Valentine's Makeup Menu

2/14/2016



Although I'm not much of a Valentine's Day fan, I do like to take the opportunity to play with my makeup during certain holidays - and Valentine's Day as well as New Year's Eve (and my birthday!) are three favorite occasions of mine when I like to do something special for myself.

When it comes to Valentine's Day, I favor relaxed waves in my hair, something cozy and soft to throw on and soft, feminine pink makeup. I usually spend this day with my husband and we make it special with a few drinks and delicious desserts - these two past years we're practicing a healthier version of dessert so I'll probably whip up protein pancakes/ muffings or jazz up my energy bites recipe. But it's him when it comes to preparing a nice, hearty dinner - I'm already excited to see what he'll prep and a movie night is a must!

As for makeup, I've opted for a very feminine, soft makeup featuring a clean, lightly illuminated canvas. Rosy cheeks are attributed to Stila's creamy blush which I love and is my fave creamy blush of all. Illuminator is also creamy as I wanted skin to look touchable. Sculpting was held on minimum, just for a hint of those defined cheekbones carved by my HG Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder. I've played up my eyes with a duochrome pinky/gold shade from my new Morphe Brushes palette - you can expect a review droppin' soon for it and for the ABH Dipbrow Pomade (I think I chose a great color).

Inglot eyeliner is gorgeous and I've really enjoyed using it so far - a longer flick is something I'm diggin' at the moment. I've decided to amp up my lashes ever so slightly and Ardell Natural lashes are perfect for that (and they're super light on the eyes). Lips were kept pretty in pink thanks to one of my trusty Essence lipliners - matte yet soft, beautiful and almost kiss-proof. You will find all the used products listed below, most are reviewed and clicking on them will lead you to their reviews.

I hope you like and take inspiration from this subtle and romantic rosy makeup. I wish you a lovely Valentine's Day whichever way and regardless with who you decide to spend it with.

  • Iako nisam neka velika ljubiteljica Valentinova, ipak volim iskoristiti priliku da se poigram sa sminkom po dolasku odredjenih praznika - Valentinovo, Novogodisnja noc kao i moj rodjendan su mi omiljeni povodi da se pocastim lijepom sminkom i na taj nacin da uradim nesto lijepo za sebe.
  • Kada je Valentinovo u pitanju, preferiram opustene valove u kosi, obucem nesto mekano i udobno te se obicno odlucujem za mekan i zenstven makeup u ruzicastim tonovima. Ovaj dan obicno provodim sa svojim suprugom a ucinimo ga posebnim tako sto se preko dana pocastimo picem i dezertom - posljednje dvije godine smo vjerni zdravijim varijantama dezerta tako da cu najvjerovatnije da nam pripremim proteinske palacinke/ mafine ili da napravim posebno izdanje svojih energetskih bombica. Vecera je pak muzeva teritorija i vec joj se radujem posto me jako zanima sto ce nam pripremiti a filmska noc je obavezna!
  • Sto se tice sminke, ove godine sam se odlucila za cist, jednostavan look gdje dominira ujednacen i njezno osvijetljen ten. Ruzicaste obraze volim i u tu svrhu sam se posluzila Stila kremastim rumenilom koje je ujedno i moj favorit u kremastoj kategoriji. Iluminator je takodjer kremaste teksture posto sam zeljela da koza djeluje meko. Konturisanje je ostavljeno na minimumu, samo za njezno naglasene jagodice uz pomoc mog omiljenog Kevyn Aucoing The Sculpting pudera. Oci sam naglasila duokromnom ruzicasto/zlatnom sjenom iz Morphe Brushes palete - mozete ocekivati njenu recenziju uskoro. Takodjer vas jako brzo ocekuje i recenzija ABH Dipbrow pomade za obrve (mislim da sam odabrala odlicnu nijansu). 
  • Inglot eyeliner je odlican i bas uzivam u njegovom koristenju otkako sam ga kupila - nesto duzi i uzi potez tusem uz trepavice mi trenutno pase. Trepavice sam suptilno naglasila uz pomoc Ardell Natural modela sa kojim naprosto nema greske (k tome su i jako lagane na ocima, veoma ugodne za nositi). Usne su u nezaobilaznoj ruzicastoj boji. Koristila sam jednu od svojih provjereno dobrih Essence olovaka za usne - mat ali i mekane, skoro da su otporne i na poljupce. Sve koristene proizvode cete pronaci u sklopu spiska ispod i vecina ih je vec recenzirana.
  • Nadam se da vam se dopada i da cete moci izvuci inspiraciju iz ovog suptilnog i romanticnog makeupa. Zelim vam divan dan i lijepo Valentinovo bez obzira na koji nacin i u kojem drustvu ga odlucite provesti.

    1. Pa nije los! Klasicna silikonska baza, nije previse "skliska", lijepo zagladi kozu, malo popuni pore, nije ljepljiva, prirodnog finisha ali ne bih rekla da bi pomogla posebno masnoj ili posebno suhoj kozi. Produzi trajanje sminke za cca 2h na mojoj mjesovitoj i dehidriranoj kozi. Nadam se da sam pomogla :)
