The Starting off Project: Concealer

Hi ladies,

EN: Welcome to the second theme from The Starting off Project. Today we will talk about the concealer. That amazing product that hides the imperfections. But please don`t forget that is not enough to hide. We need to cure from inside first so don`t waste your nights and after use tons of concealer to hide the dark circles around the eye, because is not helpfull. If you saw the last article from the starting off project – the skincare routine you will understand better what I mean, and if you didn`t see it yet, I advice you to take a look now here.

So like I said the concealer is a cosmetic product used to mask skin imperfections: blemishes, pimples, dark circles pronounced.  If you take care of your skin you will not need to use the concealer every day. I have some red spots too on my face but I don`t feel is necessary to use the concealer every day. Is a good option but not a must have and I think is better to let the face breath and to try to make it look better from inside.

RO: Bine ati revenit pentru a doua tema din cadrul The starting off Project. Astazi vom vorbi despre corector. Acel minunat produs care ascunde imperfectiunile. Dar va rog nu uitati ca, nu e de ajuns sa ascunzi. Trebuie mai intai sa tratam din interior, asa ca nu pierde noptile aiurea pentru ca nu te va ajuta prea mult corectorul sa acoperi cearcanele.   Daca ati vazut celalalt articol din cadrul aceluiasi proiect – rountina de ingrijire a tenului veti intelege ce vreau sa spun, si daca nu ati citit, va sfatuiesc sa aruncati o privire aici.

Asadar, cum am mai spus, corectorul este un produs care ajuta la mascarea imperfectiunilor tenului: pete, cosuri, cearcane pronuntate. Daca ai grija de tenul tau nu mai este nevoie sa folosesti corectorul in fiecare zi. Eu am cateva pete rosii dar nu consider ca ar fi necesar sa folosesc corectorul zilnic. Este o optiune buna, dar nu ceva necesar si cred ca e bine ca uneori sa lasam tenul sa respire si sa incercam sa il facem sa arate bine din interior.


EN: It looks simple no? But let`s be realistic is not just like this. If you use the concealer in a wrong way you risk looking ridiculous. This is why the first step of using a concealer is to find a concealer that suits your skin color and skin texture.

Well now, in what concerns the way you choose the concealer, you can find thousand of reviews from all the type of products and for the concealer too on beauty blogs. Me personally I am not buying everything I read about, and it seems nice. Maybe on my skin is really not good that product. But, like I said in the first article  from this project,  I advice you to always ask for samples from the cosmetic shops and like this you can see how that product works and what color is better for you, what you don`t like about it, and stuff like this. You can make your own review to say it like this.

Now let`s see how we use the concealer, because that’s really important. If you want to have a nice makeup you should use the concealer because it is a beauty essential and  it help to brighten up a tired face. We do everything we can to use it to camouflage our flaws yet all too often, we end up accentuating them. And that’s why, despite the fact that breaking down the details of how to apply concealer correctly sounds like the most boring makeup topic ever, but it is actually really important.

A  concealer can be your best friend or the worst enemy. Using the wrong color or texture can ruin an entire makeup.

Hope you will find this helpfull, and down you can find my routine in what concerns the correction with a concealer, and also some tips that will help you.


RO: Pare simplu nu? Dar haideti sa fim realisti, pentru ca nu e chiar asa de simplu. Daca folosesti corectorul in mod gresit, risti sa arati ridicol. De aceea primul pas in folosirea corectorului este sa gasesti un corector care sa ti se potriveasca cu culoarea tenului si textura tenului.

Acum in ceea ce priveste alegerea corectorului, poti gasi mii de review-uri pentru toate tipurile de produse si pentru corector de asemenea pe blogurile de beauty. Eu personal, nu cumpar tot despre ce citesc si pare bun. Poate pe tenul meu nu e la fel de bun acel produs. Dar, cum am mai spus in primul articol din acest proiect va sfatuiesc sa cereti mereu niste monstre de la magazinele cosmetice si astfel poti vedea cum e produsul, ce culoare ti se potriveste, ce nu ti-a placut la el si alte chestii. Iti poti face propriul tau review sa zic asa.

Dar cel mai important este modul de folosire si aplicare a corectorului. Daca doriti un machiaj care sa arate perfect, frumos si corect ar trebui sa folosesti corectorul pentru ca este esential si ajuta la iluminarea unei fete obosite. Facem orice ca sa camouflam, dar de cele mai multe ori reusim sa le evidentiem. Si tocmai de aceea  in ciuda faptului ca aceste detalii despre modul in care se aplica un corector pot parea un subiect plictisitor despre machiaj, defapt e unul foarte important.

