PASSPORT PROOF

PASSPORT PROOF

The travel season is about to kick off. Which probably means you have been drooling over beautiful landscapes at Google images at least once (or too many times). Or stressing about the weight of your buffalo-sized suitcase. However, I’ve been dealing with a completely different aspect that comes with exploring countries… Renewing my passport. It’s …

KICK PLEAT RED

KICK PLEAT RED

What can I say? I am a sucker for beauty recommendations. And after hearing both Yokaw and Matsuki rave about the Cheek & Lip Tint in Kick Pleat Red by & Other Stories, I could not help myself but to spend those 15 euros.

BEAUTY TALK WITH MATSUKI

BEAUTY TALK WITH MATSUKI

Matsuki is a hairdresser at Oh, You Pretty Things in Amsterdam and apart from having the most desirable hair she has a beauty stash to match every other. She literally stuffs her daily bag with products she never uses and pretty much buys everything that either smells good or has an awesome package. Time to …

BEAUTY TALK WITH ZOE

Originally from LA and now living in New York, digital strategist Zoe Chait is a travel, yoga, food and sleep enthusiast. She always seems to know best when it comes to minimalist beauty must haves, is – like me – a fan of RMS Beauty and undoubtedly has the most gorgeous skin. Curious to get …

ONE PALETTE TO RULE THEM ALL

ONE PALETTE TO RULE THEM ALL

I think I’ve found the Swiss knife in the land of beauty. Everyone, say hello to Lancôme’s Absolu Au Naturel Palette, a multifunctional wonder I stumbled upon at the airport. I’m a bit ashamed to admit it, but the one thing that bothers me about my makeup pouch is its size limitation. Somehow it’s never …

PRIMARY YELLOW

PRIMARY YELLOW

I used to absolutely hate yellow, but the more I think about it (trust me, I’ve even been thinking about a yellow bag lately) the more it grows on me. So when I walked in backstage at Delpozo and saw the primary yellow in the inner corners of the models eyes, I got really excited.

BREAKING DOWN BLUSH

BREAKING DOWN BLUSH

I wouldn’t refer to myself as a dare devil when we’re talking daily makeup routine. But I don’t color between the lines when it comes to the use of particular products. And despite what you might think… You don’t have to be a make up wiz to master the many tricks and random applications of …

BEAUTY TALK WITH YOKAW

BEAUTY TALK WITH YOKAW

I had the pleasure of working with Yokaw (she’s a make up artist!) a few times now. And every time I do so, I am amazed by her creativity and what she comes up with even if I give her the vaguest description of my ideas. Remember our editorial at the beach? Her work. Remember …

BEAUTY TALK WITH SABRINA

BEAUTY TALK WITH SABRINA

I remember when I started this beauty talk series, some of you asked me to do one on…me. I always thought it wouldn’t be as fun to share my own tips and tricks as I pretty regularly share beauty favorites I come across. But here it is – better late than never – a beauty …
