Step #1: Preparation

Prepare the materials that you need such as clear nail polish, white nail polish, 1 tsp brown eye shadow, plastic bag, envelope, scissors and a nail polish remover. Put the 1 tsp brown eye shadow in a plastic bag and then crush it until it becomes a fine powder. Use a scissor to cut the corner of an envelope that will serve as a funnel where the eye shadow can pass trough.

Step #2: Mixing

Now, pour the crushed brown eyeshadow through the funnel into a bottle of clear nail polish to create a sheer tone. To create an opaque tone, pour the eye shadow powder into a bottle of white nail polish. You can add 2-5 drops of nail polish remover if the result of the mixture is lumpy and then close the bottle and shake thoroughly until the eye shadow is equally dispersed. To add shimmer to the mixture, put Ā¼ tsp of fine-powdered glitter.

Step #3: Using Complementary Colors

Mix any 2 complementary colors that are opposite each other in the color wheel. The most recommended one are red and green, blue and orange, and purple and yellow. Mix black and white and add some red in them to get brown. Mix orange and blue to make brown and you can add some green if you want it to make it a cooler brown. Mix purple, red and orange as well.
