Dancing the Samba

The Samba is a Brazilian dance that is lively and fun filled with rhythm dancing alongside Samba music. I'm in such a dancing mood with my new hair streaked with golden goodness and bright eye colours. 


My bright eye look takes on the concept of color blocking but with a slightly blended effect.


Get the Look:
The Eyes Have It :)
1. Apply a white primer all over your eyelid area blending with your fingertips upwards towards the browbone. 
2. Apply a soft lilac shade all over the lid. I used the lightest colour in the CaraMia GrapeVine trio.
3. Using a stiff blending brush, apply CaraMia Samba single eyeshadow into the crease above the lilac shade and blend softly towards the inner tear duct area stopping 3/4 way in.
4. Blend out this matte orange Samba with a sparkly orange shade from the CaraMia Safari trio. 
5. Use a matte skintone colour to blend out your sparkly orange and also use this as your highlight colour.  
6. Line your half top and bottom outer lashlines using a pencil liner such as NYX Slide on pencil in Sunrise Blue. 
7. Apply the blue shade in the CaraMia Ocean Green duo eyeshadow directly over your blue pencil liner. 
8. Add mascara and complete your eyes with a pairs of falsies. I'm using Eylure Naturalites.   



I completed the face using my CaraMia foundation routine, blush in Apricot and lipstick In The Nude :)
Run your hands through your hair and let's go do the samba!

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…
