Fiecare e liber sa promoveze si sa militeze pentru ce vrea. De aia suntem in 2017 si de aia internetul ne elibereaza (vorba reclamei), doar ca ar fi dragut sa avem grija ce, unde, cum si pe cine vrem sa influentam. Vrem sa influentem tinerele de 13 ani sa renunte la linia de eyeliner care nu-si are locul de la varsta aia? Sau vrem pur si simplu sa fim mai cu mot?

Nici eu nu ma machiez non stop zi de zi, ba din contra, uneori trec zile intregi si fata mea nu primeste altceva in afara de crema. Dar nene, cand e vorba de eveniment sau intalniri sau pur si simplu ca asa am eu chef, ma machiez. Mai discret sau mai accentuat, nu conteaza, dar ma machiez. Ma machiez pentru ca machiajul imi da o stare de bine, evidentiaza linia genelor, a pometilor un pic ascunsi, defineste exact curbura buzei si imi da senzatia ca sunt imbracata.

Asa cum nu umblam tot timpul dezbracati in pielea goala, asa imi doresc uneori sa imi imbrac si fata. Si o fac cu mandrie si promovez machiajul si produsele profesionale de makeup si respect meseria asta si ma bucur. Ma bucur de rezultate, de schimbari, de evidentieri de trasaturi.

Ma enerveaza insa cand domnite de pe la noi vor sa o imite pe Alicia Keys si se trezesc ele sa militeze pentru natural. Ok, natural natural, dar voi cat de naturale sunteti? Credeti ca naturaletea consta intr-un fond de ten pus pe fata sau nu?

Eu sper sa nu ne impartim in doua tabere si sa se faca prea mult caz pe tema asta, pentru ca am observat ca greu se mai construieste podul cand s-a creat prapastia. Ideea e simpla, daca fiecare isi pastreaza limitele si nimeni nu o da in extrem atunci suntem pe drumul cel bun.

Cine a fost in #CaravanaSecreteleMachiajului stie ca si eu si Sinziana am sustinut foarte clar, ca noi credem si dorim sa inspiram la machiaje potrivite pentru fiecare trasatura, nimic exagerat, nimic iesit din comun, machiaje frumoase care sa infrumuseteze femeia.

Barbatii spun ca “te plac naturala”, dar intorc capul dupa prima femeie machiata si nu se mai satura sa ne priveasca cand genele sunt arcuite de rimel sau buzele sunt rosii. Sa fim seriosi, ne plac femeile machiate.

Va rog eu mult, ramaneti cu capul pe umeri si pastrati-va linia de plutire, nu mai exagerati cu trenduri care nu ajuta la nimic, stati fara makeup cand vreti voi, dar nu renuntati total ca sa deveniti extremiste, avem multe alte lucruri bune pentru care sa militam.

Pe curand,

A voastra,

Andra

Let’s be serious, we like women with make-up!

 

Each one of us is free to promote and lobby for what he wants. This is why we’re in 2017 and this is why the Internet is making us free (as the commercial says), only it would be nice to be careful with what, where, how and who we want to influence. Do we want to influence 13 years old girls to drop off the eyeliner line, which isn’t appropriate for them at their age? Or do we just want to believe we’re more important?

 

I’m not wearing make-up around the clock, day by day, on the contrary, sometimes full days go by and my face isn’t getting anything else except moisturizer. But man, when I have to go to events, or meetings, or when I’m just simply in the mood to do it, I wear make-up. More discreet, or more intense, it doesn’t matter, but I do wear make-up. I wear make-up because make-up gives me a good feeling, it highlights my eyelashes line, my slightly hidden cheeks, it precisely defines the curve of my lip and it gives me the feeling that I’m wearing clothes.

 

In the same way we’re not always walking around naked, without clothes, I wish I can sometimes dress my face as well. And I do it with pride and I promote make-up and the professional make-up products, and I respect this profession and enjoy it. I enjoy the results, the changes, highlighting the features.

 

But I get mad when I hear that our ladies want to copy Alicia Keys and start lobbying the natural look. Ok, natural is natural, but how natural are you guys? Do you think that a natural look is made by a foundation applied on the face or not?

 

I hope we won’t divide into two separate camps and there isn’t going to be a lot of fuss regarding this issue, because I noticed that it’s very difficult to build a bridge when the abyss is already there. The idea is simple, if everybody keeps their boundaries and doesn’t take it to the extreme, I think we’re on the right path.

 

Those who came at #CaravanaSecreteleMachiajului (The Secrets of Make-up Caravan) know that me and Sinziana were very clear about us believing in and wanting to inspire adequate make-up for each feature, nothing exaggerated, nothing out of the ordinary, beautiful make-up which beautifies women.

 

Men say „I like you natural”, but they turn their heads around after the first woman with make-up and they can’t get enough watching us when our eyelashes are curved with mascara and our lips are red. Let’s be serious, we like women with make-up.

 

Please, keep your heads on your shoulders and above the waterline, stop exaggerating with trends that don’t help, don’t wear make-up when you don’t feel like it, but don’t quit entirely, so you don’t become extremists, because we have a lot of other good things to fight for.

 

See you soon,

 

Yours,

 

Andra
