3 LIP LOOKS FOR VALENTINE'S

With Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to show you the make up I'll be wearing for that day. When I got to it however, I couldn't decide which lip to go with... so I went with three options. I wanted a sweet girly look with the pink lip gloss, but the red lipstick matched with my blouse perfectly and I really love the dark look as well. Do you have a favourite?


Sõbrapäeva eel tahtsin proovida, milline meik selleks päevaks sobiks. Ma ei ole küll eriline tähistaja, aga kui põhjust on, siis huuled värvin ikka ära.. ainult et ma ei suutnud ühe variandiga piirduda. Mulle meeldis armas pehme look roosa huuleläikega, aga samas sobitus klassikaline punane huul täpselt mu pluusiga ja vampy välimusele ei suuda ka ei öelda. Kas teil on lemmikut?
I've started off doing my base using the MAC prep+prime primer, then going in with the Estée Lauder EE cream to even out any redness and finishing off with the L'Oréal Infallible foundation. It is the most high-coverage foundation I own, so I use it for days when I need maximum coverage, however it is insanely matte. I found that using the Estée Lauder EE cream kind of evened that out, so I had the full coverage I wanted but still kept some natural shine to the face. Here's me looking like a ghostface killah (well, not really, he's black), blending with my beauty blender.Alustasin MAC prep+prime praimeriga ja tegin põhja veel üle Estée Lauderi EE-kreemiga. See aitab enne jumestuskreemi nahatooni (punast ning sinist, mis kohati mu nahas esineb) ühtlustada. Leidsin ka, et kui muidu L'Oréal Infallible jumestuskreem on matimast matim, siis EE-kreem (usun, et siinkohal sobiks ka BB-kreem) suutis natuke loomulikku läiget näkku taastada.
I'm doing all of my eye make up with the Naked 2 palette as always. It's the best quality palette I own and it has all the shades that I need. Järjekordselt kasutan ainult Naked 2 paletti. See on mu lemmik lauvärvipalett, kvaliteet ja pigment on suurepärased ja siin on esindatud kõik mu lemmiktoonid.

After using an eyeshadow primer (I used the Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion), I'm patting the shade Chopper on the ⅔ of my eyelid and then blendind it across the eyelid. The patting motion will ensure I pack on a lot of the pigment and shimmer. I'm not too concerned about it looking perfect at the moment, because I will be doing some more blending.

Pärast lauvärvipraimeri kasutamist (ma kasutan Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion-it), kannan tooni Chopper patsutavate liigutustega esimesele kahele kolmandikule silmalaust ja mitte silmakoopast kaugemale. Edasi-tagasi liigutustega hajutan selle üle terve silmalau. Patsutavad liigutused tagavad, et sellesse osasse lisan maksimaalselt pigmenti ja sära. Hetkel väga perfektse hajutamise pärast ei muretse, sest kohe lisan veel lauvärve.

Using a tapered brush, I'm taking the shade Snakebite and making a V-shape on the outer crease. Kasutan koonusekujulist pintslit ja kannan tooni Snakebite lau tagumisse osasse, tekitades sinna V-kuju. Hajutan täpselt kulmuluu kohapeal (mitte kõrgemalt).

I felt it still lacked a bit of depth, so I added a smaller V-shape with the shade Busted (the darkest brown) and blended that all out, using a small buffing brush. I also use the highlighter shade Bootycall in the inner corners of my eyes.

Sügavusest jäi natuke väheks, nii et lisasin veel kõige tumedamat pruuni tooni (Busted) väiksema V-na samasse kohta ja hajutasin taaskord koonusekujulise pintsliga. Kasutasin heledat tooni Bootycall silma sisenurkades.

Here I've added a winged liner, using the Makeup Academy Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner in Black (they don't sell the same eyeliner anymore, but the closest one I found is THIS) and used the Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Sexy Blacks Waterproof mascara (woah, mouthful). This is all I will be doing to the eyes and this is the finished result.

Lisasin veel vedela laineriga lainerijoone (kasutasin Makeup Academy Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner-it mustas toonis, mida nende kodulehel küll enam ei müüda, aga lähim variant on SEE) ja värvisin ripsmed Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Sexy Blacks Waterproof ripsmetušiga. See on kõik, mis silmadega teen ja tulemus on selline.


Moving on to the face. I will be using the Anastasia Contour Kit, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and Mary Lou-Manizer, my trusted and favourite highlight. I have the Anastasia Contour Kit in Medium to Tan, because the place I ordered it from was out of stock of the light version and I really wanted it, so I thought I don't care. I don't recommend the Medium to Tan version for people with light skin though - you will have no use for the highlight shades. I'm drawing a 3-type figure starting from my temples and all the way to my jawline using the contour shade Havana just to add a bit of warmth to the face (remember my Ghostface Killah look?). Then I'm using the baked blush just on the apples of my cheeks (and a little higher) and finishing off with the Mary-Lou Manizer on top of my cheekbones. I'm also adding a bit of contour with the same contour shade on the sides of my nose and using my finger to add a bit of highlighter down the center of my nose.

