I’m Singing the Blues, MAC Midnight Blues

The limited edition MAC fluidline in Midnight Blues is from their recent Mac Me Over collection. I really love the dark blue colour which also looks like it has some teal colour in it. It is a gel eyeliner and comes in a cute glass pot with a black lid. I’m a sucker for great packaging. Besides being an eyeliner, it can also be used as a base for blue eyeshadows. I’m also a sucker for multiuse products.


For me the best way to wear this is with a neutral eye (soft, warm brown or peach) for this liner to remain the star attraction of the look. And yes of course you must wing it!

It doesn’t take long to dry so I prefer these gel liners over the liquid ones and this formula stays put on the eye.
I got my Midnight Blues at West Mall here in Trinidad for TT$150 and it’s probably sold out by now. It's also sold out online but you can try Waveline which is a navy blue for US $15 at http://www.maccosmetics.com/
How would you wear blue eyeliner?

Coffee Date Night with Bae

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