Un corector poate fi cel mai bun prieten al tau, sau cel mai cumplit dusman. Folosirea culorii  sau a texturii gresitepoate ruina intregul machiaj.

Sper ca aceste sfaturi sa va fie folositoare, si mai jos puteti gasi routina mea in ceea ce priveste corectarea impefectiunilor, aplicarea corectorului si de asemenea cateva sfaturi care te vor ajuta.

The Starting Off Project: My SkinCare Routine


We always want to look beautiful and young. And this desire we keep it even with the age. Whether you are a girl next door, a girl that care about how she looks, a diva or maybe a mother that doesn`t have enough time to go to a salon you would always like to be in a skin that looks young and breathes like a new one.

There used to be a time when we thought all you needed for a nice looking makeup was a trip to the beauty salon. Well is not true and you can see that most of the girls now spend more time reading about how they can have a nice makeup without going to a beauty salon. This is what I will tell you today.

How can you have a nice makeup at home? You will see how easy it is.

We all want to obtain that perfect makeup, but we forget sometimes that the makeup is not just about the colors you use and the products. How can you have a nice paint without a nice material to paint on? The first and the most important step is to take care of your skin and if you do this I can promise that you will look perfect with any kind of makeup. Everything comes from a nice skin. If your skin is clean and soft and if your eyes are not looking tired, your makeup it will look amazing.

Ne dorim mereu sa fim frumoase si tinere. Si aceasta dorinta o pastram chiar daca avem o anumita varsta. Indiferent ca esti fata din vecini, o fata careia ii pasa de cum arata, o diva sau poate o mama care nu are destul timp de petrecut la un salon de frumusete, iti vei dori mereu sa ai o piele care arata tanara si cu un aer proaspat.

A fost o vreme cand aveam impresia ca tot ce am nevoie pentru un machiaj dragut era o vizita la salonul de frumusete. Ei bine nu e adevarat si poti cu siguranta sa vezi ca majoritatea fetelor isi petrec mai mult timp acum incercand sa descopere cum pot avea parte de un machiaj frumos fara sa fie nevoite sa mearga la salon. Asta va voi spune si eu azi.

Cum poti avea parte de un machiaj frumos acasa? Vei vedea ce usor este.

Cu toate dorim sa obtinem machiajul perfect, dar uitam cateodata ca machiajul nu inseamna doar folosirea unor culori si a unor produse. Cum poti picta ceva frumos, daca nu ai un material frumos, bun pe care sa pictezi? Primul si cel mai important pas este asadar sa ai grija de pielea ta si daca faci asta iti promit ca vei arata perfect cu orice tip de machiaj. Totul porneste de la o piele frumoasa. Daca pielea ta este curata si proaspata si ochii tai nu arata obositi, machiajul tau va arata minunat.



Sleep Well!

Your skin it looks exactly like you are feeling. It is normal that if you don`t feel good your skin will look bad. If you will spend all the night in the club the next day for sure you will not have a fresh and clean skin. After a night without sleep the eyes reveals your exhaustion. That`s why I advice you friendly to stay away from this kind of live. Is one of the most important step to look good. Everything comes from a good mood, a healthy sleep and a healthy live.

Eat your way to looking beautiful!

It’s true… You are what you eat. It’s hard sometimes to always eat healthy so I try to just remember which foods are most important. Eating healthier whenever you can improves the way you feel and really works as a skin beautifier! Here are a few foods to try eating more of, that will help fight the aging process and keep you looking beautiful.

Taking omega 3s or adding them to your diet through fish, walnuts and flax seed help protect your skin from damage and reduce inflammation the underlying cause of aging. These are great for those of you who still suffer from breakouts since inflammation leads to acne and can help get rid of toxins. If you are serious about preventing aging and acne than look no further than grapefruit. It has tons of vitamin c which is a benefit to you since it contains antioxidants that stop free radicals from causing damage to the skin. Another great option to feeling and looking beautiful are the smoothies  you can find one of my favourite smoothies here. This smoothies are anti-inflammatory and helps you to keep your skin hydrated so you stay looking younger and skin is smooth and radiant. Don`t use just the smoothies and drink a lot of water. You know if you read my blog articles that I am obsessed with this idea of drinking water. So just drink as much as you can. Me I have a 0,5 l bottle all the time with me or on my table. Like this I don`t forget to drink and I fill it and drink it. Is easy no?

Find what works for you & Protect and Moisturize!

There is a ton of great info in this article. But maybe something won’t resonate with you. That’s ok and is good you noticed. Take what suits you and leave what  doesn’t. But be curious and open about new things. To start in a good way with your skin care first of all you should know your skin type. Different skin types need different types of care. It’s very important to know what type of care you need to get the best methods for clearing your skin.

