Beauty Quote: Audrey Hepburn

Savaitės vidurys - pats darbų įkarštis realybėje. Kažką spėji, kažko ne.. O jei dar iš šalies išgirsti vieną kitą patarimą "pro šoną"... Tuomet norisi kažko linksmo ir net šiek tiek sarkastiško. Kaip ir šios savaitės mintis apie grožį. Žavingoji Audrey Hepburn...


It's the middle of the week and there is so much work to do in reality... Sometimes it gets messy and if someone says something "off topic"... you know it can get more messy :) The best answer - something funny and sarcastic. Just like this week's  beauty quote by Audrey Hepburn.
Enjoy ;)

Review: Oriflame Beauty Eyebrow Kit

Pastaruoju metu rinkiniai antakiams labai išpopuliarėjo. Galima paminėti nemažai gamintojų, kurie jau turi tokį produktą savo asortimente (pvz. MUA, E.L.F. cosmetics, Benefit cosmetics, Too Faced, Urban Decay ir kt.). Aš noriu jus supažindinti su Oriflame rinkinuku. Apžvalga lietuviškai, kaip ir įprasta, jau greitai Makeup Demon FB puslapyje;) 


Many cosmetics companies (e.g. MUA, E.L.F. cosmetics, Benefit cosmetics, Too Faced, Urban Decay etc.) has launched the special kits for eyebrows. All in one - a good solution!

I've bought E.L.F. cosmetics eyebrow kit to my friend a few months ago. She's very happy and says that it's a very good product. I usualy use eyebrow pencil, but I'm very curious person so I decided to try eyebrow kit as well. It is a kit by Oriflame cosmetics. 

What I liked? Oriflame eyebrow kit contains two brow shadows, setting wax, two brushes (one for shadows, other for wax) and a mirror. 
Brow shadows are well pigmented, shades - dark brown and light brown (as you can see in the picture below). They are well blending and you can easily mix them if you want a different shade. 

Setting wax is good for fixing your brows, it doesn't affect colour when applying. 

The package is travel friendly - it's small, has a lower "drawer" for brushes under the palette. The mirror also is a good thing :) 

Package is 3 g, shelf life about 2 years. 

What I didn't like? The brush for shadows is too soft for me so I have to use a different brush. 

Shades could be colder (at least one of them), but it's just my personal wish, because I'm trying to match brow shade with my hair colour (as a rule says :) ). 

I would also like to have comb for brows in the kit, it would be more easy to form brows.

Would I buy this product again? Maybe :) I would like to try other brands kits for eyebrows. 

Suggestions? Have you tried other brand eyebrow kit?

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse vs Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation

<Pirmoji kosmetikos priemonių kova jau greitai lietuviškai Makeup Demon facebook puslapyje>

The first battle of cosmetics products is here! And let's start from the beginning or I should say - base. Battle between two foundations: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse vs Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation!


Let's start from Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.

Package 18 g. Consistency - mousse. Colour - classic ivory, light no. 2. 
This foundation has a very good coverage. It also conceals all darker spots and irregularities. Product colour adapts to skin well. 

When applying it looks a bit grainy, but if you use a foundation brush it doesn't affect the result, it covers smooothly. 

Pic.: good coverage and skin adaptation (sample on the hand)

Second product - Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation!

Package 18 ml. Consistency - mousse. Shade - no. 81.
This foundation is very light and flawless. It has a good coverage, looks natural. It also conceals skins irregularities, but not as good as Maybelline mousse. It is sold together with brush, but I have not tried using it, as it is small and round. So I'm using my favorite ecotools foundation brush (as you can see in pictures).


Verdict!

Both mousse foundations have a good coverage. I would recommend Maybelline for evening makeup, because it has a better coverage. And for day makeup - Bourjois, because it is lighter and looks more natural. Both foundations stay all day (if it is not too hot and you don't touch your face too often:)). They both have a good mattifying effect, no scent. Prices are the same level.

