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 talk with me.

THIS YEAR’S BEAUTY VOWS

Even though my body is still processing the many toasts, shots and shameful dances from New Years Eve (yes, that happened!), I felt it was time to take a step back and look at some changes for the future. So following Sabrina’s footsteps, I wrote down some beauty pointers for 2015.

5 PIECE FRENCH WARDROBE, AGAIN

Yep, I am really trying this again. I passed once (see how I made it possible here) and failed miserably over the last 12 months, but as of January 1st I am back on the 5 Piece French Wardrobe principle again. (If you want to read what it’s all about, it’s best to read this (very old) post.)

GELUKKIG NIEUWJAAR!

Happy New Year!! Or, as we say in Dutch, Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! It is funny how this one specific date kind of resets us (or at least makes us want to reset) and start fresh, isn’t it?

Very big fat capitals.

SALE FIND

Last weekend I braved the insane sale rush at Zara (not online, I went into the actual store) and came home with this boatneck ribbed knit. It looks like nothing on the hanger, but it's really chic on. (Here's a really vague detail shot on Instagram.)

Have you done any sale shopping yet?

EMBRACE ADVENTURE OR STICK TO CLASSICS?

Sometimes I’m dying for M&M's. Other moments I like to indulge in fancy macarons or chocolates. It depends on the day, my mood and my willingness to spend (a lot of) money.

WHAT TO SMEAR FOR THE HOLIDAYS?

Drop the jingle bells, candy canes and cranberry sauce...

A few days ago, Sabrina showed you some pointers on how to dress in the month of celebration. But what’s a festive outfit without a playful beauty style?

Reason enough for me to round up the year and finish your look, together with team afterDRK – and a professional crew of course. Allow us to demonstrate some fun beauty options to match your upcoming Holiday ensembles. Warning: these look might provoke a certain reaction when worn underneath a mistletoe (apply at own risk!).
