More Glam than Traditional, as the makeup artist from MAC recommended me, the look she chose for me celebrating the launch of “Love by Design” movie, set me in a wonderful story with perfect skin, no signs of fatigue, with perfect contoured lines.
Well, yes, because let’s face it, we all have a different look with a good make up on. And when it’s done by someone who really knows the deal, then you really feel in Wonderland.
I learned a couple of years ago not to impose my opinions, but to listed carefully to the advices of professional make up artists, in order to get also at home the look I wish for. As much as I read and try to stay in touch with all the tips & tricks, they always have the best answer.
So, to get back to our story, a lot of people asked me about my look and the products that were used to get it, so here’s a list of what was applied to my face in order to complete my make up:
Make up base Prep + Prime Natural Radiance
Foundation Matchmaster 3
Blush Matte Bronze
Smuggler is the newest place to shop in Bucharest (Calea
Dorobanţilor 16), based on a mix and match clothing style, offering a young and fresh line from brands like Jack&Jones, Vero Moda, Selected Femme/Homme or Only.
With very affordable prices – been there, seen them, want some – I think it’s a must check if you’re from Bucharest or visiting, you’ll find for sure nice things to add to your wardrobe.
The brand offers 6 face creams, one body butter and an eye-cream, manufactured and based on combination of natural oils and their therapeutic effect.
I must say I don’t have the easiest the deal with face skin, so I was really curious to try this promising products. With all this back to basics trend, in an effort to apply mostly natural skin care products, I said why not?
I am now using a moisture for normal and dry skin, with Calendula oil and Q10. I really haven’t been using it for so long, a couple of days, but since my skin doesn’t feel bad at all.
I’m not pronouncing myself yet, but the start is pretty good!
As soon as the cold season starts, my 2 major problems come back: boots & coats.
And it’s really not my fault that each time I have to choose between so many lovely items I just cannot resist.
The Fall/Winter 2014-2015 season means lots of lovely coats, longer than the previous year, belted or not, but in a very “at ease” style.
The “robe” coats are one of my all-time favorite, basically because they look so nonchalant, but yet very chic – at least the way I see them.
It’s also time to remember the capes, that we wore last year and that are still highly appreciated this season as well.
Trends are once again debating between light shades and dark ones, both of them very appealing. The bright colors aren’t ignored, mostly the red tones.
I’ve made a selection of my favorites pieces, that are available now in stores. Choose your favorite and wear it with style!
When Cristina asked me to model for her collection, Decades, I was just about to say NO, when I realized it’s all about fronting your own fears. So i said Yes and joined the girls for a fashion show organized by Cristina for her own brand Potocaliu.
What you can see in the pictures bellow is collection imagined around the decades in fashion, from the ’50s to the 2000s. Each of the girls, happy Potocaliu customers had assigned a decade – I was the ’80s (that’s why you can see me wearing the MC Hammer pants, the over sized shoulders, the glittery jacket).
I must say that, with all the emotions we had, each of us, It really was a lot of fun! And for our first runway, I guess we did a pretty good job!
I find it somehow difficult to adjust to this lovely weather that’s going on outside, but then again it’s me and some other billion people…So instead of complaining about how sad life is, I guess a small September shopping tour wouldn’t hurt.
It’s been a slow ride until now, but this month begins showing its bad side and I do come to this that the summer romance is gone…(believe me, I know what I’m saying).
Anyway, this fall comes with some lovely outift ideas, with a more simple and clean style approach, very nice colors, elegant & stylish ones like dark green, dark blue, burgundy, etc.
I do love the mom jeans, the fluffy sweaters, the slip ons and the bootie-sandals, the over sized jackets…
So, this is my short September essentials list:
I’ve noticed that we all have some very strong shopping habits, focusing on 2-3 favorite brands. I for instance, I’m not that opened to new brands, that’s why I decided to tell you something about my discoveries while surfing the net or traveling.
Today I’ll tell you about a shoe brand I recently discovered, it’s called F-troupe, it’s an English brand, with very original shoe models.
Very different from what we are used with in Romania, I think they are pretty cool and so easy to wear, with a masculine touch, while with the right outfit, they can turn out quite feminine.
You’ve got there some very nice sneakers, slip ons in tweed, brogues and oxfords shoes, in a very English elegant style.
Even if I’m trying all kinds of new beauty products, I am pretty constant when it comes to my favorite skin and body care products.
I find something that I love and just stick to it, for a looong, loong, time. It’s the same thing with all that contains shea extract. I’ve tried almost anything, from no name brands, to Body Shop and Sabon items.
I recently found a new brand that’s specialized in body care products - Fruit Goodness- new on the Romanian market,but with a history in UK – and chose for the moment the Shea shower gel. Cause it’s still summer, I also gave in to a raspberry body butter, with a very nice perfume, little fresher than the Shea, ideal for this time of year. I had to try also the Coconut body spray, this being my second favorite flavor, and love the spray version of its package.
One of my biggest problems at the beginning of every season is the huge shopping list ahead. I don’t – obviously – buy everything I want, but I always set a number of items that top my wish list and I try to buy them.
Not only that I am addicted to shoes, by I have a new obsession – matching shoes. This trend makes me shop all kinds of matching flats & heels, like these beauties I just found in the new Fall/Winter 2014 Musette collection.
My addiction to black & white outfits will definitely need a this pair of slip-ons and stilettos, that will ease my day-to-night outfit decisions.
