It may come as a shock to many people, but I have not worn makeup in almost 9 years. In fact, the handful of times I tried, my skin broke out so terribly it was red and hurt for days. So I haven’t worn makeup again. However, I decided right then and there that if I ever wore makeup again it would have to be natural and homemade.

I have tried several different natural makeups, but they all end with the same result – red, blotchy, irritated skin. And with my host of allergies and sensitivities, I finally just gave up altogether. That was until I realized I could make my own natural makeup at home.

If you’re changing your habits this year for healthier ones, why not change out your makeup too for homemade all-natural recipes too!

Like with most things, I was skeptical about being able to make makeup at home. I thought they would involve elusive ingredients that while they might be healthier, are usually much pricier. So living on a budget, the “no makeup” route was definitely more in our budget.

However, I was genuinely surprised that most of the recipes I found only used a handful of ingredients that could be used in several different products. And since many of them were all-natural herbs, you can even find most of the in your own kitchen! Who knew?!
