Hello my sweet readers,
Happy New Year to you all!!! I hope you had a wonderful evening with your friends and family! I finally got to give my DIY gifts, which is always the climax of the year. I’ll be posting that real soon. I’ve had pretty busy days as I was making these gifts and preparing for the singing today! I’m super excited!
I did wanted to share a post on New Years Day. But before I continue with my Cup of Favorites: Part II, I thought I’d share with you my top 20 favorite looks of the year. Maybe you’re curious and wonder why I don’t post Part II immediately. Well… I have the sweetest boyfriend in the world. I’m blessed that he loves cleaning… He’s in this frenzy cleaning mode once a week haha. But when the cleaning monster is there, he throws all the little trinkets that he encounters together or somewhere, as long as it is out of sight… So the result is, that most of my favorite lipsticks have vanished, literally! I admit it (not blaming you, boo), I’m pretty bad at putting those back when I’ve used it. I usually accumulate 6-8 lip products in my bag… I’m working on it people! It’s on the top of my list of New Years Resolutions for 2017! Seriously!
So here are my favorite looks of 2016!
I love my blues and purples! I also think I’m the winter type, so I usually get more compliments when I wear blues and fushia. Thus I tend to stay in that color scheme.
I’ve learned that using color can be less intimidating when combined with a neutral brown or grey to blend out. I love how colorful and soft this look is.
I rarely do a brown smoky eye, but I particularly like this look because it is not too warm and even though it is smoky, it’s not over the top.
Here I’m giving my Urban Decay Electric pallet some love! This pallet is so versatile!
Extreme liner. I feel that it makes my little eyes bigger.
I love being inspired by my surroundings. This particular look was inspired by the grey weather in Belgium when summer faded and made place for Autumn. You might think Autumn would be all warm colors. But in Belgium, there is a weather that is in between that is foggy, misty and mysterious. I shared this look before with a little tutorial, if you’re interested: Cup of looks: Misty Forest
Even though it doesn’t belong in my color scheme, I love corals!!
Another corally look, using the Urban Decay Vice 2 pallet!
I was again giving my Urban Decay Vice 2 pallet some love.
Obsessed with Plums and Berries!!
A blue double wing liner using the back of my Too Faced primer tube to obtain a winged liner. I never use tape to do these type of looks.
A soft coral cut crease with the Urban Decay Vice 2 pallet. The shiny pout is obtained with the Lancôme Juicy Shaker in Melimelon.
Shiny lids with Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Nillionnaire on a basic smokey eye with the Too Faced Chocolate Bonbons pallet and Colourpop SSS in Dare on top of the purple liner (Colourpop Piggy bank) on the waterline. I love the orchid color on the lips which is the lippiestix in Whip.
I’m so in love with that NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Berry Strudel.
My basic look is usually a neutral eye with a colourful liner. It doesn’t get old for me and it’s so easy to wear matching liner with the clothes. The color on your lips ties everything together.
This is my favorite color combination.
First time that I wore lashes…
I find neutral looks with a bit of shimmer very classy and wearable :D. Even if it weren’t wearable I’d still wear it though.
First time I had this much make up on haha. I am a creative person, but I had always been putting off going for crazy make up…
Just kidding haha!! It was a good mask though. Check my post if you haven’t already: Cup of Reviews: L’Oréal Pure Clay Mask
If there’s any particular look you’d like me to recreate or describe the products, please let me know and I’ll look it up.
Enjoy your New Years Day Beautifuls and I’ll talk to you in my next post!
