Since I can never bring myself to buy M.A.C. products, I thought I'd try my hands at making my own finishing spray scented with lavender essential oil. It's very easy to make and I'm totally in love this. It gave my skin an all-day dewy look. To use this, just spray on face and pat lightly as the last touch for your makeup.
Here's how you make it!
- Water (you can use Evian if you want it to be more luxurious)
- Lavender Pure Essential Oil (you may also use Rose, Peppermint or whatever scent you prefer)
- Spray bottle with a fine mist
First, you fill up your spray bottle with water, leaving 1/4 or so of volume left. Fill in the remaining of the bottle with glycerin. Add in about 10 drops of essential oil. Screw on the cap and shake well. Done!
This formula is for those with dry skin, like mine. If you have oily skin, use more water and less glycerin. Remember to shake before every usage. You shouldn't keep this mixture for more than a month as it doesn't contain any preservatives.
Ratio of Water:Glycerin
Dry Skin -- 4:1
Normal Skin -- 6:1
Oily Skin -- 8:1
Try it for yourself!