New York Fashion Week 2013 looks

< Ką gi, visai smagu užmesti akį į tolimojo New York'o mados savaitės nuotraukas. Rudens/žiemos tendencijų anonsai kaip visada - išradingi. Ir ne tik drabužių :) 
Šį kartą dalinuosi makiažo, manikiūro, šukuosenų idėjomis, kurias atrinkau pagal asmenines simpatijas. Tikiuosi, pasisemsite idėjų ir jūs ;) >



If you haven't seen New York Fashion Week 2013 here's a possibility to find some looks for Autumn/Winter. Hair and makeup trends. Latest and greatest :)

Eyes - soft smokey with dark cream liner. No blush and no bright lips. 

Galvos apdangalas - spalvinga skarelė.
Makiažas - dūminės akys, su ryškiu, juodu kreminiu kontūru. Veidui nenaudojami skaistalai, o lūpoms - tik švelnios spalvos. 








Derek Lam>

Pastel eyeshadows over the lids and up to the brows. 
Lips were left soft and almost nude.
Manicure - khaki nail polish.

Makiažas - pastelinių spalvų akių šešėliai, tepami per visą voką, iki pat antakio. 
Lūpos - švelnios, natūralios, "nuogų" atspalvių.
Manikiūras - chaki spalvos nagų lakas.





<Alexander Wang

Minimalistic look. Brows are light, skin - flawless matte. Only cheeks are a bit enchanced by using natural shades of blush.
Nude lips. 
Subtile and pretty.

Minimalistinis įvaizdis. Antakiai - šviesūs, veidas idealiai padengtas makiažo pagrindu, matinis. Skruostai paryškinti natūralių atspalvių skaistalais.

Nagai! Žibantis ornamentas ant juodo pagrindo - įspūdinga.

Beauty Quote: Tyra Banks

<Makiažas... Ką reikia - paslepia, ką reikia - paryškina... Nuspalvina niūrias dienas. Įkvepia eksperimentams... Rašyčiau ir rašyčiau privalumus. O jei trumpai - pritariu supermodeliui Tyra Banks :) >

Makeup... Enchances what you need. Conceals what you don't need. Colours your gray days. Inspires your experiments...

 I can write and write and write about its benefits. To sum up - read the quote below by Tyra Banks :)

Rock Eyes!

<Valentino dienos stengiuosi nesureikšminti. Žinoma, miela priimu dėmesį, tačiau itin didele ir svarbia švente tos dienos nelaikau. Tiesa, prisipažinsiu, jog tai buvo mano įkvėpimo tema rožiniam makiažui, kurį jau publikavau prieš keletą dienų.
Šiais metais man nuskilo - kaip tik Vasario 14-ąją Lietuvoje nusprendė apsilankyti žymusis gitaristas Slash su savo projektu. Geresnio šventės plano nebūčiau sugalvojusi (galbūt..), taigi, šiam Valentinadieniui sau pasirinkau makiažą atitinkatį temą - roko stiliaus! Ir kas gi daugiau jei ne dūminės akys (smokey eyes). Lūpoms rinkausi neutralų blizgesį, o skruostams - rusvus, natūralius skaistalus.

I cannot say that I'm a big fan of Valentine's day. Although it's inspirational, as you've seen it in my romantic makeup post. 

But mine makeup was not pink this Valentine's day... As you can see in the picture of this post :)

When I've heard that famous guitar player Slash (ex guns'n'roses) is comming to Lithuania with his project I thought that's the best Valentine's day plan ever :) I'm a big fan of Guns'n'roses as well as Slash so I couldn't resist :) 

If you choose a dark smokey eyes makeup to the rock concert - you will never fail :) And that was the choice of mine this Valentine's day. You can see the result in the picture - dark blue and grey colours with a soft shimmer. Neutral lipgloss for lips and natural blush for the cheeks.

