Cream shadows and eyeliners are perfect for adding color and hydrating your eyes. This recipe uses shea butter and the vitamin E oil that helps reduce inflammation and increase collagen for the skin. It is perfect for dry or mixed skin. If you have very oily skin, you can stick to the eyeshadow powder.
This recipe also uses cosmetic grade mica powder. The use of cosmetic grade mica powders allows you to customize the colors that will complement your complexion, eyes and hair. Mica powders come in a variety of colors and are economical. Usually, they come in 4 oz. Containers and will last for a while. Once you learn how to make your own eyeshadow and eyeliner, you will never want to buy or use store bought ones again!
Supplies you will need:
1/4 teaspoon beeswax pills 1 tsp shea butter 1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil 1 tsp glycerin 2 teaspoons cosmetic grade mica powder Bamboo skewer Bowl of glass or ceramic Small jar with lid (I use 5 ml containers)
Making eye shadow and eyeliner:
The steps to make the eyeliner and eye shadow are the same. I just used a darker charcoal color for the liner. Choose a color that complements your complexion.
Add the mica powder to the containers. Alternatively, you can add the powders to a larger mixing bowl, but that's more dishes to wash later.
In a larger container, add beeswax and shea butter. Microwave at 10 second intervals until the beeswax and shea butter melt.
Once melted, add the vitamin E oil.
Add the teaspoon of glycerin. Glycerin helps prevent the mixture from hardening too much. At this point, the mixture will thicken slightly and freeze with the addition of glycerin.
Add half of the shea butter mixture to one of your mica powder containers. Mix slowly until combined. The consistency should resemble the glaze.
A little of the cream shade goes a long way. I have olive skin and I used a very small amount and applied it with the tips of my fingers. Just make the shadow of the cream in small batches to keep the ingredients fresh.
The mica powder I used is an iridescent champagne color. I added some peach mica powder to give it a peach-colored tint. I used the coal mica powder as a liner. It's heavy enough not to peel all over the place, but not so heavy as to feel like you're using a ton of makeup.
I use my DIY Natural Blush Y DIY lip stain Also to create natural makeup, it hardly exists. At the end of the day, after washing my eyeshadow cream, my eyelids felt wonderful and soft! No chemicals, no toxins, only pure and natural ingredients that nourish our sensitive skin and make us feel very good.
