Last week I attended the opening of Monroe Make-Up & Hair Lounge a new concept and as far as I know the first beauty studio in my country to offer express hair, nails, face treatments and professional makeup services. Everyone has a busy life these days and Monroe was specially created for women who want quality services but don’t want to spent hours in a beauty salon. One of the best parts about Monroe is that you can drop by without an appointment or if you want a professional makeup session in the comfort of your own home, there’s nothing simpler because one of the makeup artists can come to you.
What I first like about Monroe Make-Up & Hair Lounge is the joyful, feminine and colorful design which creates a chic, happy and Marilyn Monroe like atmosphere. There are comfortable armchairs in bright colors almost everywhere in the salon or you can choose to relax on the vintage sofa with lots of fluffy pillows. The location is quite central, being situated on Calea Floreasca no. 61 across Rue du Pain. Continue Reading
Last week Parisax Romania hosted an exclusive event for beauty bloggers to get acquainted with the brand and show us their latest beauty products. I was invited by Sinziana Iaru which was also Parisax representative makeup artist and also my favorite one. During this meeting we were introduced to Parisax newest products and I could try and swatch some of the eyeshadows and lipsticks.
I’ve been always charmed by Parisax cases and bags and this time I could see them in person. We also had the pleasure of admiring a makeup demonstration by Sinziana Iaru and I was happy to see her again even though we just met two days before on my birthday when she gave me a sultry pink & black makeup look as a present.

I’m sure by now most readers know that my B-day was last week when I also started my B-day International Giveaway. Thank you all for your lovely wishes, comments and messages, it means a lot to me to know that you care. 🙂
As a birthday present, Sinziana Iaru makeup artist & trainer at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy offered me a free makeup session in my favorite colors pink and black. I wanted a special makeup look for my b-day, something that I wear only at special occasions and who else better for this task than my favorite makeup artist Sinziana Iaru (official page). I was no stranger of her makeup technique and talent since she already done a black smokey eye look on me on a different occasion and I also had the pleasure of photographing her Geisha Halloween 2012 Makeup Look.
So I let myself in the hands of Sinziana with the only request that my makeup should be in pink and black shades, something sultry and special. Needless to say I loooved the result and I will try to do my own version very soon. They eyeshadow used were from Make-Up Atelier and for the lips Sinziana used a colorless gloss mixed with the same bright pink eyeshadow. On the nails I’m wearing Kinetics Let’s Pink Nail Polish (review, swatches & long-lasting test). Continue Reading
Since Halloween is just around the corner, earlier this week I decided to pay a visit to my favorite make-up artist Sinziana Iaru to see what makeup looks she has planned for this holiday.
You’ve probably heard me talking about Sinziana Iaru (official website) in my previous posts but for those of you who are new to my blog let me introduce her as one of the most talented Romanian make-up artists and also make-up trainer at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy (FB page) in Bucharest. When I arrived at her makeup studio Sinziana was wearing a Geisha Halloween inspired makeup look and a traditional Japanese female hairstyle to match the makeup and complete the look.
This was one of the Halloween makeup looks shared by Sinziana with her students who are currently taking makeup classes at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy. She uses only professional makeup brands like Make Up For Ever, Make-up Atelier, Parisax, MAC and she is never to tired to share her makeup knowledge with anyone willing to learn more or receive an advice.
Sinziana also receives makeup requests for Halloween holiday and some of the most challenging makeup looks of this year were the Avatar look and Lizard Women makeup.
I also took the liberty of taking some photos of her studio, makeup products and tools which were laying on the makeup table in orderly disorder. Continue Reading
Here is my special post for my makeup look created by Sinziana Iaru (official website) – trainer makeup artist @Exclusive Beauty Line Academy – yesterday when I visited Kinetics nails stand at Cosmetic Beauty Hair 2012 edition (info & photos).
I chose to have a different makeup than I’m usually wearing so Sinziana did a an evening makeup look, suitable if you are going to the club, to a rock concert or any occasion which requires a more dramatic look. Was really a pleasure to have Sinziana doing my makeup and having the chance to receive a few makeup tips and talk her into revealing some of her makeup techniques.
I don’t know how many of my Romanian readers are familiar with the name Sinziana Iaru (facebook page) but she is a very talented makeup artist and a nice person who is willing to share her makeup experience with any beginner makeup artist or person interested in receiving tips, advices and more information. Last night at Estetica Awards 2012 edition she won third place with an amazing makeup creation. Continue Reading
Cosmetic Beauty Hair 2012 Edition began Thursday 20 September 2012 and I wouldn’t miss it for the world, so yesterday together with my friend Adyna (read her post here) I went to check out the latest trends in beauty and the upcoming nail polish collections.
Even though we have been there for 3 and a half hours, time passed so fast but we did visit quite a few beauty brands so I will make separate posts for each one of my favorite brands that we visited, not in particular order.
As you know I’m a big Kinetics fan so it’s always a pleasure to check out their stand at every beauty event and talk to Olga Kirilova, international trainer in nail art, design 3D and Sinziana Iaru, trainer make-up artist at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy. It’s impossible to miss Kinetics beauty stand with their colorful nail polish displays and professional nail products. I also had the pleasure of chatting again with Sinziana and receiving a makeup session as a gift. I chose an evening makeup, special for going out in the club, to a rock concert or any event that requires a more dramatic makeup look, but more about it you can read here.
As always Kinetics beauty stand was one of the most colorful and very well supplied with nail polishes from past 2012 collections as well as the new Kinetics Let’s Pink Fall – Winter 2012 Collection (info & photos) which I already received a couple of days ago and I will soon show my swatches to you. If a nail polish is not what you are looking for then you can choose between the large number of nail accessories, perfumed hand lotions (presentation post), aromatic cuticle oil (presentation post with info & photos) and Kinetics Nano Nail Treatmens (review).

Yesterday I got my laptop back and now I can finally share with you photos and more info about brands that I’ve seen Saturday at Cosmobeauty Exhibition. The first beauty stand that I had to check out was Kinetics and if you read my blog for quite a while you will probably know that Kinetics is one of my favorite brands when it comes to nail polishes, nail treatments & hand creams.
I really had a great time at Kinetics counters Saturday because I met again with Olga Kirilova, International Trainer in Nail Art at Exclusive Beauty Line Academy in Bucharest and I also had the pleasure to get acquainted with Sinziana Iaru, Trainer Make-up at the same Academy.
Cosmobeauty Exhibition was a great opportunity to check out the new spring-summer 2012 trends in makeup & nail products. Kinetics brought with them at the expo new nail polishes from Flower Explosion Spring 2012 Collection (info, photos & nail swatches), their Nano Nail Treatments (photos & review), hand creams (I included in some of my giveaways) and all kind of nail products from cuticle oil, to nail brushes and all types of gel for nail construction. Unfortunately they didn’t have Kinetics Neon Spring 2012 Collection (reviews) which contains 6 beautiful neon shades because the collection was sold out pretty fast but check out their website Kiriloff.ro to see when new colors are coming up.
