question again xD
you used white pearl ex powder in her face right? but how much? I put some in the whole face of my draculauras, but when it gets "dry" I can barely see it, and in photos is even more difficult to see :s
and another question (sorry) did you used flash on this photo or a lamp directly focused to her? because I can't see the lips glitter without flash on my last repaint

I can't say exactly how much, but I make sure the face is covered well and super glittery because some of it will fade after applying the sealant. Just remember to spray from further away than you normally would! You'll have to practice and see what amount of glitters and distance give you the best results :3

For this photo, I *think* I was using a mirror to reflect light onto her whole face (I can't remember, exactly, but I almost always use them). If you'd like the glitter to be visible, they definitely need some source of direct light, they won't be shiny on their own!

okie, I'll remember that :)
I tried it with a mirror after seeing your reply, but the result was a mess xD the one you used was big? the source of light was natural or a lamp from above?

The size of the mirror shouldn't really matter, I use both a medium one and a small one :] With this photo I used natural light, and the other one I used a lamp right above her head!

Hope this helps~

OMG yay I knew it! I just bought a pack of pearl ex powder, and I can't wait to use them!
they are truly beautiful
by the way, how you do to apply the pearl ex and then the MSC? a frien tried and told me the MSC spray made the powder dissappear :s

I apply the Pearl Ex on rest of the head normally with a brush, but I spray from a little farther away than I usually would, with less sealant! (I would leave this step almost for last, before glossing)
For the lips, I actually mix a little bit of the pearl powder directly with the gloss (maybe on some sheet of paper, or right inside the gloss container) and then apply it on the lips- that way it shows on the lips very vibrantly C:

I was thinking in do the same with the pearl ex in all the head too :D but I didn't know that about mixing pearl ex and gloss! it's brilliant :D do you mean if I try it?
all those tips will make me improve so fast :la:
