Don’t forget to always prioritize your safety by researching the ingredients and testing the formulations so it’s suitable for you and your skin. Always do a patch test of every ingredient on your lower, softer side of the arm, before trying the finished product. Every skin is different therefore some can have more sensitive skin to certain ingredients.
Makeup for eyes
For fuller and precise brows, use an eyeshadow color that matches your brows, mix with some aloe vera gel and apply it with a fine angled brush to your brows.
For this gel you will need:
- aloe vera gel (will keep all hair at place)
- activated charcoal (will help you fill your eyebrows)
- cocoa powder (will help you fill your eyebrows)
- vitamin E oil (promotes hair growth)
Mix all the ingredients together leaving the vitamin E oil last because it will help you get the consistency you prefer to have. Just make sure you store it in a container and put it in the refrigerator . The size of your container depends on the amount of ingredients you will mix for your preferred color, but a 3 or a 5 gram container should be enough.
For your eyeshadow you will use coconut oil for your base and a pigment that you like. Coconut oil helps pigment to stick and moisturizes your skin. Instead of coconut oil you can use your face moisturizer.
For different pigments I have a few ideas for you to use:
- Use beetroot powder for PINK
- Use hibiscus powder for RED
- Use turmeric or curcumin for ORANGE
- Use nutmeg or cacao powder for BROWN
- Use spirulina for GREEN
- Use activated charcoal for BLACK or GREY
- Use clay for WHITE, RED, GREEN or ROSE
When you are done mixing, pour in a small container and store in the refrigerator . The size of your container depends on the amount of ingredients you will mix for your preferred color, but a 3 or a 5 gram container should be enough for each color.
GS tip: You can mix two or more of the mentioned ingredients to make your own unique color.
The proportions of the colors depend on how thick and pigmented you like it to be.
- Shea butter (moisturizes skin – base),
- For a BLACK liner add active charcoal
- For a BROWN liner add cocoa powder
When you’re done with the proportions, mix well, pour into a small, suited container and refrigerate. The size of your container depends on the amount of ingredients you will mix for your preferred color, but a 3 or a 5 gram container should be enough.
- 1 tsp of coconut oil (stimulates hair growth, fights fungal infections),
- 1,5 tsp of beeswax,
- 2 tsp jojoba oil (rich in vitamin C, B and E; strengthens lashes),
- 2 tsp cocoa butter (moisturizes your lashes),
- 2 drops of vitamin E (contains antioxidants and promotes hair growth)
- Activated charcoal (purifying agent and gives a rich color)
Add everything in a bowl, except activated charcoal, melt it in the microwave for maximum 30 seconds and mix well. After that add the activated charcoal little by little (to get the pigment you want), mix well and store in a suited container . If your container is about 35-40 mL in size, then that should be enough.
Makeup for lips
- 2 tsp of coconut oil(nourishes chapped lips, adds gloss),
- 3 tsp of beeswax (commonly used lipstick base, protects your lips),
- 2 tsp of cocoa butter (helps lips retain moisture, adds creamy consistency),
Your personal choice: you can pick from beetroot powder, hibiscus powder, cocoa powder, rose clay powder or mix and match between powders to get the color you like . If your container is about 40 grams in size, then that should be enough.
Optional: 5 drops of essential oil (will make it smooth and add scent).
Noticeably I haven’t mentioned any shimmer or sparkle anywhere, also known as Mica powder. I personally wouldn’t suggest using Mica powder, yes it is natural (it is a mineral) and is safe for most skins, but the dangerous part is inhaling it. Because the powder is still a mineral but in tiny sharp pieces that can do harm to your lungs [4, 5]. For more we have a great blog on this topic HERE.
