Good News! + Collab with CocooAndCurls (YouTube Video)

Hi Followers!

I have some really good news to share, I passed my thesis defence! So that means that I am officially going to GRADUATE! Super cool & exciting, right?! I do find so myself!! Even though I am done with my Bachelor study, I am looking forward to starting something new ūüėČ ( I will share in the future) Currently I have my part-time job at Zara and seeing that I will not have to stress with school stuff anymore, I can now get back to Blogging & Vlogging. On my free days I am now going to dedicate them to being keeping myself busy with the things I love. [Creating content of course] I am extremely looking forward to what is to come. ūüėÄ

So starting off on a good note I created a make-up tutorial in collaboration¬†with CocooAndCurls. We decided to do a make-up look which included something green. Below is the video of what I put together, a make-up look which included¬†a POP of green in the waterline. This went live on Sunday, so check out the video below & don’f forge to give it a thumbs-up. For Cocoo’s video just have a quick look in the description box!

Until next time…much love!

GRWM | RED LIPS GLAM @SJs_Obsessions

Hi Loves,

First video on my YouTube Channel for the year. In the video I share with you a look I wore over the weekend and I call it my ‘Red Lips Glam’.¬†GRWM stands for Get Ready With Me, these videos are very popular on YouTube and I love creating them.¬†This look was¬†created using three shadows from the the Morphe 35O palette. This palette is very versatile and a lot of different looks can be created using it. This is a simple look that does not have too much shadows used and is easily to blend.¬†Do you have it as yet?

On the day that I filmed I also took some beautiful pictures outside of my make-up look. Below I have added some pictures showing you how it looks in natural day light.

Enjoy the video…

MORPHE 35O PALETTE

Hi Beautiful,

A while back I received the 35O – 35 COLOR NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE! This is a great must-have; natural to glam palette that every glamour girl¬†should have! Morphe palettes are usually¬†always sold out so if you get the chance to get your hands on anyone¬†GRAB IT¬†(you won’t be sorry).¬†The finish¬†of the shades run from matte to shimmer and then natural to orange burnt to browns. Gorgeous shades, appropriate for all skin tones. Adding to that the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are very vibrant and the blend-ability is also easy. So you can use these shades to create a fancy cut crease or even a simple statement daytime look.¬†This one is my first Morphe palette and I am looking forward to my next purchase from them.

You can purchase this palette as well as other online at Morphe products from MorpheBrushes located in America and Boozyshop located in the Netherlands.

Dimensions of Palette:

Length:9″
Width: 6 1/2″
Thickness: 1/2″

Number of Pans: 35
Pan Size: 1″

Follow my Instagram @SJs_Obsessions for make-up looks that I will share of looks created using Morphe 35O Palette!

HOW I COVER MY ACNE SCARRING| 2015

Hi Loves,

I had to get this video filmed and shared before this year came to an end. My BIGGEST INSECURITY – MY ACNE SCARS.¬†For the longest of time I have been dealing with having acne then it scarring and becoming dark marks/hyper-pigmentation. It happens because I squeeze or pick at them and¬†even due to the fact that I do not treat them well at times. There is a lot of times when my skin has been picture perfect (hasn’t been so recently) and then times when it gets even worst then how it is now.

In my new video I share with you how I cover my acne scars with make-up. Of course I do not wear make-up every day for long periods every time, but I do when I go around people I do not know, to school and work. When I am finished with a long day the first thing I want to do is to take of the make-up once I am home! [Relief] Also I usually keep one or two days of the week to not wear make-up and just let my face breathe.

Enjoy the video…

Weekly Obsessions | Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder

Hi Loves!

It is time that I share with you this weeks ‘Weekly Wednesday Obsession’. This week my featured obsession is the Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder (See pictures below).

IMG_8710IMG_8715IMG_8717

[INFORMATION FROM THE WEBSITE]

“Buttercup is completely flash-friendly, with just one shade for all skin tones and skin types. It can be used to highlight, set your concealer or can be applied liberally over the entire face.¬† It does not give off the white cast or turn ashy in bright lighting or photos, as with other setting powders. Buttercup Powder absorbs oil, reduces shine and keeps your face matte for hours. It is finely milled so it glides onto the skin, blends easily and softens¬†the appearance of fine lines and pores, without looking caked on.”

GRWM | Simple Summer Look

Since I am on vacation now I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my Summer go to make-up look. One of the most important things to use in the summer before applying makeup is primer. However, sometimes that great primer itself doesn’t always help with the heat on the islands.

In this new video I share with you my Simple Summer Make-Up Look. This look is simple but the combination of the bright lipstick, Heroine (Matte) from Mac Cosmetics it makes it extremely summer appropriate.

 

 

Products Used:

Maybelline Fit Me (Matte + Poreless) – 355 Coconut

Jordana Forever Flawless – 108 Warm Amber

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer *(can’t see the shade number)

Sulfoderm Loose Powder

Milani Baked Powder Blush – 07 Fantastico Mauve

Mac Cosmetics Lipstick – Heroine (Matte)

INGLOT Curaçao

This is a post that was supposed¬†to be posted about two weeks ago, Opess….

Let’s just get right to it! The day after arriving on¬†Cura√ßao I went out with my Mother & Aunt to do some shopping. My favourite items to shop for out of the Netherlands are always¬†beauty and cosmetics. I feel that the selection we have back in the Netherlands is not always as large. & I love trying out new brands!

About three years ago¬†I visited the¬†INGLOT branch in Cura√ßao and bought a white eyeliner. I was happy with the purchase but since then I did not try anything from them. This time I wanted to try and get my hands on some dramatic and sultry eyelashes. But that did not happen because they were all out of the ones that I wanted ūüôĀ But I thought *hmmmm, why not try something different*.

Soooooo I then found these beautiful blue feather lashes and said¬†“YES, I need those!”

The lady that owns the shop was so nice and showed me this amazing Mattifying Pressed Powder. This Powder is amazing & everyone who wears makeup while in sunny/hot places needs this. This powder should be used on top of your make-up. It helps to block out all the oils that forms during the day.

I also got his new pigment eye shadow that has a beautiful undertone. I did some research and found out that it is perspiration resistant, contains vitamin E, and is talc-free. Adding to that most AMC pigments are mostly having a matte base combined with glitter or shimmer. This pure pigment eye shadow has a stunning pink and orange duo undertone.
