MOTD:Green Smokey Eyes (EN)








Hello everyone

Long time no see on the rubric “Makeup of the day”, well my last makeup post was about my birthday look back in January – you can see it here: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2017/01/motdbirthday-look-3-blue-brown-smokey_14.html

I really want to make more makeup post on the blog and I hope I’ll do more soon – there will be for sure makeup looks in red, copper and another green makeup looks soon : )) 

Today’s makeup is green smokey eyes – I a-d-o-r-e green





I started with applying eyeshadow base and then I set the base with some matte eyeshadow in vanilla shade (the light vanilla shade from the palette Taste of Chocolate/Flormar). Using shader brush I applied the eyeshadow Cannes by NYX all over my mobile lid as well on my lower lashline. The shade looks emerald green on the pan but on my hazel eyes and in combination with my yellow skintone it looks more like an olive green. Review on this eyeshadow will be up next month ;)

Afterwards I placed light yellowish-green shimmery eyeshadow in my innercorner (the light green shade from the palette Comfort Zone/Wet’n’Wild – review+swatches you can see here: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2016/01/reviewwetnwild-coloricon-palette-738_28.html)

Then using fluffy blending brush I mixed some matte brown eyeshadow with cool taupe (shades Wrapped Up & Boxed from the palette Oh So Special by Sleek – review and swatches you can see here: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2015/03/reviewsleek-i-divine-oh-so-special_18.html), which I applied in my crease to add some depth as well under the green on my lash line to smoke it up a little bit. 





Using tapered blending brush I mixed matte black with dark green eyeshadow (black shade is from the Sleek’s palette + the darkest green from the mentioned Comfort Zone palette by Wet’n’Wild) and I applied them both only in the outer part of my eye to smoke up the look.
 
Using an angled brush I applied matte black eyeshadow as an eyeliner on my upper lash line. Then I placed some matte sand-yellowish eyeshadow above the crease to warm up the look a little bit (The Mail/Sleek Oh So Special) and under my browbone I applied NYX Transylvania which is in beautiful champagne shade as highlight (review – here: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2017/04/reviewnyx-soft-matte-lip-cream_28.html) I finished the look with black eyeliner in my waterline and 2 coats intensive black mascara (Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious).




 
As I said many times – I lve green and I think this shade (+red) suits hazel eyes best and makes the pop. 

This makeup looks isn’t suitable for everyday or daytime but in my free time I often do my makeup in similar green shades and I match it with monochrome outfit or with my favorite green dress. 

Here on the blog I have another green makeup posted – in teal, which is greenish-blue shade. You can see it here: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2016/05/motdbeautiful-teal-kiko-colour-sphere_22.html

I won’t stop saying that green is beautiful color and looks incredible incorporated in makeup – green eyeshadow, eyeliner or eye pencil, green smokey eyes is in my top 3 favorite makeup looks

MOTD:Green Smokey Eyes (BG)



Здравейте ♥

От доста време не е имало грим пост в блога, последният такъв беше гримът от рождения ми ден през януари – тук: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2017/01/motdbirthday-look-3-blue-brown-smokey.html

Иска ми се да има повече грим постове и силно се надявам скоро да увелича броят им  - задължително ще има публикации на грим в червено, в медено-оранжево и още зелени гримове :))

Гримът днес представлява опушен грим в зелено – обожавам зелено ♥






Започнах с нанасянето на база за сенки и след това положих матови сенки в цвят ванилия по целия клепач (светлия цвят от палитрата Taste of Chocolate/Flormar). С четка за сенки тип „shader” нанесох сенките Cannes/NYX по целия подвижен клепач, както и по линията на долните мигли. Цветът в кутийката изглежда изумрудено зелен, но на моите пъстри очи в комбинация с жълтата ми кожа стои по-скоро маслинено зелен (ревю за сенките ще има през октомври ;))

След това с пенсил четка нанесох светъл жълтозелен блестящ цвят (светлозеленото от палитрата Comfort Zone/Wet’n’Wild – ревю+снимки можете да видите тук: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2016/01/reviewwetnwild-coloricon-palette-738.html

След това с пухкава блендинд четка смесих матово кафяво със студено сиво-кафяво (цветовете Wrapped Up & Boxed от палитрата на Sleek – ревю+снимки можете да видите тук: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2015/03/reviewsleek-i-divine-oh-so-special.html), които нанесох в сгъвката на клепача, за да пригам дълбочина, както и под зеленото, което нанесох по линията на долните мигли.





