Jeg troede altid at man kun kunne få føntørret hår med en rundbørste hos frisøren. “Der er da ingen som kan gøre det der hjemme” tænkte jeg. Men så prøvede jeg det. Nøglen til at gøre det der hjemme er ikke at gå i panik halvvejs. Det kan godt virke som en uoverskuelig process. Men fat mod! Bouncy, silke agtige lokker er lige om hjørnet hvis du bare tør springe ud i det. Efter jeg startede med at lave den her type hårstyling for ca et halvt år siden har mange spurgt mig om jeg har været ved frisøren. Men nej, det kan snildt gøres hjemmefra! Bare følg de forskellige steps nedenfor, de er skrevet på engelsk så alle kan være med.

english: I always thought that the round brush blowout was a salon thing. Nobody can do it at home was always my statement until I just went ahead and did it. The key is really just not to panic. Yes the brush will get tangled in your hair the first (and maybe the second time) you do it – but be brave! Great, silky, bouncy and beautiful hair is just around the corner. After I started doing this hairstyling about 6 months ago, people tend to ask me if I have just been at the salon. But nope, it’s all do able from your home office. Just follow the steps below, I hope you enjoy! 

Step 1

Always apply some sort of product before blowdrying (I mean ALWAYS). It’s important for the hair to have some sort of “help” when you apply heat. When I blow-dry my hair into a style I like to use a product that is specifically made to shape the hair during heat. Here I am applying the Moroccanoil Blow-dry Concentrate. Made specifically for frizzy unruly hair (like mine) making it easier to blowdry and brush through.

Step 2

I find it way easier to do my hair when I part it. It takes longer yes, but there is no time to be lazy with your hair. A great styling can last up to five days if you do it right the first time. Make it easy for yourself! I part my hair up to 8 times when I do this blow-dry routine and the end result always makes me happy I didn’t take the easy way out. If you don’t part your hair it will be less manageable.

Step 3

Ah yes, the most important step indeed. The blow-drying. First make sure to get yourself a killer brush. This is not where you want to save your money. You can have it for a very long time if you are good to it and it will make your job much easier. I use the 45mm Moroccanoil round brush made with wild boar hairs. It’s easy to use, it looks great and the ceramic center of the brush gives a 360˚ heat distribution. Genius. I always start from the roots and work my way down paying extra attention to the ends of my hair as I like that little swing at the end.

Step 4

Yes we are at that parting of the hair thing again. I always separate the dry hair from the wet hair. If you use a small plastic hair tie like this one it doesnt leave a mark your hair. Tying down your dry hair also makes it easier for you to keep on working on the wet areas.

Step 5

This step also applies if you dont have parted bangs like I do. Framing the face is key to this hairstyle. It’s what really gives that bouncy, beautiful shape to the hair. Part your front hair from the rest and brush it forward. Curl the brush up under it and onto your forehead. Don’t worry you won’t get a big curl in the middle of the face, not with this size brush. Apply heat from the root and out rolling the brush away from your face until you are satisfied.

Step 6

Let your hair loose and give it a break. Apply a styling cream with hydration if possible. The heat is tough on your hair, hand it a drink. I use the Hydrating Styling Cream from Moroccanoil starting at the roots of my hair and working my way down. I have a tendency to flyaways after a blow-dry but this cream really “calms” my hair down.

Step 7

Now this step is totally optional but I don’t think you can get enough volume so I like to tease the roots on top of my hair. Just to give that extra glam a shoutout. I use a fine teasing comb from Moroccanoil that also has a full head of wild boar hairs. Be aware though, this comb can really tease.

Step 8

For smoothing down flyaways and keeping the hair in check I use the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray in strong. I am really not a hairspray girl I have to admit. I don’t like the stickiness, the smell or the final look of the hair. It’s always almost crunchy. But this hairspray leaves my hair smooth, soft and not on lock down. Finally!

