I found the ingredients on ebay! YOu can get the ingredients for loads cheaper on e-bay and then mix them yourself! Two places have ingredients. One has 3 of the iron oxide colors you can blend, and the other has 6 of the colors in mica. You can get containers at a 3rd shop and you are pretty much set!

Please tell me the names of these sellers. I'm very interested in natural makeup. Are these what you are using?

Do a search for pigments, cosmetic grade pigments, mica, iron oxide.... There is one place called Coastalscents Mineral but you have to look really carefully. They sell both the finished product and the mica.

This is so heplfull. I was looking at Bare Minerals and find out that none is matching my needs. Not mention price for it. I am going to make my own make-up now. I am so happy. You make my day:)

I am afraid that if I find the ingredients I won't have a clue what to do with them. Do you have instructions or something? I was thinking of getting the name brand figuring that as often as I wear makeup one set should last me a year not the 60 days they say.

Another option is to get a started hobby kit from monave.com. I got one and they include instructions, which is partly why I got it. They also sell the minerals separately, which is a new devlopment since I first posted here about the ebay scource. The kit has instructions on making different shadees of the base powder, which you can alter to suit you if you remember to wirte down your final steps toyour ideal color. There are extra empty cosmetics containers with shake tops. Monave also sells an herb grinder to blend our colors with but you couldprobably just buy an herb grinder at your local health food store. YOu need a scale that measures in grams so one of tose kitchen'dieters scales is a good thing to have. A digital is easier than one of the older types or a balance scale. http://www.monave.com

Zinc builds hair protein which helps to prevent hair loss. Meat and seafood are the foods highest in zinc. Copper is involved in the pigmentation of hair. You can optimize your natural color with a diet with plenty of copper. Who needs hair dye and fake color! Shellfish, liver, fresh vegetables, nuts, seeds and meat are all high in copper,

I have watched the infomercail and thought wow I would love to try those then I'd see the price and that stops alot of people from using it I bet. They have it in certain stores now my mother paid $14.99 for a little blush that won't last a month probably and she said she was going to start to buy it every month till she has the whole set. Well doing it this way sounds easier and cheaper and I say a few babyfood jars might work as containers maybe? Her birthday is this month also in 18 days so maybe if I get a move on and get the other kids to pitch in she can have it all for a gift. Thanks I appreciate posting this discussion I would have never thought to do this in a million years. Thanks good ness for smart people in this world..lol
