Homemade Foundation 

What you need: 

Arrowroot powder (you could sub cornstartch, but it is not quite as good)
Cocoa powder

Add a cup of arrowroot powder to a bowl, and slowly add in cinnamon and cocoa powder, until you come up with a suitable color that matches your complexion.  Apply to a clean, moisturized face with a good mineral powder brush.

Homemade Mascara

What you need: 

2 tsp coconut oil
4 tsp aloe vera gel
1/2 tsp beeswaxVitamin E oil
1/4 – 1/2 tsp activated Charcoal 

In a small mason jar or glass bowl, add coconut oil, aloe vera gel, beeswax and vitamin e oil. Add 1-2″ of water to a small saucepan, and place jar or bowl into the water.  Bring to a boil, and allow to warm until completely melted.  Remove from heat and add activated charcoal and stir until mixed well.

Pour into a small baggie, and push down to a corner.  Cut a small tip on the bag, and pipe into a mascara tube.

Homemade Blush

What you need:

2 tbsp Beet Root Powder
1 tbsp Arrowroot Powder
Ground nutmeg
Ground Ginger
5 drops of Essential oils

Combine beet root powder and arrowroot powder.  You can play around with the amounts of each to find a desired shade of blush.  Add in a sprinkle or two of nutmeg and ginger for shine and a little different shade of color.  Add in essential oil to help the blush adhere to your skin.

Natural Eyeliner* 

Activated charcoal
Cocoa Powder
Coconut Oil

For a black eyeliner, add a pinch of activated charcoal in with coconut oil.  For a brown eyeliner, add cocoa powder to coconut oil.  Apply with an eyeliner brush.

*Be sure to be extra careful when applying products around your eyes.  Make sure you don’t get any products into your eyes, or you may cause damage.

If anyone happens to get a chance to try this out before I go and buy the ingredients let me know how it turns out 🙂
