Simple Sunday Funday Makeup Look


So here it is – the final installment of of the Essence Cosmetics Beauty Week Takeover! It's been so wonderful and interesting doing reviews in bulk and focusing on a brand – I've learned so much myself and I hope you found this week an interesting read at the blog. Since it's Sunday, I've thought of creating a very simple, very laid back make-up look suitable for any kind of activity really. You can do it under 10 minutes, it's easy peasy and fresh-looking. I'm calling it my Simple Sunday Funday Makeup Look and I've used mostly Essence Cosmetics products with a few exceptions – Filorga Beauty Balm was my base along with Clarins Instant Concealer  which I have set with my Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder. I have used Foxy from Urban Decay Naked Basics palette as a base all over my lid while Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Ochre was used to fill my brows. Those are my usual face paint staples these days and everything else gets rotated on a week to week basis. On a Sunday I'd usually skip eyeliner but the Essence Easy 2 Use Eyeliner Pen (1ml) was too easy to use (no pun intended) to skip it and – it reminds me a lot of my fave L'Oreal So Couture eyeliner. It's not a felt tip pencil type – it rather has a multitude of hairs put together in a compact brush and it works really well for me. It's super easy to use, has a decent longevity but I guess it could be a smidge darker. It's suitable for a relaxed Sunday look, though.

I dosle smo do posljednjeg posta u sklopu ovosedmicnog maratona kada Essence Cosmetics preuzima Meteo Beauty blog! Meni je sve skupa bilo jako zabavno i uzivala sam pripremajuci postove ove tematike, fokusirati se na odredjeni brend jer sam se ujedno i mnogo bolje upoznala sa proizvodima iz njihove ponude – nadam se da sam uspjela pripremiti zanimljivo stivo te da sam vas uspjela zabaviti sminkicom koju toliko volimo. Posto je danas nedelja, odlucila sam da kreiram jedan jako opusten makeup look koji bi odgovarao vecini situacija i aktivnosti kakve inace odabiremo za ovaj, sam po sebi, opusten dan. Dala sam svojoj kreaciji naziv Jednostavni Sunday Funday Makeup Look a za njega sam koristila vecinom Essence kozmetiku i naglasak je u svakom slucaju na njoj no bilo je i par izuzetaka. Filorga Beauty Balm je koristen preko cijelog lica kao baza uz Clarins Instant Concealer na problematicnim dijelovima lica dok sam sve fiksirala i blago matirala uz pomoc Bourjois Healthy Balance kompaktnog pudera. Koristila sam sjenu u nijansi Foxy iz Urban Decay Naked Basics palete u funkciji baze preko cijelog ocnog kapka dok je, kao i uvijek, Revelique olovka za obrve u nijansi Ochre koristena za popunjavanje obrva. To bi otprilike bili proizvodi koje inace koristim u posljednje vrijeme na licu a ostale komponente makeupa rotiram od sedmice do sedmice. Inace tokom nedelje ne bih koristila ajlajner ali Essence Easy 2 Use Eyeliner Pen (1ml) je toliko jednostavan za koristenje da bi bilo steta ne uklopiti ga u ovaj look. Jako me podsjeca na meni omiljeni ajlajner L'Oreal So Couture koji nije flomaster vec mu vrh sacinjava mnostvo dlacica (kao kod kista) koje su gusto zbijene i jako lijepo iscrtavaju precizne linije. Licno sam jako zadovoljna, bitno mi je da nije komplikovan niti zahtjevan za koristenje, pristojne je trajnosti no pretpostavljam da bi mogao biti mrvicu tamniji. Doduse, sasvim je prikladan za jedan opusteni nedeljni look.

