An international make-up and beauty blog with Belgian roots and a Swiss twist

The No Words Tag

The hubby and I have friends from Belgium visiting for a couple days and since I don’t have much time to blog at the moment I figured I’d post something fun and lighthearted today. The other week I spotted the No Words Tag on and I immediately wanted to do it myself, so here we go!

Two Dashes of Glam | Halloween 2016

Still looking for Halloween make-up inspiration? Do not fear because the Two Dashes of Glam team is here with two gruesome Halloween looks!

My Stitched Up Lips


This year I went full torturing psycho killer on myself with a stitched up mouth look. And rather than drawing on the stitches I decided to use actual needle and thread to sew my lips together. If you’re gonna get psycho you’d better go all out, right*?
* my apologies to the mail man who had to see me like this

☠ Makeup Geek Plumeriareview Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof Make A Wish swatch

☠ Sephora Make A Wish ☠

First I used my Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria and my Sephora Contour Eye Pencil in Make A Wish to draw a scar on the right side of my mouth and create the illusion of slashed open skin.


☠ DUO Eyelash Adhesive (+ DIY torture tools) ☠

Then I cut a few pieces of black thread and glued those over my lips using DUO eyelash glue. I simply put some dots of glue around my lips and gently placed the ends of the thread in the glue.

Next I mixed some red and brown eyeshadow from my Morphe 35OM Matte Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette and used my MAC 219 Pencil Brush to dot the color on the ends of the thread to create the illusion of puncture holes.


Et voilà, stitched up lips, taking the phrase “shut your mouth” to a whole new level!

Natasja’s The Joker

So what is my blogging buddy Natasja doing for Halloween this year? Get ready for this: she is going to be a gender bending Joker. And I have feeling it will look as awesome and original as it sounds! Quickly hop over to Eyes Painted Black to check out the look!

New in | Skeleton Finger Bracelet

Hallow’s Eve is just around the corner and later this week I’m showing you my Halloween look for this year, but I thought I’d already get you in the mood for the scariest night of the year with a peek at my new skeleton finger bracelet from Born Pretty**. Take a look!


Is this the awesomest bracelet ever or what?! I absolutely love love loooove it. The skeleton finger design is rrreally cool and it makes the perfect Halloween accessory.


Buuuut since I’m a statement jewelry kinda girl and since I have a bit of rock ‘n roll blood in me I won’t just be wearing my new bracelet during the Halloween season. No siree, I plan on rocking this baby all year round! *horns in the sky*


Are you into statement jewelry? Is this skeleton finger bracelet something you’d wear?

Review | L’Occitane Arlésienne Eau De Toilette

L’Arlésienne est de retour! Later this month L’Occitane is launching a brand new version of the first Arlésienne eau de toilette and today I’m giving you a little sneak preview of what you can expect. Take a look!


I really love the pale pink hue of the fragrance, the edgy font on the label and the beautiful flower relief on the bottom of the bottle. Simply stunning.


And the scent? Just like last year’s version the new L’Occitane Arlésienne eau de toilette is heavily dominated by floral accords. It starts with a subtle top note of bergamot, saffron, galbanum and hawthorn, followed by a strong heart of rose and violet and a warm base of white musk, amber, sandalwood and ambrox.


The result? Another classic, warm and über feminine scent that feels very much like the very first L’Occitane Arlésienne eau de toilette. Or Caudalie Rose de Vigne for that matter. I remain a fan!


The L’Occitane Arlésienne eau de toilette (79 CHF) will be available later this month.

Did you try last year’s Arlésienne fragrance? What do you think of this new version?
