#PIGMENT PINK AND PURPLE EYESHADOW

Hey there Pouters

Have you ever looked at pigment pots in makeup stores and thought to yourself how on earth do people use it? It’s quite ‘shocking’. The colors are very deep, intense and bright.

In my opinion, the secret to using it successfully is in the 1) base, 2) blending and the use of water.

Here are a few photos of me using pink and purple pigments from INGLOT.

I first used a KRYOLAN white paste as a base for the colors to ‘stick’. As you can see, I also used sticky tape to form a straight line and also to catch fallout from the pigment powder. A cream eyeshadow was used on the inner corner and on the brow bone.

The more you blend, the less intense the colors will appear.

I shaped my brows, applied liquid eyeliner on the upper lashline, applied eyeliner on my lower waterline and of course topped it all with mascara.


As you can see the look isn’t as intense as it looked in the beginning when pigment was being applied.

I mentioned earlier that one can use water with pigments. That will cause a very intense look, but extremely difficult to blend. You’ll have to blend the edges out with dry pigment powder afterwards.

Another use for pigment is adding powder to clear nail varnish. You’ll have your very own custom nail color..
