Last night in Moscow, living a #Travelife, we went to the Bolshoi Theater to watch the ballet Les Sylphides in the New Theater. The Bolshoi has two theaters: the Historic Theater and the New Theater.
As we had excellent tickets — the best seats in the house — I decided to dress up and get my hair and makeup done. Fortunately, The Standart Moscow, Russia’s first design hotel, has a beauty salon on the third floor, so this was a very easy decision to make.

Basically it was an elevator ride down to the Fen Dry Bar. Since this beauty salon opened at The Standart Moscow, many Moscow celebrities have been coming here for a quick shampoo and blow-dry, or to get their make up done for a nice dinner out.

I can understand why.
The Fen Dry Bar is stylish, relaxing and very private since it’s located in Moscow’s newest five-star hotel. So it’s a good choice for a hair and make-up session in Moscow.
One lady did my shampoo and then set my hair in curls. I was just planning to have a blow-dry but the manager suggested curling my hair in an intensive way; so I thought: “Why not?”

Then another lady did my make-up.
Again, there were so many choices for make-up styles and some of them were actually very amusing. One style was called something like “I woke up like this,” and I guess this meant a very natural style for make-up.
This is usually my style, by the way, as I hardly ever wear make-up.

But as we were going to the Bolshoi for a ballet performance, and with very good seats, and then going out to dinner, I decided to opt for the more glamorous make-up look. The makeup artist suggested smokey eyes and red lips. Apparently, all the fashionable Moscow girls are wearing red lipstick these days.
So again, as I am in Moscow, I thought to myself: “Why not?”
It was a very different look from what I usually do, but it made for a rather fun start to a wonderful evening of culture and good food in Moscow, living a #Travelife.