Final look

Voila, the final look! Shake your head (and your booty) and let your hair have it’s own life. What I really love about this hairstyle is that even though it has a very “perfect” finished look, it just gets better and better during the day as it gets a little rough around the edges. I can have this hair for many days, it also looks great in a long silky ponytail. Remember to apply product during the days to smooth down or if you need a bit of a tease. I hope you liked this little step by step guide! Please find all products (with links) down below.

Here’s what you need

Som i kan se har jeg allerede lagt min foundation og lavet mine bryn, hvis disse steps er interessante for jer klik her. Til det her look skal i bruge produkterne på billedet, selvfølgelig kan man bruge nogle af de ting man allerede har i brug derhjemme men dette er ihvertfald de ting jeg har brugt. Hvert produkt kan shoppes under de forskellige steps nedenfor – god fornøjelse!

english: So as you can see I already applied foundation and done my eyebrows, if you would like to see how I do this – take a look here. For this look you will need all the products in the photo above, of course you can use whatever you have at home – but this is what I have used to achieve this Christmas look. There is links for everything underneath every step – enjoy!

Step 1

When I apply eyeshadow I like to have a white or flesh toned base so the other colors have a even colored surface to rest on. For this look, all the eyeshadows will be from the Modern Renaissance pallet by Anastasia Beverly Hills and the color I am using as my base is the flesh toned color “tempera”. I like to apply this step with my fingers cause then I can really melt it into my eyelid with the warmth from my hand to create the best possible base.

Here using:
Eyeshadow pallet / Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here)

Step 2

Going into my crease with the color “buon fresco”, a warm lilac with undertones of taupe. This will be our transition color as our next step is a bit more of a bold color, we need something like “buon fresco” to compliment it but also to be our “blender”.

Here using:
Eyeshadow pallet / Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills, brush included (shop here)

Step 3

Our bold Christmas red “red ochre” is going to be our statement color on the lid. Here you will be happy that you blended well in step 2 as these two colors will need to come together as one. I like to use a fluffy blending brush for this, try Mac 217, it’s iconic! Use “red ochre” only on the outer corner of the eyes.

Here using:
Eyeshadow pallet / Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here), Brush / Mac 217 blending brush (shop here)

Step 4

Now to brighten up the eyes, grab the beautiful highlight color “vermeer” and place it on the center of the lid. Work your way into the corner of the eye and don’t be afraid to place a little under the corner of the eye as well. The brighter the better. Blend until you are happy with the way it looks.

Here using:
Eyeshadow pallet / Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills, brush included (shop here)

Step 5

I like to apply my concealer after I am done playing with my eyeshadows so I can clean up any fall outs. I am quite messy when applying makeup – am I the only one? Dot along the eyes, around the nose and if you need it – apply some to the chin.

Here using:
Concealer / Remedy pen in “wake up call” by Marc Jacobs (shop here)

Step 6

Setting my concealer with BB powder from L‘oréal Paris, I love to roughly smear out my concealer and then blending it, together with the powder, with the beauty blender. It’s kinda like fast baking!

Here using:
Powder / BB powder in “light” by L’oréal Paris (shop here)  

Step 7

This highlighter is just YUM! Use it on the top of your cheek bones and if you can’t get enough, just a little on the bridge of your nose and on your cupids bow. I only used it as shown in the photo because there is so much going on all ready and I didn’t want to over do it. But usually I am for highlighter allllll over!

Here using:
Highlighter / Creamy touch in “707” by Nilens Jord (shop here)

Step 8

Catliner is essential for a holiday look, I used a liquid liner from L’oréal Paris with just a touch of gold – it’s perfect for any party makeup. Apply mascara, and don’t worry if you make a mess, just clean it up and blend your shadow over it. Problem solved!

 Here using:
Liquid liner / Ultra precision super liner in “black gold” by L’oréal Paris (available in Matas), Mascara / Volume million lashes fatale by L’oréal Paris (shop here)

Step 9

Haha it looks like I ate a big sugar donut in the second photo, but don’t worry it’s just powder. For this look I choose a deep red with blue undertones for a colder look. I love the warm Christmas red, it’s a beautiful lip color but this colder red compliments the eyeshadow combination perfectly. I set the lipstick with the same powder I used under my eyes, if you want a mat finish just brush the powder off and voila! But if you want it more creamy look to your lips just apply another layer of lipstick after setting it with powder. Lasts for hours.

