BEAUTY TALK: airbrush make-up

Have you ever wondered what your face and skin would look like with picture perfect make-up? I’ve heard about lots of make-up artists working with air brush systems to create a flawless complexion and have always wanted to try it to see what all the fuss is about. About 2 weeks ago I was invited to try the Temptu home airbrush system, which was just brought to Austria by Mariana Hiebl and allows all women (aside from professionals) to use airbrush make-up. Temptu’s airbrush-system debuted in 2009 as the first easy-to-use, professional-quality, home airbrush makeup system. As you know, I have very dry skin and am not the biggest fan of heavy foundations and usually stick to more natural/light BB creams or tinted moisturizers, so that was one of the main concerns I had about the airbrush. However, Mariana quickly informed me that the airbrush was actually a good alternative for dry skin, because it doesn’t go into the skin, but rather covers it to lock in the moisture. We moisturized before and the make-up lasted all day without drying out my skin. I really liked the results and love the option of having such professional results at home, but for daily use it would be a bit too much work for me personally and it definitely takes practice to apply it evenly. However, for formal events or shoots I think it is a perfect option. Mariana actually used the Temptu system on me for a recent photo shoot as well, and in my opinion it was one of the prettiest looks I’ve ever had done for a shoot. Have any of you tried Temptu or heard of it? I’d love to hear your opinions!

TRAVELS: Servus, Oktoberfest

As you guys know, this year was a first for me – I attended the Oktoberfest in Munich with a big, fun blogger-gang for the #coverprwiesn! It is such a different world, the second I got of at the train station I knew the so-called “Wiesn” takes over an entire city for 17 days. People in Lederhosen and Dirndl (the traditional clothing) literally everywhere! All of us girls wore dresses by HALLHUBER and I loved mine (see the entire look HERE). An old lady even came up to us and asked to take pictures because she thought our Dirndl were the prettiest around ♥ To make my look a bit more modern, I decided to wear the Dirndl with accessories by Zalando. I know you guys have seen my ASH boots here on the blog quite a bit (major love) and I also got the perfect Love Moschino crossbody bag – which I can definitely recommend for the Oktoberfest, trust me you want to have your hands free for the big beer Maß! On the day of the event, KMS California had 3 stylists for us, which were nice enough to help with our hair. I got a big braided wreath around my head, which I absolutely loved, and some of you already commented so nicely about on Instagram! To give you a better idea of what our day was like, here are some impressions from the Cover PR Wiesn Special 2014 with AnjaAnniDesi & NisiFranziJanaJulianeMashaKiki and Olga

OUTFIT: autumn in London with HALLHUBER

As some of you may remember, I flew to London in early July to shoot with HALLHUBER. I got a first look at the new autumn/winter collection, and seriously fell in love. Lots of cool black, oversized coats, girly fluffy sweaters in pastel tones and casual plaid. Basically everything and more of what Fall should look like. HALLHUBER defines the new casual luxe in London at night for their Fall / Winter Campaign 2014. British nonchalance meets art, urban coolness meets femininity with a touch of charm and personality. To transport the message outside of the lookbook, HALLHUBER asked me and 2 other bloggers to join in on the fun! Today, I get to share some of my favorites from the new collection with you guys, as well as some of my personal favorite looks for Fall that we shot in London!

Look 1: leather leggings and plaid shirt

CRAVINGS: Oktoberfest-ready

As you guys know, I’ll be heading to the Oktoberfest exactly 10 days from today (yay!!) and I can’t wait to see what the fuzz is all about. Plus, I’ll be spending the day with 10 fellow blogger ladies from Germany, which makes it even better! I already showed you my beautiful Hallhuber Dirndl HERE (which btw is also available in the Zalando Dirndl-Shop) and shared a little hair tutorial HERE – so now it’s time to accessorize. Even though I decided on a delicate necklace for my look, I also feel that the Oktoberfest is a perfect opportunity to wear something big and glitzy. For today’s cravings, I decided to put together my actual choices, as well as a second option I’d love to wear! Which one would you choose? Simply click on the products below to shop the look:
