My First Attempt At DIY Makeup

So last night I decided that I wanted to play chemist.  I ran out of my typical Maybelline Foundation and thought it was time to try to explore the next phase of my chemical free life.  Make up!  and boy did I make a mess.

I never realized how bad makeup is for you with the multiple amounts of chemicals.  How could something that makes you feel so beautiful be so bad.  Not only that, but what kind of harm is it doing to your skin?  Well one thing led to another and by the end of the night I had  foundation powder, blush, mascara, eye liner, eye shadow, dry shampoo, regular, shampoo, and conditioner.  I can tell that some of these recipes still need some tweaking (at least for me), but are definitely a great start.  If you want to get a hold of some of the recipes please feel free to visit my Pinterest Board.  As I perfect these recipes I will start posting the recipes that work best for me.

So the preliminary results are in;  Here is my before and after from this morning.
