Sacha Summer Sunset

It's summertime beautiful! Well it's been very hot over here in the Caribbean and one of my favorite things to do is to watch the gorgeous colours of the sunset especially if I am in Tobago on vacation. I am always inspired by the rich, vibrant sunset colours and today's look translates this into makeup. 



Local brand Sacha Cosmetics has been introducing more exotic creations to their makeup line and their Matte Me Fuchsia lipstick, Shameless Cinnamon Blush and 6 piece Smokey Purple eyeshadow kit were the three main elements for my sunset inspired look.

Get the Look: 
Face Preparation
  • Moisturise your face and then apply your primer of choice. I used Sacha's Mattifier.
  • Apply your foundation lightly for a natural look and for those pesky under eye circles, apply a peach toned concealer and set. My favourite combination of concealer and setting powder is NYX concealer in Glow and famous Ben Nye Banana powder 

The Eyes Have It:
  • Apply a deep purple base all over lid
  • Using Sacha 6 piece Smokey Purple eyeshadow kit, apply the deep reddish based purple all over base. 
  • Next, apply the deep blue shade to half the lid over purple
  • Blend the two together using the plum shade
  • Using a large fluffy blending brush, apply the hot pink over the purple bringing the color into the crease
  • Next, use an Orange toned color blush called Shameless Cinnamon to blend out the pink.
  • To complete the sunset, use a Golden highlight under the brow.
  • Line the under eye area with a purple liner from NYX Slide On called Pretty violet, set with the purple shadow.
  • Brighten up inner eye with the shimmery soft pink


  • Add Maybelline the Rocket volum' express mascara in Blacken brown to define and add volume to your lashes.
  • Complete the eyes with a gold eyeliner in the bottom waterline to open up the eyes from the dark colors. I'm using Revlon Luxurious color eyeliner in antique gold.

Lippie Love:
  • Sacha has a new line of lip colours called Matte Me Lipsticks. (Review coming soon!)
  • Here I'm completing my summer sunset with a pink called Matte Me Fuchsia.


Now add some beachy waves and you are off to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. I'll be on the seashore until the sunsets to watch those gorgeous colours :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!

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
