If you want some fantastic tutorials and fabulous looks, you have to visit Makeup Geek’s blog. Marlena is simply stunning, and her step by step instructions make achieving even the most complicated combinations pretty fool proof.
Like her high quality tutorials, her cosmetics line is full of gems. Makeup Geek eyeshadows are affordable (pans are $5.99, compacts are $7.99), and there are 56 gorgeous colors from which to choose.
The pans are big, the same size as MAC eyeshadows but so much cheaper. They fit into MAC palettes, although I love my Z Palettes (which you can also buy at Makeup Geek’s store).
The texture is flipping awesome. They are smooth and creamy, they go on like silk. And they are super highly pigmented, plus they blend like a dream. These eyeshadows last and last, even on my oily eyelids. I love, love, love these eyeshadows. Trust me, you want some of these, and there are so many great colors to collect.
Here are some of my favorite shades for a pretty autumn look.
Bling is a frosted slightly warm ivory.
This makes a gorgeous lid shade, especially for deep set eyes. It really makes your eyes POP, and the shimmer is beautiful and not too over the top.
Shimma Shimma is a metallic champagne.
Shimma Shimma leans brown, while Bling leans yellow. Shimma Shimma is also an excellent lid color, and I love it for the brow as well.
Glamorous is a shimmery bronze gold.
Oh my, it doesn’t get much more gorgeous than this one. It’s such an amazing color on, and it’s perfect for fall.
Twilight is a pale shimmery muted purple.
Jaw droppingly gorgeous. This is a wonderfully unique color that pairs with so many other shades – gold, green, brown…it really makes hazel eyes pop.
Bada Bing is a deep brown with flecks of gold.
As a big Sopranos fan, I absolutely love the name!! This is a stunningly pretty deep brown that is very versatile. It’s dark enough to work as an eyeliner, and it can be packed on for glamour or sheered out for a more subtle look.
Makeup Geek eyeshadows come in a variety of excellent colors, they have wonderful texture and tons of pigment. I highly recommend that you take a look for yourself, you won’t be disappointed in these awesome eyeshadows!! - Lisa
