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.

Clinique: Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer

Moja logika je sledeča: če se že ličim, potem rada prekrijem vse napake. In ker imam zadnje čase grozne težave s kožo, potrebujem nekaj bolj prekrivnega, kot mi je to nudil Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum puder. Tale puder sem videla pri mnogih vlogerkah, ki so ga vse pohvalile in sem se odločila, da ga poskusim.

My logic is as follows: if I’m already putting make-up on, then I want to cover everything. And because I have been having terrible skin problems recently, I need something with more coverage, than my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation was giving me. I saw this foundation in a lot of beauty vlogs, and because everyone was praising it, I decided to try it out.

Puder je v stekleni embalaži z aplikatorjem na gobico, podobno kot so korektorji, le da je tukaj aplikator veliko večji, ter z belim napisom. Meni je embalaža všeč, saj je učinkovita, čeprav imam še vedno najraje embalaže s pumpico. Zanima me kako učinkovita bo ta, ko bom imela še čisto malo produkta notri. A o tem ko pridemo do tega.

The foundation is in a glass container with white lettering and a doe foot applicator, similar like in concealers, just that the applicator here is much bigger. I like the packaging, because it’s effective, although I prefer to have a pump. I do wonder how effective this packaging will be, when there’s almost no product in it. But I’ll worry about that when I’ll need to.

Imam odtenek je 02 Alabaster, ki je zame malenkost pretemen oziroma pretopel. Izbira odtenkov pri nas, je po mojem mnenju obupna. Tiste, ki imate izredno svetlo kožo boste težko prišle do svojega odtenka. Jaz ga ponavadi pri bradi zmešam z drugim, svetlejšim, pudrom, tako da ni taka razlika med vratom in obrazom. Sama bi potrebovala pol odtenka svetlejši puder z neutralnim podtonom. A tega žal ni, saj svetlejšega od tega pri nas nisem našla, čeprav je na uradni strani veliko več odtenkov na izbiro.

I have the shade 02 Alabaster, which is a bit too dark, warm for me. The shade selection is in my opinion terrible. If you have very light skin, you’ll have a difficult time to match your shade. I usually mix this one with a lighter one at the chin, so there’s not a big difference between the face and neck. I myself would need half a shade lighter foundation with a neutral undertone. But I haven’t found a lighter shade than this one in our stores, although there’s many more shades to pick from on the official website.

Levo/Left: Brez ličil. / No make-up.               Desno/Right: Samo puder. / Foundation only.

Tekoči puder nanesem direktno na obraz z aplikatorjem. Ponavadi aplikator namočim 3x za cel obraz. Res je, da je čisto malo produkta dovolj za cel obraz, ampak jaz pač rada pretiravam. 😉 Puder je izredno prekriven, tako da so tudi najhujši izbruhi prekriti. Prekrivnost lahko povečate z dodatnim nanosom produkta. Produkt je precej gost. Na začetku sem ga razmazovala z Beauty Blenderjem a mi izgled ni bil všeč, zato sem poskusila s čopičem in sedaj ne uporabljam več drugega. Prekrivnost s čopičem je prav tako večja, kot z gobico.

I apply the foundation directly to the face with the applicator. I usually dip the applicator 3x in the foundation, for the whole face. It’s true, that a little goes a long way, but I like to exaggerate. 😉 The foundation has a really great (full) coverage, so even the worst outbreaks are covered. The coverage can be increased by additional application of the product. The product is pretty thick. In the beginning I blended the foundation with the Beauty Blender, but I didn’t like the look, so I tried with a brush and now I don’t use anything else. The coverage with the brush is much better.

Belkast odsev pri fotografiranju z bliskavico. / White cast/flash back when taking a photo with flash.

Puder je opazen na koži. Ni eden tistih, ki se zlijejo v kožo in je, kot da nič nimaš na obrazu a vseeno ne pušča težkega občutka na koži. Jaz ga fiksiram s pudrom v prahu, saj le-ta ni mat. Zdi se mi, da se relativno hitro porablja, ampak spet je to odvisno od tega, koliko ga nanesete. Jaz ga nanesem veliko. Moram opozoriti, da je viden bel odsev, pri slikanju z bliskavico.

The foundation is visible on the skin. It’s not one of those, that blends into the skin and it’s like you have nothing on your face, but it still doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on the skin. I set it with a loose powder, because it’s not fully matte. I do feel that I’m using it up quite fast, but again it depends on how much you apply. I do apply a lot. I have to point out that there is white cast/flash back, when photographing with flash.

Končni izgled. / Finished look.

S pudrom sem zadovoljna, najbolj zaradi prekrivnosti in obstojnosti, saj se ne razmazuje ali bledi. Veliko bolj zadovoljna bi bila, če bi lahko dobila kakšen svetlejši odtenek. Sama sem ga kupila v Mullerju v Avstriji in zadnj odštela okoli 32€. Pri nas v Mullerju boste zanj odštele 38€, v Douglasu (Avstrija) 34€, v Travel Free shopu pa le 27€. Razlike v ceni so ogromne in če le imate možnost, priporočam nakup v Avstriji oziroma v TF shopu.

I am satisfied with the foundation, mostly because of the coverage and the longevity, because it doesn’t smudge or fade. I would be a lot happier though if I could get a lighter shade. I bought it in Muller in Austria and paid around 32€ for it. In Slovenia in Muller you will pay 38€, in Douglas (Austria) 34€, in Travel Free shop only 27€. Price differences are huge and if you have the chance, I recommend buying it in Austria or in the TF shop.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

P.s.: Upam, da so vas moje fotke nasmejale. 😀 / I hope my photos made you laugh. 😀
