Makeup Geek, Morphe and Mac shadow collection

Twenty Makeup Geek, Morphe and Mac shadows

I’ve always liked the idea of putting together a custom palette of eyeshadows but couldn’t justify the £10 each at MAC – that would work out to be one bloody expensive palette and, frankly, I haven’t found that all MAC shades are good enough quality to make it worth it. Makeup Geek, on the the […]
