What Ingredients You Can Use To Make Natural Makeup In 2021
Growing trends around sustainability and homemade products are as big as ever in the natural makeup ‘game’. While both hot topics have been gaining popularity over the last decade or so, the last year has given new life to the DIY genre. While many products claim to be all-natural and sustainable, it can be hard to navigate the long list of ingredients, and that’s assuming they are all listed.
There are lots of ways you can create the products currently in your makeup bag from the items in your pantry. Making your own at home gives you the ability to put your own stamp on the product that you use, and to be certain of each ingredient.
First, let’s talk trends. Every year top brands advertise their hot, new products made with trending ingredients. Remember when activated charcoal took over everything?! These trends reflect what consumers are looking for, and what is happening in the world. Think of Dove’s ‘Love Your Body’ campaign, which echoed the conversation around body image and the unrealistic expectations in the beauty industry. For 2021, sustainability is the name of the game. We’re seeing natural, sustainable ingredients like aloe and foods high in vitamin C, like oranges and papaya.
Consumers don’t have to become full-blown vegan or zero-waste warriors to participate in the global green movement. It can be as simple as changing the way we shop - fill your reusable containers with natural ingredients at bulk stores. Learn about where natural products come from; a common ingredient in makeup is wax and there are many great vegan, plant-based options. Think about every piece of waste before you throw it away - can it be repurposed to hold your handcrafted lipstick? The idea is to be more mindful of what you use, and where it comes from.

You can absolutely slay the winged eye with a homemade liner. Aloe, one of those hot trends, is a suggested ingredient for eyeliner along with charcoal and shea butter.
Give your peepers a fierce pop of color with eyeshadow made from pantry items like beetroot powder, spirulina, and indigo powder. You can even use natural elements from your garden, like hibiscus flowers. And, if you love all that glitters, add some mica powder for some shimmer!
Because the eyes are one of the most sensitive places on our bodies, it’s important to do your homework beforehand to find out what is safe, and what to avoid.
Finding the right coverage for your exact skin tone and problem spots can be challenging, so it may seem overwhelming to think about making your own foundation. However, there are many tips and tricks with natural products that can help you achieve the same (and dare I say, better) results as the store-bought kind.
Some of the most popular ingredients for homemade foundations and blushes - powder and liquid - are arrowroot powder, kaolin clay, cacao, aloe vera, shea butter, and Ceylon cinnamon. A quick google search will bring you lots of recipes and ideas!
Dark spots and skin are something we all face at one point or another. Lightening the skin with the right items will make your skin look and feel happier and healthier. The folks at https://www.kryzuy.com/how-to-lighten-skin/ suggest using fresh ingredients that you probably already have at home - oranges, yogurt, honey, cucumber, and aloe. All of these ingredients have a variety of incredible benefits and can be easily incorporated into your makeup and skincare recipes.
From creams to balms to stains, the possibilities for luscious lips are endless. You’ve possibly thought, many of the ingredients listed above are used in the lip products you currently use. So you’re one step closer to finding the right mix. But how do you zhoosh it up? While it can seem counterintuitive, one of the “best-kept secrets” of homemade makeup gurus is pigment powder. With options in the sexiest of reds to the most sparkly of glitters, you can dial your base ingredients up a few notches.
Finding the right mix might not happen with the first recipe. Don’t get discouraged. Think of how many samples Sephora gives to their customers? There’s a reason: to help consumers find the product that is right for them. If your first round doesn’t work out, offer it to a friend and try again. Consider what products in your cupboard work best for your skin now and create a back-to-basics version. And, remember to always do a spot test on your skin when trying a new product. All right, now go, have fun and slay the day!
