Today I want to share a little beauty secret with you. I don’t think it’s life-changing or mind-altering, but it has certainly made me a little bit happier when putting on makeup (I don’t ask for much).
So, when I first got into green beauty I bought a few loose mineral eyeshadows…you know the ones that come in a little pot? I love them, but here’s the thing – they’re messy, they’re hard to apply, and the powder often drops onto my cheeks and under my eyes despite my best efforts. It’s especially difficult to apply shimmery, glittery powders.
I experimented with applying with my fingers (smeary and uneven application) a brush (disaster! Powder everywhere!) and wetting my finger to pick up more shadow so it wouldn’t drop everywhere (back to smeary and uneven application).
But there is a happy ending to my story.
Because, if you dip a finger into solidified (room temperature) coconut oil and THEN into the powder, it glides on like a dream – no creases, no weird uneven application, and no glitter on my cheeks making me look like a ten year old at a birthday party.
Try it. And let me know if it made you smile.
