Nails of the day: Pink, ribbons and rhinestones

Daca postarea trecuta a fost un machiaj pentru provocarea Never too much sparkle!: Living doll, astazi m-am hotarat sa asortez machiajul de "papusa" cu unghii pe acelasi ton: roz sidefat cu o fundita rosie si cate o pietricica colorata. 

The latest post was about a makeup made for Never too much sparkle!: Living doll, so today I decided to match that makeup to some pretty-doll-theme nails: 
pearl-pink base with a red ribbon and a colored rhinestone.

Purple eyes and red lips

Hello ladies!

Acest look a fost creeat pentru provocarea saptamanii pe grupul Never too much sparkle!: Living doll. Cine ma cunoaste stie ca am o slabiciune pentru culoarea violet, mai ales in cazul machiajului. In plus parerea mea este ca aceasta culoare prinde pe oricine indiferent de culoarea ochilor sau a parului. 

This look was created for Never too much sparkle's group challenge of the week: Living doll. Those who know me are aware of my weakness for purple, especially in the case of makeup. Furthermore, in my opinion it's a color who suites anyone, regardless of their hair or eye color.

Reversed blue smokey + nails

Astazi am recreeat lookul pe care l-am purtat ieri la facultate deoarece am constatat ca a avut succes in randul colegelor mele (thank you ladies). Este un machiaj extrem de usor de realizat insa de mare efect. Acest look alaturi de manichiura a fost creeat pentru propunerea saptamanii din cadrul grupul Never too much sparkle! : Totally Tubular 80's!

Today I recreate yesterday's look because I noticed it had great success among my colleagues (thank you ladies for the compliments). It's a very easy to do makeup but has great impact. This look among with the manicure was made for Never too much sparkle! group's challenge of the week: Totally Tubular 80's!

De asemenea am avut parte de o plimbare foarte draguta printr-un parc unde am facut si cateva poze.

I also took a walk in a park and took a few photos, so less talking, more showing :D

 1. Aplicati creion albastru pe linia genelor inferioare / apply a blue eyeliner on the lower lashline
 2. Intindeti creionul cu o pensula sau un buretel / smudge the eyeliner using a brush
 3. Aplicati fard albastru peste creion / apply blue eyeshadow over the pencil
 3. Aplicati o nuanta mai deschisa de albastru in coltul intern al ochiului si sub fardul mai inchis / aplly a lighter shade of blue in the inner corner of the eye and bellow the darker shade
 3. Aplicati eyeliner lichid - tutorial aici / Aplly black liquid eyeliner - how to apply liquid liner
 2. Aplicati mascara / Apply black mascara
 All done!






Have a great weekend!

Hot Trend: lace & veils dresses

Dress: TinaR (Romanian Brand)
Cu siguranta ati observat acest trend atat in magazine cat si pe strada, alaturi de moda culorilor neon. Personal prefer acest trend celui neon din simlul fapt ca, fiind o fire destul de timida, ma reprezinta mai bine decat culorile tari.
O rochie din voal cu dantela este destul de usor de asortat, astfel ca poate fi purtata atat ziua, asortata la o jacheta casual din piele si o pereche de platforme cat si seara, la o ocazie speciala cu o pereche de pantofi inalti, o geanta sclipitoare si un blazer elegant. Puteti gasi in magazine tot felul de modele si culori si  cu siguranta veti gasi ceva care sa va placa.

You probably noticed this trend both in shops and on the street along with the neon color trend. I personally prefer this trend to neon colors because I'm kind of a more shy personality and these clothes represent me better.
A veil and lace dress can be easily worn both during the day-time with a casual leather jacket and a pair or platforms and during the evening or even at a special occasion with a nice pair of shoes, a clutch and an elegant blazer. You can find lots of designs and colors in stores which can definitely satisfy your tastes.

Day:  Pull and bear Dress and bracelet,H&M jacket and bag,ASOS platforms earrings,

One of the makeup's biggest challenges: Eyelining

Buna fetelor!
Am fost intrebata de-a lungul timpului de nenumarate ori cum folosesc tusul si cum reusesc sa fac codita aceea subtire de cat-eye. Ei bine, secretul consta, din pacate in exercitiu. Eu am inceput sa folosc eyelinerul de acum vreo 5-6 ani si de atunci tot mi-am perfectionat tehnica. Am folosit de-a lungul timpului mai multe tipuri de linere:  cel tip carioca, tip sticluta cu pensula sau pensula cu varf tare si mai nou cel gel / crema / solid si uneori am folosit drept eyeliner fard de pleoape intins cu o pensula unghiulara umeda sau creion intins cu pensula.

