What to do with eye shadow or blush that has broken

Thursday, February 12, 2009 13:30 1 Comment

Ever had that horrible feeling after you have dropped a favorite eyeshadow or blush, only to discover it has shattered into a zillion pieces? Well, instead of throwing it out next time, do this handy tip.

Mix the broken pieces with a small amount of vaseline, ensuring you are mixing well. Then use it as a cream-based eyeshadow or blush, instead of a powdered one! Just remember that cream-based products need to be applied slightly differently, so don’t use this for the first time right before heading out the door! While you may apply it perfectly the first time, with others it takes the practice makes perfect method 😉

Make your own Appletini Bath Salts

Make your own Appletini Bath Salts for Frugal Gift Giving!

The first in our Frugal Gift Giving Series!  Bath salts are a great gift giving idea, especially since they are really inexpensive to make.  This bottle above cost about $1.15 to make, including the cost of the bottle!  We bought the screw-top bottle for $1 at a dollar store (it is much bigger than it appears, it actually holds well over 1 cup of bath salts).  We bought a huge bag of epsom salts for a few dollars, and this barely made a dent in it.  And since I had both the green coloring (it is actually quite  a bit more green than it appears, it was hard to get a good picture without the glare) and the green apple fragrance oil from soap making for gifts last Christmas, it makes a really nice gift for one I guess is about $1.15, including the price of the bottle.

Here is the recipe for Appletini Bath Salts, and if you want another scent, there are a ton more recipes and ideas.

We are doing a series on frugal gifts you can make at home, be sure to subscribe to our RSS!
