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).

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.

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.

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.

Essence: Shape your face contouring palette

IMG_6673

Tale paleta za konturing je izgledala privlačno v trgovini in ker me je Essence že parkrat pozitivno presenetil in nimam še take palete, sem se odločila, da jo bom poskusila. Na voljo sta v dveh različicah, jaz sem vzela 10 ready, set, peach!, ki je bolj topla različica.

This contouring palette looked really attractive in the store and because Essence did positively surprise me a couple of times and I don’t have a palette like this, I decided to try it out. You can get it in two versions and I took 10 ready, set, peach!, which is the warmer version.

Paleta je v prozorni plastični embalaži, kot večina njihovih izdelkov. Nič posebnega, ampak opravi svoje delo. Najprej imamo mat bronzer, potem je na vrsti mat osvetljevalec in na koncu rdečilo, ki ima drobne bleščice. Najbolj me je zmotilo to, da v Mullerju niso imeli testerja, tako da barv nisem mogla preizkusiti tam, ampak sem jih komaj doma. Bronzer je zelo trd. Barva se s težavo prenese na prst, s čopičem gre malo lažje. Bronzer je malenkost bolj topel, kot bi bilo primerno za senčenje obraza, ampak meni to odgovarja. Z bronzerjem grem čez določeno mesto večkrat, saj ni zelo pigmentiran. Sam odtenek na meni izgleda dobro. V primeru, da ste začetnica in vas je strah, da ne bi preveč nanesle, potem je ta bronzer pravi za vas. 🙂

The palette is in a transparent plastic packaging, like the majority of their products. Nothing special, it does the job. First, we have a matte bronzer, then comes the matte highlighter and in the end, the blush with shimmer. What bothered me the most, was that Muller didn’t have any testers to swatch the colors, so I did that when I got home. The bronzer is very hard. It’s hard to pick up the color with the finger, it’s a bit easier with the brush. The bronzer is slightly warmer then it would be appropriate for contouring, but I like it. I go over one spot a few times with the bronzer, because it’s not that pigmented. The shade itself looks good on me. In case you are a beginner and you are afraid that you will apply too much, then this bronzer is the one for you. 🙂

Osvetljevalec mi sploh ni všeč, ker je mat. Sama imam rada če ima osvetljevalec sijaj. Prav tako je bolj mehak kot bronzer a hkrati zelo pudrast. Sama sem ga uporabljala za fiksiranje korektorja pod očmi, ampak niti za to se ni obnesel. Sama barva je dovolj svetla, da lepo osvetli predel pod očmi, ampak ne glede na to, kateri korektor sem uporabila, v roku pol ure, je bil ta v majhnih gubicah. To se mi nikoli ne dogaja z MAC-ovim Pro Longwear korektorjem, ki je pri meni številka ena. Zdaj pa se je. Zato sem osvetljevalec tudi nehala uporabljati.

I don’t like the highlighter at all, because it’s matte. I myself like highlighters with a sheen. Also it’s a lot softer then the bronzer but at the same time very powdery. I used it to set my concealer under my eyes, but it didn’t work for that either. The color itself is light enough, so it lightens the under eye area, but no matter which concealer I used, within half an hour, it creased and set in my fine lines. This never happens with my MAC Pro Longwear concealer, which is my number one. This time it did. That’s also why I stopped using the highlighter.

Rdečilo je v barvi breskve z drobnimi zlatimi bleščicami in čeprav mi je všeč in tudi sama tekstura je najboljša od vseh, pa ga skoraj nikoli ne uporabim, saj že po sami paleti redko posegam. Rdečilo se lepo nanaša, bleščice dajo lep zlat sijaj in niso preveč opazne na obazu, saj so res zelo drobne. Tudi pigmentirano je dovolj, da z enim nanosom dobimo pravo količino produkta na licih. Mogoče sem trenutno še preveč bleda za ta odtenek in bom več posegala po njemu poleti, ko bom malo bolj zagorela.

The blush is a peach color with gold shimmer and although I like it and the texture is the best of all, I rarely use it, because I don’t reach for the palette itself. The blush applies nicely, the shimmer gives a nice golden sheen and it’s not that visible on the face, because it’s really fine. One coat is enough to get the right amount of product on the cheeks, because the pigmentation is good. Maybe I’m currently too pale for this shade and I’ll use it more in the summer, when I get a tan.

