Natural Beet Blush Recipe

It is has been a quite along time since I took Lori Nova's Mineral Make-up class.  In her class we used alot of different minerals to create a blush, foundation and eye shadow.  I took her class at DeAnza College way back in 2008. She still teaches this class at her studio in Point Richmond a couple time a year. If you are interested in taking this class, check out The Nova Studio Website  But if you are looking for a quick recipe to try, I found this Natural Beet Blush recipe from Nature's Garden that looks quite interesting that used beet root for coloring.

Tile Inlay Cold Process Tutorial

When I saw this Title Inlay Cold Process Tutorial on the Soap Queen site I thought it was totally cool!  In my crafting experience I have only done one title mosaic and that was way back when I worked at the Event Coordinator for the Michael's store in Redwood City.  Within the various building techniques and styles, the mosaic is among the most popular and recognizable. Created by placing small, multi-colored pieces of stone within cement, mosaics can be found in many Roman buildings.This tutorial was inspired by intricate mosaics, this Tile Inlay Cold Process project is sure to wow. With a cold process base and pieces of melt and pour to create the design, this soap brings together both soaping techniques.

Olive Oil Scrub Tutorial

The Soap Queen has started a new series on her site called Roman Holiday.  And the first project in this series is a simple Olive Oil Scrub.
According to the Soap Queen, this scrub is perfect for the legs and body.  It is scented with the warm citrusy Neroli and Shea Blossom which leaves a wonderful light scent that is perfect for summer.  Remember that this is an oil scrub so be careful when getting out of the bath or shower because it can make the bottom of your tub or shower slippery.
