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!

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.
