Painting with make up (fashion illustrations) + FAQ / Slikanje šminkom (modne ilustracije)+ česta pitanja
What is painting with make up? What it is like? Is painting with make up even possible?
Sure it is possible. You can paint with pretty much anything that leaves traces on paper. In fact, depending on the product you can both paint and draw with make up. It is something that can be done. I've done it without ever googling it or reading about it, without seeing a tutorial or researching it. I rememeber how natural it felt to make the first make up paintings and illustrations back in 2014 (here and here). To this day I haven't really researched this subject because it was so much fun figuring it out for myself. No need to follow my example, though. Internet is packed with ideas and tricks that can make our lives easier.
What does it feel like to use beauty products to create paintings?
Well, it is fun but it is also a bit challenging. You take some make up product (mascara, lipstick, eyepencil or eyeshadow) and you play around with it. It can be very entertaing as long as you don't stress about it and learn to enjoy the process itself. It might take you some time to figure it out, but everything does. Whatever else it may feel like, you can be sure it will feel fresh. Something fresh, something you haven't tried before- isn't that a good thing? Painting with make up on paper is something most of us have never done. Your brain will respond to it. Doing new things is the best way to keep our brain active and supposedly that helps to fight off depression. So, even if you end up hating what you painted, it won't be a waste of time. Have fun!
Što je slikanje sa šminkom? Kako je slikati sa šminkom? Je li uopće moguće slikati s šminkom?
Naravno da je moguće. Moguće je slikati s bilo čime što ostavlja tragove na papiru. U stvari, ovisno o proizvodu moguće je i crtati i slikati s šminkom. To je nešto što se može. Ja sam to napravila bez da sam ikada potražila to na internetu ili čitala o tome, bez da sam pogledala ikakav tutorial ili istraživala o tome. Sjećam se kako mi se činilo prirodnim napraviti prve slike i ilustracije (ovdje i ovdje) sa šminkom 2014.godine. Do danas nisam uopće istraživala o ovoj temi zato što bi je bilo toliko zabavno sama sve otkrivati. No, to ne znači da biste i vi tako trebali. Internet je pun ideja i trikova koji nam mogu olakšati život.
Kakav je osjećaj koristiti kozmetiku za stvaranje slika?
Pa zabavno je, ali može predstavljati i izazov. Uzmete neki kozmetički preparat (maskaru, ruž za usne, olovku za oči ili sjenilo) igrate se s njim. Može biti jako zabavno dok god se previše ne brinete i naučite uživati u samom procesu. Možda će vam trebati malo vremena da sve shvatite, ali tako je sa svime. Kakav god još bio osjećaj, biti će prisutan osjećaj novoga. Nešto svježe, nešto što još niste probali, pa zar nije to nešto dobro? Slikanje sa šminkom je nešto što većina nas još nije probala. Vaš će mozak reagirati na to. Isprobavati nove stvari je najbolji način da održimo mozak aktivnim, a navodno pomaže i kod depresije. Tako da čak i ako vam se ne svidi ono što se naslikali, to neće biti gubitak vremena. Uživajte!
Do I need to buy make up in order to paint with it?
No, you don't. That's the beauty of it. You can use old products, the ones that you don't use or need anymore. You can recycle them. Instead in the bin, let them end up on your desk. Put the make up in a nice glass, mug or some container and give your desk might a lovely make over. Place a paper on your desk and you're ready to go. Spend these beauty products in a creative way, by creating something meaninful ( a painting, a remainder, a birthday card) on paper. Big plus: you don't ever need to worry about feeling guilty about not using up a certain make up product. It may not feel like much, but it can make you feel a bit better about yourself. Some women just can't make themselves get rid of a certain beauty product, even after it is past its expiration way. Well, this gives you an excuse to hold on it a bit longer and not only so that you can admire the packaging.
Trebam li kupiti šminku da bi s njom crtala?
