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!

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.

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…
