    My apologies for the pictures, my digital camera decided to not work and so I was reduced to my webcam to snap pics . But I have to say that I’m absolutely in love with the Makeup Geek eyeshadows, the quality and consistency has always been the same and they are my fav eyeshadows! It was easy to create looks with limited colors because of their pigmentation and blendability. Thank you so much and keep doing what your doing :)

    Alright. So i definitely need a new camera and hopefully i will get one soon! (graduation present!! lol) but right now the Iphone is the only camera i have to work with … I wish i had more time to do a natural glam look but with finals week i had absolutely none!=( but anyway! this is what i came up with=)

    With corrupt mainly on the lid along with a little bit shimma shimma in the middle, inner corner, and brow bone this is what you may see here in this “not so sharp” image.

    Cocoa bear is in the crease and and on my lower lash line along with corrupt of course… I threw some individual lashes on and mascara and thats pretty much it for the eyes..


    I did use cocoa bear to contour my cheek but you may not see that so well.


    and i was really bummed you can’t see the color truly on the lips… i used a nude lip color (Mac’s Sis) then i placed unexpected over it and in the center i used a little bit of shimma shimma as well as on the cupid’s bow…

    Hopefully you all like what you can see!! =)

    Hi Everyone!!!

    the brown warm eye look is for the daytime entry, and the purple-bronze-mauve smokey eye is for the nighttime drama look.

    Hi I hope my post will be accepted, i clicked on it before 10pm MST (midnight EST), at 9:59PM MST to be exact.  But it says I posted at 11:05pm?  Not sure why…

    I forgot to include that the only eyeshadows used for both looks were the MUG starter kit shadows.  The glitter eyeliner on the inner corners is an ELF bronze glitter liner, and I used mary kay mascara, and ardell lashes, cut down to 2/3 size to only accentuate outer corners instead of a full strip.

    OMG!! I forgot to include a picture of me with the products, I hope this will work, because I already removed my makeup and took a quick snap with my phone.  :(

    Good luck to everyone!


    Here is my very last minute Dramatic/night time look:)

    Shadows used:


    Cocoa Bear


    Shimma Shimma

    Other items used:

    L’oreal Lineur Intense liquid eye liner

    Bobbi Brown Gel eye liner

    NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk for a primer/base

    Ardell demi wispies

    YSL Shocking mascara


    I was hoping to take the pictures in daylight but had to settle for pictures using a flash.  It takes a little away from the detail but I hope you like it nonetheless :)


    Thank you!


    Also, here is the link to the look in the Idea Gallery since the images show up bigger there for some reason:)  Hopefully this doesn’t affect the time of submission because I technically submitted my contest entry before midnight but am now editing to add this after midnight….eeeeeek fingers crossed:)





    Thank you and congrats to Laura! :)


    Wooooo Hoooooo! Thank you SO SO much! I’m so excited:)))

    Congratualations to Viki as well! Your purple look was my favorite! LOVED the light middle of the lid!


    Thank you so much Laura :)