Liikudes edasi näo juurde, kasutan Anastasia Contour Kit-i, Milani põsepuna toonis Luminoso and Mary Lou-Manizer-it, mu usaldatud ja lemmikut highlighter-it. Tellisin Anastasia Contour Kit-i vales toonis ja ei soovitaks seda heleda nahaga inimestele, sest highlighter toonid jäävad selles paletis kasutuks. Joonistan 3-tüüpi kujundi oimukohtadest lõualuuni kasutades kontuurpulbri tooni Havana. Lisan sellega näkku veidi soojust. Kasutan põsepuna põsetippudel ja Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter-it põsesarnadel. Kasutan samas toonis kontuurpulbrit ninaseinadel ja nina keskele lisan näppudega highlighter-it.

Now for the last part - the lips. I like this really simple pink lip gloss look, because it feels like you're not trying too hard. I'm simply using the Lancôme Gloss in Love lipglaze in the shade 302 Rose Oscar. I tried layering this with a lip liner, but I felt it would be too much for this look. I would go to a first date with this look, or when you've just recently met the person and you're going for an easygoing vibe. 

Nüüd aga kõige põnevam osa - huuled. Mulle meeldib see lihtne roosa huuleläikega look, sest see tundub nii sundimatu. Kasutasin Lancôme Gloss in Love huuleläiget toonis 302 Rose Oscar. Proovisin seda ka roosa huulepliiatsiga, aga isegi siis tundus see liiga ülesklantsitud. Selline välimus sobiks esimeseks kohtinguks või minnes välja inimesega, kellega alles hiljuti oled kohtunud. 

So the second look is heaven for a red lip lover like me. I just had to add it, because it matches my blouse perfectly. I would wear this look anywhere really. Adding a red lip makes me feel more confident in a second. This time I was clever enough to hold what I was using on my lips. It's an old lip liner in the shade Red Drama from Makeup Academy. I used to buy a lot of their stuff back when I was in University and broke as a m... and hey, there are some hits and misses among their products but this £1 lip liner is definitely a hit in my book. It was my main lip product all through University. I've upgraded my lipstick game since then and using MAC Russian Red (also massive favourite).

Teine välimus on sellisele punase huule armastajale nagu mina. Lihtsalt pidin selle lisama, sest see toon sobib mu pluusiga ideaalselt. Ma läheks selle välimusega praktiliselt ükskõik kuhu. Punase huulega on võimalik märkamatult glamuuri ja enesekindlust lisada. Huulepliiats on jällega MUA oma toonis Red Drama ja ma kasutasin seda terve aja kui käisin ülikoolis (ja rahaga väga priisata polnud). MUA kvaliteet on seinast seina, aga see £1 huulepliiats sobib mulle väga hästi. Huulepulgana kasutan MAC Russian Red-i, mis on ka mu suur lemmik.

The third look comes to you as a dark vampy red lip which made me the most excited. This lip is however also the most difficult to maintain, as a dark red gloss is not only completely obvious when fading, it can also stain your teeth and everything else around (coffee cups, forks, food). So kissing with this lip combo on might be a bit difficult! It's still such a beautiful look though. Here I've used MAC lip pencil in the shade Vino and Chanel Rouge Allure lip gloss in the shade 72 Controversy.

Kolmas välimus põhineb tumepunasel huulel, mis minu südame kõige tugevamini tuksuma pani. Kahjuks on seda kombinatsiooni ka kõige keerulisem kaunina hoida. Tumepunane huuleläige mitte ainult ei kulu kõige kiiremini, vaid võib ka hammastele ja ümbritsevatele objektidele kanduda (näiteks tassid, kahvlid, toit). Musitamine võib selle komboga niisiis keeruliseks osutuda! Sellegipoolest on see väga ilus tume look. Kasutasin selle saavutamiseks MAC huulepliiatsit toonis Vino ja Chanel Rouge Allure huuleläiget toonis 72 Controversy.

This has been such a long post with so many pictures and words that I'm going to stop now. And go. Bye Felicia! By the way, which is your favourite look? And are you going simple on Valentine's or all out? Or something in between? Let me know!

See on olnud kohutavalt pikk postitus nii paljude piltide ja sõnadega, et ma nüüd parem lõpetan. Kas teil on nendest look-idest lemmikut? Kas plaanite võtta sõbrapäeva rahulikult või on eksklusiivsed plaanid tehtud?
