Read the exclusive interview with the ‘Beauty Chameleon’ now.

Fiv: You are very popular under the name @krystalclearmakeup on Instagram. Before we start would you introduce yourself really quick.

Absolutely! My name is Krystal and I am a stay at home mom of two boys and have been married to my husband for 5 years. I’ve lived in the same area my whole life and was raised in the country. I’ve always had a passion for being creative and am one to push the boundaries and take risks. I love and welcome change!

“push the boundaries and take risks”

Love and welcome change

Fiv: You as a ‘Beauty Chameleon’ would you tell us: what are your top 5 beauty essentials that you cannot travel without?

I can’t travel without my Dove Bar soap, it’s the only thing that doesn’t break me out. A good perfume, I’m currently loving the YSL Black Opium (it’s heaven in a bottle). A pair of black dress shoes, whether it’s plain black pumps or black strappy heels, they are a must! Long wearing Foundation, right now I’m completely hooked on the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation. It’s long wearing and has beautiful coverage. And last but not least, nude lipstick. I always have a nude lipstick in my purse!

Fiv: For all the people who are not as experienced as you, what are your styling-tips?

Take a risk and try new things, You won’t know what works for you until you try it out. I have made plenty of makeup/style mistakes over the last 10 years, but it’s those mistakes that helped me discover the styles I love and the techniques that work.

the way music & makeup work together

Fiv: Where do you got all you Make-Up looks from, who inspires you in your look?

A lot of looks come to my mind when I’m listening to music, as weird as that sounds! I spent a lot of my childhood watching music videos with Jennifer Lopez wearing all sorts of different makeup looks and have always felt inspired by the way music & makeup work together.

Fiv: You show yourself with and without Makeup on Instagram. What would you say: when do you feel most beautiful?

Good question! It honestly depends on the day and my mood. I have to be in the mood to wear makeup and feel inspired to do it, it doesn’t turn out right if I’m not and in those cases I feel better without it. I haven’t always been confident without makeup and now that I am, I like to embrace it.

Fiv: Mother, Wife and Instagram Star! How does a normal day in your life look like?

CHAOS! Lol! It’s absolute insanity and it’s a constant struggle to find balance. My boys are at an age where they are constantly busy and our house requires a lot of upkeep to keep things clean. I have felt it was all too much to manage at times and questioned my ability to do it all. However, I’m extremely fortunate to have a husband that supports and helps me any way he can and that had made a world of difference!

Discover me again

Fiv: Do your children know that their mother is popular on instagram? discover me again

They know that I do makeup for a living and that it’s mommy’s job, but I don’t think they quite grasp the scope of what it is I do. Owen (my oldest) loves being on camera and asks all the time if he can help with my makeup.

Fiv: When and how did you start your career? What inspired you to choose your profession?

I had been waitressing for 5 years when I had my first son (Owen) and became a full time stay at home mom. I was so immersed in being a hands on mom that I didn’t take any time for myself and became really lost in who I was. My husband asked what I was passionate about and what made me feel like me and I said “makeup”. My husband enrolled me into an online makeup artistry course the next day. I graduated after 6 weeks and started freelancing that summer. I freelanced for 2 years when I realized it wasn’t fulfilling my need for creativity and I needed more. So I started my Instagram. I would create looks while my boys napped or in the middle of the night and although very challenging at times, it helped me discover me again and I found my passion.
The rest is history.

Fiv: What has been your biggest success so far?

Raising my children. There have been many times I didn’t think I was doing a very good job or that I was dropping the ball and failing them as a mother. But then I’d have these moments where I would have a stranger tell me “you have really kind and well mannered boys” or they would say something so profound and smart that I would sit back and think to myself “Wow, my children are wonderful little people.” Sure they are crazy people most days, but when it’s all said and done, they’re kind, thoughtful, loving and smart and I couldn’t be more proud of the people they are becoming.

+ AD + Do you know?

Everything can change in an instant

Fiv: What are your plans/goals for your professional future? Any upcoming events?

I don’t have any upcoming events to attend that I know of but that could change in a split second. I think that’s the fun of this business, everything can change in an instant & it keeps you on your toes. My future plans/goals are to have more opportunities to collaborate with companies and create amazing products that I can pour my heart & creativity into. I am just finalizing my first collaboration with a well known cosmetic company and am so excited to share it, It’s unlike anything I’ve seen on the cosmetic market!

Fiv: You as an ‘Influencer’ and ‘Make-Up Artist’ meet a lot of interesting people e.g Ruby Rose. Would you tell us who of all the stars and influencers you met on events impressed you the most and why?

Out of everyone I have met this far, I’d say Alex Faction and Samantha Ravndahl stand out in my mind. I have been a huge fan of their work for years and so the moment we were at the same events, I knew I had to walk up and say hello! I was crazy nervous because let’s be honest, you never know how you’ll be met with. But both Alex and Sam were AH-MAZING! Alex was beaming of positive energy and kindness and Sam was so chill and down to earth. Both left a lasting impression on me and inspire me even more now.

Personal growth

Fiv: Has fashion and beauty been present in your childhood?

Absolutely! I use to take my mom’s old sewing scraps and make outfits for my barbies and continued making my own fashion well into high school (not my proudest fashion moments I must admit). I received my first mini lipsticks from my cousin when I was 7 and was immediately obsessed! I use to be the “go to girl” for makeup before high school dances or any special events.

.

Fiv: If you had to choose between burger or pizza what would you take?

Pizza! I love me a good piece of pizza.

Fiv: My last question is : What makes you happy?

