Vegan All-in-One Beauty Stick Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.25 oz. candelilla wax
.75 oz. babassu oil
.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil)
.25 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.2 oz. (lip + eye safe) coral mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) cellini blue mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) super pearly white mica

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my all-in-one beauty stick recipe.

Begin by weighing out the candelilla wax and babassu oil into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat in the microwave at 40% power until melted. Alternately you may also use a double boiler. Take care removing your melted ingredients from the microwave as the glass will be hot. I recommend using a towel or pot holder when handling.

Next, weigh out the fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil) and rose wax. (The rose wax gives this all-in-one beauty stick recipe a beautiful light rose fragrance!) Mix these ingredients into the melted candelilla wax and babassu oil until thoroughly combined and the rose wax has melted.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh out and add the mica powders. Mix well so the mica is fully incorporated into the makeup base.

Now slowly and carefully pour your rose scented all-in-one beauty stick into a container or containers of your choice. I used the 1.5 oz. brown paperboard push up tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging. (I poured mine a little too hot and it caused a hole down the center. You can avoid this by practicing patience and pouring at a cooler temperature. My bad.)

Once your vegan all-in-one beauty sticks have cooled, simply cap and label them as desired. You download my free PDF printable labels for my rose scented all-in-one beauty sticks here. (These labels are free for personal use only.)

To use your all-in-one beauty sticks, simply apply to eyelids, cheeks, or lips as desired. You can further blend the color with a makeup sponge if you like.

If you are creating your own DIY all-in-one beauty sticks to sell, there’s a lot of important information you should be aware of in order to be FDA compliant in the USA. You can find information on the FDA website regarding the use of color additives in cosmetics here.

In addition, mica-based pearlescent pigments and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved at this time. The FDA however is currently exercising discretionary enforcement of these color additives while they are in discussion over regulatory status and safety. You can find further discussion on this at Marie Gale’s blog here.

For help labeling your vegan all-in-one beauty sticks, I recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Plant based makeup is the new trend. However, you don't have to spend a fortune investing in premiere brand natural cosmetics to get it. Instead, try making your own! Simply start with a few natural ingredients and add micas to create your own custom colored makeup sticks!

Ingredients:

.25 oz. candelilla wax
.75 oz. babassu oil
.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.25 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.15 oz. (eye + lip safe) coral mica
.15 oz. (eye + lip safe) copper sparkle mica

If you’d like to create your own homemade plant based makeup products to sell, then you’ll need to following FDA guidelines for labeling and permissible ingredients. You should be aware that glitter, mica-based pearlescent pigments, and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved for cosmetics at this time. The FDA however is currently exercising discretionary enforcement of these color additives while they are in discussion over regulatory status and safety.

DIY Unicorn Eyeshadow Ingredients & Materials:

I used the 10 ml black plastic jars with 3 dividers with black window lids from SKS Bottle & Packaging for my DIY unicorn shadow to keep the colors separate. However, you can mix all of the colors individually then fill an undivided jar in three sections of color. This will allow you to swipe all of the colors onto one brush at the same time to use as a highlighter.

You’ll also need an assortment of eye safe micas, fine silver rainbow cosmetic glitter and sericite to create your colors. I purchased these ingredients from Brambleberry.

And, to keep the colors together when pressed, improve glide and staying power, I also used isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and dimethicone.

If you’d like your DIY unicorn eyeshadow scented, you’ll also need a skin safe fragrance oil. I used a rose quartz fragrance oil, also from Brambleberry, however you can use any fragrance oil you prefer. I recommend a skin safe fragrance oil with no vanilla content and that’s mostly clear without a heavy yellow cast.

Have everything you need? Let’s get started! You’ll find the mineral makeup recipes for each of the colors for your DIY unicorn eyeshadow below. I used .15CC scoops for all of the dry measurements indicated and a graduated transfer pipette to measure out the liquid ingredients in drops.

