Taking The Huge Step That’s Actually Really Small – The DIY Makeup Series

September 14, 2011


When you start creating homemade beauty products, you realize there’s a whole world of opportunities as to what you can create. Many have already realizes how easy it is to make  scrubs, face masks, lip balms, deodorant, lotions, shampoo and bath salts. But I have noticed that only a few start to make their own makeup. It seems like a very big step, somehow.

But let me tell you something.

It’s really easy.

Also, it’s so much fun, that once you get started, you’ll never want to stop.

I had planned on writing a post about making mineral makeup at home. But then I realized I have waaay to much to say. So I decided to split it up. Into four parts. And the grande finale will be a giveaway where you get to chance to win some homemade makeup – personalized just for you!

To make mineral makeup you’ll need to make a few purchases online to get started. More on what you’ll need in the next post, but let’s start with some even easier homemade makeup using ingredients that you’ll find in your local store – or forest.

You know how after eating heaps of blueberries your fingers and lips are all purple? And it doesn’t really come off? Do you see where I’m getting at….?

Oh yes, there are loads of berries and fruit that you can use to colour your face – lips, cheeks, eyelids or even eyelashes. Basically, the colour the berry(/fruit/veggie) is, that is the colour it will stain – revolutionary, huh? You can also make a mixture of berries to get the colour you like. Try beets, pomegranate, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, strawberries, cherries, blueberries… Or anything you can think of. It doesn’t hurt to try you know! As a plus, these are all filled with vitamins and antioxidants that are only good for your skin.

A few months back, I posted a video about using blackberries as makeup. Let me do it again. Take this as an inspiration, and go wild.

Here’s another couple of links where you can get inspiration:
