Eye Shadow Easter Eggs

I have been racking my brain for over a week trying to come up with a fun, different way to color Easter eggs.  Somewhere around using wet noodles and a mesh onion bag, I came up with the idea of smearing eyeshadow on the eggs. By the way, wrapping the eggs in wet noodles made an interesting design, but this approach was a giant pain in the tush. Alright, now back to the makeup.

This process is pretty straight forward and a bit messy.

First, I raided my makeup bag for different shades of eye lid coloring. I wanted to make sure I had a few brighter colors to keep my eggs looking Easter-y.

Next, I scraped a little of the powder onto my work surface and, using my finger, I rubbed the color all over the hard-boiled egg.

I learned that if I slightly dampen my finger on a wet paper towel then spread the eyeshadow onto the egg, I achieved a bolder, more even look. And when I used a brush or an applicator, I got a dusty uneven outcome that I also really liked.

This process was all about experimenting to see what looked good.

I love how these turned out. They are so pretty and shiny! I would recommend that these eggs be more for decoration and less for eating and hunting.

Now it’s your turn to try. And remember, the cosmetic aisle at the store is your only limit!
