Beauty Founder Stories: Interview with Sophie Kuehn from Miss Sophie’s Nail Wraps

[English Translation below]

Während unserer Arbeit an twindly haben wir viele verschiedene, faszinierende Menschen in der Beauty-Branche kennengelernt.

Das würden wir nur zu gerne mit allen unseren Lesern machen, und haben deswegen diese Interviewserie ins Leben gerufen. Wir werden Insider wie Makeup-Artists, Firmengründer und Meinungsbildner nicht nur zu ihren Vorstellungen von Schönheit, sondern auch zu ihren besten Tipps und Tricks befragen. Also, nehmt Euch einen Kaffee, setzt Euch und – enjoy!READ MORE

Here to Stay – Beauty Faves of 2014 (PART 2)

Just like Dorit in part one, I’m a fan of the Marsala trend. Although my list of beauty faves still revolves around color, as I didn’t have a successful foray into skincare this year. It’s still so hard for me to find the HG skin care with changing skin and the harsh winter months over here. Here’s hoping that twindly will help me find better products this year!READ MORE

Here to stay – beauty faves of 2014 (part 1)

2014 was a year of great cosmetics releases. There were a lot of beautiful makeup collections (Mac’s Alluring Aquatics come to mind, or Guerlain’s Un Soir a L’Opera) great new products (Nars Audacious Lipsticks) and a lot of skincare discoveries – oils really stepped into the spotlight, micellar waters by drugstore brands made it a little bit easier to access the hyped product.
