The Heights of Dreams

The Heights of Dreams

Buna seara floricelelor! 

 Acum un an, am fost invitata la o nunta ca in povesti. In Sicilia, la o buna prietena. Primul gand pe care l-am avut atunci cand am auzit ca trebuie sa mergem, a fost: "Sigur o sa fie ceva iesit din comun!" Obiceiurile, limba siciliana si melodioasa, biserica catolica, mirii foarte frumosi si nerabdatori, o locatie de vis, ca-n paradis! 

Toate bune si frumoase...ce rochie imi fac? Nu mi-a luat mult timp pana sa realizez ceea ce imi doresc: o rochie asemanatoare a celor pe care le purta Sophia Loren, pictata cu motive siciliene care erau pozate chiar de mine, din tura anterioara din Sicilia. 

Matusica mea Dali, cea cu maini de aur s-a pus pe treaba si a facut croiul sexy al rochiei iar eu am completat cu un detaliu artistic, ci anume, pictura manuala pe dedesubtul trenei. Cu muzica siciliana cantand in surdina in urechile mele, mainile mele s-au tot plimbat pe acea parte alba a rochiei timp de o saptamana, iar la final, rochia mea a prins viata! 

Intr-o dimineata, atunci cand am surprins o raza de soare incalzind soarele meu, lamaile incepusera sa se inghesuie acolo, sa-si lase zeama curgand, sa-mi spuna: "Hai...te asteptam in Sicilia...vino!", soarele mi-a zambit si mi-a facut cu ochiul, iar pe partea cealalta ma strigau portocalele rosii...aaa, sa ma trezesc!

Baloane cu motive siciliene


Hai ca incepusem sa visez cu ochii deschisi. ;)) 

Va invit sa simtiti mirosul iasomiei degajat in splendoarea noptii, sa auziti cantarea din biserica atunci cand mirele a dat la o parte voalul miresei iar mama si-a daruit fiica ginerelui, sa vedeti baloanele "fugind" cat mai departe si sa admirati o rochie cu totul deosebita, parazidiaca!

In spatele meu, sunt poaelele capricioasei Etna.

Aici deja priveam plangand...(normal, orice femeie plange la nunti) :P

Indeplineam un obicei, eram mai multe domnisoare care trebuiau sa le ofere obiecte cu o valoare metaforica.

Rochia a fost lucrata cu dragoste, nervi si pasiune de catre Dali Popa, cu maini maiestre. Multumesc din suflet, pasare maiastra!

Hi my beautiful girls! 

 RO: Va scriu acum - ascultand melodia lui Jessie Ware "Wildest moments" - despre puterea femeii de a trece peste toate greutatile vietii. Am incercat sa transmit prin aceste poze facute pe un taram apropiat de natura extraterestra, cum indiferent de conditii si cat de multe obstacole intalnim in viata, noi femeile, reusim sa tinem piept (cu multa durere si suferinta, dar reusim) evenimentelor neplacute. 

Chiar acum cateva zile vorbeam cu o prietena draga miesi-mi spunea: " Femeile duc greutatile din viata lor de doua ori mai mult decat barbatii!" Si eu cred cu desavarsire ca asa este!( si-acum probabil ca barbatii ma vor blama :)), dar asa simt si eu) 

 De ce am ales vulcanul activ Etna din Sicilia ca si locatie? Pentru ca desi este un loc rece, sec, neprielnic si dur, totusi are frumusetea lui aparte, cu licarirea lui ce forfota si rabda cu greu sa nu izbucneasca, asemeni problemelor. Sa recunoastem, daca totul ar fi minunat pe lumea asta, cred ca ne-am plictisi teribil si apoi ni s-ar uri cu binele, nu-i asa? 

Trecand peste partea aceasta, vreau sa va spun si 2-3 cuvintele despre makeup. Am optat in aceasta postare, pentru un makeup ce pare a-ti da o expresie blajina si dura in acelasi timp. Am accentuat linia pliului cu nuanta nr.98, un fard refill de la Make Up For Ever, care este o nuanta pamantie, dar calda. Apoi pentru a deschide nuanta pleoapei, am aplicat nuanta M-510 Vanille,tot de la Make Up For Ever si aceasta. Pentru fata mea am folosit Tinted Beauty Balm de la Too Faced, nuanta Nude Glow, este potrivitpentru tenul bronzat. Ca si blush, am adaugat putin din Bourjois Délice de Poudre Bronzing Powder, nuanta Tanned 52, ce miroase delicios de bine, a ciocolata! La final si un strop de ruj Sheen Supreme de la MAC, nuanta Supremely Confident. 

 Ne revedem in curand cu o alta postare, care sper, sa va dea pe spate! :)) 

 Va pup fetelor, mmmuah!!!


EN: I’m writing to you now - while listening to Jessie Ware – Wildest moments – about the women’s power to always get over all the hardships of life. Through these photos, taken on what it appears to be an almost extraterrestrial land, I tried to point out that no matter under what conditions and no matter how many obstacles we meet in life, we – women – manage (with lots of pain and suffering, but we manage) to face all the unpleasant events.

