DIY Cosmetics | 22 Easy Makeup Recipe Ideas
Have you tried making your own DIY cosmetics? If this is your first time, let me show you how you can easily make DIY cosmetic recipes with ingredients found inside your house. I’ve also recently discovered a few products that may open your eyes to the world of DIY natural skin care and I’ve listed some below so you can create your own natural skin care out of the things from your kitchen pantry. Let’s begin with some easy cosmetic DIY recipes:
If you’re a makeup lover, then I’m pretty sure you love crayons too. Did you know you can create your own non-toxic lipstick out of a box of Crayola? It only needs your crayon of choice and Vaseline, melt them together and voila! You can always add choice oils like sunflower, or coconut oil to add a bit of moisturizing property to it.
2. Smooth Finish DIY Organic Foundation Makeup
If you’re under the sun most of the time, you’ll probably need this DIY cosmetics recipe. It’s a sunscreen and foundation in one pack! Plus, it’s organic so it’s a great deal for women on-the-go!
If you think eye primers are a little bit out of budget for you, then consider this DIY recipe here. It uses ingredients that are already available in your vanity and it works just like the real thing.
This DIY cosmetics list won’t be complete without a DIY eyeshadow and this recipe found here creates such an ingenious product from the packaging to how it performs.
5. DIY Beet Blush and Lip
6. DIY Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Recipe and Lash Conditioner
If you love doing eye makeup as much as I do, you gotta try this DIY cosmetics recipe as a remover! It’s also a safe way to make your lashes healthy and nourished after being coated with mascara.
7. Natural Blush Makeup Recipe
If you’re into powder blushes, here’s an organic alternative for you. Just a few strokes and oh-la-la! #RosyCheeks
Don’t forget to set your look for a lasting beauty! Who would want a makeup meltdown, right? Keep your makeup flawless as it was when you applied it with a setting spray! Looking for additional benefits? It can also be a refresher for a sultry weather and a moisturizer on a cold day. Not bad at all!
You know I’m big on skin care so a DIY moisturizer has to be on this list. Even better here because there is a list of different kinds of recipes, but I have to say my favorite one is a mashed banana on my face, it’s a great moisturizer and skin toner apply as is, or with a mix of honey for some anti-aging property boost!
10. Homemade Loose Face Powder
A good face makeup doesn’t end with a foundation but with a good loose powder to set everything. There’s a lot of high-end and drugstore loose powders available but why not try an organic one.
11. Homemade Bronzer
Honestly, I haven’t mastered the art of bronzers (and highlights!) but I think it’s good to start with a natural one. You’ll probably love contouring even more with this homemade item.
Aiming for a perfect winged detail on your eyes? There’s an organic alternative for you! Just don’t forget to put extra care when applying eye cosmetics, like the eyeliner, ’cause it’s one of the most delicate parts of your face.
13. Seaweed Mascara
Mascaras are actually one of the makeup products that I started to love first. Aside from it’s easy to apply, I also love how it brightens my eyes when I have it on! #LashesOnFleek. That’s why when I learned about this seaweed mascara, I could not help but try it for myself too!
14. DIY BB Cream
Who would have thought that BB creams have natural alternatives too? I’m not an avid user of BB creams ’cause it doesn’t suit my skin well. However, since the DIY cosmetics ingredients of this product are easy to find, this is a must-try!
15. All-Natural Homemade Eyeshadow
Most of the eyeshadows that I use on a daily are the neutral ones: browns, creams, and tans. And since these are widely used shades, I am often greeted with an “out of stock” sign on my fave commercial eyeshadows. In times like this, homemade eyeshadows are my best option.
16. Bronzing Lotion Bars
What’s good about making your own skin care products is the opportunity to customize them according to your needs. Just like these bronzing lotion bars. Aside from their moisturizing benefits, they also act as an insect repellant, sunscreen, and bronzing bar in one. How amazing is that for a DIY cosmetics recipe? Not to mention they have a summery scent!
17. DIY Lip Scrub
Suffering from chapped lips? Then this is the DIY cosmetics recipe you’re looking for. This lip scrub uses coconut oil to retain or improve moisture, brown sugar to lift dead skin cells, and honey to ward off lip infection. For the full recipe, go here.
18. Bath Bombs
I never really thought you can DIY bath bombs, but here are a few recipes that are easy and exciting to make!
Another DIY recipe that’s exciting and fun to make is a body slimming wrap gel. Apply on a body part and cover with a canvas cloth or a cling wrap and let the gel take action.
This organic lotion recipe is perfect for gift giving, I can’t wait to create my own and pack it for my girlfriends, I bet it smells amazing too!
I have to say a makeup remover is pretty easy to DIY and this fool proof recipe is effective and skin loving at the same time. All you need is some flat cotton pads, virgin olive oil, and aloe vera water.
