#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD 💋💄

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

The best part? He doesn’t do the whole less is more nonsense, but only because he knows how to apply the more! Fine line people, fine liquid line!

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!

#BEST COVERAGE – FOUNDATION

Let me tell you about a foundation I’ve recently fallen in love with…

I have used all sorts of foundations. My favorites are MAKEUP FOREVER, MAC, BB CREAMS and of course INGLOT. My sister recently showed me the KRYOLAN foundation. And all I can say is WOW. The coverage is super amazing and you don’t need a lot of it at all!

I think the best part of it is that it lasts forever. By that I mean the amount you get and how much you will actually use. It’s brilliant.

Here are pictures of my face. Half without any foundation and the other just covered with the foundation. No concealer was used.

After I finished applying the foundation, I then did my contouring and finished off with powder, after which I proceeded with my “face painting”.

#MY WEDDING DAY – service providers – THE WEDDING CAKE

Good morning dahling! 🌷

Hope you’ve been following the posts about my wedding and the service providers who made that day extra special.

Today’s post is all about the WEDDING CAKE! 🎂

I didn’t want a typical 5 tiered wedding cake layered in heavy fondant. One just never knows how dry those cakes are on the day. I just wanted seperate cakes with different flavors where every guest could slice what they wanted. So don’t expect to see a typical wedding cake!

20140603-052233-19353078.jpg

We found a patisserie in Johannesburg called THE PATISSERIE and immediately fell in love with it. This hidden treasure is very popular among those ‘in the know’ and I could see why! Helen the owner makes the most divine macaroons. The best I’ve ever had. After Nicholas and I had them, it didn’t take much to convince us that Helen at THE PATISSERIE would be making our wedding cakes.

We had a meeting and discussed flavors, and all the other details. Of course we ordered 200 macaroons too and they were placed with the desserts at the venue.

🍰RED VELVET

🍰VANILLA WITH A MARSHMALLOW 🍰FROSTING
🍰DECADENT CHOCOLATE
🍰BAKED CHEESECAKE
🍰CARROT CAKE

Personally I loved how different our wedding ‘cake’ was to any other wedding. And I can’t describe how delicious they were!!!

Thank you Helen from The Patisserie for making the cakes extra special with your elegant touch!
