Maybelline Sensational Spices – Hot Sauce

 Hi you guys, 

(post contains affiliate LInks/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

in the month of December I participated in Jackie Giardina´s #31daylipstickchallenge on Instagram and it was just what I needed. She has done it before and I wondered if I could be this consistent a whole month especially now that I am home already waiting on the baby. This was perfect cause it gave me a reason to dress up everyday and not wear my Christmas pj´s through the whole month of December all day every day. Also I have worn some lipstick colors I bought some time ago but stopped using for some reason. This is the main reason of the challenge to use the lipsticks which aren´t usually your first choice. Perfect for me as I own tons of lipsticks but tend to wear the same ones a lot. I think I did a pretty good job. My challenge contained a lot of different red shades as it was Christmas month and I also love a rich red color. 

I joined in on day 5 cause I haven´t noticed it earlier and I think it is really cool that everyone who wants to can participate. I am definitely going to join another round if there will be one. All of the lipsticks I used are linked under the pictures or in the widget below.

New Years Eve Hair Tutorial – go big or go home….

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

….

Hello friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

welcome back to my blog. It is New Years Eve tomorrow and if you are still searching for a big and beautiful hair style I got you covered. I love curls in my hair and they usually last me for days so it is also super convenient. Spending 15 minutes on my hair and it lasts for about 4 to 5 days but this hair style I am sharing today is a little more time consuming. It takes about 35 minutes just to curl the hairs, no cooling and styling time added. 

But if you want extra volume and a hairstyle to impress I would say this is for you – go big or go home am I right 😉

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

I start with clean and dry hair. You can straighten it before curling if you want but I don´t think it is necessary. 

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

I part my hair in different sections about 7 (it depends on how thick your hair is and apply heat potectant spray on every layer. I am using the curl hold spray from ghd. It is supposed to support your curls to last longer and also protects your hair from the heat. After combing my hair through I start curling my hair. 

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

These are the hair clips I am using to hold every individual curl. I got them off of amazon. They are sold in sets of 50. I used about 65 for all of my curls.

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

For this style it is super important to curl really small sections of hair. About 1 cm thick but not more. That is why you have a ton of curls at the end. It also gives you the most volume. I am using the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand with the smallest barrel. I always hold my curling wand upside down and wrap my strand of hair away from the face. Hold if for about 10 seconds and as tight as possible.

Loosen the curl and let is slide down the wand. Then hold it until you can lay your wand aside.

Clip it immediately as long as it is hot and and don´t uncurl your strand of hair. It has to cool down first. Repeat the same for your whole head is what takes the most time but the more acurate you are working here the better the curls look and hold in the end.

That´s how it look after you are done curling. Let them set and cool for about 20 to 30 minutes. If you haven´t done your make-up before that is how I would use the time.

After removing all the hair clips this is what it looks like before combing through.

<div data-sc-widget-id="P-5e0a8001ba0c756a8243497a"></div><script async src="//widgets.shopstyle.com/shopstyle-widget-snippet.js"></script>

I didn´t use a comb or brush at all. I just used my finger to comb through my hair as the curls stay tighter like this. Also adding a volume spray or hairspray or a combined product like the one I got from bed head is a must. I keeps your curls in place while they are still looking bouncy and natural.

We are going out for an early dinner tomorrow and then head home straight after because Chloe is terriefied of the fireworks and I wouldn´t want to leave her at home alone. Also I am super tired in the evenings as the bump grows a lot these days so we are enjoying a low key New Years Eve.

Wishing everybody a great celebration and see you.

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate LInks-not sponsored)

I got my nails done for Christmas today (have a look at them on my stories) and it started snowing while I was at the salon so I am in the ultimate Christmas mood today. Currently sitting on my sofa writting this post with my lit Christmas tree and sippin´on a hot chocolate.

Since we are under 2 weeks away from Christmas I am sharing my penultimate gift guide on the blog today. I haven´t done as many as last year but I think the 19 gift guides are a lot more interesting cause they are different from a lot of the main guides that are around.

But of course there is one oldie but goodie – the beauty gift guide. I love to have a look at other beauty gift guides to see what the other blogger would recommend gifting in the beauty section.

silk pillow cover / one step hair dryer / mini ventilator / set of velvet pearl headbands / Wet Brush / checkered make-up pouch / T3 Whirl Trio / benefit make-up set / L.O.V I´m more than Gold eyeshadow palette / MAC Lucky Stars lipstick kit / MAC prep+prime primer / Rituals gift set 

I really love everything beauty related and more than anything trying out new products. There are a bunch of things from this gift guide I already got (mini ventilaor, silk pillow case, T3 Whirl Trio, Rituals Set, Wet Brush, Mac Primer, L.O.V eyeshadow palette, one-step hair dryer, velvet headbands) and love and would gift anytime and also some I would like to get. Just a little hint if my husband is reading my blog 😉

Check back for a whole lot of more christmassy blog posts any day.

Good evening to all off my happy readers,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is Friday finally. I have been getting some last pieces I was missing to complete my Christmas decor and I am going to be done by the end of the weekend. Yeah for that.

So for today´s part I am sharing some cute little beauty sets to gift to your collegues, neighbours, to use as stocking stuffer or just ot keep for yourself 😉

There will be another beauty gift guide with a lot more ideas but for now I wanted to share these little and unexpensive things cause gift don´t always have to cost a lot to show someone you appreciate them.

Bare Minerals Lipstick Set

I recently got into Bare Minerals lipsticks and I have to admit I love them. The intensity of the color, the longlivity and all the gordeous colors. So I thought why not test a set out. It has half nude and half bright color kit. 

EOS Lip Balm Set

This is such a cute and inexpensive gift and also one every woman needs. There are two different scents in the pack so you could also easily spread it up.

Real Techniques Brush Set

A german brand that makes great quality brushes at an awesome price point. I got my first set for my birthday about three years ago and loved them ever since. They have several different sets also for travel. Their beauty blender also is my go-to and I always have an update at home.

Rituals Set

I am gifting a bunch of these every year during the holidays as these are all awesome. The smells of all are so so good and the sizes are great for travelling. Also the gift boxes are beautiful and make a nice piece of decor or a keepsake box.

Bare Minerals Gloss and Blush Set

Such a good deal on this set. A color matching full size set including a blush and a lipgloss. I came to know Bare Minerals products during the last Sephora sale and I like them a lot. They are great quality products. A little pricey but if you wait for sale opportunities or gift sets you get a great value for your money.

MAC Lucky Star Lipstick Kit

2019´s MAC holiday collection is adorable and I love it even more than the last two. The glittery pink all over the cases and the imprinted stars on the little lipsticks are to die for. Would make a nice stocking stuffer or a great surprise for the make-up loving gal in your life.

Hope this has given you some insight on what´s out there to get for this year. There are some tried and true classics but also always new products. 

Have a great weekend. See you back on Monday.
