make-up-bag waste not want not

Continuing with the ‘Alchemy’ project I completed a few years ago, this page is about make – up (Old make up I may add).  I mean Charlie glitter????  Never throw anything away and you too can live in a tip like me lol!  Seriously, don’t ever put old make up on your skin..PAINT or experiment with it!
1.  Pastel pigment and hair gel makes a thinish surface.  A bit of glitter wouldn’t go amiss in this mix
2.  Red soft pastel and Sun Shimmer Bronzer, the bronzer seals the pastel, acting as a protective.  May be interesting to see what happens when mixed with other colours?
3.  Pastel and Peel off Face mask.  This is an important experiment as you shall see later.  Note: peels away by rubbing…
4.  Pigment and oil free make up.  A little like milk paint.  The oil free make up does not protect the pigment very well…
5.  The same but with ‘Charlie’ Glitter gel.  This is lovely, you can see the brushstrokes.  A bit thin and delicate.  This glitter gel would lend itself well to No.1
