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).

Benefit: Cheekathon

IMG_8001

Od Benefita imam že par izdelkov, tudi rdečila. Eno izmed mojih ljubših rdečil je prav od Benefita in sicer Bella Bamba, ki je vzeta iz prodaje, jaz pa sem že skoraj pri koncu. 😦 Prav tako imam Coralisto, ki pa mi je padla na tla in se razbila. Čeprav sem jo popravila, pa se vseeno drobi kar precej in jo nerada uporabljam. Kar se kvalitete tiče pa sta ti dve rdečili top, zato sem bila tudi tako navdušena nad to paleto.

I have a few products from Benefit, blushes also. One of my favorite blushes is from Benefit and it’s the Bella Bamba that was discontinued and I almost used it up. 😦 I also have Coralista, that fell on the floor and broke. Although I did fix it it still crumbles a lot so I don’t like using it. As far as the quality goes these two blushes are amazing and that’s why I was so excited about this palette.

Paleta vsebuje pet full size rdečil: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas in Coralisto. Embalaža je kartonasta, vendar zelo dobro izdelana. Paleta je rožnate barve z zlatimi flekci in izredno všečno slikico na prednji strani. Z notranje strani imam ogledalo dobre velikosti, plastično zaščito (ki sem jo takoj vrgla), majhno krtačko in 5 rdečil. Notri je bila prav tako majhna knjigica z navodili in triki. Paleta bi lahko bila rahlo ožja in tako bolj primerna za potovanja a se tudi s to znajdem.

The palette contains five full size blushes: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas and Coralista. The packaging is cardboard but very well made. The palette is pink with gold flecks and a really cute picture on the front. There’s a mirror on the inside that is a good size, a plastic cover (that I threw right away), small brush and 5 blushes. There was also a small book with tips and tricks. The palette could be a bit thinner so it would be better for traveling but I can work with this.

IMG_8009

Če preidem na sama rdečila. Dandelion in Hoola sta mat, Dallas in Coralista imata sijaj, Rockateur pa ima mikro bleščice. Rdečila so zelo kvalitetna, ravno prav mehka, dobro pigmentirana in se lepo nanašajo in zabrišejo. Mat rdečili sta rahlo bolj pudrasti a mene iskreno to ne moti. Čopič je OK, nič posebnega, sama ga uporabljam za konturiranje s Hoola bronzerjem in se dobro obnese.

Let me get to the blushes. Dandelion and Hoola are matte, Dallas and Coralista have a sheen, Rockateur has shimmer. The blushes are very good quality, soft enough, nicely pigmented and apply and blend easily. The matte blushes are a bit more powdery but I honestly don’t mind. The brush is OK, nothing special, I use it for contouring with the Hoola bronzer and it works well.

Dandelion je nežno rožnato rdečilo, ki po mojem mnenju paše na vsak ten. Hoola je kultni mat bronzer z neutralnim podtonom, tako da je super za konturiranje. Rockateur je prav tako nežno rožnato rdečilo z dodatkom slezenaste ter  z zlatimi mikro bleščicami, ki dajo licu lep sijaj. Dallas je rožnato rjavo rdečilo s toplim podtonom, tako da je super za punce s temnejšim tenom oziroma če ga nanesemo previdno je lahko lepo nevtralno rdečilo. Zadnje je Coralista, ki je najbolj znano rdečilo od Benefita in tudi najbolj univerzalno po mojem mnenju, saj je čudovita barva breskve z lepim sijajem.

Dandelion is a soft rose blush that in my opinion work on everyone. Hoola is a cult matte bronzer with neutral undertones so it’s great for contouring. Rockateur is also a soft rose blush with a hint of mauve and gold shimmer that gives the cheeks a nice shine. Dallas is a pinkish brown blush with warm undertones so it’s great for girls with a darker skin tone or if you use a light hand it’s a great neutral blush. The last is Coralista that’s also the most famous blush from Benefit and also the most universal in my opinion because it’s a gorgeous peach with a nice shine.

IMG_8089

Če pogledam na paleto kot na celoto, bi lahko rekla, če ne bi bila obsedena z ličili, da je to edina paleta za obraz, ki jo potrebujem. A bodimo realni, verjetno bom kaj hitro našla nekaj kar bom spet nujno potrebovala. 😀 Kljub temu sem s paleto izredno zadovoljna. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in za njo odštela 60€, kar je super, saj je drugače eno posamezno rdečilo od Benefita okoli 33€. Paleta se še dobi v Sephori in na določenih spletnih straneh, tako da če vas zanima potem pohitite, saj ne bo dolgo v prodaji. Za več slik in swatchev pa klik tukaj.

