Make It

In a small bowl mix arrow root powder and colorants. Do this in small amounts adding more color as you go. Stop when you have reached your desired pigment. 

Use a fork to mash the coconut oil into the powders. continue doing this until the mixture comes out smooth.

Store at room temperature in a dark glass jar or container. Keep an eye out for any foul-smelling shadow or weird colors. apply like normal using an eye shadow brush! 

Tips and Tricks

Adding less or more colorants will make your shadow darker or lighter

Look for other dried herbs, spices, mineral powders, and other natural materials.

The coconut oil adds moisture and aids in keeping the powders on your beautiful eyelids. 

Try mixing colors together to create new colors
