A Pigments are loose color powder in a small jar that are highly concentrated and contain ingredients to help them blend easier and last long. I personaly am a fan of the MAC pigment but I also use pigments from NYX. Pigments are available in matte and frosted finishes and come in an excellent range of colors. Pigments do not streak or cake. Some people use pigments to intensify their eyeshadow color.They are not used very often because they can be a little messy (fall ou disaster) or some people just don,t know what it’s for. But there are many different ways to use pigments.
As i said earlier. You can intensify your eyeshadow color with almost the same shade of pigment. This is also the most common way to use pigments. You can use the pigments wet or dry. Using them wet (foiling) makes the color more fibrant and will also prevent fallout, it will also give the pigment a metallic look once applied to the eyes.
Mix a tiny bit of pigment to clear lipgloss, or Vaseline (I prefer vaseline) or any other lip balm that’s clear. Some people apply the gloss to the lips first then apply the pigment over the gloss, but I like mixing it first.
Mix a shimmery pigment into foundation or your moisturizer for a beautiful dewy look. I like using glittery or shimmery pigments with a brown, beige or pink shade.
Great way to use pigments. Pink, peach, red and orange pigments are the best colors.Add a little bit on a plastic plate and tap on your brush, tap off the excess and apply to your cheeks. and to light up your cheeks apply a very small amount of a shimmery pigment to highlight. Same method as the blush application.
sprinkle the pigments ( I prefer glittery pigment) over nail polish before it has dried.
