This is a fun way for kids to play around with make-up, but without the copious ingredients often found in the mainstream make-up that is marketed towards kids. The best part is that it is the only make-up the kids need – it can be applied to cheeks, eyelids and lips.
To remove it, simple rub olive oil over skin and use a warm wet face washer to wipe it off. So easy!
Makes: 5 Prep time: 20-30 min. (for kids)
1. Grab a small glass jug and weigh in the olive oil and beeswax pellets.
2.Use a double boiler to melt the ingredients. Stir gently every now and again.
3. Now weigh in the arrowroot flour and stir well so that there are no lumpy bits.
4. Divide the mixture evenly between 5 small (approx 30 g) pots and add a different colouring to each one, then mix carefully. **For best results, use at least 1 teaspoon of mica per pot.
5. Your make-up is ready to use, no need to wait for it to set!
Using a clean make-up brush, apply to your eyelids, lips or cheeks.
