Makeup for Summer Heat

Tuesday, August 01, 2017

Živjo punce.
To poletje je eno izmed najbolj vročih in vročina še kar ne pojenja. Pri meni se to kaže v lenosti kar se lahko opazi tudi pri ličenju, saj se verjetno vse zavedamo, da se ličila hitro stopijo z obraza. Zato sama posežem po bolj minimalističnemu videzu z nekaj triki, ki mi dajejo udoben občutek ter svež videz tudi. Seveda je pri tem nujna uporaba izdelkov z dolgo obstojnostjo.
Trenutno je moja koža v najboljšem stanju do zdaj. To pripisujem negi z dvojnim čiščenjem kože (odstranitev ličil z micelarno in nato globinsko čiščenje z gelom z uporabo ščetke). Prav tako pa ne nanašam preveč krem - ravno toliko kolikor moja koža potrebuje. V vročini je manj več, pa vendar si želim tudi malo poenotenosti kože.

Hi girls.
This year we have been blessed (or cursed?) with heat waves. And with that comes the laziness facing with the fact that your makeup will probably melt off right away. Well, it's true and I do not understand the girls who still put on a whole cake face in this heat. Instead, I'd like to talk about how I do my makeup for very hot weather. Keeping it minimal is the key and using the right products which don't smear as fast. At the moment my skin is in the best condition it's ever been and the reason is probably behind double cleansing (micelar water + face wash using face brush which very deeply cleanses my skin) and not putting too much product on my face, not even many creams. So I don't need a lot of coverage, but still I want my skin to look even despite of my redness and freckles.



Ker imam mastno kožo, najprej nanesem matirno kremo ter počakam nekaj minut da se vpije. Nato pa nanesem še SPF ter spet počakam nekaj minut, da se še ta vpije.



Tekoči pudri se poleti kar hitro topijo s kože. Zato velikokrat posežem le po korektorju, saj ta že z nanosom tankega sloja nudi več prekrivnosti. Pri čemer uporabim mokro gobico za ličila.  Korektor z dolgo obstojnostjo (Lancome Long-lasting Softening Concealer - 01) nanesem na sredino čela, malce na nos ter na lica in brado, ter ga tako od znotraj navzven zabrišem s tapkanjem gobice. Korektorja ne potrebujem po celem obrazu, zato ga nanesem ravno toliko, da izenačim ten ter prekrijem nekaj nepravilnosti. Pod oči pa nanesem bolj vlažilen korektor s hialuronsko kislino: Bourjois Radiance Reveal (01), saj se mi od vročine področje pod očmi hitro suši.

Nato si malce definiram še obrvi z Golden Rose obarvano maskaro za obrvi (Brow Color Tinted Eyebrow Mascara). Ta poskrbi, da so moje obrvi vidne ter se ne zbriše. Maskaro zabrišem s krtačko za obrvi.

Sledi najbolj pomemben korak: nanos transparentnega pudra, ki omogoča dolgoobstojnost ličil ter vpija olja s kože. Trenutno uporabljam Paese puder v prahu. Gre za rižev puder, ki je zelo fino mlet ter absorbira odvečen sebum s kože, hkrati pa ne izsuši kože. Ti pudri so vedno zelo "prašni", vendar se le ta ob nanosu na kožo zelo lepo zlije, ter se ne opazi. Res je fantastičen, saj se niti po nekaj urah ne svetim, ter moja ličila ostanejo nedotaknjena dalj časa.



Nato nanesem bronzer, za zagorel videz. Že nekje 1 mesec uporabljam novost od Max Factorja: Crème Bronzer - v kamnu, v odtenku Light Gold (obstaja še temnejši, Medium Bronze), kateri je super za svetlo polt. Ne le da odtenek izgleda zelo naravno, temveč pristaja moji polti, ki ni tako porjavela. Tekstura je fina in se lepo zlije s kožo. Enako odličen je kot njihova Creme Puff rdečila in je eden izmed mojih najljubših izdelkov to poletje. Nanesem ga na obraz v obliki črke "E" ter tudi na pregib veke za definicijo ter tako dodam še malo topline na veke.



Na notranje kotičke oči pa sem nanesla mojo novo najljubšo senčilo: Colourpop - Going Rouge. Gre za svetlo bež senčilo, z lepim sijajem. Malce sem ga uporabila tudi kot osvetljevalec in izpade prav lepo.

