Vintage portraits

Long time I ago I fell in love with vintage portraits, especially old black one white, what really got me was simplicity of that photos but in the same that unique beauty.
In my old family albums I found a lot of these photos, and I could spend hours, drinking tea and flip through albums.

I said to myself I must have that photos and finally we found time to do something like that in studio, but I did`t had time to post them. 

I was thinking to do flapper look or 50`s, but I chose something in between, little more accent on eyes but not so much as flapper look.

Today I will not write so much, I m leaving you with photos.

How I do my eyebrows-Step by step

Today here is a little different post. I like to do make up posts too, just they are not so easy for me sometimes, I still need to learn how to take photos for tutorials.

In this post I will show you how I do my eyebrows, it is really easy and quick tutorial. 

As you know every day I have classic 50`s pin up make up look which includes really defined eyebrows.

This eyebrow pencil I m using really long time and I m satisfied, but some weeks ago I saw MAC fluid line brow gel creme and it is on my list just to come back in Belgium. 

What I m using.

1. eyebrow brush
      2. thick angled brush
    3. thin angled brush
                      4. MAC Prolongwear concealer 
              5. Artdeco eyebrow pencil

Let`s get started.

Here are my natural eyebrows, they are far a way from perfect, I would like to have denser eyebrows.

STEP 1: Take your eyebrow brush and comb your eyebrow.

STEP 2: With eyebrow pencil I m making stroke at the bottom of my eyebrow, following the shape of eyebrow.

STEP 3: The same I m doing on the top of my eyebrow.

STEP 4: I m using thicker angled brush to blend all together.

STEP 5: I m taking concealer and thin angle brush and putting around my eyebrow. Concealer is going to make eyebrows look freshly done and defined.

STEP 6: Blend your concealer and you are done. Quickly and easy!

I hope you liked this quick tutorial, but I must say in live they look more nice and from normal distance :).

If you want some other make up tutorial or cosmetic post, just write me your wishes in comments.

Thank you.

Perfect Sunday


This Sunday supposed to be relaxing after crazy Saturday night party, but yes we are not used to be lazy and spend day in bed. By accident we found event that is happening near us. It was vintage car meeting in Brasschaat. We even didn't need minute to think to go or not. Hair and make up was done quickly, first clothes I found in wardrobe I dressed and we run from home.

I really like that quick decisions without planing because then you always have the best time. And we had it. I really enjoyed looking in all that beautiful cars, listening stories of owners and taking photos.

When event ended, on our way to car we found beautiful park full of flowers, and of course we couldn't resist to take some photos.

Yes perfect Sunday!

Hello sailor


This post I started to write in airplane to Bosnia. First flight was late then I jumped from one airplane to another, luggage I v got next day...One word disaster!

Ok, now to go back on nice things. This place you can see in behind is my favorite part of Antwerp called Eilandje (Island). When I m here I forget everything and enjoy in feeling that I m somewhere far away on vacation. It got its name because it was surrounded by flow and locks once, and now the Schelde river , docks and the old harbor. Inside of one modern building here on Eilandje is Mas museum (Museum on the stream) with a lot of interesting things to see, there you find restaurant with Michelin star. 
If you are in Antwerp you met visit this place!

When I bought this vintage sailor dress I had immediately this place for shooting in my head.
