In Love with Batik

15/04/2015

Hi everyone! Finally the weather is getting better here in the Netherlands. This week is gonna be around 17-20 degrees :D really happy and excited to just sitting on the balcony and enjoying the sun or window shopping without bring any heavy coat anymore. So this post, I would like to share my favorite outfit for sunny time and yes time for batik again. As you may know that Batik is the traditional pattern from Indonesia (my home country) or as Wikipedia said Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth. 

I just found this batik from silk last night when I cleaned up the closet at home. I got it like 6 years ago and now finally I am able to mix and match. It is actually a piece of cloth and I can make something from it. But I prefer to use it as scarf. The color so beautiful and it's perfect for any outfit for spring and summer.  Can't wait to get more of this Batik scarf from my mom! Then, I combine this lovely scarf with my black dress and crop top with a little bit of accessories. Never think this combinitation will be so stylish and chic. Feels like I am really ready for summer holiday!   Hope you like it guys:)



 



Spring/Summer Makeup

08/04/2015

Hi everyone!! I hope everybody is doing alright :). Today's post is about makeup review. I recently think to know more about makeup and start reading about makeup more and more. So, this time I want to show you my makeup routine for sping and summer time that gives me natural look and not too much makeup. There are my favorite products with adorable prices. Most of them you can find it in normal drugstores and some of them you have to go to special cosmetics stores like Douglas, Sephora, ICI Paris, etc. I hope you like it!


Make-up :
1. Maybelline Fit Me 225 Foundation & Bourjois Happy Light 52 Foundation
It's difficult for me to find really good color for my skin tone (yellow) and of course it has to be mousterize as well because my skin is kinda mix in the sping time, I mean I have really dry skin in my forehead, under the eyes, and chin. Also, my face is easily getting darker than my neck. So the mix of these two foundations are the answer. The result is not that light for my skin and mousterize as well, since both of the products are perfect for dry skin. Both of them are long lasting and I can use it for the wholeday without giving touch up.

2. NYX HD Concealer 06
I think this is the best concealer I ever try and it's really cheap. Nice texture and easily blend with my foundations. Also, it gives you fresh look. So far, it's quite long lasting like about 8 hoursI think and sometimes I only use this concealer without foundation because as I said it gives a fresh and bright look.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
So far so good. Nice product and give you natural look. I use it for almost 2 years now and still no complain about it. If you guys don't like to have thick powder that give you Barbie look, so this is the answer :)

4. MNY Maybelline London
Love this eyeshadow in small pack that I can bring anywhere and always stay in my small makeup kit. The color is really blend and soft. Again it's a long lasting product and really cheap too.

5. Loreal Superliner Gel Waterproof
The eyeliner gel from Loreal is quite okay and easy to use too. The trick is as long as you don't use it too much, it's gonna stay alright at the same place ;)

6. Sephora Waterproof Mascara
Because of the weather in the Netherlands is unpredictable, so I always use waterproof mascara to get ready for any weather situation. The sephora black waterproof mascara is my best friend. The brush is quite soft and it doens't give a thick mascara. Again your eyelashes looks natural.

7. Sephora Eye pencil Waterproof
I like to use the light eyeliner under my eyes. It gives fresh and bringht look and this one from Sephora is amazing. It stays long and you only need to apply one time.

8. Essence Eyebrow Designer 01 Black
I don't really like to make my eyebrow in shape especially with eyebrow pencil because I always feel like make me look like a Barbie or fake. But the one from essence is just give natural and soft color. I don't have to use it too much (because less is better) and looks good on me.

9. Bourjois Rose Mandarine Blush 39
I would say this blushon is awesome. Gives you natural and fresh look, and stay long too. I just apply it one time and it stays the whole day. Perfect!!!!

10. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Personne ne Rouge
Yes again from Bourjois. This lipstick is gorgeus. It's matte finish and really stay quite long. I love the color on my lips and I think I am gonna use it everytime. If you wanna have long lasting lipstic with adorable price, this is the answer for you all :)

Here are the pictures after applying the 10 steps above. Hope you like it :)

Easter Holiday

02/04/2015

Easter Holiday is here. I hope everyone is having a great time with friends and family. Today's post is about simple outfit for celebrating Easter with family. Even though I am not celebrating Easter but I like the idea of sitting and lughing together with family, enjoy the moment and having a great meal together. So, this time I wear stripe knit-wear because the weather is still unpredictable here, but then I combine it with denim jeans and vintage shoes to make it feels like spring :). The rolling-up trick for denim jeans is always bring the spring/summer look. And finally, I could wear and show my colorful and pretty scarft for spring season that I got it from my birthday on February. Happy holiday guys and enjoy the Easter moment with your favourite one!
