Makeup 101 – EYES/OČI

IMG_7701

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to talk about what you need to know when it comes to eye makeup. Over time I learned some tricks and tips how to do eye makeup, to make it look good and long lasting. I’m obviously not an expert or anything like that but I like to believe that I learned some stuff over time. So let me tell you my secrets when it comes to eye makeup.

Pozdrav svima! Danas ću sa vama po
dijeliti neke tajne i savjete kada se govori o svim proizvodima za oči. Ja nisam ekspert u šminci, ali vjerujem da sam naučila neke stvari tokom posljednjih godina pa sam mislila da bi bilo dobro da to podijelim sa svojim čitateljima!

First, it’s good to have some base on eye lids. You don’t need to buy eye shadow base if you don’t want to. You can basically use mat white or nude shade to put all over the lid and use it as a base for eye shadows. If you don’t have oily or sweaty eye lids this is perfect base for eye shadows. If you however have oily eye lids you may wanna use eye shadow base or concealer. When you apply either of these make sure you set them with mat eye shadow or face powder, just so eye shadows can blend easily on top.

Prvo potrebna vam je neka baza na očima. Postoji mnogo baza za sjene za oči, ali ne morate je imati. Možete jednostavno koristiti neku mat bijelu sjenu ili neku sjenu u boji kože. Ukoliko nemate masne kapke ovo je sasvim dovoljno. Ali ukoliko imate masne kapke onda vam treba baza za sjenu ili korektor. Samo trebate to setovati sa nekom mat sjenom za oči ili puderom tako da bi se ostale sjene lako blendale i izgledale dobro.

When it comes to eye shadows you don’t really need expensive palettes or anything fancy. When it comes to color, it is all about preference and what you like. I like neutral shades, very popular browny nudes. Also, I’m a huge fan of warm tone eye shadows just because they look good with green eyes. When it comes to which eye shadows you are going to use it is all about your preference and budget. I believe that you can make really good and nice eye look even with drugstore eye shadows. If you want to intensify color of eye shadow simply wet the brush with some makeup fixing spray or water. Also you can use your fingers to make eye shadows appear more pigmented.

Ne trebaju vam skupe sjene za oči da bi napravili lijep makeup look. Dovoljne su i palete iz drogerija, samo vam trebaju neki trikovi. Pošto većinom sjenila iz drogerija nisu puno pigmentovana možete koristiti prste jer će tako sjena biti bolje pigmentovana. Također dobro je smokriti četkicu sa fiksatorom ili običnom vodom, ovo pravi veliku razliku u pigmentaciji sjenila. Što se tiče odabira boja koje ćete koristiti, to je na vama i vašim željama. Ja volim tople tonove sjenila i neutralne smeđe, to je ono što ja gotovo uvijek nosim.

When we are talking about eye makeup we need to talk about blending. If you want your eye look to be amazing you have to blend eye shadows nicely. That means that you need some good eye brushes. I recommend Zoeva brushes, those are really amazing. But as those are pretty expensive, I also use Essence eye brushes, my favorite is eye blending brush. That one is just amazing, I have three of them. Also Real Techniques brushes are really great.

Kada govorimo o šminki za oči moramo govoriti o blendanju sjenila. To je vjerovatno i najvažnije. Ako želite da vam sjene na očima izgledaju dobro morate provesti nešto vremena u blendanju. Također potrebne su vam neke dobre četkice za sjenila, ja preporučujem Zoeva četkice, ali pošto su one dosta skupe onda ni Essence četkice nisu loše. Meni omiljena iz Essenca je „eye blender“ četkica, imam ih tri i prezadovoljna sam. Također Real Techniquest četkice su dosta dobre.

I know that for most of girls there is not eye look without eye liner. I don’t really wear eye liner, just because I’m really not into it. I used to wear it every day when I was in first two years of University, but my makeup preference changed a lot. My tip for mascara is that you need to curl your eye lashes before, this will help to open up your eyes more and mascara will look a lot better. One tip that I use all the time is using some sort of white or nude eye liner in water line, this makes your eyes appear bigger and wide awake. I’m not the biggest fan of black pencil in water line, I just don’t think it looks great on me. I’m huge fan of using bronzer in crease with big fluffy eye blending brush, it’s so easy and quick but it makes huge difference.

Znam da je za većinu djevojaka ajlajner obavezan. Za mene iskreno nije. Prije sam ga koristila svaki dan, ali se moje šminkanje i način na koji volim da mi šminka izgleda mnogo promjenilo. Ja ajlajner koristim samo za noćnu šminku ili kada nosim umjetne trepavice. Ako hoćete da vam oči izgledaju veliko i otvoreno onda preporučujem da uvijate trepavice prije stavljanja maskare. Također možete kombinovati više maskara da bi dobili debele trepavice. Još jedan savjet je da koristite bijelu ili bež olovku u liniji oka. To će vam otvoriti oči i izgleda mnogo bolje. Također ja volim koristiti bronzer u pregibu oka, to je najjednostavniji način da uradite neki izgled na očima, ali pravi ogromnu razliku.

  1. Even I dont like to wear any eyeliner. My eyes are hooded. When I wear an eyeliner, the eyeshadow is not at all visible with my eyes open😆 I tightline my eyes using a brown eye pencil…gives a soft look as compared to black😊😊❤

  2. Oh yes I totally get that, with hooded eyes eye liner just doesn’t work. I don’t wear it mainly because I’m lazy to do it and also it can look really harsh for daily wear and I do prefer more natural makeup. Brown pencil is better than black, as you said it looks softer. xx

  3. I think the biggest tip I learnt was to press on colour to build up intensity, because some people apply by sweeping it on, almost like blending. Great makeup looks! I am an eyeliner girl because I think I look tired without it. My eyelids are so big that they can look bare. xx

  4. You really are an expert in eye makeup – yours always looks fantastic! I absolutely love wearing neutral brown colours, and couldn’t agree more that blending is something that no one should overlook if they wish to achieve a good eye look:’)

  5. Thank you. Oh definitely pressing eye shadow is the best way, I also do it like that. I used to wear eye liner every day, but now my preference change, it’s so crazy how we go through phases with makeup. xx

  6. Oh this post is so good because I’ve been always interested in eye makeup. I’m not really good at this and any advice is good. Haha!
    I don’t use eye liner because I don’t know how to use it, I’m not good at this and I think it makes my eyes look weird.
    Thank you for this post! Have a wonderful holiday! xx
