Thank you for promoting this!
You are welcome! It was a lovely video.
I loved the make-up she is wearing. I must try something like that myself. I am not a big fan of make-up but little something would be nice every once in a while. But my eyes and skin are so tender that no commercial make-up will do. Even mineral powder is too harsh to wash away. And also if you use make-up like twice a year they go bad... But DIY edible make-up sounds wonderful. The lippy is really nice color. Powder used to be rice flour, didn't it? Back in Marie Antoinette days?
I've gone years without make-up:) Not because I'm against it in principle, but because of all the chemicals they put into it. I use coconut oil and glycerine for my skin. It works fine for me. I think you are right about rice powder. And didn't they use beets for rouge in the past, too?
I don't know about rouge. But I am thinking if cranberry powder would work for lippy? I have seen it in shops and the color would be really nice. I must do some experiments.
Never seen cranberry powder sold over here but could be a good idea to try...
Hello Sanne! This is your long lost reader/friend, Mrs.O.I have been taking a bit of a break reading blogs. I have missed your writing, getting caught up. So many interesting posts, indeed.Would you mind sharing how you use the coconut and glycerin?I have gone back and forth over make up. Like you, it's not on principle, but I have chosen not to wear it. It just looks so silly on me as I age. I used to wear some daily (never tons) and just stopped 6 years ago.I recently tried to go back and just can't get it right.One of my older daughters suggest I just use a good moisturizer and tinted lip balm, this is why I ask about your oil/glycerin combo.God bless and truly enjoying catching up!!Mrs.O
Hello, Mrs.O!Nice to hear from you:)I use coconut oil/glycerin instead of skin creme, that is I just apply it in the same manner you would apply skin creme. It works fine for me. BTW, I just recently bought a new lipstick, because we had to go to a party. But I always forget to use it daily:)Have a blessed Easter!
Thank you! Do you prefer mix them?Mrs.O
You are welcome!No, but I think you could. Coconut oil is fatter and less quickly absorbed.
