WEEKLY FAVORITE: DipBrow Pomade Anastasia Beverly Hills

favorites5

This week’s favorite is an all timer.
I’ve used this for some years now and I keep going back and purchasing it.
I love to have them in a lot of shades, because for me, this is a multi product.
First of all, it’s genius for the brows. It lasts all day and have amazing pigmentation.
I use a small triangle brush for application – just dip it in the product and apply to your brows. Simple and easy.
I draw small hairstrokes on the brows and make sharp edges with it.

I’ve also been obsessed with using the different colors to draw small freckles with.
In the summertime, there’s nothing cuter than freckles. I, myself, get a few of them – but I like to mark them more visible with the dip brow pomade.

I’ll soon make a video for you where I show you how I do my brows and how I make freckles.

… eaten a lot of pasta! As you obviously can see.
After coming home from Italy, I’ve kept making my own pasta.
I don’t think I can ever go back to buying pasta, now that I know how to make it myself.
Besides that I’ve just relaxed with good food, friends and tried to enjoy the sun whenever it decided to show.

Next week I’m going a beach house in Tisvildeleje in the north of Denmark.
There’s a festival – so probably a lot of lovely pictures from the next couple of days.

Good Sunday,

PATTERNS, COSY NIGHTS & LIGHT MAKEUP

I knooow – not really friday. But forgot to post this Friday, so you’ll just get it now.

I’m obsessed with patterns. Not only my clothes – but also in my apartment.
Therefore I’m always on the look for new colors and patterns.
I’ve saved the shoes in my little basket for a while now and I think it’s time to buy them!
Other than that, the summer calls for light airbrushed skin and a proper waterproof mascara.

Right now I’m sitting in our beach house in the South of Denmark and it’s pouring outside.
Typical danish summer weather. I’m sitting under a blanket with a cup of nice, warm tea.
I’ve always adored tea – but been away from it for a while. I’ve fallen back in love – but I really need a proper kettle.
Right now I’m heating my water in a little casserole on the stove.

Hope for some more sun soon!
Have a great weekend,

Do you find it super difficult applying eyeshadow in different shades?
Where do I put the color? Which colors work together?
Questions like that, are super normalt to ask. Cause it isn’t always easy. And if you aren’t a makeup geek, but still want the look, nobody should take that away from you.

These eyeshadow palets will help you out!
It’s so simple – and yet so clever ..

HOW TO CHOSE EYE SHADOW COLORS

This palet is super cool. You got 6 different looks and on the back of the palet is a little drawing on where to apply the different colors. In the 6 different looks, there’s 3 different colors in each.
A base color for the whole eye, a shining color for debt and a darker color for definition.
It’s really super easy and the palette has some beautiful colors.

Mixology Eyeshadow Palette, Sephora, 250 DKK HERE

HOW TO APPLY THE EYESHADOW

I haven’t seen anything like these before. It can’t get simpler than that!
You can get them in so many different colors, depending on which look you like.
All you gotta do is just swipe the little applying sponge that comes with the eyeshadow kit, and apply it in one motion over your eyelid. Super easy. Now you’ve gotten the base on your eyelid and the darker color in the crease of your eye.
So so simple and so genius!

They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender Beyond Easy, Benefit, 160 DKK HERE

A lot of you have asked me about more tutorials where I show you how to apply eyeshadow and make cool looks.
I’m working on it, so I’ll be posting a lot of videos in the future.

Hydration in The Sun

mist1 mist2 mist3mist6 Photos by Maria Jernov / mariajernov.com

So, as you know I’m in Italy. Which means the weather is hot. HOT.
As you’ve probably noticed earlier on the blog, I’m really into everything hydrating. And you should too!
All year around, hydration is super important. I see myself as an addict.
I can’t wait more than 1 minut after a shower, before I put on serum, creams and mists. Not only on my face, but also on my body.
I simply feel naked without. Which is kind of stupid. Because I am naked with or without.

But something that will never leave my beauty bag, hand purse or whatever, when I travel, is a mist. A mist.
It doesn’t sound of much. But it’s everything.
I always take it with me on the airplane, in the car or to the pool and beach.
Sometimes I even put it in my fridge over night, to take with me in the morning. It has such a cooling, soothing and refreshing effect on your skin. It really refreshes and hydrates right away.

After using it for a long period of time, I can really feel and see the difference.
My skin is softer, looks younger, feels more even and of course, more hydrated.

I’ve been totally obsessed with the Nano Spray from M2, which is absolutely groundbreaking.

Hyaluron & Collagen Facial Nano Spray, M2 Beauté, 750 DKK HERE

The mist revitalizes as well as provides firmer, smoother skin. The high molecular weight hyaluronic acid captures and locks moisture in the skin as well as straightens the cellular bonds.
I can really see and feel a difference.

It’s my best friend here on vacation.

