For today’s make-up look I went with one my favorite make-up combinations again: soft smokey eyes in warm fleshy tones, paired with peach blush and a subtle nude lip. Take a look!
On my eyes I’m wearing all Makeup Geek. Using Cosmopolitan (eyelid), Frappa (outer eye corner + crease), Artemis (inner eye corner) and Aphrodite from the Makeup Geek Manny MUA Eyeshadow Palette I created a subtle smokey eye in warm peachy tones.
You’re probably getting sick of me constantly posting looks featuring my Coastal Scents Custom Eyeshadow Palette, but I just can’t help it. I love my Coastal Scents Hot Pots! That’s the beauty of putting together your own eyeshadow palette: every single shade you pick is a shade you’ll love and use and – in my case – throw at people’s faces every chance you get. Today’s look features shimmery golden brown and red on the eyes paired with a peachy nude on the lips. Take a look!
One of my favorite ways to add a little zing to a make-up look is by applying a bit of colorful eyeliner on my lower waterline. It’s amazing what a difference just a tiny touch of color can make! Hence why I have such an extensive collection of colorful eyeliners. But I happily made room for two more when the new Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil ($9) collection was launched. Take a look!

Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria
Plumeria is a stunning deep creamy red and is – together with Bourjois Pink About You and MAC Sourpuss – probably one of the most unique eyeliners in my collection. So beautiful!
I know some people prefer to steer clear of red(dish) eyeliners as they can make you look a bit teary eyed, but I just couldn’t resist Plumeria. It’s just such a stunning color!
The pencil glides smoothly across my waterline without tugging, evenly depositing color in the process. I do have to go back and forth a few times to get perfectly opaque coverage though, but that’s alright because the texture is really nice and creamy and gentle on the eyes. Plus as soon as the color is on it stays on pretty much all day long without fading or smudging, so I have nothing but praise for Plumeria.
Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Ocean
Ocean is a gorgeous bleuish green with a pretty pearly finish. I wear green and blue eyeliner a lot, so I figured why not add a nice little hybrid into the mix.
Ocean is equally intense, creamy and buildable as Plumeria but the color does seem to wear off a tiny bit quicker, especially in the outer and inner corner of my eyes, so a little mid-day touch-up isn’t an unnecessary luxury with this shade.
Ocean on the lower waterline (+ ColourPop Bae on the eyes)
The color itself is absolutely killer though, so I’m not complaining!
Do you often wear colorful eyeliner? What do you think of Plumeria and Ocean?
