Have you tried to prepare your own eyeliner? Want to know how to do it yourself? Here’s a DIY Mineral Eyeliner recipe you can try.
So, Eyeliner is one of the most tricky beauty recipes. However, the best part is – it is easy to prepare and there are loads of way to prepare them. We’re going to look at a Shimmering Eyeliner Recipe today, though we will be adding more options for you soon.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients, shall we?
Sericite – 1 ½ Tsp.
White Clay – ¼ Tsp.
Titanium Dioxide – ½ Tsp.
Zinc Stearate – ¼ Tsp.
Magnesium Myristate – ¼ Tsp.
This will be your Makeup Base, for this recipe. You can take as much, or as less as you want, for preparing your Eyeliner!
Black Iron Oxide
Glimmer Brown Blue Mica
Red Iron Oxide
Satin Brown Blue Mica
For about ¼ Tsp. of Makeup Base, you would need 2 Smidgens each of Red and Black Iron Oxide, about ½ Tsp. of Satin Brown Blue Mica and Glimmer Brown Blue Mica. You can work out the quantity based on how much of Eyeliner you want prepared. Add all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and blend with a spatula to combine. When they’re fully combined, transfer to a sterilized Eyeliner container and use as needed!
You will have to keep blending them in manually to make sure there are no lumps, take 2 – 3 minutes to remove any lumps.
Who’s the Ideal Candidate for this Recipe?
This recipe suits those with warm skin tone. While this really brings out those with Green Eyes, anyone can wear this Eyeliner.
How Else Can this Recipe be Used?
You can also use this as your Lip Color, Eye Shadow or even a Bronzer, depending on your skin tone.
How to Use This Eyeliner?
The finishing color is what you would called deep red brown, or plum brown, since it has reddish undertones and a dark brown color that dominates the recipe. You can use this wet or dry and it looks really unique and good for winged eye makeup.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can use Zinc Oxide instead of Titanium Dioxide, if you prefer it better.
As for the color pigments, it is a matter of one’s preference and choice.
If you prefer the traditional Black Eyeliner, just stick with Black Iron Oxide or Black Mica for shimmer. Or you can choose just about any color pigments of your choice and use them. You can use Black Clay instead of White Clay, if you are going for Black Eyeliner.
Remember: When you buy Mineral Makeup Base ingredients like Titanium Dioxide, make sure they’re non nano. Also, check to ensure all the makeup raw materials you buy are approved for use in cosmetics.
Last but not the not the least – play around with the recipe and identify what works for you best. This is not hard and fast recipe that you should stick to, so play around with the ratios, color pigments and anything else you can thick of!
