Makeup Geek is a website that makes applying makeup easy and fun! With a variety of videos on almost every makeup technique, Makeup Geek’s goal is to enhance your makeup skills in the comfort of your own home.
Makeup Geek is my place to share my passion for makeup and beauty with so many others! My goal in life is to help even just one person feel more beautiful- if that means the use of makeup, then I’m ok with that.
Makeup for me is a way to enhance my natural beauty- it isn’t a mask or a way to hide, but more like a way to shine. It can also be a way to get creative and wear gorgeous colors in a fun way! If applying the perfect shade of lipstick makes me feel more confident on my way out the door

Essential oils have their place secured in a natural beauty routine: They’re natural, chemical-free alternatives to everything from traditional cosmetics to potentially toxic fragrances. But many can do a lot more than just smell good: While we can’t say with authority the 10 oils highlighted here are miracle cures, throughout history they’ve been credited with treating problems including igestion issues and acne; increasing concentration; killing germs and much more.
For Anita Boen, who runs an organic farm that provides herbs and oils to upscale spas, lavender is a go-to oil for almost any situation: Not only is it one of the few oils that is gentle enough to use undiluted, it’s a “virtual first aid kit in a bottle.”The antibacterial properties allow it to fight germs (which is why it’s also such an important ingredient in many all-natural cleaning products for home and body), and, like peppermint, it’s often credited with aiding digestion and helping fight headaches.
Lavender oil’s soft scent is said to help calm the nervous system, improve sleep quality, combat joint pain, and fight everything from urinary disorders and respiratory problems to high blood pressure and acne.