After you know what kind of skin you have you should be able to choose the perfect products for you. Down you can see my Skincare routine but this doesn`t mean that the products I use are good for your skin too. You should try the products that are for your skin type and just if you feel that your skin looks better and it helps you should buy it again. Is easy no?  I advice you to go in shops and ask for little tester for products that you think you want to buy and like this you will see the reactions on your skin and not just some words on a label. Me for example I used so many products until I found the ones I like and that made improvements on my skin. You will do the same and I am sure about this. But don`t worry because in the end you will find the best for you.



Pielea ta arata exact asa cum te simti. Este normal ca atunci cand nu te simti bine, pielea ta sa arate neingrijita. Daca iti vei petrece toata noaptea in club, a doua zi cu siguranta nu vei avea parte de o fata curata si fresh. Dupa o noapte fara somn, ochii tai vor arata toata oboseala pe care au dobandit-o. Din acest motiv te sfatuiesc sa stai cat de mult poti departe de  acest stil de viata. Este unul dintre cel mai important pas pentru a arata bine. Totul vine de la o stare de spirit buna, un somn sanatos si o viata sanatoasa.

Mananca sanatos pentru a fi frumoasa!

Este adevarat… Esti ceea ce mananci. Este greu uneori sa mananci doar sanatos asa ca incerc sa imi amintesc care sunt alimentele cele mai importante. Mancand sanatos de fiecare data cand poti, iti vei imbunati felul in care te simti si intr-adevar ca alimentatia sanatoasa functioneaza ca si stimul pentru frumusete! Aici gasesti cateva alimente pe care ar trebui sa le consumi mai mult, si care te vor ajuta sa lupti cu procesul de imbatranire a pieli si te vor face sa fii mai frumoasa.

Omega 3 este un supliment foarte bun, sau daca consumi mult peste poti sa iti iei portia de omega 3 de acolo, nuci, seminte de in, toate acestea te vor ajuta sa iti protejezi pielea de la deteriorare si vor reduce inflamatiile si cauzele principale a imbatranirii. Acestea sunt foarte bune pentru persoanele care sufera de eruptii de la inflamatie care pot duce la acnee si ne ajuta in acelasi timp sa scapam de toxine. Daca va faceti probleme mari cu privire la prevenirea imbatranirii  si acneei atunci este indicat sa consumati un grepefruit pe zi. Are o tona de vitamina C care este benefica pentru tine, pentru ca are antioxidanti care vor opri radicalii liberi sa deterioreze pielea. O alta optiune pentru a te simti si a fi frumoasa sunt sucurile naturale. Poti gasi aici care sunt preferatele mele. Acestea au rol anti-inflamator si te vor ajuta sa iti pastrezi pielea hidratata, asa ca vei arata mai tanara si vei avea piele radianta si moale. Nu folosii doar smothies si bea si multa apa. Stii probabil daca citesti blogul meu ca eu sunt un fel de obsedata de apa. Asa ca bea cat de multa poti. Eu am o sticla de 0,5 l tot timpul cu mine sau pe masa de birou. Asa nu uit sa beau apa si o umplu din nou, si de la capat. E usor, nu?

Alege ceea ce ti se potriveste si protejeaza si hidrateaza!

Gasesti o tona de informatii in acest articol. Dar poate, nu tot ceea ce iti spun eu ti se va potrivii. Este ok si e bine ca ai observat asta. Alege doar ceea ce ti se potriveste si lasa de o parte ceea ce nu ti se potriveste. Dar fi curioasa si deschisa la lucrurile noi. Pentru un bun inceput in ceea ce priveste ingrijirea tenului este nevoie sa stii ce tip de ten ai. Tipurile diferite de ten au nevoie de ingrijire diferita. Este foarte important sa stii ce fel de ingrijire e potrivita pentru tine, astfel, vei gasi cele mai bune metode de curatare a tenului.

Dupa ce stii ce fel de ten ai, ar trebui sa poti sa poti sa alegi si  produsele care sunt bune pentru tine. Mai jos poti sa gasesti rutina mea de ingrijire a tenului, dar asta nu inseamna ca produsele pe care le folosesc sunt bune si pentru tine. Ar trebui sa incerci doar produsele destinate tipului tau de ten si doar daca simti ca ti-au adus unele imbunatatiri iti indic sa le cumperi din nou. E usor nu? Te sfatuiesc sa mergi in magazine si sa ceri monstre ale produselor pe care doresti sa le achizitionezi, si astfel vei vedea ce reactii are produsul respectiv pe tenul tau si nu doar cateva cuvinte pe o eticheta. Eu de exemplu am folosit multe produse pana am gasit ceva ce sa mi se potrivesca si care mi-au adus beneficii. Vei face la fel, te asigur. Dar nu iti face probleme, pentru ca in cele din urma vei gasi ce e mai bun pentru tine.


