Mineral Makeup 101 Basics Video Tutorial

This is just a little video tutorial on some Mineral Makeup 101 – How to apply mineral eye shadow with the dab/pat methods. There are many other methods, including foiling, using Pixie Epoxy (my personal favorite), or other mixing mediums as well as using bases like Paint Pots or Shade Sticks.

I showcase ecoTools brushes because I own about 40 of them, they’re easily accessible to most people, and I think they’re really good quality. You can buy several good sets from Amazon.com.
And you can also find them at Target, Walgreens, Walmart and other stores.

Please let me know what you think of this video, as I did very minimal editing with it and left in a lot of how I blend with these types of shadows.

The video tutorial will be posted here shortly:

      1. You look kinda strict in your pictures here, dunno why! The first time I watched one of your videos I was like “really??? she looks and sounds so sweet” ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Very nice, Phyrra! It really helps to see how you do it. I have a question: Did you use Pixie Epoxy in this look? About how often do you use Pixie Epoxy in your everyday looks?

    1. Hi Darcey!
      No, I didn’t use Pixie Epoxy in this look.
      I list Pixie Epoxy when I use it in a look ๐Ÿ™‚
      It really depends on how often I use it. Some weeks I’ll use it nearly every day, and other weeks only once a week. I primarily use it when I want brighter/sparkly looks ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Phyrra!

    Loved your tutorial!
    I always wondered how to pack up the shimmer shadows!

    I was wondering if you could make a vid or txt 101 on the must have make up brushes and their functions. Or maybe just an eye brushes post ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just a suggestion anyways!

  3. Thanks for the video… just worked out where I was going wrong with my fallout … I don’t tap the brush ! It’s such a silly thing but I am sure it will make a real difference !

  4. Wow great video! Do you have one or are you planning on doing a tutorial about applying mineral foundation and blush? I have purchased some recently and just have the worst time with it flying everywhere, so I actually apply it with a sponge hehe. So I would loooove one similar to this eye shadow tutorial. Thanks!

    1. I’ve done one in the past, but I will probably do a new one ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, the whole dip the kabuki in the powder and tap off the excess (much like with the eye shadow) really helps with mineral makeup. I haven’t tried a sponge but I bet it works well, too.
