Weekly Foundation Rotation #2

8/04/2016



Downsizing my makeup stash really helped me 'find myself' in terms of finally pinpointing what I enjoy wearing and what looks as good as it feels. I bet that the initial makeup purge seemed a questionable move on my behalf but - this approach saves time as I don't feel rushed to choose among a huge pile of makeup in a short amount of time anymore (I'm always in a rush as I hate being late for anything). I now actually have envisioned at least five makeup looks which I do tend to switch-up frequently but the basics are there and it feels easier to build around them. One of my 'staple' makeup looks is a monochrome bronze-y one. And here comes the Weekly Foundation Rotation #2 into the picture: a gorgeous matte (but not chalky) base which allows me to create such a warm, monochrome canvas. 

Avon Nutra Effects BB Cream Matte SPF 15 was already reviewed at the blog (here) but in a lighter shade (Light). As summer progressed, my skin picked up a nice little tan so I found that the Medium shade suits my complexion perfectly now. This is a classic silicone-based BB cream which definitely blurs out the majority of skin's imperfections. It does offer a decent coverage for a BB cream and it evens the skin really well. What I love about it is the fact whilst having a matte finish, it doesn't look or feel drying on the skin. It doesn't make my face look crepe-y, dehydrated nor do my fine lines look exaggerated. 

At the same time, it allows to play with the base - you can mattify it even further or add some sunkissed glow. I always opt for the glow, it's just something which sits well with me and does wonders for my face. Brows and lashes are a constant in my looks - a natural approach but with some welcomed definition. I've sculpted the cheekbones lightly - would you believe if I said that this bronze-y look, in fact, doesn't include a bronzer at all? Yup, just a sculpting powder, a warm highlighter and a hazelnut-hued eyeshadow all over the eyelid and a little along the lash line. You've asked me for a list of used products so I'll list one below. Enjoy!

  • Smanjenje kozmeticke kolekcije mi je mnogo pomoglo da 'pronadjem sebe' u smislu kozmetickog identiteta - tacnije, napokon sam shvatila kakvu sminku najvise volim da nosim. Vrijeme je i bilo s obzirom koliko godina eksperimentisem i uopsteno koliko dugo koristim sminku. Vjerovatno je prva cistka kozmeticke kolekcije mozda djelovala kao impulsivan akt ali  - ovaj pristup mi je pomogao i vise ne panicarim dok pokusavam pronaci nesto u hrpi sminke, nadajuci se da necu (ponovo) zakasniti - a mrzim da kasnim bilo kome. Sada uvijek u glavi imam zamisljenih pet makeup look-ova koje cesto 'doradjujem' i mijenjam po potrebi ali osnova je tu i lako je oko nje izgraditi finese za svaku priliku. Jedan od 'mojih' makeup lookova na koje se cesto oslanjam je bronzana monohromatska varijanta. Weekly Foundation Rotation #2 u pricu ulazi sa jako lijepom mat bazom koja mi dopusta da napravim tonalni, topli look koji toliko volim.
  • Avon Nutra Effects BB Cream Matte SPF 15 je vec recenzirana na blogu (ovdje) ali sam tada bila fokusirana na svjetliju (Light) nijansu. Kako ljeto odmice, moja koza je potamnila i sada joj nijansa Medium savrseno odgovara. Ova BB krema je klasicni primjer BB kreme na silikonskoj bazi i ona definitivno zamaskira vecinu nesavrsenstava koze. Za jednu BB kremicu pruza pristojno prekrivanje i ten jako lijepo ujednaci. Ono sto volim kod ove BB kreme jeste sto, iako je mat finisha, koza ne djeluje i ne izgleda isuseno dok je nosim. Inace mi mat finish nekada kozu isusi, istakne sitne borice i fine linije - sa ovom kremicom to nije slucaj.
  • Jos nesto sto mi se dopada jeste sto niste 'osudjeni' samo na mat finish - sa puderom kozu mozete dodatno matirati ali, ako zelite, mozete strateska mjesta (poput jagodica, vrha nosa i sl.) uciniti sjajnim na lijep nacin uz pomoc iluminatora. Licno preferiram malo sjaja na tim mjestima jer mi djeluje da ten ipak izgleda zdravije na taj nacin. Obrve i trepavice su uvijek uredjene kada se sminkam - prirodno izgledaju ali definirano. Njezno sam konturisala jagodice a da li bi mi vjerovale kada bih vam rekla da za ovaj topli makeup uopste nisam koristila bronzer? Tacno, samo puder za konturisanje, iluminator toplog podtona i sjena na kapcima u nijansi ljesnjaka. Dobila sam upite za koristene proizvode, koje cu od sada uvijek  navoditi pri dnu ovih clanaka. Uzivajte!
