Did you know that you can save a ton of money on beauty products just by making them yourself at home? I didn't realize either just how much you could save, or how much I was spending on my beauty products for that matter until I started making a few here and there at home. There are so many recipes out there that show you how to use simple ingredients that are most cost efficient to save money. Let's take a look at a few of my all-time favorite beauty product recipes.
Hair Care Products
We really shouldn't put anything in our hair that has chemicals, not if we want it to look shiny and beautiful for many years to come. All-natural products you can make at home not only save you money, but you have the benefit of knowing what is in your hair, that's why I love these products.

If you're like me and don't like to spend a lot on your skin, especially those pricey pore strips, then you will love this simple recipe.
(2/3 cup) 160 mL of baking soda
(3-4 tablespoons) 45-60 mL of water
1 drop of essential oil (not necessary)
This is a great way to scrub the dead skin cells off of your skin. You don't have to add in the essential oil, I just put it in so it smells divine.
Take the charcoal and dump out the contents in a small dish. Moisten a tip of a makeup brush or q-tip to apply. That's it!
Eyeliner just helps to give your eyes that extra pop to them, and this one is the easiest of all. With only one ingredient it's not too difficult to make your own.

You don't have to be concerned about any chemicals with this lip stain. It's simply amazing and smells fantastic when you are making it. You may even want to lick your lips a few times once you've applied it.
Homemade Plumping Lip Gloss
Pour about 8 drops of the cinnamon oil into the lip gloss. This stuff is powerful so be careful not to do it. You'll notice a little tingling on your lips, this lets you know its working.
