Okay, so Makeup Geek arriving on Beauty Bay was a bit exciting wasn't it! I spent ages looking up swatches and decided on a few matte shades and some of the foiled shadows, which I adore - I'll do a separate post all about them :)
One of my favourite looks at the minute is a rounded smoky eye with winged eyeliner, It's taken me so long to perfect the cat eye look but I think I'm almost there *squeals excitedly*. If you're a bit of a newbie like me, I can't recommend the Paul & Joe liquid eyeliner pen enough, it's absolutely foolproof. For those a bit more experienced, the Maybelline Master Precise liner is a great budget option - it's super black, just a little stiffer to work with if you're a beginner.
Remember my post on the Too Faced Glitter Glue eyeshadow primer? Well I'm even more in love with it now. Not only does it secure your pigments and glitters to the eyelid, it brings out the best in any pressed shimmer/glitter eyeshadow too. My favourite trick at the minute is to do my smoky eye (typically transition shade, crease shade, darker shade in the outer corner, light shimmer shade on the mobile lid), then once it's completed, tapping some of the Glitter Glue on the mobile lid and then using a fingertip to press a lighter shimmery shade on the top. It really makes the eyeshadow stand out and is a gorgeous contrast to the darker, smoky shades.
Ah, Chanel Mademoiselle. With mauve lip colours taking the beauty world by storm, I've fallen head over heels for this beautiful shade all over again. With less grey undertones than some of the current hyped hues, this cult classic is a sophisticated, suits-all choice for anyone wanting to try out this trend - and best of all, this luxe lip colour will always be in fashion.
What are your current beauty favourites?
