If you want to avoid chemicals and synthetic ingredients in your makeup products, you might be interested in creating your own DIY natural makeup concealer.
So, what is a makeup concealer? A concealer is a makeup product used to cover imperfections on the skin, such as blemishes and dark circles. It comes in different forms such as liquids, creams, and sticks, and can be used to create a smooth base for makeup application.
While many commercial makeup concealers contain harmful chemicals, a handmade concealer made from safe and natural ingredients can be a great alternative.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make your own natural makeup concealer using just four ingredients: zinc oxide, yellow clay, beeswax, and almond oil. By following our easy and affordable recipe, you can achieve a flawless coverage that not only looks great but is also good for your skin. Let’s get started!
- Zinc oxide
- Yellow clay
- Sweet almond oil
- Scale to measure quantities
- Small bowl
- Measuring spoons. These can be useful for future DIY products
- Large pot
- Containers to store the concealer
Steps: DIY Natural Makeup Concealer
1- Add 5 grams (0.18 oz) of beeswax to the small bowl.
2- Add 15 grams (0.53 oz) of yellow clay.
3- Add 15 grams (0.53 oz) of zinc oxide.
4- Add 35 grams (1.23 oz) of almond oil.
5- Mix the ingredients with a whisk for 10-15 seconds.
6- Perform a hot water bath for the small bowl to melt the ingredients, especially the beeswax.
A hot water bath is done by placing the small bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl without causing it to burn. As the contents of the bowl melt, make sure to mix every now and then.
7- Empty the contents of the bowl into a container of your choosing.
8- Let the mixture cool and harden and you’re all done!
9- The quantities of the ingredients we used are enough to make 70 grams (2.47 oz), which can fill three containers of 20 grams capacity each and one small container of 10 grams capacity, as per the image below. Of course, you can make less quantity of the concealer by reducing proportionally the quantities of the ingredients.
Using the DIY Natural Makeup Concealer
Start with a clean and moisturized face. This can help the concealer stay in place all day.
Next, take a small amount of concealer (you can use your fingertips or a small brush) and apply it to your skin. Specific areas such as dark spots, blemishes, and even circles under your eyes are good areas to start.
Note: If you want to set the concealer in place, you can dust a light layer of loose powder over it. This can help prevent any smudging and creasing throughout the day.
Finally, if you notice that the concealer is starting to wear off throughout the day, you can touch it up by applying a small amount of product to the affected area and blending it in.
