Hair Colour

Pure, strong Chamomile Tea (brewed with 1/2 cup herbs per 2 cups water) and sprayed or poured on hair and left on for several hours. Sitting in the sun during this time will enhance the lightening effect. Fresh squeezed lemon juice, sprayed and brushed through hair and left on for several hours (in the sun) will also produce natural highlights. A chamomile tea rinse at the end of each shower (leave in hair!) will produce smooth, silky hair and naturally lighter hair over time.

Natural Eye Liner and Shadow

To make a smoother eyeliner, mix equal parts of coconut oil and shea butter (about 1/2 ounce of each) and add about 1/2 tsp of activated charcoal to make a black eyeliner that is thicker. You can also do this with cocoa powder for a brown hue.
For eye-liner, either use a tiny bit of cocoa powder mixed with coconut oil, or a tiny dab or activated charcoal and whipped shea butter. Be careful not to get either one in the eye and store the eye shadow in an old powdered eye shadow container and apply with finger or a slightly damp brush.
Mix up several colors of eye shadow using cocoa powder (brown shades) Spirulina (green shades) and arrowroot (light shades).

Beauty Expert Noorie Sen says, “DIY beauty is affordable, easy and you can get as creative as you want. Always be careful when using any products, even natural ones, near the eyes or mouth. You can keep your skin looking great all summer long with this sun lotion for warm months, simply mix ingredients like calendula and chamomile. You can create your own custom nail polish by using clear polish mixed with eye shadow for just the right color you desire. Similarly for making a lotion bar, from shea butter and beeswax with some essential oils thrown in.”
