Shadowing!

Post by anniel on Tue Jan 10, 2012 1:12 am

Ok, I have always used a filbert & black/orchid Paradise for shadows...tonight I happened to have my black oxide, and because I was having a tussle getting the shadow going, I switched to the oxide (like mica) and voila! Soooo much easier! Like a Star @ heaven

Anniel, I'm with you. I'm not great on the shadowing with washes yet so was trying to make things easy while I learn. Found a black mica pressed eye shadow for $1 and it is awesome for shadowing! May save the wash technique for adults and use the eyeshadow on fidgeters.

Yep, black starblends work great as well.

Yep, Im with you Whitney, I use black starblends for shadowing. Works great on the brim of Mario's hat too, just off the top of my head! I use it for scull foreheads and jaws too.

Skull work is what I originally had the oxide for (cheaper than starblends) for Halloween venues (nicer for the actors to wash off night after night than Wolfe)---much kinder to little ones and parents! Like it on vampires and the like too.

On a side note. I got some of the mineral eyeshadows at the dollar store (L. A. Colors) just to see if I wanted to play with some powder before spending $ on Starblends or Luminere's (kinda like starting with an appetizer palette). Anyway, found pressed black, turquoise, violet, and gold as well as loose lollipop pink, bronze, gold, and black. The loose goes on well with a sponge dry for a shear look or with a sponge just dampened on the tip for an opaque look. The pressed ones work dry or damp with a lollipop sponge. Figure if I don't like them I only spent $8 and no shipping for the learning experience.
