DIY: Makeup Setting Spray

You know when you apply your makeup and it is just on point, but then you don’t have setting spray to keep that radiant look throughout the day. Well I decided to make my own makeup setting spray, so I can save money to buy more makeup. I did this by reading different articles and researching what works best and what doesn’t. I finally found a method that I think works well which I’ll be using for as long as I am wearing makeup.

The secret ingredients are just roses and glycerine, I have been using my home-made makeup setting spray for about two weeks now and I must say it works like any other setting spray. I was rather impressed with the results because my makeup did last for a while on my face. So I have decided to share this newly home-made, life-changing DIY with all you beautiful people. Even if you don’t wear makeup on the regular, you can use the spray as a mist to keep your face hydrated in all seasons.


  1. One rose ( preferably from a garden.)
  2. Water.
  3. *Glycerine
  4. A spray bottle.

*For my South African readers you can find glycerine at Clicks stores for only R15.95 and you can use glycerine for almost anything, this little bottle is pretty magical.

‘Tis the Season of the Gemini

So my birthday week has officially come to an end and now it is time to prepare for the stressful time of the year known as exams. From the day of birthday I have had a wonderful time and felt so loved and appreciated by so many people. You never know who you really matter to until you it’s your birthday. The messages and showering of love one receives is so surreal. I am so grateful for the loving efforts that people have shown to me this past week, it really means so much.

I know this isn’t a lifestyle tip post, but I just wanted to share some of my favourite moments with you all, starting with my birthday luncheon. I had so much fun and enjoyed the whole afternoon, everything just came together so perfectly from the decor, to the weather and the company I was surrounded by.