Če pogledam na produkt kot celoto, potem moram priznati, da me ni navdušil. Ni zelo slab, kot tudi ne zelo dober. Za začetnice bi bronzer bil dober, saj ga lahko naknadno poglobimo. Osvetljevalec je v mojih očeh neuporaben, rdečilo pa je po kvaliteti zelo dobro. Paleto sem kupila v Mullerju in zanjo odštela okrog 4,50€. Sama je ne bi več kupila, saj imam veliko produktov, ki so boljši.

If I look at the product as a whole, then I have to admit that it didn’t impress me. It’s not very bad as it’s not very good. The bronzer would be good for beginners, because we can deepen it. The highlighter is in my eyes useless, the blush is very good. I bought the palette in Muller and paid around 4,50€. I wouldn’t repurchase, because I have a lot of products that are better.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

Zoeva En Taupe palette

image2Glede na to, da se že tako ali tako navdušujem nad Zoeva čopiči, sem se začela navduševati tudi nad ličili omenjene znamke. In čeprav sem do zdaj vedno iskala izgovore, zakaj določenega  izdelka ne  potrebujem, sem se v to paletko enostavno zaljubila na prvi pogled in decembra sem jo tudi končno dobila. Sama kupujem Zoeva izdelke v Douglasovi spletni trgovini in dam, da dostavijo v  njihovo trgovino, ki se nahaja v nakupovalnem središču v Seiersbergu (Avstrija), kjer  potem tudi  plačam naročeno.  Zame je ta metoda najbolj preprosta in praktična. Seveda pa imate možnost njihove izdelke  naročiti na Zoevini uradni spletni strani. Paleta je stala 17€.

Given the fact that I really like the Zoeva brushes I also started getting enthused about the make-up as well. Until now I have always looked for excuses, why I don’t need a certain product, but I fell in love with this product and got it in December. I buy the Zoeva products in the Douglas online store and I have them deliver in their store which is in the shopping center Seiersberg (Austria), where I pay for it as well. This method is simple and practical for me. Of course you also have the option to buy the products from the Zoeva official website. The palette cost 17€.

Tale paleta se  mi je zdela  primerna za  vsak dan, torej  za  dnevni make-up lahko pa pride v poštev tudi za večernega. Opremljena s to paleto sem šla tudi k sestri čez praznike in izkazala se je kot povsem dovolj, tako za dnevni, nežni, make-up izgled, kot tudi za intenzivnejšega večernega.

I find this palette suitable for everyday, for a daily make-up look, as well as for a night time look. Equipped with this palette I went to my sister over the holidays and it probed itself to be enough, as well for a daily, soft, make-up look, as well as for an intense night look.

Paleta sama je iz kartona, pakirana je v “rokavu”, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. V notranjosti je plastična folija, ki je namenjena zaščiti senčil. Paleta se dobro zapira in je trdna ter trpežna, tako da me ni strah, da bi se karkoli poškodovalo. Sumljivi so mi edino robovi, ki bi se znali čez čas malo poškodovati a za tako ugodno ceno jim to zlahka odpustim in me niti najmanj ne bi motilo.

The palette itself is made out of cardboard, packaged in a “sleeve”, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. There is a plastic foil that comes in the palette to protect the eyeshadows. The palette closes well and in sturdy and durable, so I’m not afraid that anything would damage. Only the edges of the palette could damage in the future, but for a price this low I easily forgive them this.

image8

Paleta ima 10 senčil in že samo ime pove, da so barve bolj sivkasto rjave s hladnimi podtoni. 4 barve so mat, 1 je mat z bleščicami, 2 sta duochrome in 3 so satenaste. Senčila so ustrezno mehka, solidno pigmentirana, lahko jih uporabljamo suhe ali mokre. Jaz včasih uporabim duochrome barvi mokri, ker je potem sam učinek večji.

The palette has 10 eyeshadows and the name itself says that the colors are grey-brown with cool undertones – taupey. 4 colors are matte, 1 is matte with shimmer, 2 are duochrome and 3 are satin. The eyeshadows are soft, nicely pigmented and we can use them dry or wet. I occasionally use the duochrome shadows wet so the effect is greater.

image9

Barve se lepo in prijetno nanašajo in preprosto se razmazujejo oziroma “blendajo”. Več slik swatchev lahko pogledate tukaj. 🙂

The eyeshadows apply nicely and they blend easily. For more pictures and swatches click here. 🙂

To je moja prva Zoeva paletka in sem popolnoma prepričana, da tudi ne zadnja. Z veseljem namreč že pričakujem novo Zoeva Spectrum kolekcijo in vem, da bo najmanj ena paletka šla z menoj.

This is my first Zoeva palette and I’m absolutely convinced it’s not the last. I’m already expecting the new Zoeva Spectrum collection and I now that at least one palette will come home with me.