Personal growth. I think it’s important to focus on self improvement and always strive to be the best possible you. Where I am right now in my life is a place I could have never imagined being. I have two happy children, a strong marriage, a place to call home and a successful career doing what I love. I literally couldn’t ask for more! Some people think that it’s luck that others have the lives they have, But it’s all just hard work. I have struggled with depression and anxiety and use to be a very negative person to be around. So in turn my life and the people I attracted were negative. I have spent the last 16 years working on myself daily and it’s paid off in a huge way! I will forever be a work in progress, But it’s not if you fall that matters, it’s how you pick yourself up. Looking at all I have accomplished thus far makes me really happy.

Thank you Krystal for the nice Interview. If you want to know more about Krystal:

Travel Tips Amsterdam: PINK! The new trend color of spring

Hello my dears, I hope you had nice Easter days! I spent mine with my family in Holland. Even though I’m not really a fan of the Netherlands, I let myself be persuaded to drive again. We lived in a small house near Zandvoort. Advantage? It was right on the sea and lay between dunes, so real holiday feeling + It is only half an hour away from Amsterdam. Disadvantage? It was icy cold and very windy, so you lost this summer feeling as soon as you left the house.

+ AD + Do you know?

Our trip started on Friday morning, when my step brothers collected me here in Cologne and we drove on towards Zandvoort. Once there, the whole patchwork family was waiting for us. Of course, then first a beach walk in icy temperatures was announced. Not necessarily my highlight of the trip, but apart from the temperature and the wind very nice. Saturday we spent our day in Amsterdam. The city is really beautiful and I have a little bit in love with the old houses with huge windows, but also here it was very cold and how could it be otherwise, windy. What I have to let the Dutch, but nowhere else does the pancake taste as good as there. Of course, we also enjoyed it directly in a ‘Pannkokenhus’. I do not know what the Dutch do differently, but somehow they manage to make the pancakes delicious and yet very different. Of course I could not take a little shopping. For such a day full of shopping, sightseeing and running around, the right outfit has to be found. I have for you one or the other Outfitalternative detained.

Black and White – Chic but still warm!

This outfit looks both chic and elite but is also very practical as it keeps you warm at the same time. The sweater by Zara is super warm and super comfortable. Due to its white color and a zipper on the back, it still looks very stylish. For this I have combined a black basic pants Reserved. Since there is a lot going on during a sightseeing / shopping tour, I exceptionally left the high heels at home and put on my Adidas Superstar glitter. The outfit is completed with my bag by Fashion Drug, which is not too big but still big enough so that I could take everything necessary. If that’s still too cold for you, you can also combine a white leather jacket on the sweater (pic 2).

New favorite purse ? #ootd

PINK! The new trend color of spring

This outfit is definitely not suitable for the chilblains among you, but you can combine it so great in the summer. It is especially suitable for city trips, as it does very little with very little. Soberly wired, it’s just a top, a leather jacket and a pair of jeans, but it looks like much more with the use of colors and accessories. Since it is so simple, this outfit is super comfortable and uncomplicated. I fell in love with the color of the top. The Pink is super trendy this summer and fits particularly well with brown hair. If you like the color, you can find more great pieces in this color at Zara. Just like this top. The jacket, which is definitely my favorite part this spring, you can buy at Zara. These pants are again from Reserved and the bag from Fashion Drug.

All Black Everything – Outfit Inspiration

As you have noticed by now, this bag is my absolute favorite. It simply has the perfect shape and size to take with you every day. Even with this outfit she manages to upgrade the whole look. The t-shirt is also one of my new achievements from my favorite new online store, Fashion Drug, which is also the bag. It is super comfortable and looks great by the cut and the print just by itself. In addition a black pants with cracks by Zara and your outfit is perfect. Since the temperatures are just a little too fresh for such an outfit, I recommend you to the Edgy look a leather jacket or a cool torn denim jacket. So you complete this look perfectly and have simply created a cool outfit.

Perfect waves for a perfect outfit

As a last tip, I’ll show you something from the field of beauty, with which you can easily spice up your look. The Perfect Beachwaves, as seen from the Victoria’s Secret catwalks. Who does not dream of it? It is so easy to get the perfect waves. The nuts and bolts here are the curling iron. it shouldnt be too thin or too thick and should already meet a certain quality. It is also important that you will not get the perfect beachwaves with a flat iron, a curling iron is definitely necessary.
When you have found your perfect curling iron, there is not much left. Just divide your hair into two parts (I always divide them from one ear to the other) and put the top half away. Then you spray your hair with heat protection spray. I use guardian angels from Schwarzkopf got2b. If your curling iron is preheated (in my hair 180 degrees) you take a ca 5cm thick strand and wrap it around your curling iron. After about 20-30 seconds you can let go and continue with the next one. You do all this with all your hair and make sure you all turn in the same direction. When you’re done, just spray your hair over the top with hairspray (extra volume) and set it up. If you want, you can also use a comb to go through your hair again. Your beachwaves are done. The whole thing looks like my own.

Happy Easter ? #ootd

Such a hairstyle enhances your outfit enormously and makes you look super elegant.
Sunday it was already back home and I was able to rest a little and relax the rest of Easter.
I hope you liked my blog this week and you were able to take some great new Outfitideas / Beauty Tips with you. Who wants to go to Amsterdam, I can only recommend a boat trip through the canals and definitely a Pannkokenhus. I still wish you a great week and a good start to the day! If you have suggestions / suggestions or ideas for a blog post, feel free to write me in the comments!
