Yesterday I put together a look using mostly Nyx Pearls that I’d purchased in a recent Hautelook (affiliate link) sale and some Makeup Geek shadows. Mostly I just kind of played with color, without really planning things. I like the results.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Nyx Yellow Gold Pearl pigment – inner v and inner lower lash line
Nyx Very Pink Pearl pigment – inner lid
Nyx Orange Zest Pearl pigment – middle lid and middle lower lash line
Makeup Geek Sensuous – outer lid and outer lower lash line
Makeup Geek Mermaid – crease
Makeup Geek Unicorn – lower crease, outer lid, outer v, lower lash line
TheBalm No Money No Honey – browbone, haloed around eye
Nyx Eyebrow Push-Up Bra highlight – under eyebrows
Nyx Eyebrow Push-Up Bra brow pencil – to define brows
Mirabella Magic Marker Eyeliner – upper and lower lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Midnight cowboy – lower waterline
Smashbox Lash Primer
Milani Runway Lashes Mascara
Illamasqua Feline – contour
Tarte Glisten – blush
TheBalm No Money No Honey – highlight
Illamasqua Pressed foundation in 115 – only on t-zone
Silk Naturals Untinted Oil Control Blur Finishing Powder
Nyx lip pencil in Orange
Illamasqua Intense gloss in Indulge
I started by applying Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I used Nyx Very Pink Pearl on the inner lid and Makeup Geek Sensuous on the outer lid and outer lower lash line. I used Nyx Yellow Gold Pearl on the inner v and inner lower lash line. For the center of the lid I used Nyx Orange Zest Pearl on the center of the lid and middle of the lower lash line and I sort of blended the orange upwards to towards the lower crease, basically the fold of my lid. I then reached for Makeup Geek Mermaid and applied that in my crease. I followed up with Makeup Geek Unicorn in my lower outer crease and along my lower lid/lower lash line. I added some TheBalm No Money No Honey to the browbone and sort of haloed it all around my eye. I added a touch of Nyx Push-Up Bra highlight under my eyebrows.
Again, I can’t rave enough Makeup Geek shadows and how awesome they are. You should definitely check them out if you haven’t already. Love!
I should have blended the lower crease more. But overall, I’m pretty happy with the look. What do you think of it? To me it sort of seems like a watercolor dream, pastel rainbows or mermaid scales.
Some products purchased by me and some products were sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

The eyeshadows are lovely, but your skin is REALLY beautiful in these pics!
This is a fun, colorful look. I love it! Sometimes playing without a plan is totally worth it, lol.
Aw thanks Lynn!
What a fun and beautiful mix of colors!
I’m loving eye makeup looks that are using multiple shades (4+ eyeshadows) so this is totally up my alley right now! But I think the cherry on top is the lip color
Yay! thank you so much Mandy <3
