Secret Garden

I finally have my hands on some Makeup Geek products after hearing so many great things about them for the past few years! I have a variety of pan, duochrome and foiled eyeshadows to play around with, along with a couple of blushes and a couple of contour powders. 

I'll be posting any look I use these products in over on the Makeup Geek Idea Gallery which is an amazing collection of photographs to give you some fast inspiration. 

Below are my Makeup Geek shadow choices for the day, I hope you like them as much as I do. The shadows are amazing to work with and I'm actually a little sad to be so behind on the bandwagon because I've missed out on some great products for a looong time. They're incredible!

Rio Carnival

Hi! In the run up to the start of this weeks Rio Olympics, I was asked by my favourite eyeliner and mascara brand Eyeko to put together a Rio carnival inspired look to feature on their page. 

I didn't hesitate to agree as I couldn't think of a better excuse to play around with some more colour and take advantage of my new stash of Eyeko products.

This is what I came up with, primarily inspired by the official 2016 Olympics logo. Hope you like it!
