Makeup Geek Eyeshadow | Foiled and Duochrome Shadows

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 palette! This palette is made up of some of their foiled shadows, with a couple of duo chrome shades thrown in.

Let’s get into some swatches!
