About the blog and the person behind the keyboard

My name is Tena, I am 23 and I have finally decided to do something that has been on my mind for quite some time.

My love for the makeup and fashion last since I was little. My mum was going crazy because I was so picky with clothes I wanted to wear, but mostly when I secretly borrowed her shoes ad high heels (until one time I fell down the stairs) and makeup. I don't even have to tell you how that looked like... Brown lipstick all over my lips and abound them like I was eating chocolate ice cream, pink and blue eyeshadow all over my face... At least everyone thought it was cure, and I was happy.

My first serious interest in makeup happened in middle school when I discovered mascara and black kohl pencil eyeliner (I wore that every single day) and later on lipsticks. I remember, I searched every drugstore in various cities there is to find one specific color of lipstick.
In high school i was going through a phase when I loved nail polishes. I had a new manicure every couple of days and was coming up with so many new ideas what to paint on my nails. To this day, I love nail polishes and I collect them, but now I mostly wear nude on my nails. That was the time when I switched from kohl liner to winged liquid eyeliner and my parents liked the "less black around my eyes" look. :)
In high school I also started practicing my makeup skills on other people. It was nothing special, a little bit of foundation, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick but I was so happy because I started doing something I really loved.

Since then, that love only grew more and more. When I started faculty, I came across beauty Youtube channels and started spending so much time watching how they put on makeup and trying to recreate their looks. Sometimes it was really bad, but sometimes I liked the way makeup turned out. I started to seriously collect makeup and got my first makeup brushes.

By trying out many products through the years, skincare and makeup, I found many good ones but also the bad ones, and the most important - I realized what is good for my skin.

I decided to start a beauty blog for my own joy and because it was a way to share my love for makeup with others like me. Also, there aren't many people around me that share my passion, so I don't have someone with whom I can talk about makeup who won't think I am boring and crazy. So this is the way I can share my thoughts, impressions and experience hoping they will find a fay to the ones that will read them and share theirs in comments. (And also this is the way I can justify all that makeup I buy :)).

Like I said, I wish this blog is the way to share thoughts and experiences. I am glad if I give someone advice of help someone to choose a product based on my personal experience and opinion.
I am not a professional by any means, didn't go to cosmetic school and I don't have any beauty courses finished. Everything I know I learned by myself thanks to my effort and interest so my reviews are based on my personal impression and experience of the product I am writing about.
Also, I would be glad if you would follow me on Facebook (link) and Instagram (link) and if you joined the discussion, commented and stated your opinions. Every comment and suggestion is welcome, and so is criticism, as long as they aren't written with the intention to insult someone. We are here to help each other out, hang out and share advice, not to spread neagtivity. After all, makeup should bring us happiness and joy. :)

 Ukratko o blogu i osobi iza tipkovnice :)


Zovem se Tena, imam 23 godine i napokon sam se odlučila upustiti u ono što mi se vrtilo po glavi već duže vrijeme.

Moja ljubav prema kozmetici i modi traje od kada sam bila mala. Mama je ludila jer sam bila jako izbirljiva što se tiče odjeće i uvijek sam sama sebi birala što ću obući, a najviše onda kada sam potajno uzimala njene štikle (dok jednom nisam pala niz stepenice) i šminku i šminkala se. Ne moram vam ni govoriti kako je to izgledalo... Smeđi ruž oko usana kao da sam jela sladoled od čokolade, rozo i plavo sjenilo svud po licu... Barem su svi mislili da je simpatično, dok sam ja sebi bila sva važna. 

Prvo pravo zanimanje za kozmetiku počelo je sredinom osnovne škole, kada sam najprije otkrila maskaru i crnu olovku za oči koju sam nosila svaki dan (to je ta faza :)), pa sve do ruževa. Sjećam se da sam zbog jedne nijanse ruža obilazila svaku trgovinu i nekoliko gradova dok nisam našla baš onakvu kakvu sam si zamislila. 
U srednjoj školi imala sam fazu kada sam obožavala lakove za nokte. Svakih par dana sam imala novu manikuru i izmišljala što novo mogu nacrtati na nokte. I danas ih volim i skupljam, ali danas najčešće nosim jednostavnije jednobojne manikure. Tada sam i s crne olovke oko očiju prešla na winged eyeliner, što su moji doma ipak bolje prihvatili nego crno-obrubljene oči :). U srednjoj školi sam krenula i s prvim šminkanjem drugih ljudi. Nije to bilo ništa posebno, malo pudera, maskare, tuša i ruža, ali bila sam sretna jer sam imala priliku raditi ono što me zanimalo.

Od tada, ta ljubav je sve više rasla. Kada sam krenula na fakultet, naišla sam na Youtube kanale cura koje šminkaju te sam često provodila previše vremena gledajući i pokušavajući rekreirati njihove lookove. Nekad manje, nekad više uspješno. 
Počela sam ozbiljnije skupljati šminku, dobila prve prave kistove i sa male torbice za šminku, prešla na pravi kozmetički kutak.

Isprobavajući kozmetičke proizvode kroz sve ove godine, kako dekorativne, tako i preparativne, pronašla sam mnogo dobrih, ali i loših proizvoda te ono najbitnije, shvatila što odgovara mojoj koži.
 
Odlučila sam pisati blog sebi za gušt i jer je to način da podijelim svoju ljubav prema kozmetici s ostalima koji vole iste stvari. Isto tako, u mom okruženju nema puno ljudi koji dijele moju strast, pa baš i nemam s kim pričati o kozmetici, a da nakon par minuta ne pomisle da sam dosadna ili da nisam normalna. Upravo zato na ovaj način pokušavam izbaciti sve ove svoje misli, doživljaje i iskustva u nadi da ću pronaći osobe koje će me htjeti čitati i komentirati sa mnom. (+ ovo je način na koji mogu opravdati kupovanje sve ove kozmetiku koju slažem na police i ladice :)). 

Željela bih da ovaj blog bude način razmjene iskustava i mišljenja. Drago mi je ako nekome mogu dati savjet ili pomoći pri kupnji i odabiru proizvoda na temelju vlastitog iskustva i mišljenja. Nisam profesionalka u ovome o čemu pišem, nisam išla u kozmetičku školu, nemam završen nikakav tečaj šminkanja i slično, sve što znam sam naučila sama zahvaljujući trudu i upornosti pa se stoga i moje recenzije odnose na vlastiti dojam i doživljaj proizvoda koje recenziram.

Također, bilo bi mi drago kada biste me pratili na Facebooku i Instagramu te kada biste se uključile u rasprave, komentirale i napisale mi svoja mišljenja. Prihvaćam sve prijedloge i komentare, pa tako i kritike, sve dok nisu napisane s namjerom da se nekoga vrijeđa. Tu smo da si međusobno pomognemo, družimo i dijelimo savjete, a ne da širimo negativnost. Na kraju krajeva, šminka bi nam trebala donositi zadovoljstvo. :)
