Homemade Natural Makeup Recipes (25 Tutorials)

Are you looking for homemade natural makeup recipes that really work? I’ve tested several recipes and I’ve found a few amazing DIY makeup tutorials that I LOVE! I hope you find these recipes and tutorials helpful on your natural living journey! Natural Makeup Recipes: 25 Recipes

I don’t wear makeup that often. When I do wear makeup, I like to use non-toxic makeup made without harsh chemicals.

I have sensitive skin that’s prone to breakouts and when I wear makeup from the drugstore my face can break out pretty bad. Once I stopped wearing makeup I found that my skin stayed clear. I was afraid to wear makeup for a long time but then I did some research and found that natural mineral makeup isn’t harsh and can be worn by people like me with sensitive skin.

I gave it a try and found that my skin does well with natural makeup. Since I don’t wear makeup often I’ve decided to make my own and save money! What I love most about making my own natural makeup is that I know exactly what’s in my makeup. Most of the ingredients used are edible!

Here’s a list of the ingredients I use to make my natural makeup:

Homemade Natural Makeup Recipes

Here’s a list of my favorite homemade natural makeup recipes  and tutorials. I hope you find them helpful on your natural living journey. 🙂

Homemade Foundation

Homemade Mascara

Homemade Eyeliner

Homemade Eyeshadow

Homemade Blush

Homemade Lipstick or Lip Gloss

Homemade Bronzer

Homemade Makeup Remover

I use coconut oil to remove my makeup (you can read my list of reasons I use coconut oil in my bathroom here) but some skin types break out when coconut oil is used on the face. In that case, this 2 ingredient makeup remover recipe from my friend Lauren of Empowered Substance works great and is gentle for those who can’t use coconut oil.

    Hi Tiffany,

    I don’t usually have enough time to make homemade natural recipes for beauty and skin care because of work. I always use beauty products but I always make sure that they contain natural ingredient so that it won’t be harsh to the skin. However, I really find your blog very interesting and informative that it makes me create homemade recipes. I will definitely give these recipes a try. Thank your for sharing.

    Seems very interesting, but isn’t it too much work to whip up your own make-up? How long do they last? Thank you for sharing, though. I can try them out for myself, I guess.
