Midnight Mint (NYE Look) - Makeup To-Go

Hey guys,
I love me some Retro Glam and this look is exactly that. Inspired by the 60s and 70s this look combines some mint green eyeshadow but peachy lips and the colors are quite pastel and soft. I love this. I know this is not your traditional New Years look but I like to think out of the box and I hope you enjoy this just as much. :)

Midnight Ruby (NYE) - Makeup To-Go

Hey guys,

I wanted to do an unusual New Year’s Eve look so I decided to try the glossy lid trend and we’ll see how it goes. For this I chose to use red and black colors. This look is quite festive but I can totally understand if you need glitter in your New Year’s look. :D I just wanted to try something different because we can’t all look the same, right?

Heymountain Haul #8 - Holiday Edition

Hey guys,

I hope you had some happy Holidays and a great time with your family and friends. We're still travelling back and forth and bringing and receiving gifts and eating too much food. So while I am gone I wanted to share this prerecorded video with you. It's a Christmasy unboxing of some luxurious beauty products. Some of those we gave as gifts, others I kept for myself. Enjoy!

Makeup To-Go: Dior Precious Rocks Holiday Collection 2017

Hey guys,

Oh my God, it’s almost Christmas. Time flies. Today we’re going to a more fierce Holiday look. This is probably more appropriate for a fancy Christmas party but I liked trying something different. The colors used are very festive, cranberry and gold and bronze colors. Still it is very unique and not for everyone.

12 Days of Christmas Beauty Swap - Unboxing!

Hey guys,

This year my first 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Swap took place. Unfortunately we weren't too many people participating, but for next year I definitely wanna start planning much earlier and hopefully it will be much bigger. Nonetheless we had a good time unboxing our Secret Santa swap packages and that is what I wanna share with you today.

Makeup To-Go: Givenchy L'Autre Noir Holiday Look 2017

Hey guys,

If you’re still look for the perfect Christmas look this might be a great inspiration. I think it’s my favorite Holiday look I have seen so far this year. It is very simple, great for beginners or when you’re in a hurry. Also it is quite effective and it fits a lot of occasions for the Holidays. I love love love the lips. But the silver glitter on the liner is pretty cute as well.

Vicious Villains: Evil Queen

Hey guys,

Ok, Snow White is hands down one of my all-time favorite Disney movies. I love the aesthetic of the movie so much. So for this last look of this series, let’s do the Evil Queen. She’s rocking some purple eyeshadow in the lids but there’s also a hue of grey. Her cheeks and lips are deep pink. This is obviously a look inspired by a different makeup era.

Makeup To-Go: Armani Holiday Collection 2017

Hey guys,

Today’s look is inspired by the Armani Holiday Collection of 2017. This look has a very unique style to it. The eyes are quite messy and the color combination of gold and purple is definitely special. The dark red lips are quite sharp in contrast. I think the look works perfectly on the model, so I wanted to try it out for you.

Vicious Villains: Queen of Hearts

Hey guys,

Ok, this might not be the most wearable look ever but I have never really tried giving my eyes different eyeshadow colors. So I wanted to try this with the look of Queen of Hearts because it matches her outfit. Her face isn’t really anything crazy, she rather looks like a big child. She also behaves like a big child. So yeah, what do you think?

Read & Watched November 2017

Hey guys,

November was such a busy month for me, but I still managed to read some. Unfortunately I only have one movie to talk about for now. We're just not really in the mood for cinema right now. But I'll try to get better at it again. But if you're here for the books, feel free to watch the video or check out the German reviews on my other blog down below.

Makeup To-Go: YSL Night 54 Holiday Look

Hey guys,

Today we’re doing a Holiday inspired look that is very glamorous and eye-catching. This is great for a fancy Christmas party or maybe New Years Eve. I loved the idea of the glitter liner above the crease. It’s such a fun detail and will stand out. The color combination of the purple and the silver glitter is great and very festive as well. You can wear a nude lip with it or make the wing a bit smaller to achieve a wearable look. Here’s the original picture.

Vicious Villains: Scar

Hey guys,

Ok we can’t talk about Disney villains and not mention Scar. He is responsible for one of the most shocking children’s movie death of all time. I don’t actually remember how I felt about it as a child, but The Lion King was the movie of my childhood generation. So here we go. I wanted to stick to the fur colors Scar has around his eyes, so shades of burgundy and a more golden brown, also a bit of black. Then I obviously had to do the black lips. What do you think?

Visiting Ebergötzen - Max & Moritz - Wilhelm Busch

Hey guys,

In the beginning of October we had a holiday and my boyfriend came visiting. We went to a small town called Ebergötzen which has the European bread museum and a small museum about Max & Moritz and Wilhelm Busch. These children's stories were very important to my childhood, so this was very special. Wilhelm Busch lived in this town when he was a kid and some say that those stories are inspired by his childhood and a very unique friendship he had with the later mayor of Ebergötzen. Nonetheless, I wanted to show you some impressions. :)

Makeup To-Go: Lana del Rey at the EMAs 2017

Hey guys,

You may know that Lana del Rey is my favorite current musician. I love her music a lot and listen to it non-stop. So when I saw her look from the EMAs 2017 I really wanted to recreate it. She had quite a strong liner with kind of 50s/60s makeup. Her nude lips were quite defined and looked super plump. Hope you like this.

