USA beauty wish list

USA beauty wish list

MAC mono eyeshadow I’m so excited because elven days from now I’ll be hopping on a plane to the USA (technically first to Sweden for a layer over). Seeing all my boyfriends family and friends again will be amazing, but I’m looking forward to doing some shopping as well! A lot of brands I love or want to try out are sold in the USA and because of the exchange rate between the dollar and the euro shopping will be extra fun for me! Let me share with you my USA beauty wish list.

My favorite Youtube Make-up Guru’s

My favorite Youtube Make-up Guru’s

Itsjudytime

One of my favorite things to do when I’ve got some free time is watching make-up video’s on Youtube. Especially when I’m abroad Youtube becomes my daily dose of relaxation. Of course you can live without a TV, but sometimes watching a little bit of TV helps to calm down after a stressful day. I’ve also learned a of lot new make-up tips and trucs from watching make-up (and fashion/cooking/lifestyle/you name it) videos on Youtube and some guru’s really turn their tutorials into short movies. I think filming make-up tutorials/reviews/first impressions would be a great attribution to my blog, so ones my work in the fashion industry becomes a little less hectic I’ll get started on that.

Review – The Face Shop Face It Styling Auto Gel Liner

Review – The Face Shop Face It Styling Auto Gel Liner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Upon arrival in Seoul I discovered that I had left my Sephora waterproof contour eye pencil at home! In blind panic I googled for a Sephora in South Korea, not even just Seoul…, and had to face the fact (geddit) that they don’t sell here. While out and about I randomly walked into one of the many beauty stores that can be found in the South Korean capital. After swatching a few pencils I picked out the ‘FACE it STYLING auto GEL LINER’ in 02 Edge Brown for 7700 Won (5 euro/6,6 dollar) from the Face Shop. Now the name might sound a bit confusing as the product I’m talking about is a pencil liner and not a jar filled with gel liner. Every new product I buy, I put to the test; which this time included humid Asian weather.

Japan beauty – What’s different?

Japan beauty – What’s different?

japangeishakopie A while ago I got an e-mail from Elise in which she asked if she could do Freelancing work for BeautyLab. Elise (20) is a journalism student and was giving the assignment to work for an (online) magazine or newspaper for the time span of three months. I’m always open to such requests and so we decided to meet up over a cup of tea in order to brainstorm about possible article subjects. We decided that Elie will post an article every two weeks the coming months. Together we picked out the subjects that will be discussed. They will be related to traveling, something Elise loves to do. [This is a re-post from my old blog. I put it up because I’m very proud of this article and I want to do an ‘Korea’ edition in the near future.]
