Five reasons to choose short hair in 2016

The new year couldn’t start without a little look change. It isn’t a radical change like last year, but, truth be told, I ended up wishing short hair like my son. I always wanted this type of hairstyle and I don’t regret taking this step. Lots of my friends ask me if it’s easier or more complicated to maintain this kind of hairstyle. So, I thought of 5 reasons why should get a short hairstyle. I style it in 5 minutes. Don’t imagine that I don’t need to go the hairdresser… But not so often as I did when I had long hair. And, thank God, it’s very good, because in those hours I spent at the hairdresser, now I get work...

At what age do we fell the best in our skin?

At what age do we fell the best in our skin? A lot of women avoid telling their age and I don’t understand why. From experience I know that, as we get older, we get more confident, more aware of our qualities, so more free. Recently I found a photo of myself from 7-8 years ago in which I was wearing a dress I still have in my closet. No comment about how I looked back then and what attitude and style I had. On my birthday, I told myself I should be auto-ironic and to compare my youth ages and the 35 years I make today. The conclusions I reached after this review (some of them I knew long time ago) 1. Money doesn’t...

Brow mapping & how to shape your eyebrows

Thin or natural eyebrows? I’m  pretty sure that the vast majority will say natural. The thin eyebrows trend, overly plucked is long gone and now natural eyebrows are popular.  I've never been  a fan of the very thin eyebrows trend, I really tried all sorts of techniques like castor oil, and semi- permanent tattoo,  of which now I think that made look very tough (tougher than I seem now J). I will not tell you that my tattoo faded and I reddish eyebrows. A year ago I discovered a new technique which I liked because it doesn’t use tweezers that much. I have already talked about the Benefit Brow bars here and how you can have perfect eyebrows.  What I want to show...

Fall Winter Mac Makeup Trends

Photography and video by Iuliana Popescu A couple of months ago I had the pleasure to directly interact with two senior make-up artists, who presented the tendencies for fall/winter 2015/2016. Netta Szekely and Alexandra Spyrydopolou made live demonstrations, made us familiar with the newest products from Mac Cosmetics, the company in which they work, and answered us a series of questions. The best part was a personalized make-up, made by Netta. Of course that in the two hours when we were together we talked about makeup and about personal things. I tried, besides stealing working techniques, to find our more about what modern, actual make-up means. I tried to show you as much as possible from our long conversation, and the applying techniques are...

10 rules efficient weight loss

I was telling you last week that somehow I managed to gain five kilograms because of my chaotic program from the last months. But now I started an intensive weight losing programme about which I will keep you posted on the blog.

At least two cardio trainings every week, on the treadmill or outside. Two sessions of...

How I gained 5 kg

I know that some of you will say that it's not so much, but others will understand when I say I want to get back fast to the kg of last year. That's because kg don't show off where we want them, but where they want and for me, the troubled areas are the abs and the waistline. I was really amused when some time ago  a tabloid had a misunderstanding about my  belly; more exactly if it's fat or I will have a little cute baby. No, I'm not pregnant, it's just a layer of fat which I'm decided to eliminate fast. How? I will tell you next week, but first, I will tell you how I got it. -long rides and...

Water-resistant makeup

My dears, I hope you had the chance to take a vacation, because I have two more months to wait. If you are in summer relaxation mood, like any fashionista you need a proper outfit. I suggest a colorful swimsuit ( bikini or one piece), a wide-brimmed hat, sun creams (I Love Lancaster) and of course a proper makeup for the beach. A while ago, I had the chance to try Makeup Forever Aqua , a special range of waterproof and heat resistance products and today I want to tell you more after testing them. Besides the fact the range has gorgeous shades, I think it’s fantastic to go for a swim, get wet, and look flawless. I couldn’t take a photo after...

How to have perfect eyebrows

Photography and video by Iuliana Popescu Darlings, today we continue the tutorials in collaboration with Sephora and I’m going to show how to achieve perfect eyebrows. First, what kind of eyebrows do you consider perfect? Thin or thick eyebrows? I really like the shape I have right now, though, I’d love a bit more fullness. This method I discovered from Benefit (way before this tutorial) seems to do this exact thing; it brings definition to my form and when they are dyed they become more intense. So, let me tell you more about this procedure, even though you’ll see it in the video also. Benefit created this personalized method to pamper your eyebrows and pink brow bars where this procedure is done. In...
