Bramble Berry’s Eye Shadow DIY kits launched this week! I’m so excited about this product line. The kits come with instruction booklets and everything you need to make 10 eye shadows. You’ll have lots of material left over though, so have extra pots on hand to use up the extra material.
In this photo, we used the exact same recipe but added varying amounts of Luster Black Mica to the green. Isn’t the difference striking?
We have two kits: one totally all natural, mineral make up based and one mostly natural that has a few vibrant colors thrown in for the more daring among us.
The full kit, with booklet and the cutest little stacks of colors, retails for $44.95. It’s on our general kits pagefor now, but we’ll have them on their own page soon enough.
I want to make an eyeshadow without using mica. My mom won’t let me buy it online… :/
ALSO, please check out my friend’s and my website, http://www.queenbeeauty.webs.com 🙂
Will definitely check out your site! =)
You can’t really make eye shadow without mica or pigments – sorry. And craft store glitters generally aren’t safe.
You could always phone your order in if it’s the online portion that your Mom is worried about? 1-87-SOAP-STUFF

Any ideas? 🙂
Heather, you bought one? So cool! Let me know what you think. We’re already re-writing the book for the 2nd printing to clarify based on some of our focus groups (focus groups = throwing the kit at some friends and watching them try to figure it out without help) so any suggestion you have would be welcome. =)

Oooh! I do wear make-up and I’m totally fascinated with the idea of MAKING it. The kits look just perfect-instructions and all! I can’t wait to get mine!
You know something? I saw you were coming out with this kit and it didn’t strike me one way or the other … I’ve not been able to muster any desire to make make-up. Until… the night before last I made some spf 30 lotion (I know I can’t call it that for anyone but friends & family) for a friend going to Hawaii and put a touch of bronze mica into it to balance out the white-ness of the titanium dioxide … when I put some on my hand to make sure the color was ok, it struck me how much like foundation it was … and sparked the interest. 🙂
Selling the book so hardcore DIY Crafters can make their own kit rather than getting stuck maybe getting stuff they don’t want or need is a great idea! I’ll get to work on that right away. Thanks for the great suggestion.
I don’t wear make up either so testing out the mineral eye shadows has been a bit like playing dress up … all the time! I learned this cool technique called “Foiling” which is all about wetting the brush and applying the eye shadow wet. This produces an amazing liquid liner (thick) with intense colors that really POP!

I love the idea of eye shadow. I like the way it looks all powdery, I like the way it feels, but I don’t really wear make up and when I do…? I don’t wear shadow.
Nice kit, AM!
How gorgeous are those eye shadows? I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect green, and, realizing I would not find it, I bought some micas and other ingredients during my last visit to Otion. But I’m having trouble finding some good recipes. I am wondering if one can buy the mineral make-up book from you or do we have to buy the kit to get it? (I would love the kit, but I’m already well stocked in supplies!)
