My Favourite Dessert Recipe: Lemon Pie

As I have already told you, this year I am, for some reason, excited about the VDay (it is never the case). I think it’s because Makeup4all turns 5, and I’d like to celebrate!

So I thought I’d share one of my favourite recipes with you.  I get that for such an occasion (yeah, talking about VDay, hearts and roses here) people would expect brownies/macaroons/cupcakes.  But why not surprising them with something different? I personally am not a  big fan of sweets, desserts, cakes etc, as shocking as that may sound. But this lemon pie… I could almost kill for it!

Big thanks to my friend Lindsay, who is a cooking goddess, and who gave me this recipe, among many others.

The month of Fashion Weeks has started and I usually post some of the beauty looks here, so stay tuned to find out the upcoming trends for SS14.

And today I want to share the look that was created by one of my favourite beauty brands – Hourglass Cosmetics by makeup artist Polly Osmond for Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection.

I always love reading about the inspiration behind the collection and  the makeup, so here it is:

Siriano was inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette. The new collection features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues. “I wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic,” says Siriano. “Like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.”

 What Osmond says about the look: “It’s beachy, breezy and with a pop of color on the lips.  I wanted to create a diffusion of texture, color and light. It’s how your skin would look at a tropical sunset. We used the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to create a breathtaking glow—not just on the cheeks but on the eyes, too.”
