Focus On: Sugarpill Lumi

Focus On is a work in progress. Have you ever talked yourself out of buying a product because the color was too odd, and you wondered how often you would really be able to use it? Or, you know those colors you LOVE because of some hidden versatility that you never imagined when you bought it? I do that ALL of the time. In the interests of loving what I HAVE, and learning its limitations, rather than relying on the influx of new colors, I will be doing this post every Saturday, focusing on a new color from my collection, with examples of past work, ideas for other uses. Please feel free to suggest colors you wish to see, or uses for the ones listed, or let me know what your favorites are for future posts.

Lumi is a sparkling white pigment laden with teal sparkles.  It changes color over colored bases, or can be used to add sparkle to pretty much anything!

Layer it over a white, like Sugarpill Tako for a sparkly white shade.

Or layer it over black for a deep, sparkly aqua.  Here, i didn’t use a black base on ALL of the lower lid, I blended it out, and then relied on Lumi to soften it further.

Or even over turquoise, for an iridescent finish.

Even over pink, it looks gorgeous, though the sheen is subtle.
