Pressed Everyday Minerals Concealer/Brow Palette

Here's all my Everyday Minerals concealers and my eye kabuki (which I need to order again). Spring is my favorite concealer! It covers undereye circles, redness, dark marks, blemishes, you name it!! The eye kabuki should be renamed "Concealer Kabuki."


Pressed my minerals using only 90% Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Don't get your vodka out for this! You'll also need a sterilized quarter wrapped inside a regular T-shirt for that catchy pattern and it soaks up the excess alcohol when you start pressing. An eyedropper is handy when adding alcohol to the mix in a 5g sample jar. Three-quarters of a sample jar should be suitable for pressing in a 26mm pan. A couple of bent up bobby pins for stirring and spreading is also needed as well as a massive amount of paper towels because the activity is super messy folks!
You'll need empty eyeshadow pans and a palette to put them in (e.l.f. Elements compact for $1 is what I used). And did you know I'm a germ freak so I scrubbed that quarter as good as I could with soap and water and let it soak in the alcohol. I would have flamed it also after the alcohol because I remember we used to sterilize our loops like that in Microbiology. But that's another story.

These matte minerals hold up much better than the shimmery eyeshadows that I pressed before. Here's a link to my video.




I forgot to take a picture of Multi-tasking in the jar.


Here are the swatches:

Wow, I came acros your blog for the Wet n Wild Sand Castle palette review (which I'm buying thanks to you :p), and the pressing mineral is such a great idea. Especially concealer, and... my Nars Casino shattered so I get I could repress it. I'm off watching your video, thanks for sharing!

@Seline, Hi there! Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope you like the Sand Castle palette. Actually, I used it yesterday. LoL. But yes, pressing loose mineral concealers makes it so much easier to use! Thanks for watching my video =)
