How I saved my husband 20 bucks.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned the fact that I am a product junkie.
I love nothing more than trying new things, but this is not a cheap hobby.
The good shit will cost you, some items you can cheap out on, like mascara and lipstick. 
Eyeshadow is not one of those, you pay for pigment.


'most' of my eyeshadows.
I know, it's crazy.

I randomly came across the blog MaskCara, love BTW, and she gave a recipe for making your own eye shadow primer.
Which costs 20 bucks if you buy it, totally worth a shot.


Cornstarch, chapstick, foundation.
I used the blow dryer to melt the chapstick, then I added the cornstarch and foundation.
In hindsight I would have added the cornstarch last and  a little at a time to get the right consistency.

Totally works.

The way I see it I just saved my husband 20 bucks, see I don't need a job :)

Plus, I busted out my first sweater of the season.


82 degrees is fall weather, right?

Happy Hump Day!

  12. It's funny b/c I am a product junkie too ... but I do not skimp out on my mascara. I think that mascara and a (good) eyeliner are 2 of my must-haves, if nothing else!! :)

  14. I am for sure going to be trying this out. I feel like I had never even put makeup on by the end of the day.
    Loving your decorated deer head. I have a pair of mounted horns hanging in my bedroom...the best part is that I am the one that shot the deer! I used to hunt alot with the family but now I stay home on the hunts and we make crafts while the guys are hunting! If you love what you hang on your walls then that is all that matters!
    Glad to here that everything went so well with your surgery.

  19. All that eyeshadow you own is insanity! And I should try this recipe. I usually only like to use the ones that are creamy, so this I may really like :-)
    You look fabulous by the way!
