Insomnia after a double espresso

I’ve been wearing this look a lot and even though I consider it a “subtle work look”, so no funny business with popping colours and glitter, I still like it enough to show it here.

I used MakeUp Geek pigments for most of the eyeshadow and because one of the pigments is duochrome, you still get your daily dose of colour with this combination.

Liquid Gold

I told you about the MakeUp Geek pigments I received and I was totally hyper about Liquid Gold, so in that week I made this look with it.

It became a pretty wearable look but with that stunning gold it’s like there’s sunshine coming from my eyelids. It looks almost greenish gold, like I said in the review. So I used this colour with Junebug from Sugarpill and New Years Eve from MakeUp Geek in the inner corner.

MakeUp Geek pigments: swatches, review, the works…

Some time ago I got an email from one of the people of MakeUp Geek, asking me if I wanted to try out their brand spankin’ new pigments. Needless to say I was so excited I found myself making all kinds of squeaky noises.

The package arrived very quick, I was counting on a couple of weeks before it would get delivered, because that’s what happened the last time. But I had it in my hands the end of the same week! *Squeee*

I made a lot of pictures. Not just of the swatches but also of the packaging, because a lot of people are curious about stuff like that too. Overseas shipping packages sometimes need a litle more care. As you can see the packaging from MakeUp Geek is really good. Not only are the pigments wrapped in bubble paper but the box is also filled with “popcorn”, to make sure everything arrives in a very good condition.

Make sure you got some time when you click this link because this post is really, really picture heavy…

Looking for gold in a wood of roses

I thought it was about time to start trying the makeup thing again. My eyes have been behaving very well with just eyeshadow (no base, so creasapalooza) and eyeliner and I really wanted to use my new Gosh Rosewood eyeshadow, I got it from Michelle in my Secret Twitter Santa package as one of the products she wasn’t using.
Rosewood is a beautiful brownish red colour and I wanted to combine it with more Gosh Effect Powders so I took Gold Dust and Plummy. It isn’t my favourite look in the world but I like it anyway. Gosh Effect Powders kick butt!
