Aaah, let's talk about make-up <3
I finished a course as a make-up artist, which was very interesting and i learned a lot. But sadly, i don't do much with it. I'll have to experiment/practice more! (But where's the time to do that?) I've come from never wearing make-up (like 2 years ago) to wearing make-up almost every day. But don't get me wrong, it's almost always a nude look. I don't like over the top make-up for every day. I think it's very important to have a smooth skin and healthy complexion. Those are the keywords. So, a proper care of your skin is very important, and don't forget the day cream, never ever forget day cream.

These are the things i use every day. My little beauty ritual in the morning.

1. Stay on cover stick from Nivea: This is the first thing i use after my day cream. I use it for the dark circles under my eyes and the red glow i naturally have. I've tried out a lot of cover sticks (no expensive ones) but this one is the best so far. The only thing that's bothering me a bit is, after a little while, it get's an odd smell. But it's not that bad, so i still like it a lot.

2. Mineral foundation from Maybelline: I don't use a liquid foundation like most of you, i don't know why... Got this from a friend who didn't like it, but i do! It's the lightest color there is, but i'm pretty pale. I hate the fact that there are some girls who think you have to get a darker foundation, to look tanned. No you don't, It! Looks! Fake!

3. Sculpting Blush from Bourjois: Ah, step 3, there we go. This is what i use to get a little bit of that tanned look. It doesn't really pop out, but like i said, i'm going for the nude look. And i look healthier with blush, everyone does.

4. Liquid Eyeliner from H&M: I only use this when i still have time in the morning. With eyeliner on, you have instant class. But it takes a lot of practice, and sometimes i still screw up.

5. Liner Effect Mascara from Bourjois: Last but not least, mascara. Tried a whole bunch, and this is absolutely my favorite! It promises a false liner effect, but i don't know... That's not what i get. But it's not what i need. My eyelashes get huge volume and are dramatic black. Just love it!

The brush is my moms, it's really old, but still perfectly good.

My make-up case, where i stash the make-up i don't use very often. In the summer i'll experiment with color again, already looking forward to that.

Look for today

First day of work this week, and we had very important guests.
They came from Sweden to look at our store! So i had to look my best :)
Of course i didn't work on those shoes, but they make the look!

Dress and tights - H&M

About me

Let me tell you about me.
First off, you have to know this blog is purely for fun. Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't.

Hey, i'm Lieselotte (Lotte) 23 and live in Belgium. Currently working at the H&M in Ghent, as a sales advisor, but in the summer i'll go in training to be a visual merchandiser. I'm really looking forward to that! I work with clothes, i can't say i'm working in the fashion industry, but i'm interested in it.

I have a walk in closet, with lots of clothes, but no expensive brands. I'm trying to have a distinct style, don't wanna be a girl like one in a million. But of course there are trends that i follow like everyone else. I don't wear pants. Mostly skirts, but i have to wear more dresses! I love the pinup girl clothing style. Oh, and i have a huge shoe collection.

Then my other passion. MUSIC. I can't play an instrument, but listen to music on daily bases and trying to go to as many concerts as possible.This year Groezrock's another highlight, seventh time i'm going and it just keeps getting better and better. My music interest is wide, but i mostly listen to post-hardcore, screamo and dubstep. But listening to Katy Perry makes me happy... :)

My other interests are make-up, baking cupcakes, going to parties and thinking about my next tattoo.

I live together with my boyfriend and cat, Sushi. Life is great at the moment <3

What's in my bag?

The post everyone has done, but stays fun!

The bag i'm currently using:
Friis and company, scored in the sales.
It's a big bag, which i love, everything fits in it.

1. Dayplanner: I really need this for the irregular hours i'm working. And it's great to always have pictures of my loved ones with me.

2. Magazine: For all the hours i'm on the train. I'll always have Flair with me, a dutch magazine. Sometimes a book, but that's so heavy...

3. Wallet: Everybody needs one :) This one is from Pieces, basic and classic, i love it!

4. Glasses: My eyes aren't that bad, but on some moments i really need one. This summer i want a new model! A geeky one ^^

5. I-Pod: Aaaah, I can't live without my I-pod! I obviously need the pink cover and headphone ;) Music is my life. At the moment i'm mostly listening to Underoath's new album Disambiguation.

6. Lip Balm: The all time favorite labello (with a little touch of color) But also one of the body shop, it smells great.

7. Keys: You can't see, but the key ring is a cupcake.
    Badge: The H&M badge. "How can i help you?"

8. Cellphone: The most amazing cellphone, a pink nokia C3, totally me.

9. Gloves and hat: Unfortunately there's still no sunshine in little belgium, so i really need these accessories.

First Post

Wow, the first post.
Hopefully this will be a fresh, new blog, filled with lifestyle. It's the first time i'm doing something like this, and the smooth writing i'll still have to learn (if you can learn at all) I'm from Belgium and speak dutch, so this is a double hard task for me to write in english...

We'll see another day, now it's time to go to bed...
