Girls, c’mon, your makeup bag is pretty dirty isn’t it??  It’s easy to toss your makeup around, especially when you’re in a rush.  I’ve even forgotten to put on the lid to my lipstick before tossing it into my bag!  Many of us don’t take the time or haven’t even looked at the mess in our makeup bag for months, or even years!  Luckily, it’s simple and only takes 10 minutes for a full tidy.  It’s time to clean up our makeup act. Chelsea Crockett- lipstick in the freezer

Start by emptying anything and everything out of your bag and turning it inside out.  Remove all the makeup from the inside the bag with a makeup wipe.  You’ll be surprised at how much makeup there is!  One of the biggest concerns with makeup is it getting infected with bacteria.  To disinfect lipstick, put it in the freezer overnight to kill bacteria.  Anything bad will freeze right off.  You can also wipe it with a disinfectant wipe.  In order to clean compact makeup, spray one spritz of rubbing alcohol directly on the powder.

Another problem I always have is getting rid of the extra mascara left on my eyelash curler.  Eventually, it starts to build up!  To get off all that unwanted mascara, use a lighter to melt the mascara and wipe it right off.  It’s so simple!  Take the time to clean out your makeup bag and disinfect your favorite products.

XOXO,

Chelsea

As you all know, I love makeup. Actually, love is an understatement! Sometimes my love for makeup can have a negative side because it can cause my skin to break out. The harsh chemicals in some makeup products is not easy on my skin. I like to try and use natural makeup, but sometimes it is hard to find. Then, I found a recipe for homemade foundation powder makeup on lovesimply.me and I couldn’t wait to try it for myself! Here is how to make your very own foundation powder makeup.

Ingredients:foundationpowder21-682x1024

-Arrowroot starch (or you can use corn starch)

– Cocoa powder

– Ground cinnamon

– Ground nutmeg

– Ground ginger

– Bentonite clay

– Vitamin E

– Lavender essential oil

You have to tweak the recipe a bit to make it suit your skin tone, but this is how I made it to match mine:

  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour/starch. (Add more to make a lighter powder)
  • 4 TB cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp EACHnutmeg and ginger (if you have more of an olive skin complexion you may need more)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp bentonite clay
  • 10 drops of vitamin e
  • 12 drops of lavender essential oil

Add your ingredients to a glass bowl (not metal), adding the arrowroot or corn starch first, and then whisk them all together. Test the color of the powder by placing a bit on your neck or face with your finger. If you have sensitive skin or just prefer using natural products, then this powder is perfect for you!

Let me know how it turns out for you!

XOXO, Chels
