1. Start by placing 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. arrowroot powder in a small bowl. *The more arrowroot powder you use the lighter and more subtle the color of your homemade eyeshadow will be. You can always add more, so start with less*
  2. Slice wilted beets and lay it out on a tray. Dry the slices in a food dehydrator, a convection oven on low heat, or in the sun covered with a net. Then grind them using a food processor, blender, or coffee grinder to make powder.
  3. Add your other spices/powders and mix thoroughly until you get the color you desire. (I have four color combinations to get you started below, but have fun and experiment.)
  4. Once you have a well-mixed color, add in 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. of shea butter. Use the back of a small spoon to “cream” the butter in with the powder against the side of the bowl until you have a soft, creamy powder. (It really will still look mostly like a powder.) The shea butter will help keep this homemade eyeshadow on your lids and provide a nice moisturizing kick.
