New Mineral Eye Colors

Hmm, so many colors so little time.

I already have an extensive assortment of eye colors on the Mineral Makeup page on the website but darn it if I didn't find a whole BUNCH more of them and I just have to share.

These are nearly all in the slightly shimmery to sparkly category but the slightly shimmery ones are so darned subtle that even us "mature" ladies can wear a little bit of these colors and not look overdone. The key is to use them just on the lid portion so there is no highlighting of any areas that might be less than perfect. Generally your eyelid proper is a nice canvas for a bit of color.

I am going to post a few colors every few days so you can get an idea of the incredible range of these shades. As is often the case the photographs, while good, cannot capture the color shifting abilities of some of these shades.

Xian is one of them

It looks like a beigey-yellow but it really shifts from tan to gold to lime as you move it around. Just stunning and works for any eye color to give you some interest.

For the adventurous it can be used as an all over shimmer.

Did you know that you can mix mineral colors into clear polish for your own personalized nail polish ! Yep, it is so easy and so fun. Same thing with lip stain. Just apply a clear or sheer lip balm or gloss then brush in a dot of mineral color to puncht it up.

Next is a georgeous color called
Antique Copper
This is a coppery brown shade that has a fair amount of punch and delivers a medium shimmer. Perfect for eyes, eyebrows, lip gloss and nail polish.

Stay tuned for the next color installment.
