A lot of ladies have been asking Brandi, owner of Prism Pigment Shadows, how to apply their loose pigments. I took some photos to help explain the best way to apply these amazing colors! You can see some other looks I did using PPS at the following:
For the collage, I used Splinter, Stiletto and Disco Ball.
The most important thing when applying loose pigments is to use a primer. For this demonstration, I used the ELF primer. It's cheap, and it gives the pigments something to adhere to so they last longer.
Apply the primer first, and let it dry for a minute. You want it to just be a little sticky when you apply your pigments.
I used an ULTA eyeshadow brush to apply these colors, and my finger to blend the colors together. I typically apply ALL SHADOWS with my fingers, but thought I should show how normal people apply their makeup. It's completely normal to have fallout, where the pigment falls onto your cheek. I always do my eyes first, and clean up any fallout using a tissue with some lotion on it. There are a lot of ways to clean up and even avoid fallout, and the more you use your pigments, the easier it will be to develop your own routine. I used Disco Ball as a highlight, and to make the lines less severe. I prefer blended looks, but you can find a lot of tutorials on cut creases and other looks.
I finished up my eyes with black eyeliner, curling my lashes, and mascara.
I finished my face with bb cream, 2 powders, bronzer, eyebrow color and lip gloss. I'm not an expert at makeup, but I love to play around. I'm sharing so you can see one way that PPS can be used!
And here are 2 of my favorite PPS looks!
