I got my Micas from www.tkbtrading.com.
They are called Pop! Micas. I have made my own eyeshadows for a long time but i have never thought of making a tutorial for it until i saw another girl's homemade mineral eyeshadows :)

I'll put up some "recipes" later. :3



Crafts

Instructions


  1. 1

    Before you do anything , disinfect every thing you are working with. I use 70% rubbing alchohol.
    Also, you should put on gloves and a dust mask.

    Here is what i used.
    I got the Micas from TKB Trading and i got the baggies and stackable jars from Michaels.

    Start by picking out the main hue (purple) then add a scoop of that in your baggie.

    To add more depth, keep adding colors until you are happy with the results.

  10. How to make an eyeshadow. Homemade Mineral Eyeshadow - Step 10 10

    I like to keep what i've made organized by numbering them then putting the color on a piece of tape.
    Then i tape it into my sketch book along with the "recipe" so if i run out of the color, i can make it again.

  11. 11

    If you want, you can snip off the corner of the baggie and transfer the eyeshadow into a 5 gram jar.

This is great and to keep it on I use a tiny bit of lipbalm on the tip of my finger and dab it on my lid first.

I've recently gotten into mineral eyeshadows, stumbled upon this and am about a heartbeat way from ordering their kit- my only question is this: I bought a couple of the mineral eyeshadows off a site, but I can't seem to make them stay on my lids. I've tried water, and nothing. Is there a natural base I can find or make that will make these minerals stay put??? And I don't wear concealer or have face makeup b/c it seriously irritates my skin. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

You'll need to use primer. Its a type of foundation that is designed to keep makeup on your face. You can get it anywhere and make your own. Hope this helps. ;)

I think this sounds brill and you can make any colour u want, you don't have to go by what the shops tell you 2 have. And it's probs a whole lot cheaper too. Although it's rather nice when someone else makes it 4 u!! Thnx 4 the how-to x x