Ne, ne trebaš. U tome je ljepota. Možeš koristi staru šminku, onu koja ti više ne treba ili je više ne koristiš. Možeš ju reciklirati. Umjesto u smeću, neka završi na tvome radnome stolu. Stavi je u lijepu čašu ili neku zdjelicu i možda ti radni stol poprimi divan nov izgled. Stavi papir na stol i spremna si. Potroši šminku na kreativan način, tako da stvoriš nešto značajno (sliku, podsjetnik, rođendansku čestitku) na papiru. Veliki plus je to što se ne moraš brinuti oko osjećaja krivnje jer nisi iskoristila neki određeni make up proizvod. Možda se ne čini kao puno, ali ćeš se vjerojatno osjećati malo bolje. Neke žene se jednostavno ne mogu prisiliti baciti određenu šminku u smeće, čak i kada joj je prošao rok. S ovim imaš izliku da je još malo zadržiš i ne samo kako bi se divila pakiranju.
Is painting with make up difficult? Is it more dificult than painting in general? Is painting with make up easier that painting with regular make up?
That question is not easy to answer. I'm obviously not an expert. However, it is something I have been doing for a while so I would like to convey to you my experience. I don't really have a simple answer to this question because painting with make up can be both easy and difficult. It depends on what you're trying to do. Painting a complex painting is never easy, it always takes a lot of energy and it is terribly draining. Basicially, my answer would be that sometimes it feels easy and sometimes it doesn't. There are times when something turns out the way I wanted it, but sometimes it doesn't and I feel quite frustrated and very annoyed with myself. However, sometimes it turns out better than I hoped it would and then I feel pretty good about myself. So, basicially just like regular painting. That is why I said you should enjoy the process. You can always attempt a more ambitious painting later ( and you may continue to fool around for as long as you like).
Je li slikanje sa šminkom teško? Je li teže od običnog slikanja? Je li slikanje sa šminkom lakše od običnog šminkanja?
Nije jednostavno odgovoriti na ovo pitanje. Očito nisam neki stručnjak. No, to je nešto što radim već neko vrijemo pa bi voljela prenijeti vam svoje iskustvo. Doista nemam jednostavan odgovor na ovo pitanje jer crtati i slikati sa šminkom može biti i lako i teško. Ovisi o tome što pokušavate napraviti. Naslikati neku složenu sliku nije nikada lako, treba tu uložiti jako puno energije i to poprilično iscrpljuje. U stvari, moj odgovor je da se nekad čini lako a nekada ne. Ponekad stvari ispadnu onakvima kakvima sam željela da ispadnu, ali ponekad i ne pa se onda osjećam dosta frustirano i sama sebe živciram. Ponekad pak, ispadne bolje nego što sam se nadala i onda se osjećam poprilično samozadovljno. Tako da je to kao i obično slikanje. Zato sam rekla da treba uživati u samom slikanju. Možete uvijek kasnije pokušati ambiciozniju sliku kasnije (zafrkavajte se dok želite).

How to paint with make up?
My answer is just go with the flow. Take all the time you need. There are no wrong and right answers. Maybe you'll be the first to do something. Take some product and see what you can do with it. When you start, everything will feel diffrent. You won't be sure how to draw a straight line. Shading will become a mystery. Oh, but what fun you'll have!
Kako slikati sa šminkom?
Moj odgovor je da se jednostavno prepustite. Uzmite onoliko vremena koliko vam treba. Nema pravih i krivih odgovora jer možda ćete napraviti nešto što još nitko nije. Uzmite neki kozmetički proizvod i vidite što biste mogli sa njim. Imate svo vrijeme da to smislite. Kada počnete, sve će vam se činiti drukčijim. Neće biti sigurni kako povući ravno liniju. Sjenčanje će postati misterij. Ali kako ćete se samo zabaviti!
Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did. In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…
January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.
TRIPS & GETAWAYS
Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…
AMELIA WAS THE FIRST
CELEBRITY WHO LAUNCHED A FASHION LINE What is the link
between Amelia Earhart and fashion? Well, for one Amelia was known as one of
the best dressed ladies of her time. Amelia sewed her own dresses, and while it
was pretty common for women to sew their dresses back then, Amelia's dresses
got her a lot of compliments. Moreover, Earhart took it a step further by designing
a fashion line inspired by aviation. Amelia Earhart was the first celebrity to
launch a fashion line in her name. She also designed it herself, sketched the
designs with a seamstress working alongside her. Unlike many modern day celebrities
who just put their name on whatever, Amelia really put some thought into her
designs. Did you know that
Amelia was a fashion designer? Did you know she was quite fashionable and
praised by many for her feminine charm and elegance? Today we think of her as a
tomboy but I think there were many sides to her and that is what made her so
wonderful. Do you like avi…
