VIDEO WEDNESDAY: How To Do a Salon Blow Dry at Home


I promised you videos where I style some of my Balmain Hair Couture Extensions.
Here’s one of my favorite looks using only one piece of hair extension.
Who hasn’t always loved the feeling of a new blow dry straight from the salon?
Your hair always feels so soft, bouncy and smooth.
… and why not create the same feeling and look at home?

This is my way of doing it, at I absolutely love this look.

HERE’S WHAT I USED

And please let me know if there’s a hairstyle you would want a tutorial on!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
