Getting ready for the Makers Fair! Making eyeshadow and Lip balm

Well today I decided it was time to start preparing for the Makers Fair in Shreveport at the end of the month Since I have to premake jars I decided I needed to make some bigger batches of eyeshadow, I figured about 1/4 cup each, on my website I say I make up small batches and well when I mean small batches I mean SMALL I normally only keep enough eyeshadow on hand to fill a 3-4 jars and I keep  it in bags, but now that my business has picked up I really needed to do this anyway. That and I am not going to have to constantly make up a little batch 2-3 times a week.

Guess what color this is?


What about this glittery concoction?

Princess Fluffybutt!

I finished about 18 jars today all my greens purples and pinks!

If you notice on the second stack 3rd jar down I have a new color named Krista(named for my sweet green eyed sister who just so happens to also be a St, Patricks day baby) I hope by the end of the month to have this released on my website http://www.simplykendra.com/

Take a closer look

How pretty is that? Worn on the eye it's a pretty jade/jewel green. Gotta love Green which if no one has noticed is my absolute favorite color!

Next I started making lip balms! So far I have tootie (sugared strawberry) Toasted (Marshmallow) and Date Night (sweet popcorn)  Here are some pics of me making Date Night

Getting my Ingredients ready my soy wax, shea, cocoa, and olive oil

Fresh off the stove nice and melted!

Adding a little Mica for a yellow tint

Freshly poured in tins

I can't even tell you how yummy my kitchen  smelled! :)

Here is a sneak peak of  a picture for Tootie I took today for my website.

Well my loves I just thought I would show you what I was up to today! Oh and this is my 100th post!!!!  Yay me!

Thank you all for your support and love I appreciate you so much!

I feel so bad! I am trying to stay up on everything, promote business, and purchase all the new stuff. But I have failed in the past 2 weeks =( I probably will not be caught up for about 6 months, but I want Krista! I also want those lip balms... lol. I love the blush I have. Well done and keep up the great work! Hugs

How fun to get a look "behind the scenes!" I'm excited about those lip balms. And the colors look amazing! (p.s. I know I haven't ordered from you online yet but I'm waiting for the Maker's Fair!)

LOL you don't have to order everything. I know you have plenty enjoy using all that good stuff or you will become me and have a ton of makeup I don't even use because I haven't gotten to it yet.

I am trying to get Connie to be my booth helper, I am going to make her wear makeup! lol