<Sveiki, brangieji! Sveikinu Valentino dienos proga! Linkiu to, ko ir reikia šią dieną palinkėti... ;) Nesiplėsiu, tiesiog pasidalinsiu saldžia, švelnia, rožine fotosesija....>

Today I want to share sweet, pink, romantic photoshoot. Thanks to my model and colleague Agne!

I think that Valetine's day is not only about red lips! Let it be pink! Something light, sweet, not too bright. 
Enjoy....

Lips for Valentine's Day

<Ką gi, įžengėm į šventinę savaitę - Valentino diena ir Nepriklausomybės diena artėja nesuvaldomai :) Antrąją šventę, ko gero, daugelis minės santūriau nei pirmąją. Nieko keisto - komercija daro savo. Pliušinės širdelės daug kam mielesnės už tautinę atributiką... Nenoriu moralizuoti. Noriu pasidalinti keliomis idėjomis. Lūpos - labai svarbi veido dalis, ypač jei šventę švęsite ne vienos... Du variantai - natūralios lūpos su švelniu blizgesiu arba ryškios raudonos (apatinė lūpa kiek šviesesniu oranžiniu tonu, kad dar labiau paryškintų ir suteiktų putlumo)  ;) >


Holidays are comming - Valentines day and Independence day of Lithuania (16th February). I guess that the second celebration will have less attention. That's a bit sad, but commerce makes more influence... OK, today I don't want to discuss these things. Today I want to share a few lips ideas for Valentine's day.

The first idea is simple and usual - natural lips with a soft glow. For those who doesn't want a lipstick. Great and sexy choice.



The second idea is bright lips! Vibrant red. 

Furthermore here I have one trick. As you can see in the picture the lower lip is lighter than the upper. I used a red colour with orange shade for the lower lip, because I wanted to create fuller lips effect and enhance them. You can try it with other colours as well.

<Mane visada žavėjo ir tebežavi gotų stilius - įmantri apranga, masyvūs aksesuarai ir makiažas - tamsus, ryškus, dramatiškas... tinkantis beveik kiekvienam, atradus teisingus potėpius. Šio stiliaus negalėjo nepastebėti ir žymiausių pasaulio mados namų vizažo meistrai. Jų idėjomis ir dalinuosi. Galbūt rasite netgi idėja artėjančiai Valentino dienai...? ;) >



I always loved gothic style - impressive clothing, massive acessorries and makeup - dark, bold, bright, dramatic, extraordinary... You should be brave if you want to try it and wear it :) 

The most popular designers are also taking inspiration from gothic style. And here are their ideas. Maybe you'll even find here an ispiration for your Valentines day look? ;)

It's time for the best posts of the week!


ENJOY!

Every day Eye makeup

<Šį kartą noriu trumpai pasveikinti su atėjusiu savaitgaliu ir pasidalinti paprasta akių makiažo idėja. Balta + Pilka. Dvi achromatinės spalvos, tinkančios ir kasdienai ir proginiam makiažui. Gal pastebėjote, gal ir ne, bet dalindamasi makiažo idėja dažniausiai nenurodau konkrečių kosmetikos, kurią panaudojau, gamintojų ar pavadinimų. Kodėl? O gi todėl, kad idėją lengva atkartoti su bet kuria kosmetika, pasirinkus tinkamą atspalvį. O pajuokaudama galiu pridurti, jog už reklamą man kol kas nemoka :) Taigi, dvi spalvos, pereinančios išklaidyta linija - paprasta ir nenuobodu :) >


Yay, it's weekend! Hope you all have a good time!

Today I want to share one more idea - two colours: white and grey. Simple, but not boring eye makeup for every day. 

