Anyhow, I'm really enjoying my Makeup Geek eyeshadows. So much so that I ordered a bunch more. A bunch. Yeah. (I believe they are going to arrive tomorrow.) I, of course, had to do a smoky eye with the dark blue shade called "Center Stage," which is one of the foiled eyeshadows offered by Makeup Geek.
The foiled eyeshadow are described as having "intense pigmentation & an opaque, foiled finish in just one swipe." Foiled meaning super shimmery and almost metallic.
I think the closeup eye photos show the shimmeriness (not a word, I know, but I think it gets the point across) better.
Pretty intense, right?
I did have to use a couple of Elizabeth Arden shadows as blending shadows, because I don't (yet) have any Makeup Geek eyeshadows light enough for under the brow.
