Makeshift make up

25 May

Whenever I’m on the go, I’m usually dolled down.  For the rare occasion that I’m going to need to jazz it up a bit and don’t have time to go home, I’ve often had to create eyeliner and lipstick out of random other make up and people have often asked me how.  I thought I’d share this helpful tip and may it help you at some point in time 🙂

I’ve determined you can make anything out of chapstick. Any kind really, unless it’s a plumper or something that tingles.  I’d stay away from those and even better yet I usually use ones with SPF in them.

For eyeliner, I shave off some chapstick and mix with whatever color eye shadow I have.  For the above photo, I used carbon (black) from Mac make up but I’ve used greens, dark blues, and browns.  You can also use lighter colors if you like that look.

I’ve also done this with lip stick.  I’ll take a pretty colored eyeshadow and swirl some in a sliver of chapstick and voila!  You can also put a gloss on top of the make shift lipstick to give the glossy/polished look.

I hope this chapstick tip finds you handy at some point.  Now here’s a preview of next week’s fashion post with Chelsea.  Lots of great details.

Happy Friday everybody!  Have a wonderful holiday weekend and remember what Memorial Day is for ❤

      Thanks for stopping in! The best part about this is the chapstick is sticky, it lasts as long as you want it to and then swipes right off 😀
