I'm a skeptic when it comes to pretty skincare product. Especially those shown around by beauty gurus/influensters in various social media outlets. They could be showing this pretty skincare because everyone else is doing it, or because they were sent the products for free and they want to keep getting free stuff, or because they… Continue reading DIY Unicorn Antioxidant Oil
If you've seen my last post, then you'll know that I recently bought a lot of micas! But I also bought some makeup ingredients like calcium carbonate, magnesium myristate, silica microsphere, cetyl alcohol and some more oils and sericite mica. With those ingredients, I had a busy but fun day of making more makeup. The… Continue reading DIY Marie’s Airbrushing Primer Stick / Light Foundation and Stick Blush and Bronzer!

So, Pinterest has lately been showing me a lot of pins for homemade, natural, mineral foundation. It makes sense really. I make a lot of my own makeup. In fact, the only thing I don't make are my eyeshadows and mascara. Mostly because I like a mascara that's super lengthening and voluminizing and easy to… Continue reading Spices, superfood powders in natural, mineral makeup – Why you shouldn’t even try…
A couple of post ago I did a post on a haul of all natural, organic products I bought for my birthday. One of the store I shopped from is Oh Natural!, a 'conscious beauty store' based in NZ. In that post, I featured the 3 products I bought from this store. I love 2… Continue reading Oh Natural! – Luk Beautifood Lipstick – Review
I don't know whether I was scrolling through Instagram or exploring Etsy, but whichever it is, I came across some hand carved crochet hooks. Not hand turned, hand carved. From sticks and twigs. They looked awesome! So unique and different, but also very pretty and rustic. I could've just bought one of these beautiful hand… Continue reading I made my own crochet hooks!
So we're doing something a bit different today here... I'm going to share with you some stuff I recently bought! I've never really done this kind of blog post before, so please be kind 🙂 Last week was my birthday. Yay! I received some money to buy my own present (I don't like surprises/unexpected stuff,… Continue reading Collective Haul – Organic, Natural Products!

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then let me introduce you to Marie, the creator of the blog Humblebee and Me and author of Make It Up. Go on and check… Continue reading Liquid Gloss Lipstick Hybrid?
This will probably be my last post on homemade makeup for a while. Like I said in my last blog post, I am finished making homemade makeup. I have everything I need . Currently I am just using up my concealers. Once I've finished them, then I will probably try to make some concealer. But… Continue reading Updated Homemade Lipstick Collection
I am finished 🙂 This has been a long, expensive, stressful, sometimes tearful, but overall fun and satisfying journey. As some of you may recall, my New Year's resolution was to replace my store-bought makeup with homemade makeup. At first, I wanted to replace everything. But then I realized that there's just some stuff I… Continue reading Updated Homemade Makeup Collection
I only have 2 store-bought lipsticks left. One is a Revlon Matte Balm in the shade Sultry that my husband bought for me <3, and the other is a pink Maybelline lipstick that I love the shade of (but not the smell!). I still can't recreate this pink colour so I'm thinking I probably need… Continue reading Homemade Lipstick Collection + Swatches!
