1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder

Refined shea butter

Cocoa powder


Dried beet powder (depending on what colour you want)


1. Combine the arrowroot powder in a small bowl, then mix through your preferred colouring agent.

2. Add the shea butter (start with 1/4 teaspoon), to the back of a spoon and mix until the formula is light and creamy. Add more if you want the eyeshadow to have the consistency of a creamy formula, or less if you prefer the matte look.

3. Transfer the mixture into a clean, sterile, container and tightly add the lid. Store in the fridge to keep it fresh, and you can it use it for up to 2 weeks.

4. To create your own personalised colour combinations, mix cocoa powder and dried beet powder for a soft shade of pink. Turmeric and cocoa powder makes a unique shade of copper, and a pinch of nutmeg creates earthy tones for neutral lids.
