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!

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
