DIY Eyeshadow ~ Halloween Candy Corn Edition ๐ŸŽƒ

Updated: Oct 10, 2019

I have always LOVED eyeshadow. It was the first product I bought at Sephora when I was 13 and I have been hooked ever since! After over a decade of loving eyeshadows I have become very picky when it comes to textures and colors. So to be honest I thought DIY eyeshadow would be something I would never make! I just thought it would be to hard to make something I would actually WANT to wear on my eyes. It took a lot of research and many many test batches but I have to say I am really proud of the recipe I have come up with! For a natural eyeshadow it is very creamy, pigmented, and long wearing!

I personally love the fact that I know exactly what is in it and donโ€™t have to worry about toxic ingredients. Plus I get to choose/mix exactly the colors I want (which Iโ€™ve been having a lot of fun with!!!) so if your interested in making your own shadows keep reading ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will also list the color combos I am loving so far!

Shadow Base:

1 Tbs Bentonite Clay

1 Tbs Arrowroot Powder

3-5 Drops Lavender Essential Oil (Optional)


1/4th Tsp Cosmetic Grade Mica

1/8th Tsp Shadow Base (Approximately)

3-5 Argan Oil

Pea sized amount of fresh Aloe Vera

Notes ๐Ÿ“

I recommend letting the shadows sit for 12+ hours before using them. Gives the aloe time to dry down.

Some colors will need more shadow base to be smooth and silky. For example I found when I made gold it needed the regular amount but when I was working with purples and orange in needed a little more base to be smooth and silky on the skin so I recommend testing it on your skin before adding the Argan and Aloe. That way if you need to add more base itโ€™s easy to blend. The color will also intensify when you add the Argan and Aloe. Just some things to keep in mind.

Iโ€™ve been using Stardust Micas pigments to make my shadows. I LOVE them! They are cosmetic grade and they have lots of gorgeous colors to choose from! ๐Ÿ˜

Just a reminder. Because itโ€™s cosmetic grade does not always mean eye safe ๐Ÿ‘ most of the Stardust micas are eye safe but just double check before ordering if your picking a color not listed here ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
