Makeup Geek Week - My All Time Favourites

Welcome Back Beauty Lovers!

Today I'm sharing with you my all time favourite +Makeup Geek eye shadows. This post was really hard for me because I only wanted to choose 12 shades - so they'd fit in my travel palette - and I love them all so much. I had them all lined up in colour order - obviously - and I went through each one, and finally I came to a decisive 12.

Before I share them with you here's a list of links to the other +Makeup Geek Week posts so far -

Top Row L-R | Bling | Shimma Shimma | Beaches & Cream | Gold Digger
Middle Row L-R | Cinderella | Unexpected | Bitten | Burlesque
Bottom Row L-R | Preppy | Home Coming | Envy | Mermaid
Above shades L-R as below

Bling - I love love LOVE this as an all over highlighter - it's a off white high impact shimmer shade with a hint of cream. Its also a cracking dupe for MAC Nylon.

Shimma Shimma - like I've mentioned previously this is the shade that got me hooked on +Makeup Geek, I love this for adding drama to the inner corners or patting over the centre of my lid to add a pop of shimmer.

Cinderella - this is my go to day time shade, if I'm nipping out for a few hours I apply this all over my lid and blend into the crease and I'm done - one eye shadow and one brush - easy peasy.

Beaches and Cream - if you watch any YouTube Guru you'll have heard Beaches and Cream mentioned a million and one times - it's the perfect blending shade and transition shade. It matches my fair complexion perfectly.

Gold Digger - I love this shade for adding drama and impact to an eye look, a dab on the inner corners makes a fun alternate to a subtle highlight. I love gold smoky eyes and this is the shade I reach for constantly.

Preppy - This is one of those shades where you think 'I wouldn't wear that' oh how wrong you are! This is a must for blending out deep, especially metallic, browns, it really adds impact to your look. You can use this lightly for a day time look or build colour slowly for a night time look.

Above shades L-R as below

Home Coming - I love to pair this with Preppy for a night time effortless blown out eye look. The high impact shimmer oozes glam and the orange tones make it perfect for green eyes.

Unexpected - this was an unexpected favourite of mine, see what I did there? I've been loving adding this to my crease to help blend out deep plum tones, and it works perfectly against my cool toned, fair complexion.

Bitten - I think everyone and their cat loves Bitten, it's such a vampy autumn/fall colour. Everyone has room in their makeup collection for Bitten its a staple, must have colour.

Burlesque - just because its fall and just because I love plummy, cranberry eyes. Burlesque is the deeper shimmery sister to Bitten and they work perfectly together.

Mermaid - This shade will always have a soft spot in my heart, this was in the first ever order I made from +Makeup Geek. I love wearing this in Summer under the lower lash line for a fun look, or mixing with a sealing gel to create a fun bright eyeliner.

Envy - I fell in love with this shade thanks to +Jaclyn Hill, she created an 'Envious Mermaid' look on her YouTube channel and I was in love...instantly. Its another deep vampy colour perfect for fall/autumn. It also makes a great alternative to black for adding drama and smoking eye shadows out.

Do you have any favourite shades? Let me know what you love and why you love it.
