Honest About Beauty


I'm a 27 year old blogger and vlogger born and raised in Belgium, living in the capital of Europe, Brussels. The name of this blog Jolien Nathalie is my birth name and is pronounced 'Yolin Natalie'. It's Dutch, which is my mother tongue, and one of the three official languages spoken in Belgium. Language and writing have been a passion of mine since early childhood and I've been very lucky to have learned four more languages throughout my life so far: French, English, Italian and of course Beauty!

My website is a place where I love to unleash my thoughts about my struggle with depression, anxiety, being a highly sensitive person and share my interest in budget beauty and makeup. By keeping my blog in English I hope to connect with people from all over the world, not only to satisfy my international spirit but also to keep my language skills on top of their game.

I post articles 3 times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The subjects of those articles generally include a makeup review, a personal post and a random, more general, post about beauty. Every Saturday at 6.00am CET there's a new video live on my beauty channel youtube.com/JolienNathalie with the main topic being budget makeup and beauty. If you have any requests, recommendations or topics you would like me to cover or write about feel free to let me know in the comments!

If you enjoy my work, the biggest way you can support me is by liking, commenting, sharing and subscribing to my website and beauty channel through Youtube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I always check out the blogs and social media profiles of people who leave genuine feedback and I try to get back to everyone as much as possible. If you'd like to know what I do with my life besides blogging you can always add me on Snapchat
