DIY Natural Makeup Setting Spray

This past Saturday, I was fortunate again to be a guest on KTHV’s morning show. I shared a recipe for making a natural Makeup Setting Spray. Makeup setting sprays on the market are generally ridiculously expensive. They are a great product – giving the face a dewy glow and helping powder makeup to stay in place all day. Often times the price tag and the hair spray like ingredients though, can be a major deterrent (You think?!).

In comes the DIY Makeup Setting Spray. In its simplest form, it consists of two main ingredients – vegetable glycerin and water. Yep, it’s that simple. You can watch the clip of the segment to get all the details on how to make it. The recipe for about 8 oz is  2oz or ¼ cup of vegetable glycerin to 6 oz or ¾ cup of distilled/purified water.

Now while I was there at the studio, after talking with another presenter Chef Cameron (the owner of Bistro Catering – you should check them out!), I thought about the fact that although it is possible to find all the ingredients you’d need to make this yourself, it might be quite cumbersome to do so. Think time, convenience, availability of supplies…SO after doing a little research, I’ve decided to offer a kit that has all the ingredients you need shipped right to you! Yes, I am excited :).

And I genuinely hope you are too!

This kit will contain 2 oz of vegetable glycerin, a purse size spray bottle, a label, instructions, plus a set of 3 essential oils in 2 ml containers - skin type dependent - to add to your setting spray. This will all be neatly packaged and sent over to you so that you can try your hand at mixing your own blend. Each kit will have an explanation of the essential oils suggested and the amounts necessary to enhance the spray. 

I think this is a big deal! Do you agree?? My thought is to charge $25 for this kit. Would you pay for that? Do you want to purchase one? If so, respond in the comments or send me a quick email to let me know! If I get enough interest, I’ll start making them and getting them out the door!

Now if you aren’t the DIY type, you don’t have to feel left out :-). Move Makeup's Fixit Setting Spray is making it's debut really soon. It has some extra special ingredients that you can't just get anywhere ;-) and it's price tag is a LOT less than a lot of other brands. And it's good for your skin. Can't top that ;-). Be on the lookout for it to show up in the SHOP.

And on that note, let's say adieu! I'll see you next post!
