Where would we be without our beauty bloggers? By now, it poses a real challenge to think back to times when we couldn’t rely on a few taps on our smartphones to find a world of ideas and suggestions waiting for us. Now we can choose between so many beautiful bloggers, each with their individual style, who inspire us in so many ways every day. At the same time, these girls make us laugh and feel like they’re just like the girl next door.

We want to introduce you to one of our favorites, 23-year-old Erna Hermez. The Aramean beauty blogger is known as Merna Mariella online and inspires us and 34.000 other followers on Youtube with her videos. The trained legal assistant also runs her blog merna-mariella.de and uses Facebook as well as Instagram.

The successful beauty queen from Munich

Merna’s success comes from being a role model to many of her followers. Based in Munich, her famous “get ready with me” videos show step-by-step how she gets ready for all sorts of occasions, explains in her tutorials the basics of her personal makeup routine, and introduces the newest must-haves to her audience. While she is inspiring and has crazy ideas sometimes, everything she shares with us is easy to copy and applicable to us.

Merna is a Christian Iraqi who had to flee the country with her family at the age of six, due to religious persecution. In Germany, she finished high school and trained to become a legal assistant in Munich. As she grew up, curious friends and even strangers often complimented her about her make-up and asked for advice. During her apprenticeship, she then decided to create her own Youtube channel, and we are happy she did! It’s hard to imagine the German beauty blogger scene without her. If you need advice on wearable glamour make-up, look no further and check out Merna’s channel.
