Learning Beauty Week 2- Practicing Makeup

I was excited to begin my next 2 sessions since here was my chance to see what I could do. Our tutor told us to go home and practice after week one and this was what I did. Actually I did a bit more in that I re-read my notes, reorganized my makeup and setup a station a home for my practice. It’s a good thing there are 4 other ladies at home to be my models. But of course I model for myself too!

For me the hardest part is doing the liquid eyeliner. I so need more practice here!
Session 3: This was my practice session where I got to makeover my beauty partner. I used similar colours like I used on myself above and it turned out pretty well. Too bad I don’t have pictures to show off my work L
Session 4: This was our time to do makeup on ourselves to showcase for our tutor. We were all given what colours to wear by her and we were to make it suitable for an evening out. So yes I was a bit nervous to work with blue eyeshadows since I am usually a neutral eye kinda girl but it turned out great! 

For the nighttime you want to go bold and bright as possible. With such strong colours you may want to skip the blush though. When I was done she showed me how to make the eyes pop with a bright colour underneath. Even though this is way too much makeup than I am used to, I really loved it.

Looking forward to week 3!

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
