Pressed pigments and FOTD!

I pressed some pigments and loose mineral eyeshadows!

Loose eyeshadow is really messy and hard to use so I pressed them!

I pressed the pigments with rubbing alcohol. Mineral eyeshadows flake if they are pressed with only alcohol. I didn’t want to spend money to buy a pressing medium, so I mixed a little bit of glycol with the alcohol to press it.

There are a million tutorials on pressing pigments/eyeshadows on youtube, so I won’t go into the details, but I didn’t do anything special after pressing them.

I made some quiche this weekend as well!

Cheese is really expensive in Japan, so I substituted cream cheese in the egg mixture.

What yummy foods have you made recently?
