Create your own all-natural eyeshadow in just 3 easy steps!


It’s pretty obvious we’re all about cool DIYs and awesome beauty hacks––so when we came across the idea of making your own eyeshadow with all-natural ingredients from your kitchen, we had to share. They'll make the perf Mother's Day gift, BFF birthday prezzie (or you could just make a bunch and keem 'em all to yourself––jk!) Check out the step-by-step directions below and get ready to go naturally glam. 

What you’ll need:

  • Arrowroot powder (found in the spice isle)
  • Shea butter
  • Clean container to store the eyeshadow in
  • Q-tip for mixing
  • Bowl for mixing

Any combination of the following:

  • Cocoa Powder
  • Nutmeg
  • Dried Beet Powder
  • Tumeric
  • Allspice

Color combinations:

Pale Pink:

  • 1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried beet powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. shea butter


  • 1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
  • 3/4 tsp. allspice
  • 3/4 tsp. dried beet powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. shea butter

Light Brown:

  • 1/2 tsp. arrowroot
  • 3/4 – 1 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. shea butter

Golden Brown:

  • 1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder
  • 3/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. tumeric
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. shea butter


1. Start by placing 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder in a small bowl. The more arrowroot powder you use the lighter and more subtle the color will be. You can always add more, so start with less!

2. Add your other spices/powders and mix thoroughly until you get the color you desire (color combos listed below).

3. Once you have a well-mixed color, add in 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. of shea butter. This will make the eyeshadow nice and creamy, while moisturizing your skin at the same time.
