Today we came up with a few ideas like solar powered lights, chargers and making makeup. We decided to go with making makeup. We think their are to many chemicals in makeup so we researched some natural makeup recipes. We decided to make lipstick using coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and beetroot powder. We are also going to try and 3D print a palette to put the lipstick in.
