As a makeup artist I’m obviously crazy about makeup and love to try new things on my own face before applying it onto others. But I actually prefer not to wear anything, or very very little makeup on. The key to a pretty NATURAL face is a clean skin. One of my favourite cleansers is the mousse from Chanel Precision together with the cleansing lotion from the same line. Makes my face really smooth and with just a touch of mascara I’m done for the brazilian evenings.
I wish I could explain how increadibly beautiful this place really is but it’s impossible! Since we’re friends with the owner we got upgraded from a great room to an AMAZING room with a terrace. Below the terrace floats a river on which huge yachts passes by every few seconds… Around us there are several mountains, all covered in a beautiful bright green colour and if you follow the river you suddenly find yourself in between loads of gorgeous islands.
Today we’ve just chilled by the pool and in the afternoon we went speedboating among the islands and stopped for a while in a gorgeous bay for a swim. Right now the guys are starting up the fire to grill some fish. Me and myself are just sitting by the pool with a nice glass of wine enjoying life!
We left Rio six days ago and went camping on Ilha Grande (Rio’s biggest island). The camping was nice and located on beautiful Palmas beach. We slept in a sort of cabbana, a bit more fancy than a regular tent but still really basic. The island is crazy beautiful but sadly it rained 4 days out of 5 so we didn’t get to see it in its natural perfection. We did however have fun anyway, playing cards and hiking a lot!
Yesterday morning we left for Angra dos Reis and went to stay in a friends “pousada” (like a small hotel, very typical for Brazil). We knew it was gonna be nice but we could never imagine how amazing it is here! I’ll tell you more about it later, gonna take a dip in the gigant pool now (which by the way is located right outside our door..).

Today we spent the morning at the beach playing beach tennis and soaking up the sun. After some sushi at Ipanema Sushi I went back to the apartment for some rest while H went to play some footvolley with the guys. I think I’ll head down to Ipanema to watch the sunset in a while and after that we’ll probably have some dinner and hit the town. After all it is our last night here (for now…) and tomorrow we’ll continue our trip to Ilha Grande.
