a fellow artsy friend of mine is doing a trade with me, and she requested a custom green lipstick! I wanted to take a quick snapshot of what it would look like on the eyes and lips.
sooo this has inspired me to translate each color into both tubes and tins, so everyone can pick and choose how they’d like to play with their palette.
I also totally want to release a mermaid-inspired set for the summer…
thanks, darling friend for the idea![ follow her on tumblr / etsy ]made w/ my own hand-cranked LOCAL coconut oil, and LOCAL beeswax, all from Miami, FL. pigments are strictly iron oxides and micas.

Beso natural lip butters are coming soon <3
These are made with local materials sourced from Miami, Florida, made 100% from scratch, by hand. There is still a lot of work to be done before they end up being listed in the shop, but I had too much fun with these photos that I had to share!
The colors are based on different tropical fruits that are popularly grown and eaten here in South Florida.
Colors from left to right: Original, papaya, guava, mango, passionfruit, coconut.
See these in action!

I’ve been a busy bee, handcranking coconut oil and collecting beeswax for Kae Q’s BESO COLOR BALMS. These are made with local materials sourced from Miami, Florida, made 100% from scratch, by hand. There is still a lot of work to be done before they end up being listed in the shop, but I had too much fun with these photos that I had to share!

Hey all! Long time no see. I’ve been on a very long hiatus due to school, work, and personal life issues. Now that I have cleared out a lot of stress, I want to continue creating but can no longer afford to. I have been in a financial rut and I would love some help from everyone to get Kae Q up and running again! Please share this with your friends and family, any amount is greatly appreciated. 

from seed to finish! this is a slubby cotton yarn that started in the dirt and went straight into my hands to be spun. I thank local raspberries and mulberries for the lovely lavender hue. I’ll be knitting up some cute things with this so keep a lookout as always. ❤

curious about my cotton plants? check out the story.

I’ve been designing some icons for Kae Q’s new sugar scrub, Sunshine in a Jar (made with real Florida sugar, coconut oil, and lemon essential oil). but I quite like this aesthetic and I’m thinking I might continue it across all of my products.

I have slowly been preparing dye baths while I spin and knit my cotton. pictured are avocado pits, leftover tea, and homegrown nasturtium flowers and rosemary.