I think that these two acromatic colours go well with any colour of eyes. Just put them on the lid and blend the middle line between them. Mascara, lipstick - your choice ;)



P.S. Maybe you've noticed maybe not, but I'm trying not to mention brands of cosmetics I use for looks (only in reviews). It's because I think that you can get the same result using different cosmetic brands. If you're interested - just ask :)

Review: Artdeco Eyeshadow Duochrome in 207 (irish coffee)

<Dar vienas neplanuotas pirkinukas:)  Besidairydama BB kremo netyčia akis užkliuvo už Artdeco šešėlių, tinkančių magnetinei dėžutei. Kadangi manoji dar nebuvo perpildyta - nusprendžiau paimti kelis atspalvius išbandymui. Jūsų dėmesiui: 207- Irish coffee apžvalga lietuvių kalba facebook puslapyje: http://goo.gl/1k12m >

I was not planning to buy these Artdeco eyeshadows. I was looking for the BB cream at the store & they've reached my eyes so I decided to buy couple of shades. The first attractive thing about them was that they are suitable for magnetic box. I have one from M.U.F.E. and it is not fulfilled yet :)


What I liked? As I've mentioned there's a magnet on the bottom of the package and you can put it in every magnetic box. Artdeco has their own boxes as well. 

Pigmentation. This shade is very pigmented! And since it's duochrome the shade changes depending on the angle of the light :) 
It is shimmery, but not too much. You can wear not only for the evening makeup, but also during day.

This shade is very good for blending - you can create smokey eyes easily.

Package contains clear plastic protective lid. It can be removed easily.

The texture is soft, tender to apply. 


What I didn't like? Cannot complain a lot :) Well, maybe the package is too small according price. It is 0,8 g. 

The next day after my purchase I met my friend, who is also working as a makeup artist and she said she is not satisfied with some Artdeco shades - the pigmentation is poor. I can say that the other shade I have (it's 212) is not well pigmented comparing to 207.


Would I buy this product again? I would like to try other shades :)

Beauty Quote: Gene Simmons

Vyrai dažnai turi standartinę nuomonę apie makiažą - "per ryšku" :) Bet tik ne roko grupės KISS vokalistas ir bosistas Gene Simmons :) 

Ask men opinion about makeup and you'll often get the answer: too much. But not from band KISS singer and bassist Gene Simmons. He explains why... :)

Foods & drinks for glowing skin

Brangiosios ir brangieji, lietuvių kalba ši santrauka apie maisto produktus ir gėrimus, rekomenduojamus odos spindesiui palaikyti, pasirodys netrukus. Kantrybės arba translate ;) 

We have to take care of our skin every day! And today I'm going to talk not about skincare products. What we eat and what we drink is more important! Proper diet will help your skin to look healthy and fresh. 

I've collected tips from nutrition experts and now I'm sharing them here.


Everything what you eat plays an important part in how you look and feel. A balanced diet is important to whole body! Eating plenty of the right foods can help with your daily beauty regimen.

Main tips: 

  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Nuts and whole grain will help your skin keep glowing as well. 
  • Try to eat less fried and processed foods, avoid sweetened fizzy drinks - these products contain many toxins and additives that can stand in the way of glowing skin!
  • Stay well hydrated - water is no. 1 beauty product to me! It is essential to good health. Recommended beverages intake for women - 2 liters per day, men - about 3 liters.

Drinks for Glowing skin:

Green tea is a perfect drink when you want to reduce redness or irritation of the skin. 
Freshly squeezed juice restores your skin health. Especially recommended orange, lemon, papaya juice, they are rich in Vitamin C, full of antioxidants.


Foods for Glowing skin:

Deeply colored berries (blueberries, black currants etc.) are loaded with antioxidants, which are important for healthy skin.
Mangoes are rich in Vitamin A, which the bpdy can also extract from beta-carotene, is vital for glowing skin.
Brown rice are rich in ceramides and help your skin maintain its moisture naturally.
Zinc is mineral that increase production of collagene and improve the immune system. For more zinc eat Oysters and other seafood. 
The Omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel) slow down the wrinkling process.
