To get started see what you have in your kitchen/bathroom cupboard before you rush out to the shops. You will need to find a set of kitchen measuring spoons, three mixing bowls, pestle and mortar, a large empty jam jar with screw top lid, a wooden spoon, eye shadow pots with lids 10/15g (sterilised) an eye dropper and apron.

Your secret ingredients can be brought at Cinema Secrets or Charles Fox and the chemist.

Step One

Make sure that your kitchen work surface is squeaky clean and you’re ready to begin. The first step is to make your mixing medium. Be sure to measure the following ingredients carefully, one and half teaspoons of magnesium state, six teaspoons of baby talcum powder and three teaspoons of cornstarch. Mix well together in a large glass bowl with a wooden spoon. Pour your mixing medium into your large jam jar and pop on the lid and your ready to make your eye shadows.

Purple Orchid

Measure one heaped teaspoon of the mixing medium and pour into the mortar. Add twelve drops of jojoba oil and mix the two ingredients thoroughly using the pestle until the jojoba oil is fully absorbed. Measure half a teaspoon of baby talcum powder and quarter of a teaspoon of cornstarch and pour into the mortar. Add quarter a teaspoon of the ultramarine violet and the tiniest pinch of titanium dioxide. Mix well with the pestle. For a richer, deeper purple add a small pinch or two of ultramarine blue into the brew. If you prefer a softer sultry violet instead of ultramarine blue go for a pinch of ultramarine pink. If you think that the eye shadow is too dry you can always add an extra drop of jojoba oil.

 

Once you are happy with your custom blended colour fill an eye shadow container with the eye shadow powder. Wrap a two pence piece coin in a layer of cling film or kitchen foil, place on top of the loose powder and press firmly to compact powder. Remove coin and pop on the eye shadow lid!
