Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Today’s project is a simple one that I’ve been meaning to whip up for ages—a good makeup remover. It’s wonderfully easy with just three ingredients, one of which is very flexible and another is optional. It’s also wonderfully effective—I tested it with some seriously stubborn mascara and eyeliner from Benefit, so I can attest that this stuff works. I also designed it to be highly concentrated, making it great for travel. It’s awesome, it’s easy, it’s effective, and you should whip up a batch!

Rose Gold Lip Gloss

Ok, so I may be a touch late to the party on this one, but isn’t rose gold the prettiest?! In the past I’ve shied away from pink. Not for me, I thought—too… pink 😜 This stance has softened over the last few years and I now find that rose gold has nestled into a little pinky spot in my heart and I’m suddenly quite fond of it without even knowing how it happened. For the uninitiated, rose gold is a lovely soft pinkish hue, with a touch of subtle gold that catches the light every now and then. It’s utterly lovely, so it’s not hard to see how I decided I simply had to have a lip gloss in this lovely colour!

Airbrushing Primer Stick

This silky Airbrushing Primer Stick is basically a fantastic hybrid of primer, stick foundation, and my airbrushing powder. It helps control oil, blur imperfections, even out your skin tone, mattify your complexion, and keep your makeup on longer—all awesome things, no? It also goes with a silky smooth, dry-touch finish that is downright luxurious. You can put it in a stick or a compact, making it all kinds of versatile (I’m definitely more skilled with the compact application). I’m loving it combined with a touch of concealer for a bit of lightweight complexion perfection, and I think you will, too.

Highlighting Moon Drops

I had so much fun developing these Highlighting Moon Drops, and I think you’re going to have a blast making them! They come together really quickly and easily, allowing you to create a rainbow of different colours in no time. I’ve kept the batch size small so you can make a dozen of ’em if you want without feeling wasteful, but I’ve provided the amounts in weight as well so you can scale the recipe up if you happen to concoct a colour blend you’re absolutely mad about and require in larger quantities.

Tinted Coal Lip Balm

I thought I’d mix things up a bit with this seasonal lip balm and bring my Lumps of Coal holiday theme to the realm of lip balms. And I love it. It definitely seemed a bit odd when I jotted down the idea a few weeks ago, with aims of avoiding creating something dark (though not goth-esque) you’d actually want near your mouth. The final product is a beautiful cool plum colour that I absolutely love. There’s a hint of shimmer, some wonderful darkness, and some subtle gloss. It’s a perfect stocking stuffer, and you should definitely make some.

Winter Wonderland Lip Gloss

This soft, sparkly Winter Wonderland lip gloss has a lovely champagne hue in the tube, but goes on sheer with a hit of shimmer and a hint of sparkle. It’s also a bit thicker than some of my previous lip glosses, as per some reader requests, meaning it sticks around longer, helping keep your lips protected and hydrated (and also just a wee bit looking like you kissed a unicorn). It smells like soft, minty awesomeness—in short, it’s winter perfection.
