how to use mac pigment

i've been pretty excited about this post.
i'm going to show you 4 different ways to use pigment
if you don't know what pigment is, 
pigment is a coloring system for make up.
basically, you can use one pot of pigment for ALL your makeup.
and a little goes a long way!
i have a lot of mac pigment so that's what i will use to show.
mac makeup is what i use most often, so i am a little partial to it :)

but there are also a lot of other pigments

check your local beauty supplier, ask if they have pigment pots 
and they can probably show you a few different brands.

here are the materials you will need for makeup:
a shadow brush
a cheek brush
cotton swabs

when using pigment to color cheeks
just dip the brush in the pigment... that's it
and apply to your cheeks like blush.
the pigment i use is yellowish in color and goes on a shimmery pink.

when using pigment to color lips
dip a cotton swab in vaseline
then dip the cotton swab in the pigment color of your choice.
apply on lips

when using pigment as eyeshadow
first apply lotion to the lid,
dip the shadow brush in the loose powder
apply on eyes to create an intense LASTING color
using pigment as shadow is my favorite way to use pigment.
in the picture below, i have used two colors...
and it lasts ALL DAY...with seriously NO WEARING!!

when using pigment as fingernail polish,
dump out a little clear polish and pigment on a plate,
stir the mixture together and it creates a fabulous colored polish!

long story short:
pigment is the GREATEST!
it lasts for such a long time.
i have had one pot since JUNIOR HIGH!
and it still works like a charm :)
comment/email me if you have any questions about using pigment 
and i will do my best to help!
