Okay, so in the past few days, it’s gotten very cold, and that makes me both happy and sad. Autumn is my favourite season because I think it’s the prettiest of the seasons and I love the temperature in general. And because my schedule leaves some space for posh breakfasts, I decided to create one […]
It has only been a few months since I started doing weekly posts and started really working on my blog posts, and I think the hours I started spending taking pictures, writing and creating really paid off – both seen in my stats and the quality of the blog posts themselves. Now, as you can imagine, when you start being so focused on something that’s important to you, every single detail will catch your eye and every single picture needs to be perfect.
Now, as you can imagine, when you start being so focused on something that’s important to you, every single detail will catch your eye and every single picture needs to be perfect. And that is exactly why I made progress; because I looked for inspiration, created the pictures and posts myself, started being more original and put my hours into everything that concerns writing a blog.
Now, something that I do pretty often and absolutely love to do, is creating flat lays. And even though I have to be honest in saying I am pretty proud of most of them, I was surprised when people started messaging me and started to ask me in person: how I made my flat lays.
And because I had been thinking about doing a blog post in this direction anyway, this was the perfect opportunity for me to explain how to make creative, beautiful and aesthetically pleasing flat lays yourself. 🙂 And that’s exactly what I’m going to do…
So, for some people, school has started again, and for those of you who are sitting at their desks having a break from homework and studying; I hope this is just the break you need. For me, with the return of school – homework, tests and being in public 24/7 – the makeup-free days have ended. Not because I’m self-conscious without makeup, but because I like to have that little extra in my routine.
Maybe there are some freshmen amongst you, who want to know how to do their makeup for their first day. Maybe you’re a senior who’s planning on doing a little more effort look-wise this year. Maybe you’re an elder lady who wants to know what makeup nowadays looks like. Whoever you are, wherever you are and for whatever reason you’re reading this, I’m going to break down the basics of makeup, step-by-step.
But, because doing your own makeup and taking pictures of yourself all at the same time is a little harder than you’d think, my lovely friend Isabel Bannenberg offered to help – well, I texted her saying I needed to use her face for a blog post and forced her to come to my house. 🙂 And she gladly agreed, may I add.
So, without further ado: let’s get into this!
