46th Weekly Make-Up Tag - Bohemian

I was really looking forward to this weeks tag,then I got super busy I was doing a makeup shoot on the beach we had 4 theme's to cover so that kind of took all my time up. However when I came to do the tag the pics weren't coming out right :( I generally don't like browns on myself I feel they make me look washed out or something I don't know what it is but hey ho .. We have Aimee joining us this week so please make her feel welcome :)

'A Girls Gotta do What A Girls Gotta Do' - July Haul'in


Guest Post - Luchessa's 5 Top German Products

Hey everyone today is a guest post from the lovely Luchessa, we decided to do a swap guest post so make sure you check out my 'Top 5 British Products' over on her blog today .. Hope you enjoy the post and don't forget to enter her giveaway:)


Hello Ladies, readers of [Diary of a makeup geek] and friends!

My name is Luchessa and i'm the writer behind {Beauty expression by Luchessa}.
After recently talking to Aqeela on Twitter, we both decided to do a guest post for each others blogs and it seemed to be a good idea to tell you about our favorite local products. As you know Aqeela is based in the UK, so she is going to tell us about the best british items in her collection over on my blog, while i'm sharing my german beauty products here with you, since i live in Germany.

So let's get started.
It was not difficult to pick out my most used and loved products of all times, but it was a challenge to make sure the brands are really from Germany. Finally i managed to find 5 really great products, that you hopefully are going to like as well.
Stay tuned until the end and you might find a little surprise.

45th Weekly Make-Up Tag - Monochrome

Yep you guessed right it's that time of the week, after umm'ing and ahh'ing and asking your opinions last week I've decided to keep the makeup tag going when I think about how I was the first to ever start a tag like this and how successful I've made it and also seen others take up the idea it would be a shame to let it go, after all the efforts with a screaming baby and staying up until 4 in the morning to type the posts up I just can't bring myself to end it so I'll keep it running until it dies down, can you believe it we've been doing this tag for nearly a year! Thank you to everyone of you for you honest feedback I really appreciate it :) Ok for this weeks tag if I'm honest I didn't have a clue what monochrome makeup would be .. want some more honesty I still don't know, when I think of monochrome black and white springs to mind so I went with just that and this is what happened, I'm not happy with how the pics came out I once remember a photographer saying they don't like shooting white as it blows out I think I experienced just that  ... We have a lovely new lady joining us so please make Keira feel welcome girls ...

44th Weekly Make-Up Tag - Kiwi

Hey dolls, I've been deliberating whether to end the tag once I have been running it for a year as over the time less people have been taking part due to priorities in life and busy schedules, being a mum of one I can sympathize and emphasize with you on all that, however the tag is the one thing which keeps me in touch with my makeup so I'm not really sure what to do whether I should stop the tag or do it less often (which I know I will get lazy with if I do it less often) .. I appreciate everyones views and ask everyone for their honest opinions .. is it now that time to say farewell goodbye to the tag? Let me know your thought please.

43rd Weekly Make-Up Tag - Cruella Deville

Hey dolls, hope you are all well, I was lucky enough to slot time in for this weeks look because today (Wednesday) is the first day of my fast so muslims tend to clean their houses from top to bottom we do generally but at this time we literally have a good ol' clean, cleansiness is one of the key parts in Islam. So this year will be my longest fast to date closing roughly about 2.42am and opening at roughly 9.45pm (sunrise til sunset) praying times fall around this time too. As a personal thing I don't wear makeup throughout ramadhan (fasting month) because this month specifically I test my inner-strength and totally dedicate myself, fasting does have some exceptions though i.e. health issues, pregnancy, time of the month although Islam is a very practicing religion it is also a very understanding religion which is why I love it so much so yeah please excuse me as I may not have time to take part in the weekly makeup tags due to fast opening times and prayers but I will try my best.

Advertising With Diary Of A Makeup Geek

Hey peeps, so recently I made a very big decision after a lot of thought I have decided to allow advertising on my blog. I've decided to do the first month (August) at half price for more info head over to my 'Advertisement' tab or click *here*

It took me a while to come up with a decision but I've decided to go for it as I put a lot of effort and time into my blog so I thought why not.

Either way I'd still love to here your thoughts and views so feel free to leave me a comment below.

42nd Weekly Make-Up Tag - Comic

I've been wanting to do this weeks theme for ages and some of my inspiration came from the talented Karla Powell, so last week I was pretty sure my coldsore had gone away because it had been 2 weeks since the last one which lasted 4 months. I thought right it's safe to do this theme but hey I was wrong it came back on Wednesday however I managed to tackle  it and it has healed again but has left behind rough skin, but I guess I wanted to do this theme so bad I used my Diorskin Airflash Foundation and omg did it do an amazing job in covering it up you can see my review on this foundation *here*. Can I just say this weeks tag is burning with talent I love how we all did a very similar look but gave it our own personal touch well done girls!
