Bring on the Romance! Date Makeup

With Valentine's Day just around the corner (as much as I dislike this commercialized holiday) I thought I'd come up with a soft and wearable look perfect for a date, or maybe just a night out with friends. You should never change who you are to impress a guy (or a girl), and for me personally, that means keeping my makeup simple and enhancing my natural features. I don't want to look like Angelina Jolie or Lady Gaga, I just want to look like a more "beautified" version of myself.

The black and white picture is actually a screen shot taken from my video while I was editing. I love how it turned out! I love black and white photography for portraits.

Watch my tutorial for all the steps how to achieve this look.

    Ich finde, dass bei diesem Look deine Augenbrauen besonders schön nachgezeichnet sind. Wenn du eine andere Technik verwendet hast oder sie nur etwas dicker/länger nachgezeichnet hast - es sieht auf jeden Fall viel besser aus! :)

    Hey !
    I'm a French girl who comments your blog for the first time even I've followed you for a long time. You inspire me. I'm on a diet and your weight loss is a model for me.

  8. Hi Julia, could you do a poll for us to choose a celebrity inspired look? I loveeeeed when you did this!!!

  9. I agree with what you said. Especially when trying to impress a guy, you should emphasize your own beauty instead of trying to look like someone else.
