Rainy Spring Greens

Hello Beautiful! Today's makeup look is inspired by the spring time with its flowers and bright luscious greens. I'm using the very pigmented and colourful Sleek Makeup I-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette as my main muse.  


The Eyes Have It!
1. Prime your eyes with a neutral base like Ruby Kisses eyeshadow magic primer. Allow to set a bit.
2. Using a flat shader brush, pat on a shimmery pink pigment like DaVinci Cosmetics Sheneine 089 all over the eyelid right up to the crease area. 


3. Using the dark green shade called Fern from the Sleek Makeup Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette and a small precise brush, apply the green using a cut crease technique concentrating the green towards the outer edge and fading the green as you go towards the tear duct area.
4. Next take a dark brown shade like Paper Bag and blend out the green moving upwards and concentrating the colour to the outer area of the eye fading inwards.
5. Use a skin tone shade like Dune blend out any harsh edges of Paper Bag.
6. Highlight the brow area using a lighter shade called Pillow Talk. 


7. Run NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Cucumber in the lower waterline and lower lash line area. Set the lower lash line with Fern.
8. Complete the eye look with a dark brown liquid liner. My favourite is Prestige liquid liner in Black/Brown. Add mascara and/or falsies. 
       


I kept the rest of the face pretty basic, just even out the skintone, a soft pink blush to add a touch of colour to the cheeks and a soft pink lipgloss to balance out the greens in the eye look.

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…
