Silver Smoke and White Ashes with Coastal Scents Go Cairo Palette

Hello Beautiful! Remember when I did my Last Night Look and used the Coastal Scent Go Cairo Palette, then challenged myself (and you!) to create a look with both silver and white? Well my part of that challenge is all done. This is another date night look for me. It’s sparkly and fun but still a classic smoky eye just using silver. 

In case you want to recreate this night look, this is how I did mine:
Step 1: Face routine with primer (Revlon Beyond Natural), foundation (Sacha second skin in Perfect Caramel) and powder. This foundation provides light to medium coverage but to make it stay in placed for the night, I sheered it out with some setting spray before stippling it onto the face with a sponge wedge.  

Step 2: Apply your eye primer; I used Ruby Kisses (the one that looks like a pink version of the urban decay primer potion)

Step 3: Using the Coastal Scents Go Cairo Palette, apply the silver shade (1) from the inner tear duct to about 2/3rds of the eyelid area. You can take the colour up a bit if you like. Use the silver also for 1/3rd of the lower lashline. Next apply a gunmetal grey (2) in the outer V area blending in to meet the silver colour. You can take this colour into the crease a little. Deepen the outer V using the matte black shade (3). Soften any harsh lines above using a matte skintone colour (4). Highlight the browbone using the matte white (5). 

Step 4: Finish off your eyes with some false lashes. Fill in brows with brown shades from the Go Cairo Palette.

Step 5: For blush, apply a rose or plummy shade. I used Black Opal Raspberry bronzer. Since it’s a night look, you can apply just a tad bit more than usual.

Step 6: Complete the lips with a rosey pink shade such as L.A.Girl crème lipstick in Rendezvous. Add a touch of clear lipgloss to the bottom lip for a luscious pout.
And since it’s a night look you can pair your silver eyes with some silver, big bold earrings and other accessories! That would make your look more for a night time party!
Happy Silver & White!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

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…
