Getting Started with Homemade Natural Makeup

Last week I shared about Getting Started with Natural Skincare. Makeup and skincare go hand in hand. Well at least they do for me. I rarely leave the house without some makeup on. Sad, but true! I even put a little on to go to zumba! So it’s a must for me to find natural alternatives! Just like skincare, I’m not perfect 100% of the time. I get lazy and slack off. Well friends I’m using this challenge to help myself get back into the swing of things too.

Just like conventional skincare, conventional makeup contains carcinogens, neurotoxins, DNA damaging chemicals, and have been link have been linked to: increased allergies, cancer, birth defects, developmental and reproductive problems, and more. Plus, conventional makeup can cause our skin to age faster. So I’m saying farewell to the store bought stuff and hello to more natural options.

Below, is a list of of links to Homemade Natural Makeup products I use:

I have loved switching over to natural makeup and getting some of my friends to switch over too! Libby switched over to the natural foundation when she had her baby boy. She didn’t like the thought of him kissing on her face and using the normal store bought foundation with unknown chemicals. She’s loved it ever since!
