Aloe & Water Proof Mascara
As you walk down the aisle, your eyes will be the first thing your fiancé tries to catch before being embraced by your full beauty. A few weeks leading up to the wedding, take a mascara brush and have it ready for this DIY recipe. Take a fresh aloe leaf and add the gel to a small container. Next, add a tsp of Castor oil to the container and mix the 2 ingredients together. Lastly, apply this simple formula to your mascara brush and brush your eyelashes once a day. This formula will naturally increase the growth of your eyelashes, making them longer and thicker. Once you have a desirable outcome, decrease the use of your gel to 1-2 times a week. Lastly, on the day of the wedding, apply waterproof mascara rather than any other. This is your big day, and marrying the love of your life can be an emotional experience. No bride wants to have mascara running down her face in the wedding photos.
Rose Water Setting Spray
Need a setting spray, but don’t want the extra chemicals? Here’s a recipe to fix the problem. Take an old perfume bottle and wash out the excess liquids before use. If you don’t have a low or old perfect bottle, simply buying a cheap spray bottle will work as well. Take a saucer pan and fill it up with water until there is a centimeter gap between the rim of the water and the top. Then, turn the stove top on high. Once the water is boiling, add enough rose petals until the area is completely covered. When it comes to the roses, each rose has a different scent. It is better preferred that you use the same roses for this recipe. Boil the rose petals until the color is completely drained from the petal. Once the color is no longer there, dispose of the petal and let the water sit until cool. Once cool, pour the water into your spray bottle and there you go. Your very own, homemade setting spray. Not only is this spray good as a makeup finisher, but is also a nice face mist and natural perfume.
