In the jewelry business, it is common to display jewels against black velvet.
This striking display has a high degree of visual impact; the contrast is used to catch your eye.
Jewelers call this 'foiling'.
Foiling helps to enhance the color and intensity of jewelry.
Mineral Makeup Foiling
We can use the idea of foiling with our mineral eye makeup as well.
For visual impact.
Or, just to keep our makeup on ALL DAY.
Foiling is the technique of mixing water with your minerals to deepen the color and hold it onto your skin...even better than it stays already.
You can use the foiling technique to line your eyes.
Did you hear that?
That was your gorgeous eyes going POP!
You can foil your entire eye lid.
Go for the glam.
How To Foil
Here’s how you can get a little extra shimmer and shine from your eyeshadow.
Dip your makeup brush in water and then in the eyeshadow. The eyeshadow powder will stick to your brush. Then use a surface (like the lid of the container) to blend up the eyeshadow and water. You want a smooth flowing blend, not a paste.