BEAUTY NEWS: Dior Addict Laquer Sticks

Hi guys,

Sorry for the missing content on the blog.
As I told you I’m on holiday in Tuscany – and right now I’m up in the mountains with no signal or wifi.
It has been killing me the last couple of days! But I’ve been filming a lot of good stuff for you, so as soon as I’ve got a steady wifi, I’m back online! Until then, I’ve wanted to share with you some of my favorite lipsticks at the moment.

The Dior Addict Laquer Sticks 

They’re so good and I like to use them different ways.
They’re super pigmented, which gives you a perfect covered color – but I also love to just dap a bit on the lips for a tint or pop of color. They’re good either way.

In the video I do a swatch on the whole range, so you can find your favorite.

How To Get Tanned Legs in Less Than 5 min

Hi guys,

Many of you have asked me how I keep my legs super tanned and sunkissed.
As many of you know I’m a big fan of self tanning. I’ve always used it a lot – and therefore knows a lot!
But enough about that – I promise you that this tanning queen will make you the ultimative self tanning guide asap.

So, if you’re not a big fan of self tan, but still want nice and tanned legs, this is for you.
These products are like a BB creme or foundation for your skin. They make a beautiful filter and sun kissed color.
I’ve become super addicted to these products. You can either use it as it is or mix some of it with your body lotion.
Just apply on your legs, make sure to let it dry in and wash your hands straight after!
The products are somewhat waterproof, but you have to make sure that the product has dried into your skin, before biking through water and jumping in the rain.

PICTURE No 1
No tan on my legs. They’re bare, shaved and naked.

PICTURE No 2
Left leg has Body Blur from Vita Liberata in the color Dark Moccha on. The right leg is wearing nothing.

PICTURE No 3
Now I’ve applied Bronzing Body BB Creme from The Body Shop on my right leg.
It’s difficult to compare the two colors to each other because of the lightening. But the one from The Body Shop is much more light than the one from Vita Liberata.

PICTURE No 4
You can really see the difference here. Left leg is bronzed and ready for a short dress – the right leg is light and boring to look at.
Left leg has Body Blur from Vita Liberata in the color Dark Moccha on. The right leg is wearing nothing.

PICTURE No 5
From left to right:
Body Blur in the color Light Latte from Vita Liberata, 280 DKK HERE
Body Blur in the color Dark Moccha from Vita Liberata, 280 DKK HERE
Bronzing Body BB Creme from The Body Shop, 120 DKK HERE

Try it out! It makes the whole difference.
I’m really addicted to these products whenever I’ve forgotten to tan or
the times where I’ve been unprepared for spontaneous events.

TRAVEL: The Ultimate Sun Protection Guide

toscana_sun toscana_sun1 toscana_sun2 toscana_sun3 toscana_sun5Photos by me / Mia Due

So I’m leaving for Toscany tomorrow, which means I’m packing all my stuff right now.
I’m the typical girl, who brings too much while I travel. You probably know the dilemma too.
But while I bring a lot of cute outfits that needs to feel the sun, I also bring a lot of beauty. Obviously.

I have promised myself to make you guys a few tutorials while I’m away.
So remember to keep an eye on my YouTube Channel or here on the blog.

These products are the ones I’ve packed so far – and they’re the most important ones too.
Everything in sun protection. As I’ve been traveling a lot since I was only a child and living abroad waaaay south, I’ve learned that the most important thing is to protect both your skin, body and hair against the UVA & UVB.

FOR THE HAIR

It’s super important to take care of your hair while you’re in the sun. 
Most women doesn’t know that the UV & UVB rays really damage and dry out your hair. 
Therefore I always use both a shampoo, conditioner and UV spray to take care of my hair while being in the sun. 
The spray protects the hair against the rays in up till 10 hours. The shampoo and conditioner will nourish and protect your hair, so it will stay hydrated and soft. 

Bain Après-Soleil Anti-Damaged Shampoo, Kérastase Soleil, 120 DKK HERE

Lait Richesse Restoring and Moisturizing Care, Kérastase Soleil, 150 DKK HERE

Sun UV Spray, Wella SP, 240 DKK HERE

FOR THE BODY & FACE

I always use a sunscreen spray on the body, cause I find it easier to spread out. 
But I’ve really fallen in love with the body lotion with SPF from Rudolph Care, it has the most lovely shine in it.
Not tacky glitter. But shine. 
I’ve also come to love the primer from Coola, since I’ve never been that happy for sunscreen in my face. I hate the stickiness. 
This primer is super soft and light on your skin. Perfect for hot weather. 
As I have a lipliner tattoo (which I’ll talk about in a later blog post), I always use protection on my lips. 
It’s important so the pigmentation doesn’t darken. 

