Fairy Fantasy

Hello Bellezzas! I am excited to bring to you a whimsical look inspired by fairies and our recent Carnival season here in T&T. The look incorporates gems, extreme lashes and green lips! This is definitely a fun look even if not suited for everyday wear.


Get the look:
1. The skin was prepped using my Bare Minerals Ready Foundation in Warm Tan and Touch up Mineral Veil in Tinted.
2. The cheeks were bronzed using Black Opal Raspberry Bronzer.
3. The eyes were primed and then a light wash of gold add all over the lids. Apply a dark green in the crease to add depth. Both colours used from Loreal Hip Duo 828- Dynamic.
4.  Line the eyes with Nyx Cosmetics Slide on pencil in Sunrise Blue.
5. Apply some whimsical lashes, these are peacock lashes from Mina.
6. For the lips, apply a skintone lipgloss and then lighly tap on a green pigment such as Soft Touch Iguana Green all over the gloss.
7. Complete the look with a framing arch of gems.


To make the look more authentic, a touch of glitter was added via a glitter tattoo. You would need a stencil, glitter glue and glitter to complete the tattoo. The rest of the accessories like chain headpiece, leaf earrings and chunky handband seals the look.

A special thank you to Maria Dook Photography!

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…