Със заострена блендинг четка смесих матови черни сенки с много тъмнозелени (черният цвят от палитрата на Sleek + най-тъмнозеленото от споменатата палитра на Comfort Zone/Wet’n’Wild ), като ги нанесох само във външния ъгъл на окото, за да опуша грима.

С помощта на скосена четка за очна линия нанесох матовите черни сенки по горния клепач, за да оформя очна линия със сенки. След това с блендинг четка сложих малко пясъчно жълто-кафяв матов цвят над сгъвката, за да затопля грима (The Mail/Sleek Oh So Special), а в областта под веждата сложих силно блестящи сенки в цвят шампанско (единични сенки в цвят Transylvania/NYX – ревю тук: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2017/04/reviewnyx-soft-matte-lip-cream.html)Завърших грима с матов черен молив във водната линия и 2 пласта интензивно черна спирала (Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious).




 
Както много пъти съм казвала, обичам зелено ♥ и смятам, че именно този цвят, наред с червеното, подчертава най-добре пъстри очи.

Гримът не е ежедневен в никакъв случай, но в свободното си време често се гримирам по идентичен начин в зелената гама, като съчетавам грима с монохромен аутфит или любимата ми напоследък зелена рокля.

В блога съм показвала и друг грим в зелено, но този път в нюанс teal (синьо-зелено), който можете да видите тук: http://preslavasbeautydiary.blogspot.bg/2016/05/motdbeautiful-teal-kiko-colour-sphere.html

Няма да спра да повтарям, че зеленото е прекрасен цвят и особено включен в грима под формата на сенки, молив или очна линия, стои чудесно, а опушен грим в зелено ми е в топ 3 на любимите гримове ♥

Вие харесвате ли опушен грим в зелено?

Review:NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream & Eyeshadow #Stockholm (EN)








Hello everyone

Today’s review is all about the duo Stockholm by NYX – soft matte lip cream in light pale nude shade and eyeshadow in extremely beautiful deep red shade




















Shade of the lipstick matches the bottle – light pale nude with warm peachy undertone which isn’t concealer type of nude. I am warm type and my skin has yellow undertone and on me Stockholm looks like light peachy-sand shade. I want to remind you that lipsticks with peach undertone tend to make your teeth look slightly yellow and keep in mind this fact in case you’re afraid of “yellow smile”. I think this shade would suit women with any undertone and light to medium skin shade because on deeper skin Stockholm might look too light and washing, which wouldn’t look best except if this effect is what you are looking for. I categorize this shade as an universal – it’s suitable for every day and you can combine it with any type of makeup: from light and fresh everyday “no makeup makeup” to the classic combination “dark smokey eyes & light nude lipstick”.











Consistency is soft and easy to apply, opacity isn’t full on 1 coat and you need at least 2 coats for full opacity. Usually pale nudes, especially when it comes to liquid lipsticks, tend to emphasize every imperfection on the lips so it’s good to apply a lip balm before the lipstick. Sometimes I wear Stockholm in combination with darker nudes – I apply darker shade nude lipstick on the edges of my lips and then I apply Stockholm in the center for an ombre effect and a touch of optic volume.  Stockholm is one of those lipsticks which look good with a bit of lip gloss on top – sometimes I apply some of the S-he Stylezone Nude lipgloss (review on it will be up in the near future: ))




Longevity is okay – around 4 hours and I need to reapply at least 2 times per day. This lipstick slightly dries out my lips and after removing it is good idea to hydrate them.

