Makeup Of The Day

  • On my face I have on L’Oreal True Match LUMI foundation in the color Soft Ivory (applied with a damp Beauty Blender).
  • Under eye concealer is NYX HD Concealer in the color Porcelain and is set with NYX HD Studio Finishing Powder.
  • To contour I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, using the shade Fawn. I applied this with my Luxie 504 Large Angled Brush.
  • To highlight my cheekbones I used Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Powder with a Sigma F65 Brush
  • On my eyes I used Makeup Geeks Latte, Cocoa Bear and Bitten. I also used MAC’s Embark shadow to deepen up my crease as well as Colour Pop‘s I Heart This shadow on my lid.
  • To do my eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Palette in the shade Medium Brown.

To create this look:

I took Makeup Geek Latte on my Makeup Geek Soft Dome Brush and blended that above my crease as a transition color.

I then took MAC’s Yogurt and applied that in my crease and all over my lid with my Morphe M330 Brush.

I blended out MAC’s Blackberry from the outer corner throughout my crease and into my inner corner with my Makeup Geek Pointed Crease Brush.

I used that same Morphe M330 brush with no extra product on it, and blended that Blackberry color out so I had no harsh lines.

Next I took NYX Pigment in Pearl on my finger and applied that onto the center of my lid making sure not to get it in my crease.

I of course then applied my Wet N’ Wild Mega Liner and NYX liner in White on my water line. I followed that up with Maybeline’s the Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara.

It was a lot of fun creating this wearable look that can work on so many different skin types and eye colors. I hope you enjoyed :)

Makeup Geek Review

Makeup Geek

Let’s talk about Makeup Geek Cosmetics! I’m sure if you like to watch Youtube videos, you’ve definitely heard of or came across this brand.

It was started by a girl on Youtube named Marlena. I actually found out about Makeup Geek through a Youtube video that I came across. I then looked up reviews and tutorials with the Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and I figured I would give them a try. Boy am I glad I did ! These shadows are amazing. Not only are they such a good price, but they are such good quality too! AH!

Each shadow is $5.99! Yes, you read that correctly, $5.99!!! WOW. That’s honestly all I can say. SO AMAZING.

As I already mentioned (more than once), the price is the first thing that makes these shadows so great. If you do the math and say you want maybe 5 different shadows, you’re only going to be spending about $30 ($29.95 to be exact)! Now compared to a lot of other brands, you can expect to spend anywhere from $8-$10 on just one shadow. You can get a lot more for your money by buying these.

Now being that these are such a good price, you would think maybe the quality is a bit ehh, right? Well that is certainly NOT the case here. The staying power is incredible and I have yet to do a look where they smudged or even moved at all. They are applied so easily and are very smooth to blend. You can easily layer colors and build to get a darker color payoff. They go where you want them to go. The fallout is slim to none and they are true to their color. Meaning the color it looks, is the color it is.

In my first order, I got the Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pans. Because I already have a Mac palette, I was able to add magents and put these in too. I ordered 5 shadows actually. I loved them so much that I went back and ordered more as well. 3 more to be exact. All the colors that I have from Makeup Geek are:

Prom Night- listed on the Makeup Geek website as “A pale purple with hints of grey and a shimmery finish”

Corrupt- “Intense matte black with a very subtle sparkle”

Cinderella- “Pale shimmery pink”

Shimma Shimma- “Metallic Champagne”

Moondust- “Metallic silver taupe”

Vanilla Bean- “Light Shimmer with Peachy Beige Undertone”

Stealth- “Matte True Gray”

White Lies- “Matte True White”

The reason i’m not giving my own descriptions of the color is because the descriptions they give on the website are SO accurate. I really can’t say anything more about them! I love each and every shadow that I have.

My Makeup Geek eyeshadows are the ones to the right of the palette. The other four are some of my Mac shadows.

I have not ventured out and gotten any other makeup products that are Makeup Geek, but I have tried two of their brushes:

Pointed Crease Brush- Perfect for appliying color in your crease while  blending it out at the same time of application.

Bent Liner Brush-  It’s an AMAZING brush if you want to get a precise line on your upper lid. Perfect for any type of winged liner, and I find it so easy to use and hold.

Overall, I have loved everything that I have purchased from Makeup Geek and I highly recommend everyone checking them out! I promise you’ll love them just as much as I do! :)

With love and glitter, Kristi
