Hello Makeup Zombies!

I am a huge Pigment presser. But what about my poor Glitters?? It's such a bother to pack my makeup kit with little bottles of glitter. But now you can press them for easer travel!



GIFT IDEA ALERT:
Create custom palettes for your friends!

If you are just pressing your Pigments, follow the same steps but just leave out the Glycerin.

You'll Need:
Glycerin
Alcohol (i use 91% it dries faster)
A Small bottle with a dropper nozzle or an eye dropper
Glitter
Empty clean eye shadow pan 
Piece of jean or pretty material
a quarter

Step one:
Make a mixing medium using the alcohol and the glycerin. 3 parts alcohol to one part glycerin. This means if you use 3 tsp of alcohol use 1 tsp of glycerin. This of course goes in your bottle or jar.

Step two:
Coat the bottom of your pan with your mixing medium. This normally takes about 2 to 3 drops.

Step three:
Add your glitter and saturate it with more mixing medium. You want it to be runny so when it dries down the glitter sticks together better. Repeat the step if nesecsary to fill the pan to desired fullness.

Step four:
Wait 1-2 hours to press. This will ensure that the alcohol has evaporated and that the glycerin has bonded the glitter together.

Step five:
Take your pretty material or piece of jean and lay it on the pan. Press the pan using the quarter. Dont press too hard. You will notice that the cloth will leave a nice pattern of your Pigment/glitter. (You wont see it as much on the glitter)

Step six:
Use it-Time to get creative!

This is pretty straight forward if you already press your pigments. I hope this helps!

It's so important as a makeup artist to continue your education and find new ways to re-fine your skill. You can go back to school, train under another artist, ask a MUA (Makeup Artist) at a MAC counter for tips or advice, search the web, read books, ect..

I am a huge YouTube fan. Everyday I find myself drawn to the site in search of new technics, inspiration, and silly entertainment.

Here are a few YouTube beauty "guru's " that I enjoy watching:

A potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast… Bad never looked so good. A crystal ball of colour created from our favourite Disney Venomous Villains, inspired by the three most infamously frosty, fabulous and formidable of Disney’s dark ladies… and one dastardly Dr. Facilier. Don’t you love it?

A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella De Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen are dazzlingly devilish; Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s DR. FACILIER, both up to no good on their own. Uniquely designed iconic packaging you will kill for, cunning characters and bedeviled beauties that are so alluring, you can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be one!

I only picked up two items since I am broke.... lol
I might go back to pick up My Dark Magic Eye Shadow duo & the Magically Cool Liquid Powder in the color Trut & Light. Got a sample!This thing has  agreat feel to it! It's a powder but feels like water when applied to your face!

Here are the two items Ipicked up! My camera is out of battries so I will post swatches at a later time.
