DIY Natural Eyeshadow Recipe #1


  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon cornstarch arrowroot powder
  • ¼ teaspoon coconut oil, shea butter, or cocoa butter
  • Color Ingredients (see the table below this recipe)


  • Place the cornstarch or arrowroot powder in a bowl or use a mortar and pestle. The more of either ingredient you use will create a lighter shade when mixing with a color ingredient.
  • Add in 1 pinch of your chosen color ingredient, and mix together thoroughly.
  • Test the color on your arm to see if you like the shade. If it is too light, add in slightly more of the color ingredient. Remember, you can always add more but you cannot sift out the color once it has been combined with a binding agent.
  • Stir in the coconut oil or shea butter. This will make the DIY natural eyeshadow creamy and easy to spread.
  • Test the eyeshadow on your arm to make sure it spreads well without being either clumpy or runny. The natural makeup should still have a primarily a powder like consistency.


Shea butter boost collagen production and helps to repair damaged skin. Coconut oil helps repair damaged skin, and boasts a plethora of healing properties.
