DIY | All-Natural Make Up! Bronzer, Eyeshadow, Blush, + more!
What if I told you that you would be able to create not only a lightweight foundation but also a bronzer, blush, eyeshadow + lipstain from just 9 ingredients… Oh, + did I mention they are all organic, all natural, + edible? Ya, well, it is true!
I wanted to know a little more about each ingredient. Keep in mind that everyone's skin is different.
Before putting make up on, moisturizer is essential. I use jojoba oil because, what's the point of putting all those chemicals + irritants that are in moisturizers if you're going to be using natural ingredient make up? All you need is 1 or 2 drops or a spray of jojoba oil for your face + neck. For those of you who are a little iffy about putting oil on your face, but jojoba oil is amazing for your skin. It will combat the production of sebum. But! there are many other oils you can use!
Check out these tips I made to figure out which oils work for your skin! Just go to the tips I created, click on "recent," + tap on the search bar. Search "Best Essential Oils For Your Skin Type" + "Best Carrier Oils" They won't be the first to come up for some reason, but you don't have to scroll down too far-Maybe 5-10 tips down. 🤗
BLUSH | 3 ingredients is all you need to create a plethora of blush colors! Beetroot powder is essential to give it that rosy color, + just a pinch of turmeric will turn any pink into a peach. Add the arrowroot to determine how light you want it. Ok, so believe it or not, I like to start off with my blush. + here's why. I tried + tried + tried applying this blush with just a brush, but to no avail. It would just fall off my face + leave no color. So I decided to apply it as I do my lip stain.
Pour a little powder into your hand. I mean little, as in pea size; otherwise you're just wasting powder. Add a little water + mix until it becomes a dye. Dab it onto the apples of your cheeks ever so slightly + sort of blend it in. A little goes a long way, especially because you don’t want blotches all over your face! Once you are done applying it, take a paper towel + remove the excess powder/crumbs by rubbing your cheeks with a circular motion. This will also help in blending the blush.
As you can see, my first blush has a significant amount of beetroot powder, where as the top right has more arrowroot to make it a lighter purple. By mixing equal parts beetroot + turmeric together with just a pinch of arrowroot, I was able to create a peachy blush (bottom right). BONUS!! All of the blushes you make can be used as a lip stain as well! Keep reading to see what I mean!
Keep in mind that these recipes are going to be very lightweight! I know its hard to switch from the "made in the lab" cosmetics that cover every single red spot, pimple + wrinkle + switch to a lighter weight, less coverage foundation. In the end it is soooo much better for your skin. Think of it as rehab for your skin. Sure, the first couple weeks your skin might not look so hot, but that's because you won’t be caking on chemicals + harsh irritants in order to cover up your imperfections.
Everyday that you stop using over the counter cosmetics you are giving your skin a chance to breathe as well as to rebalance + correct those imperfections to leave you with smooth + clear skin. On top of that, every ingredient in these recipes is going to benefit your skin even further! It’s a double whammy of skin goodness
***Keep in mind this is a powder; it has the ability to go EVERYWHERE. I've no problems with mine, but just make sure to tap off any excess + apply it over a sink BEFORE getting dressed***
FOUNDATION | To make your foundation, you need arrowroot, cocoapowder, ground ginger, turmeric + nutmeg. I started with quite a bit of arrowroot + then added in the cocoa powder. I worked on getting it to a base that I liked + added in the turmeric, ginger + nutmeg to get the tan color I was looking for.
Notice how I am not giving you exact quantities. This is because everyone’s skin color is different, + being able to customize your foundation to match your skin color exactly is what this is all about! Play around with it. When mixing all your ingredients, keep in mind that you can always add more of a certain color to get exactly what you want. Tweek your recipe little by little until you get exactly what you want!
BRONZER | This includes almost all of the ingredients: nutmeg, cinnamon, cocoapowder, beetrootpowder, allspice, turmeric, + a littlearrowroot. I started off with a base of cocoapowder + then added from there. There is only atouch of arrowroot, but you can add more or less depending on the color of your skin. The smallest addition of beetroot + turmeric will go a long way for adding to your tan, so start with small quantities when adding!
LIP STAIN | Remember how I said that any of your blushes can be used to make an all-natural lip stain? First start by pouring the smallest amount of blush into your palm. Add a couple drops of water + mix together with your finger. Next, pat your lips with your finger + try to get as much color on your lips as possible. Let the mixture sit a couple minutes until it dries + wipe off any excess. Seal your stain with an all-natural chapstick (or make your own; I've made several DIY lip balm tips!)
EYESHADOW | I personally don’t wear much eyeshadow, but when I do I like to do a semi-smoky look with black eyeshadow. Activated charcoal. You can buy it in bulk or pill form. All you have to do is break open a couple capsules into a small eyeshadow container + you are good to go. I just use my eyeshadow brush as I would with any eyeshadow.
***Just make sure to blow off any extra charcoal before applying it.***
It is DARK - if you aren’t careful you could end up with black powder on your cheeks! I use toilet paper to cover my cheeks as I apply it, just to be safe.
