Rock 'N' Roll Bride - Zoeva

When it comes to lining my eyes, I have been reaching for kajal more than liquid liners. 
They are easier to work with and more forgiving when you want to try out a nice smoky wing. 

A new treasure that I have been neglecting for a while is a liner from Zoeva's 'Graphic Eyes' Line.
The whole range was send to me a while back and I have been using some for the stage, but forgot to blog about them more thoroughly. Here you can find a blogpost where I used 'Regency' ; Purple Look

The consistency is really buttery. They glide on without tugging the eyes. An absolute new favorite of mine is 'Rock 'N' Roll Bride. It is a dark brown that is infused with red and pink glitter. They advise you to not use it on the water line. 

These pencils remind me of the Pearlglides from MAC. Big advantage of the Graphic Eye Pencils is that they are only half the price of the Pearlglides. The lasting powder is the same.

They are long-lasting and once they set they are waterproof! Totally landing in my daily make up bag. I went swimming yesterday and on top of that I was just sweating buckets and I can tell you that the liner was still there at the end of the day.

Price: €7,50

It truly rarely happens that Oliver tells me he likes the lipstick that I am wearing, especially when it isn't a nude color. Mostly, he runs far away when I try to give him a colorful kiss. I was really surprised when he told me he liked the lipstick.

Golden Hour Osaka Part 1

Japan has been a country that we've all been waiting for a long time to travel to. After 15 years, we finally managed to set up an exciting mini tour of three shows: Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo. We added Taiwan and also another new country, South Korea.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

My prediction that I would buy a lot of lip products during my stay in Asia was right! Asia is a walhalla of beauty products. Great skin care, lip stains, and skin brightening cremes.

Cabo Coral - Bobbi Brown

My favorite blush color would be anything in the warm, peachy coral family. It compliments my blue eyes, hair color, and fits my warm-toned complexion.

Absolute Repair by Dessange Professional Hair Luxury

The name of Dessange Professional Hair Luxury brings back fond memories of my visit to the South of France in the summer of 2016. It was the first time that I've heard of the french hair luxury brand and it's creator Jacques Dessange.

Glossy Lids and Glowing Skin

For so long, I had no idea what to do with my Pat McGrath Duo highlighter and Balm stick. That was until the glossy lid trend came along. Lisa Eldridge, Teni and more are on the glossy band wagon. I've tried it too...

Nikon Camera Set for Sale

Nikon was my first love, the D60 and then the D300s. I remember the excitement of ordering my first "expensive" camera body which was the D300s. So many precious memories were taken with this camera. The first pictures of Vincent I made with this friend and the 50mm lens.

I've decided to let go of the camera because I only use my Canon cameras at the moment. No need to hoard a thousand cameras.

Bond Girl by Charlotte Tilbury

There is something very enticing about the make up products from Charlotte Tilbury. The design is right up my alley. The combination of rose gold and bordeaux make it feel so luxuriously vintage. The price tag is quite high, but she does deliver good quality products.

The Fresh Faced Look

Hello lovelies,

Yesterday I posted this picture on my Instagram and a lot have asked for more details on the make up. I thought ahead and also tried to photograph flat lay style with the beauty products that I slapped on my face.

Chit Chat #19 'Stopping Time' Photography

Photography has always been a big passion of mine. It is one of the main reasons why I started my blog SMOONSTYLE. The love for documenting life and in particular people has been with me since I bought my first DSLR.

Lip Paints by Infallible

Matte or glossy, there is something to find for everyone's desire. Red and nudes appeal to me the most. They also happen to be my favorites from the Lip Paint collection by L’Oréal.

Retro Red: Christmas Day Makeup

During the Christmas craziness, I totally forgot to post my holiday make up look. I've kept the look quite simple with a little bit of sparkle and red lipstick to finish it of. With this look you can't go wrong during the holidays. After I had dinner, which was oily, I took off the remaining red lipstick and switched to a nude lipstick.

Chit Chat #18 A New Year

Happy New Year everyone! May this one be filled with more happiness and joy than the last year. 2016 was a year with a lot of highs and lows. Too many tragedies took place close where to we felt safe. Too many tragedies happen without us even knowing about it. Fear settled in the hearts of a lot of people. We must not let fear take over our way of life. We should stay vigilant, but also remain kind toward each other. Help each other. Respect and love each other.  See each day that we get to live as a gift and don't take it for granted.
