HumblebeeAndMe.com creator Marie Rayma found herself eating healthfully, but clueless about how to clean up her beauty regimen. So she started making her own makeup and skin care real makeup and skin care: bright lipsticks, quality mineral powders, high-performance eyeliners, and masks and cleansers that yield results.
Make It Up shares the foolproof recipes Marie has learned through years of trial, error, and testing. We all deserve to know what we put on our bodies, and to have products that fit our exact needs. No more messing around at beauty counters. Homemade makeup allows you to make just what you need, and want, when you need it. Make It Up will show you how.
The book starts by looking at natural and effective ingredients available in most kitchens, online, or at local food stores. These awesome oils, butters, clays, and minerals will replace petroleum products, artificial colors, and lab-created mystery fragrances that have untold effects on our bodies. From there Make It Up dives into starter projects like lip balm, lotions, and face masks, then onto foundations, lipsticks, eyeliners, blush, bronzers, and more. Make It Up provides information on each ingredient used to help the reader understand its strengths and benefits. Individual products can be tailored for individual needs from swapping out ingredients not suitable for sensitive skin to whipping perfect matches based on complexion.
With easy-to-follow instruction, Make It Up provides 40+ essential cosmetics and skin care projects that will replace just about everything you put on your face and body with handmade, high-performance, healthy alternatives.