Za končen videz oči, sem izbrala Avon Mark - Big & Daring maskaro, ki trepalnicam doda predvsem lep volumen. Krtačka je velika ter lepo priviha trepalnice. Za končen videz kakršnega imam rada sama, z njo večkrat "počešem" trepalnice. Ni najbolj dramatična maskara, vendar mi je všeč kako lepo razporedi trepalnice. Spominja me na Big & False Lash, saj ima tudi ta ekstremno obstojnost. Ne gre za vodoodporno maskaro, vendar deluje kot da bi bila. Je tako obstojna, da je micelarna voda ne odstrani ter uporabim oljni odstranjevalec. Prav tako pa na koncu dneva trepalnice izgledajo enake ter se mi maskara v največji vročini ne odtisne na zgornji pregib veke (to se mi velikokrat dogaja).

Videz zaključim s šminko, ki osveži videz. Sama imam najraje kremaste, v oranžkastih in koralnih odtenkih. Zato je Rimmel Moisture Renew šminka v odtenku: In love with ginger (660) pravšnja zame. Ustnic ne izsuši in čeprav je kremasta, je kar dovolj obstojna. Za podaljšanje obstojnosti nanesem 1 sloj, ga potapkam z robčkom ter ponovim nanos.



In še za konec: Avon Mark sprej za fiksiranje (Setting sprej). Seveda, kot že samo ime pravi: sprej fiksira ličila ter odstrani "praškast" videz ličil. Lahko pa se uporabljal tudi za pripravo kože na ličila. Meni se zdi, da kar pomaga malce podaljšati obstojnost, ter poskrbi da se vse na mestu. Ni mi pa všeč, da mi malce strdi lase, ko ga napršim na obraz in mi uide naokoli. Seveda je fajn preizkusit nekaj novega, vendar verjetno ne bo zamenjal UD All Nighter spreja, ki ga uporabljam, ko je nujno.
Kljub temu je Avonov sprej dobra alternativa.





ENGLISH 

Firstly I apply mattifying cream (for my usually oily skin) and wait a couple of minutes and afterwards I repeat the same with a cream with SPF.

Because foundations slide off easily in the heat, I opt for only concealer which gives me more coverage applying a thin layer. So I use a damp beauty blender with Lancome Long-lasting Softening concealer. I apply it on the centre of my face: a bit on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and then blend it out by tapping with a sponge. That is just enough to even out my skin and cover up any small imperfections. Under the eyes I use a more hydrating concealer with hyaluronic acid: Bourjois Radiance Reveal, because my under eye area has been drier due to hot/dry weather.

Afterwards I define my brows using Golden Rose Brow Color Tinted Eyebrow Mascara. It gives me enough color and definition. To blend it out, I use a spoolie.

And then I follow with the most important step: applying translucent powder. Currently I'm using Paese Rice Powder which really absorbs all the oils, but doesn't dry out the skin. It's finely mild and prolongs the wear of makeup. After a few hours I'm still not that shiny and my makeup is in place. Plus it doesn't give me a powdery look.

To add more shine, I added a Colourpop - Going Rouge eyeshadow to inner corners of the eyes and a bit on the cheeks as a highlighter. It's a nice light beige shade with pretty shimmer in it. 

Then I follow with a bronzer for a really nice summery look. I've been using Max Factor Crème Bronzer in the shade Light Gold (also a darker shade is available: Medium Bronze) which is perfect for my pale skin which doesn't get that tanned. It looks very natural and beautiful on the skin. And it has the same nice texture as their Creme Puff blushes. I apply it in the shape of a letter E and a bit into the crease of eyes to add some definition and warmth.

To complete the eye look, I use Avon Mark - Big & Daring mascara, which gives me nice volume and with a big wand curls up my lashes. It's not that dramatic, so I make sure to brush through eyelashes a few times to achieve the wanted look. It really separates the lashes. It's very long wearing, even though it's not really waterproof. I do have to remove it with oil based remover. However that's why I like it in the heat because it doesn't transfer onto my upper eyelid (which usually happens to me) and looks the same at the end of the day.

To brighten up and freshen the look, I usually use some kind of lip product. I like my lipsticks to be creamy and in bright orangey shades. That's why the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in the shade: In love with ginger (660) is perfect for me. The texture is not drying, however it still wears nicely. To prolong the wear, I apply one layer, then pat it with handkerchief and apply another one.

And to finish off, a setting spray is a must in the summer. I tried the Avon Mark Setting spray. It fixes makeup and eliminates the powdery look. You can also use it to prep the skin for makeup. I do think it makes my makeup a bit more long lasting, however sometimes it hardens up my hair when I'm not careful with spraying. It is a good cheap alternative, however it probably won't replace my UD All Nighter spray.
