here are perhaps many methods people use when foiling their pigments or mineral eyeshadows; there really is no right or wrong way, just whichever method works for you. Why apply them wet? Applying your pigments or mineral eyeshadows wet intensifies the color, making it look so much more vibrant as well as lasting longer as oppose to it dry, giving you a look that lasts all day!

For this demonstration, I am using MAC Pigment in “Your Ladyship”, I will use more vivid colors in another post to show the difference but this was the only pigment I had on me!


Row- Yeah I know a lot of girls who use Visine or other form of eye drops and I have used it myself and works pretty well! I haven’t noticed a huge difference, when a pigment is dry it’s a bit more gritty and lighter in color, when wet it’s a lot more vibrant, shiny, and smoother in texture.

Nilla- Yeah a lot of gals use water and eyedrops, I say whichever works! I tried them all and they all do the job, but for some reason with water it becomes sorta runny at the end of the day. 😦

Comparison of DRY vs. WET, although ‘dry’ looks more intense here, it’s really not (it was a sparkly white in person), as you can see when applied ‘wet’ you can see more of the goldish cream undertones as well as shimmer….

Take some pigment off from the cap, this should be a good amount (or put some on the other side of the storage container):

Apply to your eyelid in pat and dab motions to prevent streaks, let it dry, add more if necessary to intensify color and coverage:
