What I think about Athleisure Beauty while I Run 10K

Athleisure beauty. What is it really? As a runner and a beauty junkie, I’m intrigued. Vogue magazine breaks down the trend quite nicely here.

It’s an interesting trend, a very different pull from the all organic, all natural beauty. What it is essentially, is makeup you can wear during a workout.

Then the questions is: should we wear makeup during a workout? Well, you know my stance with the general theme: Wear whatever you want (or don’t) and rock it!READ MORE

beauty fun facts

Beauty fun facts!

I don’t know about you, but I always get a huge kick out of a good fun fact. Maybe it’s just because I’m a geek and love geeky stuff, but I just love to know when yoghurt was invented and why the Romans print SPQR on all their gully covers. And because we’re all beauty geeks around here, I want to share asome totally important beauty knowledge with you every once in a while, so you can blurt out at parties with what the old Egyptians dyed their hair. Fun, right? Let’s dive right in.READ MORE

March favourites: beauty and books!

We at twindly HQ have been beauty shopping! (Blame it on this spring feeling when you just *need* something new after the long winter to perk you up!)

Hakuhodo i-series review

Two weeks, two brushes: Hakuhodo i-series

Let’s carry on with our little “two weeks, two brushes” series, shall we? I got two new Hakuhodo brushes the last time I was in Singapore. Because… well, who can restrain themselves when standing in front of a Hakuhodo counter? Not me! This time, both brushes from the i-series and I had a somehow rocky start. Here’s my Hakuhodo i-series review: An in-depth look at both eyeshadow (i-127) and blush (i-110) brush from the synthetic Hakuhodo brush line.

January beauty favourites

January beauty favourites feat. makeup, skincare and perfume!

April is the cruellest month? I always wondered about that sentiment. Can there be a crueller month than January? It’s cold, we had to put the Christmas decoration away and I don’t know about you, but I’m totally broke after the Christmas and sale extravaganza that was December. So, what’s better than an infusion of cheap, colourful and blingy makeup into your life? While this works for me, Astrid is more about the feel-good vibes of amazing skincare and a good perfume. Which camp do you belong to?READ MORE

are ColourPop cosmetics good

ColourPop revisited – Gel eyeliner, blushes, satin liquid lipsticks and matte eyeshadows

ColourPop was one of my major disappointments of 2016. I didn’t like the products I tried from them, and then they made an appearance in the category ‘worst customer service of 2016’ in my best of 2016 post. Nevertheless, they offered free international shipping and suddenly, I wanted to give the products I hadn’t tried before a chance. So, the question is – are ColourPop cosmetics good? Those ones that aren’t hyped up liquid lipsticks and glittery eyeshadows? Millions of followers can’t be wrong, right?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

Hakuhodo brush review

Two weeks, two brushes: Hakuhodo brush review

Like I wrote in the first instalment of this little series (find it here), every time I get new brushes I test them thoroughly with every product I can think of to see with which they’re able to perform well. For two weeks, I use them every day when I do my makeup and tell you all about it. This time, I tried and tested my first Hakuhodo brushes! Exciting!READ MORE
