Welcome to my blog, or as I like to call it: my online playground. I’m addicted to lovely things and strongly believe that there’s always more than meets the eye. So put on your magic goggles and take this trip with me.

Make-up lessons by MAC

Let's talk about make-up, something I absolutely know nothing about. Very convenient when you're invited to a MAC Technique workshop with some of the biggest beauty addicts in the country. Typical me. Don't get me wrong: it's not that I haven't seen a BB cream from up front before. I even put on mascara and lip gloss on a daily basis. A girl's gotta look her best, n'est-ce pas? I also try to invest my money in quality products. I have a set of Chanel nail polish and lipstick, I always buy my clarifying powder from Clinique and I clean my skin with Shiseido. But as far as make-up techniques go, I'm a total beauty novice. Did you know that you cannot EVER put foundation around your eyes? The MAC team was pretty clear about that. The key word is, drum rolls please: CONCEALER.

Other valuable lessons I penned down:
- there are different kinds of brushes for a variety of effects (not just the two I own in my make-up bag).
- if you want a deeper coverage, put on your foundation with a synthetic fibre brush and make small, dabbing movements.
- you have to get at least two different colors - a light and a darker one - to blend into one killer look.

If you have other make-up related questions: shoot. Maybe this new expert can provide you with a satisfying answer ;-).
