Moodboard Monday

13 Oct

I’m a make up artist that works with emotions… It’s not all about technique.

So when I prepare myself for a photoshoot, I rather prefer to create a moodboard instead of a face chart….

That’s why I’m launching a new category on my blog…. Moodboard Monday!


Today’s mood: Airy, free, nature, openness, colourful, greatness

Crazy about my readers – The Antwerp Book Fair

11 Oct

2,5 weeks it has been… My baby is growing up :-)

‘Make Up’ is discovering the world, and I think it’s enjoying the wild ride!

By the way, have I told you that I have the greatest readers ever?

Sending me flowers, bottles of wine, cards, presents, and the CUTEST instagrams! I really adore these little moments you girls are sharing with me, where you are reading my book and applying the looks I explain. What more can I wish for!

Crazy about my readers <3


To enjoy more of your loyalty and enthusiasm, I’ll be present at the Antwerp Book Fair!

Crazy actually, if you think about it. My whole childhood and teenage years I went to this oversized book fair with my dad (call it a precious daughter/daddy moment), snuggling with books, discovering new names, intoxicated by the smell of paper, ink and cheap coffee. banner-boekenbeurspagina_8

And now, I’m sitting there, hopefully talking to lots of beauty lovers and signing all of your books!

So how does my agenda looks like?

On the 4th of november there will be an open interview at 8pm with yours truly about my book ‘Make Up’, beauty, and body image! Followed by an signing session ofcourse!

On the 8th of november, from 3 ’till 6pm,  it’s practical make up time baby! You can find me at the Lannoo’s, applying beauty products on your beautiful faces! So drop by for that cool shade of lipstick, or smoldering smokey eye! You’re more than welcome! Afterwards I’ll be signing your books again ;-)

See you all there!

And to get your fine asses over there, I’ve received 25 duo tickets for the Antwerp Book Fair to hand out to you! Check this link to find out how to win these tickets! Good luck!





You wanna buy my book? #readersdiscount

28 Sep

Hi my lovely readers,

What a week it was…. I have no words to describe the importance of the launch of my first book ‘Make Up’… I had 3 months to create my personal bible. Three months. A period filled with lots of ‘normal’ work, photoshooting trips and worrying about my dad (who was really ill, but is totally ok now). And in the meantime there was this book, that took form. I literally worked day and night to put my heart in it. Crazy times!

So it’s no surprise the launch of my book felt like giving birth and having a wedding at the same time.

And it turned out to be a fantastic night! My god!
I don’t even know where to start! So maybe these pictures can give you an idea….

(P.S.: Don’t forget to scroll down for a little surprise ;-))



Hey, and what do you think of my gorgeous dress of Curvies and accessories of Lily and the lady!

Nowwwwww, it’s present time!!!

If you use this link, you’ll receive a 15% reduction on the online purchase of my book Make Up! Holla to that, right!!

Kisses to everybody from a proud proud mom ;-)




Sabine x Lannoo = Beautybook!

30 Jun

Ok, dearest readers, my amazing followers, Portret zwartwit kopie

It is finally time to get the word out:

There will be a book. A beauty book.

A dream has come true and, oh my gosh, I’m getting more and more nervous thinking about the launch of this make-up bible. I’m hoping and praying that you will all cherish my writings… They’re so personal… No ghostwriting, no guest editors, nor copywriters. It is all done the Sabine-way! I’m giving you my opinions, beauty habits, my tips&tricks…

How crazy is the fact that my job and blog got me to this amazing point!? Talking about NEVER GIVING UP on your dreams, goals, fantasies and passions! Finally my stubborn and overly passionate character is paying off ;-)

I’m still a little bit amazed by all the confidence put in me by publisher Lannoo… I’ll never forget this…Love you long long time, guys…

Well babes, that’s it for now. But keep a close eye on my blog, so you don’t miss the details on the process and launch of the book!

To lift a little corner of the veil….. Some backstage pictures (with some of my BEAUTIFUL models!!)…







So what kind of bride do you want to be?

4 Jun

I have a thing for weddings.

When I was a little girl, the fantasy of meeting my Prince Charming and marrying him in a very Sisi way , made me twirl of excitement.

And euhm… It goes further than that…I think I know every episode of ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ by heart, and I even window show at Kleinfeld every other week.

In the midst of this crazy seasonal obsession I started pinteresting a bit and bumped into hundreds of beautiful bridal looks. My head started spinning… I couldn’t choose only one look for my imaginary wedding! I wanted at least two different styles… Or three…. Or, oh what the fuck, I wanted it all!