1.Nivea wet wipes – 5 euro, 2.Vichy Purifying Foaming Water Radiance Revealer- 16 euro, 3.Boreade Cleaning gel – 15 euro, 4.Clinique All About Eyes – 35 euro, 5.Dior Capture Totale – 50 euro


In the end I will advice to not forget when you choose your products to see what substances they contain. To help you choose the best products I will tell you which substances you should avoid. This is just a little list but it will be helpfull I am sure. Don`t be lazy to look behind every product. You will be the one that use this product so if you are lazy for you than you should forget about your beauty at all.

I think that this is all for today but I am sure that this tips will help you create your beauty  and care routine.


In cele din urma te voi sfatui sa nu uiti cand iti alegi produsele  sa vezi ce substante contin acestea. Pentru a va ajuta sa alegeti ceea ce este cel mai bun pentru voi, am sa va spun ce substante trebuie sa evitati si pe care ar trebui sa le folositi. Aceasta lista pe care v-am pregatit-o e scurta dar sunt sigura ca va va fi de ajutor. Nu fiti lenese sa va uitati pe spatele produsului. Tu vei fi cea care foloseste produsul si daca esti lenesa pentru tine atunci poti uita de frumusete.

Cred ca asta este tot ce am putut eu sa va spun despre ingrijirea tenului, dar sunt sigura ca va v-a ajuta sa va creati propria rutina de infrumusetare si ingrijire.


Hope you find it helpfull and If you do just follow me on my Facebook page for more beauty tips.

Hello my lovelies!

EN: Hope you are enjoying this lovely Saturday wherever you are. Me for sure I do and to make it more awesome I started my day preparing something really exciting for you. I had to reproduce a manicure that I liked most of another blogger who enrolled in this collaboration. Is called the secret manicure because the other blogger doesn`t know who it will reproduce her manicure and not even wich one she choose.

Me I reproduced a manicure of Lavinia from Dope beauty Blog and I choose to reproduce the most lovely manicure ever. Is not like Lavinia she doesn`t have a lot of amazing manicures, but you know that I am crazy about nail polish so I made something that it will convince  you now 😀

If you like this manicure I wait you on my facebook page for more lovely and glamourous stuff:

RO: Sper ca va bucurati de aceasta frumoasa Sambata oriunde v-ati afla. Eu cu siguranta ca ma bucur de ea si ca sa fie si mai frumoasa aceasta zi, mi-am inceput-o pregatind ceva cu adevarat interesant pentru voi. Am avut de reprodus o manichiura care mi-a placut foarte mult a unei bloggerite care s-a inscris si ea la aceasta colaborare. Este numita manichiura secreta pentru ca celalalt blogger nu stie cine urmeaza sa ii reproduca manichiura si nici pe care o va alege acesta.

Eu am reprodus manichiura Laviniei de la Dope Beauty Blog si am ales cea mai minunata manichiura din toate timpurile. Nu ca Lavinia nu are avea o gramada de manichiuri minunate, dar voi deja stiti ca eu sunt nebuna dupa oje asa ca acum am facut aceasta manichiura care cu siguranta va v-a convinge.

Daca va place aceasta manichiura, va astept pe pagina mea de facebook pentru mai multe idei si lucruri interesante:

The Techniques Challenge #2 – Ikat Nails

Hi Girls!

EN: Yes, is about a new challenge. I told you last week that every Monday we have a challenge called The Techniques Challenge. This is the second theme from this challenge. The first theme was Gradient nails and you can see it here.  Me and the girls who took part of this challenge we love nail art, and we are always looking to inspire you with our creations. We allways try to bring something new and interesting. I think we manage to do this no?

Well at least I hope so, because this time we used the Ikat technique and it looks amazing in every color posible and every form possible.

RO: Da, este vorba despre o noua colaborare. V-am spus saptamana trecuta ca in fiecare luni pe blogul meu puteti sa vedeti cate o manichiura din seria The Techniques Challenge. Aceasta este a doua teme din aceasta provocare. Prima tema a fost Gradient si puteti sa o vedeti aici. Eu si fetele care au luat parte la aceasta colaborare dupa cum vedeti iubim tot ce tine de nail art, si mereu incercam sa va inspiram cu creatiile noastre. Mereu incercam sa facem cate ceva nou si interesant. Si cred ca reusim sa facem asta nu?

