DIY Pore Strips!

In my mid 30's I no longer deal with break outs-my skin is drier but that doesn't exempt me from blackheads!  Most people's skin needs are complex.  It's very common to have several issues that contradict each other.  Today, I'm going to make a mask that will simply purge my pores of impurities, namely blackheads.  I'm sure all of us at one point in time have used pore strips-you remember, those band aids from hell that you place on your nose, wait 10 minutes then RIP!  Ouch!  They work though.  … [Read more...]

DIY Cheek and Brow Highlighter….

A highlighter is used to bring out certain aspects of the face such as the brow bones and the cheek bones.  It can be used in several places-along the cheek bones, below the eye brows, above the upper lip, down the bridge of the nose and on the along the inner corner of the eyes.  A highlighter can take you from dull to radiant is seconds.  It's my go-to when doing even the simplest make up looks. There are several very popular highlighters on the market but the problem is, they are full of … [Read more...]

DIY Cream Blush and Lip Tint

When I think of what blush should look like on your cheeks I go back to Scarlett O'Hara from Gone With The Wind.  I remember her pinching her cheeks so she would have that natural flushed look.  I had a lot of Fiddle Dee Dee moments with this blush but I finally found the right ratio of ingredients to give you that Scarlett O. look!  So, see you later Rhett, we don't care if you don't give a damn, we're making blush! This recipe is very similar to a lip balm recipe.  I ordered mica powder the … [Read more...]

Dry Skin Moisturizer with Shea Butter

I've been making face cream for my mother for a while now, but my "experiments" are never moisturizing enough for her skin.  She gets dry patches on her cheeks and getting a cream that addresses that issue has not been easy.  I have made over 10 different formulations trying to get something that works for her!  I finally did it-I found a concoction that is nourishing and thick enough but not greasy!  With winter coming, we all get a little drier.  With heaters in our homes and cars skin is … [Read more...]

DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm!

Today it's cloudy..... It hasn't been cloudy in over a month, much less rained.  It's mid September and we are still in the 90's, so anything that resembles the coziness of fall inspires me!  I decided to experiment with lip balms today!  I ventured outside my usual essential oil route and "infused" my oils instead!  This turned out to be really simple using tea bags!  I used grapeseed oil as my base because it is odorless.  I found my Pumpkin Spice tea at target. Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm 1/4 cup … [Read more...]
