Hey guys! So the other night I did a Facebook Live to show you all how you can basically enhance your natural beauty with all-natural products- that are probably already in your kitchen!!! I literally pulled out 3 ingredients and some makeup brushes and made some fun beauty enhancers!
So here it is: 3 ingredients to make 4 products!
Product 1: Brown/Tan Eye Shadow!!!
Mix together your cocoa powder and arrowroot until you find “your brown”. Get a makeup brush for your eyelids and apply (avoid eyes).
Variation: Red or Pink Eye Shadow:
Mix together your beet root powder and arrowroot until you find “your pink”. Get a makeup brush for your eyelids and apply (avoid eyes).
*Want different colors? Leave me a comment and I will see what nature’s options are!
Product 2: Blush!!!
See that beet root powder? It can also be added to the cheeks for blush- hellooooo good looking!!!
Product 3: Powder Foundation!!!
You see that cocoa powder? Yup, pick it back up. Find your color by mixing again with the arrowroot. Get your foundation brush and go to town (avoiding the eyes)!
Product 4: Dry Shampoo!!!
Ok guys, I kid you not- you see that foundation you just made? Do the same thing but mix it up to best match your hair color (blondes may not need any cocoa powder and redheads may want some beet root!). Take that combination and gently massage it onto your scalp for a little “freshening up” – great for the busy mama’s!!! ❤
And there you have it!! Some ideas on how to quickly and easily enhance your beauty. Next Facebook DIY, I will be showing you all how to get some va-va-voom VOLUME back in your hair – NATURALLY. 😉

They say the eyes are the window to your soul – and for good reason. Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes and got an intuitive feeling about that person? If they’re kind, if they are angry, sad, happy…. The eyes share what the rest of our body has been trained by society not to. Shakira says that “hips don’t lie” but Bobbie-jo says “eyes don’t lie” 🙂 – you simply have to know how to read them. As a psychotherapist, I have been trained to do a lot of body language detecting.
As the Mason-Dixon DIY Diva, I want to help you keep those eyes and the rest of your body as healthy as possible by avoiding the junk in typical cosmetics that have a lot of controversy and debatable ingredients around them. Without naming names or companies, I will share about one I recently saw on the news, where Asbestos was reportedly found in makeup for kids. The report went so far as to say that if kids continued to use that makeup, they could be facing serious health problems (actually the researcher said death) by the ages of 30 and 40. Wow. Now that’s a problem.
So what I do in my DIY segments on TV, my blog, and at my local and international classes online, is show people how to make thier own natural products.
In the latest T.V. segment, I was asked to show how to make a natural makeup. So of course I went with the eyes- the window to the soul. ❤
Here is the recipe that I use when making my own Natural Eyeliner/Mascara.
I personally use ingredients in my natural DIY products that are organic, non-GMO and as close to toxin-free as physically possible 🙂
3/4 tsp Beeswax
1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Shea Butter
2 tsp Aloe Vera gel
*Melt ingredients with a double boiler slowly under low heat (caution: heat means hot. So be sure to keep away from children, pets, yourself etc). Once liquified, add 1/4tsp activated charcoal. Blend gently. If you want to use as a mascara, add to an empty, new tube using a funnel. To use as an eyeliner, add to container and use an eyeliner brush to apply.
**as always, use at your own risk and don’t get it in your eyes. **
Have a great Sunday you all!! 💙 If you like this recipe and found this blog helpful, share it with your friends. We can live healthier- together 🙂
Hey guys!! Thanks for watching today and Thank you for having me again, Daytime Blue Ridge! You all are AWESOME!!
You want to see the show?? Who wants the recipe??? This stuff works GREAT and is GOOD FOR YOU- oh, and super affordable – oh and – you should definitely come make more organic non-GMO stuff with us if you’re in the area! And if you’re not- I’m just as cute on Facebook Live!!! 😂😂😂😂❤❤❤ ❤❤
Ok so here’s a story for you guys! I have not been to an ABC Store much in my life. I’m just not much for drinking alcohol. Pass me a coffee any day! Double Espresso with Cream? Sold! However, I came across a recipe for a hand sanitizer that required Vodka. So I rolled into the parking lot in my Mom. Van, wearing what I can only hope aren’t Mom Jeans, and tried to pretend that I knew what I was doing and in there 😂 Some guys next to me- guessing they are college kids- were talking about how the bigger the bottle of alcohol, the better their time would be… (*Eye Roll*)And I was all “Mom at the ABC Store” thinking, ok which one of these bottles is cheapest? All they all made the same? Are there any organic? Non-GMO? Where’s the ingredient list? 😂
Anyway I get to the register with my little bottle of Vodka (I only needed a few tablespoons after all) and the “good time” guys are coming up behind me with their wheelbarrel load of whiskey. I am getting out my money and patiently waiting to get asked for my ID. The older gentleman ringing me out made small talk about soda taxes and beer and NEVER ASKED FOR MY ID. I mean come on, girl’s still got it!!! …. Right? ….. And that’s when this whole thing hit me and I had a run in with reality: I really DO drive a Mom Van, these probably ARE Mom Jeans, and yes, this Vodka truly IS being used for a hand sanitizer recipe. So….when was *that moment* for you? I would love to hear about it! Maybe we can share our stories and laugh because yeah, obviously, we still got it 😉
Have you ever started something in your life, not really sure where it would go, and then you look back awhile later and think, WOW!! Didn’t see that coming… Well, that is me with DIY classes. I started teaching them in March of 2016, and had no idea that in a little over a year’s time I would have to start LIMITING the number of participants per class. WOW! My goal in doing these classes and starting my DIY business is to help you all make choices NOW that the FUTURE YOU is going to be soooo grateful for. I’ve done the research. I know what is out there. And it’s junk. I hate the thought of people putting today’s every day products on and in their bodies, so I transitioned a bit from my career as a psychotherapist and started branching out and showing people how to empower themselves in their health. There is such a HUGE mind-body connection. Did you know that your everyday choices have a strong effect on your mind and body? And did you also know that we make THOUSANDS of such choices everyday???
