1. Colorful Nail Polish
You can create any color nail polish by mixing your favorite color eye shadow with some clear polish! Crush your eye shadow into a powder, and put it right in the polish bottle. Add some glitter if you’d like. 🙂 You can use a little bit of eye shadow for a light tint, or add more for a richer color.
2. Eye Makeup Remover
Since your eye is such a sensitive part of your body, you don’t want to be using makeup removers that have harsh chemicals in it. Try making your own instead! Mix 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp vitamin E oil, 3 tbsp alcohol-free witch hazel, and 1/2 cup of water. Pour into a travel-size cosmetic container, and shake it up. Use a little bit on a cotton ball; it takes your mascara right off, and moisturizes your lashes too!
3. Dry Shampoo
For those of you who have never used it: you use dry shampoo when your hair is a little dirty, but you don’t have time to take a shower. You spray it on your hair, and it absorbs the extra oils. It’s really useful, but it does have a lot of chemicals and synthetic fragrances. To create your own, mix arrowroot starch, cocoa powder if you have dark hair (it’s the coloring agent), and a few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional). If you have blonde hair, you can just use starch and essential oil. Give it a try!
This one is super simple! Pour a 50/50 ratio of olive oil and sugar into a container, and mix it up with a craft stick. Voila! The sugar exfoliates your skin, and the olive oil moisturizes it. You can add essential oil for a natural fragrance, if you’d like.
