Mineral Eyeshadow is the No 1 MUST HAVE in your makeup bag.
A little or a lot of Eyeshadow is a WOW factor in any application of makeup. When makeup, either liquid or powder is applied to the face the colour of eyelids will be different. The addition of eyeshadow will enhance the finished look tremendously.
The right eye is "foiled"and left eye applied normally with eyeshadow simply brushed on. The main colour is Sky with Rose Mocha as an additional feature. The look can be as vibrant as you wish. Experiment and have fun. Foiling is when you add a drop of water to powdered eyeshadow to deepen the colour and achieve a more metallic look. Shake a little shadow into the lid, add a drop of water, mix with your brush and apply
Eyelids are quite oily, so don't use a moisturiser on the lid. Instead, when applying Mineral makeup (also referred to as Mineral Powder or Mineral Foundation) dust your eyes too. Best to use is Mineral Veil which is loved by makeup artists. Rice powder is the ingredient that performs the magic keeping creases away and the colour true.
The oil on the lid is the cause of creases in eyeshadow. Creases can be very ageing. The colour of the eyelid is different from your face so if you have well applied foundation and lipstick and no eyeshadow the overall look can be let down. Just a little will make the world of difference to your look.
TIP! If you have spillage below the eye simply flick it off with a clean brush, don't wipe.
Shake a small amount of eyeshadow into lid. Dip the shadow brush into the minerals and tap off excess. Apply eyeshadow in short strokes rather than drawing long lines. Short strokes will adhere better.
TO USE AS EYELINER:
1. You can wet the brush and pick up minerals and apply with an angle brush or tiny fine brush, OR
2. Take a drop of water, pick up minerals in brush and add to water and mix. Makeup artists do this on the back of the hand.
To set really well dust the eyelid with Mineral Veil.
