Make Your Own Lipgloss

So you’re at the end of your favorite tube of lipstick and are really hating to waste whats left of it below the plastic lip, let alone buy another tube of it yet. If you can round-up a couple of small items you wont have to part with that lipstick yet! Take a clean orange stick or something as small as one and use it to scoop out the remaining lipstick from the tube. Now you need something to store it in, such as an empty gloss container,plastic container,small glass jar with a lid, or what I normally use, which is an empty pill minder, the kind that has a little bin for each day of the week so there are seperate compartments for several shades. Not just mix the lipstick with a little bit of petroleum jelly to create your own custom shade of lipgloss. The petroleum jelly will make it easier to work with in the container and be spreadable while also keeping your lips soft at the same time! You can even add a drop or 2 of a flavored and food safe oil like spearmint or peppermint oil to it and make your lips tasty as well as kissable!

Anybody got another recipe for lipgloss or another beauty item that they make their own mix for?? Leave a comment and let us know about it!

Get rid of bad odors from shoes

If you’ve already tried baking soda, newspaper, and etc. to get rid of the odors in your shoes or work boots and they have not worked here is something else to try. Place the offending footwear, bagged or unbagged, in a freezer overnight. This works because the bacteria that causes the odor can’t survive in below freezing temperatures so the root of the problem is killed. Just remember to take them out of the freezer early enough to warm up if you’re planning on wearing them the next morning!!
