Makeup Geek MannyMua Palette Look Tutorial
1. After applying eyeshadow primer, apply Beaches & Cream as a base shade with a fluffy brush.
2. Using Makeup Geek’s Defined Crease Brush, put Mars on the lid and into the crease (or if you have hooded eyes like me, onto the hood.
3. Apply Aphrodite to the lower lid.
4. Layer Insomnia on top of Aphrodite.
5. Press Cosmopolitan onto the lid.
6. Use a bit of Sora to blend out the edge of Aphrodite on the lower lid.
7. Use a bit of Beaches & Cream to blend out the edge of Mars. You could use Sora instead if you wanted.
8. Highlight at the inner corner and under the brows with Artemis.
All swatches below are on bare skin, swatched with my finger tip.
Makeup Geek MannyMua Palette Comparison Swatches
I wanted to share some Makeup Geek comparison swatches. I could have sworn that I had Bitten in my collection but I currently have no idea where it’s hiding. I included Urban Decay Gash (from the XX Vice Reloaded) and Kat Von D Raw Power. I think they’re very close but Raw Power is more sparkly and Gash is closer to a satin-matte. Melt’s Love Sick is not as close to Makeup Geek Mars as I thought it would be. Mars is cooler toned. I did think Makeup Geek Cherry Cola and Too Faced Bordeaux (from Chocolate Bon Bons) would be close but Cherry Cola has more red in it. I’m happy to see how close Cosmopolitan and Amelie are.

I’m hooked on GlitterDaze Phosphorescent Nightshade (H). I loooove how this color looks. It has fuchsia, purple, and royal blue multichrome flakies with ultra sparkly silver holographic glitters. Soooo gorgeous! I’ve also got Delphinium (H) turquoise, blue, purple and pink multichrome flakies with holo effect and Belladonna (H) blue, purple, and pink multichrome flakies to try next.
So I tried NARS Craving (the bronzer side) as a blush with a duo fiber brush. Not sure how I feel about it. I also used the highlighter shade with it. It’s pretty but too subtle in general for me. When I was in LA this was the one makeup item I purchased when I was out shopping with Jen (from My Beauty Bunny).
I could not settle on a lip color that I liked with this look and I should have just gone for Urban Decay 714. I tried a bright pink, a bright orange, a soft pink, and finally said screw it and just used the sheer UD lipstick, Walk of Shame. I added a bit of UD’s lip junkie gloss to the center of my lips. What color would you wear with this look?
For Teal Thursday, I’m sharing my gorgeous Bunny Paige Dragonfly Micro Necklace. I’ll be buying another, larger Dragonfly at some point in the future because I loooove how this color looks. It’s so eye catching. Bunny Paige makes so many gorgeous necklaces, as I can attest by my ever expanding collection.
I still can’t get over how much I love Cosmopolitan layered on top of Mars with Mars in the crease. I think it makes my eyes pop in a beautiful fashion. I’ve been really into red eyeshadow lately (see my UD Gash tutorial).