As I've mentioned, my eyelid was primed with Foxy from UD Naked Basics eyeshadow palette and then I've applied some Essence Eyeshadow in 15 Hazel Me Not! (2,5g) in the crease for some definition. It's such a soft eyeshadow, there is some fallout but the blendability is wonderful and this particular color I find to be perfect for contouring. It's not too pigmentred but can be layered up. I am a big fan of such eye looks – matte, light base, some taupe/cool shade in the crease and a casual eyeliner flick. Effortless, not too difficult and fresh! Lashes have been coated with Essence Multi Action Waterproof Mascara (9ml) which isn't revolutionary at all but is a nice, basic mascara. It gives just the right amount of blackness, definition and separation while volume is minimal. It doesn't clump and it lasts all day since it is waterproof – perfect for a relaxed Sunday! This new blush I'm wearing is gorgeous and I think it's a new spring/summer release. Essence Silky Touch Blush in 90 Summer Dreaming (5g) has managed to push its way into my most used blushes of the past month thanks to its silky and butter texture. 90 Summer Dreaming is the perfect peachy/pink which I highly recommend – it looks beautiful on all skin tones and it has an amazing longevity (entire day on me!). I love peachy blushes from Essence, I think they do them so well. Finally, on a Sunday, I prefer things to be low-key as far as lips go. I'll probably head out for some drinks and a meal (desserts are a must) so I don't want anything too demanding. Essence Glossy Lipbalm Raspberry Sorbet (8ml) looks like something a much younger me would appreciate but it hasn't left my handbag since winter ‘14! This light pinky shade looks lovely on the lips, adds a very soft sheen (nothing glossy or oily) andit truly takes care of hydration. Supple, pillowy soft lips with a dash of raspberry aroma? Count me in! I hope you like this look, maybe you'll make your own version of it? Happy Sunday everyone 🙂

Kao sto sam spomenula, preko cijelog kapka sam koristila nijansu Foxy iz UD Naked Basics palete sjena za oci posto jako dobro ujednacava boju koze. Potom sam nanijela Essence sjenu za oci u nijansi 15 Hazel Me Not! (2,5g) u pregib oka kako bih izrazila njegov oblik. Ova sjena je jako mekana, malo se rasipa no sjajno se blenda i konkretno smatram ovu nijansu odlicnom za konturiranje. Nije narocito pigmentirana ali se moze slojevima intenzivirati. Inace jako volim na ovaj nacin nasminkati oci – neka svjetlija nijansa posluzi kao baza, taupe/hladna sjena za sjencenje pregiba oka uz lezernu liniju tusem za oci tik uz rub trepavica. Mislim da sve skupa izgleda lijepo, decentno i svjeze. Trepavice sam blago istakla Essence Multi Action vodootpornom maskarom (9ml) koja nije posebno revolucionaran proizvod vec je jedna solidna maskara za svaki dan. Pruza pristojnu definiciju, razdvajanje i dasak crne boje dok je volumen koji pruza minimalan. Jako je lijepe trajnosti posto je vodootporna – savrseno za nedelju kada ne zelimo da se opterecujemo sminkom vec da uzivamo u danu. Rumenilo koje nosim mislim da je iz nove kolekcije za proljece/ljeto. Essence Silky Touch rumenilo u nijansi 90 Summer Dreaming (5g) je uspjelo da se progura u grupicu najcesce koristenih rumenila tokom proteklog mjeseca i to sve zahvaljujuci divno svilenkastoj, gotovo puterastoj teksturi. 90 Summer Dreaming smatram da je savrsena breskvasto/ruzicasta nijansa koju toplo preporucujem – izgleda divno na svakom tenu, osvjezi ga i odlicne je trajnosti (na mom licu traje cijeli dan!). Inace sam ljubiteljica breskvastih nijansi od Essence-a, mislim da ih umiju napraviti jako dobro. I naposlijetku, tokom nedelje, zelim da situacija sa usnama bude sto jednostavnija. Vjerovatno cu izaci sa drustvom i popiti koje pice, mozda se pocastimo ukusnim jelom (a dezert se podrazumijeva!). Uopste mi nije na umu nesto upadno niti zahtjevno za nositi sto ce podrazumijevati popravke. Essence Glossy Lipbalm u nijansi Raspberry Sorbet (8ml) na prvi pogled djeluje kao nesto cemu bi se mladja ja jako obradovala ali nemojte potcijeniti ovog malisu – jos od prosle zime ne napusta moj neseser! Njezno ruzicasta nijansa jako lijepo djeluje na usnama, pridoda jedan mekani sjaj (nikako se ne radi o visokom sjaju) i uistinu hidrira usne. Mekane poput jastuka, njegovane usne uz blagi miris malina meni zvuce odlicno! Nadam se da vam se dopada look koji sam prezentovala, mozda ce se neka od vas odluciti da ga isproba? Zelim vam ugodan ostatak dana i da sto ljepse iskoristite ovu nedelju 🙂
