I would like everyone to meet someone, rather something, special to me: Lavender Shortbread, that's right LAVENDER. I discovered that two of some of my favourite things could be combined and create such goodness! It was very random how I came across this recipe, but man I was super excited.
It was also perfect timing because I was meeting up with some friends for some downtime, after a pretty rough night the night before! So I decided to bring a simple, yet delightful treat!!
Well this is pretty exciting! I thought I'd keep it short and simple, because there is nothing else to say, other than how superduperfabulous this shortbread was. I got the recipe from here
Hope you enjoyed it.

Hello! I know it's been more than two weeks since Halloween but I thought it was better late than never to post about my halloween look. I'm going to keep it short and simple today.
So this year I was the devil, not just any devil, I was trying to be the vintage devil. Unfortunately there are no full decent full body photos, but I was wearing a red skirt as a tube dress and wrapped with a black sash, so hence the vintage devil with the make up done accordingly. I was inspired by Dita's look, with the porcelain fair face and bright red lipstick. I'll break down what I wore that day:
(All MAC unless stated otherwise)
Face: C3 Face and Body Foundation mixed with Frozen White pigment (apparently it's what Dita does to achieve the fair skin look)
Cheeks: Taupe Powder blush for contour and Pink Swoon Sheertone Powderblush
Base - Painterly paint pot
Lid - Vanilla eye shadow
Crease - Patina eye shadow
Highlight - Vanilla eye shadow
Brows: Lingering brow pencil
Lash: Haute and Naughty
Upper lash line: Blacktrack fluid line
Lower lash line: Nothing.
Ruby Woo lipstick and Cherry lip pencil (filled in whole lip)
Dim lip erase in and around the lip and NC20 concealer around the lip to accentuate the red lips.
168 Contour angled brush
227 eye shadow brush
224 eye shadow blending brush
109 round contour brush (used for blush)
Since this is a pretty simple look I'm not going to elaborate on the look. I used very little on the eyes, but I do have to comment on the following.
Frozen white and face and body foundation...omg amazing! Face and Body foundation is just amazing! I don't know why I have waited this long to try it, and mixing it with pigments is golden! I used Frozen White, which is a white frost with blue duochrome. Believe me, it's sexy and mixing it with foundation will give you that really fair skin look without it looking like you obviously put on foundation that was three swatches lighter. It was subtle and glamourous! I would definitely try it with Vanilla pigment or Naked pigment if you want that glow! Well there is a nice tip for ya. If you have loose shadow and sheer, but buildable foundation, try and experiment and see how it turns out for you!
Till next time,