Sun-C Sunscreen & Antioxidants Body Spray SPF30, Nimue, 350 DKK HERE

Sun Body Lotion SPF30 Shimmer Edition, Rudolph Sun, 165 DKK HERE

Daydream Mineral Primer SPF30, Coola, 400 DKK HERE

Lip Balm Sun SPF20, Tromborg, 180 DKK HERE

FOR AFTER THE SUN

Always nice, refreshing and nourishing to use an after sun after being in the sun all day.
The only part is that it can sting a bit in your face, when using the same aftersun for your face as you use on the body.

After Sun, Muti, 260 DKK HERE

After Sun Face Cream Yoghurt, Korres, 200 DKK HERE

FOR THE FACE

As mentioned before, I’m not a big fan of sunscreen in the face. Therefor I’m super excited about a facemist with SPF in it. 
You can even use this mist in your hair scalp if you tend to get a sunburn there. Then your hair won’t get greasy. Yay!

UV Bronze Hydra-Refreshing Anti-Aging Sun Mist SPF50, Filorga, 295 DKK HERE

Dior Bronze Beautifying Protective Suncare Face SPF30, Dior, 260 DKK HERE

FOR THE GLOW

Even though the sun is gonna give me a lot of tan while driving through Italy, I also like to help it a little on its way. 
The Dry Oil both has a SPF and gives you a gradual build tan, with I find super genius. 
The Glow Drops you can mix in your day or night cream, to get an extra glow that you can gradually build yourself. 

Marula Dry Oil Self Tan SPF50, Vita Liberata, 400 DKK HERE

Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, Clarins, 225 DKK HERE

So, I know there are a loooot of products. As I wrote them all down I suddenly saw how much sun protection I was planning on bringing along. Maybe I need to redo my packing, just a tad. Haha!

But I hope you can find inspiration in some of the products.

BEAUTY SCHOOL – How To Make A Cat-Eye

So a lot of you have asked me how to make a super dramatic cat-eye – so here it is!
In the video I guide you how to make a cat-eye with a few simple steps. This method that I use is super good for beginners – or just if your wing is making trouble one day.

As you can see on the picture, it’s a super dramatic cat-eye. But feel free to do it more fine and less intense.
You can either make the wing smaller or the line thinner.

I always use a triangle fluid eyeliner, cause I find it more easy to control.
The one I use in the video has been an all time favorite for some time now.

Colorful Eyeliner Intense & Resistant, Sephora, 80 DKK HERE

STEP 1

Make a small dot where the colored area in your eyes begins, when you look straight into the mirror.

STEP 2

Make a small dot where the colored area in your eyes ends

STEP 3

Make a small dot where the shape of your eye ends.

STEP 4

Find your bone above your eyelid, in the crease right our from your second dot, you make your final dot.

STEP 5

Connect the 4 dots

STEP 6

Fill out the entire cat-eye and voila! A beautiful cat-eye for you!

Hope you could use this!

vitaviva-antioxidant vitaviva-antioxidant2 vitaviva-antioxidants1Photos by me / Mia Due

 

So, I’m leaving for Toscany in Italy on Tuesday next week.
Which means that the last couple of weeks I’ve been really good with my supplements.
It’s important for me to keep my skin in the best shape it can be
– and that means preparing it for sunny destinations and another climate.

As you’ve probable seen on my blog earlier – I’m a big fan of Vitaviva.
It’s one of the only supplement brands I’ve ever tried, where I actually see a huge difference.
As I turned 26 two weeks ago, I’ve now come to a certain age where I’ve to take extra care of my skin,
to minimize wrinkles and unhealthy cells.

My supplements before and after my trip has a lot of good power antioxidants, protein and cleansing ingredients in it.
These 3 miracle wonders really helps me out …

ANTIOXIDANTS

Juice Complex is a mix of extracts of different red berries. It’s like the most perfect antioxidant, red smoothie with Acai, Pomegranate and Goji. Acai is a little purple berry from Brazil, which has become the most powerful antioxidant in the world. Together with the Goji berry, they create a mix of super strong antioxidants for your skin – while the Pomegranate has a heeling effect on your skin and makes sure your cell level is in balance.
This mix is perfekt for reducing the signs of aging, protect the skin and taking care of your cells.

PROTEIN & HYALURON ACIDS

Wrinkles Away has a strong combination of ingredients that makes your skin looking fresh, healthy and younger.
In this little mix, there are a lot of collagen – which is the most important protein in your connective tissue.
At the same time the little pill has a lot of hyaluron acid in it, which is one of the most important ingredients when it comes to hydrating your skin and reduce the signs of wrinkles.

Wrinkles Away, Vitaviva, 397 DKK HERE

 

TURMERIC

When I was a gymnast, I always ate a lot of Turmeric, because it has inflammatory and bactericidal properties.
This means that it will take care of any inflamed are in your skin or body and make sure to get the balance back.
Turemic is at the same time a super strong antioxidant – which you’ve already known what it’s good for.
So this little pill will keep you in a healthy balance, take care of your stomach and intestines, while it will clean your liver.
