Toxic make-up look

img_9287

Ne samo, da slavimo 1. obletnico bloga in da je to zadnja objava to leto, prav tako je to 100. objava. Ponosna sem, da sem uspela v enem letu objaviti 100 objav, takšnih in drugačnih, še bolj vesela pa sem, da sem imela več obiska, kot sem si kdajkoli predstavljala, da ga bom imela. Zato se želim tudi zahvaliti vsem, ki ste kdaj slučajno ali namerno pokukali na moj blog, kaj pokomentirali in se prijavili v mojo bazo rednih obiskovalcev.

Not only that we’re celebrating the 1st anniversary of the blog and that this is the last post in this year it’s also the 100th post. I’m proud to have succeeded to post 100 different posts in a year, I’m even happier that I had more traffic than I ever imagined that I would ever have. Therefore I want to thank everyone that accidentally or intentionally stopped at my blog, commented or subscribed.

Zadnja objava je tako makeup izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčila, ki sem ga v zadnji objavi ocenila in sicer je to Toxic, prav tako pa sem ustvarila izgled, ki je primeren tudi za zadnji večer v letu, za silvestrovo. A nikar ne skrbite, saj je izgled izredno enostavno poustvariti, saj uporabim samo 3 senčila.

The last post is a make-up look using the Makeup Geek eyeshadow that I reviewed in my last post namely Toxic and I also created a look that is suitable for the New Year’s Eve. But don’t worry because this look is very easy to recreate because I only used 3 eyeshadows.

img_9277

Začela sem z bazo za veke in bež senčilom s katerim sem fiksirala bazo. Nato sledi prvo Makeup Geek senčilo in sicer Unexpected (1.), katero nanesem kot prehodno barvo, torej v gubo veke in ga zblendam s širšim čopičem malenkost nad gubo in tudi pod gubo. To ponovim dvakrat, tako da je senčilo enakomerno nanešeno. Potem nadaljujem z Vintage (2.) senčilom, katero nanesem na celo veko, do očesne gube. Senčilo nanašam, dokler ni enakomerno nanešeno. S prvim čopičem grem brez dodatnega produkta čez gubo veke, da senčili združim.

I started with an eyeshadow base and a beige eyeshadow to set the base. Then I used the first Makeup Geek eyeshadow, Latte (1.) that I apply as a transitional color in the eye crease and blend it with a wider blending brush a bit above and under the crease. I repeat this twice so the eyeshadow is evenly applied. Then I continue with Vintage (2.) eyeshadow that I apply all over the lid, up to the eye crease. I apply the eyeshadow until it’s not evenly applied. I go over the eye crease with the first brush and no additional product to blend the eyeshadows together.

img_9267

Nato sledi Toxic (3.) katero sem s prstom nanesla čez Vintage, torej čez celo veko. Senčilo narahlo tapkam po veki in to ponavaljam, dokler ni senčilo lepo nanešeno čez celo veko. Z manjšim, ožjim, čopičem za blendanje zajamem malo Vintage senčila in ga nanesem pod gubo ter v zunanji kotiček očesa, da povežem obe senčili. Za zaključek sem narisala še tanko črno črto ob rob trepalnic ter nanesla maskaro. Na spodnjo veko, čisto ob rob trepalnic sem nanesla Vintage (2.) in šla čez z Unexpected (1.) senčilom, da sem robove zabrisala, na notranji rob veke sem nanesla črno barvico ter zaključila z maskaro.

Next is Toxic (3.) that I apply with my finger all over Vintage across the whole lid. I tap the eyeshadow lightly on the eyelid and repeat until the eyeshadow is evenly applied all over the lid. With a smaller, more narrow blending brush I take a little Vintage and apply it under my eye crease and in the outer corner of the eye to blend the both eyeshadows. To finish it off I drew a thin black line at the edge of the eyelashes and applied mascara. On my lower eyelid right under the eyelashes I applied Vintage (2.) and went over with Unexpected (1.) to blend the edges, put some black eye kohl on my waterline and concluded with mascara.

