One or two weeks ago, I had the chance to be invited to a gatstronomic dinner made by Ode which also included a beauty tip session from her friend Tamiim Beauty. Here’s everything you need to know ! 🙂
This was my very first gastronomic dinner so I was really excited ! Also ; pardon my very basic descriptions I’m no food blogger ! haha
The location was absolutely beautiful ! A hidden paradise in a very dirty neibourhood which was really surprising and awesome to discover !
The dinner in general was excellent ! Very fresh, not too much flavour information.
Extremely airy in texture and very tasteful !
Asparagus on a cloud of muslin and espelette pepper
This was probably my favourite ! The sauce was delicious, very tasteful and the asparagus were also very nice, quite crunchy and the espelette pepper brought some kick in it !
Cockroach with mustard sweet potato and turnip ginger
This cockroach was excellent as well ! Extremely tender with a note of mustard, crusty skin and the vegetables were perfect cooked !
Ending the dinner with the freshness of a pineapple cream was the right choice on a warm summer night !
THE BEAUTY TIPS SESSION
The beautiful and super talented Tamil from Tamil beauty came by to give us her best make up tips ! To be honest, I thought I had enough common knowledge when it comes to the make up do’s and don’ts BUT she proved me total wrong !
Here are a few things I learned :
Apparently the YSL touche éclat foundation is really good if you’re looking for a fresh, natural foundation and very luminous !
Setting sprays aren’t actually “hairspray for your face” as many people think ! It’s actually a face moisturising spray ! By spraying it on your face, you just hydrate it so it looks better ! But it doesn’t really make your make up last longer, it just makes it look fresher ! She doesn’t recommend it for oily skin !
You should apply your blush from the outside of your face to the inside ! So that more quantity of product will be at the top of your cheeks and the apples of you cheeks will have less product and will look more natural.
Apply a dark brown eye pencil as close to your upper lashes as you can : she said the human eyes like it when things are seperated, when it can see the start and end of element. Defining your eyes like this ill help.
She also said that make up brushes are more important than make up itself. Good brushes and bad make up can still work ! But good make up can be ruined if you use bad brushes !
Thanks again to Ode for having me, it was a really lovely evening and a delicious dinner ! And thanks to Géraldine, (the girl that Tamiim made up ! ) She is a fellow Belgian Blogger and came with me to the dinner ! ♥
