DIY Eyebrows and Eyelashes FAIL; lessons learned. Saturday- A Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge: Beauty Edition

Hey my people. Lets get real and talk about the DIY life. We all know this is MUCH more than just doing it yourself. It’s caring, researching, contemplating, winging it, testing, succeeding and…..FAILING.

Day 6. A big fat fail. DIY eyebrows and eyelashes. A Week of Zero Waste DIY Challenge: Beauty Edition.

Aloe gel, beeswax, coco powder, 5 tries, 2 glasses of wine, black tears. DIY eyebrow tinted gel and DIY mascara DOESN’T work, at least not right now with the tools I have currently. Humidity done-zo. Sweating, No. Swimming, don’t even think about it. So cheers, to my go-green, frugal sisters (and brothers, but letzbehonest) out there. I have also given DIY mascara a fair shot, using it for 6+ months.

My first public fail. There will be more I promise you that. I learn and grow more with fails, unfortunately.

The lessons I’ve learned:

-humility is key

-be a tad bit more prepared

-don’t procrastinate (will always be learning)

-failing is good, it’s real, it’s life

-screw vanity, societal beauty, and fame

-nothing is THAT important, the world doesn’t revolve around me

-sometimes zero waste is the opposite

-laugh at yourself everyday

-dishes suck (already knew that)

Wow, I should do this more.
