Homemade Concealer/ Primer

I like my concealer to be lighter than my foundation, also with any sort of green tint helps tremendously to cover those red spots (I use Spirulina)


Make a loose powder Foundation, and add my Body Lotion to make a creamy consistency. (Personally, I like my concealer to be more creamy and my foundation I prefer to be loose powder). 

Once thick enough to cover those imperfect spots put in container with lid. 

You may want to make it a bit thicker to use as a primer. I just use Spirulina,cornstarch, a pinch of cocoa powder, and some of my homemade lotion.

Homemade Make-up: Foundation/ Bronzer/ Blush/ Eye Shadow

I've found that making my own makeup has not only saved me money, but also helped my skin. I like using a cleaned out or new spice container for my loose powders. You just simply shake once, open the lid and take your powder from the lid.


For Loose Powder-
Mix together then store in a spice jar, make-up container, or an old compact. 


Pressed Powder-
If you want to make it a more solid base so that only a little sticks to the brush, use a few drops of essential oil or rubbing alcohol to mix with the powder and push down in a compact. This will make it hard like a regular compact.

Creamy/ Liquid-
If you want a more creamy product, add some homemade or scent free lotion, petroleum jelly, or coconut oil. (I prefer coconut oil, I whip it with my little handheld mixer before adding. It makes for a much easier application). Store in jar with lid or pump.


You can also add this combination to some homemade or scent free lotion, petroleum jelly, or coconut oil to make a liquid foundation. (Use you…

Fun Bean Bags DIY

Meet, The Rollie Pollie:
It’s a chair, it’s a toy, it’s your favorite pillow. Made of durable cotton twill or soft vinyl, each bag is actually a slip cover (with another Rollie Pollie inside) then filled with mounds and mounds of soft cluster stuffing. So if it gets dirty, just zip it off and throw it in the wash. And with a handle on top, it’s easy to toss around. Ready for a pillow fight? We’ll let dad referee.

This is a MINI-Tutorial for the Rollie Pollie, showing the basics of how to make one. The Full, Detailed pattern can be found at the MADE SHOP
The detailed pattern includes: Tons of info about Fabric selection, sewing with zippers, where to buy the right filling for your Rollie Pollie, How-to make an Insert Rollie Pollie and a slip-cover to go over it (easy to wash), and TWO different sizes of Pattern Pieces, which can be printed right on your home printer!
In this mini-tutorial, we’ll show you how to make the Insert Rollie Pollie.
Okay, let’s get started!
The Rollie Pollie is made…

DIY MAKE-UP SETTING SPRAY

What is a setting Spray? PURE AMAZING-NESS- That's what!
I love my Mac Setting spray  (Fix +), but to spend $21 for a 3.4 oz bottle? I knew there had to be a way to DIY.
Setting sprays are always great to have for a quick grab in the summer, when it feels like your face is melting off.  One simple spray and you're good. (I always keep a to-go spray bottle in my purse. Around $.97 at Walmart)
I am sure you all know, bottom line, Glycerin = Sugar. Don't be scared yet. With the sugar water diluted you won't end up having syrup on your face- Also, Make sure that you  DO NOT SPRAY TOO CLOSE TO YOUR FACE. A simple spray about elbows length away is enough. 
Using this recipe you can change the scent to whatever you like! 
Personally, I like using Filtered Rose Water (it's mild, and has a great scent)- If you have redness in your skin the rose water will help. Another option is adding one part witch hazel- it makes it feel less sticky.
~HAPPY SETTING~
