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 is packaged in a 10ml stackable jar. The actual product weight is 0.3oz.

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.
Our white taklon brushes are great for face painting and for freehand glitter tattoos. They hold their shape well and can be cleaned with 99% alcohol, when used for body glue.
To make glitter gel: Mix (by weight) 1 part glitter plus 4 parts glitter gel base.
Most of our glitters are suitable for mixing in a water-based formula EXCEPT: Holographic Glitter Stars or Hearts, Holographic Gold, Holographic Silver, Holographic Blue, Holographic Pink, Holographic Turquoise, Holographic Green, Holographic Rose Gold. These colors of glitter will dissolve in the base. To get a holographic effect, you can mix opaque glitter colors with other holographic glitters. This base can also be used for other cosmetic recipes.
Ingredients: Water, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E.
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.
