Ravenclaw

Hello makeup-lovers and fellow spooks! :) 

Today I was browsing through the unedited, old pictures in my camera and found a look that I decided to do something about. I've wanted to do a series of looks inspired by the Hogwarts houses for a long time now - or a remake actually since I did such a thing about a year ago, when I was pretty inexperienced in the art of makeup. :) So, the look I found today would be very suitable for for the house of Ravenclaw. :)

If you want to find out which house you're in you should do this House Sorting Test which is time consuming but fun. :) I've done it a several times but I always get the same answer; GRYFFINDOR!
I like Gryffindor so that's okay with me.



The utterly pretty golden bronze color I've used at the outer corner and on my waterline is Glamorous by Makeup Geek.


I miss my septum piercing sooo much! :( For those of you who don't know I had to take it away because it got skew and no matter how much love I showed it it just wouldn't straighten up. The good thing about it is that I can redo it for free (my piercing studio is amazing!) and I have about two weeks left on the healing time. Yay! :D


This eye makeup is pretty combined with a glowing red lip and cute rosy blush on the cheeks. :)

Just for fun I'm going to show you the Ravenclaw look I did last year. ;) 


I sure have progressed a lot since then both in makeup- and photography skills. :)

Last but not least, I have a question for you guys: What is, in your opinion, the most important thing about makeup for school? 

It would be interesting to hear your thoughts on this. :) As you might guess, I'm planning on doing a/a couple of school makeup looks. 

Thank you so much for reading and hope to see you again soon! :)

  1. For me personally, I like school/uni looks that are unique but not in your face. At my uni practically everyone wears winged eyeliner, and the emphasis is more on big lashes or bright lips or nothing at all. I want something that's different, but not so much it looks tacky. Not parrot green eyeshadow all over, but a bit of green liner smudged out, that kind of thing.
