What I love about this handmade cream eyeshadow is that it contains no scary chemicals or preservatives. However, like all makeup, you’ll want to discard it after three months and start with a fresh batch. Always use clean hands and applicators when applying to help avoid bacteria being introduced into your makeup.
Handmade Cream Eyeshadow Recipe
8 White Beeswax Pastilles
1 teaspoon Refined Shea Butter
24 drops (approximately .75ml) Refined Jojoba Oil
120 drops (approximately 3.75ml) Vegetable Glycerin
12 drops Vitamin E Oil
2 teaspoons Ultramarine Violet Pigment Powder (or you choice of oxide or ultramarine pigments or combination of Cosmetic Mica Pigment Powder and Titanium Dioxide)
1/4 teaspoon Cosmetic Pearl Mica Powder
Start by melting your beeswax pastilles and shea butter in a glass measuring cup in the microwave for 1 – 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Then, using a different pipette for each ingredient, add the glycerin, jojoba oil and Vitamin E to the wax and shea butter.
Next measure out the pigment powder and mica and stir add to the liquid mixture. Stir well, then scoop into your empty eye shadow container. For best results wait a day before using.
To use, apply a small amount to eyelids and spread across lid. Apply more or less to get your desired look. You may have to experiment a bit to get your perfect shade.
