#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD πŸ’‹πŸ’„

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”.

#CAKE FOR DOGS – DOGGY CAKE GOOD ENOUGH FOR HUMANS

Good Friday Morning !

So on the 29th of July 2014 was my Neapolitan Mastiff Nina’s first birthday and I just had to organise her a cake and prezzies.

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS: CAKE

1 Large apple or two smaller ones
1,5 cups rice flour/gluten-free
1/4 cup corn flake crumbs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda

1/2 cup plain full cream yogurt
1/4 oil
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
3 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

INGREDIENTS: FROSTING

1 tub low-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons plain full cream yogurt
2-3 tablespoons rice flour/almond flour

METHOD: CAKE

Preheat oven to 200 deg C
Core apple then grate it, set aside.
Sieve the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients, add the cheese and apple.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Β Fold together and pour into prepared small cake tin or cupcake tin.
Bake for about 30 min until golden brown.

METHOD: FROSTING

Mix all the ingredients together until it’s a smooth consistency.
I added edible colour and glitter. (optional)
I used a zip lock bag to do the piping. Just spoon the frosting into the bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner and let the decorating begin.

So give it a try! Nina also received some gifts and of course shared her cake with Donatella! Let me know what you think and comment below! Also remember that a healthy dog diet should consist of good quality pellets with a higher percentage of protein. Cooking food or left overs is not good for your pet. Dogs can’t digest cooked bones, it’s not good for them. This cake is a treat that my dogs will be getting on their birthdays. Just as we have treats on special occasions. Some of us more than most. lol.

Remember that your pets should be treated with respect and love, but as the Dog whisperer puts it… remember that: first it’s an animal, then a species, then breed, then a pet.

Lots of Blessings

Muchluv, Sandylashxx

#RUBYWOO, HOW ARE YOU! πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’‹

Hey there gorgeous.

Recently I went to a dear friends wedding. So I thought I would show you show you how I did my makeup.

So many makeup artists say you should have one focal point on your face. And generally they’re right. But there is one look where you could pull off strong eyes and strong lips. And that’s when using Red lips.

This is how I do it…

20140702-074714-28034184.jpg

First, it’s all about contouring and highlighting and of course blending it all properly.

20140702-075019-28219342.jpg

Then I add a shimmery highlighting eyeshadow in the corner of my inner eyes and on the brow bone. After that I apply black eyeliner and set it with black eyeshadow on my lower lash line.

20140702-075404-28444417.jpg

I then added a darker shade of eyeshadow on my outer eyelid and blending it to the crease. Giving it a slightly smokey effect. After which I add eyeliner with a tapered brush and an eyeliner paint pot. Of course I shape my brows. Brows are the frame of the face, the face is the picture. So I always shape my brows. As thick, as thin as I want.

I then finished off with falsies and the famous Rubywoo MAC red lipstick!!!

20140710-072957-26997951.jpg

20140710-073416-27256503.jpg
In a nutshell, I used KRYOLAN foundations, INGLOT eyeshadows and of course Rubywoo lipstick.

I love wearing this look when going out. It’s strong, yet feminine. πŸ’‹

Have a fabYOUlous day!!!

MuchLuv, BeBlessed
