For Kyrstin: How to make colored mascara

OK so Kyrstin asked if I made my own mascara and no I don't but that set my insane idea wheels in motion.
We all know that I love to save money.....OK I'm cheap, I admit it! :)
I thought I would share with you my beloved viewers what I came up with.
While I have not yet figured out a good recipe for mascara I did find a way to save by making my own colored mascara. Not to mention this means my biggest pet peeve is solved. Not being able to find the color I want!

Here is what you'll need:
1 tube of clear mascara/brow gel (there are lots of cheap brands)
A small funnel (I got mine from Sally in the color section)
A spoon
Eye shadow (I am using Evil Shades Abyss)

Photobucket

Take the brush out of the mascara and push the funnel down into the neck.

01

In small amounts, start adding eye shadow into the funnel and tap it to make it fall down into the tube.

02

Mix by squishing around the mascara wand in the tube. I do this periodically as I'm adding the eye shadow to help gauge my color.

03

Tada! Now you have your very own personalized colored mascara!
