This afternoon I decided to not do anything related to getting the house back in shape.Needed a break and do something girly.
It was time for 'find a new use for powder products'.There were a lot of almost empty powders,highlighters,blushes and eyeshadows.They use up a lot of room and it's a pity to not use them.
It's simple and everybody can do that at home.
Pressing powders is fun and you can be creative because you design the perfect products for your needs.
I had done a few posts on that in the past,the instructions are included in the links.

DIY mineral blush Highlighter trio
This time I had a lot of different colors to mix and match,so I can't wait to see the result.
Here are a few tips:
-When you want to transform an eyeshadow into a blush you have to mix in at least 20% face powder to mute the color of the eyeshadow a bit.Depending on the pigmentation the eyeshadow may even need 50% face powder.
-a tiny amount of a rather unusual color makes the difference in the result.
-try to use products with fine shimmer.
-Matte shadows also work
-You can even create your own bronzer
-make sure to check the expiration date of every ingredient you use.The product that will expire the soonest will determine the expiration date of your diy product!!
-indentations can be made with jewelery,I used cross earrings and a cross necklace.(Hope jesus won't have a problem with being a blush indentator)
-let the final product dry for at least 10 hours.
In the pictures my blush is still wet,so the colors don't show properly yet.
Tomorrow I will add the pictures of the final result with swatches.
