As a Mom, I’m always in the kitchen. If I’m not behind a desk while the kids are at school I’m either getting paperwork done on the counter, playing a psychiatrist over the phone or getting breakfast, lunch and dinner ready.
The kitchen is my sanity!
Last week my oldest asked if she could make her own makeup over the summer. It started off with a Kool Aide lipgloss tutorial she saw on Youtube followed by a DIY Lemon Juice hair lightening spray. I don’t know if I wanted to cringe at what her next beauty hack request would be or teach myself a thing or two on DIY Beauty that could be passed down to my girls.
I can’t think of any beauty secret that has been passed down generations which involve makeup. Why not create a minimalist approach that’s natural, safer and doesn’t require an Instagram filter.

The beauty of creating your own makeup at home is being able to control the ingredients you use on your skin while creating custom colors that match each skin tone. I love the thought of being able to add versatility while skipping toxic chemicals.
