Hi babes

So a lot of you might have seen it on my Instagram, lately I’ve been living my life, I’ve been way more social at been going out with friends and just living the good life you know. I mean I’m young, so why not.

But of course when you go out, when you maybe drink a little bit,  when you stay up late and stuff, your skin really needs hydration and to be taken care of.  So therefore I thought I’m going to film you an actual morning after a night out and show you how I take care of my skin and what I do to really bring back moisture and hydration into my skin and prep it for the next day or the next week ahead.

Some of you might also know that I have quite sensitive skin. So I can’t just apply random products on my skin. I always try to make smart choices and only use products where I know that there are good ingredients in it. 

For this Video I collaborated with DOBI.ch and they send me some products from REF. An innovative Swedish brand aiming to communicate the concept of natural beauty. All their products are 100% natural & vegan. They believe in a future where animals can live side by side with humans without any exploitation.

So the video is actually me showing the process but I wanna give you some inside details and thought what better way to do this, than write it down on my blog.

STEP 1

The first step I do in the morning, of course after rinsing my face with water, I put on the REF Skin Ezym Peel Face Mask . The peeling mask with AHA and BHA acids removes dead skin cells. It’s actually recommended to apply the mask in the evening before bedtime because there could be a little bit of redness afterwards but I actually didn’t experience that after I used it so for me it was okay to use it in the morning. Then I massaged the mask gently into the skin and waited for approximately 2 minutes and then rinsed my face thoroughly with lukewarm water.

STEP 2

Next up of course after the night out and after using makeup and stuff there is still a possibility that in the morning there will be a little bit of makeup residue on your skin and in your pores. So it’s very very important to also wash your face in the morning. I used the REF Skin Cleansing Face Wash and cleanseD my face with that. The refreshing foam thoroughly removes impurities without affecting the skin’s natural moisture balance. The rehydrating Vitamin B5 provides a smooth skin feeling after cleansing.

 

STEP 3

So I am actually a sucker for toner. And even though I washed my face and I did the mask I love to go over with a little bit of the REF Skin Cleansing Toner on a pad and just make sure that there is no makeup or oil residue left. It’s a pH-neutral tonic which gently cleanses and removes impurities and make-up residues. The Acai extract and vitamin B5 also help refreshing and moisturizing the skin.

 

STEPS 4 & 5

Of course after all that washing and toning and everything I wanted to bring back a little bit of moisture into my skin. Therefore I used the REF Skin Moisture 24-h cream.  And after that I used the REF Skin Moisture Eye Cream just for underneath my eyes. The skin around the eyes is very very sensitive so you have to be careful with the products that you use. This moisturizing formula with hyaluronic acid and silk tree extract soothes and refreshes the skin and was formulated for the sensitive skin of the eye area.

 

Yes and after that I’m actually done with the skin care part. Then I just got ready for the day. Oh and I forgot to do my eyebrows but you know it was Sunday it doesn’t really matter hahah…

And that’s pretty much everything I do to take care of my skin. I don’t do masks everyday but when I feel like my skin needs it I love to do apply one. Don’t forget it is very very important to always take off your make-up and also make sure that in the morning your skin is fresh and cleanse so it is ready to tackle the next day without having any residue off the last night. 

I really hope you liked the video and this post. Thank you so much for watching the video and also don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and also like the Video. Make sure to follow me on Instagram and yeah I hope to see you very very soon.

Hey Babes,

Well I was quite surprised. I discovered this brand not so long ago on instagram, and a couple weeks later DOBI asked me to do a video by trying out Absolute New York makeup. I received the products last week. This weekend I finally got to play with the products and I was very excited.

I started by trying out the STROBING & SHADING PALETTE. I honestly love the contouring and bronzing shades. I love that they are not extremely pigmented right away but are buildable. Because usually I tend to go a little heavy handed with bronzer and contour but with this palette it worked perfect.

For blush I used the CHIC CHEEK BLUSH DUO in Pinched/Flushed. I really like the fact that it has a little bit of shimmer. It makes you look fresh and glowy. First I put a little much on but it was absolutely no problem to sheer it out. That is very rare. Next time I would probably use a different colour combo but for this look it worked fine.

I already powdered my face beforehand and then applied the LIQUID ILLUMINATOR. I really loved the glow it gave my skin and it even worked on powdered skin!

For my Brows I used the SUPER SLIM BROW PENCIL. I liked how thin the applicator is so you can draw fine hair strokes. It is not the most pigmented brow pencil but I think this is not necessary bad because it is buildable.

Next eyes. Wow guys I was pleasantly surprised by this little palette. THE ICON MINI is right up my ally. It is small, compact and perfect for in your handbag, But other than that it also is extremely amazing in pigmentation and blendability. I have the AFLAME palette and love the warm tones. As you see in the video I was able to create a dramatic and beautiful look but I am certain that you can also do a very soft everyday look with it. Would absolutely recommend!

While doing my eyeshadow I carved out my edges with the HD FLAWLESS SETTING POWDER. Well I was careful with this one because when you see such a light/white powder with the keyword HD, you gotta be careful :D. I didn’t use it for setting my makeup and haven’t tried it yet. But to protect your undereyes from fall out and to carve out shadow it worked perfectly and didn’t leave a white cast.

Still on the eyes I used the STROKED PRO BRUSH LINER and OMG. Guys I am obsessed. I love this liner so much. It is matte and it feels like an actual pen. So I was able to be super precise and get that wing on fleek. My new fave everyday liner for sure! You may ask, why everyday. Well whnn I am getting ready for work I can’t be bottered to take 20mins on a liner. It needs to go quick and easy. This liner makes it possible. No bleeding, no smudging just amazing.

Last but not least, lippies. I tried the MODEST MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK IN WHISPER. And I have to be honest. I am not the biggest fan of liquid to mattes because I feel they are quite drying on my lips. Of course that’s what their here for. But beside that I really liked the colour and the pigmentation.

Well that is it. If you haven’t done so yet, check out the video and don’t forget to like and subscribe!

Hello Beautiful People ❤

So today I am back with a hair tutorial. This video is in Collaboration with PerfectHair.ch. They sent me some Products to try out and I wanted to show you my favorites and how to use them. Before we jump into the Hairtutorial I wanted to quickly show you the products, what they are and what they do. And also give you a quick review.

 

therma1

527351The first Product I used is the kms THERMA SHAPE Quick Blow Dry. It says it helps to achieve a faster quicker and healthier blow dry. Before usage you need to give it a little shake and then you can spritz it into your towel-dry hair. I don’t know if it is all in my head but since I use it, it feels like I am done blowdrying so much faster. This is an absolute plus. And of course it smells very fresh, sweet and amazing.

The next product I used in the tutorial was the SP Luxeoil from Wella Professionals. For a instant suppleness. It brings back the shine which your hair may have lost through out the years. Oh and this one smells amazing as well!

therma2

And last but definitely not least I use the kms THERMA SHAPE 2 in 1 Spray before I use heat on my hair. It’s a heat activated spray. Which means it gives your styling that extra hold and locks everything in place.

And guys, I have a special little goodie for you. You get 10% off your order with my code “Saskia10” (Valid until 31.01.2018). Go get your self that amazing hair ;P

So and now enjoy the tutorial and let me know what you think of it!
