HOMEMADE BEAUTY for Summer



Since it's currently, I believe the meteorological term is, 90 fucking degrees outside, I thought I'd put a summer spin on this video I had been wanting to make for a while. I picked up Homemade Beauty by Annie Strole months ago at Terrain. The illustrations on the cover are what initially grabbed me, but then I realized that homemade cosmetics are the ultimate cruelty-free. The only things harmed during the creation of these products were my leggings because I spilled the cornstarch.

In the video I follow the recipes for Body Powder, Cooling Mint Face Spray and De-Puffing Cucumber-Aloe Eye Gel. These were some of the more summer-specific products that I could see myself using, but there's a ton of other stuff in the book that I want to try.

Now I'm going to go stuff my pillowcases in the freezer and try not to let anything around me touch me, ever.
