Brushes + Tips for Mineral Eyeshadow Application/Blending

Today I have a post with my favorite eyeshadow brushes, and a demo on application + blending! (Video can be seen first on my channel)

To begin, I want to express my love for mineral makeup. I LOVE mineral eyeshadows - pressed eyeshadows don't seem special to me at all, to be honest. I love the unique color and inspiration between each shadow. That is why I decided to do media inspired products for my brand Brija Cosmetics.
One thing I wouldn't be without in my eyeshadow application process is a sticky base. The base/primer is the most important step in applying mineral shadow - it holds the loose powder on. My favorite recommended sticky bases are the ANF Diva Sticks and the Brija Cosmetics + Pumpkin & Poppy cream shadows.

Products Used in the Demo Eye Look:

  1. Eye colour depends to a great extent on the pigmentation of the iris. Normally blue eyes, in addition to the iris pigmentation, are also caused by a factor called the Rayleigh scattering of light that makes the sky appear blue. Low levels of melanin in the iris make it appear dark thereby reflecting shorter wavelengths of light causing the blue color. While eye make-up for all types of eyes is not constant or easy, for people with blue eyes make-up is easy because any contrast color would highlight blue eyes and make them appear beautiful.
