Can you show me your Starblends designs?

Post by Lauri Strandell on Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:20 pm

I use the white starblend for kitty, tiger and puppy base. I use red starblend for spiderman. Do you have any designs that use starblends that you want to share? Thanks Lauri

They are really super for butterfly bases and skeleton masks (you know, half skull type). Sorry I don't have any pictures. I like the Ben Nye Lumieres. They are fantastic!

Oh I love doing Pirates with the Starblends. The black as the eye patch is really great to use. Especially with the little ones. And the red as the scarf.
I do use my black paint to outline and white for a skull on the cheek and highlights.
I had the purple Starblend and it sucked big time. No pigment.
I could of had a bad batch though.
If I can find a pic I will post later.

I don't have a lot of pics. The vibrancy of the colors doesn't translate well to photos. I mainly use them for super hot humid days when paint melts off the face as it's going on.
Starblends work for any design you'd use paint for.

That skull is awesome!
I had the purple too and it was awful. I have combination of starblends and lumiere powders. The lumieres are quite vivid. Smile

I thought the "idea" of starblends was great, but fell flat in practice. This is why I have hesitated adding them to the shop. They didn't really have the pop or blending capabilities of paint and I found that I got powder all of the kid.

I felt the red was the most vibrant on the kids, but once it got all over their white t-shirt I was very frustrated. I traded these off pretty quickly.

oooh, that doesn't seem good. I have to buy something to use for the humid months of July and August. What temp will the regular face paint "die"at? I mean, I had Snaz paints to melt on me all summer long. But, my other paints I kept hidden inside my case. But, I didn't paint much outside last year in the summer. This year I will have to. It was like 98 in June here last year so, any advice guys?

I was also wondering about the Kryolan.

I would like to try pressed powder. How do pressed powders compare to loose in coverage?

I know I can't use loose I would use drop to much and loose more than I use.

I only have white starblends and I like the way it looks, but it takes me three times as long to cover a face with it. Maybe I just need more practice. I was using a smoothie blender. It was difficult to remove. Which is good for humid days, but I am always hesitant to put something on a child's face that will have a mother cursing while trying to take it back off, haha...

I like the pigment and sparkle of this eyeshadow, I would like to find something like this in a larger amount then the tiny bits here

Any ideas of a product like this?
Would this be worth adding to a kit?

Metina, I have read in another post that you didn't have sucess with the starblends and that's why you don't carry them in your shop. I haven't had any problems. They are super great for speed, the coverage is just fine in my mind, and I love it for a quick white base. The base goes on with no dirty fingers (like from a sponge! I don't like sponges if you couldn't tell), maybe its the way I load or the application technique, I don't know?
The base goes on in less than 30 seconds. I saw Kristal's rabbits on another thread and they look like powder bases and are fantastic!


These pics are from my first ppf in Oct 2010 - no powder on the clothes.




Remember, this is my first event - be gentle with me!

These are so bright! I tried a starblend for a white face, but and I was unsure of the coverage. (you can see it on my sugar skull) and was going to either ditch buying them altogether or just pick up the white and black....

So let me get this right...these are orange, white and yellow star blend with black liner, correct?? Hmmm....I had written them off yesterday....perhaps I should be rethinking my purchase. Perhaps I need to adjust my technique? I used a lollypop sponge (stick?) for application..... is that a no no??

Wait........... Kim, just the white base is Starblend, the orange/yellow is my dfx rainbow cake applied with a one inch brush. I only bought white, black and red. Yes, I use the smoothie blender.

Kristal (EDITED), I wanted to ask about your bunny rabbits, is the base a powder?, is the pink in the ear a powder? They look so smooth.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the black and red from the same october 2010 event. White starblend eyes and white dfx and black dfx for web.





Remember this is a festival for kids, not a competition, so I was happy enough, and the kids were super happy.......

I use mica shimmers for princess faces, masks, and as a base for swirly eye designs (it's easy on, easy off & I don't have to add glitter afterwards because the shimmers are already shimmery & pretty.....I use the lollipop swab thingy to apply. I have about 12 colors all very pretty, some brighter than others.
It does tend to dust onto the clothes at times (so when doing darker colors I, with my left hand hold a small tray, under the person's face/chin to catch the dustings of color that fall down).

Ok...I can see where the starblends may come in handy...... but I think more than the black red and white would be over kill for me. I love the pop of MY BRAND NEW (than you Matina!) metalix and my snazaroo. I am still sampling so much as I'm never sure what will be my new Fav paint. Time will tell as I settle in. Being a noob is a great adventure.....but a great expense. someone please tell me that the pocket book impact does start to let up over time!!!!!!!

Oh....and if you get a chance, the glitter I got with my order is AWESOME! ( and I have tons of glitter) It's new and I really loooove the look of it!

The blue fairy wing glitter sample - it is good, Thanks Metina.

I rarely use my black starblend, however I used it one time for a quick skull (NOT a design I had for inter carnival but winged it - he was plenty happy, so that makes me happy enough).



Love the starblend flower design, I wonder how long it stays on? - here is the link Powder Flower Link

I answered in the other thread already, but hey, I'll go again Smile

Didn't use Starblends - I don't even have any, actually. The white base is Snaz, the pink is Kryolan, and the black linework is either Snaz or DFX, depending on whether it was on my skin or the practice head.

That is what I would like to use them for

Can you share the type you use and the size they come in, where you purchased them and maybe a photo example? Thanks

Also I watched a couple videos of people using the mica shimmers as eyeshadow and they used a brush and pressed into the area, they used a primer base, so I wonder if there was a lite white face paint base would work, then put the micas over it. Then maybe they would not fall off as much, or you could use black base for silver or red base for gold, of course doing that creates double the work.

CAn I ask how you use the lumiere and starblends?
I bought a ben nye lumiere for a job but the colour wasnt right anyway
I tried with a dry sponge but it was just so sheer so I used a wet sponge.
Is this how you are suppose to use it?

I have all the Starblend colors(purple stinks, looks blothchey & the cake seem harder & less powdery than the others). I use them only in hot humid days & occasionally on small children or kids who might be sensitive to wet paint. I keep black, brown, red & white on hand all the time. Black & brown make great beards & help dirty up monsters quickly. Red & white are for quick spidy guys. Black & brown are also great for quick shadowing on jewelry, tattoos, masks, etc. I apply them using a smoothy blender or for shadowing I use an eye shadow brush.

As for the skull on the 1st page... I sat looking at a Wolfe Brothers book & copied line for line about 1 1/2 yrs ago because I couldn't paint scary stuff to save my life(that's my son, the dancer) affraid
