Weekend Project: Make Your Own Eyeshadow

December 1, 2017 by Alaisha Key
shefinds | beauty

Eyeshadow is one of those makeup musts that can transform a basic touch up into a statement look just like that! But keeping your makeup bag stocked with palettes that fit every occasion from casual to glam can be expensive. What if I were to tell you that there’s a way you can have all the eyeshadow you want in the custom shades you desire for practically nothing? Well, you can! You simply just have to make it yourself, and it’s super easy to do.

You really only need two ingredients: cosmetic mica powder and a powder binder, which you can both be bought in bulk online and at some beauty supply store for the cost of what you’re spending on that deluxe palette.

Once you have the powders, it’s time to apply some of that old color wheel knowledge that you learned way back when. Pick the shade that you want (There are tons of recipes out there!), and mix equal parts of the different powders in a bowl that create the color. Put the mixed powder into a small container such as a round lip balm jar. And that’s it!

But to get the solid finish that you normally see in store bought palettes, transfer the mixed powder to a small container. Add some drops or spray the powder binder to you mix. Grab a paper towel. Find a small object to press down with over the paper towel. Let it dry, and it’s just as good as the store bought eyeshadow!