V notranji kotiček očesa in pod obrv pa sem nanesla kar osvetljevalec katerega sem uporabila na obrazu in sicer MAC Tutu iz božične kolekcije (Sweet Peach). Ker je to silvestrski izgled sem na obraz sicer nanesla bolj nežne rožnate odtenke, malce več osvetljevalca kot ponavadi, na ustnice pa drzno temno šminko in sicer Jouer Clove, ki je izredno udobna, lahko pa nanesete tudi kakšno bež šminko ali nežen rožnati glos. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj.

In my inner eye corner and under my eyebrows I applied the highlighter I used on my face, MAC Tutu from the Christmas collection (Sweet Peach). Because this is a New Year’s Eve look I applied more subtle pink shades to the face, a bit more highlighter than usual and a more bold dark lipstick Jouer Clove, that is extremely comfortable, but you can also apply any nude lipstick or a subtle pink gloss. The List of the other products I used is down below.

Vsem želim prijeten večer jutri, v novem letu pa veliko sreče, zdravja in seveda uspehov na osebni in/ali poslovni ravni.

I wish you all a pleasant evening tomorrow and a lot of luck, health and success in your personal and/or business life in the New Year.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte!😉

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.

img_8748

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.

img_8752

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.

grandcollage

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.

img_8764

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! 😉

Seznam ličil/Make-up list: obraz/face(Clinique Beyond Perfecting concealer and foundation, Catrice Camouflage concealer, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, ELF Studio pressed powder, The Balm Desert bronzer, Benefit Bella Bamba blush, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow, Essence Lash Princess mascara), ustnice/lips (L.O.V LOVlicious Caring Volume gloss Forbidden Cassis).

Potovalna make-up torbica

travelCollage

Tokrat sem se odločila deliti z vami kaj nesem s seboj, ko grem na dopust. Načeloma vedno poskušam spakirati čim manj stvari in čeprav sem prej ponavadi nesla kar vse s sabo, pa sem sedaj res pridna, saj nesem le “nujne” stvari. Kljub temu nekaj opcij potrebujem, zato moja kozmetična torbica v nobenem primeru ni prazna.

This time I decided to share with you what I take with me, when I go on vacation. In principal I always try to pack as little as I can and although I used to take everything, I’m really good now, because I take only “necessary” things. Nevertheless I do still need some options, so my cosmetics bag is in no way empty.

travel1Collage

Naj začnem pri bazi. S seboj nesem dve bazi, eno za obraz in eno za oči. Za obraz poleti največkrat uporabljam The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser in pa Essence I ❤ Stage baza za oči. Naslednji je tekoči puder. Ker sem popolnoma navdušena nad Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer tekočim pudrom (ocena tukaj), gre absolutno z mano, ampak z mano potuje tudi Burjois Serum foundation, za dneve, ko ne želim polno prekrivnega pudra. Catrice Camoflauge concealer je zadnje čase edini korektor katerega uporabljam, zato gre tudi ta z mano. Tekoči puder in korektor vedno fiksiram in v ta namen vzamem Maybelline Shine Free loose powder ter MAC blotting powder.

Let’s start with the base. I take two with me, one for the face and one for the eyes. In the summer I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and the Essence I ❤ Stage eyeshadow base. Next is liquid foundation. Since I’m totally impressed with the Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer (review here), I absolutely take it with me, but I take Burjois Serum foundation as well, for days when I don’t want a full coverage foundation. Catrice Camouflage concealer is the only concealer I’ve been using lately, so this one is also coming with. I always set my foundation and concealer and I take Maybelline Shine Free loose powder and MAC blotting powder for that.

travel2Collage

Barve vsekakor ne morejo manjkati in zato bom začela kar s paleto za oči. Paleto senčil izberem glede na to, koliko opcij želim imeti. Največkrat potuje z mano Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (ocena tukaj), saj mi nudi veliko opcij, ki so vedno dobrodošle. Za obraz bom prav tako vzela Zoevino paleto Coral (ocena tukaj) iz istega razloga, saj imam več opcij. Osvetljevalec je nujno potreben in tokrat sem se odločila za The Balm Manizer sisters paleto (ocena tukaj). Edini bronzer katerega trenutno uporabljam in ga pod nobenim pogojem ne bi pustila doma je Urban Decay Beached bronzer (ocena tukaj). 🙂

Colors definitely can’t be missing and because of that I’ll start with the eyeshadow palette. I choose an eyeshadow palette depending on how many options I like to have. Most of the time I take the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (review here), because it offers a lot of options, that are always welcome. For the face I’ll take Zoeva Coral blush palette (review here) for the same reason, more options. Highlighter is extremely necessary and this time I decided for The Balm Manizer sisters palette (review here). The only bronzer I’m using at this time and wouldn’t leave it at home under any circumstances is Urban Decay Beached bronzer (review here).

