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.

IMG_8196

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).

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! 😉

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.

springmu3Collage

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.

springmuCollage

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.

springmu2Collage

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.

H&M: Cover Up Concealer

HM2 Collage

Vedno sem na preži, za novim korektorjem, saj imam temne podočnjake. Par blogerk je tale korektor opisalo kot dober, učinkovit, in morala sem ga poskusiti. H&M prodaja kozmetiko v Sloveniji le v Ljubljani v City Parku in tam sem ga tudi kupila.

I’m always on the lookout for a new concealer, because I have dark under eye circles. A few bloggers reviewed this concealer as good, effective, and I had to try it. H&M sells beauty products in Slovenia only in Ljubljana in City Park and that’s where I bought it.

Korektor je v tipični embalaži z gobico za aplikator. Ta embalaža mi je še najbolj všeč za korektorje. Vonja nima, barva je Ivory, ki je odtenek svetlejša od moje polti, saj korektor uporabljam za osvetlitev obraza in predela pod očmi.

The concealer is in a typical packaging with a doe foot applicator. I prefer this kind of packaging for concealers. It has no scent, the color is Ivory, which is a shade lighter than my complexion, because I use the concealer to highlight the face and my under eye area.

IMG_6650

Korektor je precej kremast in se zato tudi lepo razmaže. Jaz ga nanesem z aplikatorjem direktno na obraz, nato pa ga z Beauty Blenderjem razmažem. Korektor se dobro obnese na obrazu, saj nimam globokih gub. Druga zgodba pa je pod očmi, saj se nabere v gubice in po dobri uri mi več ni všeč kako izgleda. Prekrije precej dobro, ampak mojih izredno temnih podočnjakov skoraj noben korektor ne prekrije popolnoma, tako da to ni merilo. Jaz ga vedno fiksiram s pudrom v prahu in/ali v kamnu.

The concealer is pretty creamy and because of that it blends easily. I apply it with the applicator directly to the face, then I use a Beauty Blender to blend it out. The concealer works well on the face, because I don’t have deep wrinkles. Under the eyes is a different story, because it creases into the fine lines and after an hour I no longer like the look of it. It covers pretty good, but I have very dark under eye circles that rarely any concealer covers completely, so that’s not a criterion. I always set it with a loose and/or pressed powder.

Ker je kremast, mogoče ne bo najboljši za punce z mastno kožo, prav tako ne za tiste, ki imate globoke izrazne gube ali gubice pod očmi, saj se nabira vanje. Korektor je torej dober, ampak ni pa odličen, kot moj MAC ProLongwear concealer. Zanj boste odšteli 5,99€. Priporočam ga, če niste zahtevne uporabnice. 😉

Since it’s creamy it may not be the best for women with oily skin or women with deep expression lines or fine lines under the eyes, because it does crease. The concealer is therefore good, but not great, as my MAC ProLongwear concealer. You will pay 5,99€ for it. I do recommend it, if you’re not a demanding user. 😉

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

P.s.: Trenutno ga ne najdem na spletni strani, tako da je mogoče šel iz prodaje ali ni na zalogi.

P.s.: I can’t currently find it on the website, so it’s possible that it’s discontinued or out of stock.

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.

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.

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).

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.
