Pumpkin Shimmer Eyeshadow

Ok, I found this and had to repost it. I haven't done mineral makeup myself, but I've wanted to. It looks like so much fun, I just couldn't resist sharing.

As the days begin to cool, I am eagerly looking forward to the autumn colors and crisp air. In anticipation of the fall splendor I wanted to share this recipe for a warm shimmery pumpkin orange eyeshadow and instructions on how to use it. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Shimmer Eyeshadow Recipe:

2 mini scoops Sericite
1 mini scoop Copper Mica
1 mini scoop Cappuccino Mica
1 mini scoop Peach Shimmer
1 mini scoop Bronze Mica

Directions: I used the mini .15cc pigment scoops sold here. But you can use any measurement as long as you keep the proportions the same.

It's easy to make this color: place all of your measured powders in a container (like a lip balm pot) and mix well.

That's it, you're done! I did a show on Better TV last year and you can see how easy it is to mix. We did that, plus talked about 2 other projects - all in 3 minutes! You can watch that video here.

Contour Eyeshadow Directions:

For this look, I used the Pumpkin Shimmer eyeshadow blend along with the Light Brown and Dark Brown recipes from our Mineral Makeup Guide Book.


1. Apply Pumpkin Shimmer on center of lid to outer edge up to crease.


2. Apply Light Brown eyeshadow to inner lid and brow arch blending well.

3. Apply dark brown eyeshadow to outer edge of the eyelid and along crease. Also apply along the lower lash line but only 3/4 of the way across. Again, blend well.

4. Reapply a little more Pumpkin Shimmer to the center of the lid if you have blended it in and want a little more coppery goodness to show!

Pumpkin2Making eye shadows is super easy. You can buy all the ingredients seperately or you can buy the comprehensive starter kit we've put together here. No matter how you look at it, making your own make up is affordable, easy and fast. You can create what you love, make it your own and have fun doing it!
