Start off by gathering the supplies you will need:
Eye shadows or Loose pigments
Empty Eye Shadow Pans - I buy mine from Coastal scents
Dish or Tray to mix on - I use the Silver top from my B & BW candles
Mixing Tool - I like wooden Orange sticks used for manicures
STEP 1: Can be done in 2 different ways. If you have a loose pigment just pour a small amount the size of a nickle on to your tray or in the dish. If you have Solid Eye shadows you want to mix and re press all you need to do is take your mixing tool (orange stick) and scrape a chunk or shadow(s) out of there original pans onto your tray/dish.
STEP 5: Carefully mix the coloured powder and the R. Alcohol together with your mixing tool making a wet paste (adding more powder or rubbing alcohol as you mix)
STEP 6: At this time use your mixing tool to scrape the paste into a pile and again using your mixing tool pick up chunks of the paste and put them into your empty eye shadow pan until the pan is full.

STEP 8: Leave the shadows to set for a few hours (when if feels almost solid and dry to the touch) you can place a cloth or a piece of plastic over the pan then press the shadow one last time with either a quarter or you thumbs.
STEP 9: Let the Pressed shadow set over night and your Finished:)
