Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                  Last night I had myself a little spa day. I used rice powder to exfoliate my face and then honey and rice flour to do a deep moisturizing and anti aging face mask. I learned how to make my own rice water, powder, and flour on YouTube this past week so I thought I would put it to the test …. I’ve got to say …. I am really loving how bright my face looks now. I have been really big into my skin care exploration this past week … I guess that’s one way to pass the monotony of being stuck in the house. I think tonight I may try giving myself a mani/pedi.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope and pray you are in good health, good spirits, are safe, and have a great rest of your day/night. Remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m having a very high pain and very low energy day today.

I then highlighted the inner corners using the shade Bicoastal (pink ivory metallic). For the lower lash line I did just a little amount of Solitaire (soft mauve matte) and deepened the lash line with more of Big Fig (mid-tone dusty lavender matte). I lined my lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade The Classic (a dusty deep brown).  I set my brows using the soap brow method and then filled in my brows using ELF Lock On Liner & Brow Cream ($4 on their website) in the shade Medium Brown.

I was looking forward to getting back to creating purses but I don’t really have the energy to do them right now because it can take me upwards of 3 hours to finish one purse. But today hubby told me the CEO of his company is now requiring their staff to wear protective masks. I though hmmm … I can totally turn out a mask in less than 10 minutes …. so I have decided my activity for today will be making masks for my hubby’s whole team, provided my energy allows me to make that many masks in one go…. I know I have tons of cotton fabric …. just not sure how much elastic I still have. I’ll post them when I’ve completed them.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Please stay safe, remain in doors as humanly possible, and I hope that you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Published April 5, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I had a hard time staying asleep last night so I ended up sleeping in today. I’m in a world of pain today because it’s raining here in Florida.

For today’s eye look I used the Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Palette ($14.99 at Ulta). I covered my full eye area (from lash to brow) using the shade #MCM  (a mid toned red based brown matte). For my full mobile lid I first laid down the shade #WCW (deep chocolate brown metallic) and then I layered that with the shade #MAU (a dull bronze metallic) and then I layered more of #WCW (deep chocolate brown metallic) over the top. I then took just a hint of #MOTD (soft orange based brown matte) and blended out the edge of my shadow at the brow bone to give a hint of definition. For the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of #MOTD and deepening my lash line using more of the shade #MCM.

I’ve made a homemade lip salve that I got from the tree huggers website. This has helped the abrasion heal a bit. I wear it at night and in the day I alternate between Neosporin and O’keeffe’s Cooling Lip Repair. This combo seems to be helping a lot.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Have a safe and healthy rest of your day/night. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Quick Change In My Skin Care Routine

Published April 5, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I’m just popping in with a quick update to my ever evolving skin care routine.

I noticed, now that I double cleanse my skin, that I have been going through my Bioderma a lot faster  than I use to. So I set out to try and minimize the amount of product I used by using something different to take off my makeup.

I tried makeup remover wipes but they irritate my skin so then I thought i would try using baby wipes to remove my makeup …. this worked better but still I wasn’t happy with the amount of waste I had …. baby wipes are not bio-degradable… so I set out to do some research ….

I came across a few videos of YouTubers that swore by the Face Halo brand. So I jumped on Amazon and purchased a pack of 3 for $30.

20200405_095704

20200405_095725

It’s softer than a washcloth 

The direction say to wet it with warm water and use it to remove your makeup and then simply wash it with soap in warm water and hang to dry….

This has been working for me so well that I am thinking of purchases a few more.

20200405_155545

I also wanted to show you what hubby did for me while I was sleeping yesterday…. He moved all of my sewing stuff into one of our spare rooms and created a sewing room for me!!! He is such a sweet, loving, amazing husband.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay safe out there and remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

This Morning’s Breakfast and Play Time

Published April 4, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Just wanted to pop in to show you what the hubby and I did this morning to break up some of the monotony of this quarantine.

IMG_20200404_164611_501

We saw a TikTok video that shows you how to make what TikTok calls Foam Coffee, but in real life it’s actually called Dalgona coffee and has a pretty interesting history.  But basically what you do is take 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of the sugar of your choice, and 2 tablespoons boil hot water and combine them in a bowl and than you whisk it for 5 to 8 minutes, or until it looks like peanut butter and is thick (like above). 

IMG_20200404_164611_494

You then get a cute little cup and add a few ice cubes and cold liquid of your chose (we chose fat free lactose free milk, but we have also tried it with 1/2 flavored coffee cream and 1/2 milk) and you add about 2/3 of the cup of the cold liquid and than top it off with the Dalgona coffee foam and mix it until you combine it…. It stays thick and creamy and just tastes so yummy!! We have decided we will do this again as sort of a weekend treat.

20200404_182808

The next adventure was to bring a bit of Disney into our home, since we can’t visit Disney just now with this virus going on. We decided to make our favorite Disney Park breakfast food … The Crystal Palace’s Breakfast Pizza …. 6 eggs seasoned and whipped with a a bit of milk and then scrambled. 1 pack of bacon, diced and  fried crispy… (we normally make our own pizza crust but I didn’t have enough energy to whip one up so we used a store bought raw pizza dough can one instead). Roll out the pizza dough and coat it with 1/2 cup of softened butter or margarine mixed with 4 tablespoons of garlic powder. Add the scrambled eggs, next the bacon, and then top it all off with a package of mozzarella cheese. 

20200404_182824

Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 25 minutes and Bob’s your Uncle… the best little distraction on the planet. 

Well that’s all dolls… Just wanted to give you a couple of things you could try to give you something to distract you for a little bit … If you try either of these let me know how you liked them!!

Hope you are in good health and spirits and that you know you are AWESOME! Let no one tell you otherwise!

Warning About Exfoliating Your Lips!!!

Published April 4, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
51I2HYjH1AL._SL1200_

a few months ago I purchased one of these to exfoliate my lips daily. I got mine off Amazon for $6 and thought this was the best thing on the planet….. 

Hey doll hey!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. Well…. I come to you with a caution about exfoliating your lips daily and or being too rough on your lips!

I use one of those double sided silicone exfoliating brushes. I use to use it daily on just the small nub side …. but I had forgotten to exfoliate my lips in about 2 weeks … so I used first the bigger nib side and then I went back over my lips using the smaller nib side … I noticed I had a ton of dead skin sloughing off so I decided to rub it a bit more and I applied a bit too much pressure.

20200403_215904

I now have a sore patch of skin on my upper lip. It hurts a heap and the only thing i can think to do is apply some neosporin and give it time to heal. 

So I’m coming to you with a caution … when exfoliating your lips use only the gentlest of pressure and do not exfoliate for more than 1 minute… even if you having gotten all of the dead skin off in the first go …. leave it for the next day ….this way you don’t end up with a nasty abrasion on your lip too.

Well that’s all for now dolls …. hope all is well …. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
