Green eye liner and red lips
Green is my all time favorite color and I do have a
confession regarding this color – in 8th and 9th grade the only color I used
for my eye shadows was, you guessed it right – green. It didn’t even matter
what I was wearing ( yeah, I wore them with pink too J) green eye shadows all the way! I honestly have no idea what I was
thinking as I certainly was no expert in makeup or applying eye shadows,
therefore, you can already imagine how “great” the makeup look was J
Ever since my fiasco
with this particular look, I avoided green color for a long, long time
because I still have some pictures of this crazy teenager period that just need
to be buried very, very deep since I looked kind of ridiculous ( mildly said)!
Though of course, since I have not only grown older, but hopefully also wiser
and have trained my hand in applying makeup I am starting to use this color
once again, therefore, today I have prepared a makeup look in which I have used
cool tone neutral green eye shadows and a green eye pencil! To make this makeup
look a bit more festive, I decided to add a beautiful, classic red lipstick and
red nail polish ( as a color accent).
What are some mistakes or fails that you have had
during the teenager years? J
As you can already understand by the title of this
blog post, to achieve this makeup look I have only used products from essence
and Catrice. You can find the full list of products I used down below, but I
wanted to highlight some of the products that were my faves! For example, I am
completely smitten by the Catrice brow liner in Flashy Brows 020 shade. It has a very fine
tip/brush, therefore, you can define your brows very easily! After I have
defined my brows I use either an eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder from NYX. The
color suits my eyebrow color very well, so if you also have ash blonde
hair/eyebrows, this gel could suit you too! Another product that I definitely
recommend is the essence higlighter available in two shades Bright up your Life and Look on the Bright side. I don’t use any
brushes or other tools to apply the highlighter, only what mother nature has
given to me – my fingers, and I am able to blend the highlighter so nicely! Budget
friendly, qualitative and shimmering product! J
The third product that I’d like to highlight is the essence lipstick in shade Adorable Matt it is such a great and classic lipstick for the holiday season! It applies
so easily, thanks to the creamy texture; it lasts a long time and it doesn’t
dry out my lips during the day! What more could I ask? Oh right – it is also budget
friendly!

Zaļā krāsa ir mana mīļākā krāsa un pašlaik ar
nožēlu jāatzīstas, ka 8. un 9. klasē zaļas acu ēnas lietoju katru dienu (!) pat
neatkarībā no tā, ko tajā dienā biju uzvilkusi ( jā, pat ar rozā J). Ar šodienas prātu nu
patiešām nesaprotu to kāpēc biju tik ļoti ieciklējusies uz šo krāsu, jo
jāpiebilst, ka arī acu ēnu uzklāšanā tajā laikā es
noteikti nebiju eksperte, sekojoši variet iedomāties cik “labs” bija gala
rezultāts! J
Kopš šī zaļo acu ēnu perioda, es no šīs krāsas kosmētikā ļoti ilgi
izvairījos
, jo man vēl joprojām ir saglabājušās bildes no šiem trakajiem
tīņu gadiem un Dievs pasarg, ja kāds tās atradīs!J
Bet, protams, tā kā kļūstu vecāka un cerams arī gudrāka un esmu jau nedaudz
ietrenējusi roku kosmētikas lietošanā/uzklāšanā, tad palēnām sāku atgriezties
pie šīs skaistās krāsas un šodien esmu sagatavojusi koptēlu, kurā esmu
izmantojusi neitrālas zaļas acu ēnas, kā arī zaļu acu zīmuli. Lai tēlam
piešķirtu vēl lielāku svētku noskaņu – pieskaņoju arī klasiski sarkanu lūpu
krāsu un nagu laku!
Kādas ir Tavas tīņu gadu meikapa kļūdas, “feili”? J

Pēc šī raksta nosaukuma jau var noprast to, ka, lai
panāktu šādu koptēlu esmu izmantojusi tikai essence un Catrice kosmētikas
produktus. Kopējo izmantoto produktu sarakstu variet atrast šī raksta apakšā,
savukārt, tekstā es vēlējos izcelt tos produktus, kas patika vislabāk. Pirmām
kārtām noteikti būtu jāmin Catrice uzacu gēls pelēcīgi blondā krāsā – esmu
sajūsmā par šo zīmuli, jo ar tā palīdzību spēju ļoti precīzi izcelt uzacis,
kuras vēlāk aizpildu/aizkrāsoju ar vai nu uzacu zīmuli, vai NYX uzacu pūderi.
Krāsa manām uzacīm atbilst pilnībā un uzklāšana ir tik viegla un ērta – “peļu
pelēkajām” blondīnēm šo noteikti iesaku! Vēl viens favorīts ir essence sejas
krēmveida izgaismotājs – pieejams divās krāsās ( Bright up your Life un Look on the Bright side), uzklāšanai neizmantoju
nekādus palīglīdzekļus, bet gan tikai savus pirkstus, jo ar tiem ir visvieglāk
izgaismotāju izpludināt. Lēts, kvalitatīvs un mirdzošs produkts! Kā trešo
produktu es vēlētos izcelt essence lūpu krāsu tonī Adorable Matt, burvīga lūpu krāsu
svētku periodam! Ļoti viegli uzklājas pateicoties lūpu krāsas nedaudz
krēmīgajai tekstūrai, krāsa ir spilgta un noturīga, kā arī dienas gaitā lūpas
nesausinās. Un, protams, jāatceras vispievilcīgākai šī produkta īpašība – tā
pievilcīgā cena!

    Catrice has really good products! Unfortunately the eyeshadow looks rather blue on the pictures, but I think a dark green could suit you really well, also nowadays 😉 The red lipstick definitely looks amazing on you! When I started off with eyeshadow I only used purple because all the fashion magazines said that it looks best with green eyes. Now I hate purple and I think it looks really cheap as an eyeshadow xD

      The eyeshadow color was a really cool toned green + I believe the lighting could have done some tricks as well, therefore, the eyeshadows could look a bit blue!
      Haha, thank you, though I am still not sure whether I should commit to green eyeshadows just yet! 😀
      Purple is actually one of my recent favorite colors in makeup! 😀

    Skaists koptēls! No abiem zīmoliem man vairāk patīk Catrice produkti, jo viņu piedāvājumā vienmēr var atrast ādu lielisku pērli! 😉

      Zandu, mīļš paldies! 🙂 Jā, man Catrice arī patīk vislabāk, bet noteikti patīk arī Essence lūpu krāsas, kopš tām tika uzlabota formula!
