Makeup Geek eye shadows are some of my absolute favourites. They're beautifully pigmented and very well priced. As they're only availabel online however, it can be difficult to decide which shades to purchase. Instead you end up scouring the internet for swatches and trying to decipher which would suit you best. Today I thought I'd run through my most used shades. These are the shadows I'd recommend for anyone who's thinking about buying from Makeup Geek for the first time.
This unassuming light peachy tone is a perfect transition shade for my skin tone. It helps to blend all the other shadows together meaning you get a really flawless and diffused finish.
This burn yellow can be a bit disconcerting in the pan. Most people would probably be tempted to steer well clear from packing yellow on to their eyelids. It's actually very beautiful though adn great for subtly warming up an eye look.
Cocoa Bear is a classic warm matte brown that I tend to use most days. It's perfect for darkening up the crease and can be used with so many different looks.
In the Spotlight
I've never used a shimmer shadows as pigmented as the Makeup Geek foiled shadow. They're creamy texture makes them look almost like molten metal. One of the my favourites for every day is 'In the Spotlight'. It's a light rose gold colour that really makes your eyes pop when placed all over the lid.
Bitten is a beautiful deep red. It looks amazing on the outer corner when creating a warm look or even all over the lid for something more dramatic and smoky.
