Make-up look | Going a bit Barbie in a full pink make-up look

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Last Friday I hosted a dinner party for friends, and since I almost never do that – I like cooking for myself but cooking for friends or family makes me rrreally nervous – I came up with a clever diversion tactic. You know, just in case my friends wouldn’t be impressed with my cooking or my food would taste like crap*. I wanted to make sure that I had something to show off that I know I’m good at, and that’s make-up. And what grabs people’s attention more than a completely pink make-up look? So I switched into full Barbie mode and went for pink smokey eyes (hell yeah!), bright pink blush, coral pink lipstick and pink nails. And yes, I even added some pink to my outfit. Seriously, I don’t think it was possible to go any pinker. I know, it all sounds a little over the top, and it probably was, but you know me: I believe that you should do whatever you like with make-up, and sometimes it’s just fun to look like you rolled straight off a Mattel factory conveyer belt. Girls will be girls!
* on the menu were home-made lasagna and tiramisu

  1. How pretty! I think the pink suits your skintone very well.

    Btw. You could gave gone pinker, dye your hair pink. Like i do. Hahaha.

  2. Wat een gave look heb je gemaakt zeg! Ik houd van roze hihi :) Gelukkig beviel het eten ook goed! Ik vind het ook altijd een beetje eng om voor andere mensen dan mijn vriend te koken en dat terwijl ik gek ben op koken ;)

    • Sunny, believe it or not but I took that pic a couple days after the nightmare experience with that zit zapper! So you can imagine how much work and product went into it, making my skin look okay, lol :-)

  3. Very pretty! That lipstick looks seriously good on you. Some days you just have to wear pink, right? I wore pink on the eyes, cheeks and lips myself yesterday haha

  4. Lovely, lovely, lovely! Pink suits your beautiful eyes wonderfully!
    I bet your cooking was great, the menu sounds awesome, we do love italian food at home ;)
    I’m on a pink mood myself, lately and I do not find it over the top at all! it’s nice to change things up a little :)

  5. Als het mooi is aangebracht zoals bij jou vind ik roze zeker kunnen! :) Ik gebruik ook wel eens roze dus ;)
    Ik vind je lipkleur zo mooi. Zo jammer dat Love beam al uitverkocht was

  6. Je ziet er top uit, ik vind het roze nog vrij subtiel, waarschijnlijk was het minder succesvol geworden als je voor echt hardroze kleuren was gegaan;) Roze blijft mijn fave kleur, dus je kan het niet snel verkeerd doen.

  7. Ik houd van roze! Ik vind je look nog aan de subtiele kant…Mooi maar wat mij betreft kon de lipstick wat feller/roziger, ik heb nu het idee dat de lipstick koraalkleurig is. Het staat je goed!

  8. I love hosting dinner parties! But S does all the cooking – I just handle dessert :) We’re having a small get-together this weekend for S.’s birthday – gonna make pie!

  9. I always thought pink eyeshadow can look a bit silly but you’ve really pulled it off! The look is lovely, goes well with your brown eyes and hair, don’t you think? Dinner party, cooking for others just sounds like too much pressure! I’m only learning but hopefully in the near future I’ll be hosting my own. Nerves kicked in soon as I wrote that!

  10. Pretty girl!! Heerlijk zoet (zou ook niet mistaan op je werk ;-) ) .Barbie-pink staat je gorgeous!! En is het gelukt met het eten en kreeg je reacties over je look? Ik zou hier nog wel eens een how-to van willen zien…

  11. Love it! I am now officially obsessed with the idea of doing a pink smokey eye. Probably I will only achieve something that looks like I have conjunctivitis, but a rogue can dream, right? ;-)

  12. Your makeup looks great, I like all of the pinks :) How do you like the M.A.C. Huggable lipstick? I’ve been meaning to try them but all of the colors I wanted were sold out.

  13. Je nagels komen echt zo BOOOOOM uit de foto’s springen, maar ook je lippen vind ik gorgeous. Lovely kleur van MAC. Je ooglook? Fierce! Slim trouwens om het zo te combineren. xD Maar ik durf te wedden dat je foodies goddelijk hebben gesmaakt!

  14. Congrats on your successful dinner party! I love you in full Mattel pink mode! Fabulous! i meant to comment on your other post that I am so sorry to hear about your knee problems! What happened? Was it skiing or just one of those injuries that happens and aren’t that bad but then worsens over time? I hope your knee is feeling better!

  15. You look so good in pink, so feminine, so lovely. It’s a perfect make up for a brunette, it would have looked too tacky on a blonde, in my opinion.

I love your comments!