Pink Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
16 scoops rose pearl mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Purple Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
8  scoops mauvey gem mica
8 scoops amethyst purple mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Blue Shimmer Eyeshadow Ingredients:

8 scoops sericite
16  scoops cellini blue mica
8 scoops super pearly white mica
20 scoops fine silver rainbow eco-glitter

12 drops isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
16 drops dimethicone
5 drops rose quartz fragrance oil

Instructions:

Begin by cutting out a small piece of cardboard that fits into the cavities of your container. You can do this by tracing a circle around the jar, then cutting it out slightly inside the circle you drew so that it fits inside the jar. Then cut the circle into three equal parts that match the cavities of your container. Trim them down slightly until each fits inside a cavity.

 Next, you’ll make the eyeshadow colors for your DIY unicorn eyeshadow. To do this, start with your first color recipe. Begin with the sericite, adding 8 scoops of the ingredient to a small dish or shallow bowl. (My scoops were not exact. I used slightly rounded scoops for each ingredient.)

Learn how to make your own scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow. This fun trio of scented pressed eyeshadows offers lasting pastel color and shimmer that’s perfect for eyes. Once you’ve mastered these colors, be sure to try out your own custom DIY unicorn eyeshadow in custom colors and scents!

Follow with the micas, then mix well using a toothpick or other small utensil.

Now add the glitter and remix until all of the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the shadow.

Once you’ve mixed the dry ingredients, use a dropper to add the rubbing alcohol, dimethicone and the fragrance oil. Mix well with a toothpick until the eyeshadow is evenly coated with the wet ingredients.

Fill one of the cavities of your eyeshadow pan with the shadow, piling it into a mound. Gently press the shadow down with your finger just until the eyeshadow is about even with the top of the jar.

Next, wrap one of the small pieces of cardboard you cut out in a piece of thin linen or wax paper.

Press the wrapped cardboard on top of the shadow into your cavity with as much force as possible, then gently remove the wrapped cardboard. Your first color is now complete!

Simply follow the same process with your remaining scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow colors until your tri-color eyeshadow pan is full.

Let your scented unicorn eyeshadow rest overnight. They’re then ready to use the next day!

To use your scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow, apply as desired with an eyeshadow brush over your favorite eyeshadow primer for long lasting shimmer and color.

Can I sell my eyeshadows?

If you are wanting to sell your scented DIY unicorn eyeshadow palettes, there are a few things you should be aware of first. Currently glitter, mica-based pearlescent pigments, and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved for cosmetics.

The FDA is currently exercising discretionary enforcement of these color additives while they are in discussion over regulatory status and safety. You can find further discussion on this at Marie Gale’s blog here. Marie Gale is author of the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, which I highly recommend for anyone selling handcrafted cosmetic and skin care products.

While this glitter is non-toxic, it’s important to note that this is not a cosmetic glitter and therefore it should not be used on lips and eyes. Instead, stick to applying this DIY unicorn body glitter to your body and hair. (Don’t want to make it? You can shop for pre-made cosmetic unicorn glitter mixes on Etsy here.)

As this glitter is larger than cosmetic glitter, it can cause damage if used around eyes or on eyelids. So while this DIY unicorn body glitter may look fabulous on your face, it’s not worth the risk of getting glitter in your eyes! (I got a speck of glitter in my eye on accident in the midst of painting and applying glitter to unicorns and it actually tore my contact lens.)

Made James and I #dinner tonight with one of the meals from #HelloFresh!

A post shared by Soap Deli News Blog (@soapdeli) on

I cooked this New York Strip Steak with Truffled Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans Amandine for James & I from my Hello Fresh subscription. (James usually cooks.) If you sign up for HelloFresh here as a new subscriber you’ll get $40 off your first delivery.

I also discovered a great new easy non-toxic no scrub shower cleaner. Simply combine ½ cup Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds Biodegradable Cleaner with ½ cup vinegar in a spray bottle & gently mix. Spray on your surface, wait several minutes then rinse! Voila! You can also use a couple tablespoons of Sal Suds for an average load of laundry, dilute with water to sponge down countertops or to mop your floor, or even mix with baking soda to make a powerful scouring agent for bathtubs and sinks. (You can buy Sal Suds here.)

Additionally I also learned about the AirBrush app (available for both the iPhone and Android phones.) This amazing and easy to use app lets you take years off your appearance or simply adds makeup! This photo was retouched using the AirBrush app. I was wearing ZERO makeup in this selfie photo. All of the makeup was added using the app. You can get the app here.

That’s all for this week! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend filled with many fun and creative discoveries!
