Make-up powder

Tools, Tips, Technique


Eye-shadow or make-up powder comes in a variety of colors made with both artificial and natural pigments it is generally sold as a solid block usually applied with a brush or sponge.


I frequently use a non-greasy eye-shadow, especially for hair shot in close-up and for beauty portraits and fashion magazine covers. It can be applied lightly to fine tune and create tone or to blend extensions and hair pieces, around the roots or mid-length, with the natural hair.


Always use a little hairspray to fix the color, this ensures that the powder does not end up on your models face or clothes.
