Makeup is expensive, and considering I love experimenting with tons of different colors and mixing up how I wear it all the time, it can really add up. Plus, store-bought synthetic makeup is sometimes harsh on my skin. Luckily, DIY makeup is becoming more and more popular. You can create your own foundation, eye makeup, lip balm and facials for half the cost. You can completely control the ingredients and go all natural. That way you'll know every ingredient that goes on your skin and you can customize your look just the way you like.
