Holiday Glam Eye: Using Makeup Geek Products

Ever since I purchased the Makeup Geek Pigment in Utopia I have been OBSESSED! It is the most beautiful and unique pigment I have ever seen!!!



The Makeup Geek website describes it as: A mixture of deep brown and antique gold shimmer duochrome glitter.

Here is a great swatch from the Makeup Geek Website:



I love pairing it with the Makeup Geek Base in Rave which just makes this pigment that much more beautiful!!! 

My inspiration for this look was from a picture I saw on instagram from pinupbeautyx93. She used Utopia and Rave and I instantly went out and purchased it to recreate the look. I know she used a bit more warmer orange and reddish browns which I love but I switched it up a bit with a more mustardy-camel yellow instead :) 


 Below is a full list of the products used:

Friday Favorites & Fails: Coola, Laura Mercier, Marc Jacobs & MORE

Sorry for the lack of posts lately!!! I wanted to make sure I got a post in for today's video because I am loving some GREAT PRODUCTS!!!



First of all the Coola Sun Care Products are AMAZING! Not only are they a more oganic & natural sunscreen but they smell great and the don't leave a greasy residue on the skin!!

My favorites are the Coola Pina Colada Sun Screen & the Matte facial sunscreen! I love that the face sunscreens are MATTE!! They don't leave a greasy residue and work well with my normal skincare and makeup routine without feeling too heavy on my skin!!





Next are the Jurlique Products!!! The Rose Balancing Mist is so luxurious and pampering on my skin! I love the light mist it has (you aren't being assaulted by a crazy stream of liquid) also the eye cream provides the right amount of moisture to the under eyes without being too heavy or clogging pores! The serum makes my skin feel so soft and supple and keeps my skin feeling hydrated without providing too much added greasy-oily feel to my face!



Next is the Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation in 2.2! This foundation claims to everything you possibly could ask for in a foundation!!! Long-wearing, doesn't transfer, water & sweat resistant, hydrating, oil free, beautiful for photography!! AHHH It is seriously so so so amazing!!! Definiately HOLY GRAIL STATUS!!! I will have my first impressions and demo of it up soon!!!!


Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Liner in Blacquer! This is also AMAZING! Lasts in the waterline ALL DAY LONG!! It doesn't transfer into my inner corner of my eye, doesn't move down to my lash line, and is nice a black!!! I absolutely LOVE IT! You can get it at Sephora and its a bit pricey at $25 but worth every penny!!!!

The tutorial for the look in this video will be up on Oct 6th!!!