THAT IS WHY I TEACH THESE CLASSES. ❤
Thanks to you all for loving these classes (seriously- thank you!!!)!! I have been adding on more classes and now I have set up event links for purchasing tickets for what you want to make at the classes. When the classes get really big, I miss out on an element that I sincerely LOVE- getting to know YOU. With big class sizes, I am so busy “behind the scenes” making sure that things run smoothly so people can have fun and take home an amazing product, but I miss out on getting to interact with you all.
You will see now that all the classes will have links where you will be purchasing your products to make on Eventbrite. It is a site I have used many times for ordering in the past so I know it has a good reputation. This is going to help us streamline the getting started process at our events and will cut down on long lines 🙂 Simply show your ticket to the person at the door and they will give you the items you need for the class. There are limited quantities of tickets for each class and when they are gone, they’re gone. If you miss a class, message me on my FB page called “Bobbie-jo” and request it-I will see what I can do!
Here is the link for our class this Saturday- Deodorants and Bath Bombs at 2pm-4pm. 8115 Williamson Road Roanoke VA. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Thanks guys! Excited to get together with you all soon! ❤
A friend contacted me yesterday and said, “Bobbie-jo, what do you have for skin tags?” My memory came flooding back- before I was the DIY Diva, I was (and still am by licenses and degrees) a psychotherapist. Well, there used to be a skin tag right where my necklaces would fall and remember how much it would IRRITATE me during sessions. So I realized IT HAD TO GO. But I didn’t want nasty chemicals infiltrating my body for those gross “skin tag removers” they sell at the store! So I did some research, bought a bottle of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (I recommend Bragg’s because it has ‘the mother’) and began taking dabbing the spot with a cotton ball dipped in ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) a few times per day (I literally kept my little soaked cotton ball in a container that I could easily grab). Do you know what? That thing turned red, then it turned black and then it was GONE!!! It NEVER grew back and there is NO mark where it once was. (See pic below- NO SKIN TAG! WOOO!!!). Natural Alternatives For The Win!

You know, I always thought if I were going to be on TV (because come on, who doesn’t think about that?!), it would be on my own Reality TV Show (dream big, people! hahah) and here I am, doing a true form of a Reality Show- DIY on Live TV. Did you all know that it is LIVE? That means if I make a bad joke (or a Freudian Slip- where are my psych people at?!), there’s NO getting it back! LOL! Thanks for loving me, thanks for watching and thanks for all your sweet encouragement! YOU ARE THE REASON I do what I do!! ❤ Bobbie-jo Read More
Hey guys! So if you watched the show on WSLS10, I *TOTALLY *went all sudsy on TV!! 🙂 It was SO MUCH FUN and everyone at the station were wonderful and friendly! And guess what??? THEY ASKED ME BACK!! Y’all want to see another DIY?!?! Post below what natural product you would like to see “re-born” with NATURAL ingredients that are GOOD for you and your family!!! And, tell me WHY you want a NATURAL version of this product! If your idea gets chosen, I WILL MENTION YOUR NAME ON TV- WOO- INSTANT STAR STATUS!! 😉 🙂
Wow!!! So here it is, the morning of my big *debut* and I haven’t slept yet!!! I think I’m excited?! But I maaaaaay just be a teensy, tiny bit *FREAKED OUT!* hahah 🙂
Thank you WSLS10 and specifically Leslie for inviting me on the show- it wasn’t an avenue I had considered previously for my DIY classes, but how awesome is this?!?! I consider it a GIFT straight from GOD to have been offered this super fun opportunity- and not just the opportunity to show a DIY class on TV- but the opportunity I have already had and will continue to have- meeting all of you!!!!
There are SOOOO many of us that are tired of the junk in our products and have decided that enough is enough. Personally, I would rather pay now with some invested time into seeking out, making and using TRULY NATURAL PRODUCTS as opposed to paying for it later with what could potentially be my health. Nope. That’s not something I am willing to gamble on for me and my family. Are you?
My NEXT CLASS is July 22, 2017 from 2pm-4pm at St. Phillip’s Lutheran Church in Roanoke, VA. This is going to be your opportunity to MAKE YOUR OWN SOAP!! The workshop is free to attend and all are welcome! If you would like to make a soap to take home, it is $5.00 each.
Please RSVP on my FB Page called “Bobbie-jo” under Pages and then under Events. *If that is too much thinking (I’ve been there before- too busy- no time!) just slip me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!) before July 19th so I can guarantee that you will have your supplies ready!!! 🙂
Can I just tell you that I am already so excited to meet you?! 🙂 I taught my very first class over 20 years ago and have been teaching DIY classes for over 1.5 years. Each time we all have so much fun! I have met some of my closest friends through these DIY classes and am SO GLAD I decided to do these!!!
Ok, So I will see you in a few weeks! Until then, send me a message, say hi, and get connected with my FB page and by subscribing to my blog! I am always sharing awesome DIY tips, recipes and of course- CLASSES!!! 🙂
