Collaboration with Nikki from Makeup Junkie Nikki!

So as you can see from the last week, I have been trying to find some time between school and studying to get this blog active again. In my attempt to do this, fellow Canadian blogger Nikki from Makeup Junkie Nikki and I have been corresponding about doing a collaboration! I'm really excited about this collaboration as I think Nikki is very talented and the theme is just awesome.

As you may know about me, I absolutely love the products coming from Makeup Geek. If you read Nikki's blog, you'll know that she also totally loves Makeup Geek, so building off our idea for a colour palette theme, we decided to choose colours coming from the Makeup Geek eyeshadow line that we both owned and use those in our look. This will be a two part collaboration - part 1 using Nikki's colour palette and part 2 using mine!

Today I will be showing you part 1. Nikki chose this really wonderful colour palette with a camouflage feel. Her colours were:

 I originally did a mostly green look with a burgundy undereye but it was more of a test try that I wanted to eventually redo in good. Then my eyes got infected. I'm on day 4 of eye infection right now and wearing makeup is a no-go. But I really wanted this collaboration to have my heart and soul in it, so I chose the least infected eye and decided to do my look in good!

I remembered this look that I had done in February that I never posted (because it wasn't up to par) that used Shimmermint and Burlesque. So using that idea, I redid my look much different than my original idea. This look had a Burlesque cut-crease blended out with Preppy; it has a Shimmermint lid with the outer corner darkened with Poison Ivy. Finally, the undereye has some Mocha to darken the lashline. I like this look much more than my previous one, so I hope you do too!
