Recent Makeupgeek order

Ever since getting all of these MUG shadows I have needed a Z palette because it gets so damn frustrating opening the little packets each time haha. YAY that's taken care of. I also wanted to try one lipstick & one more eyeshadow.. for now... (Disclaimer: paid for everything with my own monies, not sent for reviewing)

As always great customer service, still the average ~2 weeks for it to arrive to me though, but that happens when you're on the other side of the world.

 My newly filled Z palette, & the lipstick in the box it comes in. What else can you spy in this picture?

Barbie Girl Makeup!

I wasn't sure what makeup I wanted to do on the weekend for a "Barbie & Ken" themed party, but I remembered an older makeup look where someone said I probably looked like a barbie haha so I pretty much just copied that, so they are very similar. I did like the shape of this one a lot more, though. 
I also did my friends makeup for that night :)

Deep Sea Mermaid

Hey guys! This is just a look from last week where I used darker blues & greens. I have wanted to do this combo for a little while with my makeup geek eye shadows and it came out a little "deep sea mermaid"-y to me, haha. And it's nice & smoky for those rainy days.

Birthday Makeup! Mod Cat Eye Look.

Go Charlotte, It's your birthday! Yes, I finally turned the big 21. (that's what I said about my 18th, feels like yesterday but its already flown by).
I had some friends around for drinks on Saturday night  and on the night of my birthday (Tuesday) we went out for dinner with the family. I suppose nothing else has changed except now I am actually classed as an adult (How scary!! :P) since I've been able to legally drink & go to clubs since I was 18. But now I can go to the US and do it all as well!
To the makeup.... even though the drinks was pretty casual I wanted to go all glam with the makeup. As you do ;). I thought I would stuff it up but I didn't, woohoo!

Glamorous Purple & Gold

 I did this makeup for a friends party 2 weeks ago and I just wanted something glamorous (the theme was beauty & the geek so you know what I went as ;)) & lately I've been obsessed with highlighting the middle of the lid, I'm sure you'll see in many upcoming posts!
 When I first saw the inspiration pic (I will post it down below) I knew exactly which main eye shadows I wanted to use which is why I really wanted to do it hehe.
So without further adieu..

Burnt Sunset Step by Step with Makeup Geek

So originally this was meant to be a bright, cheerful sunset... then I added too much of a colour, thought I had ruined it, but it actually turned out ok... does this happen to anyone else?? lol. But I went ahead with a step by step anyway just for the sake of it. If I left out the black to begin with it would have probably turned out a whole lot brighter.
I used all Makeup Geek eye is the review & swatches for them!
Read on if you want to see how I did this. Also another pic heavy warning!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches + Review!

 So a few weeks ago I was contacted by someone from Makeup Geek (MUG) asking if I wanted to try some eye shadows for a review. Of course I said yes!! I had already bought 3 eye shadows myself and was planning to buy more soon anyway.
Let me start with the service.... Shipping was fast and they were quick to reply. Although there was a mishap with shipping; they accidentally sent me 6 of the wrong colours, so I messaged them to let them know & they said I could keep them as it wasn't my mistake. I would have felt happy to return them though especially if it was somebody's order!
 Please read on for the review & swatches.

Disclaimer: I did not pay for these eyeshadows (except for the 3 mentioned) and all thoughts & opinions are 100% my own. I want to apologize with the inconsistency with the lighting in the photos! Some of the lighting has been enhanced but the colours have not.

Shimmermint Eyes + Nyx Stick Blush Review

Muted greens are oh-so pretty for spring. Although it's past that now, especially that I'm in winter. I suppose that's where the grays come in handy, haha. I don't believe in restricting certain looks for certain times of the year, especially mostly everything is opposite to me and I get inspired by summer looks when it's winter, mmkay!! :P
Saturation enhanced to show the colours better.

6 Different ways to curl your hair

I just came across this video and wanted to share- It's so cool that you can get so many different types of curls with the same tool! Also I think the guy is pretty funny, hehe.
What's your fave way to curl your hair, and what do you like to use?

Red Lips for MS Day

 Last week in a magazine I saw an add that said to wear red lipstick for MS (Multiple sclerosis) so I had a reason to wear red lips at work(although I wear them when I feel like it), & nobody knew that was why. I teamed it with neutral eyes using Makeup Geek eye shadows. Hope you like!

Exotic Fish Makeup Look

 I was inspired by one of the girls on a makeup board, whose makeup reminded me of an exotic fish, hence the title lol, so I took those colours and had a play. I did this 2 times, one was a play around that took me 5 minutes on a Sunday night and the other was a more wearable version.

 This was the play around one, as you can see it's not perfect, especially the lower lash line. I do love the brows though and intend to wear them coloured out one time haha.
