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?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Bitten & Burlesque make-up look

IMG_8225

Kot obljubljeno sem vam danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčil Bitten in Burlesque, ki sem ju ocenila v prejšnji objavi. Prav tako sem vam izdala, da bom naredila zadimljen videz oči na moj način. To je prav tako moj prvi bolj dramatičen izgled, ki sem vam ga pripravila. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As promised I prepared a make-up look for you today using Makeup Geek eyeshadows Bitten and Burlesque that I reviewed in the previous post. I also revealed that I would be doing a smokey eye look my way. This is also my first more dramatic look that I prepared for you. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8198

Kot omenjeno sem uporabila senčili Bitten in Burlesque, ampak ker to seveda ni bilo dovolj, sem si pomagala tudi z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili. Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Latte, ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva (1.), prav tako pa sem ga potegnila nižje, v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Bitten v samo gubo veke (2.). Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

As mentioned I used the Bitten and Burlesque eyeshadows but because that  wasn’t enough I helped myself with other Makeup Geek shadows. First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Latte that served as an transitional shade (1.) but I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Bitten only in the crease (2.). I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

Ker sem si želela malo več dimenzije, sem v zunanji kotiček očesa (3.) s ploščatim čopičem nanesla Americano in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Burlesque čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Bitten senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili. Nanesla sem črni gel eyeliner za še bolj dramatičen izgled.

Because I wanted a little more dimension I applied Americano with a flat brush on my outer eye corner (3.) and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Burlesque over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. With a more narrow blending brush and Bitten eyeshadow I went over the crease one more time to blend it together. I applied black gel eyeliner for an even more dramatic look.

Look3Collage

Na spodnjo veko sem ob trepalnicah nanesla Bitten in senčilo malo zblendala s senčilom Latte. Nanesla sem maskaro na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice. Da sem oko malo odprla sem v notranje kotičke nanesla pikico senčila Shimma Shimma in na notranji rob spodnje veke Stila barvico za oči v odtenku Topaz (bež).

I applied Bitten on the lower eyelid by the lashes and blended the eyeshadow with a little Latte shadow. I applied mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes. To open the eye a little I put a dot of Shimma Shimma in the inner corner of the eye and Stila Topaz (beige) eyeliner on my waterline.

IMG_8215

Ker sem oči močno naličila, sem na obrazu uporabila bolj nežne, nevtralne odtenke. Za piko na i bi morala uporabiti še umetne trepalnice a ker sem hitela na piknik (tako je, takšna sem šla popoldan na piknik, ljudje so verjetno mislili, da sem zmešana :D) sem jih izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

Because my eyes were so dark I used more delicate, neutral shades on the face. False eyelashes would be the cherry on the top but because I was rushing to go on a picnic (yes, I went on a picnic in the middle of the day looking like this, people probably thought I was crazy :D) I skipped that. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Seznam ličil/Make-up list: obraz/face (Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, Maybeline Shine Free Loose powder, Urban Decay Beached Bronzer Bronzed, Essence Pure Nude highlighter, Zoeva Coral blush palette, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow), ustnice/lips (Essence Longlasting lipliner Lovely Frappuccino, YSL Rouge Volupte 2).

Makeup Geek: Barcelona Beach in Latte

Kako leto sem že gledala tuje blogerke, kako so hvalile in veselo uporabljale Makeup Geek senčila. Na internetu sem iskala možnosti kako priti do njih in potem sem en dan dobila e-pošto od Beauty Bay strani in na moje veselje so dobili njihova senčila. Takoj sem oddala prvo naročilo štirih senčil in med njimi sta bili tudi Barcelona Beach in Latte. Senčki sem kupila z namenom, da jih bom uporabljala kot prehodno barvo v gubi veke.

I was watching foreign bloggers for about a year happily using and praising the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I was looking for ways to get them and then one day I got an e-mail from Beauty Bay and I was happy to see that they got their eyeshadows. I immediately ordered four eyeshadows and among them were Barcelona Beach and Latte. I bought the eyeshadows with the intention to use them as transition colors in my crease.

Barvi sta sicer na prvi pogled izredno podobni, ampak Latte je malo bolj temna in s toplimi podtoni, Barcelona Beach pa ima hladne podtone. Torej v mojih očeh popolnoma različni senčki. 🙂

The colors are really similar at first glance, but Latte is deeper and with warm undertones, Barcelona Beach has cool undertones. So in my eyes totally different eyeshadows. 🙂

Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach senčko opisuje kot srednje peščeno mat barvo in mislim, da je dobro opisana. Latte je opisana kot srednje rjava mat barva. Latte ima po mojem mnenju kar nekaj rdečega pigmenta not, kar daje senčki toploto in globino. Obe senčki sta mi super všeč, uporabljam ju vedno ko si naličim oči, Barcelono Beach, ko imam bolj “hladne” sence na očeh, Latte pa ko uporabim “tople” sence. Senčki občasno tudi pomešam in ju tako uporabim. Barcelona Beach je rahlo bolj mehka in kremasta kot Latte a kljub temu sta obe senčki izredno kvalitetni in preprosti za uporabo. Barcelona Beach ima malo sijaja, čeprav je v osnovi mat barva.

Makeup Geek describes Barcelona Beach as medium sand shade with a matte finish and I think that’s a good description. Latte is described as matte medium brown. Latte has in my opinion some red pigments which gives the shadow warmth and depth. I love both of the eyeshadows and I use them every time I put make-up on my eyes, Barcelona Beach when I have “cool” shadows on my eyes and Latte when I use “warm” eyeshadows. Occasionally I mix them and use them that way. Barcelona Beach is a bit more soft and creamy then Latte but nevertheless both eyeshadows are great quality and easy to use. Barcelona Beach has a bit of shine to it although it’s still a matte color.

Embalaža je minimalistična, kar pomeni da dobite samo senčko v metalni embalaži, ki pride v majhni kartonasti kuverti. Sama s tem nisem imela težav, ker imam Z paleto že zelo dolgo, tako da sem senčke dala tja, ampak imejte v mislih, da boste morale kupiti še neko paleto, kjer boste sence hranile. Prav tako za Makeup Geek ne potrebujete magnetnih nalepk, saj se same “primejo” za paleto. Za senčko sem dala 6,60€ kar se mi za tako kvaliteto ne zdi veliko, saj lahko kupite eno po eno senčko in si sestavite svojo idealno paleto. Senčke in Z paleto lahko kupite na Beauty Bayu. Obsežne swatche si lahko ogledate tukaj. Kmalu bom ocenila in poslikala tudi druge barve. Imate ve kakšne Makeup Geek senčke, katere priporočate ali si jih želite? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

The packaging is minimalistic which means it comes in a metal pan and the pan in a small cardboard envelope. I didn’t have any problems with that because I own a Z palette already so I put the eyeshadows in there, but have in mind that you will have to buy some kind of palette to store them in. You don’t need magnet stickers for the Makeup Geek eyeshadows because the pans “stick” to the palette on their own. I paid 6,60€ for one which is OK for a shadow in this quality and you can buy one by one and assemble your perfect palette. You can buy the eyeshadows and the Z palette on Beauty Bay. For extensive swatches click here. Soon I will review and photograph the other colors I own. Do you own any Makeup Geek eyeshadows and which ones do you recommend or wish to have?