IMG_7878

Na koncu ne smem nikakor pozabiti še na maskaro, ki je v tem primeru MAC Haute & Naughty lash (ocena tukaj) in barvico za obrvi NYX ter Essence gel za obrvi Make me brow, brez katerega ne morem živeti. Za ustnice ponavadi vzamem kakšno mat obstojno šminko, barvico za ustnice, glos in še kakšno šminko. Tokrat gredo z mano NYX Soft matte lip cream v barvi Morroco, Essence Longlasting barvici za ustnice v barvi 04 Peach Beauty in 05 Lovely Frappuccino (ocena tukaj), Khroma Beauty lip glosa v barvah Raw Honey in Wildflower Honey (ocena tukaj), ter Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick v odtenku Amalfi, Essence šminka (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing in H&M šminka 023 Powder Puff (ocena kmalu).

In the end I can’t forget the mascara, which is in this case MAC Haute & Naughty lash (review here) and an eyebrow pencil from NYX as well as the Essence eyebrow gel Make me brow, that I can’t live without. For the lips I usually take a matte long wearing lipstick, lip liner, gloss and some lipstick. This time I’ll be taking NYX Soft matte lip cream in Morroco, Essence Longlasting lipliners in the shade 04 Peach Beauty and 05 Lovely Frappuccino (review here), Khroma Beauty lip gloss in the colors Raw Honey and Wildflower Honey (review here) as well as Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Amalfi, Essence lipstick (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing and H&M lipstick 023 Powder Puff (review soon).

IMG_7881

Seveda ne smemo pozabiti še na čopiče in pa Beauty Blender. Pri čopičih nisem izbirčna, saj jih nimam tako veliko in vedno vzamem vse s seboj. To je vse kar bom tokrat nesla s seboj na dopust. V komentarju spodaj pa mi napišite brez česa vi ne morete na dopust?

Of course I can’t forget my brushes and my Beauty Blender. I’m not picky with the brushes, because I don’t have that many so I always take them all with me. This is what I’ll be taking on vacation this time. What items do you take while vacationing? Leave me a comment.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Moj vsakodnevni make-up

Od samega začetka sem imela plan, da se bom naličila, poslikala in objavila kaj sem uporabila za določen izgled. Največ težav so mi delale fotografije, saj nikoli nisem uspela dobro poslikati oči, da bi se barve lepo videle. Tokrat sem vsaj delno uspela in zato sem se tudi odločila, da bom ta vsakodnevni “look” tudi objavila. Obljubim, da se bom v bodoče potrudila, da bodo slike še boljše. 😉 Pa začnimo.

From the very beginning I had a plan, to put on make-up, take a picture and post what I used to achieve that look. The biggest problem were the photographs, because I could never photograph the eyes good enough, to show all the colors. This time I was at least partially successful so I decided to post this everyday make-up look. I promise I will try to make even better pictures in the future. 🙂 Let’s start.

IMG_6881

Na obraz sem najprej nanesla H&M bazo za mat kožo, ki sem jo prvič poskusila, tako da ocena še sledi. Bazo sem nanesla na čelo, okoli nosu in na brado oziroma na T-predel, saj se mi tam tudi najhitreje zmasti. Potem sem nanesla tekoči puder in sicer Bourjois Healthy Mix v odtenku Vanilla 52. Sledil je korektor, H&M concealer v odtenku Ivory, ki sem ga nanesla pod očmi, na brado, okoli nosu in malenkost na sredino čela. Korektor sem fiksirala z Maybelline Dream Matte pudrom v kamnu, katerega mi je skoraj že zmanjkalo. 🙂 Preostanek obraza sem fiksirala z Maybelline Shine Free Loose pudrom, ki se je tudi znašel na lestvici najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj).

