Cocoa Powder Nutmeg Dried Beet Powder (make your own** or find it online) Tumeric Allspice
1. Start by placing 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. in a small bowl. The more arrowroot powder you use the lighter and more subtle the color of your homemade eye shadow will be. You can always add more, so start with less.
2. Add your other spices/powders and mix thoroughly until you get the color you
desire. 3. Once you have a well mixed color, add in 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. of shea butter. Use the back of a small spoon to “cream” the butter in with the powder against the side of the bowl until you have a soft, creamy powder. (It really will still look mostly like a powder.) The Shea butter will help
keep this homemade eye shadow on your lids and provide a nice moisturizing kick.
substitution for arrowroot: You could probably use cornstarch, but arrowroot is more recommendable because it’s a finer and lighter powder and less irritating. Tapioca flour might be another alternative. But experiment at your own risk.
**For dried beet powder: wash and peel one giant beat and then cut it into small 1/4″ cubes. Then use a dehydrator for 8 – 12 hours until they were dried. After a quick spin in a handy little “mixer” (you could also use a spice grinder) you have a lovely beet powder. Make sure your
dried beets are SUPER dry and grind them very fine or else you’ll clumpy mess. (And the beet smell will subside, promise.)
To use: use your finger tip or a small brush. Tap off any excess and gently wipe as you would other eye shadow.
