Growing up in Germany, I just recently immigrated to the US (2008) and ...got married:-). Yes, I followed the love of my life and..oh, I forgot, the other love of my life is MAKEUP! Anything beauty related. Magazines or gossip, blogs or...MEGSMAKEUP! I truly love this site, I fell in love AGAIN...oh, that's 3 times now, lol. Guess I better stop...I'm thinking too much.

|My Beauty Secret:||
I'd love to share any beauty secret if it helps others:-D!
I would say I got a lot of routine in putting make-up on over the years, so including hair it takes me about 25-30 minutes to get ready. I have to be somewhat careful with putting on my eye make-up as I'm wearing contacts (since I'm 14 though;-)...).
My routine starts off with getting my face CLEAN, including cleansing gel-astringent-and in the evening before going to bed it includes eye make-up remover. Very unspectacular, I would say. I use mostly Neutrogena products for skincare.
|My Horror Story:||
Being out in public and having left my make-up bag at home;-))....I'm a touch up freak, lol.
Another REAL horror story: A perm when I was 18. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm glad I don't remember either. Neither me nor my parents have pictures whatsoever of this time period (until it grew out abit and the curls were really curls and not...rotini...yes, the pasta look), haha.

I try to be myself.
I absolutely love this powder because Cover Girl is by far the only brand I know (by now) which came out with a VERY FAIR / light shade of pressed powder. All other drugstore brands I compared don't even come close and believe me, with having a very fair skin tone like me, it's HARD to find the right powder and makeup (from the same line) not looking overdone at the same time. The powder has a medium-high coverage and stays on mostly all day (if used in combination with the makeup, you should have no probs), even on oily skin. Price is cheap/affordable and almost every drugstore has it:-).
This is one heaven-sent hair product I just can't live without! It's a kind of leave-in treatment you use after washing your hair. It makes your hair supersoft, easy to comb and manage as well it does add super shine to it!! What is a big plus, it also protects your hair from heat damage when you blow-dry it. The scent is fabulous too and lingers in your hair all day.It belongs to my daily hair-routine and I can't live without it:-).
This is one of my alltime ultimate necessary basics *lol* I just can't live without!! Because I love to experiment with eyeshadow alot, this is a must for a stay-put look which lasts the whole day. No matter if I'm having just a "regular" day or if I'm going out at night..this primer holds its promises and keeps eyeshadow in place all day! NO creasing or smearing..a makeup-lover's dream come true:-D!
