A) I’ve perfected the “no makeup” makeup look. My face looks so fresh and dewy people think I roll out of bed singing as birds and random squirrels make my bed.
B) Well, in the past few years makeup hasn’t really been a priority. One time I may have even gotten distracted in the middle of getting ready and ended up at the grocery store with eyeliner on only one eye. Fine, twice.
Whatever you’re style, I think you’re going to love the soft, sheer blush color of this tinted lip balm recipe. It one of my tried-and-true staples that moisturizes and protects, but is light enough to be worn year-round. It’s also made using the same mica powder as this homemade blush, which you can whip up in just a few minutes to go along with your lip balm.