If I look at the palette as a whole I could say, if I wasn’t obsessed with make-up, that this is the only face palette I need. But let’s be real I’ll probably find something soon that I’ll need. 😀 Nevertheless, I’m extremely satisfied with the palette. I bought it in Sephora in Italy and paid 60€ which is great because otherwise a single blush from Benefit goes for around 33€. You can still get the palette in Sephora and on certain websites so if you’re interested hurry up because it is a limited edition item. For more pictures and swatches click here.

Enobarven rožnat make-up

IMG_7133

Tokrat sem se odločila ustvariti enobarven make-up izgled v rožnati barvi. To pomeni da sem rožnato uporabila na očeh, licih in ustnicah. Na koncu sem bila izredno zadovoljna z izgledom. 😉

This time I decided to create a monochromatic make-up look in rose/pink color. This means that I used rose/pink on my eyes, cheeks and lips. In the end I was really satisfied with the look. 😉

IMG_7116

Za oči sem uporabila paleto, ki je pristala tudi na seznamu mojih najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj), Urban Decay Naked 3 paleto. Tako kot prejšnjič sem obkrožila senčila, ki sem jih uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red po katerem sem jih nanašala. Preden sem začela s senčili sem uporabila bazo za oči. Prav tako sem ob očesu nalepila lepilni trak, da sem dobila ostro in ravno linijo. Za lažjo predstavo prilagam sliko.

For my eyes I used a palette that was on my most favorite products in 2015 list (you can find it here), Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I circled the eyeshadows I used, the numbers indicate the order in which I applied them. Before I started with the shadows I used an eye base. I also applied some scotch tape next to my eye to get a sharp and straight line. I’m adding a picture for better understanding.

Potem sem začela s prvo, prehodno barvo, ki sem jo nanesla v in nad gubo očesa, od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. To sem ponovila dvakrat oziroma dokler barva ni bilo lepo razporejena. Nato sem nanesla drugo barvo samo v gubo veke, da sem le-to malo poglobila. To sem prav tako ponavljala, dokler mi ni bil izgled všeč. Sledilo je tretje, najtemnejše senčilo, ki sem ga s ploščatim čopičem nanesla v zunanji trikotnik in potem s čopičem za blendanje vse skupaj razmazala (pazila sem, da nisem šla nad gubo veke). To sem ponavljala do željene intenzitete.

Then I started with the first, transition color, that I applied in and above my crease, from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. I repeated this twice or until the eyeshadow was nicely blended. Then came the second shadow just in the eye crease, to deepen it. I also repeated this until I liked how it looked. This was followed by the third, the deepest, eyeshadow which I applied on my outer triangle and blended with a blending brush (I was careful not to go above the crease). I repeated until the desired intensity.

rsz_img_7100x

Sledilo je četrto senčilo, ki pa ima goste bleščice in se suho ne nanese lepo, zato to senčilo vedno uporabim mokro. Tako je intenzivnost večja in senčilo se lepše oprime veke. To nanesem na celo veko, ne da bi šla nad gubo veke. Ker sem želela sredino veke še bolj osvetlili sem na sredino s prstom potapkala malo zlatega senčila. Ta korak lahko načeloma tudi preskočite. 🙂 Na koncu sem še nanesla svetlo mat senčilo pod obrvjo. Odstranim lepilni trak.

Next was the fourth eyeshadow that has a lot of glitter and it doesn’t apply nicely dry, so I always use this one wet. The intensity is greater and the shadow sticks to the eyelid better this way. I apply it to the whole lid, but not above the crease. Because I wanted to illuminate the center of the eyelid even more I patted some gold shadow in the center using my finger. This step may in principle be skipped. 🙂 In the end I applied the light matte shadow under the brow bone. I remove the tape.

PicMonkey Collage4

Ker sta bili dve senčili z bleščicami sem predel pod očmi pobrisala s kozmetičnim robcem, da sem odstranila bleščice, ki so padle na obraz. Nato sem nadaljevala s tekočim pudrom, korektorjem, pudrom v prahu. Nato sem nanesla še bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer in rdečilo, ki je bilo v tem primeru tudi rožnato in sicer Benefit Bella Bamba. Za osvetlitev obraza sem uporabila The Balm The Manizer Sisters paleto, ki sem jo ocenila tukaj. Uredila sem še obrvi kot ponavadi.

