Dolly Glossy Makeup for Valentine’s Day | Machiaj cu Aspect Dolly si Lucios

Hello gals! As you all know, a certain “special” day is coming and despite me being a single mademoiselle, for my own pleasure and as a gift  for my readers – I’ve decided to create a natural sort of soft glossy makeup that you can wear, single or not, for the 14th of February a.k.a. Valentine’s Day. Ready?

As I mentioned before, sometimes I skip on foundation, however, I am always doing a pre-makeup skin preparation – gentle wash followed by cream and then a light massage.

Moving on, I started with my eyes and applied a glossy base which is perfect for the shimmery pink eyeshadow that I used on top. As you can see, the end result looks a bit glossy and wet. I continued with a bit of a wing, nothing fancy, just to elongate the eyes and create a bit of a catty look. On the lower lids I used yellow shimmery eyeshadow and in the inner corners straight pink – to add a dolly vibe. A bit of mascara and that’s it for the eyes.

For the eyebrows I wanted a natural look so I traced few lines in the outer corner, using black and a purple-brown for the rest of the eyebrow. Then I took a brush and gently smoothed everything out.

For lips I layered matte pink with shimmery pink and then shimmery yellow on the centre.

Hair is a bit wavy, kept in a natural manner and styled on one side. To complete my dolly natural glossy look I chose to wear a red bead necklace choker.

I like the result, hope you like it too – maybe you decide to wear it AND please do celebrate yourself, single or not.

Buna fetelor! Dupa cum stiti, suntem in prag de Valentine’s Day, si desi traditional noi romanii sarbatorim “dragostea” de Dragobete, uite ca lumea poate avea “gusturi” diferite. Ca opinie personala, iubirea se poate sarbatori in fiecare zi daca ne tine, dar daca tot este oficiala treaba, m-am gandit sa-mi ofer mie si voua un machiaj dragalas si putin lucios/glossy taman bun de purtat, fie ca suntem single sau nu, de Valentin’s Day si/sau de Dragobete. Am vorbit mult, stiu, dar gata, sunt pregatita de atac!

Am inceput cu machiajul ochilor prin aplicarea unei baze mai unsuroase, special aleasa pentru fardul sidefat pe care l-am ales si care este intr-o nuanta deschisa de roz. Dupa am creat putina codita, nimic fancy, doar sa fie acolo pentru a-mi alungi ochii si a crea un aspect pisicesc. Pe ploapa inferioara am continuat cu un fard galben sidefat iar in coltul interior am aplicat fard cremos roz. Putin rimel si gata cu ochii!

Pentru sprancene am decis sa creez un aspect natural, fara linii vizibile de contur si am incercat sa evit aspectul de “umplut” – asa ca in loc sa le conturez, am ales sa trasez linii usoare in coltul exterior folosind un creion negru de sprancene. Am continuat cu fard intr-o nuanta de maro visiniu pentru a umple restul de spranceana. Dupa, cu o perie speciala, am imbinat nuantele acolo unde era nevoie.

Pentru a-mi completa machiajul cu aspect lucios/glossy am folosit pentru buze nuante asemanatoare cu cele folosite in machiajul ochilor. Ca ordine, am inceput cu un roz cremos peste care am adaugat un ruj sidefat roz. La final un pic de galben sidefat pe mijloc – si cam asta a fost tot.

Parul este aranjat natural pe o parte cu cateva bucle lejere. La final, ca accesoriu am ales un choker din margele rosii lucioase.

Sper sa va placa si vreau sa aud ca ati ales sa va celebrati, indiferent de situatia romantica! 

Chanel Couture SS 2017 Inspired Makeup & Hair

Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture for SS 2017 is happening this week and I’ve decided, for the very first time, to do an “inspired makeup”. My “muse” is the Chanel makeup from Chanel couture SS 2017 fashion show. Here I loved the metallic, silver and aluminium look and feel, a theme that gets to influence every aspect of the show and collection – including makeup. Here, the metallic look of the collection is found particularly in the eye makeup, with grey eyeshadow and a silvery metallic appearance for a highlighter – near the eyes, barely touching the cheekbone and sometimes in the inner corner of the eye.

As I was studying to recreate the look, it became very clear to me that everything in this makeup is kept at a minimum quantity – even the “life” in it. There is very little mascara, barely waking up the eye that looks lifeless and cold. Eyebrows are natural and where it is possible – bushy. Even the mouth, despite being nicely touched by shades of brown, orange and pinkish brown, looks cold and colorless.

To complete the look, in the show, hair is styled on one side and into a spiral on the back. For my short hair, I’ve decided for a low ponytail while styling everything else as in the show, with both sides slick and perfectly flat on the head.

How it felt: I definitely enjoyed doing this Chanel inspired makeup and hair, especially since I’ve never styled my hair this way. Fun times!

DIY: Masca Naturala De Fata Cu Efect Calmant

Inainte de a ma arunca in chestii “tehnice”, vreau sa-mi declar admiratia fata de voi fetelor – stiu ca va faceti fel si fel de masti cu diferite ingrediente NATURALE. Este de admirat si ma simt mandra de romancele mele.

Si acum, dupa mica mea declaratie, sa incep sa ma laud – da, chiar simt nevoia. Acum cateva zile mi-am propus sa-mi fac o masca mai “complexa” si am pus totul la cale in timpul dusului de dimineata, stiti voi, atunci cand mintea ta nu se mai opreste din vorbit. Asa ca am pus-o la treaba adevarata si m-am ales cu urmatorul plan:

Si acum vreau sa va zic putin despre fiecare ingredient in parte. Mierea de exemplu este ingredientul care va “lega” toate componentele, dar care si aluneca, pana ajunge jos, pe covor. Deci – fiti zgarcite.

Zatul l-am inclus deoarece este unul din ingredientele pe care le folosesc pe post de exfoliant. Despre zat stiu ca nu are nici o reactie adversa pielii, asa ca il folosesc cu placere.

Argila, urmatorul ingredient din lista, a mers minunat cu restul mastii. Am ales-o pentru calitatile ei (stim cat de buna este) SI pentru un pic de exfoliere mai “atenta”, fiind foarte fina in comparatie cu zatul de cafea.

Turmericul este ingredientul de final. Daca deja il folositi, stiti ca nu are reactii adeverse, este placut, natural, cu rezultate ok SI CA pateaza pielea. Iese, ce-i drept, dar este bine de stiut DINAINTE ca veti avea aceasta “surpriza”.


Masca a fost super bine primita de piele, si am simtit o binevenita senzatie de confort si relaxare pe durata purtarii si dupa. De incercat? ABSOLUT!


Pana la urmatorul articol, cu multa placere, a voastra G.I.
