Powder to Liquid

Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 12.29.03 PM

This was my first time experimenting with mixing matte pigments with Makeup Forever’s Aqua Seal and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I love all the color eyeliners I’ve been seeing, I just wanted to use what I had instead of buying more. I have lots of loose shadows so it seemed like the right time.

I sprinkled a little bit of a loose pigment onto a mixing palette with ONE DROP of Aqua Seal. Aqua Seal is no joke! It makes what you mix it with waterproof… and it’s essspensive so don’t waste it.

Side note about Aqua Seal- I assisted a class at The Makeup Show with Orlando Santiago and the man put Aqua Seal on errrythang! He added it to his under eye concealer so it would dry waterproof and resist creasing *gasp* He applied it to powder eye shadows so when they dry, they were water proof *deeper gasp*… the entire class I kept saying to myself in disbelief, “no?” My mind opened and the possibilities are endless!

Makeup Forever- Aqua Seal

Royal and Langnickel- Soft Grip Gold Taklon Script L Size 20/0  This is actually an art brush

Side Side note about brushes- I love Royal and Langnickel brushes! They have great art and beauty tools. I use their Aqualon brushes for body painting or other water activated paint applications. The 20/0 brush I used for this was a little old so I trimmed any stray hairs so I had a nice clean point 😉

After applying the liner, it dried nice and matte! I was worried it would mix with the purple eye shadow underneath, or that the red liner would be too sheer. It turned out opaque and really fluid. Here’s to more experimenting and new colors!
