The Power of Pigments

Happy Almost New Year!

     I can't wait for 2013, but this year has gone by so fast! I was playing around with some colors for a New Year's Eve look and I came across my NYX pigments. I love my MAC pigments, but I almost forgot about these!

      I was looking for a new way to wear them; I wanted to really show the opaque colors. Keep reading to see my favorite way to wear them!

For a base, I used a two cream shadows in black and white.

The bottom row is that cream shadows swatched without anything layered on it. The top row is the same cream shadows with the NYX pigment on top. The white had a greater sheen to it, but the black turned into the prettiest steel grey! It shows how many different looks you can achieve with just three products.

      I have tried this technique over and over again with different colors and I am shocked at the different results every time. There are so many options with this! Tell me in the comments what pigment/shadow combos you have tried out and make sure to follow. Check us out on twitter under the username @foreverfuchsia and follow! Thanks for reading!

NYX pigments are great and are very inexpensive compared to MAC.

This is really cool! How do you prevent fallout with pigments?

I would try spraying your brush with a little bit of water and then apply it. Not only will it prevent fallout, but it will be more pigmented!
