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. 

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…