Hello girls!
I've been asked numerous times how do I apply the liquid eyeliner and how I manage to do that thin cat-eye liner ending. Well, unfortunately the secret lies within exercise. I've started using liquid eyeliner about 5-6 years ago and I've been perfecting my technique ever since. Over time I used a bunch of different types of eyeliners: the pencil liquid eyeliner, bottled liquid liner with smooth brush or hard pointy ending, gel/cream liner or sometimes eyeshadow applied with a wet angled liner brush.

Acum folosesc in paralel 2 tipuri de eyelinere: cel lichid (Flormar liquid eyeliner)  si cel gel / crema (Essence gel eyeliner). Diferentele dintre aceste 2 tipuri de linere sunt semnificative, atat prin modul de aplicare cat si prin felul in care se comporta de-a lungul zilei.

Nowadays I am using 2 types of eyeliner: the liquid one (Flormar liquid eyeliner)  and the gel / cream type (Essence gel eyeliner). There are considerable differences between these 2, both through the way I apply them and through the way they resist during the day.

Pros and cons:
 Flormar liquid eyeliner
Pros:
- pot creea linii subtiri si bine definite / I can make thin and well defined lines with it
- rezista pe perioada zilei si nu se intinde datorita secretiei de sebum /  it is very resistant during the day
- este pigmentat / it's very pigmented
- se aplica usor cu putina experienta / It can be easily applied but it requires experince
- tubuletul contine destul de mult produs astfel ca dupa aproape un an de folosit de 3-4 ori / saptamana inca nu da semne de terminare / the tube contains enough product in it for more than an year if you use it 3-4 times a week
 - nu s-a uscat produsul in interiorul tubuletului / it hasn't dried up inside

Cons:
- este complicat de utilizat pentru incepatoare / it's complicated to use if not experienced
- periuta trebuie curatata de exces inainte de utilizare pentru a nu curge / the brush has to be firmly cleaned off the excess before using so it will not drip
- se sterge usor in prezenta apei / a lacrimilor / it has no resistance against tears or water




Essence gel eyeliner
 Pros:
- este foarte usor de aplicat pentru incepatoare / it's easier to apply if not experienced
- se aplica foarte bine cu o pensula unghiulara / you can easily apply it with an angled eyeliner brush
- se pot creea linii mai groase cu ajutorul lui / you can create thick lines with it
- rezista la apa / lacrimi / it is very resistant to tears or water

Cons:
- datorita ambalajului exista riscul de a se usca / because of the packaging it can easily dry up.
- nu rezista pe parcursul zilei si se intinde datorita secretiei de sebum / it has little resistance during the day and it can smudge on the lid
- nu pot face o codita atat de subtire ca la cel lichid / you can't do a thin cat-eye line with it as with the liquid one
- se demachiaza destul de greu / it isn't as easy to remove
- in cantitate mica nu este atat de pigmentat ca cel lichid / in a small quantity it isn't as pigmented as the liquid liner





Cum se aplica eyelinerul / How to apply the eyeliner

1. Trasati o linie de la jumatatea ochiului spre exterior
1. Draw a line from the midlle of the upper lid to the exterior

2. Trasati o linie oblica in continuarea genelor de pe pleoapa inferioara
2. Draw a tilted line that follows the lower lid's lashline
3. Umpleti spatiul dintre cele 2 linii
3. Fill the gap between the 2 lines
4. Trasati linia dintre coltul intern al ochiului si jumatatea acestuia
4. Draw the line between the inner corner of the eye and the half of the lid
                                                                              All done!


Have a great day!!

The beautiful days, the beautiful smiles...

Astazi a fost o zi de-a dreptul superba in Bucuresti, numai buna de iesit in parc la o plimbare! Vremea frumoasa m-a dus cu gandul la verdeata, la copaci inmuguriti la verde proaspat!

What a beautiful day was today in Bucharest! A great day for a walk in a park. This beautiful sunny day led my thoughts at blooming tress and fresh-green grass!

Din nou am apleat la culoarea verde, de data asta intr-o varianta mai soft si cu putin sclipici.

Once again I made a greenish makeup,this time in a softer manner and with a pinch of silver glitter.
