Need some feedback

I was thinking last night about changing my name from Geek Faerie to Gossamer Geek.  Any thoughts from the internet?

Peacock Pretty FOTD


Good morning, duckies!  What a lovely Friday Eve we are having don't you agree?  I did another Face Of The Day (FOTD) that I wanted to share with you all.  This time I had some fun with peacock colors for a punched up work look.  This look would also work well with glasses.  I think it turned out very nice don't you?

What I used:
the Balm's Balm Voyage palette, colors A2 (shimmery pink purple) and B2 (bright sky blue)
Urban Decay's 24/7 eye liners in Asphyxia, Deep End, and Mars
Make Up For Ever's Smoky Extravagant mascara
NARS Deep Throat blush
Urban Decay 24/7 lip pencil in Ozone
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics lip gloss in Hot Mess
and of course my foundation and primers: Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance, Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer, Pixi Beauty Redness Reducing Primer, Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, and Urban Decay Naked Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder.

How to apply:
Apply your primers and foundation as you normally would be sure to blend.  Don't forget your neck!
Pat B2 to the inner corner of your eye and sweep toward the center or your eye. 
Pat A2 from the center of your eye to the outer corner.  Blend where the colors meet if necessary.
Starting from the inner corner to the first third of your eye apply Asphyxia to the lash line.
Starting from the first third to the second third of your eye apply Deep End to the lash line.
Starting from the last third to the outer corner apply Mars to lash line.
Liberally apply your mascara.  You want those lashes to look fluttery and beautiful!
Apply blush to the apple's of your cheeks.  Smile big when you do.
Line your lips with Ozone and apply Hot Mess for opaque coverage.