First I applied the H&M mattifying primer on my face and this is the first time I used it so the review is yet to come. I applied the primer on my forehead, around my nose and on my chin, on the T-zone, because I get greasy the fastest there. Then I applied my foundation, the Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade Vanilla 52. Next was the H&M concealer in the shade Ivory, which I applied under my eyes, on my chin, around my nose and a bit on the center of my forehead. I set the concealer with the Maybelline Dream Matte powder, that I’m almost out of. 🙂 I set the rest of my face with the Maybelline Shine Free Loose powder, that’s also in my top favorite products in 2015 (you can find the list here).

IMG_6927

Potem sem začela z očmi. Najprej sem nanesla bazo, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, katero sem razmazala po celi veki. Za tale nežni izgled sem uporabila Zoevino Warm Spectrum paleto, ocena katere še sledi. Z rdečimi krogi so označena senčila, katera sem uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red, kako sem jih nanašala.

Then I started with my eyes. First I applied the base, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, which I smudged all over the lid. I used the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette for this soft look, review of which is yet to come. The red circles mark the eyeshadows that I used, the numbers indicate the order of how I applied them.

paleta2

Čez bazo sem nanesla prvo senčilo po celi veki, da sem veko pripravila na nanos barvnih senčil. Najprej sem kot prehodno barvo uporabila drugo senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla nad in v gubo veke. Barvo sem nanesla parkrat, da sem jo lepo razmazala vse od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. Potem sem vzela oranžno senčilo, tretje po vrsti, in ga nanesla samo v gubo veke. To sem ponavljala, dokler mi intenzivnost in izgled nista bila všeč. Nato je sledilo četrto senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla čez veko, od trepalnic do pregiba. Ker se mi ni zdelo dovolj pigmentirano, sem se odločila čopič navlažiti in tako nanesti senčilo na veko. Na koncu sem vzela še enkrat širši čopič s katerim sem nanesla prehodno barvo in brez senčila šla čez gubo veke in višje, da sem barve med seboj lepo povezala. Na koncu sem pod obrvmi nanesla še svetlo mat, peto, senčilo. V notranjih kotičkih očes sem nanesla še svetlo senčilo s sijajem. Na spodnji veki sem takoj pod trepalnicami nanesla čokoladno rjavo, sedmo, senčilo in ga skupaj z osmim senčilom razmazala do želene intenzitete. Nato je sledila maskara, uredila sem obrvi in oči so bile končane.

I applied the first eyeshadow over the base, over the whole lid, and this way I prepared my eyelid for the application of colorful eyeshadows. I applied the second eyeshadow as the transition color, above the crease and in the crease. I applied the color a few times, until it was evenly blended from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. Then I took the orange eyeshadow, third in a row, and applied it only to my crease. I repeated this step until I was happy with the intensity and the appearance. The fourth eyeshadow was the next step, which I applied on my lid, from the lash line to the crease. Since it did not seem pigmented enough I decided to wet my brush and apply the eyeshadow that way. Finally I took my blending brush that was used to apply my transition shade and I blended the colors in the crease and higher again, without any additional eyeshadow. In the end I applied the light matte, fifth, eyeshadow, under my eyebrows. In the inner corners of my eyes I decided to apply the light eyeshadow with the shimmer. On my lower lid, just below the eyelashes, I applied the chocolate brown, seventh, eyeshadow and smudged it with the eight eyeshadow to the desired intensity. I applied mascara, did my eyebrows and the eyes were finished.

IMG_6882 (2)

IMG_6923

Na koncu sem se spet vrnila na obraz, kamor sem nanesla bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, s katerim sem obraz rahlo konturirala. Za rdečilo sem uporabila Spectrum Coral paleto od Zoeve, kjer sem uporabila najsvetlejšo barvo. Za konec pa sem še nanesla osvetljevalec in sicer The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, katerega sem nanesla na vrh ličnic. Na ustnice sem nanesla Bobbi Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, in to je bilo to.

In the end I returned to my face again, where I applied some bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, that I used to slightly contour my face. For the blush I used the Spectrum Coral palette from Zoeva, where I used the lightest color. Finally I applied the highlighter, The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, which I applied on the top of my cheeks. I used Bobby Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, and that was it.

