DIY: How to Make Cream Blush

7 Feb

    Here I am with another DIY 🙂

    Cream blushes stay longer than a powder blush. Unfortunately, I don’t have any cream blushes right now  so I just made one myself.
    Please check this out if you want to know how.
    STEPS:
    1. Prepare the things you will need:
    • empty container
    • any moisturizer
    • pigments (different shades of blushes or eyeshadow, highllighter, bronaer)
    • toothpick (for mixing and scooping)
    • tissue (for cleaning/wiping mess)
    • makeup setting spray
    used Human Nature blush case

    blushes (from Human Nature, Avon, Krave) highlighter (from Avon), bronzer (fromnElianto)

    2. In an empty container, use a toothpick to scrape and scoop your chosen pigments. I chose Human Nature Blush in Petal Bloom, Elianto Bronzer, Krave Blush Krush in Pink Muffin. You can use any kind of powder blush (loose or pressed, mineral or not). You can use multiple colors so you can mix them and get a new blush

    DIY: tinted moisturizer

    4 Dec

    I currently ran out of Myra E Tinted Moisturizer so I thought of making my own do-it-yourself concoction from two of my fave Krave products.

    Here are the products that we need: moisturizer, foundation (or concealer), spatula, extra containers

    moisture souffle night cream + ricotta liquid foundation

    I am not sure of the ratio but I used a 1:5 ratio, 1 drop of foundation is to 5 drops (or more) of moisturizer. You can add up to any of those two.

    I didn’t use extra containers. I opened a new moisturizer to replenish the one I am currently using. The new night moisturizer will be the plain moisturizer and the other is for my day tinted moisturizer. I just continuously stir the two together until the color settles into a beige-ivory shade.

    It may be a bit messy but don’t fret. I just wiped the excess with tissue and VOILA!

    I now use two different moisture souffle moisturizers. The tinted one for mornings and the original one at night. 🙂

    You can try this out too using your own favorites! Let me know what you used, alright?

    I will try mixing the Snoe BBfied sampler I have and let you see soon.
