Hi Kimberly:

I found the podcast about make-up very informative. There is a book out now entitled "In No More Dirty Looks: The Truth about Your Beauty Products—and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics" by Siobhan O’Connor and Alexander Spunt who have done research on the comestic business and they have a blog with wonderful resources and have recipes on making your own comestics.
