Amerikan Body Art is proud to announce the release of our own line of Eco Glitters and Mica Powders.
As bio-degradable glitter is a relatively new product, there are few suppliers offering it, and few colors/sizes available. Some of our glitters are sourced from our US manufacturer, and some are sourced from New Zealand. Manufacturing lead-times vary from 2 weeks - 2 months, so it's best to make sure you purchase enough to get you through any important upcoming events. We will do our best to maintain a variety of colors and sizes and to mark each of our bio glitters with expected availability, but we can't guarantee uninterrupted availability. Some colors/sizes have only become available to us as a limited edition sample, and are not currently in production.
Glitters are made from compostable/ biodegradable cellulose from eucalyptus or corn plants.
With the idea of eco-friendliness and sustainability in mind, we have put a lot of thought into packaging this line of glitter. We have chosen containers which are close-out containers from other companies and are recyclable or reusable. We are currently packaging our biodegradable glitters in recyclable glass bottles, reusable PET bottles, or "Better Bags" recyclable zip bags with 100% recycled labels. As the product line evolves, packaging may change if we find something better.
Glitter is packaged by volume in jars/bottles, as glitter weights vary depending on the fluffiness of the glitter.
5g glass bottles hold approximately 3g of glitter by weight.
15g glass bottles hold approximately 10g of ultra-fine glitter.
30g PET bottles hold approximately 15g of chunky glitter.
1oz and 1/2lb bulk bags are packaged by weight.
Glitter gels created with bio-degradable glitters will not have a long shelf life. We recommend mixing your own glitter gels in small quantities, as-needed.
Mica powders are mineral-based cosmetic powders. Mica powders can be mixed with aloe gel or other cosmetic mixing mediums. As they are mineral-based, they will not dissolve in water-based formulas, and will have a long shelf-life. Mica powders are packaged in 10g jars with sifter insert. Please see our Mica Powders page and Highlight & Sparkle page for more info about mica powders.
All of our glitters and mica powders are vegan and cruelty-free.
After many years of searching, we have finally found a product that adheres loose eyeshadow (mica powder) and glitters to the eyelid, without containing parabens and other questionable ingredients. We've had professional make-up artists testing the product for us, and the consensus is that it works great. Simply dab the primer onto your eyelid, or apply it with a brush, then dab your loose powders over the primer. You'll get true un-muted color from all of your loose or pressed eyeshadows, and a foil effect from shimmery shadows. You may want to experiment a little to find the perfect amount of product to use. Too much product, may cause creasing.
We offer this primer in two colors: White and Neutral Beige. The White is better for lighter colored or neon cosmetics, or for someone with very fair skin. The Neutral is a nice option for darker cosmetics, darker skin, or for a more natural makeup look. We started out with just the white color, but had requests from make-up artists for a more neutral/ beige product because the product could be blended into the skin a little easier and wouldn't need to be completely covered with powder. We were pleased to discover that the neutral color works great as a concealer for dark eye circles and blemishes as well. Either color will likely work well enough for most people.
This product can be mixed with glitter or mica powders to create a paint-on cosmetic product. To adhere glitter stars or hearts to the face, simply dab a little of the gel onto the face, and then dab some glitter stars/hears onto the gel while it's still wet. They should mostly stay put, unless you rub them off.
***Tip*** This is the same product as our "Aloe Gel Base." For bulk quantities, check out the Liquid Bling product page.
This is a liquid mixing medium that can be used with your cosmetic powders (mica powders, mineral makeup, metallic powders) to create a liquid paint-on or airbrush cosmetic. It contains NO Parabens. Click the product name for ingredient information.
To make a liquid eyeliner, you can wet your brush with the liquid and swipe it on your pressed eyeshadow cake, or mix a drop with loose eyeshadow or mineral makeup.
To use this for applying glitter eyeliner, dip your brush into the liquid, then dip the wet brush into your loose glitter. Press the brush to the lash line. You may need to do this in multiple steps. If your glitter is clumpy along the lash line, wet the brush again and just use that to smooth out the line.
You can also use this product in a spritzer bottle, as an overall sealer for mineral makeup.
We currently offer this product in a 10ml vial (with attached liner brush) for personal use, a 0.5oz Dropper bottle for professional use, and an 8oz bottle for high volume artists. And we have wholesale case packs available. If purchasing wholesale case packs, please be sure to message us if you need these unlabeled so you can add your own labeling.
Gemstone Sparklers create an ultimate sparkle effect due to their larger particle size.
The particles are translucent, but shine different colors when layered on an opaque surface.
You can apply these as-is, or blend them into your own loose powder creations.
They should be applied over a cream eye shadow or a primer (such as our Fixation Primer) to make them adhere to skin.
Highlighters look like basic white powder in their jars. The magic happens when you apply them.
The shimmer and sparkle changes depending on how you layer them, whether over bare skin or primer, and how the light hits them.
Mica powder can also be used as an eco-friendly biodegradable alternative to polyester glitter.

If the words "Too sparkly," have never escaped your lips... you're going to love our newest Flash Powder series of highlighting micas.
To create our Flash Powders, we started with the highlighter blends, and upped the game with added sparkle.
Flash Powders are slightly more sheer than the original Highlighter Powders.

This is an easy melt & mix base for making your own glitter eyeshadows. Simply melt the base in your microwave (approximately 20 seconds) and mix in your favorite cosmetic glitter. We've been experimenting with it quite a bit and find that a 50/50 ratio (by weight) of glitter and the base works best. Visually, it will look like more glitter than base. You want your mix to be somewhat dry, but not totally crumbly. You'll be "patting" it into the jar, rather than pouring it.
To apply your glitter shadow, the glitter can be brushed on with a flat brush or dabbed on with your finger. It can be layered if you have any gaps.
You can also mix in mica powder to create a creme eyeshadow, but you may want to add a little titanium dioxide to make it more opaque.
