Here is an easy tutorial for a D.I.Y. play Makeup for your little makeup enthusiast.
Do you have a little one that loves to put on makeup? I know I do, every time I do my makeup I have this sweet little girl looking at me. In the sweetest voice, she asks to use my make up. When I say no she gets so sad but when I say yes, unfortunately, It ends up everywhere. My makeup ends up getting scrapped up and is all over and the makeup doesn’t seem to turn out the way she wants. As you can see below from how upset she was lol.
I really didn’t want my makeup to be destroyed and knew I need to find a solution. So, I decided why not make her pretend makeup. If you have old makeup containers and nail polish then you are good to go. If not just head to the dollar store.
D.I.Y Play Makeup
To begin scrap and clean out all the old makeup.
Then, simply pour the nail polish into the containers but not all the way to the top. The smell is really strong so leave it open and let it dry outside or in the garage. You might notice it dried but has the design that is on the bottom of the make up container. This is why I didn’t fill it up. I then add more nail polish to the top and again let it dry overnight. Once it is dry I put the makeup applicators back with the makeup and put it in a makeup bag just for her.
She was so excited when she saw her makeup set. Now we do our makeup together and I don’t have to clean her face afterward. I hope the DIY will help you (and your makeup) out with the little ones. Let me know if you give it a try or have your own little pretend makeup tricks.
