So I got my supplies today and I played with them for 30 minutes until I had to go to work. Two colors and a lip gloss... I'm so psyched! This is going to rock, I'm going to have LOADS of fun colors and sparklies.

And teaspoons are DEFINATELY enough, especially when you order loads of them to try.

Those are really great!  Definitely need to remember this next time I have a cash surplus.  Smiley

BTW, swift, it's so awesome of you to share your knowledge with us!  I've learned a ton about mineral makeup in the last half hour!

Nice! What micas and iron oxides did you use? Love the light colours, and covet the dark one!

I just bought a whack of new micas and want to play, but I'm getting married on May 16th and there's too much to do!

@Pony -- The dark purple one looks so awesome! Sparkly AND vampy; two things I love!  Kiss

Gah, I don't even wear makeup, but I have an obsession with it. I must avoid this thread... I need to get a new craft like I need another hole in the head!

I went out and bought the POP! sampler by TKB plus a white base & black mica. I start to run short on the basic violet though. I shouldnt do so much purples ;-)

These are the result of the last couple of hours:

Lovely, gorgeous, and highly covetable! I love the green and the burgundy ones - my friends have a thing for merlot type colours. My POP micas came in on Tuesday and I haven't had a chance to play yet - and with the wedding two weeks away, I fear I won't have time until June! I need my perfect lime green...but I'm wearing purple for the wedding and I have a ton of those!

I've been playing with blues lately - so here are a few of the blue sheens I've been formulating lately. (Please visit my blog to see the other blues!)

LIGHT BUT DEEP BLUE MATTE BASE
3/4 tsp eye shadow base (if you don't know what this means, please visit the intro to MMU)
1 scoop (0.15 cc) blue iron oxide or ultramarine blue

This is a great starting point for making other eye shadows, or you can use it alone as a base.

If you'd like it a little darker try...
3/4 tsp eye shadow base
2 scoops blue iron oxide

You can use either of these as the base for your eye shadows. (The recipes below use the word "base" to mean the untinted base...)

ARCTIC BLUE SHEEN (very sheer, very sparkly)
1 part periwinkle blue mica
1 part one of arctic silver mica (blue tinted), fine white mica (satin) or fine white mica (matte)
1 part base (use the eye shadow base for a pale colour, the light blue matte base above for a slightly deeper colour)

If you use the arctic silver mica, you will get a white with a blue tinge, which goes well with the periwinkle blue. If you use the satin mica, you'll have white and it's a little less blue, so compensate with a bit more periwinkle blue if you want it bluer. If you use the matte mica, you'll have a less shiny eye shadow. Try all three versions to see what you like!

This will give you a very icy blue colour that is great for highlighting or using as a sheen.

PERIWINKLE BLUE SHEEN (kinda sparkly)
1 part periwinkle blue mica
3 parts base

This will give you a very periwinkle-y blue colour that is suitable for a sheen. (That's the mica in the picture above.)

MAGIC MAUVE SHEEN (again, kinda sparkly)
1 part magic mauve mica
2 parts base

Magic mauve is a lighter colour with a purple-y blue tinge. If you want more mauve, add more mica, up to 3 parts mica to 2 parts base.

Thanks for sharing your recipes!

The possibilities are endless. I bought this alice band yesterday and made a matching eyeshadow.

I bleach and dye my bangs a lot so I've got a variety of colors to match at different times of the month. I made a green that matches my roots perfectly, these are easy to mix. Making sets makes things easier, too.

I adventured into lipgloss territory and wow for colors! From more sheer to more coverage, red to pink, brown to sparkly, it's nuts.

Beautiful colors, pony!