 Even a few days ago I was talking to a very dear friend of mine and she was telling me: “Women carry the hardships of their lives twice as men do!” And I frankly believe it’s true! (and now, probably men will blame me , but this is how I feel). 

Why did I pick the active volcano Etna from Sicily as a location? Because although it is a cold, dry, inhospitable and rough place, it still has its unique beauty, with its agitated glimmer that hardly endures not to burst just like every day’s problems. Let’s admit that if everything would be perfect in this world, we would probably get bored and at one point we will have enough of all the good, right? 

One above the other, I would like to share with you a few things about the makeup. For this post I chose a makeup which gives you a look that seems to be gentle and tough at the same time. I accentuated the crease line with nuance No.98, a refill makeup from Make Up For Ever, which is an earth nuance, but still a warm one. Than to lighten the eyelid nuance, I applied M-510 Vanilla, also from Make Up For Ever. For my face I used Tinted Beauty Balm from Too Faced, Nude Glow nuance, which goes very good with tanned skin. For the blush part, I added a little Bourjois Délice de Poudre Bronzing Powder, Tanned 52 nuance, which has a delicious smell of chocolate! At the end, a little bit of Sheen Supreme lipstick from MAC, Supremely Confident nuance. 

 See you soon with another post that I hope will blow your mind! 

 Kisses girls! Mmmmmuah!!!

 RO: Buna fetelor! 

 "Be the Queen!" Si de ce nu? Ce te opreste? Tu chiar poti fi regina, oriunde, oricand! Nu este deloc complicat precum pare, as vrea doar sa ai cat mai multa incredere in personalitatea ta, cititoarea mea... 

 Pe cand mi-am planificat excursia in Sicilia, am stiu ca intr-o zi din timpul petrecut acolo, vreau sa ma simt exact ca o regina. Locatie tinta: Templul cu coloane dorice de la Segesta.Nu-i asa ca pare un prilej bun sa imi indeplinesc visul de a fi o data in viata regina? 

La machiajul pe care l-am integrat in aceasta poveste am facut chiar si un tutorial, in care veti vedea exact ce produse am folosit. Mi-am umbrit pleoapele cu un pigment rosiatic cu reflexe turcoaz intocmai pentru a da efectul unei priviri misterioase, prestigioase as putea spune. 

Rochia a fost facuta bineinteles de niste maini "aurite" ce au contribuit cu atat mai mult la imaginea mea de "Regina". Sinestezia culorilor cu aerul usor sarat al Siciliei m-au facut sa cred cu adevarat intr-o lume antica, unde se perindau in persoana, bogatia si umilinta. Frumoasa Sicilie... 

 Preafericitele mele cititoare, sa aveti o seara frumoasa in continuare! 

 Mai multe detalii ale machiajului vor aparea in curand, deocamdata puteti vedea ce produse am folosit, mai jos. 

 Va pup, mmmuah!


EN: Hello girls! 

 "Be the Queen!" And why not? What's stopping you? You can be a queen, anywhere, anytime! It is not as complicated as it seems, I just want you to have more confidence in your personality, my dear readers... 

By the time I planned the trip to Sicily, I knew that in one of the days spent there, I want to feel exactly like a queen. Target Location: The Temple with Doric columns from Segesta.Doesn't it seem a good opportunity to fulfill my dream of being a queen once in a lifetime? 

For the makeup that I integrated into this story, I even made a tutorial, where you will see exactly what products I used. I shaded my eyelids with a reddish pigment with turquoise highlights to give the effect of a mysterious, even prestigious look. 

The dress was made, of course, by some "gold" hands that contributed even more to my "Queen" image. The color synesthesia and the slightly salty air of Sicily made me truly believe in an ancient world where wealth and humility were walking around in person. Beautiful Sicily ... 

Have a nice evening, my joyful readers! 

 More details about the makeup coming soon. 

For now, you can see below the products I used. 

 Kisses! Mmmuah!

RO: Ah...bineinteles ca iar am avut ocazia sa stau DECAT o zi in acest loc binecuvantat si sfant pentru gusturile mele. Doar o zi! Dar promit ca am sa ma duc iar si de data asta chiar o sa ma fac "pierduta"! :)) Insa desi am ajuns doar pentru putin timp acolo, am reusit totusi sa-mi transpun machiajul in peisajul naucitor de salbatic. In principiu, culorile pe care le-am ales sunt unele pamantii, DAR am simtit nevoia sa cuceresc publicul (adica voi) cu acela "ceva" si sper ca am reusit. 

 Vedeta machiajului este rujul de la Lime Crime Velvetines, in nuanta Utopia. In mod surprinzator, observand ca desi este o culoare puternica ca si intensitate, ea se potriveste de minune pe mai multe tipuri de ten (ma refer aici la culoarea tenului) si inca ceva: dintii par mult mai albi! :)) Cred cu desavarsire ca acesta combinatie de culori, magenta cu maro-roscat, fac perechea ideala pentru a reflecta si a scoate la iveala nivelul tau de senzualitate la cea mai mare valoare pe care o poate avea. 

