Grandstand make-up look

img_8763

Kot vedno sem vam tudi danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo senčila, ki sem ga ocenila v prejšnji objavi in sicer je govora o Makeup Geek Grandstand “foiled” senčilu. Spet sem se odločila za malo bolj dramatičen izgled in upam, da vam bo všeč.

As always I have prepared a make-up look using the eyeshadow that I reviewed in the previous post and the shadow I’m talking about is Makeup Geek’s Grandstand foiled eyeshadow. Again I have decided to do a more dramatic look and I hope you’ll like it.

Uporabila sem torej senčilo Grandstand, ampak ker tega izgleda nisem mogla doseči samo z enim senčilom sem si pomagala še z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili in sicer Shimma Shimma, Latte in Americano. Veko sem pripravila z bazo za senčila, ki sem jo fiksirala z bež senčilom. Nato sem uporabila Latte (1.), ki je služilo kot prehodna barva. Senčila nisem nanesla previsoko ampak v gubo očesa in malenkost nad gubo s čopičem za blendanje. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem z najtemnejšim senčilom, Americano (2.) katero sem z manjšim čopičem nanesla na zunanjo četrtino, notranjo četrtino očesa in oba dela previdno povezala, ne da bi šla nad očesno gubo. To sem ponavljala dokler ni bilo dovolj temno.

So I used the eyeshadow Grandstand but because I couldn’t achieve this look with just one eyeshadow I helped myself with some other Makeup Geek eyeshadows, namely Shimma Shimma, Latte and Americano. I prepared the eyelid with an eyeshadow base that I set with a beige eyeshadow. Then I used Latte (1.) that served as a transitional color. I didn’t apply the eyeshadow too high but just in the eye crease and a tiny bit over it with a blending brush. I repeated this twice. I then continued with the darkest eyeshadow, Americano (2.) which I applied with a smaller brush in the outer and inner quarter of the lid and carefully linked them together by not going above the crease. I repeated this until it was dark enough.

Sledilo je senčilo Grandstand (3.) katero sem s ploščatim čopičem nanesla na sredino veke. Pazila sem, da nisem šla preveč v kotičke očesa a da sem senčilo vseeno povezala s temno rjavim. Senčilo sem prav tako nanesla še enkrat čez s prstom. Da sem senčili povezala sem z manjšim čopičem in Americano (2.) senčilom šla narahlo čez robe Grandstand senčila, da je bilo vse povezano in da nismo imeli nobenega ostrega prehoda. Na spodnjo veko sem, čisto ob rob trepalnic, nanesla Americano (2.), razmazala oziroma zmehčala vse skupaj z Latte (1.) senčilom in na sredino nanesla malenkost Grandstand (3.) senčila.

Next was Grandstand  (3.) which I applied with a flat brush to the center of the eyelid. I was careful not to go too close to the corners of my eye but still to blend it together with the dark brown eyeshadow. I applied the eyeshadow with my finger as well. To blend the eyeshadows even more I took a smaller blending brush and Americano (2.) shadow and lightly brushed over the edge of the Grandstand shadow. On my lower lid I put Americano (2.) right under my eyelashes and blended it together with Latte (1.) and applied a bit of Grandstand (3.) eyeshadow in the middle.

Za zaključek sem pod obrv in v kotičke očesa nanesla Shimma Shimma (4.) senčilo. Ker sem želela vse skupaj še malenkost poglobiti sem s tankim čopičem nanesla gel liner in naredila tanko,ravno črto ob rob trepalnic, na notranji rob spodnje veke pa Urban Decay črno barvico za oči.

To finish it off I put some Shimma Shimma (4.) under my eyebrows and in my inner corners. Because I wanted to deepen everything even more I applied gel liner with a thin brush and made a thin, straight line at the edge of the eyelashes and applied some black eye kohl from Urban Decay on my waterline.

Ker so bile oči spet središče dogajanja, sem na obraz nanesla bolj nežne rožnate odtenke. Za piko na i bi lahko uporabila še umetne trepalnice a ker jih redko uporabljam, sem se odločila proti. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta izgled všeč?

Because the eyes were in the center again I applied more soft rosey shades to my face. I could have applied false lashes to top it off but because I rarely use them I decided not to. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Makeup Geek: Grandstand

img_8723

Čeprav Makeup Geek senčila ocenjujem ponavadi v paru, pa je to edino “foiled” senčilo, ki ga imam in zato ga ocenjujem posamezno, saj je tudi cena višja, kot pri navadnih Makeup Geek senčilih.

Although I usually review Makeup Geek eyeshadows in pairs, this is the only foiled eyeshadow that I have so I’m reviewing it by itself and also the price is higher than usual with the “normal” Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek trdi, da so njihova “foiled” senčila nekaj posebnega, saj so hibrid med kremnimi senčili in senčili v prahu/kamnu. Ponujajo neverjetno pigmentacijo v kombinaciji s kovinskim finišem. Senčilo je res izredno kremasto a hkrati ni kremno. Že na otip je drugačno. Meni je ta formula res odlična in vredna svoje cene.

Makeup Geek claims that their foiled eyeshadows are something special because they are a hybrid between cream and powder eyeshadows. They give incredible pigmentation in combination with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow is really very creamy but not a cream. Even at the touch it’s different. This formula is really excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

Samo senčilo Grandstand je srednje rožnato zlato z malenkost sivkasto-vijoličnega podtona in kovinskim finišem seveda. Sama bi senčilo opisala kot rožnato zlato. Senčilo torej je izredno pigmentirano, najboljše se nanaša s ploščatim čopičem ali celo prstom in se tudi lepo razmazuje. Senčilo je obstojno cel dan in se kljub kremasti teksturi ne poseda v gubo veke (vedno uporabljam bazo za senčila). Sama ga uporabljam za večerne izglede in ponavadi čez celo veko ali na sredini veke za nekaj več.

