Outfit post plus My beauty routine


Azi o sa vorbesc putin despre cum imi ingrijesc parul si pielea, dar si cateva cuvinte despre ce produse de machiaj folosesc. De-a lungul timpului am primit o multime de comentarii si emailuri extrem de dragute in care ma intrebati despre “secretele” mele insa am amanat sa-l scriu tocmai pentru ca nu am prea multe de spus. Adevarul este ca am avut noroc si am gene excelente cand vine vorba de piele. 
Este adevarat ca am probleme in alte parti:))) insa tenul nu a fost niciodata una dintele ele. Chiar si in adolescenta cand toti prietenii mei erau disperati si incercau toate produsele pentru acne si cosuri, eu aveam aceleasi ten curat si fara probleme. Mai mult decat atat, nu am folosit deloc machiaj sau creme de fata pana pe la 17 ani. Acum ritualul meu consta in demachiere in fiecare seara si aplicarea unei creme de fata usoare (intotdeauna). Nu folosesesc creme scumpe sau ceva in mod constant, in general cumpar ce-mi place pe moment (acum folosesc demachinat si tonic de la Garnier cu extract de struguri si crema Gerocossen cu miere si aloe vera si imi plac). O data pe saptamana imi aplic pe fata o crema abraziva fina, favorita mea este una de la Avon (Planet Spa cu ceai alb).
Nici cand vine vorba de machiaj nu ma complic foarte tare pentru ca am impresia ca fata mea arata mai bine cu un machiaj minimal. Uneori mi-ar placea sa incerc si look-uri mai elaborate, dar nu am timp si compensez cu accesorii de tot felul si outfituri colorate. Hainele sunt un teren cunoscut si familiar, ma imbrac in mai putin de 5 minute fara sa-mi pregatesc tinutele de cu seara, vine natural, cu machiajul  insa nu am rabdare (asta nu ma impiedica insa sa citesc cu mult interes blogurile de beauty si makeup si sa le admir pe fetele talentate care se ocupa de ele). Acestea fiind spuse o sa va povestesc totusi cam ce produse folosesc mai des. Pentru ca am cearcane  imi aplic putin fond de ten in fiecare zi, insa o sticluta de 30 ml imi ajunge mai mult de 6 luni (preferatul meu este Avon Calming Effects in nuanta Ivory). Celelalte doua produse care imi sunt oarecum indipensabile sunt: rimelul (am descoperit recent Loreal VolumissimeX5 Carbon Black si imi place foarte mult) si blush-ul pentru care am o pasiune nefireasca care la mine evolueaza in mod invariabil in colectionare, am multe blush-uri in  nuante calde de roz si peach, dar preferatul meu este Bourjois, nuanta Rose Eclat. De asemenea folosesc des tus negru (pe care am invatat sa-l aplic super repede si exact desi la inceput dura 10 minute si efectul nu era tocmai elegant), fard de ochii in nuante calde si balsam hidratant de buze.
Am ajuns la par cu care, recunosc, ma comport abuziv, mai putin in prezent, dar foarte mult in trecut cand ma vopseam in nestire in culori turbate si foloseam cantitati mari de fixativ si alte pomezi, dar pentru ca ma tundeam foarte des arata totusi decent. In momentul de fata m-am mai linistit si nu mai sunt atat de barbara, il spal o data la 2-3 zile cu ce sampon imi cade in mana si o data pe saptamana il rasfat cu o masca hranitoare (de ceva vreme folosesc Kallos Latte pentru ca in ciuda pretului mic-pitic miroase grozav si este foarte buna).

Probabil ca deja ma admirati profund pentru ca sunt atat de cumpatata cand vine vorba de cosmetice. Ei bine, ce economisesc aici dau pe parfumuri si haine, asa ca nu va grabiti sa-mi cereti sfaturi financiare. Imi plac mult parfumurile si nu pot folosi unul singur, imi trebuie unul pentru fiecare stare si anotimp si in general toamna gravitez intre Burberry Classic si Deep Red by Hugo Boss.

Inchei cu outfitul care este unul normal pentru o zi la serviciu. De data aceasta am renuntat la imprimeuri si am ales combinatia albastru inchis-roz care este una dintre favoritele mele. Colierul negru cu flori din piele si bratara de dantela roz cu trandafir visiniu sunt facute de mine si le puteti vedea/cumpara aici si aici!

Nu va speriati, urmeaza textul in engleza!:)

