Makeup Geek Week is officially over.  I thought I'd share with you all of the eye looks from the week.  I didn't do anything particularly fancy, all of it is wearable (for me).  There's a good mix of neutral and colourful looks, some with liner, some without.

All shadows are Makeup Geek.  Of course.

Keep reading for photos of each look with a description of the products used.

Monday

Brows are Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in Strike with Brow Cake in Thunder.  This is my most used brow combo.  I prepped my eye with Tarte Clean Slate primer.  I used Preppy in the crease and blended it out, as well as using is on my lower lash line.  I used a mixture of High Tea and Dirty Martini to deepen the crease.  I then applied the foiled shadow in Charmed to the inner corner.  The liner is MAC Acrylic Paint in Black Black, which I applied with a dried up Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.  Primark Flash Lash mascara.

I paired it with The Balm Cabana Boy blush and LA Splash Latte Confessions Lip Couture.

Tuesday

Brows are Monday's combo.  I used Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo.  I swiped Vanilla Bean all over.  Peach Smoothie and Creme Brulee went in the crease to blend out.  Cocoa Bear is in the outer third and underneath.  I mixed the pigment in Insomnia with Illamasqua Sealing Gel to make a liquid liner.  Primark False Lash mascara.

I paired it with MAC Stereo Rose blush and MUA highlighter in Iridescent Gold.  My lips were Dose of Colors Brick liquid lipstick.

Wednesday

Brows are Monday's combo.  I primed my eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  Vanilla Bean is on my brow bone.  I applied Shark Bait to both corners, above and below, and blended out.  I left the centre bare at this point.  I deepened those corners with Peacock.  I dabbed High Wire foiled shadow in the centre with my finger.  I used Illamasqua Precision Gel liner in Infinity in my waterline and to tightline.  The mascara is again Primark False Lash mascara and I used Eyelure Ka-Ching lashes.

I paired the look with Illamasqua Blusher in Hussy and Jeffree Star Cosmetics [714].

Thursday

Brows are Monday's combo, told you they were my favourite.  Not sure I primed with, I forgot to write it down, sorry.  And mascara, oops.  I used Urban Decay Gonzo pencil liner in my waterline which I blended out with Mermaid.  I applied Wisteria to the crease and blended it out with Cinderella.  I darkened the crease with Duchess.  Using my finger I applied Pegasus foiled shadow to the inner half which I blended in to Masquerade.  I added Whimsical to my inner corner.

I paired it with Max Factor blush in Seductive Pink.  My lips were Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick which I topped with OCC Stained Gloss in Hedonist.

Friday

Brows are something different!  I used Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown with Stila Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown.  I primed my eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  I applied Vanilla Bean all over.  Barcelona Beach is in the crease blended out and added underneath.  I added Taupe Notch to the outer half and then went in quite heavily with Drama Queen over the top.  The liner is again Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner which I totally didn't mean to wing out but it just happened.  The mascara is Benefit Roller Lash.

I paired it with Tarte Memorable blush and Phee's Makeup Tips Glow in Original.  On my lips I wore Dose of Colors Stone with a bit of OCC Lip Tar in Femme in the middle.

Saturday

Brows are the usual combo.  I primed with MAC Paints in Sublime Nature.  I applied Vanilla Bean all over.  Peach Smoothie and Chickadee are in the crease.  I applied Goddess all over the mobile lid, added Rapunzel to the inner third and Bada Bing to the outer third and underneath.  The mascara is the Primark one again.

I paired it with Jeffree Star Cosmetics I'm Nude which I topped with Anastasia Gloss in Dainty.  Not sure which blush, sorry.

Sunday

I didn't manage to get any photos of this look which showed how vibrant it actually was, gutted.  I primed my eyes with Milani Shadow Eyez in Almond Cream.  I applied Stealth to the crease and blended it out.  I dabbed on Pegasus foiled shadow to the inner half, Centre Stage to the outer half and then put Caitlin Rose on top of both of them to give them a purple duochrome look.  I added New Years Ever pigment to the inner corner with Illasmasqua Sealing Gel.

I paired it with Urban Decay blush in Quickie and Revolution lipstick in Streak.


So that is my week's worth of eye looks featuring just Makeup Geek eye shadows.  It wasn't a challenge at all, I could probably do at least a month of different looks with the shades I have.  I'd love to know what you favourite/s from the week were.  You can buy the shadows here.

In July I'll be using a different eye palette every single day (with probably a cheat day for IMATS).  You can follow this on my Instagram here.  

Thanks so much for reading!
