Homemade Costume Make-up Recipe

HOMEMADE COSTUME MAKE-UP RECIPE Make a batch of this non-toxic nature's costume make-up that is easy to wash away. INGREDIENTS: 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 tablespoon solid shortening DIRECTIONS: 1) Mix ingredients well. Makes enough white makeup for one face. Store in a small, closed jar if not used immediately. Double the recipe for 2 kids or if different colors are required. Divide white costume make-up into small portions on a piece of wax paper, and color the portions with food coloring. A package of food coloring at your supermarket contains yellow, red, green and blue in separate bottles. Follow the instructions in the package for colors orange, brown and purple. 2) Apply costume make-up on the skin by using fingers or cosmetic sponge, and avoid getting it near the eyes. After applying the costume make-up, pay skin with cotton balls and talcum or baby powder for a better, longer-lasting result. Supplement with regular costume make-up, such as lipstick, blusher, eye shadows and brow pencils or buy your own costume make-up online.
