OK, why didn’t I think of that?!?! Duh! My brain is such a doofus sometimes!February 19, 2017 at 12:26 pm #20444
Lmao. Then once you made the pink. You take some of that, and you at 1/132 tsp of ultramarine to start your berry process. Increase the pink/red mica by 1/132 tsp if needed. Same with ultramarine but only after deepening the red side.February 19, 2017 at 12:27 pm #20445
Oh, if it does have the deepens, try a small small pinch of black oxide or black mica. 😁February 22, 2017 at 6:36 pm #20535ZilParticipant
Oh man I gotta try the berry colors. I’m just sooo yellow that anything too yellow looks like orange mud on meFebruary 22, 2017 at 9:17 pm #20549
We don’t want you wearing orange mud Zil!
So Twin and Joyful, what color blending advice/combos/recipes do you have for Zil, since y’all seem to be really good at blending? I will also be taking notes, if I ever get around to making makeup again. Life needs to just STOP IT! Enough already!!February 22, 2017 at 9:21 pm #20550
1/132 tsp of black oxide to colours so you don’t become the pumpkin. The other thing to do…start a hair darker than you think. Then you can add a touch of titanium dioxide to lighten it if necessary. Also, if you need to keep out the yellows and oranges- ultramarines are your friends. You won’t need a lot, but a dash here and there will give boosts of colour. 😁February 26, 2017 at 8:14 pm #20643JoyfulParticipant
So far in the “berry department”, i’ve only made purpley pinks, well I made others but stupid me didn’t record it since I was doing it with a friend and I forgot. What I would do is mix a bit of titanium dioxide with mangenese violet (a MUST for berries, it’s amazing) and either a pink or red colour, or both. Red will give a deeper berry. Don’t use red iron oxide, you’ll just get orange or brown mud. If I want to deepen the colour, I’ll use a tiny bit of red iron oxide blue shade (won’t deepen as much as black). Grind them up (makes a world of difference for me, even if I spend 20minutes blending by hand, it’s far from what I get with the coffee grinder), and put a little bit of the lipstick base on your hand, then add some powder and see if you like the colour before actually making it. If you like matte lipstick and it’s not matte using the long-wear base of the book, you probably didn’t add enough powder. I usually use a bit more than the book. Also, for some reason if I use micas, it gives a satin finish and sticks to cups, even with the same amount of powder. With the pigments, after about 15mins of the lipstick drying on my lips, there is barely any transfer.February 27, 2017 at 8:40 pm #20710
Ooh, Joy. I like the berries. I just bought the violet. So, hopefully it will be beautiful for me. Must have berries, plums, and my occasional nude for those plainer days. LolMarch 1, 2017 at 9:16 pm #20761
Oh, I need this color! I was wondering why I didn’t get it, and I see you can’t use it in CP soap. I was trying to get multi-purpose colors, so I stuck with ones that I could use for both cosmetic use and CP soap. I may have to get this pigment at some point! It’s just too pretty!March 1, 2017 at 9:33 pm #20763JoyfulParticipant
I have 100g of it, haha. It was one of the first colours I got, and I didn’t know how much volume it would give, so I didn’t want to run out. It fills about half of a sandwich-sized ziplock bag, so it will last a LONG time. It turns quite darker when wet though. Dry it’s bright purple, but once put in the oil, it turns dark purple. I will be making lipsticks again maybe next week, so I’ll try to make a colour for you, Cyn. Can you post a picture of the type of berry you want?
Btw, as blush, I love using my lipsticks lightly dabbed on. It will always match, and less products to make. Have you tried that?March 2, 2017 at 1:28 pm #20770
I had a friend that used her lipsticks the same way, Joyful. I’d be afraid the wax would clog my pores or something in the lipstick would cause a breakout, so I personally would be hesitant to do that. I have thought about creating colors that I can use in both a lip product and a powder blush product, but since I’ve only made the powder foundation and the Elle Woods blush, the thought is the farthest that idea has gone!March 2, 2017 at 4:37 pm #20775
I bought multipurpose mica and stuff. But occasionally, I have needs. Lmao. Like Eggplant purple!March 2, 2017 at 4:46 pm #20777
Let’s see if I can do this on my phone. Lol

This is my shirt in wearing. The purple and berry colors I loveMarch 3, 2017 at 8:26 am #20790
That shirt looks purple and orange to me. Somehow, I can’t see you making blushes and lipsticks in FedEx colors. Haha!March 3, 2017 at 10:21 am #20799
Lol there are brown, orange and yellow as well. I’m just focusing on the others.