Many of you lovely ladies have asked me (via comments or email) to write an article about my ‘secrets” when it comes to my skin, make-up and hair. I’m very pleased that you like them but I postponed writing an article about my beauty routine because the truth is I don’t do much. I do have some problems:)))) but fortunately skin has never been one of them, I guess I’m super lucky because my skin has always been very clean and soft even as a teenager when my friends were desperate because of all the pimples and acne and such. In fact I was so oblivious that I didn’t even use any kind of makeup or face cream until I was 17. Even now I use very little make up but I do clean my face dutifully every night and apply a face cream. I don’t use expensive cosmetics and I prefer the very fresh and light face creams, I hate the greasy, heavy ones (right now I use Garnier Skin Naturals with grapes as a face cleanser and Gerocossen Normal Skin with honey and Aloe Vera as a face cream, but I basically buy any brand that I fancy in that moment). Once a week I use a very gentle face scrub, my favorite is the Avon Planet Spa with white ice tea.
When it comes to make up I also keep things very simple and sometimes boring as I feel I have one of those faces that looks better with minimal and light make up. I usually use a little foundation to cover the dark circles under my eyes (I do have those) – Avon Calming Effects - one bottle of foundation (30 ml) is enough for me for more then 6 months. I also use mascara, I just bought a new one that’s great (Loreal VolumissimeX5 Carbon Black) and dark eyeliner. Except the mascara I think the blush is the most important element in my makeup, I do love it and have a rather large collection in different shades of pink and peach but my absolute favorite has to me Bourjois (15 Rose Eclat).
When it comes to my hair I’m very abusive: I color it very often but it still looks ok because I also cut it very often. I change my shampoo constantly but I try to use a hair mask once a week (I’m very pleased with Kallos Latte which is both huge and cheap). Also I have to admit that for some strange reason my hair looks better in the pictures on this blog compared to reality so don’t hate me to much.
 
 
I love perfumes and I do splurge on those, I have one for every season and during the fall I prefer Burberry Classic and Deep Red by Hugo Boss.

As for the out outfit it’s nothing to fancy, just another job outfit. I know you probably think I always wear crazy patterns but as you can see I also own monochrome pieces. This is my beloved navy skirt, one of my “to go” pieces that can be worn with almost anything and that also has a very flattering shape. I love this color combination: navy and dusty pink. The flower leather necklace is handmade by me and one of my favorites accessories from the many I have created over time (you can buy it here).  The pink lace bracelet with the attached dark cherry rose is also made by me (you can buy it here). 

 
 
I’m wearing/ Port: pink dress worn as a blouse: Noa Noa, skirt, leather jacket – both vintage, boots, belt – random brands, leather flowers necklace and lace rose bracelet – both Alice&Sara (made by me)



Can you share with us your some of your beauty secrets and recommend me a good eye cream as I discovered some little wrinkles under my eyes and I’m a little freaked out?:)))))Care sunt secrete voastre cand vine vorba de ritualurile de ingijire?

Modniza -multumesc mult, mult dr tot:)

Sacramento -thank you, soon enough I'm gonna open the etsy store I promise:)

modniza said...

asa de bine ai descris ritualul tau de ingrijire si make-up,ca m-am gandit sa fac si eu un post despre my routine.o zi buna!

rufflesforbreakfast said...

Nice one :-) you really do have a great complexion and I think brighter shades would also suit you well on make-up (teal or dark grey I think) :-)

Gingerrr said...

Thanks for sharing :D
Si mie imi place la nebunie nuanta asta de roz. Recent mi-am luat o rochie culoarea asta, fara s-o probez, si se pare ca mi-e mica :)) I guess I'm not as skinny as I thought.
Eu pentru ochi folosesc o crema Bioten de la Elmiplant cu "royal jelly si proteine de grau" (don't ask me about the royal jelly, I have no idea). Ar trebui sa previna aparitia ridurilor fine si sa estompeze cearcanele :D It's on the cheap side in ceea ce priveste eye stuff, deci cred ca ar merita s-o incerci, mai ales ca ridurile tale nu-s prea vizibile (eu una nu le vad deloc) :D

Alice in vintageland said...

modniza - abia astept sa citesc:)

rufflesforbreakfast - o sa incerc:), multumesc mult:)

gingerr - chiar o sa ma duc sa mi-o cumpar, multumesc mult pt recomandare, nu sunt foarte vizibile, dar am observat ca ale Sarei care este cu un an mai mare ca mine sunt mai mici deci nu poate strica:), si eu imi cumpar mereu haine mai mici:)))) , cred ca este wishfull thinking:))))

Foarte frumoasa tinuta, imi place bluza roz si ador geaca scurta. M-am regasit in povestea ta cu tenul, nici eu n-am avut niciodata probleme chiar si in adolescenta aveam un ten perfect. Lucky us, right? Cat despre par, ma bucur sa aud ca l-ai lasat natural, natural is so much better in my opinion.

Special K said...

Ce-mi place ca ai un stil atat de bine definit, e greu de confundat...I ♥ it! Si ca de obicei, arati super :x

Si eu m-am regasit in povestea cu tenul, lucky indeed :D pup!:*

Faboulista said...

inca o alta tinuta super! imi place asa mult ca u post so often. as to your beauty dos god i am so happy u posted this because u seriously have the best skin ever. u really are blessed with great genes cause i could never do that and have that skin. or maybe thats the reason why my skin isnt so nice. i put too much crap on it. maybe i need to slow it down.

Alice in vintageland said...

Special K -multumesc, we're lucky:)

Faboulista - ti-am simtit lipsa a lot, trebuie sa vorbim pe fb sa-mi povestesti tot, clar este vorba de gene si nu de ce fac so don't beat yourself up, mie mi se pare ca si tu ai great skin:)

Alice in vintageland said...

Laura - da:))), m-am saturat sa-l vopsesc desi nu o faceam decat de un an si ceva pt ca pana acum 2 ani nu ma vopsisem ever, cand am terminat facultatea am zis sa fac ceva nebunesc:)))))))
