look 2017

Hey guys,

Tom Ford had this amazing visual for their spring and summer collection. The model is absolutely stunning. She’s wearing a glossy eye look that is quite warm and almost orange. With that they paired a glossy orchid lip with an ombre effect. It’s a very special look that is very simple and still super unique. I think this would be a great look for a summer party.

Makeup is my Super Power: X23

Hey guys,

Logan was such a good movie and I very much enjoyed it. Laura is such a fascinating character in that movie and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a kid in fight scenes like that. But I loved every bit of it. So I wanted to do a look inspired by Laura Kinney alias X23 or New Wolverine. I tried to incorporate her main colors, so black and yellow for her costume and silver and grey for the Adamantium that covers her bones. The rest of the makeup is super simple since she doesn’t seem like a girl who’d care.

The Sims Book TAG

Hey guys,

If you know anything about me, you know that I love books and every once in a while I wanna switch things up and talk to you about books as well. Something you may not know is that I am absolutely obsessed with the Sims. I started playing Sims 1 when I was around 13 or something. It's been a huge part of my teenage years and has helped me stay calm on many occasions. So it's more than time for me to share with you the Sims Book Tag!

Makeup To-Go: YSL The Street & I Look

Hey guys,

I decided to share quite a lot of Spring looks with you this year. There were some amazing ones and this one was super unique and caught my attention. It's definitely on the more dramatic side, but we can do natural makeup every day. :D So let's try something new. I really like all the pink tones and that's definitely Spring to me. What do you think?

Makeup is my Super Power: Psylocke

Hey guys,

Moving right along with the Super Heroine series today I wanna share with you my look inspired by Psylocke. Her costume is mainly purple and she has this wild black hair. I’d say she’s rocking a dark sexy bombshell look. So that’s what I tried to create. :D Love the sultry smoky eyes with the full lashes a lot, the lips were a bit of a fail.
