MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder + Swatches

Do you remember in 2009 when pigments were the biggest thing? I remember getting those large containers and hardly making a dent in the jar. Then people started to press them and the hype of pigments kinda died down...

Fast forward to 2017 and I have seen the use of pigments/powders starting to get popular again. My favourite look is a smokey eye with some gold pigment patted on top. Or maybe even a metallic green. So many options!!!

Last month, when I went to a MUFE master class and these MAKE UP FOR EVER star lit powders ( $25.00 CAN) popped up in front of me. I fell in love!!

An ultra-fine shimmering powder that catches light to highlight eyes, lips and cheeks.

These things popped into my head......
  • Hygienic 
  • Manageable
  • Multipurpose

As an MUA, I've seen some random things.
I remember when someone stuck their finger into one of my mini pot lip colours... EWWW!
It reminded me of high school when one person use to have a vaseline jar and I'd see several people sticking their fingers in it.. Products like this eliminate situations like that.
The hole in the middle is pretty small. I just tap a little on my metal palette and thats all I need.

Back to my conversation about those big jars of pigment that were overwhelming and never were finished. These smaller jars are much more manageable. Plus they take up less space. Eight shades to chose from.

It can be used anywhere- eyes, lips and face.
These powders are extremely finely milled and can be applies wet/dry.
Mix some clear gloss with it to amplify your look!
