Beauty: Mineral Makeup

I was noticing a lot of talk about Bare Minerals and mineral makeup in general on a beauty board I frequent. I love Bare Minerals foundation, lip glosses and eye shadows. I would love their foundation even more if they had a lighter shade (boo pasty white skin that doesn't look super pasty). I also have more eye shadow than I'd like to admit from them. Being artsy, makeup is just another way for me to play around with color.

I've also started noticing that there are a lot of Etsy sellers who make and sell their own mineral makeup. A few months back I bought some from Heavenly Naturals. The colors were great and a lot of fun. Since then I have looked at other sellers as well. They offer so many different things I don't even know where to start.

Then I got thinking. If others can make their own and I can't find a foundation to match me, why can't I make my own? Well I can. After some research I found that quite a few places sell everything you need to start mixing. Some of the places even sell starter kits! How fun would it be to be able to make your own eye shadow? I know there have been times when I want I shade I just can't find or just don't want to spent a lot of money on.

If you're as interested as I am, here are some sites I found...

What do you think? Would you ever try to make your own foundation or eye shadow? If so what colors (in eye shadow) would you make?

  1. I think it would be awesome if you made your own makeup! But only if you let me help you make it, though.

    Maybe we can finally finally get a foundation that matches your skin tone!
