It will not be appropriate to call make-up just a cosmetic product as it has become a part of our daily essentials. It is that dash of colossal kajal that makes you see the world in a new light, the lipstick that makes our day more interesting, and a splash of magic with the eye makeup that makes the world more highlighted. Make-up is not just a cosmetic rather it is an art.

Here is a perfect answer to how do you make cosmetics at home. This recipe is excellent for those who can never leave their house without applying kajal. Now, you can say that you own the chemical-free version of your everyday kajal.
Take 7-8 almonds, and put them in a small earthen pot or Diya. Take a matchstick and light all the almonds till they are entirely on fire. Put two glasses made of fire at a short distance from one another, and keep the earthen Diya with burning almonds between them.Rest a steel plate on top of the glasses and make sure it drifts right above the Diya. Try not to leave too much distance between the Diya and the plate, as the soot is everything we want for the kajal.Let the almonds burn till the flame dies out. Let the plate cool for some time. Flip the plate once it gets completely cool. There must be a lining of black soot on the plate. Take a few drops of castor or almond oil, put them on the soot, and scrape them off the plate. the thick paste will be formed out of the soot once the oil is mixed. Transfer the formed mixture into a container. Add a little castor oil or almond oil to alter the thickness of the kajal and let it sit for some time. Your homemade kajal is all set for use.

Begin by adding foundation into a small container. It is best to use a foundation that comprehends your skin tone. To be on the safer side, use your everyday foundation.
Now add concealer into the container. Keep in mind that the concealer should be of the same amount as the foundation. Again, opt for your everyday liquid concealer for this one as you will want to have a shade that matches your skin tone.Now, using a flat scooping utensil, scoop out the same amount of your face moisturizer or body butter. Adding moisturizer will help prevent your lids from drying up. Then add a drop of Aloe Vera gel into the formed mixture. Aloe vera gel helps in retaining oil at bay, as surplus oil can result in greasing. Now mix the mixture thoroughly using a toothpick, and you are done.
