It seemed that he had an admirer.

Ignis struggled to pay no mind to the elder Nox Fleuret, but he still smiled as he pressed the dough into the muffin tin. It was a slow day, and he had been afforded the time to try his hand at Noctis’s favorite pastries again. Hopefully this attempt would prove more fruitful.

Ravus was welcome to watch if he liked.

It was a tedious process, but Ignis enjoyed the challenge. One day, he would perfect it.

He pricked the bottoms of each of the uncooked tarts to avoid collecting steam. Ravus came into the kitchen for something to drink and lingered at the fridge. For a moment, Ignis thought he might say something, but then he merely closed the fridge and left.

He spooned the berry compote into the pastry. Ravus came into the kitchen to throw away something and dallied in leaving. Ignis was about to speak when he finally strode away, going back to the couch to sit down.

He tasted the custard and decided it needed more sugar. Probably, it wasn’t the custard at all that was causing Noctis’s constant strings of ‘no’s’, but he had tried every fruit he had come upon so far in the compote, so he had few options on what to try next.

“Those are from Tenebrae.”

Despite himself, Ignis startled slightly at Ravus’s voice. He had been so focused he hadn’t noticed him come back into the kitchen this time. “Indeed. I’ve been trying to recreate them for Noct since his stay with your family, but I’ve yet to master the recipe.”

REVIEW: Grav3yardgirl Swamp Queen Palette by Tarte 

Hello, everyone! I shall be doing a review over this beautiful yet simple palette by Tarte Cosmetics. It was part of a limited edition collaboration collection with one of my all time favorite youtubers, Bunny Meyer or Grav3yardgirl. I purchased this a while back when it first launched on Ulta’s site. Although I’m sure the limited edition lippies from this collection are absolutely gone, there are still palettes available for purchase if you’re interested!  Fair warning, this is going to be a pretty long and picture heavy review! <3

A/N: It’s here. Yay. Just as a heads up, in a week, I’m going on a little five day vacation for my birthday, so I’ll be out of commission, hopefully I can get some stuff ready to post when I’m out. The same thing goes for the 23-28, I’ll be in Brooklyn (smol smol steve’s home town) and doing cool things there. That’s all I have to blabber about today.

Request: (requested by @avengers269) Can you do a Tony stark x reader where the reader is short so tony tease her alot to point when she cries then a fluff ending (pssst…these are my prompt lists: 1 , 2 )

Warnings: A handful of teasing (not in a sexual way…pervs…), crying(? is that really a warning)

Words: 1032

Sorry dictionary, but the term “baking” has a new definition. What we normally associate with sticking a combination of eggs, sugar, and flour in the oven has now become a new beauty trend fresh off Instagram. While it originated as a theater technique to flatter complexions under hot spotlights, it was later adopted by the drag set to create a feminine face shape and make concealer last longer where it matters most. Now, baking is finally getting the attention it deserves, all thanks to celebrity makeup artists and selfie queens singing its praises. We’ve created a step-by-step tutorial that makes baking a piece of cake—plus a visual guide courtesy of Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty. But first, it’s important to see whether baking is right for you. The overall result gives a full-coverage, matte finish—so if you’re a dewy loyalist, you might want to steer clear of the bakery. Normally, the technique is better suited for a photo studio than the street, but our guide is perfect for an everyday baked look that’s totally wearable. Let’s get started! JESSICA VELEZ

STEP ONE: With your foundation and contouring already completed, apply a concealer with a sheer-to-medium level of coverage to your Triangle of Light (a V-shaped area created from the inner corner of your eye to your nostril, and from your nostril to the other corner of your eye). tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage are great options because they’re both emollient. Then, blend the concealer using a beautyblender.

STEP TWO: Apply a loose setting powder—NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder would be perfect—to the same area you applied the concealer using a fluffy brush such as the SEPHORA COLLECTION hakuho-do + Sephora PRO Large Teardrop Pointed Powder Brush (Otsubu), and let it sit on your skin for one to three minutes. While the shade of NARS’s powder is nearly universal, deeper skin tones could switch it up with a banana-hued powder, while fairer skin tones would benefit from a powder with pink or peach undertones. For medium skin tones, stick with a translucent powder.

STEP THREE: Using the same brush as in STEP TWO, dust away the remaining setting powder that wasn’t absorbed into the skin using a light, flicking motion. OPTIONAL: for more coverage, first dip your brush into a medium-to-full coverage complexion powder, such as Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation, and then dust off the setting powder with the dipped brush. This creates an exchange and buildup of product.

STEP FOUR: Finish with a setting spray, like Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

NOTE: To remove this buildup of product at the end of the day, we recommend a two-step cleansing routine. First, start with an oil or a balm. boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil and Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm work wonders. Then, follow up with your favorite everyday cleanser.