Stockholm reminds me a lot about another liquid lipstick that I own -Last Goodbye от Аура. Here is the comparison between:










As you can tell Last Goodbye has a bit more cooler undertone and it’s a bit more on the pink side, but in general it’s in the same peachy-nude shade. It also requires 2 coats for full opacity, it has better longevity than Stockholm and on my opinion if you can’t find the one you can definitely take the other one instead. 

I recommend Stockholm to those of you who like pale nude lipsticks with warm undertone. It’s easy to combine with different makeup looks and is unpretentious as color – it is quite an universal shade. 














The eyeshadow in the shade Stockholm is just… dream! It’s sharing the top place in my personal classification alongside with Rome. From 2014 (!!!) I am searching for an eyeshadow in deep red/wine/cranberry shade but without results. I’ve checked everything that is available on the market, from the drugstore up to Kiko and Inglot and I didn’t find anything identical to what I’m searching for.  The only eyeshadow I found as close to what I want is Mac Post Hase but it’s a bit pinker that I want it to be (I’m really capricious, I know!) To be honest when I first saw the eyeshadow Stockholm as I opened the matching window from the advent it was a gloomy and dark January morning and I was really hurry so I saw it and I thought that this eyeshadow is in a deep brown shade. A few days later I’ve swatched it on daylight and I was surprised to see that the eyeshadow is actually in deep red shade – ahhh! 

The eyeshadow in the shade Stockholm is in an especially beautiful deep red shade Finish is matte, consistency is soft and easy to apply, and longevity is high. I like applying Stockholm all over the mobile lid as well as smoking shade and it looks great both ways.







 
I wear mostly Stockholm alone or in combination with Rome – both shades match perfectly and I rock them even on everyday bases. I like applying Rome (copper-orangy shade) with an angled brush on 2/3 of my mobile lid and then finishing the rest and the tail of the eyeliner with Stockholm (deep red shade) or if I want to do the entire eyeliner in red then I place in my waterline with lip liner in deep red (I couldn’t find matching eyeliner so that’s why I’m using a lip liner :D) 

Red makes my eyes really pop and makes them look pure green (they are hazel in real life). For a night look I like to apply Stockholm all over the eyelid + the lip liner I’ve mentioned in the waterline and then to smoke my crease with matte shade in deep brown or even black eyeshadow – this way I get extremely bold and non-typical vamp makeup look  

Definitely red isn’t an universal shade when it comes to makeup – you need to be a little brave and really self-confidental to rock red makeup because it’s really eye-catching.  No matter if I’m doing deep red smokey eyes or only deep red eyeliner I always combine the rest of my makeup to my eyes – I combine the red eyemakeup with cool toned lipstick (like NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Rome, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick in the shade Cool Brown or simply a light pale nude lip gloss), brown or cool toned pink blush (like Milani Baked Blush in the shade Berry Amore or Kiko Colour Veil Blush in the shade #01) and highlighter with cool or neutral undertone (NYX in the shade Transylvania). I definitely have to post here on the blog deep red smokey eyes or everyday makeup in red so you can see how beautiful red shades could look worn on the eyes.
Definitely the shade Stockholm isn’t universal or often used so I recommend it to those of you who like red eyemakeup and would rock it. By the moment I think I’m am the only one that is rocking red eyeshadow, because everytime I’m in a store and ask for a red eyeshadow, eyeliner or pencil and always get a look that is saying “is this girl crazy?” and sentence like “red eye makeup products are non-existing” :D I enjoy red eyeshadow and rock them as well – I always get shocked looks and barely some compliments :D The only reason to wait for the autumn to come is to wear red eyeshadow more often to match the fall weather :))

The duo Stockholm is perfectly composed for my taste – lipstick in a light pale warm nude shade which matches basically every makeup look and eyeshadow in deep red, which I really love and wear quite often. The lipstick isn’t in unique or non-typical shade but the eyeshadow is just…ah-mazing!  I recommend this lipstick in case you don’t have anything similar and you are looking for a warm nude shade and I highly recommend the eyeshadow with both hands to those of you who are looking for a red eyeshadow :))

That’s it for the duo Stockholm, in October it’s Cannes turn – stay tuned!
