My Morning Skincare Routine

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am going to talk about my morning skincare routine with you. I believe I posted in January about my evening routine and now I thought it is time to talk about my routine in the morning. If you want you can check out my evening routine here: My Evening Skincare Routine

I try to keep my morning routine as short as possible, because I think I am not the only one, but in the morning I just can’t be bothered for a long process. I just want to lay in bed as long as possibly and that means cutting down time wherever possible. So here are my skincare steps in the morning:

Cleanse

In the morning I use two different kind of cleansers. When I am under the shower I use the ‘Neutrogena – Visibly Clear exfoliation Wash Gel’. I feel like if I would use that on a daily basis it would leave my skin too matte, and I personally like a glowing skin a lot, but the cleansers helps with peeling of any dead skin. If I don’t shower I tend to use the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Fine Flowers Wash Gel’, as you might know from my ‘Evening Routine’ I love using this range by L’Oréal.

Exfoliate

Now, I don’t do this everyday, more like every two to four days. I love exfoliating my face with the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Sugar Scrubs Glow Peeling’. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and it is not so harsh. If you want to know more about it, check out my review: L’Oréal Paris – Smooth Sugar Glow Scrub Review

Moisturize

Now to my last step of my routine – moisturizing. I am currently using a combination of two products, because my skin can use a little bit more moisture at the moment. I start by using the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Genius Moisturizer’ and then go in with the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Active 3 Moisturizer’, both are for sensitive. I prefer using products that are designed for sensitive skin types because more than once I noticed my skin is much better off with those products. If you want to know more about the ‘Hydra Genius’, check out my review: L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Genius Moisturizer Review

What is your skincare routine? Tell me or link me your routine in the comments. I would love to know about it.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

My Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am going to talk about my all time favorite eyeshadow palettes. When it comes to my eyeshadow I am not much of a crazy color kind of girl, but I do love a good smokey eye in various shades.

I’ve taken all the pictures with the flash light on, just fyi.

Urban Decay – Naked 3

I LOVE this palette, you can do an intense smokey eye or a natural every day kind of look. When I thought about buying one of the ‘Naked’ palettes last year I was debating which one to get, but it was either this one or the ‘Naked Heat’ palette (which I might invest in later this year). I love the colors and I think the go great with my eye color. My favorite color has to be ‘Mugshot’, but ‘Buzz’ is a very close second.

NYX – Lid Lingerie

This palette has been my everyday shadow palette the entire fall/winter season. You can create so many different looks with this and I love that all the shades are matte. They have a great color pay off, are easy to blend and have almost no fall out at all. I’ve been highly enjoying the burnt orange shade.

NYX – Full Throttle  in Color Riot

This palette has been with me super long. It’s my most used palette for fall season. Those colors just scream Fall to me, don’t you agree? I especially love the cranberry red and lately I’ve been enjoying the orange shade a lot.

NYX – Beauty School Dropout 101 in Nude

As you can see I almost hit pan with quite a lot of the shades and that’s because, I believe, this palette has been with me for about three or four years and has been my everyday shadow for as long. I believe that it got replaced by the ‘Lid Lingerie’ palette some time ago, because I wanted a more matte eyeshadow look back then. But whenever I am doing a bronze smokey eye, I always go back to these shades. The second shade next to the gold is my absolute favorite from the entire palette!

NYX – Love Contours All

This palette has not only nine different shades of eyeshadow, but also includes two highlighters, two contour colors, as well as two shades for the eyebrows. To be honest with you, I almost did not put this into this entry, but there are three shades of this palette that I absolutely love and have been using more frequent as of lately. And that is the gold highlight, the third eyeshadow from the first row right under the mirror and the dusted lilac shadow. I just love these colors, so I had to put them into this entry!

What are your favorite eyeshadow palettes? Tell me in the comments.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Travel Tip – Düsseldorf ‘Altstadt’

Hey my loves,

as some of you might now I love Düsseldorf and so it seemed more than natural to me to do a travel tip for you about my favorite part about the city, which is it’s ‘Altstadt’. If you have ever been to Düsseldorf you now which part it is, because it is the best part of the city with a perfect view of the Rhine.

A couple of weeks ago I went on a little photo mission with my friend Miri to show you some of the places. We went along the Rhine, we even went into some small streets, which I never have been to and ended up somewhere in the Art District. I had so much fun, and I hope that these photos make you want to stop by and visit Düsseldorf. So here is a quick look at some of the photos we took.

 

Have you ever been to Germany? Tell me in the comments where you have been, I would love to know.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Everyday Makeup for Spring & Uni

Hey my loves,

in today’s video I show you my everyday routine during Spring when I have my classes at University. I usually have about 20 minutes for my makeup in the morning, so I am able to do quite a lot, but I do have to make sure it lasts all day, because I have really long days. If you want to know how achieved this look then check my video out.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and if you did make sure to give it a big thumbs up. It would mean the world to me if you could subscribe and leave me a comment telling me what your favorite primer for a long day of wearing makeup is.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

My Spring Beauty Favorites

Hey my loves,

in today’s post I am going to talk about some of my beauty favorites that I have been loving this spring season. I recently been into a more dewy, glowing makeup look and also more of a bronzed up eye.

I could have easily titled this post ‘What I recently love from Maybelline’, haha. Just kidding, that is actually just a coincidence that all my spring favorites are from them. But I have been loving some of their products, which might explain this.

The primer especially has become one of my absolute faves. It makes my makeup stay on so much longer and it doesn’t break me out, which is a plus for me. And ever since they came out with a ‘Luminous + Smooth’ Fit Me foundation range I’ve been loving to look dewy and glowy. And with that being said it is no wonder that I am loving their blush in Coral Fever which is a sparkly blusher. It just leaves your cheeks looking so pretty.

But now onto the main attraction: the MASTER Bronze Color & Highlighting Kit. I am LOVING this product. I have been using it as bronzer, highlighter and for my eyeshadow! It is so versatile and I just love it! Here is a makeup look I’ve created and to which I will upload a YouTube video soon.

What have been your favorites this spring season? Tell me in the comments I would love to know and maybe even try out some new things.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Banana Bread Recipe

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am sharing with you a simple and easy Banana Bread recipe. I love bananas and I am a huge fan of using browned bananas for new recipes, just like this ‘Banana Bread’.

1.jpg

I added some leftover chocolate from Easter, but you can literally add anything you want. I added walnuts once and that was amazing too! What are some of your favorite ingredients to add to Banana Bread?

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175 Degrees.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat. Let it cool off.
  3. Peel and mush the bananas in a bowl.
  4. Add egg, sugar, vanilla, melted butter, salt and cinnamon to the bananas and combine them. You can use an electric whisk for this as it smooths down the batter with the bananas in them even more!
  5. Now add flour and baking powder and combine until smooth.
  6. If you like you could add some chocolate to the mixture and fold it in. I just smashed up a chocolate Easter bunny I had left over.
  7. Transfer the batter to a bread pan lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until you can stick the bread with a toothpick an now batter is left on it. But be careful not to burn yourself!

I hope you enjoyed this entry and if you decide to bake this banana bread, send me your pictures on Twitter or Instagram. I would love to see them!

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
