Imperial Purple Eyes

Sleeked out again with another Sleek Dip It eyeliner. Yet again these liners are perfect for the holidays. The gold liner featured before in my Golden Holiday Line look was simple yet festive but this time it's the royal colours of purple and gold that makes this look imperial :)

This is the first time I'm using Barry M cosmetics and my first experience was amazing. The loose pigments are finely milled and apply like a regular eyeshadow. The golden colour is simply stunning and a little pigment produced such a dramatic effect for my look. I am really grateful to be introduced to this brand by the amazing Red Hot Love staff.


 
Get the Look!
1. Apply your favourite eye primer all over the lid up to the browbone
2. Apply the gold pigment from Barry M Cosmetics all over the eyelid area. Pat the colour on the lid over the primer to allow it to stay in place.
3. To make the gold colour pop, add a dark brown matte shade to the outer corner into the crease and blending into the gold slightly. I'm using one of the shades in Sacha Cosmetics 6 piece eye palette in Smokey Earth.
4. Next apply a matte lavender purple shade (MUA Matte eyeshadow in Shade 18) for some contrast to the gold in the inner corner blending into the gold and upwards meeting the matte brown.
5. Add a skintone shade to the highlight area. I used MUA matte eyeshadow in Shade 17
6. Apply some of the gold to the lower lash line blending into some of the matte brown.
7. Complete the look with gold to the lower waterline and your Sleek Makeup Dip it liner in Imperial Purple for the top lashline. Add mascara and you're done!


 
Happy Imperial Purple!!

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.
