We makeup lovers spend so much money on buying 100s of different makeup products, don’t we?
I have just realized that instead of buying all those expensive makeup products from the market, we can DIY most of them by ourselves with the ingredients available at our home! And that is what I am going to share with you all today.
Furthermore, these DIY makeup products are completely free of chemicals and hence, you can gift it to a teenager who is just starting out with makeup or to your young son/daughter/sibling who shows interest in destroying your makeup stash..
Just give them their own set of DIY makeup products that are inexpensive (they are made with ingredients available in your kitchen, duh!) and are chemical free so they would not hurt their delicate skin.

6 DIY Natural Homemade Makeup Products To Try
1. DIY Natural Bronzer / Contour Powder
Finding the perfect bronzing or contouring shade for your skin tone can sometimes be a really annoying task because certain contouring or bronzing products end up looking either too warm or too greyish on the skin!
If you have ever faced any such problem, then you should try this DIY natural bronzer / contouring powder that can be customized according to your skin tone!
Here is how to make DIY Natural Bronzer / Contour Powder at home..
You will need..
- 1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder
- 2 teaspoons Cinnamon Powder
- 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon Nutmeg Powder
- 10-15 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Adjust the ingredients according to the colour/intensity of the bronzer/contour powder you want. Place the mixture in an empty pan or compact powder case and spread it evenly. The lavender essential oil will help to bind all the dry ingredients together.
Once you have spread it evenly, put a cling wrap on top of the powder and use the back of the spoon to press down the surface and make it appear smoother.
2. DIY Kajal with Almonds
If you are an Indian then most probably, you already know 10000s of easy methods to make natural kajal at home. But here is a unique one that I recently came to know about!
For this natural homemade kajal recipe, You need –
Roast the organic almonds in a saucepan (without any ghee/oil) until they have turned completely black. Let them cool for a while then grind them in a mixer to obtain a very fine powder. Mix a few drops of olive oil or castor oil with the powder to make an extremely thick paste and your kajal will be ready!

Tinted lip balms give a subtle hint of colour to your lips and keep them moisturized throughout the day!

Here are the ingredients you require for DIY tinted lip balm :-
- 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 tablespoon Beeswax

Melt the oil, beeswax and cocoa butter through a double boiler process. Add a teaspoon of Pigment or beetroot juice (increase the quantity to get the desired shade) to the mixture and stir well until the colour is completely mixed with the liquid.
Transfer the mixture to a lip balm container / empty twist up tube while it is still hot.
