Who am I?

Hi there!

My name is Mariam. I live in the Netherlands (since 2006), genetically speaking I am Armenian, but I was born in Bulgaria. I like to think of myself as a citizen of the world 🙂

I am married (to a hopeless case of a gamer…if you know what TF2 stands for, high five!). I also have an unhealthy love affair with our cat, Bruce (Wayne, yes, like Batman…you guessed right: he is a black kitty, and I love him to bits).

I have been in a long-term relationship with science and makeup since I was 15, with one as a job…the other as a hobby. I have a PhD in the biomedical sciences and still work in academic research.

Generally, I live and breathe bright colours and am obsessed with eyeshadows. That’s not to say, I don’t enjoy my fair share of all other beauty-related products. I am particularly drawn to indie brands and love discovering new ones. I also write about and use budget brands. You will not really find high-end products on my blog, so if that’s something you are into, then you are at the wrong address. Nothing wrong with them, just not my thing.

I hope you have fun!

P.S. In case you’d like to contact me: longlivemakeup@yahoo.com

  1. Hi Mariam,
    Like your video, but how do you find this Indie gorgeous make up? via internet? in pharmacies? how do you spot the different brands that exist?

    • Hi Liliana!

      Thank you for stopping by and yaay to liking my first video :D! Most indie brands are available only through online stores. To be honest, I have also found them mostly through watching youtube videos of fellow makeup addicts…I especially enjoy the videos of the Biohazardous Beauty, because she uses a lot of indie brands too. And, of course through blogs, which I stumbled upon randomly.

    • Благодаря ти, мила!!! Аз съм чистокръвна арменка от София, да 🙂 хаха Половинката все ме бъзика как някой ден ще прекъсне арменската линия с неговите плебейски босненски гени 😀

      Thank you!!! ❤ Yes, pure blood Armenian.

      • Ох, извинявай, “Armenian” съм го прочела като “American”. Знам, че си арменка, че си от България, но реших, че си родена в Америка и по паспорт американка – направо гражданин на света!
        Sorry, that’s my mistake!

      • Е, това нямаше да е лошо, но не :)! Паспортът ми все още е БГ. Нооо това не ми пречи да се чувствам като гражданин на света ;).
