     I realized that the white specks in my pressed eyeshadow is from the ingredients not being grinding properly. Are there any suggestion as to what I can use to grind the powder without the white speck showing? 
    I am currently grinding the powder with a coffee grinder.

    Titanium Dioxide is a bugger to disperse fully even in a kitchen blender, I feel your pain. Try grinding your white pigment in a mortar and pestle before adding it in to the coffee grinder if your batches are small enough to.

    Can I still grind the powders if I already added my liquid binder?
