  • The makeup I used: light white/gold glittery eyeshadow, loose powdered bright blue eyeshadow, loose powdered bright purple eyeshadow, bronzer, shimmery black, dark blue, dark green, and dark purple eyeshadow palette, shimmery teal green palette.

  • First I melted down some light blue soap, and poured it into the bottom of the cup. I scraped some shimmery gold eyeshadow off of the palette, and mixed it in. Then I put the soap in the freezer, and let it solidify so that I could get good color separation.

  • Like real rock-making in nature, this is an organic process. You can experiment with all kinds of things to make your rocks look more convincing. For some rocks I dumped powdered eyeshadow or dye directly into the mold on top of previous layers. Try not to use too much powder, though.

  • If you drip dye onto liquid soap, it’ll start to diffuse, but you can let it cool partially before you add the dye to get less diffusion. Then when you add the next layer of hot soap, it’ll partially bleed into that layer.
