    I use dr bronners.

    I've tried these soaking methods and found that I still had lots of makeup in my brushes, so gross!

  • Linda Croston

    Ive also heard that zote' soap works really well too, i have yet to try it

  • Sunny Marie

    Try not to soak the part where the bristles attach to the metal that holds them to the handle (it's called the ferrule) because the soaps, etc, can break down the adhesive in there and you start to lose bristles! Just an FYI.

  • Kessia Stevenson

    Baby shampoo works well, plus it's obviously super gentle.

BETTER EYE MAKEUP CORRECTOR

    I do the exact same thing with coconut oil!! It removes eye make up AMAZINGLY, and it is a natural moisturizer, and prevents against wrinkles and sagging around your eyes! Makes your skin super soft, too!

  • Madeline Johnson

    Eye shadow primer also works great! Especially to remove misplaced mascara.

Clear skin for everyone!

    I used to feel the same way about toner, too. Then I moved to a city with the hardest water I've ever encountered, and live in an apt. building with no water softener. Now I feel like toner is a necessary part of my skin care routine-- getting all of the residual hard water deposits off of my face to prep it for moisturizer or facial sunscreen. I like Thayers' rose witch hazel. When my current bottle runs out, I will definitely try the apple cider vinegar 'recipe' to save some dollars!

  • Vicky Rubio

    Hi guys, I can't find ACV where I live, will organic plain apple vinegar work aswell? Thanks!!!

  • Kathryn

    I would be careful using any vinegar on your face. ACV is okay because the pH is similar to that of your skin, but other vinegars might be too acidic. Plus, as you can see from the picture above, ACV has that cloudy stuff suspended in it- that's where all the good stuff that your skin likes, like vitamins and minerals, hangs out. Not just any old vinegar will do. http://www.reddit.com/r/Ski...

    Ok, guess I won't get the benefits :( thanks!!

    I love how there's more controversy about an all natural oil than there is about flouride in toothpaste. Like, guys, it's not going to hurt you if you try this method, whether it works or not. And it's definitely better to swallow a little than it is to swallow flouride toothpaste as you do every morning.

    It's my 3rd comment, had tho delete the first two. Why the hell pinterest doesn't have a edit button??? Well, here is my question. Does it work with any oil? Like olive oil? I don't have coconut but I have sage oil, and sweet almond oil. I haven't tried almond for anything but I'm pretty sure I don't want that sage thing in my mouth. What should I do?

DIY EYE SHADOW PALETTE

  • Jaclynn Cureton

    P.S. if you HAVE to do this then you've got some poor quality eyeshadow. Notice I didn't say cheap, because there is high quality inexpensive stuff. You just gotta buy it on Etsy. ;)

  • Sarah Evans

    How does depotting equate to poor quality eyeshadow? I have MAC eyeshadow pans that I have depotted to save space in my vanity. It has nothing to do with quality, and everything to do with saving space and organizing.

  • Angela Tertulien

    They just want you to leave it on long enough to warm the glue so it will come out of the pot, if you put parchment or wax paper it will be fine if you put it I. The oven the plastic will melt and your left with the metal pans the shadow comes in. so once you depot them this wayyou really can't put them back again

  • Dyanna Littke

    poor quality does not always factor into broken shadow or re-potting. Higher quality pigment can actually make the shadow fragile since there are far less fillers and bondants.

Beauty a budget? No problem. Try our very green/natural alternative to dry shampoo! #kitchenbeautician

    Anna Denson, by natural oils you mean dirt and grease. Cleaning you whole body daily is a necesity, to not wash it everday is just weird and gross. Personal experience: I wash my hair everyday as well as some friends I have, our hair is long, grows fast, is shiny, and soft. Girls I talk to always ask us what we do to our hair, and we say wash daily. If you buy a good shampoo and conditioner it shouldn' tdamage your hair, so if it does your using a bad brand or something. Another personal experience, I've noticed that girls that don't wash their hair everyday have a weird smell, just saying.

  • Ashly Forli

    you do know that lice is attracted to clean hair? the only people who end up getting lice are the ones who over wash it. So I think you are gross for washing your hair every day and risk getting bugs... dry shampoo have scents in them, to say people say smell weird is just plan fucking rude. There is so many chemicals in shampoo to wash it everyday is harsh on it. Scalp oils have a naturally protective quality.

  • Sara Bormett

    As long as my hair is clean, and I don't hang around anyone with lice, and my house is clean. I use shampoo and conditioner so they balance each other out, I know that the shampoo is harsh, that is why I use conditioner to add the things that are needed. Shampoo cleans, conditioner adds nutrients. I've clearly angered you and I am sorry, but you didn't have to use the harsh language.

    I like the mani!

  • XandraAwesome

    @Lilli English me too! Lol... And tying the gems like that looks like a big pain when you could just make your own eye loop. Plus, I'd be concerned that the twisted metal would scratch facial skin and scalp, scratch anyone the person has their head near, not to mention snag other people's clothes if you're short and hug someone.

  • XandraAwesome

    Also i'd suggest 2 pliers (needle nose or flat [or one of each]) because jump rings can be tricky

DIY BLUSH + BRONZER

  • Jennifer Deperio

    Bronzer makes you look more tan/warm. I'm guessing the blush will offset the harshness of it and make you look more alive. Killing two birds with one stone AND it looks pretty.

  • Kathryn Dawes

    Thanks Jennifer! That makes sense! :-)

  • Maria Gomez

    Lol lets be honest most people are full time somethings. As a full time teacher you probably have free time on the weekends and all summer. Unless you teach summer school.

    @The Beauty Department Hello, can you help me share a message with women? I've been a wardrobe stylist for 15 years and my experience is that women are way to hard on themselves and I'm trying to change that if I can. Can you please re-pin this quote on this board, or wherever you think best...thanks! http://www.pinterest.com/pi...
