Did you know that you can make your own makeup, at home? All natural?
Although, keep in mind that, in the end, some of the homemade makeup may cost more, due to the fact that the ingredients necessary can be pricey on their own. But, if you’re determined pamper your skin and lashes with natural, friendlier ingredients, continue reading.
Here are a few make up items you can prepare by yourself:
Black mineral powder, which can be found in small recipients such as jars (although could cost more, a jar can be used to make up to 15 mascaras);
Bentonite clay, which helps with the drying so the mascara doesn’t smudge;
Vegetable glycerin, which smooths the mixture and helps it adhere on the lashes;
Aloe Vera, also for smoothness, but also for texture and some nurture
Lavender essential oil, for a touch of perfume and to make the lashes glow
To make your own eyeliner, you need 2 tea spoons of coconut oil, 1 or 2 capsules of activated charcoal for black or half a tea spoon of cocoa powder for brown. Mix well and store in an air-tight container, in a cool, dark place.
For an all natural homemade blush you need half a tea spoon of Arrowroot powder, same amount of cocoa powder and Hibiscus powder, all mixed up and stored in an air-tight container of your choice.
Useful tip: Gradually ix in the Arrowroot, until you get to your desired shade.
It is made of two parts: the lotion base and the ingredients which give the color. The lotion is made up from 1 tea spoon of Shea butter, 2 of Argan oil, 1 table spoon of Aloe Vera gel, 1 tea spoon of witch hazel and half a tea spoon of veggie-based emulsifying wax. To bring color to that, you have to add kaolin clay, Earth clay or Bentonite clay, depending on the desired shade, zinc oxide powder (non nano and uncoated), and cocoa powder.
