Things We Should Leave in 2017

I know. The first month of 2018 is gone and nobody wants to go back to the past.

But I’ve just seen these two videos by Connor Franta and Arden Rose and I thought: “I love complaining so this is the perfect blog post for me!”

So here I am! A month late with lots of ranting to do!

Let me start off with the obvious:

The Current US President

Even if he is one of the worst people on Earth, these past two years have been hilarious. People say you should not find all of this funny because this administration is endangering millions and millions of people. And it’s true. I 100% agree. But I can’t help be incredibly entertained by it. Whenever there is news about Russia, collusion and general weird shit that happened, I need to know about it. And not just the general idea. I need to be aware of every single detail.

It’s awful, I know, but if it weren’t reality, it would have been the best tv show ever created.



Too Much Makeup

And here I’m not talking about using makeup to make yourself look similar to a celebrity for Halloween. Those are amazing and the people who do them are unbelievable talented.

I’m talking about excessive contouring, highlighting, long-ass eyelashes that you can see they’re fake for a mile distance and sadly, even more stuff!

I am so tired of looking through YouTube and seeing these people completely altering their appearance and then looking into the camera with a sultry look.

Stop. Please.



sultry looks bring me to my next point:

over sexualization of women and young girls.

Why do women are always expected to be sexy? Why are people are over sexualizing teenagers? (Yes, I’m talking about the Stranger Things cast members. They are children. Stop.)

It’s fucking disgusting.

Talking about something disgusting… sexual predators.

Reading and listening to the stories these women have had to go through made me sick to my stomach. I couldn’t even read the entire articles.

I was so amazed and inspired by all the amazing women who came forward and stood up for themselves. It took and unbelievable amount of courage and I applaud them and stand with them.



Tabù Topics

Let’s be more upfront and voice our issues and our problems. Like menstruation. 49% of the world population is female and we still can’t talk freely about our periods?

And what about our sexuality? In my small and close-minded town, talking about sexuality and the different life styles makes people uncomfortable. Why should it?

You’re straight? Good for you!

You’re gay? Great!

You’re trying to figure it out? You go girl, and explore!

Why is it so hard to understand?!



Most Online Influencers

I admit it. I did follow some of them on Youtube. The big ones like the old-school british ones and a couple of americans but when they reach the point that it is their job, I unsubscribe. (Aside from Hannah and Stefan Michalak. Go check them out. Their videos are absolutely stunning.

I like watching people who create content because they are passionate about it. Not because they are required to.

I don’t care about their fabulous lives and high living standards. I DO NOT CARE. I want to see how other regular people live and what they are passionate about.



Superhero TV shows

I’ve said it before, but I feel like I need to repeat it again. STOP. There are too many white straight costume-clad superhero.

I want more minorities represented in the superhero world, I want more powerful women in fantasy.

Let’s do it, please.

Lily James

I fell in love with Lily as soon as I saw her in “Downton Abbey” and I’ve been following her work ever since.

She is such a lovely, funny and adorable person! In Cinderella she was so good and I can’t wait to see her in “Baby Driver”!

Her style is always very sophisticated, classy and at the same time innovative.

I love her grungy looks when she wears a super bold dark eyeshadow and a nude lipstick.

It’s her trademark look and I love it.

Another one of my favourite looks she wore is this winged liner with a silvery eyeshadow and a soft pink lipstick.

It’s so simple and yet bold. It suits her so much. Even if usually her go-to colour tone is warm, she can pull off cool-toned shades too.

But that doesn’t mean she can wear an amazing bold lipstick like in this picture from the Cinderella London Premiere.

So yeah, I love Lily.

I hope you like this post and let me know your favourite look of hers.

4 Favourite RED Lipsticks

Ever since I got into makeup, I developed a huge obsession with red lipstick. But wearing such a bold colour is scary!

The first few times I wore it in public, I felt like I had everybody’s eyes on me. And I said it before here on my blog, people aren’t going to look at you. Stop being so self-centred.

Although, in a small (-ish) town like mine, it is probably true. People are going to stare and make judg-y comments. To them I say: fuck off.

Without much further ado, let’s talk about the lipsticks!

IMG_7664Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107

This is probably the first red lipstick I have ever bought and it holds a dear place in my heart. After getting the matte liquid lipsticks, you quickly realize this is not matte. Well, it is. It’s not glossy, but it transfers. Not that I’m complaining, it’s one of my most used products and I absolutely adore it!

IMG_7662Essence Matt Matt Matt 06

2.89€.

Is there anything left to say? And the quality is spectacular! They last all day, they are not super drying and they colour goes on your lips very smoothly. Even if the range only has 8 colours, they are definitely worth the 18€ I have spent on them.

Wet n Wild “Cinnamon Spice”

Buying these lipsticks has been a great decision from my part. The formula is great and it’s so incredibly cheap!  The packaging is not the best and the shape of the bullet doesn’t make it easy for us to apply it.

If I could, I’d buy them all. There is very little I love more than high quality cheap lipsticks.

Deborah “Fluid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick” in 07

My personal mission is to own the entire range. They are the best drugstore liquid lipsticks I have ever tried. They dry incredibly quickly, they last a meal with no problem and they are very comfortable for hours. I wore it a couple of days ago to uni (Yes, I did go to class I can’t even believe it) and it lasted very well

The shop assistant says she is going to call me when they come back in stock. I love her.


Hope you liked this… it took me ages to write and especially to choose the 4 lipstick I loved the most!

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington on the red carpet is always on point. Always super classy and edgy.

Lead actress on ABC’s “Scandal”, Kerry is one of the few african american women who are protagonists of their own show and she starred in HBO’s “Confirmation”, a show about Anita Hill, a women who had the courage to come forward with accusations of sexual assaults against Clarence Thomas at his Supreme Court nomination hearings.

She is such a model for strong independent women.

Since we are here to talk about beauty, let’s go!

Kerry has always glow-y and flawless skin and either a bright lip or a very natural finish. This first picture is from the magazine “InStyle” and the makeup artist who did her makeup wrote:

HyperFocal: 0

“To create healthy and even skin on Kerry, I used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in Cocoa,” said Gonzalez. “Then, to make her skin even more radiant, I rubbed Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 30 against my fingers and dabbed it over her cheekbones, forehead, chin, and nose bridge. This sunscreen, in particular, has a sheen to it. For the bold, burgundy look I used Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Deep Plum and layered it with Charlotte Tilbury’s lipstick in Glastonberry to create a certain shade,” she said. Meanwhile, for the “almost-bare” lip look, the makeup artist “dabbed Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel to match Kerry’s lip tone and add some moisture.

HyperFocal: 0

I love her in these photos. She looks flawless! She has a natural glow that makes her look like a Goddess!

Another one of her look I adore is this one she wore at the 2017 Golden Globes. I love the minimal eye makeup and the big lashed paired up with the purple lipstick.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Purple is a colour I never wear but I have recently bought an Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick in the shade 07 and I definitely have to start wearing it during fall. I’m not sure I can pull it off, though.
