Pinterest Fun Friday: Re-Healing (Fixing) Your Cosmetics

 
 

Every Friday I like to highlight one of my favorite Pinterest finds of the week. This post not only allows me to spotlight some really awesome and crafty ideas but it allows you to see a few Pins you might not have seen this week.  –

I spend way too many minutes’ hours in the day pinning on Pinterest. Now if I could only find the time to make all of these wonderful things I pin! Wouldn’t that be great?

Let’s Get Pinning!

This week I chose to find a simple solution to a multitude of blush palettes I had that were too little to use but the frugal side of my said it was too much to waste. Apparently I have had that idea for a while now because it wasn’t until the other day that I opened up my storage makeup bag only to find that I had three blush palettes that were waiting to be used up or thrown away.

I remembered seeing on Pinterest that you could add them all to one palette and re-heal the blush back together. This was a perfect opportunity for me to try this genius idea to see if it actually worked. What did I have to lose anyway? I was just going to throw this blush away so why not give it a try. (OK so you know I wasn’t going to throw it away, but let’s pretend) Guess what? It works like a charm.

If I don’t use Clinique blush you will find me using a blush by Cover Girl it’s honestly my favorite blush. I don’t care that it’s cheap or not an expensive brand. I care that it’s the perfect shade for me. I haven’t found one yet that is better. Needless to say I go through a lot of this blush so when I found three palettes that were in need of tossing or fixing. I decided to get fixing.

To my surprise this idea of healing your cosmetics works beautifully! I mean seriously it works perfect and in just a matter of seconds. I didn’t even take the time to get a knife or spoon to mix the blush I just used a Q-tip. After all I was in the bathroom and it was a spur of the moment idea so the Q-tip worked.

What you need:

  • Blush, powder, or eye shadow
  • Alcohol
  • Q-tips

Directions:

  1. Take the remaining product out of each palette and add it to the one you plan on keeping.
  2. To the blush add a few drops of alcohol. Don’t add too much. Start with a few drops then you can always add more if you need to. Once a few drops have been added use a Q-tip, knife, or spoon to start mixing the product together.
  3. As needed add a few more drops of alcohol until your product is well combined. It should be a thick paste.
  4. Flatten the product the best you can. I left mine a bit lumpy in hopes that you could see it a little better in the picture. I didn’t think it really mattered anyway.
  5. Next allow the product to remain open and dry for at least 12 hours. This will help it heal and it will also allow the alcohol smell to subside.  Once everything is dry you can use it right away!

Pinterest Fun Friday: Money Saving on Facial Cleansing Towelettes

 
 

Every Friday I like to highlight one of my favorite Pinterest finds of the week. Sadly I realized that it’s been a year since I did my last Pinterest Fun Friday. I can’t believe it because this was always one of my favorite post. I will do my best to keep up as life moves forward. This post not only allows me to spotlight some really awesome and crafty ideas but it allows you to see a few Pins you might not have seen this week.  –

I spend way too many minutes’ hours in the day pinning on Pinterest. Now if I could only find the time to make all of these wonderful things I pin! Wouldn’t that be great?

Let’s Get Pinning!

This week I chose this amazing little creation. Although there isn’t a lot to it I think it’s genius idea! Better yet, it’s simple and sometimes simple is exactly what you are looking for! 

2015-08-15 23.12.03

One of my favorite nightly beauty routine items that is a must have are the Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes. I love them and I especially love how they smell. One thing that I have noticed is just how much of the towelette goes to waste each night. I only use about half of the towelettes and the rest goes in the garbage.

I started thinking about how much I was wasting at a cost and how I could do things differently.  You never want to waste anything you love right? Each Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelette package comes with enough for one month’s worth of cleaning, but by cutting them in half you could get two months’ worth. After all, these are not the most inexpensive towelettes, and I only use half of the towelettes anyway. Waste not want not right?

2015-08-15 23.06.44

I decided there was a simple solution to my problem. Cutting then in half and storing them in an airtight container would not only help them go further but would also help preserve the moisture in the towelettes which is a must when expecting them to last a month or longer.

2015-08-15 23.13.04

In the past I have gotten close to the end of the month only to find that my last week of towelettes are almost dried out. Here is a simple solution!

2015-08-15 23.06.13

What you need:

  • 1 package of Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes or any brand
  • 1 small Mason jar or a jar that is airtight and to your liking
  • Scissors

Directions:

With clean and serialized scissors cut each towelettes into two even pieces. Place each piece into the serialized jar that you have chosen.

2015-08-15 23.07.45

Once each piece is in the jar add any additional liquid to your jar. Seal the jar tightly then give it a shake.

2015-08-15 23.12.15

 

If you find that you jar doesn’t have enough liquid in it to keep your towelets moist add about 1 tablespoon of water to the jar and seal it. I don’t advise adding much more than I tablespoon. You are only looking for them to stay moist not wet. You can always add another tablespoon later in the month if you feel it’s necessary.

2015-08-15 23.12.03

You should easily be able to get a few months out of your towelets without them drying out. Plus this gives you the ability not find a nice jar to match your bathroom or the freedom to decorate a jar that will fit your needs and your taste!

2015-08-15 23.14.12

This is not rocket science but it’s a great way to add a little more décor to your bathroom and find a practical purpose for your everyday routine. Even better, it’s a great money saving idea!
