Hello everyone!

I wasn’t satisfied with the amount of looks I did for Valentine’s day, so I decided to come up with a third and last look for Valentine’s day! It is a soft look and I only did the eyes because I was going for a more dramatic look because I was going to the second day of carnival (next post you’ll know more about this) so I hope you get inspired by the eyeshadow colours I combined for this make-up, so you cant put together the rest of your look on your own! Make-up is all about your own free expression, right?

I mainly used the MAC warm neutrals palette to put together this look. I don’t know the names of the shadows, (MAC should really put the names of their shadows at the back of their palettes) so I am just going to say which ones I used.

The colours I used from the palette are the second, third and fourth one on the top row, and a plain taupe shade.

The look

Here, I have applied the plaine taupe color in my crease with a fluffy brush, as a transition shade.

Here, I applied the third color in the middle and outer corner of my eye. Next step is to apply the fourth darker shade in the outer corner with a smaller brush. Blend out. Final eyeshadow step: use the sorbet color on a flat brush on the inner third of your eyelid and in the tearduct. I also used it as a highlight shade under my browbone. I love this as a highlighter!

Finish off with mascara. Go ahead and do your brows, foundation and blush as you like. I would go for a girly, feminine pink blush. I didn't put it on, because as I said earlier, I was going for something more dramatic. A lipstick suggestion is the Kiko lipstick in Romance Cyclamen. I love the heartshape it has!

Little recipe for your Valentine’s day

In addition to this post I have a little recipe prepared for you guys. You can eat it with your friends, family or of course your Valentine! I am going to eat this in the student house watching some Netflix because for me that is the ultimate happiness at the end of a long and heavy day at college, haha!

I got this package as a present from my dad when I was heading back to the student house for another semester. It is a mugcake. I think you can find it around stores everywhere. It is by Dr. Oetker, so it is very universal in all countries.

What you need:

  • Cake mix by Dr. Oetker
  • 50 ml milk
  • spoon
  • mug
  • Microwave or oven

The recipe itself is very simple. First off, you need to measure the 50 ml of milk. You can do this with a measuring cup or a tablespoon. I like to use a tablespoon because I don’t do this measurement very neat. I just make sure there is a bottom of milk in the mug. When you have poured your milk into the cup, it is time for the cake mix. While stirring with your spoon, add the powder mix to your mug. Keep on stirring until you get an even batter.

The only thing left to do is bake your mugcake. Don’t forget to put your microwave at 750 watt. Let your mugcake bake for about 1,5 minutes. The baketime is something you have to encounter, maybe you like it more fluid or more baked, so it depends on what you like. This is more a guideline.

When the cake is baked, let it cool off for about 2 minutes. After that, the cake is ready to eat! I think it is very delicious. It makes me think of a soufflé or as we like to call it: a moelleux. The only difference here is that the fluid chocolate is a layer at the bottom of the mug.

I like this recipe and it fits Valentine’s day perfectly because it is a very sweet and soft day for all you lovers out there! I think it is very fitting for a cosy evening in with your loved ones and enjoying each other’s company with something delicious to eat. Enjoy this cute little recipe guys!
