Overview

Discover the Luxury of Homemade Cosmetics!
Making your own cosmetics and skin care products has become a huge trend. Handcrafting cosmetics is not just a great and fascinating hobby but offers many advantages over retail products. Creating your own makeup products puts you in the driver's seat and lets you decide what colors and shades your makeup and lipstick should be; nobody can match the shade of your makeup to your skin tone better than you. And best of all, there is no longer the frustration of seeing your favorite color of a retail brand be discontinued as you can make your own shade over and over again. Making your own cosmetics allows you to customize a product exactly to your needs. For example, you may use only all-natural ingredients, avoid harsh and irritating ingredients, create makeup exclusively with mineral powders, add your own fragrance blend or go fragrance-free. There are no limits! In addition, making your own cosmetics is highly educational and you will soon become an expert who knows exactly which retail products are good and which are not worth the money.

Features:
- Over 90 recipes for making foundations, tinted moisturizers, concealers, face powders, mineral makeup, blushers, lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms, eyeliners, lip liner pencils, eye shadows and mascara