To keep myself sane, I ordered my favorite looks into three categories.

1. The Boho Bride

  • She has a chill vibe and ease to it.
  • Her make-up is personal and sunny, without a lot of colour. She makes use of earthy tones and little, subtle details.
  • She often takes  funny and flowery accessories to upgrade the hair.
  • Her hairdo is kinda loose, with natural curls or braids added

2. The Retro Bride

  • She is influenced by the vintage style of the 20’s, 40’s, 50’s or 60’s.
  • Her make-up is quite strong. Think red lips, fake lashes and eyeliner, or a heavy, rounded smokey eye.
  • This bride likes a more theatrical look with a strong wave in her hair. It is very important for this look to hire a hairdresser that is familiar with the techniques!

3. The Classic Bride

  • This girl goes for a classic, more mainstream wedding, with little moviestar influences.
  • To pimp this look you can go for a bigger bun or add a braid to it.
  • Make-up rule numéro uno: Never let make-up make you unrecognizable for the groom!

New chapters in life

28 May

Dearest readers, the loves I left behind for some time,

You must have noticed the big gap in my timeline on the blog.

Although I had a couple of very good reasons why I didn’t have the time to really concentrate on blogging, still I felt guilty for letting you down. I’m so sorry guys…

But I’m back! Back to overwhelm you with beauty inspiration and personal fait divers!

So what went on in my life these last couple of months?

A lot!

I’ve been working like crazy. Most of the time on set here in Belgium. But I also had the chance to take a trip to Chili with photographer Kris Desmedt, stylist Erik Vernieuwe, tv-maker Tom Waes and his fiancée Mieke. Where we were shooting for Het Nieuwsblad magazine.


Chili times

Chili times, good times

Chili times, good times

Chili times, female power times

Chili times, good times

Chili times, culinary times


Chili times, good times

Chili times, Andes times


Chili times

Chili times, backstage times


Chili times

Chili times, painful times


Chili times

Chili times, posing times


Chili times

Chili times, overwhelming times

Chili times

Chili times, Valparaiso times (sadly this city burned down two weeks after our visit)


Chili times

Chili times, Tom Waes times


Chili times

Chili times, selfie times


I know, it looks like we haven’t really been working during the trip…. It didn’t really feel like intens labour, and that’s the least I can say. If you click well with a bunch of people, every day is a beautiful day and nothing feels like working…. Thank you Het Nieuwsblad, for making this possible!

And talking about this magazine… have you noticed this foxy covergirl, two months ago?

Sabine goes covergirl

Yes babies, that’s me, talking about my curves and showing them off in the latest PrimaDonna Swimwear collection!

The reaction on the shoot was overwhelming… Some positive, some negative. But it got people talking about a realistic body image, and that’s what matters the most! The pictures were taken by friend and photographer Sam De Backer, and my beautiful make-up got created by Aurélie Van Hauter! <3

You wanna see how it went on backstage at the shoot?

Here we go….



And then there was this other big new chapter that opened…. My godchild got born!! Her name is Elise and she is the cutest, most beautiful little princess I have ever met. Loving her so much…

To top this post off, I’ve got for you a whole bunch of beauty (backstage) pictures of shoots I did since january!

All my love,

P.S.: I really am so happy to be back!


Make-up for Life

19 Dec


Every year, our national radio station, Studio Brussel, organizes ‘Music for Life': A week filled with charity events, warmth and care, music and love! Normally, the money they raise goes to one big organization. But this year Studio Brussel decided to leave the choice of volunteer organization up to us. Which makes it possible to support all these smaller, but equally deserving, causes.

Now, trooper Joy Anna Thielemans came up with the idea to have an ‘Antwerpen for Life‘-afternoon upcoming sunday! Boom!


During this afternoon, a group of friends will be offering their talent in exchange for your well-needed euros.

What will I be doing? I will be selling my make-uptime. Would you like beauty advice? Have you always been dreaming of a glamorous look, done by a professional? This is your chance! Every 30 minutes, I will be more than happy to welcome a new ‘costumer’!!! Maybe you can be one of them! Book your place here.

What organization will I be supporting? My extra support goes to Altijd Mooi‘, a concept of 4 ladies that embraces women in need of extra help to lift up their quality of life and looks during/after major illness. Because every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin!

Antwerpen. Wasbar. Sunday.

Be there, be beautiful and be aware! Let’s hand out warmth and euros!
