Face of May #1

by 2.5.13

Hi Sweets,

Luckily for me no jetlag. We had a very long flight back from Jakarta to Amsterdam with a 5 hour delay. That meant that I missed my flight to Stuttgart and therefor had to wait another 5 hours at Schiphol for my flight back to Schwarzwald. Coming home was like heaven. One of the things I enjoy so much is the silence, my own pillow and of course having my loved ones near.

During the last months, my posts were mainly about traveling and Retrospect. This month I want to post a couple of 'Face of the Day's' which will be called 'Face of May'.

Today's a very casual day:

The products used for this look:

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 51'Light Vanilla'
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer nr. 52
  • Sleek blush trio in 373 (only the blush)
  • MAC Viva Glam Cindy Lipgloss
  • Stila Kitten eyeshadow
  • Estee Lauder Sumptuous extreme 
  • Catrice 010 Blond but Brow'd

Wish you all a wonderful day!

    No one in the world deserve a jetlag! Is horrible! HAHA A beautiful makeup for use on the day\morning! So simple and beautiful (: Wish you a wonderful day too,my dear!

  3. :3 you look beautiful!! what else I can said?
    oh yes, to bad about the fly, but thank God you don´t have the jetlag, ugly thing.


  4. Oh it will be the "Face of May series" :D I like! I´ve already congratulate you but once again (and in german :P) Herzlichen Glückwunsch und ganz viel Gesundheit für euch!

  5. beautiful, is not fair to make you wait, but you'll be at home with your family, how nice where you live I hope to meet this great landscape Schwarzwald ...

  6. It's nice being at home after a long trip and lots of memories. Unfortunately things almost never go as expected with flights, but at least now you're able to rest with no jetlag :)

    This first Face of May make-up looks so fresh and perfect for Spring! I just like how the colors match and make the skin look so radiant and healthy. It's quite hard to obtain that result with a pale skin, in my opinion. I was thinking of purchasing a spring lipgloss, that one looks like a nice inspiration. Have a nice evening over there!

  7. Wunderschön! :)
    Und auch hier noch einmal herzlichen Glückwunsch! Ein Kind könnte keine besseren Eltern haben! :)

  8. Oh the joys of coming home, there's really no place like home :)
    Very nice make up look, very fresh and spring-like, I like!

  9. I appreciate that you still continue to interact with us during your precious time off. I noticed The Classical Conspiracy behind you. Is that a vinyl in a frame? Also some kind of egg ornament on the shelf?
    It's a nice look Simone. Your eyes look like two highly polished sapphires. There is a trend in the UK for girls to take foundation to the extreme, it makes them look like they've been tangoed. It's quite disturbing seeing someone with a orange coloured face & a white neck. A look like your one is much better, it's very nice indeed.

    I would like to congratulate you on your pregnancy, It feels so surreal, it seems like just yesterday you were a young girl barely out of high school, now you're a young woman starting a family.
    Out of respect for Oliver's, yours & your child's privacy I will not mention this again, I just wanted to congratulate you.

    I'm sorry this comment was mostly off topic & perhaps a little too personal, if so feel free to delete it, I won't be offended if you do.

    I like the new format of the blog, the text headers look a lot more clean. I hope to see you again, in 2014 perhaps?

  10. Your face is so beautiful! Wanna hear something funny? When my mom saw this picture she asked me "is she pregnant?" and I was like how do you know, and she answer "can be noticed by her eyes, mommy eyes" ... yeah, weird haha but you look gorgeous! <3 Loved the look :)

    1. Yeaaah, you notice when a woman is pregnant... There's something that glows in their face!

      I wish Simone a wonderful pregnancy.

  11. You look radiant! I really appreciate you posting here, especially in your free time, after an exhausting journey.
    Sunny greeting from North Rhine-Westphalia!

  12. The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundations are my favorite! I buy only them. They're as good as any expensive brand but much more affordable!
    Your face of May are lovely, I can't wait to see the faces of the next month!

    And there's nothing better than home!

  13. Very beautiful make up.

  14. Hi Simone,

    freut mich, dass du gut zu Hause angekommen bist.

    ich wollte dir herzlichst zu deiner Schwangerschaft gratulieren und wünsche euch alles Gute für die Zukunft:) Habe es mir bei der Retrospectshow schon gedacht und mich dann sehr gefreut, als es offiziell wurde!
    Liebe Grüße Michelle <3