IMG_6890

Če nimate Zoeva Warm Spectrum palete potem ne skrbite, saj so katera koli senčila v podobnih barvah enako dobra. Uporabite izdelke, ki jih imate, in verjamem da vam bo uspelo ustvariti lep, vsakodnevni izgled. Če vam je ta objava všeč in si želite še več takšnih mi pustite komentar spodaj ali objavo všečkajte.

If you don’t have the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette, don’t worry, any other eyeshadows in similar colors will be good as well. Use the products that you have and I believe that you will be able to create a nice, everyday, look. If you liked this post and you wish to see more of such, please leave me a comment or like the post.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

 

Moji najljubši izdelki leta 2015 #2

Tukaj je še druga skupina izdelkov, ki so bili moji najljubši v letu 2015. V tej skupini boste našli ličila in izdelke, katere potrebujemo za ličenje. Prva skupina mojih najljubših izdelkov se nahaja tukaj. Pa začnimo! 😉

Here is the second group of products that were my favorites in the year 2015. This group will include make-up and products we need to apply it. You can find the first group of my favorite products here. Let’s start! 😉IMG_6199

1. BEAUTY BLENDER

Leta in leta sem bila privrženka nanosa tekočega pudra s čopiči, dokler se nisem končno odločila poskusit s to gobico. Kupila sem jo lani januarja in od takrat uporabljam čopič za nanos samo ko potujem, ker gobica oziroma »jajčka« se mora prej posušiti preden jo lahko pospravim. Ne bom razlagala kako se uporabi, rekla bom samo to: Potrebujete jo. 🙂 Jaz sem v enem letu kupila 2, kar pomeni, da mi ena, ob pravilni uporabi, čiščenju, zdrži pol leta, mogoče tudi več.

indexFor years I was a fan of applying foundation with brushes untill I finally decided to try out this sponge. I bought it in January last year and since then I use a brush to apply foundation only when I’m traveling, because the sponge needs to dry before I can pack it. I won’t explain how to use it but I will say this: You need it. 🙂 I bought 2 in a year, which means that one, when properly used and cleaned, will last mi 6 months, maybe even more.

2. ZOEVA 317 ČOPIČ ZA ČRTALO / 317 WING LINER

Ker so Zoeva čopiči moji najljubši čopiči, je edino prav, da vsaj enega omenim. Dolgo sem razmišljala kateri je moj najljubši in končno sem se odločila, da je to čopič za črtalo št. 317. Ker je čopič tanek in odrezan pod večjim kotom, kot so čopiči za črtalo ponavadi, je lažje narediti »wing liner«. Jaz uporabljam ta čopič tako za gel liner kot tudi za delanje črte s senčilom. Zame je ta čopič res top.

IMG_6182

Since Zoeva brushes are my favorite brushes it’s only right that I mention al least one. I thought long and hard about which brush is my favorite and I finally decided that it’s the 317 liner brush. Since the bristles are thin and cut in a greater angle than liner brushes usually are, it’s easier to do a winged liner. I use this brush for gel liner as for creating a line with eyeshadow. For me this brush is the bomb.

3. ESSENCE GEL MASCARA MAKE ME BROW EYEBROW

Moje obrvi ne zahtevajo preveč dela, ampak malo jih moram vseeno uredit in ta izdelek je ravno pravšnji. Obarvan gel vsebuje drobna vlakna, ki zapolnijo obrvi, gel pa jih utrdi da le-te ostanejo na mestu. Gel nanašam v nasprotni smeri rasti obrvi, da se vlakna boljše oprimejo obrvi, nato pa še v smeri rasti, da jih počešem. Na voljo sta 2 barvi, jaz uporabljam temnejšo rjavo in mi popolnoma ustreza. Gel uporabljam vsak dan, ko nosim ličila in je zame top izdelek za urejanje obrvi.

IMG_6163

My eyebrows do not require too much work but I still need to groom them a bit and this product is just right for that. The colored gel containes tiny fibers that fill the eyebrows, the gel itself makes them stay in place. I apply the gel in the opposite direction of the growth so the fibers in the gel stick to the eyebrows and then in the direction of the growth to comb them. There are 2 colors to schoose from and I use the darker one which fits me perfectly. I use the gel every time I wear make-up and for me this is a top product for my brows.

