Tangerine Tango Look


Did I mention that the Pantone colour for this year is called Tangerine Tango? Well I pulled out all my orange colours, started to play around with them and this is what I came up with. 
Face:
Revlon Beyond Natural smoothing primer
Sacha cream to powder foundation in Perfect Caramel. Applied with foundation brush from Coastal scents 22 piece brush set
Coastal Scents concealer palette
L’Oreal Translucide loose powder in medium

Eyes:
Ambrosia Cosmetics Amplified by Arlene Villarule as eye primer. Apply lightly with fingers all over eyelid up to brow bone.
Ambrosia creative colour Serene Sunset (matte vivid orange). Applied over lid area and slight up into the crease.
Ambrosia creative colour Havana Cream (soft matte caramel brown). Used to blend out harsh edge of Serene sunset.
Ambrosia cosmetics lust dust Pulse (sparkly rich orange) Applied near tear duct area
Halener Rustique loose eye shadow in Antiqued (sparkly brownish orange) Applied under lower lash line
Milani Liquif’eye metallic eyeliner pencil in Black. Applied to tight line and waterline
MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara. One coat.
 
Rest of the look:
Milani Baked Blush Luminoso (shimmery peach). Applied to cheeks
Milani mineral blush Luminous (soft simmery peachy pink with gold). Applied to highlight nose.
Lip Shine by Sacha in Summer Blaze (soft, shimmery orange lip gloss)
 
What do you think of this Tangerine tango look? The eyes are bright but the overall look is soft enough for me to venture out with this. I’m still looking out for my bright orange lipstick.
Happy Tangerine Tango!

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.
