My daughters always want to "play makeup", but there is no way I'm letting them loose with eye shadow and lipstick. Old wigs? Sure...knock yourselves out.
They keep asking and asking and asking. They're wearing me down! So I decided to make them some "pretend makeup".
Faux makeup...I'll talk you through it. It's easy peasy. Oh! And hang on to those cruddy brushes they give you with blush. Who uses those tiny things, anyway? You'd have a 3/4 stripe on your cheek. Hideous. But...they're great play brushes.
1.Grab some of your old makeup containers that are almost empty. Clean them out. If they're powder, just smush the extra powder and dump it out. If it's a cream, you may have to get in the corners with a q-tip.
2. Wash them with soap and water, then let them dry.
3.Fill each metal compartment with nail enamel. Let dry.
That's it! You're done. Happy kids. End of story.
My girls love it. They put makeup on our dog several times a day.
If you make some for your kids, send me your photos...I'd like to see them!
