You know I love makeup and beauty products. You might also know that all of that stuff is expensive. Seriously, I can walk into a drugstore for eyeliner and come out with twenty bucks worth of stuff. I don’t even know how. My boyfriend asked me why I had so many different tubes of mascara, and I didn’t understand the question. I have different mascaras for different occasions. That’s not weird.
I hate spending money on unnecessary products, which is why DIYing things is always a good idea. It’s also fun and a great way to cure boredom. Obviously, crafting options are endless, but did you know you can craft your own makeup? Yeah, you can! How cool is it for a friend to ask where you got that lip gloss and you can say you made it yourself? The coolest.
So, here are # DIYproducts you can make yourself!