Because two of the eyeshadows had glitter, I used a cosmetics wipe to clean the glitter fallout off my face. Then I continued with the foundation, concealer, loose powder. I applied the bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer and the blush, which in this case was also pink, namely Benefit Bella Bamba. To highlight my face I used The Balm The Manizer Sisters palette, that I reviewed here. I did my eyebrows as usual.

IMG_7092

Nato sem se vrnila na oči in na spodnjo veko nanesla sedmo senčilo, v notrnji kotiček spodnje veke pa malo zadnjega, osmega senčila. Nanesla sem seveda še maskaro oziroma Stila duo, ki sem ga ocenila tukaj. Na ustnice sem nanesla Essence longlasting lipliner v odtenku Sweetheart, ki je res odlična barvica za ustnice. Tudi to sem ocenila in oceno najdete tukaj.

I then returned to my eyes and applied the seventh shadow to my lower lid, in the inner corner I put a bit of the eighth eyeshadow. Of course I also applied some mascara, I used the Stila duo, that I reviewed here. On my lips I applied the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade Sweetheart, which is really a great lipliner. I also reviewed this one and you can find the review here.

In to je moj enobarven make-up izgled. Kako se vam zdi? Vam je všeč? 🙂

And this is my monochromatic make-up look. What do you think? Do you like it? 🙂

Zoeva: Coral Spectrum

IMG_6997

Že nekaj časa nazaj sem napisala, da se veselim Spectrum kolekcije in februarja sem jo tudi končno dobila. Odločila sem se za paleto rdečil in sicer Coral Spectrum, saj imam rada rdečila v takih odtenkih.

Some time ago I wrote that I was looking forward to the Spectrum collection and in February I finally got it. I decided for the blush palette, the Coral Spectrum, because I love coral blushes.

Paleta je črna mat, na otip zelo podobna NARS embalaži, vendar kartonasta z bronastim (holografskim) napisom, v rokavu, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. Paleta je zelo dobro narejena in trpežna. V paleti ni ogledala, le 4 x 3,8g produkta.

The palette is matte black, it feels very similar to NARS packaging but made out of cardboard with copper (holographic) inscription, in a sleeve, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. The palette is very well made and durable. There is no mirror in the palette, only 4 x 3,8g of product.

IMG_6849

V paleti so tri mat rdečila in eno satenasto. Rdečila so zelo dobro pigmentirana, tako da priporočam lahko roko pri nanosu. Zelo lepo se razmažejo, blendajo, in niso pudrasta.

The palette includes three matte blushes and one satin. The blushes are very nicely pigmented so I recommend a light hand with the application. They blend really easily and are not powdery.

Barve so zelo različne med seboj. Imamo eno zelo svetlo mat rdečilo, katero trenutno največ uporabljam. Čeprav mogoče na sliki ne izgleda nič ekstra, ampak je super, ker naravno poudari lica. Potem imamo dve rožnati rdečili, ki sta tudi mat, s toplim podtonom. Na koncu pa še edino satenasto, ki je zame pravo koralno rdečilo, rožnato s pridihom breskve in lepim sijajem. Rdečila se mi zdijo primerna za vse in zame je ta paleta edina, ki jo nesem s seboj, ko kam potujem.

The colors are very different from each other. We have one very light matte blush, that I use the most at the time. Although it may not look much on the pictures it’s really great, because it naturally emphasizes the cheeks. Then we have two pink blushes, that are also matte with a warm undertone. In the end we have the only satin blush, for me a true coral blush, pink with a hint of peach and a gorgeous shine. The blushes to me seem appropriate for everyone and for me this is the only palette I take with me when I travel.

IMG_7006

Za paleto sem odštela 18€, kupila sem jo v Douglasu v Avstriji in jo priporočam vsem, saj je res odlična paleta. Za še več slik in swatchev kliknite tukaj.

I paid 18€ for the palette I bought in Douglas in Austria and I recommend it to everyone, because it’s a really great palette. For more pictures and swatches click here.

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.

IMG_6674

Light box

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. 🙂

IMG_6695

Naravna svetloba / Natural light

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.

IMG_6839

Naravna svetloba / Natural light

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.

IMG_6698

Light Box z bliskavico / Light box with flash

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.

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.
