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

Hi! I’m Dorit. Nice to meet you! I figured that while Astrid, Twindly’s CEO, is very well known around here, maybe you’re curious about the person who writes a lot of the blogposts – me. Also, I’m nosy myself and love reading these kind of posts (fun fact #1!). So, here’re 25 totally random facts about me. Some are makeup related, some not.READ MORE

Spring glow makeup tutorial

Paola’s makeup tutorial: Spring 2016 trends – peachy and glowy!

As both Astrid and I had a lot on our respective plates during the last weeks (moving to Shanghai on my part), the blog unfortunately had to go and hibernate for a bit. Fortunately though, the lovely Paola from The Beauty Report offered to step in today and has a wonderful spring tutorial for your viewing pleasure. Go out and check her blog for more beauty goodness – you won’t be disappointed!READ MORE

Ask the expert: Die Parfum-Ausgabe

In unserer neuen Reihe ‚Ask the expert’ werden wir uns für Euch von Zeit zu Zeit mit Experten zusammensetzten, um sie mit Fragen zu löchern. Wir planen aufregende Themen! Diese Ausgabe befasst sich mit Parfum. Die meisten von uns werden eines tragen, vielleicht auch mehrere Flaschen zu Hause stehen haben, aber ganz ehrlich, zumindest für mich und Astrid ist Parfum immer die vernachlässigte Stiefschwester von Makeup. Wir haben uns deshalb mit Louce  und Ronin von Parfumo getroffen und sie zu allem befragt, was man über Parfum wissen sollte. (Die englische Fassung des Interviews findet Ihr hier!)READ MORE

Ask the expert – the perfume edition

We’ve got a new interview series! We’ll be sitting down with beauty experts to get all the answers for you! Some exciting topics are planned (just sayin!). This edition is all about perfume. Most of us wear it, maybe even have some bottles at home – but for both Astrid and me perfume always comes last behind makeup, skincare, and nailpolish. So we met up with Louce and Ronin from Parfumo and asked a lot of questions about perfume and things a perfume newbie should know. (Find the interview in German here!)READ MORE

Twindlytuesday: Three team members, one city

Twindlytuesday… two favourite looks!

Last week something really unusual happened – Astrid and I met in person to plan things for twindly, catch up and geek out about makeup. While we do that all the time via skype and various messenger apps, it’s really rare for us to meet in person, because we live quite far away from each other. So, what could be more fun than doing our makeup together and going for something really different that what we’re normally doing, we thought. What did we do then?!READ MORE