4. CATRICE LUMINIZING OSVETLJEVALEC / LUMINIZING HIGHLIGHTER (LUMINATION LIMITED EDITION)

Čeprav je ta izdelek iz omejene kolekcije ga enostavno moram omeniti, saj je par mesecev bil edini osvetljevalec, katerega sem uporabljala. Osvetljevalec je bež barve s temnejšim marmoriranjem in z nevtralnim podtonom. Ni pudrast, lepo se nanaša in super osvetli predele obraza. Ker je nevtralen ga lahko uporabim ne glede na to kakšen za make-up izgled sem se odločila. Čeprav sem ga uporabljala skoraj vsak dan par mesecev, se poraba komajda pozna. Catrice je izdal nov osvetljevalec, ki izgleda podobno, vendar ga še nisem uspela primerjat, da bi vam lahko povedala, če bo nadomestil tega.

IMG_6171

Although this item is from a limited edition collection I still have to mention it, because for a few months this was the only highlighter I used. The highlighter is beige with darker marbling and neutral undertones. It’s not powdery, it applies nicely and it highlights the face really well. Since it’s neutral I can use it with any kind of make-up look I decide. Although I used it almost every day for a few weeks I can barely see any usage. Catrice came out with a new highlighter that looks very similar, but I hadn’t had the chance to try it out to let you know if it’s going to replace this one.

5. MAYBELLINE SHINE FREE LOOSE POWDER

O tem pudru nisem slišala veliko. V oko mi je padel, ko ga je ena blogerka omenila v svojem videu. Odločila sem se da ga poskusim in še dobro, da sem ga. Puder je zelo fino mlet, dobro matira in je skoraj neviden na koži. Jaz ga uporabim vsakič, da fiksiram tekoči puder in da matiram obraz. Čeprav imam mastno T območje, mi ta puder pomaga, da ostanem mat vsaj par ur, preden potrebujem popravek. Tudi ko ga naknadno nanesem še vedno izgleda zelo naravno. Puder je obarvan, jaz ga imam v odtenku 01 light (svetlo).

IMG_6173

I didn’t hear much about this powder. I saw it when a beauty blogger mentioned it in a video. I decided to try it out and it’s a good thing I did. The powder is finely milled, mattifies good and is almost invisible on the skin. I use it everytime to set my fundation and to mattify my face. Although my T zone is greasy, this powder really helps me stay matte for at least few hours before I need to reapply. Even when I reapply it it still looks natural. The powder is colored and I have it in the color 01 light.

6. MAC – RDEČILO MARGIN / MARGIN BLUSH

MAC rdečila poznam in uporabljam že dolgo. Tega nisem. Na prvi pogled mogoče ne izgleda nič posebnega. Bež, rahlo bronasto rdečilo s toplimi podtoni. Ko pa sem začela malo raziskovati po spletu in sem videla kako dejansko izgleda na koži pa sem ga morala imeti. Barvo opisujejo kot breskvo z drobnimi zlatimi bleščicami in s frost finišem. Na licu bleščic ne zaznam, samo lep sijaj. Barva je primerna za poletno zagorelo kožo, kot tudi pozimi za »otoplitev« obraza. Jaz ga uporabljam za naravni izgled, torej ko imam na sebi le korektor, maskaro in Margin na licih. Jaz več ne potrebujem za vsakdan.

I’ve known and used MAC blushes for long. Not this one. At first sight it doesn’t look special. Beige, a bit bronzy with warm undertones. When I started exploring online and saw how it actually looks on the skin I knew I had to have it. They describe the color as a warm peach with gold shimmer and a frost finish. I can’t see the shimmer on the cheeks, just a nice shine. The color is suitable for skin with a summer tan as well as in the winter time to warm up the cheeks. I use it for a natural look, when I have only a corrector, mascara and Margin on the cheeks. I don’t need anything more for an everyday look.

7. NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM

Tudi ta izdelek ni nov pa kljub temu je bil pri meni to leto skoz v uporabi. Kupila sem 3 barve (Morocco, Prague in Stockholm ). Morroco je bila v uporabi skozi poletje, saj je lepa živo oranžna, Prague je bila v uporabi celo jesen, Stockholm pa kadarkoli sem želela bolj nevtralne ustnice. Šminka se lepo razmazuje, ne posuši se prehitro, tako da nanos ni otežen, ko se pa posuši se več ne prenaša ni pa odporna na hrano ali pijačo, tako da so popravki čez čas potrebni. Šminka ima mat finiš, ustnic mi ne izsuši in bledi enakomerno. Aplikator je gobica in je dovolj natančen, da jih lahko nanesem tudi brez barvice za ustnice. Jaz sem moje kupila na Ebayu, imajo jih tudi v Douglasu v Avstriji.

