• Clarisonic at Sephora Romania

    Yesterday, before the launch event of Clarisonic at Sephora Romania, I posted a getting ready kind of photo and I immediately got a couple messages asking for more details.
    Well, ladies, it’s true! Clarisonic is coming to Romania, exclusively at Sephora, starting February 9. Goodie!
    For those you aren’t familiar with the brand and their products, Clarisonic is developed by a team of engineers and entrepreneurs in Seattle, Washington, and combines proprietary technology with a revolutionary vision to redefine skin care, embodied by a line of brushes.

    Innovation: the Clarisonic Pro Sonic Skin Cleansing System was initially developed for skin care professionals to use in treatment.  Converging products work on the surface with technology that goes beneath the skin’s surface to beautifully transform its texture, reducing the appearance of pore size and creating a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion. The brand’s patented sonic technology works with skin’s natural elasticity, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical treatments.
    There will be three brushes available at Sephora, Aria, Plus and Mia 2.
    I have my eye on Mia 2, a Facial Sonic Cleansing Brush. Mia  is clinically proven to cleanse skin six times better than hands alone, oscillates back and forth at a sonic frequency that produces over 300 movements per second, which gently extracts impurities from skin and pores. A cleanse so effective that skin is more receptive to creams, serums and moisturizers. I’ve seen the demonstration and a couple of before and after pictures at the event. So yeah, I think Mia is a keeper. I just need to have a little patience.
  • Make-up makeover aka the selfies post

    Last week, I had the awesome chance to get a make-up makeover from Miss Koko. Even though, I went at her place to help her with other stuff, outfits & co, btw she’s in Stockholm right now, killing it at fashion week, I ended up with a makeover. But damn, I look ahhmazing! Sorry, I’m not sorry.
    It’s amazing how people have so much talent…  Koko’s so talented & such a lovely person,  I’m so happy and proud to be her friend. I just told her to make me look awesome, more than usual that is, and she did! See what she used to do all that magic, on her blog here.
    Now, I need to go unpack, weekend getaways are fun besides the packing/unpacking part. Meh.
  • Be Sleek this season / Au Naturel

    How? Quite simple! With Sleek  Au Naturel make up palette.  Twelve shades of  gorgeous super-pigmented, longlasting, mineral based eyeshadow. Now, you know that I have two left hands when it comes to make up, but since I got the Sleek palette I used it for five looks. 

    More than the last months combined. 
    Why? Because the colors are beautiful, perfect for ladies on the go with not so much time and let’s say skill also. You don’t have to be a pro to get a fab look using the Au Naturel palette.
    For the look bellow, after foundation and primer, used Nougat as a base, then Taupe & Regal for the crease & lid, finished it with Noir for a bit of contouring. It’s super easy to achieve!

    Swatches… didn’t get the hang of these yet!
    Another selfie with another look also with taupe, which is my favorite shade of the bunch, makes my eyes pop!
    Ladies reading from RO, get the palette on Make up Shop, it’s a steal and makes a great gift. Ladies from the Uk & co, check it out here.

  • OP: Minx it up

    It’s curios how these days I can’t even follow my own advice of post consistency. 
    A couple of weeks ago, on a sunny Wednesday, I had a total pampering day, hair, make up and nails for Elle Style Awards at Beauty District, powered by Minx Romania.
    You know, how, almost always, I don’t like how my hair & make up is done in this kind of situations, well, this time, I absolutely loved it.  This sums up everything.
    The cherry on top, where my ahhmazing gold Minx nails, got so many compliments on them, they were done by Catalina Stoica and Anamaria Enache.
    Awesome do by Razvan Munteanu and make up by Mari.
    With my lovely Koko.
