I have gone to school for cosmetology and absolutely love everything that has to do with it. I am always trying to find a way to be fashionable for less money. For the past year I have been making my own makeup and the more I learn and play with it the more I love doing it.

  • One Interesting Fact About Me
    I love to learn! I always want to learn new things and I am known for just buying books to read about anything that I am interested in at the time, even if I don't plan on actually being hands on.
  1. Hello, I started making my own mineral makeup and I was wondering if anyone knows a great place to buy mineral makeup ingredients for good wholesale price. I have bought through theconservatorie.com and tkbtrading.com. Is there better places to buy from? Thank you!
  2. I haven't used store bought makeup remover for a couple of years now. I just use 2/3 water and 1/3 olive oil or argan oil in an old container, shake it up and put it on a cotton ball and wipe my makeup right off. My skin looks so much healthier and a lot less oily too. And of course I save more money in the end.
  3. I for one know how confusing it is when you start making your own makeup. I also love tkb trading they have a lot of useful information, but it can still be a little confusing. There is a book about mineral makeup and it's all about learning how to make your own. It explains all the ingredients and has tons of recipes. I bought it and found it to be very helpful for me http://www.etsy.com/listing/67872955/the-complete-mineral-makeup-kitlimited. Good luck! When you get your makeup line going let me know I would love to check it out!
  4. I haven't known anyone to get a Stye do to mica. I used to be an optician and one of my co-workers would get them. The eye dr. told her she was applying to much eye makeup and it was irritating her eye. She told her to hold a warm washcloth on it at least 4 times a day and gently massage it. If it didn't go away she would prescribe her some eye drops. It ended up going away in a couple of days.
  5. My niece has had trouble finding a shade that blends with her skin tone. She ended up having to combine two loose mineral foundations to get her perfect shade.
  6. Here is a very popular mineral makeup store on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/orglamix. There is another store on etsy if interested in learning how to make your own mineral makeup that sells an eBook http://www.etsy.com/listing/67766231/the-complete-mineral-makeup-kitlimited. It has tons of information and recipes for everything that you would want to learn for only $19.99. I bought it and am really impressed with it, other mineral makeup eBooks that I have bought cost more and don't have nearly the amount of information in them.
  7. Argan oil is great! I absolutely love it! I use it on my skin and hair and sometime substitute olive oil in my cooking recipes with it. Did you know that The Argan oil is rich in vitamin E (620 mg / kg for Argan oil compared to 320 mg / kg for Olive oil) which is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that captures free radicals and neutralizes destructive oxidation. Some Argan oil medical properties: Anti-oxidant (phenolic compounds) Reduces hyper tension Reduces cholesterol damage Reduces rheumatic an articular pain Stimulates brain capacity Facilitate digestion by increasing the concentration of pepsin in the gastric juice Traditionally in Morocco, Argan oil is used in tajines, couscous, salads, grilled tomatoes and other famous moroccan recipes If your interested you should check out http://www.arganoilmorocco.com/2007/10/argan-oil-benefits-en-recipes.html
