A few months ago I was coerced (not really but I have to explain my bank statement somehow…)  by various YouTubers I watch namely Jaclyn Hill, Tati / GlamLifeGuru, and Danna Ann to buy some Makeup Geek eye-shadows.  And…. I’m Obsessed!!! They are sooo good, I just can’t get enough!  I will be doing a review in the coming week so stay tuned.  But as a teaser I’ve created this eye look for you.
