Beauty DIY. Make your own BB Cream. YAY. Ok this is so simple lovely people. You take a good quality moisturiser like our Desert Dew Moisturise from our Native Glow skincare collection and you get your mineral foundation powder and foundation brush (like the one in picture). Now you might want to do a small test first to see if your powder and moisturiser mix well before you do more. Don't want to waste that powder. Squirt some moisturiser on the lid of your powder jar and then tap you mineral powder on. I added just a bit more to this after the picture. I wanted you to see the moisturiser underneath. Then start mixing away. It is lovely and you are adding more hydration to your skin as you do this. Hope you give this a try and have some fun. I did. Xx
Who would have thought BB creams have natural alternatives too? I’m not an avid user of BB creams because it doesn’t suit my skin well. Since the DIY cosmetics ingredients of this product are easy to find, this is a must-try!
14. All-Natural Homemade Eyeshadow
Most of the eyeshadows I use on a daily are the neutral tones: browns, creams, and tans. Since these shades are widely used, they are most of the time “out of stock.” In times like this, homemade eyeshadow is my best option.
15. Bronzing Lotion Bars
What’s good about making your own skin care products is to customize them to match your skin 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 it for a DIY cosmetics recipe? Not to mention they have a summery scent!
16. 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 keep moisture, brown sugar to lift dead skin cells, and honey to ward off lip infection.
17. Bath Bombs
18. DIY Body Slimming Wrap Gel
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 do the work.

Makeup remover is pretty easy to DIY and this foolproof recipe is effective and skin loving at the same time. Flat cotton pads, aloe vera water, and virgin olive oil are what make this makeup remover one of the easiest makeup recipe ideas to try.
