Makeup Geek Eyeshadow | My Ultimate Palette

Hi Beauties!

Makeup Geek is such a popular brand in the beauty community. These were some of the first eyeshadows I ever purchased when I started taking makeup seriously, and I have loved adding more to my collection ever since. However, I haven’t touched my Makeup Geek eyeshadows in a while, so I thought I would do a blog post dedicated to them in order to rekindle my love and hopefully give me some inspiration to create more looks using the eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek was founded by the amazing Marlena Stell after fans of her YouTube channel basically demanded that she started her own line. So in 2009, she did just that! Makeup Geek started with a bunch of eyeshadows and blushes but quickly expanded to include contouring, eyeliners, pigments, glitters, highlighters, brushes and much more!

Today we are going to focus on my own customised Makeup Geek ‘holy grail’ palette! This palette is made up of some of their signature eyeshadows with a couple of foiled shadows thrown in. I obviously love this palette to bits as I created it myself using the tones and colours that I find complement my eyes and skin tone really well.

Let’s get into some swatches!
