Get the look: Grey Hair

Get the look: Grey Hair

Grey hair. We’ve all seen it, some envied it,some love it, others hated it.
Grey hair seems to be the fall hair trend, and because I am all about fall, I had to write about
-or at least mention- it on this blog. 
Grey hair is definitely going to be the main point I your look, so you’ll definitely need a fresh face. But keep it natural by applying BB cream or a light foundation.  Use a beauty blender or your fingers for the most natural turn out. Use a translucent powder to set your makeup and prime for your contouring. Choose a browner shade that is about two shades darker than your skin tone. Apply your Bronzer of choose in a flipped 3, focusing on your jaw bones,slightly below your cheekbones, and temples. Now let’s get your brows on fleek! Choose your formula of choice, powder or pencil. Remember to always try to use a color that is exactly your shade.  Now go ahead and fill in the gaps in your brows. Next are your eyes, use a black eyeliner to tighlign your top and bottom lash line. Then add extra length and volume using your fav mascara.
After dying your hair it is going to be very sensitive. Dying your hair grey is especially harmful to your hair, as you’ll probably have to go through the whole process of bleaching your hair. To build up strength use a face mask twice a week for the first five weeks, and then either once a week or just occasionally. 
Heat only  damages the hair further, but don’t stress! You can have the effortless-looking  curls without heating up metal to force you hair to go in form. 
Use texturizing creams,sprays, or the old-fashioned braiding system.

I hope this helps you achieve your #fallhairgoals

xoxo,Antonia

How to apply Eyeliner

First, you got to decide what type of Eyeleiner you want to use. Most people say that pencil is the easier to use,but I personally prefer Gel eyeliner because it’s just easier to get to the Lash-Crown. Pencil just always complicates things and leaves a clear line from between my lash-roots and the actual Black Line.

So just try to figure out what you prefer using.

What you’ll need:
-Obviously,you need eyeliner. Choose between Gel,Liquid,and pencil.
-Liquid liner mostly comes is a tube-thing with a little brush, or a “fine-liner” where the liquid flows into a felt tip which you use to apply it.
-For Pencil Eyeliner all you need is a Pencil-Eyeliner (They are the cheapest) and a sharpener to sharpen the tip of your Pencil.
-Gel Eyeliner is simple, you need the Gel Eyeliner which mostly comes in a little Pot that will last for ages. You will also need an eyeliner brush. They have them in all shapes,sizes and even materials (Real Techniques has a silicone Brush which I am planning to buy soon!)

Now that you have all you need, make sure that your position is right. Tilt your head back a bit,use your non-write hand to pull you eyelid down (Yes,As if you made a grimace in Kindergarden). It’s best to rest your Elbow on a flat,strong surface.

Start from the middle of the lash-crown and swiftly drag the Liner to the end of your Lid.

It’s as easy as that. Or not.

The wing is pretty simple to do, you’ve probobly seen the whole “Outline-Fill in” method,but I hate it and don’t get it at all.

So I tend to not do a Big wing. But if you want to make a wing,just drag the line a little further keeping it straight, and then adding a tiny curve in the end.

And that’s it!
Your perfect Eyeliner is completed!

I will definitely film a Video to this,do you really know what to do.

I hope this is not to weird and complicated.

xoxo,Antonia

What I do After beign on the Plane (My Facial Routine)

Hello World!
First of all,Happy Easter to everyone! I also want to excuse my self for not posting anything for so long! To make it up for you this post is going to be a longer one. Have fun and let’s start!

20140421-183352.jpg

This is a picture of the things I used only for my Face.

Clockwise: Essence Lash and Brow Gel,Nivea Aqua Effect Cleansenig Foam, Nivea Aqua Effect Toner, Nivea Pure Effect All-In-1 Daily Cleanser,Eos Strwaberry Parfait,Balea Gold Effect Lipbalm,Ingrid Aloe Vera Supergel, Ebelin Facial Hand Brush.

First I washed my Face with Water. Then I spread the Nivea All In 1 Mask onto my clean skin. I let it sit for about 5 Minutes while checking my Phone. Then I washed it off with my Facial Brush. The All in 1 Nivea Product is a Peeling,Mask and Cleanser. That’s why I like using it. Then I dabbed a Cotton Pad in the Toner and spread that over my face. I then used scrub on my Lips and applied my EOS Lipbalm in the Flavor ‘Strwaberry Parfait’. I also took a cold spoon to spread some of the Aloe Gel under my Eyes.

Now to the Scrub:

I love spices! Don’t you? I mean they smell and taste good. But wait… They don’t only do that! For example Cinnamon. Cinnamon tastes and smells good. It is also a great mild addition to your routine! Here is one of the many ways to use Cinnamon as Beauty Product!

DIY Cinnamon Sugar Scrub:

What you’ll need:
-Sugar
-Cinnamon
-Lemon Juice (it’s best to use fresh Juice instead of the store bought one)
-Any Oil of your choice,I used the good old Coconut Oil

What to do:

Take 1/2 cup of sugar and fill it in a bowl. Next add two teaspoons of Cinnamon. Miss the two powder so they are a solid color. Next add 2-4 teaspoons of your Oil. After adding the Oil add 1-2 Teaspoons of your freshly presses Lemon Juice. Stirr everything till it’s an even ‘paste’.You can add more Sugar or Lemon if you prefer. Now just put the Scrub into a nice Container and start Scrubbing off those dead cells!

You can use this scrub everywhere on your body,just make sure to keep it away from you eyes and and sensitive Body Parts. The Cinnamon may cause redness and a burning effect.

I hope you enjoyed reading this!

Xoxo Antonia ❤️
