"In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit."
- Anne Frank
Foiling eyeshadows, pigments, etc. is a fun and easy way to bring out the pigmentation and vibrancy in your products. Many people use MAC's Fix + but a more affordable alternative is using eye drops!
I did a few swatches of different products to show you the dramatic difference when using this method. You just need a tiny amount to do this, if you add two or more drops, the consistency will become too liquidy (you can do that to make a liquid liner type product) so try to use only a tiny amount. I like to put one drop on the back of my hand, pat my brush in it and then pick up some product.
First up is MAC's Naked pigment. Using Fix + or eye drops with pigments can help make them much easier to work with and also, some pigments need that base to stick to and really bring out the pigmentation, Naked is a perfect example:
Makeup Geek's Insomnia is an extremely gorgeous pigment, however it is by far the most difficult to work with. It's a super chunky, messy glitter. I've tried using glitter glue before and it didn't work as well as I had hoped so I was really excited to see how well eye drops mixed with this pigment.
Along with eyeshadows and pigments, you can use the foiling method for face highlighters:
There is just a few examples, I forgot to show a matte shade but foiling is a great way to make matte shadows even more vibrant or to bring out the vibrancy in those disappointing shades that just aren't as pigmented as you had hoped.
Grab a bunch of your favorite and not-so-favorite products and play! It's so fun seeing what something as simple and affordable an eye drops can do to transform your makeup applications.
