You would know (if you follow me on Instagram) that I suffered a major makeup loss when I misplaced my entire brush set and a couple of other makeup items in the last week of 2017.
So I have been using the first few weeks of 2018 to plan how I would rebuild my makeup box. Not just to replace the lost items but to make it even better.But before I get everything I need, I have been into some DIYs lately that have really helped.
So I’m just going to share it here for those who are on a budget or people that just love to use DIY methods.
1. Glycerin + Rose Water as a setting spray.
If you aren’t into DIY setting sprays yet, you are missing out. I know experienced makeup artists that swear by these. Not only are they super affordable to make, they are really good for your skin and makeup as they are customized just for you. I personally use Glycerin, Rose water, some vitamin E capsules and some tea tree oil. Literal healthy glow!
How to: Put 2 part glycerin, 1 part rose water and 2 part water in an empty spray bottle. Shake and bust a Vitamin E capsule into it with a few drops of tea tree oil. That’s it!
2. Tinted brow set- Brow sets are like icing on cakes. They set your brows(obviously 😒) and keep them in place so that they don’t move all day. Bad thing though, they are quite pricey. So to save cost, you could make yours using
- Eco styler gel
- Hand sanitizer
- Brown eyeshadow (with no red undertones) You can skip this one if you don’t want your brow set to be tinted.
Just mix all of this in tiny quantities in a small bowl and put them in an empty(clean!) mascara wand. Then use it to set your brows. You’re welcome.
< strong>3. Using a CD as a mixing palette.<<<<<<<<<
dn’t see that one coming. Mixing palettes are very handy for jobs and I think this is a great hack for one. It is stainless and is really easy to clean.
< strong>Have you tried any of these hacks before? Which ones do you know that wasn’t mentioned here? Do share! Also, I’m still looking for brands that have affordable sets that I can use before replacing my Sigma.
So comment down below if you know any. Thank you for reading, once again. <<<<<<<<<
