Homemade Makeup and the end of the World!




So I  am married to a man that has the end of the world and prepardness on his mind alot. If you look in my pantry at home you WILL see lots of excess can goods, bags of rice.. beans.. and what not. One day while he was going on and on about supplies we needed on hand incase the shit hit the roof, I started imagining what the world REALLY would be like if we couldn't just go get groceries at the local Market or we couldn't just grab a bottle of asprin at the drugstore if we had a headache... What if in this Apocolyptic setting we had no choice but to live off the land, grow our own food , and make use of what we already had and owned. Then the sickest thought of all popped in my head. No makeup... *gasp* No sephora.. No online shopping for the latest color palette from urban decay (even though you own 20 similar colors ) No more nothing.. Whats a girl to do? What CAN a girl do? Even if it's the end of the Earth I still wanna look good when I step out of my house, even if is just to harvest from the garden and strain rain water.. Am I right? LMAO... Thus,  the Beauty Survivalist is Born.  In the upcoming weeks I hope to do a series on  Youtube on how to make beauty products from stuff in and around the home. So when the shit DOES hit the roof, you WILL be prepared. ;)

Here is an easy little remedy for a lip gloss or stain for you when that last lip gloss of yours finally runs out!

Easy fix! Berries!!


Stain:
Blackberries and Dew Berries make great stains! I have an abundance of of dew berries that grow around my house and after picking them my hands are always stained with a berry purple color. So bite one in 1/2 and rub the rest on your lips, you will have a stain that should last all day!

Gloss:
Take a berry and mash it up good add a little vaseline mix it up, transfer it to a little makeup pot, bam! you have lipgloss!

I have lots more recipies and ideas that I will be putting in my videos and on here  with item such as beets, castor oil, corks... you'll just have to tune in for the Beauty Survivalist!
