Halloween bling and cosmetic recipe

I have to share this lovely Franken from the amazingly talented wixbetty of Wixology blog.
She made me this blingy Halloween glitter a couple of months ago and have been dying to try it.
It's a clear base with a ton of orange glitter and two sizes of silvery lilac hex glitter.




I love this! Thank You wixbetty!

Now for some DIY fun!
This is a recipe for a cosmetic fixative (aka mixing medium).
I suppose I could package and sell this but I think that is just greedy and bad buisness, so instead
I want to share it with my Lovies.
This can be used in so many ways: as a spray to give the dewy look,
as a mixing medium to foil your eye shadow, misted on your makeup brush to help your eye shadow
"stick" better, or as an after shower light moisture.

You will need:
A small 4oz spray or squirty bottle
measuring spoons
a funnel if you are at all clumsy(me)
Distilled water
Glycerine (you can get this at any drug store, Walmart, target etc.)
Vitamin E

in your bottle mix 3 Tablespoons Glycerin to 6 Tablespoons Distilled water
add 1/8 teaspoon Vitamin E
Close, shake and you are set!
You can use rose water if you like, I do not as I find it to be a little oily and can cause smearing.

See why I think it's crappy to package and sell this?
It costs less than $1 to make a 4oz bottle and companies charge between $8 and $30 for this.

Good Lovies! xoxox

  1. Your nails are beyond fabulous!! I love the lilac glitter in them, such a nice mix!

    Thanks for the recipe! I'm way too lazy to make my own (it's so true) but I've been in love with the Exposed Organics nectar lately. It has some sort of inorganic preservatives in it, but no parabens so its okay! You are so smart and creative XD

    Oh, and I normally use the macro setting on my camera, but if I turn off the flash I never get a clear picture, what the fuck? Stupid walmart camera!

  3. Your nails looks so festive!

    Thanks for the recipe. I can't believe MAC sells this stuff for a high price (only through their Pro store too boot).

  4. I still love this polish just as much this evening as I did earlier today! Lovely!

    Thanks for the info on the recipe, I'll be using it for foiling or making the shadow stick since most of my stuff is loose mineral powders, yay!

    Thank you.

  10. I adore this franken, it is so bling-y!

    Thank you so much for the recipe. That is something I have been needing and looking for but at a price that won't kill me.

  11. Love your nails!! Perfect for Halloween. :)

    I have been making this mixing medium for a few years now, and just want to say that it is so great - THANKS for sharing with everyone, because it is not fair to consumers when companies charge up to 30 bucks for this! Everyone should know how to make and use this themselves :) I also make my own brush cleaner so I don't have to pay huge prices for that, either.
