Lately, I have been experimenting with lipstick and I am loving it!
I have never worn lipstick unless it was for a dance recital or Halloween costume.
Nothing against lipstick. I've just always been a gloss girl.
Bright fuchsia is my current favorite.
I love to wear it with a black top and my blue skinny jeans.
My lips are usually dry but between lipstick and this weather, they are in awful condition!
I have been wanting to try a homemade lip scrub for a while and just have not gotten around to it.
My cracking lips and love for lipstick are the perfect opportunity!
I read a bunch of recipes online and didn't have everything I need edfor any of them.
So...I just made my own recipe!
It's pretty much the easiest thing ever.
Here's what you need:
1. Place a large spoonful of honey into a bowl.
2. Add a smaller spoonful of sugar to the bowl.
3. Mix WELL.
4. Add a little bit of lemon juice. FYI it's better to add not enough than too much.
5. Use your fingers to scrub the mixture onto your lips in a circular motion. Make sure to get the corners and rim of your lips.
Finish with a calming lotion (I used Cetaphil) or your favorite Chapstick.
If you are trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, don't bother ringing our door bell.
We are being total scrooges this year.
Leaving early tomorrow am for Atlanta means locking the doors, turning off all of our lights, and hiding in our bedroom from the trick-or-treaters!
Go visit my mother-in-law, she's right down the street! Ha! :)
