  1. Eyeshadow: Mix arrowroot powder, beet powder, turmeric powder, and cocoa powder to create various colors. Apply more arrowroot powder to lighten a shade. Use more cocoa powder to darken a shade. Store in airtight containers.
  2. Eyeliner/mascara: Heat coconut oil and shea butter just until melted. Add food-grade activated charcoal powder and mix well. Store in a small airtight container or cleaned mascara tube.
  3. Eyebrow: Mix cocoa powder and cornstarch. Apply several drops of castor oil and mix well. Add more cocoa powder to darken the shade.
  4. Lipstain: smash blackberries and raspberries, to release as much juice as possible. Strain well to separate the pulp. Mix juice and a little olive oil. Store in an airtight container.
