To all girls (and some guys) out there, isn’t it expensive to buy make up products from renowned brands & stores sometimes?
With a budget to keep, it gets devastating especially when you run out of that trusty lippie of yours. Not to worry though!
If you’re adventurous enough, try this at home and you won’t need to spend hundreds of Ringgit just to get one or two items. Spend below RM 30 and make your own desired colours! Mix & match as many colours as you want! These DIY tips will change your mind about going to the make up stores or even drug stores after watching these videos below.
Let’s start with how to make eye shadow:
It only takes a few ingredients to make your own customized eye shadow; FDA approved pigmented colour powder & rubbing alcohol, mix them together, let it sit for awhile & VOILA! Your wearable eye shadow is ready to be used!
How to make your own cheek stain:
Yes, ladies, it’s possible! Make your own cheek stain using a main ingredient, COLOURED CHAP STICKS! Make sure you get the ones that are non-toxic. You’ll need vegetable glycerine, regular glycerine, tinted chap sticks & food colouring (optional). Simple, easy to make & oh-so-cheap!
All this colours can make a girl go crazy! This video is about how to make DIY lipsticks – with CRAYONS! Yes, non-toxic crayons, that is. You will need non-toxic crayons, chap sticks/lip balms/vaseline/coconut oil and containers to keep your colours. After warming everything up, mixing it & letting it cool off completely, you’re good to go! Give your own palette of lip colours a name! 😉
Basically, you get a bottle of top coat nail polish or you can just reuse the ones that you already have or don’t want anymore, mix it with scraped off eye shadow powder, shake the bottle well and your personalized DIY nail polish is born!
