• 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.

  • Braun Silk-épil 7 review & giveaway

    As I promised last week, here’s the review and giveaway of the new Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry epilator.  Removes the shortest hair.  We will see!
    Don’t know if I  told you, been blogging for so many years that I sometimes forget, that I don’t really use epilators, just once in a while,  because I have a super sensitive skin and my legs get all bloated and red, And not for an hour or two, but for days! So, it’s only wax & shaving blades here. Though, I did own another epilator besides Braun Silk-epil 7.
    Not ready to post pictures with my hairy legs and armpits on the blog, but I’ll tell how everything got down.
    On my legs I used it exactly after one week of shaving them, the hair was quite short and I was a bit afraid of the pain and redness. Like I said in the last post, the product can be used under the shower, so I did. I’m not going to tell you that it didn’t hurt, because it did but not so much as usual. It indeed removes really short hair and what strikes me the most, no redness and bloated legs! Yaaay!
    Now, for the armpits, used after one week and about two or three days of waxing, so again, the hair was really short. Silk- epil 7 has a different cap for underarm and bikini line epilation. Again, removed the little bastards, with just a bit of redness that went away in a couple of hours. 
    But why if I’ve let my hair grow a bit more? Worry less, another awesome aspect that I love about Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry is that it has shaver head also. You know, it’s winter, hair might grow unseen and unnoticed to a point. You can use the shaver to trim it to the ideal length of epilation. 
    It’s a great product for people with sensitive skin!
    And now for the giveaway!
    I have a Braun Silk-épil 7 for you too my darlings, what you have to do to have it?
    Well, live a comment and tell me a funny story about epilation/ waxing/ shaving  if you don’t have any just tell me why you want the new Silk – epil 7. That’s obvious, but still!
    For extra entries follow the blog with bloglovin’ here or like it on facebook. Share the giveaway, you know the drill!
    Ends next Thursday, good luck!