This product is not new as well but I used it the whole year. I bought 3 colors (Morocco, Prague and Stockholm ). I used Morocco the whole summer because it’s a bright orange color, Prague the whole autumn and Stockholm when I wanted a more nude lip. The lipstick spreads evenly, it doesn’t dry too fast, so the application is easy. When the lipstick dries it does not transfer but it’s not resistant to eating or drinking so I do need to reapply after a time. The lipstick has a matte finish, it doesn’t dry my lips out and it fades evenly. It has a doe foot applicator which is precise enough so I can apply the cream even without a lip pencil. I bought my on Ebay, but they have them in Douglas in Austria as well.

8. ESSIE FIFTH AVENUE

Essie lake poznam že dolgo. Po kvaliteti so kar visoko v mojih očeh, saj so obstojni in se po večini lepo nanašajo. Poleti sem iskala oranžno rdeči lak in punce na slovenskem forumu Planet Lepote so mi predlagale tega. Nisem potrebovala veliko prepričevanja in lak je šel z menoj. Od prvega trenutka, ko sem ga uporabila, je bila ljubezen na prvi pogled. Kadarkoli sem ga uporabila sem vedno dobila veliko komplimentov in večino poletja in jeseni je bil to edini lak, katerega sem uporabljala.

I’ve known about Essie nail polishes for a long time. They rank quite high by the quality in my eyes, because they resist chipping for a long time and they usually apply really nicely. I was looking for a orange red polish in the summer and the girls from the Slovenian forum Planet Lepote suggested this one. I did not need much persuasion and I took it home with me. It was love at first sight from the moment I tried it. Anytime I would use it I would get a lot of compliments and it was the only polish I used in the summer and autumn time.

9. URBAN DECAY NAKED 3

Paleto sem imela dolgo na listi želja, dokler mi je sestra ni uresničila in kupila januarja za rojstni dan. Paleta ni nova, tako da jo sigurno že dobro poznate, swatchev je ogromno na internetu, tako da jih jaz ne bom delala. Jaz jo uporabljam za vsakodnevni izgled, večerni izgled, v glavnem primerna je za vse situacije. Senčke so dobro pigmentirane, primerno mehke, se dobro nanašajo in razmazujejo oziroma »blendajo«. Paleto sem uporabljala večino časa v letu 2015 in zato je tudi pristala med mojimi najljubšimi izdelki.

I had this palette on my wish list for a long time, untill my sister bought it for me for my birthday in January. The palette is not new so you probably already heard about it and there is a bunch of swatches on the internet so I won’t be doing them. I use it for an everyday look, night time look, it’s generally suitable for any situations. The shadows are nicely pigmented, soft, they apply and blend easilly. I used this palette most of the time in 2015 and that’s also why it landed among my favorite products.

10. THE BALM DESERT BRONZER

Odkar so mi vzeli iz prodaje najljubši bronzer (Too Faced Peach Leopard bronzer) sem iskala nekaj vsaj približno podobnega. Takoj, ko sem ga zagledala sem vedela, da čeprav ni identičen nadomestek, je pa nekaj, kar lahko uporabljam kot bronzer ali tudi kot rdečilo in bronzer v enem. Bronzer je srednje temen, rozasto rjav s toplimi podtoni in sijajem. Barva se lepo prenaša na lice in se lahko z dodatnim nanosom še poglobi. Hitro je pristal na prvem mestu med mojimi bronzerji in mislim, da bo tam nekaj časa tudi ostal.

Since they discontinued my favorite bronzer (Too Faced Peach Leopard bronzer) I was looking for something similar. As soon as I saw this one I knew that although it’s not going to be an identical dupe it is something that I can use as a bronzer or even as a blush and bronzer in one. The bronzer in medium dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a luminous finish. The color transfers nicely to the cheek and can be deepened with a heavier application. It quickly landed in first place among my bronzers and I think that it will stay there for a while.
