I don't know why I haven't thought about using eye shadow to give my hair some electric-hue highlights. I mean...chalk works, I wonder why it took me so long to realize eye shadow also works. Using what you already have is the best way to save money and time!
Other reasons why I love this highlighting method - No commitment and no heat required!

How to highlight hair with eye shadow:
Before you start make sure you're wearing an old t-shirt.
1. Spritz a cotton pad with water. Then gather 1- to 2-inch section of hair about midway down the length, place the moistened cotton pad behind the hair, and press the eye shadow color side down directly onto the hair. Basically, you're sandwiching your hair.
2. Rub the color onto the hair until desire color intensity is reached.
3. Spritz on hair spray liberally.
4. Repeat until done.
Try it out with waves, braids and effortless updos. Also, play with your eye makeup to compliment your hair.
Note: The colors will go away in one wash.
