This little Zpalette contains my favourite and most used Makeup Geek neutral picks. It took a alot of planning and thinking to make this palette and I have to say I am quite proud of it πŸ™‚

Makeup Geek IrelandIf you’ve followed me for a while, you know I am a huge Makeup Geek eyeshadow fan. I am huge fan full stop but my stash contains alot of Marlena’s eyeshadows. In fact as I am writing this it’s making me want to make another order, so I may have more before this post is through πŸ™‚

So what Makeup Geek neutral eyeshadows does my favourite little Zpalette contain? I think there’s a good mix of light, dark,shimmer and matte in these choices. I would happily just bring this palette away with me and be able to create a multitude of looks.

There’s ‘Vanilla Bean’

‘Peach Smoothie’

‘Latte’

‘Brown Sugar’

‘Cocoa Bear’

irish makeup and beauty blogmakeup geek neutral eyeshadowThis is a Makeup Geek Eyeshadow everyone needs in their lives. It is the ultimate warm brown shade. I love layering this on top of Latte in the crease when building up colour intensity. I am really fair skinned though, if you have warmer skin, this is the perfect crease colour. I love using it to smoke out under the lash line too.

‘Bada Bing’

It’s great for darkening up the outer edge of the eyes to smoke things up, or across the top lash line or even all over the lid. The choice is yours πŸ™‚

‘Spotlight’

irish beauty bloggerirish makeup bloggerThis is a Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow. It’s shiny, it’s shimmery and it’s peachy perfection in my opinion πŸ™‚ I love wearing this all over the lid, as an inner corner highlight and even layering it on top of eyeshadows to add an extra something. The foiled shadows are even more shiny and pigmented if you use them with a wet brush…I need more!

‘Bling’

The last of my 9 neutral Makeup Geek shadow faves is:

‘Cosmopolitan’

irish blog irelandirish beauty blog makeup geekEveryone needs a shimmery copper eyeshadow in their lives I think. It’s the type of shade that looks gorgeous on every eye colour. A wash of this over the eyes and you’re good to go.

So there you have it my prized favourite Makeup Geek neutral shadows. Have you any? What’s your favourite Makeup Geek product? I need to be enabled πŸ™‚ You can buy directly from the Makeup Geek website here (although customs are an issue so be careful with how much you spend). Beauty Bay also sell Makeup Geek here, they are a little more expensive though.

Thanks for stopping by.

For black Friday Beauty Bay were doing 10% off Makeup Geek. Since the exchange is so bad here, this made the price of the shadows a little bit more bearable. And so I bought a few new friends to add to my collection πŸ™‚

I did a look with some of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I already own here not too long ago if you fancy having a look at some more.

I was quite restrained and only bought four new ones. Also Beauty Bay keeps selling out so quickly, so you can’t be too fussy when it comes to choosing.

My first purchase was a rather boring but still lovely brown.

This is one of the Makeup Geek standard eyeshadows in ‘Brown Sugar’.

It’s a lovely warm brown colour and thought it would fit in nicely with my other brown Makeup Geek browns :p

This shimmery little number is also one of their standards in the shade ‘Cosmopolitan’.

I went online and saw swatches of this and thought it looked really interesting, so into the basket it went. It’s a lovely shimmery light bronze colour and super pigmented.

I popped two Makeup Geek cherries in this Beauty Bay order.

One was to buy one of their duochrome eyeshadows. This is in the shade ‘Typhoon’.

I love a green shadow I have to admit. This is kind of a blue toned one. I don’t have anything like this in my collection.

The other cherry was to own one their foiled eyeshadows. This is in the colour ‘In The Spotlight’. I am very pleased to get my mitts on this.

I think this is my favourite of my four new friends. It’s foiled so its super shiny. It applied much better with your finger, you just get a light wash of shimmer if applied with a brush. I am in love with it πŸ™‚

I’ve mentioned a million times how big a fan I am of Makeup Geek so I am pretty pleased with my new additions and can’t wait to play with them properly.

Have you any Makeup Geek recommendations? I’m always in the market for more πŸ™‚

Thanks,
