Make your own Eyeshadow Recipe

Just like any girl, I like doing my makeup once in a while. I’m not exactly the best at it but it’s all about having fun and experimenting until you get it right. The one thing I’m really bad at is doing my eye makeup. Blending eyeshadow is very tricky! It takes A LOT of patience.

Aside from having difficulties to make it look good, I also have a problem finding a nice, inexpensive palette that has clean ingredients. Ones that are sold in big stores can be so expensive. I don’t want to spend so much on something I haven’t been the best at. So I thought, why not make an eyeshadow palette with the colors I want and not spend a little bit too much?
