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.

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. 

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.
