Cup of cocoa, anyone?

Cocoa eyeshadow that is.

One day last week, I made up some bronze shimmer eye shadow sticks. They are so pretty! And, they have staying power, and you can layer the color for more or less oomph as you like. Everyone who has tried them has liked them.

This time, at the request of one of my daughters, I went after a cocoa colored shadow. Something that could be worn alone, sheer as a shadow, or applied with a brush as an eyeliner. I subbed in some dark cocoa butter and added brown oxide for a deep, rich, brown color and I think I nailed it:

My other big accomplishment today was making a detangling spray aka hair milk (if it works, I will share the recipe!) that I hope will tame static and help frizzies, too. Now, I’m impatiently waiting for my fragrance oil to arrive so I can make my rainbow soap this weekend and get it curing, and I’m hoping the weather warms up for Easter. It’s not traditional, but we may roast an apple cider brined turkey (I can share that recipe, too, if anyone is interested).

Hope your weekend is fantastic!
