6 All Natural Make Up Recipes For A Chemical Free Makeup Routine

By Ashmita, 28 Sep 2016

While the cosmetic industry is thriving on chemicals, to imagine what the chemicals in these products would be doing to our skin is quite scary and although many of us have started using herbal skin care products which promise low or no chemicals, their prices surely burn a hole in our pockets. So we bring to you some of most amazing kitchen hacks for making up your own make up products. These quick and easy DIYs will not only give you some results as good as some drugstore makeup product but they will also heal your skin inside out.  

1. Homemade Eye-Liner

Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil

  • Aloe Vera gel

  • Activated charcoal

Method:

  • Take two tsp of coconut oil, four tsp of aloe vera gel and one or two capsules of activated charcoal. Mix all the ingredients together.

  • Store it in air tight container in a cool and dry place where there is minimum exposure to light.

  • Use a fresh and clean brush to use it making sure you don’t leave a chance for bacteria to enter your product.

Note: You may also use cocoa powder in place of charcoal for a brown eye liner.

2. Homemade Eye Shadow

Ingredients:

For Pink:

  • Arrowroot powder- ½ tsp

  • Dried beet powder- ½ tsp

  • Cocoa powder- 1/8 tsp

  • Shea butter- ½ tsp

For Golden Brown:

  • Arrowroot powder- ½ tsp
  • Nutmeg- ¾ tsp
  • Turmeric- ¼ tsp
  • Shea butter- ½ tsp

 Method:

  • Always start with putting ¼ - ½ tsp of arrowroot powder. The more of it you use, the lighter would be the color of your eye shadow.

  • Mix other powders/spices with the arrowroot powder according to the color you want to create.

  • Mix Shea butter with the powdered mixture using the back of your brush. The butter holds the eye shadow on your eye lid and provides a moisturized look.

3. Mascara

Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil

  • Aloe Vera gel

  • Shea butter

  • Bees wax

  • Activated charcoal

Method:

  • Take a saucepan and put together 1 tsp of coconut oil, 1tsp of Shea butter, 1 and a half tsp of bees wax and 4 tsp of aloe vera gel. Mix the ingredients together and heat them until completely melted.

  • Mix the heated ingredients with the activated charcoal and remove from the stove.

  • Place the mixture in a plastic bag and allow it cool for some time.

  • Move the liquid to one corner of the plastic bag. Cut a small hole at the corner and pour the mascara into a sterilized long tube. Use a helping hand if you can so that you don’t spill the mixture around.

Note: The homemade mascara lasts for 3-4 months at maximum, therefore, dispose it off after then or if it starts to give a foul smell anytime before that.

4. Foundation Powder

Ingredients:

  • Arrowroot powder

  • Either one or a combination of: Cocoa powder, Ground Cinnamon, Nutmeg

  • Olive oil/ Almond oil

Method:

  • Always start with a base of arrowroot powder. Use must use 1 tsp of it for dark skin tone and 1 tbsp of it for light skin tone.

  • Use either of cocoa powder, ground cinnamon and nutmeg or a combination of all three according to the desired shade you want to have.

  • If compact foundation is what you’re looking for then drop wise add olive oil/ almond oil into the powdered mixture until you get the desired texture and compact it.

  • Use a clean brush to apply your homemade natural foundation.

5. Blush

Ingredients:

  • Arrowroot powder

  • Cocoa powder

  • Hibiscus powder

Method:

  • Mix ½ tsp of arrowroot powder, ½ tsp of cocoa powder and ½ tsp of hibiscus powder. You can always alter the quantities according to the shade you require. Start with less and then add more of it.

  • After mixing all the ingredients well, store it in an air-tight container and store in cool place.

6. Lip Gloss

Ingredients:

  • Shea butter (cocoa butter for chocolate lip gloss)

  • Coconut oil/ almond oil

  • Remove from heat and 10 tsp. of your essential oil, 1 tsp. of hibiscus powder and 1 tsp. of Vitamin E.
