The geisha is an assistant to the Oirans, the geisha were forbidden of having former personal relation with the customers. They usually use white power to cover their face and the front & back of their neck. This white powder contained lead which would cause serious health problems, they finished the look by wearing black eyeliner and red lipstick.
To see a Geisha in Okiya, you have to know someone who has connections to the Okiya. You cannot see a Geisha face to face. To call a Geisha to your banquet you have to tell the Ryotei where you are having it. The Ryotei is a high class Japanese restaurant furnished with a large private rooms.
The Ryotei will then arrange the number of geisha according to the budget of the guest wishes. A geisha has a patron, who is called Danna, a Danna is a powerful wealthy man that pays for all the expenses of a geisha, to be become a geisha requires a lot of time and money. The donna would pay and take care of the geisha throughout her life. It was high society to become a Donna, it showed that you had enough money to be Patron of a geisha, their relationship was not inherently sexual.
Many people confused geisha with oiran, oiran were high class sex workers while geisha were not sex worker they were technically entertainers, they were trained hostess in the art of entertaining, they were skilled in music, dance and conversations. Geisha were known for their refined and artistic style of hospitality.
Oirans were extremely ornate sometimes wearing as many 5-7 kimonos and wigs that would weigh op to 10 kg bare foot or in scandal that were as high as 20 cm. One night with an oiran could cost someone as much as a year income during the Edo period.

Welcome to our world where some getting richer from the pandemic while some getting poorer.
It is Five years I have been blogging during this period I have written a lot about fashion, done more than 120 post. I have also written my blog books style and concept by Rita Roland volume one, two and three.
Now the question is what Next?
That is why I and Mr Kristof Van Den Bossche decided to do an exhibition of our work, date and time will be announced.
This project is very dear to our heart.
Together with Mr Kristof Van Den Bossche I have shot more than 100 Outfit and concept where by we use visual images to tell stories.
We also want to use this opportunity to thank all our sponsors.
Who are you? And what you do is important to be represented and share with the World properly. The portrait picture help to achieve this, taking a portrait picture of yourself is good, but should be done by a professional portrait photographer, http://www.fotograk.be I would like to throw some light on how you have to pose for your portrait shoot, this type of shoot is different from the regular fashion shoot were the main focus is on the cloth/ outfit. The portrait shoot is all about the face. When you are having your portrait shoot taking you can either look directly into the camera or you can look off the camera either way the goal is to intrigue feeling and bring out different types of emotions in you. A good portrait should show some elements of your personality. Somebody should be able to look at your portrait and say something about you.
Styling and choosing the correct outfit for your portrait shoot and doing the right make up will help you achieve a better result. It is a most to dress correctly for your portrait shoot. This is because the right outfit, expression, and pose is very necessary for your profile picture.
These type of portrait are not just headshot but it goes further to tell a story, so the right location, right attitude, and a professional photographer makes all the differences.
The Irony of life is that those who wear mask often tells us more truth than those with open faces.
The Venice masquerade ball has been around since the 11th century and has played a major role in Venetian history.
During the masquerade ball the participant attend in costume wearing mask. The Venetian carnival tradition is most famous for its distinctive masks. It is very common that people attend the Venice ball wearing elaborate costume and masks.
The Venice ball is an annual festival held in Venice, Italy. The Venice ball is not for everybody because it can be intensely crowded, hotel and restaurant can become very expensive, never the less it is a unique occasion and a time to see the city in a new exciting light.
In this modern time the intrigue of wearing mask has been enhanced by the movie Casanova and Eyes Wild Shut.
There are different types of masks ranging from exclusive mask, traditional Venetian mask or Bauta mask. The Bauta mask is the most popular one because is used for disguise. The whole spectacular happening during the Venice carnival draw visitors from all over the world to Venice.
I often get ask how I keep my skin so smooth, clear and fresh, to be honest I use a lot of moisturizing cream at least twice a day this is because I have a very dry skin, the moisturizing cream keep my skin hydrated.
I also drink a lot of water between 1.5 to 2 liters a day. This is very good for the skin and it helps to lose weight if need be.
You have to also invest in skincare product, because it is useless to apply make up without the proper canvas, you can use make up to express yourself and to bring out your natural beauty but what you cannot do is to apply make up on a dry skin it will look like a mask and that is not what we want.
Developing a skin care routine that suit your skin type is very important you have to understand your skin and what it need to maintain it.
It is also very important to clean your make up brushes once or twice a week it all depends on how frequent you use them this is necessary to avoid bacteria.
After applying foundation, I dust my face with translucent powder to keep my face Matt. I also apply blush on my cheeks.
Above all to get a clear and smooth skin it is essential that you eat well, sleep enough and exercise regularly.
MY SMILE IS THE MOST VALUABLE BEAUTY TIP I HAVE

It is very necessary to style the tutu skirt without looking like a little girl who is playing dress up. That is why I put together my two best way to style the tutu skirt.
Wearing the tutu skirt with a detailed lace top is very classy and sexy, to play up the girlish root, I paired it with an edgy spike shoe to crown the look up I added a hat this type of look is beautiful and I cannot keep talking about it.
The tutu skirt combine with a bustier top this scream sexiness, this ballet chic way of dressing call for Spring and Summer. This is a sensual way to combine the tutu skirt. It also a brilliant choice for bigger women and those who like to show their neckline. It is perfect outfit for dinner, balls and weddings. Shoes to wear with the tutu skirt.
High heeled sandal is perfect because this add to your height and this help you to stand tall and elegant.
Ballet flats are better with knee-length tutu skirt, when wearing the maxi tutu skirt avoid flats. Gladiator tie up sandals are very good with short tutu skirt. In conclusion full tutu skirt translates to fun and dramatic look.
In every woman there is a nun, naughty and sexy side so free the nun in you and put on that damn sexy outfit because playing by the rule is tough and boring.
Why is it that the woman sexuality is under so much scrutiny, why can she do that she please without been called a million names.
When she wears revealing cloth they say she is not the woman I used to know, she still the same woman, but she just let her naughty ans sexy side loos.
There are a lot of women out there who will talk and stare, who will never let down their hair, and they are quick to pass judgment at other women because they are scared and don’t know what they are missing.
So don’t be bothered about what people saying just leave your life be happy, naughty and sexy free the nun in you.
A fascinator is a headpiece which originated as a form of lightweight knitted head covering, since 1990 the term refers to a formal headwear worn as an alternative hat. Fascinator has become a high society head piece which can be worn to royal event like wedding, tea party, and all type of get together.

Fascinator serves minimal purpose they do have some qualities like it elongate your silhouette by adding the illusion of height if you get the fascinator custom made it can be a true piece of art work and can be used to express personality. Fascinator hat is timeless, chic and sure to be noticed at your next special event.
