Eye Pencils as Eyeshadows | Peacock-Inspired Makeup

Maybe I'm getting a teensy bit paranoid but as if I can hear whispers that my everyday natural make-up is boring. I know, I know – the entire point is to show what I'm actually wearing and I think I'm managing that part rather well. You all know what I love to use on that everyday basis and business sometimes leaves no room for me to play with color. Sometimes things us grownups have to do leave little to no time to play around with makeup. And that (in a way) makes me sad. I love color, I love experimenting, showing my creative side – this blog was born with that exact thought in mind! That's why I made time before one busy night shift to create a peacock-inspired eye makeup look. Very random, true – but those few minutes were extremely fun and enjoyable. I left with a smile on my face to work! Now, the true topic here is using eye pencils as eyeshadows. It can be done but you'd need really good quality eye pencils, of solid pigmentation, longevity but still moldable texture which you can manipulate. I was given a few new shades of Avon Glimmerstick eye pencils to try – they're not new to me. The Avon Glimmerstick Brights in Cobalt Cool is my fave pencil to use on the waterline and it totally stole the show in my NYX lime-inspired eye look with sharp eyeliner (check it out here). My waterline is extremely difficult to paint and this guy aces this task. I'm definitely interested in getting more shades from that eye pencil range but here I have a few shimmery ones that aren't supposed to be used on the waterline + a cool true black kohl which has lined my eyes perfectly.

Mozda postajem pomalo paranoicna ali kao da cujem sapat glasova da je moj makeup za svaki dan u zemljanim tonovima dosadan. Znam, znam – poenta jeste da vam pokazem ono sto u stvarnosti nosim i sto se toga tice, mislim da sam prikazala prilicno vjeran prikaz cinjenicnog stanja. Znate tacno sta koristim i volim ali nekada obaveze ne dopustaju da eksperimentisem sa bojama, a voljela bih. Nekada je zivot odraslih individua stvarno monoton, uhvaceni smo u rutinu a ja nisam izuzetak. Na neki nacin me to rastuzuje. Volim da eksperimentisem, volim boje i imam veliku zelju iskazati svoju kreativnost – sve su ovo razlozi zbog kojih je i nastao ovaj blog. Sa ovom mislju vodjena sam u taj prenatrpani raspored svakodnevnice ipak ugurala par minuta pred odlazak u nocnu smjenu da napravim ovaj makeup look, inspirisan bojama paunovog perja. Potpuno neplanski ali priznajem da su te minute odlicno utrosene. Toliko sam se rasteretila dok sam se igrala sa sminkom da sam na posao dosla potpuno zen, sa osmijehom na licu! Eh sada, prava tema ovog posta jeste koristenje olovaka umjesto sjena za oci. Da bi to ucinile, trebale bi nam kvalitetne olovke, dobre pigmentacije i trajnosti ali teksture dovoljno podatne da sa njom mozemo manipulisati. Nedavno sam na isprobavanje dobila par novih boja Avon Glimmerstick olovaka – no nisu mi noviteti. Avon Glimmerstick Brights olovka u nijansi Cobalt Cool mi je omiljena olovka koju koristim za waterline (unutarnji, donji rub oka). Inace mi je waterline dosta osjetljiv, kada olovku nanosim oci mi jako suze i rijetko koja se olovka moze izboriti sa ovim problemima – ova to moze!  Toliko je dobra, lijepa i fantasticno pigmentirana da je ukrala paznju posta o NYX limeta zelenom look-u (mozete ga pogledati ovdje). Definitivno bih zeljela nabaviti preostale nijanse Brights linije a sada sam isla u suprotnom smjeru jer sam koristila olovke sa shimmerom koje se ne bi trebale koristi na waterline-u + istinski, bogato crna kohl olovka koja je tu uskocila.

I've primed my eyelids with the Avon Eyeshadow Primer, filled gaps and slightly shaped my brows with my fave eyebrow pencil (Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Ochre) and then I've mapped the shape of my eye with Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds in Twilight Sparkle. This is a beautiful night blue shade with lots of cobalt shimmer. I've used my clean fingertips to smudge every shimmery eye pencil. Fun fact: fingers are my fave tool when smudging eye makeup is in question. I've mostly applied this blue eye pencil in the outer ‘v’ shape of my eyelid and on the outer side of the lower lash line. Then I took Avon Glimmerstick Chromes in Ultra Violet and concentrated it on the midst of my lid. This is a quite intense, pigmented and vibrant purple. It is shimmery but shimmer is smaller, finer and less scratchy. I'd even think about applying it on the waterline (maybe!). I was working my way with the opaqueness and applying and smudging several layers as I went through with my design. Then I've applied Avon Glimmerstick Cosmic in Galactic Green above the purple and pulling it almost all in the inner corners of my eyes. It's a lush olive green with golden shimmer which looks absolutely stunning and it catches light beautifully. Then I took Avon Big & Daring Glimmerstick Kohl in Boldest Black to tightline and line my waterline. I think this very deep, intense black gave depth to the look and tied everything together. I have sprinkled some gold shimmer under my brow bone and on the center of the lid – it's part of a fab drugstore eyeshadow palette I'll be reviewing soon. On top and bottom lashes, as always, I am wearing my fave L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes Mascara. What do you think? Should I be making more colorful looks?

Ocne kapke sam pripremila uz pomoc malo Avon baze za sjenu za oci, popunila sam i blago oblikovala obrve uz pomoc meni najdraze Revelique Olovke za obrve u nijansi Ochre. Potom sam uz pomoc Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds olovke nijanse Twilight Sparkle ugrubo iscrtala oblik oka i oblik koji zelim postici. Ova olovka je stvarno lijepa posto je nocno plave boje i prozeta je kobaltno plavim shimmerom (kombinacija iz snova). Koristila sam ciste prstice kako bih razmazala ovu i svaku olovku koju sam koristila. Interesantno je da sam za razmazivanje sminke za oci uvijek najvise voljela koristiti prstice. Plavu olovku sam ipak najvise fokusirala i najvise nanijela u vanjskom dijelu oka koje formira slovo ‘v’ (gdje se rubovi oka spajaju) i uz donji rub trepavica. Zatim sam koristila Avon Glimmerstick Chromes olovku nijanse Ultra Violet najvise na sredini ocnog kapka. Ovdje se radi o jako pigmentiranoj ljubicastoj olovci, svjezeg i jarkog pigmenta. Sadrzi shimmer ali je dosta sitniji, finiji pa bih cak pokusala da je koristim i na watereline-u (da vidim kako ce to proci). Intenziviranje pigmenta sam postizala slojevitim nanosenjem i razmazivanjem (iznova i iznova), dok nisam postigla zeljeni izgled. Potom sam nanijela Avon Glimmerstick Cosmic olovku u nijansi Galactic Green iznad ljubicaste sredine, povezala je sa plavom i potom je koncentrisala na unutarnji kut oka. Ova mi se olovka jako svidja – bogata, lisnata maslinasto zelena sa krasnim zlatnim shimmerom koji se na svjetlu fantasticno presijava. Avon Big & Daring Glimmerstick Kohl olovku u nijansi Boldest Black sam koristila na waterline-u i za tightline (popunjavanje prostora izmedju gornjeg reda trepavica i koze). Mislim da je lijepo uokvirila oci. Malo zlatnog shimmera sam posula ispod obrva i po sredini oka. Ako vas zanima, rijec je o necemu iz nove drogerijske paletice koju cu uskoro recenzirati na blogu. Na gornje i donje trepavice sam nanijela sloj meni najdraze L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes maskare. I, sta mislite? Da li da cesce posezem za bojama u sklopu sminkanja?
