Using Mineral Makeup

When applying mineral makeup, please keep the following things in mind:
  • Start with a clean face
  • Using the right brushes is the key. Affordable Mineral Makeup offers several different Kabuki brushes that are great at applying foundation, blush, primer, veil, etc.
  • Use the right colors suited for you. If you don't know what color you are, try different samples to find the right shade. Mix shades together to get the right shade for you.
  • Start with light layers, then build from there. You can always add more if the coverage is not enough for you. Remember it is always easier to add than to take away.
  • If you are mixing your mineral makeup with water, do so in a different container. This will keep the rest of your minerals dry so they do not become contaminated.
  • If you have never used mineral makeup before, it may take some time and practice to learn to apply and feel comfortable doing it. Just remember "Practice makes perfect"

Multi-Use Products

I have always loved products that have multiple uses. A product having multiple uses not only helps save money, it helps save space. And that is exactly what you get with the Carpet Sprinkles from Enchanted Potions. This product is made from Sodium Bicarbonate (fancy name for baking soda) and fragrance/essential oil. That's it. Two little ingredients. But with so many uses.
This product can be used, as the name implies, as a carpet sprinkle. Just lightly dust onto carpets, leave sit for a few minutes, and vacuum up. You will be left with a light, refreshing scent.

Another use for around the home is an all-purpose cleaner. Simply mix 1/4 cup of white vinager with 1 quart of water. Slowly add this to 2 tablespoons of the Carpet Sprinkle. This will bubble and fizz a little. When the bubbling stops, pour into a spray bottle, and use as any other cleaner.
The Carpet Sprinkle also works as a great laundry booster. Add 1 - 2 tablespoons to your washing maching with your regular laundry detergent. You will be left with clothes that have a light, lingering scent. You can also pair this up with a Dryer Sachet in the same scent.

Along with helping with household odors, the Carpet Sprinkle can also multi-purpose for pampering yourself. Use it as a foot soak by dissolving 1/2 cup of the Carpet Sprinkle in 1 gallon of warm water in your foot bath.

And yet another use, when ordering the Carpet Sprinkle with an essential oil instead of fragrance oil, you can use it as an exfoliate for your face. Mix 1 tablespoon of the Carpet Sprinkle with 1-1/2 teaspoons of water, and gently rub in circular motions on your face. Rinse well. Note, this is not recommended on sensitive skin, and only use on skin if ordering in essential oil fragrances.
