My everyday makeup routine

Foundation


For foundation I'm using the Wake Me Up Foundation by Rimmel London in the shade 100 Ivory. I like to use one pump of this on my whole face. I'm first applying one pump one the back of my hand and then I like to work it in with the Beauty Blender. It gives a really healthy glow to your face and has a medium high coverage that can be build up.

Concealer


For Concealer I'm using the Liquid Camouflage Cream by Catrice Cosmetics in the shade 005 Light Natural. I'm applying it straight under my eyes to cover up all the dark circles and then I'm working it in with my Beauty Blender as well. It's a really light color so it's perfect for pale skin tones. It also has a high coverage.


To cover up breakouts or redness that may still show through my foundation, I'm using the Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream in the shade 010 Ivory. I'm applying it on the areas where I need it with a concealer brush and then blending it in with the Beauty Blender. This concealer has a really high coverage.

Powder

To set my base I'm using the Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder by Catrice Cosmetics in the shade 010 Translucent. I'm applying it with a brush on my whole face to set my foundation and concealer.

Eyeshadow Base

As an eyeshadow base I'm using the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage Concealer in the shade 020 Light Beige. I put this straight on my eyelid and I like to blend it in with my fingers. 

Eyeliner

I sometimes wanna go for a more dramatic look, so I'm using the Gel Liner Long Lasting by Manhattan in black. I'm usually creating a little wing using an eyeliner brush. 

Eyebrows

For my brows I'm using the Eyebrow Stylist by Essence in the shade 001 Blonde. I put it on my whole brows and then brushing over my brows with a little eyebrow brush to make the color apply more naturally. 

Mascara

To finish off my look I'm using the Glam & Doll Mascara Waterproof by Catrice Cosmetics in black. It really defines the lashes, gives volume and is really really black.

Trying American burgers in Germany



                                                 Roadhouse - American Diner

Are Germans able to cook American food? -Yes, they are! Or at least, sometimes.

When I first went to the U.S in 2010, the number one thing that I realized is how different the food is from Germany. I went to this Diner and ate a burger. It was so good that I tried to find a restaurant in Germany where the burgers are just as good as in America. So, wherever I could I ate burgers, but I couldn't find great restaurants.

But a few years later, when I visited my family, I drive past an American Diner. It was Halloween which isn't really celebrated in Germany. I decided to go and eat in this Diner. Every worker wore a really well done and creepy costume. I've barely seen something like this before in Germany. So they brought me this burger and it was so good, literally a food porn. I've never eaten such a good burger in Germany. I went there more than once now and ate burgers. 

But...I guess American burgers are still a little bit better...

About me and my blog :)

Hello there, it's me Johanna!

I'm 14 years old and I'm from Germany. I love dancing, snowboarding and traveling. I'm also a huge book and movie lover (I really like horror movies). I'm a Freshman and when I'm not studying for school, dancing, working out or eating, I love watching Netflix. My favorite TV shows are Pretty Little Liars, Bones, American Horror Story and Grey's Anatomy. Well, enough about me, because you are probably only here because of my blog. So I hope you'll like it. :)

About my blog

I made this blog just for fun. So don't call me "too young" or anything. I'm not here to design the perfect blog, I'm here to share my experiences with people and create a blog I like for myself. I'll share lifestyle things, my makeup and fashion favorites and my vacations. 

What can you expect from my blog?

Well, besides sharing experiences in restaurants or things I like, this will mainly be a travel blog. But since I can't travel all the time because of school, I couldn't do a travel blog itself. It would be too inactive.

Next stops?


In April 2017, I'll go to London with my best friend.

In summer 2017 I'll go to Berlin with my class. I'll get a lot of footage from there, because we will visit so many touristic places. You'll get to see restaurants, tourist attractions and you'll hear the opinion of someone whose hometown has a population of 11,000 and whose next class trip city has a population of more than 3,000,000.

In late summer/autumn 2017 I might go to Canada for three months and visit a high school there because I got nominated for a scholarship!


So...stay tuned!

My Holi Festival Of Colors experience

Holi Festival Of Colors? -What is that?

The Holi Festival Of Colors is a traditional festival from India and it's one of the oldest festivals in the world. It's celebrated every year in March. 
You don't have to celebrate it in India, even though I think it would be the best country to celebrate it. Every hour all the guests take place on a huge square and after a countdown everyone throws packages with colored powder in the air. The festival tours all over the world and usually comes to big and major cities in each country (you can check up on tour dates and tickets online). This festival has the same expiration everywhere.


My experience

A few weeks ago the festival came to my city and I went there with a few of my friends. The festival started at 12pm and ended at 10pm. I personally think the tickets were pretty expensive with being something like 16 euros. Also each powder package costed 2.50 euros. Six dj's played their mashups during the festival.
 Every hour we got called to take place in front of the stage and after a 10-second countdown everyone threw their packages with the powder in the air. I highly recommend to wear mouth and eye protection because when everyone throws their packages around, it's almost like a wall of powder builds up around you. For some seconds you can't see anything. Then, after a few more seconds when the powder isn't flying around anymore, everyone next to you is completely colored with green, blue, pink, orange and purple powder. Everyone in this crowd was smiling, laughing and dancing. The whole atmosphere was really relaxed and peaceful. 

Can you wash the powder out of all your clothes?

You can easily remove the powder from your skin and hair with soap and warm water. After one hour in the washing machine my skin toned shorts are completely clean but after the same time of being in the washing machine, my white shirt has a grayish and blueish glow to it. I'd still recommend wearing light colored clothes, since the powder pops more on lighter colors than on dark colors.

My conclusion

The Holi Festival Of Colors is definetly worth an experience and so so so much fun! If you have the chance to attend it, then do it.
     
                     See you soon guys, all the love
