Has anyone tried ones from organic supermarkets or homemade ingredients as their skincare in lieu of makeup?

I cannot say enough good things about the products from Skin Biology (and no, I do not work for them). My skin looks so clear, firm and youthful, I only need a touch of powder. I've been using the products for over a year now. There is also a forum on that site, so you can read about how people use the products, ask questions, etc.

I have been using Melvita mostly for the past year and really like it. I have also used quite a few products from Jason (available at more natural stores), Alba, Weleda, Caudalie, and Boots from Target.

Right now:
Facewash: Melvita
Toner: Melvita or Caudalie or Orange Blossom Water
Toothpaste: Jason, Weleda
Moisturizer: Boot Botanicals
Serum: Boots Protect and Perfect (not natural)

I haven't converted body wash or lotion to natural alternatives yet. I haven't found the right blend of cost and effectiveness, so I am still looking. I've gone natural for face care for around 3 years now. My skin looks very good, and generally speaking people think I am 6-10 years younger than I am, and I am in my early 30s.