  Here using:
Lipstick / Color sensational in “divine wine 975” by Maybelline (shop here), 
Powder / BB powder in “light” by L’oréal Paris (shop here)  

Step 10

Last but not least put a smile on your face and voila! I hope you enjoyed this holiday look and that you will have fun creating your own!

Step 1
Here using: Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer by Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here)

Start with a clean face, however you rinse or cleanse this should be done already. Prep the face by using a primer. I use the under(cover) coconut primer by Marc Jacobs beauty, it’s light, smells wonderful and really makes the foundation blend in with the skin.

Step 2
Here using: Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate by Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here)
Born to glow highlighter by NYX cosmetics (shop here)

The people behind Marc Jacobs beauty says that one dot of foundation should be enough to cover your whole face. I agree with that statement very much, this is very high coverage so be aware not to fill your palm and just smear it on. I always mix my foundation / CC cream / BB cream (or whatever) with just a little bit of liquid highlighter – it gives a very natural glow to the face! I love to use my hands when applying my base, this is optional of course. My shade is ivory 12.

Step 3
Here using: Sculpt and highlight face duo by NYX cosmetics (shop here)

“Two different concealers you say?” No not at all, it’s totally optional, I just like using a lighter and a darker shade to add more definition to my face. Any concealer you know and love is totally fine!

Step 4
Here using: Glow kit in sun dipped by Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here)

Contour and highlight, some say this is the most important step of all. I love a good contour and highlight although I am probably doing it a little differently than others. I like to use a shiny contour instead of a matte one. Others tend to do it the other way around as the mat contour will then make the highlight pop even more but I love how the two highlighters (although different shades) lift each other up and creates a shiny, dewy and beautiful finish to the face. I used “summer” for my highlight and “bronzed” for the contour.

Step 5
Here using: Brow pencil in taupe by Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here)
Lash genius by Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here)

The step that makes the face! In my opinion. Before I knew how to do my brows I knew nothing at all (very dramatic by true!). I usually out draw the lines of the shape of brow I want that day and then I coat them with clear gel. The lash genius by Anastasia Beverly Hills is actually not even for the brows, it’s for your lashes, to make your mascara stay in place. But you see, I didn’t know that the first time I used it so I put it on my brows and went on with my day. I was outside and it started raining but my brows didn’t go anywhere because this baby is waterproof! Wuhu! Never wearing anything else.

Step 6
Here using: Sketch marker liquid art eyeliner in espresso by Too faced (shop here)
Always sharp waterproof kohl liner in nude by Smashbox (shop here)

I like to use a brown liquid liner for my winged eyeliner as it softens the look, especially when being very light like me it can be very harsh to wear all black. I line my waterline, for bigger and brighter eyes, with my favorite kohl liner in nude.

Step 7
Here using: Velvet noir volume mascara by Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here)

One of the best mascaras I have ever tired, by far! Easy to work with, easy to apply (and it applies a lot, which I love!).

344a4035

Step 8
Here using: Eyeshadow pallet by Bobbi Brown (shop similar here)

I always apply my eyeshadow after applying my mascara because I always make a horrified mess. For this look I wanted the lids to be warm and smokey. I used the pink shade in the inner corners of my eyes and the taupe color for my crease and outer corners of my eyes. It’s subtle, everyday friendly but still add’s some sass to this otherwise classic look.

Step 9
Here using: Le Marc lip crème lipstick in sonic truth by Marc Jacobs beauty (shop here)

I have to hand it too him, the Marc guy sure makes a lot of mesmerizing nude lipsticks. Besides carrying an amazing color range, the lipstick it self is beyond yummy! It’s creamy, light textured but super pigmented, LOVE! Sonic truth which I’m wearing here, is only one of my favorites from his collection, you should also check out Slow burn (here), No angel (here) and J’ adore (here). You’re welcome.