Vicious Villains: Governor Ratcliffe

Hey guys,

Ok, today it’s going to get a bit funky. For this look I had to get all my electric eyeshadow and eyeliner colors. Governor Ratcliffe is absolutely fabulous and even has a bit of a gay touch, I think. I remember that he very much entertained me as a child. So let’s do this crazy colorful look!

Used up! Candle Edition - November 2017

Hey guys,

I've probably already told you about my tiny obsession with candles. Since I can't do any more hauls for at least another month, I'll show you some of the candles and home scents I've used up lately. Most of it is Yankee Candle because it's quite easy to get in Germany, but there's also 1 Bath and Body Works candle and one from the Lidl brand.

Makeup To-Go: Clarins Graphik Look 2017

Hey guys,

So for some reason I haven’t really done any seasonal trend looks so far. So let’s do this fun and sexy look inspired by the Clarins Graphik collection. The lids are so interesting, shimmery green and very different and unique. It is paired with a feline eye liner that is very dark and fun but nothing for everyday for me.

Vicious Villains: Jafar

Hey guys,

Ok, Jafar was never a villain I enjoyed too much. He’s just a bit boring, to be fair. Still I loved the world of Aladdin and so this had to be on my list. Also I think this look is still fun. I took the dark taupish color he has around the eyes and added a fun dramatic eyeliner. This is a look I usually love most in January and February. :D

October Lookbook 2017

Hey guys,

well, we all have to wear clothes. Sometimes we even put effort in it. Especially around September and October I actually enjoy dressing up, looking a bit more fancy and have some fun with my look. So here's a couple of outfits of October, which one is your favorite?

Makeup To-Go: Arabesque Berry Style Look

Hey guys,

So I was looking up some of the current visual by different brands for their fall and winter 2017 collections. This one definitely stood out to me because it’s very different and special but still quite wearable, I think. The metallic purple lips are super in trend right now. But I also have been loving this purple eyeshadow.

Vicious Villains: Hades

Hey guys,

This look is probably going to be my favorite of this series. I love experimenting with crazy lip colors. So this definitely made me happy. Also Hades is such a fantastic villain. He is witty and he has quite some bad luck. Also his minions are pretty stupid. It’s not his fault. So I took inspiration from his blue flames and black apparel and overall his grey look.

Used up! October 2017

Hey guys,

It's time for some beauty trash. I haven't done a Used up! video in a while and by now my closet is full of trash. So this is just a way to get started and there'll be more of these videos before the year is over, I promise. This video has a lot of Heymontain products because I love their stuff. But there's also other random things...

Makeup To-Go: Julianne Moore in Suburbicon

Hey guys,

You all know I love sharing movie inspired looks. Julianne Moore had two very similar looks in two different movies lately. One is Kingsman 2 and the other one is Suburbicon. So I decided to use Suburbicon as an inspiration today. I love the Barbie-sque touch with the blond hair and the soft pink tones on her eyes and lips.

Vicious Villains: Lady Tremaine

Hey guys,

Sometimes wanting the best for your family still is evil. Lady Tremaine definitely had mostly the best for her daughters in mind - still she basically enslaved Cinderella. So we hate her and it feels good. She is a very sophisticated and elegant villain and so is her makeup look. The burgundy eyes and berry lips are perfect for this season.

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Vicious Villains: Mother Gothel

Hey guys,

Another perfect fall look rocked by a Disney villain. Today we’re talking about Mother Gothel. I have never seen Tangled but her look is super appropriate for the season. So this had to be on my list. The golden-orange eyes and berry lip go perfectly with her glamorous burgundy dress. So let’s get recreating!

Fall (Yankee) Candle Haul

Hey guys,

Have you heard of my obsession with scented candles? We're actually at this point now that I have secret and hidden scented candle stocks in our apartment. My boyfriend always frowns on me when I order more. But this haul I just couldn't prevent. There were some great deals going on and I needed some gifts... So yeah, excuses. Have fun watching!

Vicious Villains: Cruella De Vil

Hey guys,

Can you get more evil then a woman who is willing to kill puppies for a coat? I don’t think so. Cruella De Vil has nothing good to speak for her. She’s just despicable. Her look is also very distinct with the green eyeshadow, quite round shaped, and then the red lips with it. Well, she would probably wear Estee Lauder and Chanel, I am going for cheaper alternatives…

Monday, November 13, 2017

Vicious Villains: Ursula

Hey guys,

For our new series we wanna look deep into the eyes of evil - and duplicate some famous Disney villain’s looks. Today we’re starting off with my personal favorite: Ursula. She is the sea witch that steals Arielle’s voice in the Little Mermaid. Her skin has a purple color, her eyelids are tinted blue and her lips are painted red. So let’s do this… just more wearable.

Today I wanted to share some more autumnal outfits with you. I know I am still quite far behind but I promise I'll catch up. It's just hard to find time for blogging. So here you go.
