    5 Natural Handmade Eye Shadows…Plus, How to Make Your Own!

    If you’re worried about exactly what goes into the beauty products you’re buying at your local drugstore, or if you’ve got special allergies or skin issues, DIY-ing your own items is an awesome option. This week, we’re covering one of our favorite types of makeup: eye shadow!

    Colorful powder is a great way to make your eyes pop and accentuate the shades that you’re wearing. Because eye shadow goes on such a sensitive area of your skin, it’s nice to know exactly what you’re putting on there. Check out our favorite DIY recipe for natural shadow below, and then read on for five of our favorite handmade picks!

    CHARCOAL SHADOW

    Supplies:

    • Activated charcoal capsules (available at drugstores)
    • A small glass jar with a tight lid
    • Eye shadow brush, preferably with one thin end for liner and one rounded end for smoky effects

    Step one: Open up a charcoal capsule and pour into the small glass jar. Open up another one, and another and another, until you fill your jar about halfway. Store extra charcoal caps.

    Step two: Just open the jar, flip the cap upside down and dab up some charcoal from the lid. Try mixing with a bit of water to paint on as a liner, but you can get a nice liner effect without water by using a thin brush.

    Step three: You can also try powdered spirulina for a green shadow and powdered mica for shimmer. Mix them for different effects. (Source: yumuniverse.com)
