Thin Lips Reshaped and My Short Stint as a Face Model for Ephraim Hunt


Hello lovelies! My adventure with makeup continues on from the land of false lashes to reshaped lips. But let’s talk about my short stint as a face model for the talented Ephraim Hunt. So I first saw the ad for face models on their facebook page and didn’t at all expect for me to get chosen. Yippie! Basically it’s really easy; you just have to sit there and they make you pretty, well the makeup students in his class that is.
This week one of his topics was on lips and shaping so I got called in for him to work his magic on my thin lips. Faints! I was so distracted by him working on me that I didn’t get all the steps involved but these are what I remember he did.
-          Prep lips with vitamin e lip balm, loads of it to soften the lips
-          Highlight around lips
-          Line lips with lip liner, blend colour inwards
-          Fill in lips with lip colour using a lip brush
-          Highlight again
I’m sure I missed some crucial steps but anyway here is how they looked before and after. The only problem with my lips is that I have a prominent V in my cupid’s bow so trying to reshape outside of my natural lip line looks rather obvious. In my case, all I can do is bring the line as close to the edge of my lip shape. 
Would you believe I was nervous? I guess having a pro work on me can cause such an effect! But he was so kind and professional and he was a great teacher to his students, guiding them when they were doing their makeovers. After his class room session, they all have to do a complete makeover on the face models! This was my finished look, which was just a simple day time look. 
 Can you see my reshaped brows? They are still not perfect but way better than what they were before! In case you wondering, his studio is in Diego Martin, so that was like a 2 hour drive for me but totally worth it! Do you want to be a face model too? Well what are you waiting on! Go check out their facebook page now! 
Happy Face Modelling!

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.
