2014 si ce a mai ramas din el, este anul rujului BURGUNDY! Femeile au decis sa isi lase deoparte temerile si sa il poarte. Pantone a anuntat deja culoarea Marsala (o nuanta de burgundy rosiatic) drept culoarea anului 2015, asa ca acesta va continua sa domneasca pe buzele noastre! Tinand cont de aceasta, am facut o selectie de machiaje sofisticate in combinatie cu aceasta culoare! O alegere minunata pentru Craciun! Si ca sa nu ramaneti doar cu imaginile starurilor, m-am gandit ca un pas cu pas va poate fi de ajutor in realizarea lui! 😉


2014 was the year of burgundy lipstick. It circulated in all places and the ladies decided to lose the fear and risk it. Pantone has already pointed out that the color Marsala (a nuance of burgundy) will be the color of 2015, burgundy will continue to rein our lips. With this in mind, I made a selection of sophisticated makeups to wear with this shade of lipstick. A great choice for Christmas! And I also thought that a step by step could be helpfull if you choose to recreate it! 😉

To start, the diva Katy Perry with opaque makeup on the eyes, beige and brown with classic black eyeliner. For the lips, a burgundy plum tone.

Diva Katy Perry poarta un machiaj in nuante mate de bej si maro cu tus clasic. Pe buze o nuanta de burgundy pruna.


Machiajul Emmei Stone urmeaza acelasi stil ca si al lui Katy, incluzand in plus o nuanta perlata pentru a ilumina ochii si a da un efect tineresc.

Emma Stone’s makeup follows the same style of makeup as of Katy’s, however, it incorporate a beautiful pearl tone shimmer to highlight the eyes and give the look a more young feel.


Fardurile sidefate sunt prezente si in machiajul Rihannei. Pe ochi un amestec de maro si cupru. Pe buze, o superba nuanta de burgundy.

Shimmer also appears in Rihanna’s beautiful makeup. The eyes are a blend of brown and copper. For her lips, a stunning burgundy shade.


Kylie Jenner isi valorizeaza buzele cu o nuanta de Marsala, in timp ce ochii sunt pusi in evidenta de gene false si farduri maro si bej sampanie. 

Kylie Jenner is amped up with Marsala burgundy lipstick, stunning eyes with brown and shimmery beige eyeshadows along with fake lashes. Stunning eyes and lips.


Iata si machiajul recreat de mine! Pe ochi bej si maro mat impreuna cu un fard perlat intr-o nuanta neutra, iar pe buze o nuanta de burgundy pruna combinat cu rosu pentru a “scoate” putin tonalitatea de mov! Intr-o postare anterioara v-am aratat cum sa obtineti culoarea burgundy daca nu aveti deja un astfel de ruj (cele care nu ati vazut-o, click AICI )! La sfarsitul postarii va las lista cu absolut toate produsele si pensulele folosite de mine.

Here is my make up! On my eyes matte beige and brown with a shimmery neutral shade, on my lips burgundy with a violet hue mixed with red to “pull out” a little bit that violet pigment! In a previous post I showed how to obtain burgundy lips if you don’t have such a lipstick in your beauty case (if you haven’t seen it, click HERE). At the end of the post I’ll list all the products and brushes used.







                                               PAS CU PAS     /   STEP by STEP

1) Pregatirea tenului prin hidratare si  aplicarea unei baze cu acoperire medie spre mare. Un machiaj puternic al buzelor sau al ochilor necesita o baza impecabila! Fondul de ten folosit este Estee Lauder Double Wear, cu un grad inalt de acoperire si un finish mat, ceea ce inseamna ca am evitat corectorul si pudra pentru a nu incarca si mai mult tenul. 

Prepare the skin by hydrating and applying a medium to high coverage base. The foundation I used it’s Estee Lauder Double Wear, a full coverage base with a matte finish! This means that concealer and powder it’s not necessary anymore, since I don’t want to look cakey.


2) Aplicarea unui primer pentru a face ca fardurile sa adere si sa reziste mai bine! Am aplicat produsul direct cu degetul inelar 🙂

Apply a primer to the eyelids to make the shadows stick, stand out and resist better! I applyed the product using my finger tip 🙂


3) Folosind o pensula de blending destul de “stufoasa” am aplicat nuanta Naked (bej mat) in pliul ochiului, lasand deoparte pleoapa. Cu cat pensula e mai mare cu atat efectul e mai sters si mai pierdut, cu cat pensula e mai mica cu atat aplicarea e mai precisa si mai intensa!

