I have a friend out in California, named Ahna, that makes handmade mineral makeup, soap, perfume, and much more. I wanted to tell you guys about her because I just got in an order from her today. I have been wearing her makeup for quite a while now, maybe a little over a year, and I absolutely love it. It covers and leaves my face looking like it's been airbrushed without hiding my freckles that I like to show off, and it feels like nothing is there. Her eye shadows last forever, you can put it on in the morning and it will still be there in the evening. Last year I was frequently going to the dentist having my front tooth replaced and I wore her makeup to the dentist's office and came out of there looking the same way I did when I left. Now I don't know how your dentist is but mine always get water on every single part of my face. Before using this makeup I came out of the dentist's office with makeup streaming down my face, now I don't have that problem.
Her perfumes smell divine. There isn't one that I don't like. The one I received today is called After Midnight. This is a scent she remade and I think everyone should have it. It has a beautiful mixture of Rose, Vanilla, Cedarwood, Amber, and something else, I can't remember what the last scent is lol. I absolutely LOVE IT! It's got a warm, inviting scent to it and everyone who has smelled it absolutely loves it.
Along with the perfume I got a big jar of her French Clay Mask. I haven't tried it yet because I'm not too clear on the instructions and I don't want to waste a whole lot of it trying to figure it out but I will be using it as soon as Ahna gives me further directions on using it. I got a jar of eye shadow called Hazel and it is exactly the color you would expect of hazel leaning to the brown side. I also got a sample of a new shade of eye shadow called Reason which is a pink shade and is absolutely beautiful. If your interested in checking out her makeup, and believe me she has everything under the sun except for mascara, check out itouchroses.com, itouchroses.etsy.com, and artcreated.com. At Art Created she sells her makeup as well as her jewelry, her paintings, and photography.
And for the witch in all of us, check out her friend's shop, agonysdecay.etsy.com! I hadn't heard of this one until she sent me a sample of soap from this shop. The sample I got is one little green skull and it looks and smells good enough to eat. Thankfully there is a very helpful sticker right on the bag that tells you Do Not Eat! It's Soap! and there is a cute little spider hanging around the top right corner of the sticker. It is the cutest thing ever. I strolled on over to that new shop and there's some pretty neat stuff there. You'll find handmade jewelry with a gothic twist, soaps, hair accessories, gift tags, and much more.
If you decide you like Ahna's makeup, when you order, let her know Amber sent you. That's my real name, I'm not trying to hide from you guys but from certain members of my family lol. This does not apply over at Agonys Decay
