  • 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.

    Some Color Options:
    Pale Pink:

    1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
    1/2 tsp. dried beet powder
    1/8 tsp. cocoa powder
    1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Shea butter

  • Mauve:

    1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
    3/4 tsp. allspice
    3/4 tsp. dried beet powder
    1/4 tsp. cocoa powder
    1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Shea butter

    Light Brown:

    1/2 tsp. arrowroot
    3/4 – 1 tsp. cocoa powder
    1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Shea butter

    Golden Brown:

    1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
    3/4 tsp. nutmeg

  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Turmeric
    1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Shea butter

    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.