Acest shooting este dedicat femeilor in special si vreau sa spun un lucru foarte important: chiar daca credeti ca ati pierdut-o sau pur si simplu ca nu o aveti, senzualitatea exista cu adevarat in tine, caut-o in adancul tau si o vei gasi.

EN:  Ah ... of course I had the opportunity to stay for ONLY one day in this blessed and holy place for my tastes. Only one day! But I promise I will go again and this time I'll even "lose myself" there! :)) But even though I was there only for a short time, I still managed to transpose my makeup in the stunningly wild landscape. In principle, the colors I've chosen are earthy ones, BUT I felt the need to conquer the public (you) with that "something", and I hope I succeeded. 

The star of the makeup is the lipstick from Lime Crime Velvetines in Utopia nuance. Surprisingly, noticing that although it is an intensely strong color, it fits in nicely on many skin types (I refer here to skin colors), and another thing: the teeth look much whiter! :))It strongly believe that this color combination, magenta with reddish-brown, makes the ideal pair to reflect and reveal your level of sensuality to the highest value that it can have. 

The shooting is especially dedicated to women and I want to say something very important: even if you think you lost it or that you simply don't have it, sensuality really exists in you. Search deep inside and you will find it.

Buna tuturor! 

 Scala dei Turchi... numai cu numele, ma duce cu gandul la niste turci si turcoaice stand pe stancile acestea albe iar toata imaginea pare sa aiba un contrast naucitor, accentuand pielea lor maslinie cu tesaturile lor aurite. De ce sa nu ma inspir din aceasta imagine in privinta machiajului, am zis? 

In ziua aceea, avusesem in plan sa vizitez si Valle dei Templi din postarea trecuta, iar machiajul s-a incadrat perfect in ambele locuri istorice. Dar locul acesta alb, complet izbitor de alb, mi-a ramas in adancul sufletului. 

Chiar pe marginea stancilor, erau "decupate" fragmente de stanca sub forma unor cazi de baie, unde puteai sa te afunzi in apa marii sarate (la sensul figurat), te bronzai si citeai cartea favorita sau te relaxai uitandu-te lung la cerul impecabil de albastru. Dar ce ma impiedica sa schimb din sensul figurat al apei din cazi, in sensul real si chiar sa simti cum te racoresti chiar daca te arde soarele? 

Mi-am promis singurica mie, ca data viitoare am sa iau si doua galeti cand voi ajunge acolo, mai mult ca sigur! Referitor la machiaj, jucati-va cu mintea voastra si puneti-va la contributie imaginatia bogata! 

Mai jos aveti si imaginile cu machiajul explicat pas cu pas, sper sa va ajute! :D Daca aveti intrebari in legatura cu machiajul sau chiar cu locatia, nu ezitati si am sa va dau raspunsul asteptat (cred) ! :D 

 Va pup, mmmuah!

RO
: Aplicati baza de fard intr-un strat subtire si intindeti-o in mod egal pe toata pleoapa.
EN
: Apply the makeup base in a thin layer and spread it evenly over the entire eyelid.


Image title
RO
: Aplicati cu o pensula ce blenduie fardul, o nuanta maro-rosiatica pe pleoapa inferioara si trasati in continuare linia de care v-am mai spus intr-o alta postare, pentru un efect de umbrire naturala a ochiului. Puteti pune si fard negru peste, pentru un efect mai dramatic.
EN
: Apply with a brush that blends the makeup, a brown-reddish shade on the lower eyelid and further draw that line I told you about in another post, for a natural shading effect of the eye. You can also add some black shadow over, for a more dramatic effect.


Image title


RO
: Accentuati usor linia genelor superioare cu acelasi fard maro-roscat (sau cu negru) si uniti-o cu cea de jos, deja trasata.
EN
: Gently emphasize the upper lash line with the same brown-reddish (or black) shade and merge it with the bottom one already drawn.


Image title
RO
: Pentru un efect de misteriozitate si de profunzime a privirii, sugerez sa blenduiti bine pliul de sus pornind de la pliul anilor '60 spre exterior, definindu-se in smokey eyes spre final.

EN: For a more mysterious effect and a deeper glance, I suggest you really blend the upper crease, from the 60's crease to the outside, defining it in smokey eyes towards the end.



Image title
RO
: Scoateti in evidenta partea de iluminat ochiul cu un fard auriu deschis si unul alb-rose satinat in arcada sprancenei.
EN
: Highlight the lighting part of the eye with a light gold shade and a satin white rose in the eyebrow arch.


Image title
RO
: Imi place sa-i spun "cuprul meu". De cate ori l-am folosit pe clientele mele, aceasta culoare minunata nu a dat gres in a cuceri. Dupa cum se observa, acesta trebuie aplicat in spatiul ramas liber si presat usor pentru o acoperire mai buna.
EN
: I like to call it "my copper". Whenever I used it on my clients, this wonderful color has never failed to conquer. As you can see, it must be applied in the remained free space and easily pressed for better coverage.


Image title
RO
: Finisam look-ul cu rimelul preferat si apoi plecam la druuum!
EN: We finish the look with the favorite mascara and then we are ready to goooo!



Image title
