The Three Wine Fairies - Collaboration with Tatjana (Taya My Little Beauty World) and Vesna (Chunky Cheeks)18:00
I am on fire with collaborations. It's so nice to promote other Slovenian beauty bloggers and share our love of makeup. Today's collaboration is with two of the most inspiring makeup bloggers.
I already did a collaboration with Tatjana from Taya My Little Beauty World. We did Modern twist on a classic makeup look. Tatjana is one of the nicest and positive smiley people. She always inspires me to do more artistic makeup looks. She was on fire this October with multiple Halloween inspired looks. If you don't know her definitely go check out her blog. My favorite of her latest makeup looks has to be Golden Goddess. I also really liked her innovative approach to clown makeup. She has tons of artistic and wearable colorful makeup looks.
A recent discovery and a very talented blogger is Vesna from Chunky Cheeks. I was completely blown away by her skill, when I discovered her blog. She is without a doubt artistic makeup soul and I really encourage you to check out her blog. I stared at her eye makeup that she did in her post Light in the Darkness. It looked like something from a magazine. She also did some amazing Halloween inspired looks, I really liked her Ursula from The Little Mermaid makeup look.
Both of these ladies also do a lot of reviews and other interesting posts, so there's something for every makeup loving soul. Do check them out.
Now onto my contribution to this collaboration. We decided to celebrate our Slovenian holiday called Martinovo, which is today, by creating some fantasy inspired makeup. I already spoke a little about Martinovo and did a wearable wine makeup. It's basically wine day celebration. This day wine reaches its full potential and becomes ready to drink. Traditionally we should also prepare a feast, which consists of goose and some other Slovenian food (mlinci). In my family we don't really celebrate this holiday, although we do make our own wine. I'm sure other two ladies will tell you even more about it, so I won't go too much into details.
We all did wine fairy makeup looks. My fairy is inspired by the time where wine reaches its full potential, grapevine doesn't have any grapes, the leafs are changing colors into gold and some are still green, while there is already young rich red wine ready for tasting. I hope I gave you some idea as to where my inspiration came from.
I started with eye shadow primer and a base flesh toned shade to make other shades blend easier. I used yellow gold in the inner corner of my eye. Bright light green was put next to the yellow one, more towards the center of the lid. In the center of the lid I mixed light green with darker bright green and blend it with previous shades.
Then I used copper toned brown and placed it in the outer V. All the shades are shimmery and fairly light. I used the same shades around the lower lash line. For liner I decided to go with dark brown instead of black, to compliment soft eye shadow shades. I did my usual wing fist. Then I lined my lower lash line and went out with a wing more straight from the outer corner of the eye, instead of going up. I also put upper eyeliner all the way in the very inner corner and tried to make more of a cat V shape in the corner. On the lower lash line I went a bit down when I came to the inner corner. This way I created some space between liner and the actual corner of the eye. Here I mixed gold glitter with lash glue and applied it in between.
Then I applied some false lashes and mascara on bottom and top lashes.
I've come to realize I really lack in colorful liquid liner department, especially for creative looks like that. I had no choice but to use the same cream brown eyeliner and I created some lines around the eyes, also going out from the eye liner itself. My idea was to create something whimsical and to maybe look like grapevine. For in between sparks I used more of that gold glitter mixed in with lash glue and dot it in between the lines with eyeliner brush, which created sparky dots.
On my lips I used two different colors of lip liner. I used dark red to outline my lips and mostly concentrate it around the outer edges of my lips. In the center I used bright light red lip liner. Over it I applied darker burgundy red more towards outer edge and I used mauve purple shade at the center of the lips.
I also used some grapevine leafs and glued them on the side of my face. I used the same lash glue as I did for everything and it worked, although I think you can use some school glue as well.
On my face I did my usual routine: foundation, concealer and powder. I used shimmery orange based bronzer and some contour on the outer edges of my face. For the highlighter I combined champagne and yellow toned shimmer shades to get as much glow as possible but not overdoing it. To compliment my red lips I used red based peach blush.
I can't say I am completely satisfied with my look. I actually wanted to try another one, but everything went wrong, so I just decided to post this one. It's pretty simple, but I hope it still gives you the idea I had in my mind.
Definitely go check out what Tatjana and Vesna did. We all gave ourselves the same theme, but I love the fact that our makeup looks are completely different. Tatjana used rich red and gold shades, which remind me of wine and leafs, while Vesna used purples and blues, which are the shades of grapes. Both look amazing and I thank you both for collaborating with me. I hope there will be more collaborations ;).
