Mixing & Experimenting with Illamasqua

Ihave been having a play with some Illamasqua products to try and mix some new shades.

I decided to try and mix these two beautiful Cream Pigments from the Toxic Nature Collection to see what colour they would create. Their creamy texture made them really easy to mix and blend.

Cream Pigment in Depravity

Cream Pigment in Androgen

I swatched  both shades, and the middle swatch is the colour I created. I would describe it as a dusty pink. The shade I created would be beautiful as a cream blusher or a stunning summer lip colour.

Here are the next two pieces I decided to swatch…

Cream Pigment in Bedaub

Liquid Metal in Electrum

The middle swatch is the mixed products, I would describe the shade as a mossy metallic mint. I think this colour would look great as a cream eye shadow to create a war paint festival look. To create textured eye makeup, apply all three of these shades for a night time twist.

Why not try mixing some of your own Illamasqua products and see what new shades you discover? Share your swatches on our Facebook wall or on Twitter!
