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

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!

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!
Watch for more beauty and skincare tips and education to be posted!

I got to bring home sample packs of 2 of my FAVORITE personal care products, plus a new one that I've wanted to try for SO long and I want to share them with you! Send me an email at therenovatedlife@gmail.com and let me know which you'd like to try, along with your address, and I'll drop it in the mail to you! The only request I have is that you give me your honest opinion after you try it.  :) 

Here are your options (please choose one):

  • Mirah Shave Oil - You've likely heard me RAVE about this before. Use this to enjoy the most luxurious, close shave you've ever experienced. Plus, you'll LOVE how it smells!
  • ART Intensive Moisturizer - This is a heavier moisturizer for use on more dry or mature skin. It's perfect for nighttime use or even use during the day throughout these winter months. It's fantastic for promoting healthy, youthful looking skin! I use it every day!
  • Wolfberry Eye Cream - This is a product that is touted far and wide! It's wonderful for soothing tired eyes and minimizing the appearance of fine lines.
Remember, I only have 10 of each, so the first to contact me will get the sample of their choice!
