The Three Wine Fairies (Collaboration with Taya – My Little Beauty World and Adjusting Beauty)

Today’s post is a collaboration with two creative bloggers, Tatjana from Taya – My Little Beauty World and Petra from Adjusting Beauty. Like many other European countries, Slovenia is celebrating St. Martin’s Day, the day must turns to wine. We decided to take this tradition and turn it into makeup looks, transforming ourselves into three magical wine fairies.

I have to say, this was quite the challenge. On some days I get a million ideas, and then on others my brain freezes completely. The latter was the exact case with this look – I literally did about 5 versions because something was always bothering me, so I kept starting over. You know when you have a vision in your mind, but it doesn’t turn out the same in reality? I couldn’t decide on a colour scheme, mostly, but finally I went with a similar idea I had at the very beginning … Very practical indeed.

I don’t drink wine, but I do love grapes, so I focused on those and made them the main feature. I also wanted to incorporate something 3D again to give the berries some shine, so I used sequins and stuck them on with lash glue.

I needed something to “hold” the grapes so they wouldn’t just float on my cheeks. I came up with a simple mask-like design that represents the swirly vines grapes grow on.

I actually did 3 versions of this mask (the first one made me look angry and the second was too dainty), but I’m really happy with how the last one turned out. I drew everything on with black liquid eyeliner first, then patted sparkly bronze eyeshadow over it to make it appear more natural and dimensional.
(Having sad, overplucked, sparse eyebrows sometimes actually turns out to be a plus with makeup looks …)

Go check out the other two lovely creations, I love how we all came up with something completely different!

  3. Res odličen look si naredila. 🙂 Tvoj je meni tako futurističen in čiste linije so fascinantne. Moj eye liner ne bi bil nikoli tako perfekten kot tvoj :). Res odlično 🙂
    Očitno smo res vse imele malo problema pri inspiraciji – oziroma pri sami izvedni. Jaz sem sicer samo 2x preizkusila, ampak me je malo zapustila inspiracija.
    Vsekakor mi je bilo sodelovanje odlično in upam, da še kdaj sodelujemo 😉

    • Hvala! ❤ Uh, te linije so me tako utrudile, res sem šla 100-krat čez, da so izpadle tako čiste. Zelo pomaga, če si kupiš kakšen čopič a art trgovini z res mini ščetincami in delaš z njim. 🙂
      Ja, kot bi nam vino stopilo v glavo in ne bi vedele, kako bi se lotile 😀 Ampak je vseeno super izpadlo. Tako da jaz sem vsekakor še za kakšno sodelovanje v prihodnosti! 🙂

  4. Super mi je bilo sodelovati z vama. ❤ Te pa čisto razumem glede tega, da včasih zmanjka inspiracije. meni se je pri mojem looku tudi zdelo, da še ful nekaj manjka, zato sem danes poskušala znova, ampak naredila dokaj drugačnega, bolj jesenskega in še moj dragi je rekel, da ne spominja na vinsko vilo, tako da je ostal prvi. 😉
    Je pa meni tvoj zelo, zelo všeč, zdi se mi precej kreativen, poseben in res super odraža našo idejo. Si pa res lepo opisala naše tri looke. 😀

    • Tudi meni, bomo res morale še kdaj!
      Jaz sem naredila nekaj lookov, za katere sem bila res optimistična na začetku, potem pa niti od daleč ni spominjalo na to temo 😀 Sem cel dan samo dol drgnila mejkape. 😛 Saj ti bi lahko dodala na konec mogoče, kaj si danes ustvarila, ali pa naredi poseben post, ker me zanima, kaj si še naredila. Čeprav mi je bil tudi ta, ki si ga objavila, zelo všeč, ampak itak je tako, da sami pri sebi vedno opazimo tisto, kar manjka. 😉
      Hvala! ❤