The eyeshadow Grandstand is a medium rose gold with a hint of taupe undertones and of course a foiled finish. I would describe the color as rose gold. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and applies best with a flat brush or even with a finger and also blends nicely. It lasts all day and doesn’t set in the crease although it’s so creamy (I always use an eyeshadow base). I use it mostly for evening looks and usually over the whole eyelid or on the center of the lid for something more.

Tako kot ostala, tudi to senčilo ni v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, za hranjenje. Cena enega senčila je 10€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem ga tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je pripravil nova senčila, ki so že na voljo v tujini, tokrat tudi ta s “foiled” finišem. Se že veselim novega nakupa. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo tega senčila.

Like the other ones, this eyeshadow doesn’t come in its own packaging so you’ll need a magnet palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 10€ on the Beauty Bay site where I bought it. Makeup Geek has developed new eyeshadows that are already available abroad, this time also foiled eyeshadows. I look forward to purchasing some new shades. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a makeup look on Friday with this eyeshadow.

Mango Tango & Sorbet make-up look

IMG_7834

Kot sem omenila že v prejšnji objavi, v kateri sem ocenjevala Makeup Geek senčila, sem se odločila, da ko bom ocenjevala senčila, palete, da bom v naslednji objavi tudi pokazala kako sem senčila tudi uporabila. Tako sem tokrat s senčili Mango Tango in Sorbet naredila ravno pravšnji spomladanski izgled.

As I mentioned in the previous post, in which I reviewed the Makeup Geek eyeshadows, I decided that whenever I’ll review eyeshadows, palettes, I will also show you how I used them in the next post. So this time I used Mango Tango and Sorbet to do this makeup look, just right for spring.

Ker sem potrebovala nekaj bronastega, sem uporabila še eno Makeup Geek senčilo in sicer Grandstand. Senčilo bo tudi kmalu ocenjeno. Torej za oči sem uporabila samo 3 senčila, tako da je ta izgled res enostaven za poustvarit.

Because I needed something bronzy I used another Makeup Geek shadow, namely Grandstand. The eyeshadow will be reviewed soon. Because I only used 3 eyeshadows for the eyes, this look is really easy to recreate.

Veko sem najprej pripravila z bazo za senčila in takoj nadaljevala s prehodno barvo Sorbet, katero sem nanesla v očesno gubo. Ker je senčilo res svetlo sem ga blendala navzgor proti obrvi. Ta postopek sem ponovila dvakrat. Nato sem nadaljevala kar z Mango Tango. Najprej sem ga nanesla suhega, čez celo veko a ne nad očesno gubo. Ko sem končala, sem se odločila, da ni dovolj pigmentirano in sem zato senčko nanesla na veko še mokro. To je bilo že boljše. 🙂 Da sem sredino veke malo osvetlila, sem vzela prvo zlato senčilo, ki mi je bilo pri roki in s prstom potapkala po sredini. Preden sem nadaljevala z obrazom sem z micelarno vodico in vato potegnila ob veki navzgor, da sem ustvarila ravno in čisto črto.

I primed my eyelid with an eyeshadow base and continued with the transition shade Sorbet, that I applied in my crease. Because the shade is really light I blended it upwards to the brow. I repeated this step twice. Then I continued with Mango Tango. First I applied it dry all over the lid, but not above the crease. When I finished I decided that it was not pigmented enough and applied the shadow wet. That was better. 🙂 To highlight the center of the lid I applied a gold eyeshadow, that was on hand, and dabbed it with my finger on the center of the lid. Before I continued with the face, I took my micellar water and cleaned by my eyelid upwards to create a straight and clean line.

Nadaljevala sem z obrazom, tekoči puder, korektor, puder v prahu. Nato sem dokončala oči. Ker nisem želela oranžne senčke pod očmi, sem dala na spodnjo veko Grandstand. V notranjem kotičku očesa in pod obrvjo sem osvetlila z Mary-Lou Manizer osvetljevalcem od The Balma. Osvetljevalec sem prav tako nanesla na obraz (vrh ličk, nos, brada) in za rdečilo uporabila kar Cindy-Lou Manizer. Prav tako nikoli ne grem ven brez mojega najljubšega bronzerja Beached Bronzer od Urban Decay, s katerim sem zasenčila obraz.

I continued with the face, liquid foundation, concealer, loose powder. Then I finished my eyes. Because I didn’t want an orange eyeshadow under my eyes, I used Grandstand on my lower eyelid. I highlighted in the inner corner of the eye and under the eyebrow with the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter from The Balm. I also applied the highlighter on my face (cheekbone, nose, chin) and used Cindy-Lou Manizer as my blush. I never leave the house without my favorite bronzer from Urban Decay, the Beached Bronzer that I used to contour my face.

Ker se mi je zdelo, da nekaj manjka, sem nad trepalnicami naredila tanko črto z rjavo barvico. Uredila sem si obrvi, nanesla maskaro in zaključila z glosom na ustnicah od Khroma Beauty. Upam, da vam je bil ta enostaven izgled všeč. Kakšen izgled imate vi radi za pomlad? Pustite mi komentar.

Because I felt that something was missing I made a thin line above my eyelashes with a brown pencil. I did my brows, applied mascara and finished with a gloss on the lips from Khroma Beauty. I hope you liked this easy make-up look. What look do you like for the spring? Leave a comment.
