best Purple Shampoos for blondes

IMG_3972

Good Morning Everyone! Todays Beauty Post is about my Haircare Routine. If you’re a blonde or even if you have highlights on darker hair, you know that over time the color can turn a hot shade of mellow yellow. It’s hard to get excited about your hair when the tone is off. I think every girl can change a lot with an effective purple shampoo in her beauty regime. The science behind it is quite simple: Purple is the opposite from yellow on the color wheel. Purple hues naturally balance gold tones and are especially effective at fighting brassy shades. Here are my 4 favorite purple shampoos which are definitely worth a try.

Good morning Everyone! I hope you all have a great week so far.

Today it felt like spring is in the air…:-) We had a beautiful sunrise this morning and the birds were singing so loud… You can feel the seasons are in transition and i am gearing up to dive in. I am looking forward to change my warderobe to softer, brighter colors – and so do my Nail Polish Shades… Today I’d love to share my TOP 5 Nail Polishes for Spring 2016.

Lately I am totally in love with with the new line of La Laque Couture from Yves Saint Laurent. It’s a vibrant collection and makes every woman couture to the fingertips. The new formula dries faster and offers extreme shine and care for nails. It gives the highest coverage and perfect coloration after applying just one coat! The flat brush enables a perfect application with just one stroke. For me it is the perfect nail polish.

 

 

  1. No 24 Rose Abstrait – It’s a versatile, whisper-soft pink and a timeless addition to my repertoire. One coat gives a sheer wash of color, while two lends it more opaque.
  2. No 39 Beige Gallery –  It’s the ultimate nude nail shade, it’s not to light and not to dark, just perfect.
  3. No 34 Jade Imperial – it’s an “arty” jade green and the perfect color for the whole year.
  4. No 201 Le Rouge Mat – This red is great. It’s such an elegant kind of red. Very pretty. And i love the matt finish, it’s very special.
  5. No 8 Fucsia – This color is just gorgeous. It’s a burgundy shade, that changes with different lighting.

 

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day !!!

best brow products

Good Morning Everyone! Todays Beautypost is about EYEBROWS. Eyebrows have an enormous impact on the overall appearance of the face, framing the features and creating balance when correctly groomed. In recent years, with the arrival of brow queen Cara Delevingne on the scene and a renewed focus on them as a catwalk „trend“, the brow industry has boomed – and the resulting products are better than ever. There are waxes, glosses, gels, powders and brushes, but the classic brow pencil remains an essential when it comes to filling in, shaping, defining and emphasising. Today i am sharing the best eyebrow products i discovered the last month!

PENCILS

Pencils changing your brow’s shape. They are great for sharpening up an arch or extending the brow’s tail. I love double ended pencils with brushes or spoolies. After sketching your shape, brush over the eyebrows to give the look of hair.

MY FAVORITES

1 Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, my color ash blonde (shop here)

2. NYX Micro Brow Pencil, my color taupe (shop here)


BRUSH-ON GELS

A brow gel that shapes and keeps arches in place for perfect definition. The best gels have a water-resistant formula that won’t flake or dry too shiny or crispy. To achive natural lift, sweep the gel through your eyebrows in an upward motion. This grooming technique will showcase your arches and really work to best frame your eyes.

MY FAVORITES:

3. Benefit Gimme Brow Gel, my color light medium (shop here)

4. NARS Brow Gel (shop here)


BROW POMADE or CREAM GEL

A brow pomade performs as an all-in-one brow product. Use a brush for a precise application. This creamy, multitasking product glides on skin and hair smoothly to create clean, defined brows. The formula works as a brow primer and provides color, sculpture, and shading. It is ideal for oily skin and in humid climates.

MY FAVORITES:

5. Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade, my color blonde (shop here)

6. MAC Brow Gelcreme, my color ash blonde (shop here)


POWDER

Brow Powder are best for people who just wants to add a bit of blushness to their brows, but who don’t suffer from major brow issues. Powder is perfect for already well shaped brows. It applies an overall uniform color.

MY FAVORITES:

7. Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo (shop here)

8. Benefit Brow Powder Kit (shop here)

Hello 2016 – M2 Beauté LASHES

_STG0257

Hello Everyone!!! This is my first official post of 2016! Looking forward to all the new adventures 2016 has in store for my wonderful family. Wishing you all health and lots of love this year, thank you for your support of my blog. I really appreciate it !!!

Todays post is about a little beauty secret for beautiful long eyelashes with amazing volume!!! Which woman doesn’t like to have beautiful long lashes… A couple month ago i started using the M2 Beauté EYELASH ACTIVATING SERUM. And actually i am very critical when it comes to such beauty wonder products. But i heard so much positive things about it, that i decided to try it. It is very easy to use. You apply the serum once a day to the base of the upper eyelid lash line, just like a eyeliner. I prefer to use it every night after cleansing the eye area. One brush-stroke is sufficient, then let it dry for a little moment before you apply your usual skin care products. Usually you see the first visible results after around six to eight weeks, but honestly i felt a difference after four weeks of using.

The key active ingredient in all this is a complex MDN, a prostaglandin derivative, which in an alternative form is used in ophthalmology. This modified and carefully dosed ingredient compound stimulates eyelashes at their roots to increase the number of lashes whilst extending the growth phase and delaying lash loss.

Additional Beneficial Components include:

• Panthenol (Vitamin B5) dispenses moisture and promotes shine

• Biotin (Vitamin B7) strengthens lashes and restricts the cycle of lash loss

• Hyaluronic acid keeps the lashes moisturised and healthy

• Prodew 300 absorbs and retains moisture

• Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) retains moisture and provides the lashes with more elasticity and strength

And, in keeping with the M2BEAUTÉ philosophy, M2LASHES contains only ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. The products are hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers.

If you fancy splashing out, I’d definitely recommend this product. You can shop it (here). It comes in a nice little bag with some Eye-Make-Up Remover Pads (short time offer).
