Mauvey Gem Eyeshadow Recipe

Voyageur's recipe for a soft mauve-purple eyeshadow.



Mineral Makeup has burst into the major cosmetic industry because of its superior quality and the demand by consumers to use more natural and eco-friendly ingredients on the skin. Learn why people are turning to this new trend for all their skincare needs.

Mineral Makeup is made using a combination of natural pigments and fine powders designed to provide excellent colour and adhesion while leaving your skin feeling like you’re not wearing any makeup at all. Unlike traditional makeup, Mineral Makeup is non-comedogenic, which means it does not block the pores of the skin but instead allows the skin to breathe, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin. Another key benefit to mineral makeup is the prime use of inorganic ingredients, which means that bacteria and microbes cannot live in the makeup and infect the skin.

Making your own Mineral Makeup is both enjoyable and economical. With many professional lines costing upwards of 20 to 40 dollars for a small jar, making your own just makes sense. With the wide range of pigments and micas we have available together with the other specialty ingredients and cosmetic packaging, you can create your own line that rivals any on the market today!


Choosing the Right Colours for your skin tone

The first thing you need to do before choosing the colours of your cosmetics is to decide if you have a Cool, Warm or Neutral skin tone. The best way to do this is look at your skin in natural light. If your skin has a slightly blue undertone in it then you have a Cool Skin Type, if you have more of a yellow tint in your skin then you have a Warm Skin Type and if you are neither even then you have a Neutral Skin Type.

If you are making a concealer then you usually want to go one shade lighter than your skin tone so that when covering up darker areas it will blend and look even. Alternately you can use a green concealer stick which is great for reducing red spots caused by acne and rosacea. Your foundation should match your skin colour as close as possible.

Mineral Blushing Powders are designed to give a more sheer, natural look as opposed to Crème blushes that give more intense colour. Cool skin tones suit lighter intensity colours like pastel pink, terra cotta, peach, rose or plum. Warm skin tones suit a more medium intensity colour in coral, warm red, bronze, and brighter pink tones. Neutral can generally choose colours from either grouping.

When choosing Lip Colour keep these pointers in mind. For Fair skin tones try pinks, light peach, honey or beige and slight apricot shades or for a more dramatic look, dark berry colours. For Medium skin tones pinks, rose shades, light mocha, caramel and reddish burgundy colours. For Olive skin tones choose brown reds, deep rose, bronze, dark apricots or berry.


For powder blush tap a small amount onto the lid and swirl your powder or fan brush into the blush and apply to the face starting at the apples of the cheeks and moving upward towards the hairline in a sweeping motion. These powder blushes can also be used as wonderful eyeshadows and can be applied dry with an eye brush, or alternately wet your eye shadow brush with a bit of water, dip in the powder and apply across the eye lid for a more dramatic look.

When customizing your colours keep in mind how intense you want your colour and how much shimmer. It is best to combine your pigments and titanium dioxide onto a blending sheet (freezer paper works well) first and then slowly add your colour mixture to the rest of your ingredients until you get reach your desired intensity.
