What I love about this cream eyeshadow recipe 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. Ready to learn how to make cream eyeshadow? Check out my cream eyeshadow recipe below!

Mineral makeup trends. Creating your own personal color style.

Mineral makeup has become the new alternative to traditional store bought cosmetics. Not only are major cosmetic companies jumping on the bandwagon, but small businesses are forming everyday creating their own handmade versions of eye shadows, foundations, and lip colors as a natural alternative to chemical laden cosmetic brands.

From explaining the basic ingredients that go into the recipe to creating that first eye shadow, Point of Interest gives you recipes and tips for creating eye shadows in a variety of basic colors along with a run down of the basic cost of supplies to get started. There are also recipes for making foundations, lip colors and more. To get started on making your own eye shadows, visit this page. Links to the follow up tutorials are listed in the comment section.

Aside of the mineral makeup basics, there are also things like primers and sealants to help your makeup look it’s best and stay put throughout the day. You can experiment with creating these type of products as well or you can purchase them from other companies who specialize in handcrafted mineral makeup. The All Natural Face makes a Vegan Eye Shadow Primer that is applied to your lid before applying your shadow and eye liner. Not only does it help your shadow to stay put but it also gives you more freedom to blend your shadows and build up a nice bold color. Their Seal It Eye Shadow/Eye Liner Sealant is a natural alternative to keeping your eye shadow and liner smudge proof and in place all day while giving your shadows a foiled, wet look. Both products are excellent. My favorite eye shadow shade from The All Natural Face is Lemon Ice. It’s lovely as a highlight color on my brow bone with a pretty shade of pink on my lids.
