These quick and easy tips will help you make the most of your pantry while healing your skin from inside out!
1. All-Natural Homemade Foundation
It’s actually hard to look for a powder foundation that doesn’t end up cakey or feels sticky after hours of wearing it. Good thing is, there are ingredients fresh from your pantry that offer better coverage for your face. Don’t worry about the foundation shade ’cause it’s adjustable too!
2. Smooth Finish DIY Organic Foundation Makeup

3. DIY Beet Blush and Lip
4. 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.
5. 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
6. Witch Hazel Makeup Setting Spray
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!
7. 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?
8. 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.
9. Homemade Nontoxic Eyeliner
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.
10. 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!
11. Natural and Nontoxic Black Eyeliner And Mascara
Here’s recipe #2 for your black eyeliners! You’ll surely never run out of eyeliners after this. And because we all love hardworking makeup products, this also doubles as a mascara.
12. 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!
13. 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.
14. DIY Mineral Makeup
If you’re a bit hesitant on using food products on your face, there are also mineral makeups that are worth the try. Rest assured, these makeups are chemical-free and have no intimidating fragrances.
15. Homemade Natural Blush
If you’re not blessed with naturally rosy cheeks, do yourself a favor by enhancing them the organic way. The best thing to do it? Have a stroke of homemade blush on the apples of your cheeks!
16. Berry Lip Stain
Another home remedy for your lips is a berry lip stain. Aside from the color that it leaves on your lips, it nourishes them the healthy way.
17. Hibiscus Blush
Perfecting a pigmented, long-staying, and natural blush may be a tough job, but with this DIY cosmetics recipe, a blush just gets even better! Just by looking at its color, a dab will not be enough to try it out.
18. DIY Foundation And Bronzer Toxic Free
Foundation and bronzer in one jar? This recipe will give that 2-in-1 makeup to you! Again, it’s toxic-free so let your worries fly away!
19. Homemade Red Lipstick
Since wearing a red lipstick is a trend and a lifesaver of today’s women (on a stressful day), why don’t you pair it with this DIY lip gloss? You can never go wrong with the extra sheen.
20. Homemade Natural Translucent Powder
Translucent powder is used as a final powder on a face makeup. It also gives a matte finish on your face after application. If you can’t find the right translucent powder at beauty counters, your pantry may have it for you!
21. 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!
22. 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.
