Description of this Book

It isn t a secret that beauty products are full of chemicals we can barely pronounce, no less want to involuntarily ingest. We all deserve to know what we put on our bodies, and to have products that fit our exact needs. No more messing around at beauty counters: Make It Up will show you how you to make just what you need, and want, when you need it.Author Marie Rayma found herself eating healthfully, but clueless about how to clean up her beauty regimen. So she started making her own real makeup and skin care: bright lipsticks, quality mineral powders, high-performance eyeliners, and masks and cleansers that yield results. Make It Up shares the foolproof recipes Marie has learned through years of trial, error, and testing.The book starts by walking through natural ingredients available in most kitchens, online, or at local food stores. These awesome oils, butters, clays, and minerals will replace petroleum products, artificial colors, and lab-created mystery fragrances that have untold effects on our bodies. From there, Make It Up dives into starter projects like lip balm, lotions, and face masks, then onto foundations, lipsticks, eyeliners, blush, bronzers, and more. The book provides information on each ingredient used to help the reader understand its strengths and benefits. Products can be tailored for individual needsfrom swapping out ingredients not suitable for sensitive skin to whipping up the perfect colors suited to any complexion.With easy-to-follow instruction, Make It Up provides more than 40 essential cosmetics and skin care projects that will replace just about everything you put on your face and body with handmade, high-performance, healthy alternatives.
