"Hi Candice :D I have many eyeshadows from Everyday Minerals and I would like to make them into cream eye shadows. Do you know how? The pigments in the pots are very messy and keep spilling into the cap, the sifters are not much help. And they are so messy! But I love all the shades I have and I don't want to waste them. Also, I find that even with primer, they do not last very long on my lids, so I guess turning them into cream would be better in most ways?"

I’ll do a tutorial soon on what I use to get creams/gels out of loose powder pigments! Those of you who are interested, go out now and try to get hold of a few cheap ingredients.
1. Denatured alcohol (isopropyl or rubbing alcohol etc from drugstores would work. Just make sure it’s at least 70% alcohol.)
2. Silicone oil or jojoba oil. This aren’t oils actually despite the name. Not quite as easy to find for some people. You want a binder that isn’t too runny and preferably won’t go rancid. If you can’t find these get a little mineral oil.
3. Empty containers or pans
4. A small spatula or coffee stirrer.
5. A dropper or clean eye dropper bottle.
