Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you can use black lighting makeup. So the blacklight makeup is essentially something that is reflective underneath a blacklight or it's also day glow so if you go outside it's going to be heavily pigmented. And we have a lovely pallet here and we're just going to select a color that we want to use. You can combine the colors and use them underneath a powder something like that, but they can be used alone and show pretty well, they're florescent. So I'm just going to go in with an orange, these are water activated so go in with a spray or just water alone and go in with a brush. Now too much water, we just want it to get pasty and then we're just going to go where ever we want to apply that makeup. And most people like it on their eyes. And as you can see it comes out pretty heavily, pretty pigmented so you don't need a ton. And you can see that it's just really showing up nicely without even having to dip my brush in the pallet again so it has good color payoff and a lot of layers are not needed. Just kind of work it in with the existing makeup she has going on here, looking quite festive for a Halloween look. And then I'm going to go in one more time for the other eye. And we can see that the paste is drying up pretty quickly so we're just going to go in with another squirt of water, it does dry quickly. So that's something to keep in mind. And it's good to use it with a flat brush because we're just patting it in, it's not something that's very blendable, it's really just for straight application. It can be blended some, but it is just a little more difficult than a regular powder shadow or a cream. And like I said, this can be mixed with other colors on the pallet, but we can tell that it's quite intense on it's own and it's just one color. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how you can use blacklight makeup.
