All Natural Rose-Gold Eye Shadow Trio DIY

How to Make pressed Mineral Eyeshadow
I've been making my own all natural eyeshadow for awhile now, and it's all I wear!  I love it so much more than any of my store bought stuff.
I made this palette a month ago, and I absolutely love all the shades.  I love this palette for special occasions, it has a high amount of shine, but in more neural tones....these shades look like they could of came straight off of one of the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay!

-Natural Oil (I love to use Grapeseed or Argan Oil)

 Rose Gold
1/4 tsp Silver Mica
1/2 tsp Beige Mica
1/2 tsp Titan Maroon Mica

1/4 tsp Patagonia Purple Mica
1/2 tsp Beige Mica
1/2 tsp Titan Maroon Mica

Bronze Gold
1 tsp Bronze Mica
1/4 tsp Silver Mica

-Small Bowl
-Measuring Spoons
-Small Whisk
-Eyeshadow Container
-Paper towel

*Make each colour in a separate bowl*

1.  Mix all the micas for the colour of eyeshadow you are making in a small bowl.
2.  Add a few drops of oil.  Mix with your whisk, keep adding oil drops until the powder clumps together just a little bit.  You don't want to add too much oil though.
2.  Add a few drops of water to the mixture and mix well.
3.  Spoon the mixture into your container (you might fill more than one depending on the size)
4.  I wrapped a coin that would fit perfect into the hole of my round container with paper towel, but for the trio I just used my fingers wrapped.
5.  Press down firmly with the wrapped coin, or your finger.
Now you want to leave the lid off for a few days so that all the water will evaporate out.  The water helps the shadow stay together when you're pressing it down, but it's the oil that keeps it together in the long run.
All Done!!
Here's a look at the colours swiped on my hand.  From right to left= Bronze Gold, Maroon and Rose Gold.
