My everyday makeup look // drugstore products
Are you like me? Do you like to wear makeup, but you do not want to send hours and hours? Well, then perhaps this post will help you. I'm explaining my everyday makeup routine, that only takes 10 minutes! Amazing, right? I personally don't think you need makeup everyday, but I think I look more awake when I've done my makeup. 

First, take a look at this video! While you are there, click the subscribe button. 

So, I start with concealer. Just under my eyes and in the places where I need a slightly better coverage. For this I use the Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 005 Natural Light.

After this I take the Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Powder & Makeup in the shade 20 Nude Beige. It is a kind of powder foundation. It gives an average coverage, enough for a normal day at work or school. I have very dry skin, powder foundation isn't the best option for me. I admit that this product can make your skin dry.

Now for my eyes. I use here the Catrice The Essential Collection Eyeschadow Nude Palette. It was the first time I used it.  I'm pretty satisfied. Only the shadow does not sit on your brush that well. That is unfortunate. I use a light color on my eyelid and use the contour color for more depth in the. For mascara I use the Essence Get Big Lashes.

For my eyebrows, I stand by the Catrice Eyebrow Set. I find it a very useful product, especially if you are not the best at eyebrows. Though, I'd also like to try the eyebrow set of Rimmel.

Time for contour! The product I use is Catrice Prime & Fine Contouring Palette in 010 Ashy Radiance. It consists of a light contour color and a highlight. The highlighter I use after the bronzer.

Bronzer! I had a bronzer in matt. But last week in the shop, I picked up the Bourjois Maxi Bronzer Delight Fair / Medium Skin. And I fell in love with the color and sparkles. Also perfect for the summer, I would say. When I opened the box at home, I just fell more in love, because this bronzer smells super delicious!

Finally, I take the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipgloss in 03 color Girl Of Today. I bought this in two different colors. The other color I bought is too light for me. This color is okay, though I'm not really convinced of the applicator. It is very difficult to get it on your lips and wipes off easily. If I have to choose, I would rather go for a matte lipstick by Essence.

Christmassy makeup look
Just a little while and Christmas is here! And who thinks of Christmas, thinks of a red lip! I have to admit, I'm not the best in red lips. But I tried! So bare with me. 

Today I told one of my friends I was going to do a makeup look and she came with the idea to film it. So you can all so how I did it! If this actually worked, you should find a video in this blogpost. If not, then you know I crashed and burned. 

This are the products that I used to create this look. All drugstore and easy to find! 

I started with the foundation. You can also start with the eyes, but this is just the order in which I generally applicably my makeup. It is a thick layer, but I also wished it was high coverage. Then I filled in my eyebrows. I do this every day, even if I do not wear any other makeup. This is the base of the makeup.

Then my eyes! Here I started with an eyeshadow base so the eyeshadows would stay a whole night. First I made a thin layer with the 24hrs Color Tattoo in the color On and on bronze. This is of course optional, but I think it is always very nice underneath an other eyeshadow. I blended a dark brown color in the crease of my eye. It's darker than I would normally apply it, but hey it's Christmas! And last I applied good glitter. Then, a few coats of mascara and READY! (You can also apply false eyelashes, but I did not.)

Okay, now to contour, bronzer, blush and highlighter. Here I can not give many tips. Moreover, I have no idea what I'm doing. I do what I feel is right.
The final touch! Red lipstick. Now, here I am not happy, especially with the edges! But practice makes perfect right? Hopefully by Christmas I got! Do not forget to do the edges first with a pencil, this ensures that you do not wipe out lipstick.

Goodbye and good luck!

Hi there, It's been a long time.
Hello, all my Wobbles! 
I'm so sorry, it's been a long time. At the moment I'm so busy with school. And when I blog, it's mostly on my Dutch Blog. But here I am, with a blogpost! 

Last weekend I went to the sea again and had a lovely, relaxing weekend with my mum and dog. I didn't take many pictures, which I normally do. But I've taken some. The beach I go to is De Haan, Belgium. 

Every evening we went for a stroll on the beach. The sunset was so beautiful, each time again. 

The little beachhouses were already in place for the summer! Now I'm really getting the summer feeling. 

This is the view from the bridge I have to cross before I reach the sea. It's a golf course. 

And this is me with my dog. Searching for treasures! 

I also finished Girl Online On Tour. I only needed two day. I read it outside in the sun. It was 22°C outside, so real spring weather. I absolutely loved the book! I'm kinda hoping there will be a third one! So Zoe, if you are every reading this, please if you're up to it make a next one. I want to know how Penny and Noah end. If they really end up together. 

Well, I'm sorry this is so short. But, I'm currently rocking out on The Vamps. ;)  

Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite, I see you in the sunlight! 
Well, I'm first going to watch Homeland, because it's the first part of the final! Aaaah! 
(And seriously, if Quinn really dies, I'm gonna go crazy! He's my favorite character!)

Dutch Blog?
Say whaaaat?! 
Yes, indeed. I started a new blog. This time in Dutch, my own language. 

I don't know how much of you also understand Dutch, but I guess it's not a very large number. But still I felt like I needed to tell you about my blog. It's name is Buzzwords, yea still an English name. The idea is quite the same as this blog, mainly beauty, fashion and lifestyle. But like I said before, in Dutch. 

I know it won't matter that much to you, because you probably won't understand a word of what is said on the blog. But still it would mean a lot if you just took a quick look. Maybe let me know how you like the template and layout? 

Maybe you are wondering what will happen to Collywobbles. No fear, it's still going to exist. Even tough I do have the feeling I will write more on my Dutch blog. English isn't my first language, causing that I make a lot of grammar and vocabulary mistakes. And I hate that. I can speak English fine, but maybe it's because of my dyslexia that the writing part isn't that great. 

Here is the link of the blog:

So, that is all I wanted to tell you actually. 
Have a nice evening (or morning if you don't live in Europe).
