Hey my party Pannies it’s Thursday meaning a new blog post and it’s almost weekend. What did you guys do this week? We (school) had some German exchange students coming over this week and we had to welcome them and plan all sorts of activities for this week. If school was like this everyday I think it would be so much more fun even though it’s also very exhausting. Well back to the point…
As you can see from the title this week it’s al about beauty any blogging. I wanted to blog this a long time ago because this event was held last month (Oct. 26 2013). I’m very sorry for posting it this late but I still hope you guys will like it and maybe I will see you at their second BBMC if I will go.
This was indeed their first beautybloggers masterclass ever held in the Netherlands and I was very happy that I made the decision to attend this event.
The entrance fee was €15,- p.p. but it was definitely worth it. BE Creative was a big part of this whole event. I personally knew BE but I did not had the chance to try anything yet but after seeing their line there were some products that interested me a lot. We also received a goodie bag which included 3 BE products, a lipstick, a mascara and a nail polish. I haven’t touched anything yet of the bag but after publishing this post I will definitely will try everything out.
It was a good organized event but I do have some feedback that they could look into. First of all as I said the location was quite easy to find it was just near Amsterdam Central Station/behind Starbucks. When arrived there was no one to pick you up or anything you just had to find the event place. There was a sign with ”events” but then you have people like me who always look over the stupid signs right…
When I finally was upstairs I had to hand in the ticket and got a badge, notebook and pen which is unique and a cool future that they thought about. Big plus Grazie!!
After getting those things you could get something to drink (coffee, tea, water) and the program started at 9:30 (which was wayyy tooooo early for me).
We learned how to find the perfect foundation for your skin type/colour. Well se apparently I’ve been doing it wrong all this time but my technique works as well for me personally.
To find the perfect foundation colour you just apply stripes on your chin and right away you can see what blends which your own skin colour. I never ever knew this I always apply it on the back of my hand but as many of you know your hands are darker than the face. For me I’ve never tried this technique yet because the hand thing does work for me. Off course my hands are darker than my face but I don’t tend to get sunburned/darker easy (which sucks because I do want that glow) and also if you’re shopping and you already applied makeup it just ruins your makeup right. I would definitely recommend this technique if you really have doubts about 2 colours or so but don’t put 10 different foundation colours on your chin, you can eyeball which one could suit you and keep it up 3/4 foundations.
Also BE Creative they have really pretty lipsticks which exists out of a wide range of colours and it’s affordable so if you see the line just go and check it out. For now I’m going to post some pictures below.

After the first activity we could have lunch at the ”DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel” which was awesome. There was a lot you could choose from, bread, shrimps, cold food, hot food, soup etc. After having the lunch we had some inspirational speeches of beauty coach ”Thijs Willekes” (he was so freaking tall, jelly with my 1.60m) and the two beautiful Dutch beauty bloggers ”Mascha of Beautygloss & Serena of Beautylab). All of them were very positive and they could talk for hours and hours and they weren’t nervous at all. I would pee my pants of I had to talk for so many people, to be honest presenting is not my strongest point, not at all. If you guys could meet me I’m probably the most awkward person you will meet EVER!! XD
Look at me right in that corner (right side, Hilma M. took the picture and I just had to be in it right, silly me…:P)
Serena Verbon with her silly faces, hihih
Then near the end of the event there were two more bloggers talking about their story. I did not knew these two before but we had Kirsten ”Jassies & Negin Mirsalehi”.
OMG how did I not knew Negin, she is soso prettyyy. She’s also a beauty, fashion, lifestyle blogger (english), I really do recommend you guys to follow her, she’s beautiful, inspirational and she and her boyfriend are so cute together. Follow her on instagram, twitter, fb just everything.
This is literally the only image I have of this activity but head over to Negin’s Mirsalehi blog, insta etc. she’s awesome and she does lots of outfit posts such as ootd, ootn.
Well there’s always an end to something so the event was done after this. We could go to the sky lounge with the most beautiful view of Amsterdam. But there’s also always a goodie bag to take home with these kinds of events, totally luvvinggg it. Check out the images below of the goodie bag and the beautiful view of Amsterdam!!
