Guest Look: Natasja of Vanillaa

Hello everyone,

My name is Natasja, I’m 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands.
I have my own beauty blog: Vanillaa, you can find lots of ramblings about cosmetics there! I love blogging, I love writing about all the pretty products and I love creating nice looks.
I’m currently looking for a job as a professional makeup artist and/or beautician and my hobbies are listening to lots of music, watching movies, going shopping, work out and going out.
This look was inspired by that one day I got to freelance for MAC. I had to come up with an interesting, original look to wear that day and this is what I came up with. It’s a pretty warm look, which pops against my light skin tone and my blue-ish eyes.

I hope you enjoy it!

    Is Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base worth money? soo beautiful look btw! :)

    1. Natasja says

      It’ll do the job if you don’t have major oily eyelids. I like it, but I don’t love it. Urban Decay/Too Faced makes your eyeshadow pop more and prevents the lids from getting oily better IMHO.

    Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel what is thaat? lol

    1. Jenny$1983 says

      It has many of the same ingredients of eye makeup primers without the ludicrous price tag. I’ve seen quite a few people use it for this purpose.

    2. Natasja says

      I use it as a base under my foundation. It has a lot of silicones in it, which make your skin appear smoother and keeps your makeup on longer. It’s ‘officially’ used as a skin reliever/protector after shaving ‘down under’ ;-)

    Gorgeous look! Love the coppery hue! I’m so jealous of your eyes! Would love to have light eyes mine are almost black everyone else in my family has a yellowy/ green/ grey mixed colour eyes that seems to be unique to our family and I’m the only one that didn’t get them!! Hmm maybe I should nick my mums in her sleep…… LOL

    1. Natasja says
