Fresh Summer Eyeshadow Tutorial using Makeup Geek

Fresh Summer Eyeshadow Tutorial with Makeup Geek

Hey guys! I did this look for the first time a few weeks ago and decided it was time to get around to making a tutorial for this fresh, summery eyeshadow look! This tutorial is featuring Poppy, one of my all time favorite Makeup Geek shadows. Poppy is an awesome color in general but it’s especially striking on my fellow blue-eyed babes! 😉

Fresh Summer Eyeshadow Tutorial

I always start my eyeshadow routine by first using an oil blotting sheet on and around my lids to remove any excess oil that will mess up my eyeshadow over time, applying my favorite primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and then I dust a small amount of translucent powder over the primer.

Oh, and please try to excuse the pink in my lashes. The new Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme colors are no joke! I’ll be making a post on a couple of the new ABH Summer Collection items soon.

February & March Favorites!

I somehow ended up goofing around & missing the chance to do my monthly favorites for February so I decided to just make one video and compile my monthly favorites for both February and March! Also, I meant to include Maybelline’s Daringly Nude lipstick in this video, which happens to be this beautiful nude that I’m wearing here, but it ended up not making it in! Oops. Still, it’s a lovely, budget friendly nude lipstick that I absolutely love!

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette Review

Over the past couple of months I’ve discovered that budget-friendly beauty brand Wet n Wild has quite a few gems in their product line, including their MegaLast Lipsticks, which I absolutely love.

I’m a sucker and always have to run through the makeup aisles whenever I go to the store so I picked up the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette for about $5 recently during a late night grocery run. 😀

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette

OVERALL REVIEW: 8

Packaging: Clear plastic lid. Reasonably sturdy for the price and snaps securely. 7/10

Longevity: Slight creasing with some darker shades after a full day. 7/10

Application: Well pigmented and easy peasy to blend! 9/10

Texture: Very smooth and soft. 9/10

The Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette comes with 8 gorgeous shades that transfer well between day and night time looks. Every shade in this palette has a shimmery finish and while I can definitely appreciate some shimmer, I wish there was at least one matte shade to tone down the glow a little. Each shade in this palette is labeled as “browbone, crease, etc.” and while you can certainly put each shade wherever you wish, people who are new to makeup might appreciate having a clear direction mapped out!

Maybelline’s Creamy Matte Lipstick in Daringly Nude

Maybelline's Creamy Matte Lipstick in Daringly Nude

I’ve got to start this by saying I am beyond ecstatic about my recent purchase of Maybelline’s Daringly Nude! I have two other shades in the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick line, Divine Wine and Touch of Spice, and I really love the formula so when I found myself wandering through the makeup aisle at the grocery store the other day, I decided on a whim to bring Daringly Nude home with me and holy shit, that was a fantastic decision!

Maybelline's Creamy Matte Lipstick in Daringly Nude

I have a whole bunch of wonderful lipsticks that I love probably way too dearly but I don’t really have a go-to nude shade. Until now. Maybelline’s Creamy Matte lipstick in Daringly Nude is the nude that has been missing from my life. So neutral yet so beautiful and I just adore this on my skin tone. Basically it’s the nude lipstick of my dreams and you guys are probably going to be seeing this on my face all too often now. In this picture I’ve paired it with a little of MAC’s lip liner in Soar.

Recent Makeup Looks 3/1/2015

So clearly I’ve been slacking on keeping up with my 100 days of makeup posts! I’ve actually been slacking a little with doing makeup every single day but shhh! We don’t have to talk about that part. As as it turns out, it’s really hard to do something every single day but I want to kick myself in the butt and get back to the program! My husband started a new job recently which means we’ve been getting up much earlier which means I should have more hours in the day to beat this face from now on! 😛

Anyway, here is one big, gigantic post full of all of the makeup looks I’ve done since my last 100 days of makeup post!

Day 8

Using Sugarpill Poison Plum, Melt Cosmetic’s Dark Matter and the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette for this eye look! The rhinestones are just regular ole’ craft store gems glued on with eyelash glue. My lips are MAC lipliner in Stone topped with Sigma Beauty Lip Vex in All Heart, which is such a gorgeous chocolately color! Lashes are Red Cherry 74’s. I felt like I was ready for a performance with Cirque du Soleil! 😛

Day 9

Went for a pretty casual eye using Makeup Geek’s Vanilla Bean, Peach Smoothie, Frappe and Cocoa Bear + Urban Decay’s X and Red Cherry 83 lashes but I couldn’t resist using NYX’s High Voltage in Dirty Talk on my lips! Such an insanely gorgeous shade of brown.

Day 10

Can you guess who got a big package of Glitter Injections in the mail? This girl! First instinct was to top Limecrime’s Chinchilla lipstick with this gorgeous glitter.

Day 11

A pretty pinky look in anticipation of Valentine’s day! Used a concoction of shadows from Makeup Geek, Sugarpill, Urban Decay and Too Faced plus more glitter from Glitter Injections! Lashes again are Red Cherry 83’s.
