Soft Blue Smoky Eyes by Krys


Before I got into doing makeup fully for myself I always had to rely on the skills of my family and friends. My good friend Krystal who I grew up with did this look for me to go to another good friend’s wedding. She is working towards being a true makeup artist and making a career out of makeup. I certainly don’t remember everything she used but her skills were amazing enough to totally transform me so much that I am literally glowing in these pictures.
So we trinis love to be matchy matchy, it’s just our thing right? She asked for the colour of my dress to ensure she had some eyeshadows to work with. All I needed to bring was my foundation. Using a damp beauty blender my Revlon Colorstay foundation in Toast was applied followed by Revlon powder in medium deep with a powder brush. Eyeshadows from Sacha trios were used and just some liquid eyeliner and mascara. Some light pink blush and the lips were filled in with Kleancolor waterproof  lipliner pencil in Natural with clear gloss on top to finish the look.
My vampire face!


So the moral of this story is that to know if you have some skills means you need to have a happy client in the end just like I was. She didn’t use any expensive brands just simple product and tools working her skills for this gorgeous look. Of course she did invest her time in practicing, watching youtube videos and some makeup courses to come to this point. I will be following in her footsteps soon hopefully.

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. 

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.
