I've never been a huge fan of the colour yellow: I don't know why but I used to think only crazy people wore yellow. Maybe it was because the insane asylum closer to my hometown was yellow and people called it ''the yellow house''.

I always felt like yellow clothing did absolutely nothing for me: it didn't flatter my skin tone and it didn't make my hair colour or eye colour pop. And I know a lot of people think like I do (or did).

Recently though, we've seen yellow in pretty much every S/S fashion show and also on our favourite street style stars: they have proved that, although this is a very tricky colour to wear, you can pull it off, if you know how to style it correctly.

Today, I'll show you 8 ways you can wear yellow and make it look flattering.

Last month, I was browsing through the Maquilallia's website and came across this primer from The Ordinary . I had seen a few fellow bloggers talk about this brand so I decided to give it a try. I paid 4,90€ for a 30ml squeeze tube. It comes in very pretty packaging if I do say so myself. I love minimal packaging so this was just up my alley.

This was actually the second primer I've ever bought. The first one was a Catrice primer that didn't do anything for my  makeup, it only made it last even less than it usually does.  Alongside being a primer, this product is also a moisturiser, so you can use it at the end of your skincare routine.

My experience 

I use the tiniest amount of this primer (about a pea-size amount) and that is enough product to cover my entire face. Upon application, it feels super smooth and the texture is much different than the catrice primer I talked about above. It's like a instant hydration boost! After a few seconds on the skin, the product's blurring effect is quite visible. It's like real-life Photoshop. My foundation applies on perfectly on top of it.

After using it for the past month, I can say this primer does make my makeup last a lot longer than usual. Normally, by the middle of the day, my makeup is already coming of in the areas around my nose and chin, but with this primer, my makeup looks as great by the end of the day as it does in the morning. 

If you are like me and have a very oily T zone or you're just looking for a good primer, I couldn't recommend this product enough!It does it's job impeccably and it is extremely cheap. 

Let me know if you've ever tried this primer and what your experience with it was.


I've decided to start a new series here on The European Closet where I'll choose an item of clothing and will show you 5 different ways you can wear it in 5 occasions: work, school, causal day, formal event and night out with friends. 

Today, I chose a white shirt: a basic piece everyone should have in their wardrobe . However, I chose a ruffled shirt form Next. Ruffles are a big trend this year, so mixing them with a clothing basic such as a white shirt will give a little twist to your outfit, 

Here are 5 ways you can wear this shirt. 

Causal Day

Formal Event 

Night Out



If there is a specific item you'd like me to style next, tell me in the comments!
