Navy Blue Eye Revolution


I’m joining the revolution! Navy blue eyes are one of the latest trends around and I wanted to join in that trend. I made it into a smoky eye look which goes great for my Asian eyes but didn’t want it all dark so added a bright pop of turquoise blue to the lower lashline. 

Apparently I was becoming a makeup snob, only reaching for the higher end makeup in my stash. But this trend brought me back to ground level since strangely enough I didn’t have any navy blue shadows except for one by ELF.
Eyes
ELF Little Black Beauty Book Cool Collection (Main eye colour)
NYX Slim eye pencil in Electric blue (lower lashline)
Mermaid pigment from Halener Rustique (over electric blue)
MAC fluid line in Midnight blues (in waterline)
MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara
NYX eyeshadow on Taupe
I was trying on a new pink with gold shimmer lipstick from NYX but I think these eyes would also be great with a matte red lip.
Lips
NYX Round Lipstick in Indian Pink
LA Colours Clear Gloss
On another note my hair has been driving me nuts lately! Ahh. So what new trends have you been trying out lately? Would love to know.
Happy Navy Blue!

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.
