I came across this picture (I mean the top image with the green and yellow eye) and I love the slick-looking eye make-up but I'm not sure what sort it is. I would love to get some to try out. Can someone tell me what kind of make-up this shiny stuff is exactly so I can look for some to buy? Or is it something simple like an application of gloss on top of normal eyeshadow? Thanks in advance.

I hope someone knows. I have to have some of that glittery pink stuff, have to.

Maybe bodypaint applied with a small brush? That's usually very highly pigmented.

This is also true!

I think some of Illamasqua's Pure Pigments come in non-matte styles:

Alas I can't afford one Mimi, lol. Plus I really enjoy messing about with make-up myself.

Fizzy, I think I'll have a wee play about with body paint and gloss to see if I can create something similar. If it goes awry, it's easily washed off, lol.

Can deffinently recommend these guys - I use limecrime myself although I only have a couple of colours. These are some examples of what i've managed to create with Limecrime make-up (you do need a good primer though - urban decay is the best)

I suspect some careful Photoshopping is the answer

Me too, I got a load of new make-up stuff at Xmas and I have more on the way including cool face paints, can't wait to experiment with it all!

If you like colourfull make-up brands I can recommend are LimeCrime, M.A.C, Urban Decay, Front Cover and BarryM. These are all brands I use for the bright make-up I do.

TrueDefinition - Thanks. Glad you like them. Im not sure if they really have space on my portfolio though as I only have 7 images I can use and need to show what I look like to photographers.
