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!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

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.
