TKB Trading Duochrome Micas for DIY Beauty, Eyeshadow


When it comes to eyeshadows and micas, the most common finishes are matte, satin, shimmery and glittery. 

But what about those cool shadows that shift and change colors before your very eyes?

These unique eyeshadow colors are referred to as duochrome, or multichrome colors. They have a metallic, chrome finish and signature ability to reflect multiple, gorgeous colors!

As many DIY beauty crafters have found, you have to source duochrome mica colors as is. Read our previous blog post about why making your own duochromes is not possible.
