Try These Surprisingly Effective Natural Alternatives for Your Makeup Basics

Natural makeup products give you an alternative to standard beauty products found on store shelves. Mainstream brands are safe to use, but sometimes your skin needs some extra pampering without harsh chemicals. Try some of these alternatives to regular makeup to refresh and beautify your skin. You can even create your own makeup recipes at home so you control the ingredients.

Milk Plus Almond Oil Instead of Makeup Remover

The proteins in milk and almond oil leave your skin refreshed after removing makeup. Mix 1 tablespoon of almond oil with a small bowl of milk, and apply this mixture liberally to your skin with a cotton ball to gently remove all of your makeup.

Coconut Oil Lipgloss as Opposed to Store-Bought Varieties

Mix 1/2 cup of unprocessed coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of beeswax granules, some of your favorite lipstick color and a few drops of essential oil to create homemade lipgloss that shines for hours.
