5 Must Have Make Up Geek Shadows

Friday, 20 May 2016

Make Up Geek are becoming increasingly popular and famous for their incredible eyeshadows. Their eyeshadows blend so well and the pigmentation is on another lever. Oh and they're also affordable at only £4.99 each. Make Up Geek are of course cruelty free as well so what's not to love?! 

 There are a lot of different shades to choose from so I thought I would narrow it down and share my 5 favourites! 


Mocha 

Mocha is a beautiful cool toned dark chocolate matte shade that works perfectly in the crease. You may be thinking that it's too dark for every day make up but it blends out so well that it can be used for any occasion. I would 100% recommend this to anyone! 



Creme Brulee 

Creme Brulee is of course a favourite with a lot of beauty gurus and thanks to Jaclyn Hill, it's very popular. If you don't already have this shade you definitely need it. It's the perfect transition shade and works so well when blending out darker colours. If you wanted a very subtle 'natural' make up look then this shade would also be perfect for adding subtle definition.


Bitten

Bitten has to be one of my all time favourite eyeshadows. It is a beautiful matte red wine/burgundy shade that again works in the crease or all over the lid. It's perfect if you want to add a hint of colour to your eyeshadow but want to keep it subtle at the same time. 


Roulette 

Roulette is another favourite of mine and looks amazing with Bitten. I absolutely love warm toned copper shades and this one is no exception. It is incredibly pigmented and has a buttery consistency that makes it very easy to blend out. The metallic finish really makes this eyeshadow pop, especially if you have blue eyes. 


Cosmopolitan 

Last but not least, Cosmopolitan is a warm toned rose gold shade with a shimmery/metallic finish. It's also featured in the Manny MUA palette so it must be good!! Again this shade is very pigmented and works really well over a darker shade. 

I have swatched each eyeshadow below and also have demonstrated what they look like on. I used Mocha and Bitten in the crease, and blended them together using Creme Brulee. I then put Roulette all over the lid with Cosmopolitan on top. I also put Bitten on the lower lash line.
