Are you tired of using conventional makeup products filled with chemicals? Do you want a more natural alternative that is easy on your skin and budget-friendly? Look no further! In this article, I will share some amazing homemade makeup recipes that you can easily make using ingredients from your own kitchen.

Natural Makeup: A Cheaper and Healthier Option

While there are natural alternatives available in the market, they can be expensive. The cheapest and easiest way to have natural makeup is to make it yourself. Plus, you might already have all the ingredients you need in your kitchen!

Prioritize Your Skin: The Key to Natural Beauty

Before we dive into the makeup recipes, let's talk about skincare. Taking care of your skin is just as important as the makeup you use. There are natural options available that can leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

One of my personal favorites is the oil cleansing method. It uses natural oils to balance your skin and give it a healthy glow. Combine it with raw honey in the morning or a sugar scrub made from equal parts sugar and natural oil for even better results. You can also try natural microdermabrasion using baking soda to make your skin look younger.

With proper skincare, your skin will be naturally healthy, and most of the time, you won't even need to wear makeup. However, when you do want to enhance your natural beauty , here are some homemade makeup recipes for you to try.

Natural Foundation: Create Your Perfect Shade

Making your own foundation might seem like a daunting task, but it's actually quite simple. You'll need a base of arrowroot powder and zinc oxide (or cornstarch), and then you can customize the shade by adding cocoa powder and finely ground cinnamon to match your skin tone. Store it in a jar or an old powder container for easy application.

For an even smoother texture and radiant skin, try adding gold mica powder to your foundation. It will give your skin a natural "glow" and make it look flawless.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons zinc oxide (or arrowroot powder)
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon gold mica dust
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp of desired natural clay powder (optional)
  • Up to 1 teaspoon finely ground cocoa powder to get the desired color
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of translucent mica powder for oily skin

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients until you achieve your desired color and coverage.
  2. Zinc oxide provides coverage and a matte finish.
  3. Colored mica powders, natural clays, and cocoa powder give the foundation its color. Add them slowly, testing on your inner arm to find your perfect shade.
  4. Store the mixture in a small glass jar with a lid.

Note: If you prefer a simpler version, you can use just arrowroot powder (or white cosmetic clay), cocoa powder, and cinnamon powder. While this will create a completely natural and edible foundation, it might not stay on as long as the version containing zinc oxide and mica powder.

Natural Bronzer/Blush: Add Some Color to Your Cheeks

Creating your own bronzer and blush is as easy as making the foundation. You can use the same base of arrowroot powder and customize the color by adding more cocoa powder and cinnamon for a darker shade. For a pink tone, you can try powdering dried beetroot or hibiscus flowers and finely powdering them. Store your homemade bronzer or blush in a shaker makeup container or an old compact.

Natural Eye Liner and Shadow: Emphasize Your Beautiful Eyes

Making your own eye shadow and eyeliner is not only fun but also a safer option. Mix cocoa powder for brown shades, spirulina for green shades, and arrowroot for lighter shades of eye shadow. For eyeliner, use a tiny bit of cocoa powder mixed with coconut oil, or activated charcoal mixed with whipped shea butter. Be cautious while applying these near your eyes. Store the eye shadow in an old container and apply it with your finger or a slightly damp brush.

For a smoother eyeliner, mix equal parts coconut oil and shea butter with activated charcoal for a black hue. This can also be done with cocoa powder for a brown hue.

Natural Mascara: Define Your Lashes Naturally

If you prefer a natural mascara, you can easily make one at home. Mix a few drops of Aloe Vera Gel, a couple of drops of Vitamin E oil, and a pinch of activated charcoal in a small bowl. Adjust the quantities according to your preference. Apply it with a clean mascara brush or a used Bass Toothbrush.

Natural Makeup Remover: Gentle and Effective

Say goodbye to makeup removers filled with harsh chemicals. You probably already have natural makeup removers in your home. Some options include olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil. These oils not only remove makeup but also nourish and moisturize your skin.

Supplements for Healthy Skin

Remember, what you put into your body is just as important as what you put on it. For healthy skin, consider including these supplements in your routine:

  • Fermented Cod Liver Oil: Rich in Vitamins A, D, and K, Omega-3s, and antioxidants, which are great for the skin.
  • Gelatin: A pre-cursor for collagen, it promotes stronger and smoother hair, skin, and nails.
  • Magnesium: An anti-inflammatory nutrient often lacking in many diets. Topical application of Magnesium Oil can improve skin health.

Taking care of your skin from the inside out will help you achieve radiant and healthy-looking skin.
