Linklove: The best December reads

Holiday season and a kinda depressing 2016, the aftermath of the Gilmore Girls revival, the scent of different cities, the search for the best skincare products – that could very well describe my last weeks, but is actually a description of some of the blog posts and articles I really enjoyed this month and think you might enjoy too. Onwards to the best December reads!READ MORE

best beauty products of 2016

The best and worst of 2016

While we all very likely will agree that 2016 was a pretty horrible year generally, I look at this year’s beauty experiences and guys, I don’t know. 2016 had some pretty fantastic products. Either new ones, or ones that weren’t new but new to me. There also were some pretty crap ones, too. Let’s have a look at the best beauty products of 2016, some un-favourites and the ones that were solidly meh.READ MORE

beauty bucket list for 2017

The beauty bucket list for 2017

Bucket lists. What better end to 2016 than looking forward to the beauties 2017 will bring, and to ponder what to buy from the upcoming spring releases? Because I don’t know about you, but chances aren’t really big that this girl will ever do a triathlon (nor would I want to) and trekking the Inca trail is about my worst nightmare. But a beauty bucket list is straight up my alley!READ MORE

Wired Germany and twindly Giveaways

We’re on Wired Germany (and Having Giveaways) !

How are you doing? I hope you’re doing incredibly well this year so far (despite all the 2016 turbulence).

Astrid here, and I’m sending you greetings on behalf of the whole twindly team! I’ve been somewhat quiet on the blog, partially because Dorit has been doing such a great job on it, but also because we are cooking up some great stuff for 2017!READ MORE

how to pair lips and cheeks

Three lipstick and blush dream teams that work

I do have my makeup routines. I guess everyone has. The looks that always work, the fallback looks when you’re feeling crap or if you’ve got 10 minutes left. And then you break out of your routine, and start to wonder – does this new lipstick work with this look? How about this blush, does it work? How to pair lips and cheeks, dammit?READ MORE

Best shopping in Ubud, Bali

A shopping afternoon in Ubud, Bali

Here on twindly, we’re always curious which exotic beauty items we’ll find when we’re vacationing. (We shared our Hawaiian, Icelandic, Singaporean finds here and also have handy Frankfurt and Berlin beauty shopping guides.) When I arrived in Bali, famous for its spa culture, yoga, beaches and arts and crafts, I came armed with a list of beauty shops I wanted to visit. (Among temples, volcanoes and beaches, of course.) Imagine my disappointment when one of the shops had moved, and I could only find one of the others! But nevertheless, I want to share some gems I found in Ubud, a charming city in the midst of the island.READ MORE

Eye makeup

Am I beautiful?

I guess nobody wakes up everyday and feels they’re beautiful. Media assures us that even supermodels look in their mirrors and find flaws in their beautiful faces, so regular women like you and me are entitled to their struggles with the face and body that looks at us every morning in the mirror. Even sweeter, though, the moments in which we actually feel beautiful, be it because our makeup is on point, our significant other paid us a sweet compliment, or we feel one with the universe during a walk outside, a yoga lesson or meditation. (I want to stress that feeling beautiful has nothing to be whether you’re wearing makeup or not, but this being a beauty blog, I gather that you might wear makeup from time to time!)READ MORE
