Mineral make-up: Part 13(a) - Green with micas

As I may have mentioned previously, I love green! So here are a couple of my new green recipes!

From these posts onwards, please check to see which eye shadow base I am recommending - the basic eye shadow base or the alternate eye shadow base. You can use either for any recipe, but the alternate eye shadow base will make the colours more vibrant.

SUB-LIME (lime green - bright with sparkles)
2 scoops basic eye shadow base
3 scoops apple green pop mica
6 scoops lemon drop pop mica
1 scoop strawberry pop mica

Put all ingredients in a bag and squish together until you're happy with the colour. If you want a less green colour - and why would you? - you can reduce the apple green to 1 or 2 scoops.

A regular eye shadow container will require 3/4 tsp to 1 tsp of eye shadow, and the recipe above makes 12/32 - so triple the recipe to make a full container.

OSCAR (dark green with sparkles - named to go with Wanda's A-OK that looks like Big Bird, which will be posted on Friday.)
2 scoops blackstar green (not a pop mica, but very nice)
2 scoops apple green pop
2 scoops alternate eye shadow base

Put all ingredients into a bag and squish together until you're happy with the colour.

To make a full container of this colour, use 1/4 tsp of each to make 3/4 tsp.

Join me tomorrow to continue the series of greens with chromium oxide.
