My Amsterdam Make-up Haul!

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I was in Amsterdam last week. I stayed there for a week and I literally went make-up shopping everyday!

Everytime I visit Holland I make sure to visit a drugstore called ‘Etos’. They’ve got literally everything you could think of! Also does Etos have it’s own make-up line and their lipsticks are GORGEOUS! Since I’m a fan of nude/baby pink lipsticks, I made sure to buy a few.

MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette in Deep Medium

Ok so this concealer palette is by far the best purchase I’ve ever made! The two swatches on the left are correctors, they basically correct the skin tone of the dark circles under your eyes. The rest of the swatches are concealers. I used this palette a couple of times on my dark skinned clients and it really did wonders! It corrects the skin beautifully and corrects the imperfections!

I got it at the MAC Pro Store which we don’t have in Dubai 🙁 so this concealer palette is only available at the pro store’s. I really wish I bought all of them!!

Before applying concealer I always apply a corrector first. I always use the liquid corrector by MAC and I got myself a lighter shade since I lost my tan 🙁

The corrector is also amazing in covering pimples!

I was playing with the pigments at
MAC and I really liked this one! I never wear glitter on my eyes so I thought, there’s a first time for everything! I got the ‘Mixing Medium’ tube as well as a base for the glitter.




MAC Lashes in No. 36, No. 8 & No. 4

MAC lashes are my favorite lashes! You can reuse them for a very long time if you take care of them and clean them from time to time. I use mine for about 3 months! And I wear them on a daily basis. The bottom lashes (No. 4) are my favorite ones! They look very natural and by adding mascara you can create extra volume/thickness. The first one (No. 36) are really nice as well just a bit more dramatic then the No. 4. The lashes in the centre (No. 8) are new to me and I haven’t tried them yet, but they look nice too!

There’s a professional make-up shop in Amsterdam called ‘Backstage’. I love buying make-up accessories and tools there! It’s very affordable and the quality is amazing. The only eyebrow fix I like is from the brand ‘Make-up Studio’. It really holds the eyebrows all day long by using just a tiny bit. The two brushes I got are my favorite ones from the same brand. The sponge applicator from ‘Make-up Studio’ is the only one I like to use because it’s super easy to work with.


Ben Nye Banana Loose Powder #313

I bought the ‘Ben Nye banana powder’ the minute I saw it since It’s been impossible for me to find it here in Dubai. I got the powder as well at ‘Backstage’. I used it a couple of times now and so far I’m liking it. It feels super soft and silky on my skin and it doesn’t dry out the skin!
