Summery neutrals with some sparkle!

I really wanted to use Makeup Geek's "New Year's Eve" pigment in a look.  I was trying to figure out how and I thought it would look really great in the center of your lid.  So I went with that feeling and did this look with that as my inspiration.

I recently reviewed the Makeup Geek pigments but if you missed it, here's what New Year's Eve looks like:

The left is a dry swatch and the right is a wet swatch
It's a beautiful light gold glittery color.

And here is the look I came up with!  I tried to create depth within my bone structure.

I really need to take glitter photography lessons.  This was the best I could get it to show up on camera and in person, I have glitter everywhere haha.

And here's a "paint by number" type diagram to show you color placement:

Color codes
(all colors by Makeup Geek)
1- "New Year's Eve" pigment
2- "Glamorous" shadow
3- "Frappe" shadow
4- "Brown Sugar" shadow
5- "Cocoa Bear" shadow
6- "Beaches and Cream" shadow

I used Milani Liquid Eye Eyeliner in "Black", which I set with Makeup Geek shadow in "Corrupt."  My mascara is Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara in "Extreme Black."  On my lips, I have a new (well, new to me) lipstick.  It's Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate in 101.  It's a super pretty natural pink color.  I topped that with MAC "Right Image" Cremesheen Glass.

I hope you like this look!  It's so easy to wear and the golds and bronze colors are great for summer (plus, if you have blue eyes, it really makes them stand out!!)!  I hope you all are having a great week and I hope you do something fun this weekend!!


  1. Love it and so happy that you put in a How-to diagram. I am going to give this a whirl!

  2. love this so stunning, your quality is spectacular.

  3. OMG this look is PERFECTION! I absolutely love it and it suits you so nicely! I am dyingggg to use up some of my MAC eyeshadows so I can get MUG replacements haha!

  4. So pretty! That orangy color really makes your eyes pop


  5. Nice job (as usual). The depth is wonderful, and the colors all blended together so well they might as well be tied with a bow (sorry for the silliness, it's midnight, haha!) This is so beautiful!
