Current Mood: curious curious

What happens when you mix UV-reactive makeup with non-UV-reactive makeup? In this case, it looks like you get sorta-UV reactive makeup - makeup that looks pretty much the same under both UV and regular lighting. Under UV light, it doesn't look like it really "glows", it looks like it's just normal color.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

when i've done it it, it looked normal and then was very uv reactive... but a blander uv color... no less reactive though. did that makes sense.

do you have the necropolis stuff from canada. it's neutral colored makeup that is highly uv reactive.

i have the tatoo pen and lipliner/stick.

I think I happened to get lucky with the non-uv makeup's composition, so that the color remains the same, but it's less saturated and more matte (as much as something that gives off light can be matte.) This is the Krylon aqua stuff, for both the UV and non-UV. One of the things I'm doing with it is dissolving it in water, so that there aren't any big particulate hunks of one kind or another; that may be the trick.

I didn't know that necropolis had lipliner/lipstick; where the hell do you get it, anyway? Google is being unhelpful, surprisingly, and I haven't seen it at any of the "standard" places.

that's the problem, you can't.

it was hard to get it a year ago on ebay.

i can't imagine it's still around. you need to find some canadians to get it for you

Ooh, I have Kryolan's UV makeup! Cakes of six different colors in a watercolor-like tin. It's waterbased, so you just apply it with a wet brush. Excellent stuff!

I used it as the "eyeshadow" at woom. It was real neat under the UV light. :)

kryolan is the best waterbased....
it would probably be more reactive if you painted it over the regular stuff rather than mixing it.
Another interesting note that you may have already thought of: if you paint the bottom in the waterbased stuff, you can paint in amazing detail with oil-based make-up on top of it.
Ben Nye is the best oil-based.

Incidentally, it is usually easier to get off the oil-based makeups than the waterbased because the pigments are stronger in the waterbased ones, and so they get stuck in your pores. With Oil-based, you have to use cold-cream or baby-oil, but it comes off in a jiffy.
