I am using the oxides from coastal scents added with pearl mica to make them shimmer. I use them with a poofer bottle and they work fabulously for me now.
Last longer than glitter tattoos too

I use snazaroo powders that I bought from sillyfarm. I think there are six colors, very soft pastel colors. I use those usually as blush or on the eyes on little girls. Sometimes will use them over a paint color to give it a soft glittery look.
Also have the starblend powders, bought from sillyfarm. I mostly use the white, black and red. I have yellow, orange and blue also, but haven't found I frequently use them. Will be needing to reorder the white soon, I use it a ton for tigers and really quick skull bases.
Also have some mica powders from ABA, in so many different colors I can't name them all. My fave all around is holy grail--a gold color. I use it with face painting. The ABA mica powders I use to lay down bases, swipe a shimmer over paint OR for mica tats. A lot of times I find teens prefer the mica to glitter for tats.

Hope this helps!
