DIY Misting Spray
This recipe is for all my DIY friends looking for an awesome makeup setting spray that you can make at home! If you can't get your hands on SM's Misting Spray, this is a fantastic alternative!

DIY Makeup Setting Spray with Lavender Oil
(Meredith Brantley)
1 tablespoon Aloe Vera Gel
1 tablespoon Witch Hazel
5 drops of Lavender essential oil
2½ tablespoons purified water
glass spray bottle
small funnel


DIRECTIONS:
Place the aloe vera gel into a small dish or jar.
Add the witch hazel and blend. Next, add the lavender.
Then, add the water and mix well.
Once blended, carefully pour it into your glass spray bottle using your funnel if needed.
Shake well.
After you have applied your makeup, hold the bottle a few inches away from the face
and mist the face with one or two pumps of your Lavender DIY Make-up Setting Spray.
Allow it to air dry.

Which Gloss Looks Good on EVERYONE???

Which Gloss Looks Good on EVERYONE???
Which gloss did they say at Beauty School looked good on EVERYONE??? ABUNDANT (the first one pictured). True confession - I love lip colors. I have every single one of these glosses and love each of them. On Sunday, I mixed Uptown Girl lipstick with Anchors Away gloss (a combo I normally never would have thought to put together) and ended up with the richest, reddish color that perfectly complimented my outfit. Don't be afraid to play with your colors!

Savvy Minerals' Palette

Savvy Minerals' Palette
Have you seen the Savvy Minerals eye shadow palette yet? While I've built up a sizeable SM stash over the last couple of years, this is one that I didn't have prior to attending Beauty School. I had to give you an honest review. I got the eye shadow palette in a recent order and I love it as much as I thought I would. I'm honestly kicking myself for not getting it a whole lot sooner! Every shade is gorgeous on! I posted about it on FB and SO many people commented about how much they love it! 


If you've waited to add this to your collection, wait no more! ($55 whsl / #23954)  GORGEOUS shades that are EASY to travel with, that are toxin-free and have amazing staying power??? Yes, please! 

Here are some application tips:

Current & Upcoming Beauty Trends

Current & Upcoming Beauty Trends
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend  YL's Beauty School Workshop. It was a full day of training that exceeding my hopes and expectations. Every time I attend a YL event, I leave more in love with our products and company than I already was. This was no exception!

Here are a couple of trends with product suggestions:
  • Current trends include wine or bold lip colors. Our Cinnamint-Infused lipstick shades are PERFECT for that! I got to try them for the first time and I can promise you, they're going in next month's order!
  • Summer trends include more natural looks, especially as far as contouring is concerned. The focus will be on natural makeup featuring dewy skin, shimmer shadows, and sheer, glossy lips. Savvy Minerals has a number of shimmer shadow options and the Tangerine-Infused lipsticks are what you'll want to use for sheer lip color.
  • Pro Tip - Be sure to hold your misting spray 7 - 8 inches away from your brushes when you spray so that your brushes stay beautiful for a long time to come!

Clean Up with March's YL Promos!

Clean Up with March's YL Promos!
March has arrived and with it the urge to clean and freshen every nook and cranny! Time to clean up the mess of winter and start fresh with everything spring! Young Living’s promos for March are all designed to help us kick off spring with a clean slate! So, "spring" into action and get yours!


Here's a little bit of information about each: 

* Orange Vitality is perfect to add to your Ningxia, smoothies and water, plus great in marinades, dressings and baking. You can also take it in a veggie capsule as part of your daily health regimen. I love to diffuse Orange EO and bring the sunshine in on rainy days! Orange is relaxing, uplifting and promotes creativity. It also supports the circulatory system, among others.

A bottle of *Thieves essential oil?! Wellness, anyone??? Yes, please and thank you! This is a never-run-out-of-it oil!

Thieves Dish Soap is highly concentrated and lasts forever since a tiny drop does the trick. You'll love it!

Farmer's markets are right around the corner and springtime likely means your body is likely going to be asking for more produce. The Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak is perfect for adding to a sink full of water and soaking all the items before putting them away. This little bottle will literally last for months! I love having all of our produce clean and ready to grab! By the way...prepare to be amazed at the dirty residue that lurks in the water after washing, even with organics from the grocery store! 

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap...This is a GREAT way to get another toxin-free product into your home. With as often as we all wash our hands, we need one of these beside every sink!

Thieves Household Cleaner literally cleans every surface of your house, so go ahead and ditch the rest of your chemical-laden cleaning products and get this for free! 

Microfiber towels are so great for dusting and cleaning mirrors and counter tops. Have you tried them yet? You'll love them!

Once you've tackled all your cleaning tasks, sit back and relax with the fresh scent of Kunzea in your diffuser. It's properties are similar to Tea Tree and Purification, but it smells more crisp with a hint of lemon undertones. I actually like to diffuse it at night to support my respiratory system.