Using a fluffy blending brush, I applyed the shadow Naked (matte beige) in the crease, avoiding the eye lid. Bigger’s the brush, a bettter blended effect you’ll get. With a small brush, the result will be more precise and intense!



4) Cu o pensula de blending putin mai mica si mai compacta decat cea anterioara, am aplicat nuanta Buck (maro deschis mat) in coltul extern din pliul ochiului si al pleoapei, creand acea forma V. Acest pas va da dimensiune si profunzime ochilor, scotand in evidenta arcada! E un fel de tehnica de contur si evidentiere a ochilor!

With a compact blending brush a little smaller than the previous one, I  applyed the shadow Buck (medium matte brown) in the outer corner of my eye lids and crease, creating that V shape. This step will give dimension and depth to the eyes, making the brow bone stand out more! It’s kind of a contouring tecnique for the eyes!




5) Cu o pensula de blending curata, fara nici un fard, revin sa uniformizez culorile una in alta si marginile lor. Secretul unui machiaj reusit al ochilor consta in obtinerea acelui degrade, acelei nuante pierdute, ceea ce e posibil doar prin blending!

With a clean fluffy brush, without any shadow, I blend the edges and the colours! The secret for a beautiful eye make up is all about obtaining those lovely faded colours, so keep blending!


6) Cu o pensula plata din fibre sintetice, aplic nuanta de bej rece perlat pe pleoapa, mergand pierdut spre V-ul creat cu maroul mat. 

With a flat sintetic brush, I apply that cool frosty beige on the lid, getting lost into the V created previosly with the matte brown.


7) Timpul pentru eyeliner! Am folosit unul sul forma cremoasa cu o pensula in unghi, dar folositi produsele cu care sunteti deja obisnuite si acomodate. La fel ramane la aprecierea voastra cat de dramatic si alungit il aplicati, eu am preferat o linie destul de discreta, tinand cont de machiajul puternic al buzelor.

Time for liner! I used a cream one with an angled brush, but you can use whatever you wish. It’s your choice how long and dramatic you wing it! I prefered it thinner, considering the strong, bold color of the lips.



8) Cu o pensula plata si aceasi nuanta de maro deschis mat (Buck) subliniez linia genelor inferioare

With a flat top brush and the same brown matte shadow (Buck), I enhance the lower lash line.



9) Doua straturi de mascara si gene false, daca doriti! 😉

Two coats of mascara and false lashes, if you wish! 😉


10) Destul cu ochii! 😀 Buzele…..  un contur rosu aplicat pe toata suprafata buzelor pentru a face ca rujul sa reziste mai mult si pentru a da o tenta de burgundy rosiatic odata aplicat! Am folosit o pensula pentru a uniforma culorile! Iubesc sa combin nuantele intre ele si sa obtin altele mai interesante! Un creion mai inchis sau mai deschis, din aceeasi familie cromatica cu nuanta rujului, poate inchide sau deschide (dupa caz) o nuanta de ruj de care poate v-ati plictisit! 😉

Enough with the eyes 😀 Moving to the lips….. a red pencil applyed all over the lips to make the colour last longer and to give that redish pop to a violet burgundy lipstick! I used a lip brush to mix the colours together! I love combining shades and get some new interesting ones! A lip pencil, brighter or darker, but from the same chromatic family with your lipstick, can open or darken a shade that you got borred by maybe! 😉




Revenind la ten, peste fondul de ten o usoara conturare cu o pudra bronzanta sub osul pometilor, un fard de obraz intr-o nuanta piersicie, si o atingere de iluminator deasupra blush-ului si pe V-ul buzei superioare, dar totul foarte discret! Punctul principal este machiajul buzelor si nu dorim sa distragem atentia prin alte artificii. 😉 “LESS IS MORE!”

Going back to the skin, over the foundation a little bit of contouring underneath the cheek bone using a bronzing powder, a peachy blush and a touch of highlighter on top and on the Cupid’s Bow, everything very finely! The focus point is on the lips and we don’t want to pay attention with other artifices. 😉 “LESS IS MORE!”

Hope all the details help and promise to make a similar explained post for the complexion make up too! Meanwhile maybe you’ll tell me what you think about this one and if you switch to wear burgundy / Marsala instead of red lipstick during the holidays?! 😉

  2. Eu spun DA, acestei nuanțe de ruj. Burgundy a devenit si nuanta mea preferata, dar nici la rujul roșu nu o sa renunț ☺️. Esti superba, si iti vine foarte bine aceast make-up. Trebuie sa ma înveți si pe mine câteva trucuri 😉, pana una alta o sa țin cont de sfaturile tale de aici si o sa încerc sa ma machiez si singura. Kisses.
