How To Make Eyeliner & How To Foil Shadows

In my newest YouTube video I showed how to make eyeliner out of loose shadows and also how to foil shadows and pigments.
I decided to make a written tutorial too, because it was fun, lol.
And just so you can get the full instructions :)

(video at the bottom)


MAKING EYELINER
It's easy to make your own eyeliner. It's fun and you can make just about any color eyeliner you can think of.
I love doing this, and it goes on just as well as any liquid eyeliner.

WHAT YOU NEED:
1) A mixing medium, like the one from MAC, or a cheaper one, like eye drops! (yes, eye drops work perfectly)
What you don't want to use is water because water evaporates and you'll just be left with crumbly, flaky shadow.
2) Any loose shadow or pigment (can be shimmery or matte).
Pressed shadows work too, but you may ruin the shadow if you put the medium right into it. I would scrape off a bit of it and mix in another container.

HERE'S HOW TO DO IT:

1. Put a drop of mixing medium or eye drops into a mixing container, or, I just use the lid of the pigment that I'm using.

2. Dump a little bit of the shadow into the lid and mix the two together with an eyeliner or small angled brush, so that you get a liquid eyeliner consistency.
If the color is too clear in color just mix in more shadow until you get a more opaque color.



FOILING SHADOWS

I also showed in my video how to foil shadows.
Foiling shadows is pretty easy and a lot of fun, you just have to get the right consistency for it to work.
Foiling gets the name from tin foil, because when you do this it can have a tin foil-type effect.
This works with shimmery shadows and makes the color shine like crazy!

WHAT YOU NEED:
1) A mixing medium
2) A shimmery shadow (looks awesome with gold or silver!)
3) A stiff shader brush (a brush that's not too floppy...goat hair bristles work best)

HERE'S HOW TO DO IT:

1. Put a drop of your mixing medium into a container or on your hand

2. Dip your clean brush into the mixing medium. It usually takes me about 3 to 4 drops. You want it damp but not soaking wet. Enough so that when you dab it onto your hand you can feel a little wetness, but it doesn't "paint on" wetness

3. Dip your brush into the shadow to get a good bit stuck to it

4. Start pressing carefully and see if you can get the shadow to stick to it.
You're looking for a creamy paste consistency

5. This is too crumbly so you want to put more mixing medium into another container and dip the brush into it to get it wet
DON'T PUT THE MIXING MEDIUM IN THE SAME CONTAINER THAT YOU'RE MIXING IN
WE'RE NOT DOING THE EYELINER METHOD :)

6. This is what you want. A creamy paste that sticks to your brush and looks really shiny

7. Instead of putting it on like a regular shadow, dab it on.
You can drag down, just don't try to blend and do a "windshield wiper" motion or anything because you won't get the same effect.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE!
