How to Make Homemade Eyeshadow?



Are you tired of checking and reading the labels on cosmetic products? Well, I am. So, I decided to search new homemade eyeshadow recipes. This way, I can be sure of the ingredients I am applying on my eye lid.


First, let’s look at the harmful ingredients you can find in almost all commercial make-up products. After that I will give you my secret amazing homemade eyeshadow recipe. You will love it.

One of the most harmful ingredients in commercial eyeshadows is SLS or sodium lauryl. This ingredient can lead to cancer. Also, brands tend to use petroleum products in eyeshadows and other make-up products. Petroleum products act as stabilisers. And these stabilisers are the ingredients that keep your make-up product intact.

For example, your eyeshadow will stay one piece in its box. However, these ingredients are extremely harmful to your health. Also, synthetic colouring ingredients can be harmful to your body.


But don’t worry. In our natural homemade eyeshadow recipe, we will offer natural and organic colouring ingredients. And, these ingredients will be easy to find materials. Aluminium related ingredients can also be found in commercial eyeshadows. But our homemade natural cosmetic product will be free from all these harmful products.

Enjoy your homemade eyeshadow.

You can apply homemade eyeshadow with a brush or with your fingers. I recommend the fingers. Because, since your new eyeshadow is all natural and has no stabilisers, it may be harder to apply with brush. Use your finger tips and apply the eyeshadow. You can clean the excess with your fingers as well.