Ei bine cel putin sper, pentru ca de aceasta data am folosit tehnica Ikat si arata minunat in orice culoare si forma posibila.


EN: This time I used the Golden Rose polish with texture facet. It is the most amazing blue that I ever had, and I confess that I can`t stop admiring my nails. This is my first textured polish and I never tought I will like so much a polish from Golden Rose. The new collection Holiday it definetly looks amazing. You can see the other colors from this colection here.

RO: De aceasta data am folosit o oja texturata de la Golden Rose. Este cel mai frumos albastru pe care l-am vazut si avut vreodata si marturisesc ca nu ma pot abtine sa nu imi tot admir unghiutele. Este prima mea oja texturata si niciodata nu am crezut ca imi va placea atat de mult o oja de la Golden Rose. Colectia noua Holiday cu siguranta ca este minunata. Puteti sa vedeti mai multe culori din aceasta colectie aici.

IMG_3820EN: Hope You liked my manicure that is a really simple one, but it definetely looks good because of the colors and the technique. The ikat technique it would look better on a normal nail polish, but now I just tried something new like I said up.

RO: Sper ca va placut manichiura mea care este defapt una simpla, dar arata cu siguranta bine datorita culorilor si tehnicii. Tehnica Ikat arata mai bine pe  o oja normala, dar cum am spus si la inceputul acestui post am vrut sa incerc ceva nou.

Let’s check out what the other girls have done:

Me and myself…

Hello: *

RO: Azi am avut o zi frumoasa in care am petrecut putin timp cu fetele, la o cafea si o poveste ceva mai lunga si am profitat de vremea frumoasa de afara asa ca m-am plimbat pe stradutele Clujului. Ador sa ma plimb in perioada asta prin Piata Muzeului si prin Piata Unirii si sa admir oamenii si locurile 🙂

Asa ca astazi am abordat un stil casual si lejer in acelasi timp. Mi-am scos noi conversi All Star la lumina si i-am lasat sa ma conduca la o plimbare atat de bine primita.

Va las acum cu tinuta mea si cu implititurile mele super-duper cute facuta de colega mea de camera care e o adevarata artista in ceea ce priveste impletiturile.


EN: Today I had a beautiful day and I spent some time with my girls on a coffe and some gossip like all girls do, and I took advantage of the nice weather so I walked on the lovely streets of Cluj.  I love to walk in this period in the Museum Square and Union Square and admire the people and places near me 🙂

 So today I approached a casual style and casual at the same time. I took out in the light my new converse from All Star and I let them lead my walk that was so well received. I leave you now with my outfit and my super-duper cute braids done by my roommate who is a true artist in what concerns braids 😀

Kisses and wish you a good night :*

Estee Lauder Nail Polish: Purple Passion

blog post

RO: Acesta este doar un post  scurt despre oja care am folosit-o astazi. Vroiam sa va arat manichiura care mi-am facut-o si oja de la Estee Lauder, Purple Passion care a fost prima care mi-a captat privirea din setul pe care l-am prezentat intr-un haul aici si v-am promis un review si un swatch pentru ele.

Imi place foarte mult aceasta oja deoarece in ceea ce priveste puterea de acoperire nu e nevoie sa o aplicati de 2 ori. Urasc cand trebuie sa aplic o oja de 2 ori !! Sincer sa va spun singurul incovenient la aceasta oja ar fii faptul ca are doar 5 ml dar imi place foarte mult  si vreau sa va spun ca sunt surprinsa de produsele de la Estee Lauder asa ca daca cautati ceva de calitate va sfatuiesc sa le incercati. Probabil ca pentru multe dintre voi sunt scumpe dar sunt produse ce isi merita toti bani.

Sper sa va placa manichiura mea pentru azi si va trimit pupici :*

Lasati-mi un comentariu cu ce oja doriti sa o vedeti intr- o viitoare manichiura si daca va place culoarea acestei oje :*


EN: This is just a quick post about the nail polish that I’ve been wearing today, Estee Lauder’s Pure Color in Purple Passion. I have already showed you this seth in a post here and I promised to make a review and to show you a swatch of this polish seth so I have been started with my favourite one, Purple Passion.

I love this polish because it has a great cover power and you don`t need to use it 2 times on a nail. I hate when I need to do this! The only inconvenient for me about this polish is that it has just 5 ml, but I love it and I really was surprised by Estee Lauder products so I advice you girls to try them. Maybe they are expensive for some of you but they are products that deserves the money.

Lots of kisses and hope you like my manicure for today :*

Let me know which of the colors from the seth you want to see in a future manicure and if you like this color or not :*
