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 :)

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…

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.
