Makeup Geek Purple Eyeshadow Palette

I wanted to bring you an updated DIY Makeup Geek Purple Eyeshadow Palette for 2018, since Ultra Violet is the Pantone color of the year. Makeup Geek has discontinued a lot of colors over the past year or two, so I wanted to make sure to only include colors that are currently available on their site. I didn’t include a black or white matte because I’m making the assumption that you have basic, staple shades like that in your collection. I chose mostly fun colors, only 2 ‘work safe’ shades included.

I created 4 different eyeshadow looks with the Makeup Geek Purple Eyeshadow Palette to help spark your creativity. I do wish that Makeup Geek had a pastel purple shade similar to the one found in the Kylie Purple Palette, because that would be perfect for blending out the edges of other colors. I did include 1 (technically 2) Makeup Geek pigments in this ‘palette’ because the colors are amazing and you need them.

PR + purchased by me.

Row 2 – Taboo, Petal Pusher, Vintage, Invincible, Caitlin Rose, Mesmerized, Tin Man, Blacklight

Now, I would have preferred to choose Makeup Geek Confection instead of Petal Pusher, but Confection was discontinued. In my opinion this palette really needs a white with purple undertone but there’s not one in the Makeup Geek lineup.

I included Mesmerized and Vintage for people who are afraid of purple. People tell me these colors count as purple. While I typically think of purples as being well, more similar to Invincible, I can understand that some people don’t like bold purples.

Dedicated is a color that Makeup Geek calls a warm purple matte, but on my skintone it reads as a burgundy wine. It’s a beautiful shade. I included that and Courageous, which is a magenta pink with purple undertones, because they work well with the other purples.

Kaleidoscope was included because it’s the #1 color that I’ve received compliments on from Makeup Geek. I wear it a ton and it’s usually in my trio of travel shades when I pack Makeup Geek (Kaleidoscope, Sugar Rush and Sorcery). It’s an awesome color that has a pink to violet to teal shift. It’s so pretty! (see my Ever After High Raven Queen Tutorial using Kaleidoscope)

Tin Man was included because it’s a beautiful silver with purple undertone. It looks great with all these colors.

There are a ton of mattes in the palette for versatility. You can layer any of the shimmery shades on top of the mattes for more complex looks.

Fairytale, Wisteria, Petal Pushes and Vintage can all work as transition shades on pale skin like mine. Taboo is an excellent liner, outer crease or accent color.

Masquerade, Caitlin Rose, Daydreamer, Kaleidoscope, Tin Man, Blacklight and Mesmerized make great lid shades. I love using Phantom to highlight.
