Makeup Straight From The Kitchen


Ladies, here’s what I found out. You won’t believe how innovative we can be in just enhancing beauty. I tried out some of these tips and they worked swell. You should try them out too and leave a comment on your findings.

At home, all natural beauty care and makeup is something many women have experimented with over the years. Whether it was your teen years when your mother wouldn’t buy that expensive lip gloss and you tried to make it yourself, or when you were older and wanted to save some money or use more natural items, chances are you have found a beauty or health care tip from your own kitchen or bathroom shelf that works in a pinch.

Here are some beauty tips for using all natural, at home makeup and beauty aids, without spending a small fortune. Why don’t you tell us what exploration you have done with makeup from your kitchen.

Lip Care

Most beauty stores sell those tiny round tins or plastic containers with lids that screw on, much like the children’s lip gloss, and you can usually buy them in bulk for just a few naira. Using Cherry makes a dark red and mixing a small amount of the powder color of choice with inexpensive petroleum jelly, and you have a nice flavored lip gloss.

TIP: Mix the powder thoroughly to avoid lumps and clumps and make an even shade. These make great gifts for teenagers and young girls, and even have a great flavor!

If you want a long lasting color on your lips, mash the juice from fresh carrot or strawberry and then using a cotton swab, carefully outline the shape of your lips with the carrot or strawberry juice and then color in the rest of your lips. This will provide long lasting color that will stay on through eating, swimming, sweating – you name it!

If the color is too dark, mixing with a little petroleum jelly will lighten the color and provide some gloss, or you can mix more of the juice for less gloss but a smoother, easier to apply lip color.

Vitamin E capsules can provide many skin care benefits, one of which is a great lip gloss that moisturizes and protects your lips while acting as a light gloss. Simply cut or poke the end of a vitamin E capsule and squeeze for the oil to come out, and apply directly with your finger or a cotton swab.

Skin Care

Ph Balance

Using an inexpensive spray bottle, add one part distilled vinegar to three parts distilled water, and shake vigorously. This works like a Ph toner and skin balancer. You can add essential oil fragrances to add to the therapeutic benefits, such as tea tree oil and lavender, both of which are antibacterial and antimicrobial and have been shown to help with acne control. Spray the mixture on your face or dab a cotton ball into the mixture and smooth evenly on the face.

  1. Nice one! I think the petroleum jelly should be substituted with either shea butter or cocoa butter, they are all natural and have better moisturizing properties. They have other benefits too.

  2. Yes i agree with you Kitans, but some ladies like the shiny look it gives off after application. You should try it.
