A Simple Pomegranate Punk Look

Want to know what to do with the Maybelline color tattoos? Use them as a base! So that once you apply a coordinating eye-shadow on top, it certainly pops. Join me if you want to recreate this simply yet sultry look using the Maybelline Pomegranate Punk color tattoo. 


Face Products:
Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer, to prep the face and minimise the appearance of pores
Chanel Perfection Lumiere in Beige, absolutely in love with this foundation since it gives a natural, dewy finish! It smells great too! Too bad it was only a sample L
MAC Melba Powder Blush, just a soft peachy, barely there blush to keep the focus on the eyes
ELF Natural Radiance Blusher in Glow, used as a highlight to complement Melba
Maybelline Fit Me Powder, for the finishing touch. It has a hint of shimmer for a natural glow. 



All about the Eyes:
Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow in Pomegranate Punk, as base for pigments Concept and Desire
NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Cashmere, as base for tear duct pigment, Sand Storm
Halener Rustique pigments in Sand Storm (Soft pink with blue reflects), Concept (burgundy), and Desire (dark red brown)
Coastal Scents Go Palette Cairo, matte brown for blending and matte light brown for highlight
Maybelline Illegal lengths mascara in Blackest black
Ruby Kisses liquid eyeliner in Shiny black
Jordana Easyliner for eyes in Smokey, for lower wateline
Kiss perfect brow pencil in Spiked


Lips, Sealed with a Kiss:
Kleancolor lip liner in Natural
NYX Megashine lip gloss in Natural

Do you want to turn up the volume on this look and take it up a notch? Well then switch out the natural lips for a red hot one! Just this simple change makes a big difference. 


Red lips:
Kleancolor lip liner in Hot Red
Revlon matte lipstick in In the Red
MAC Russian Red lipglass, add to bottom lips to create pouty lips
This makes the look perfect for a date night, think wine and roses

 
How would you wear Pomegranate Punk? Natural or Red lips?
Happy Pomegranate Punk!
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.
