Last Night!

Hello beautiful! So since I was wearing a lot of bright eye colours lately I thought I would throw in a more neutral eye (wink wink) for you and pair it with a bright lip instead. When you feel like going out at night, you still want to feel beautiful and this is a quick and easy way to add some drama to the night! 
In case you wondering, my T-shirt says : Go Plant a Tree”

The eyes were created with colours only from the Coastal Scent Go Cairo Palette. This palette has been a staple in my daily makeup routine. It combines both matte and sparkly neutral shades with some pops of glamour. If you want to see my full review of the palette check here

Colour 1: Apply this bright sparkly gold colour all over the lid.
Colour 2: Blend sparkly bronze shade into the crease and into out ‘V’
Colour 3: Darken the outer ‘V’ area with this matte dark brown. Also add to outer half of lower lashline.
Colour 4: Use this matte light brown to soften crease above colour 2 and upwards for highlight.
Colour 5: Finish next half of the lower lash line with this sparkly soft highlight colour. You can even bright this colour up a little and onto colour 1 to brighten up the eye.
Colour 6: Add this matte black with the matte dark brown (colour 3) to fill in brows.
The eyes are completed with a small cat eye created with Revlon’s Colorstay crème gel eyeliner in black, Milani Liquif’eye in Black for the waterline & tightline, Mac False lashes extreme black mascara and Red Cherry #46 lashes. Just a sheer foundation (Sacha’s Second skin foundation) and blush (NYX Espresso) to finish off the face until I added the show stopper for the lips, L.A.Girl creme lipstick in Last Night. 
 
As you can see I haven’t used the white and silver in this palette much so I’m challenging myself & you to go use both white and silver into another night look! Do you dare? I would love to see yours!
Happy Last Night!
XOXO

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.
