PRESSIBLE BASE

 

Since I have never made a base before I mixed some of the Sample Pressing Base Recipes provided by Kaila in her book, I also used TKB’s MyMix base and some MyMix base “cousins” in which I replaced one ingredient of TKB’s MyMix original base with a different one, here are the formulas I used

Although pre-mixing your base is not necessary I found that it makes things simpler, as is hard to measure the tiny amounts needed of certain ingredients when making one eye shadow at a time, having said that make sure to make a small batch of your recipe to test it and make sure you like the results before you mix a larger batch.

 

To mix the bases I used my oster blender adding one or two ingredient at a time and mixed for 30 second after each addition. Place your finished base in a container that is easy to weight in your scale.
