Pretend Make-up for Toddlers
We recently celebrated a birthday at my house. I wanted to share this little gift with you-It was a HUGE hit, cheap, easy, and cute!
My little girl loves mommy's make-up.
What little girl doesn't?
I looked and looked for a pretend make-up set,
but all of the "pretend" ones, have REAL make-up in them.
So instead I went to the dollar store, picked up a few eyeshadow and blushes with brushes.
I came home and cleaned them out, and then poured different colors of NAIL POLISH in them.
Let them dry in the garage.
Worked like a charm, my girl adores it, and it looks very very real. In fact my husband always asks me if its my make-up when he see's her...occupied.
Quick tip: The eyeshadow is a little gross to clean out, I used soap and water on the first one, and on the second one I just kept it dry and cleaned it out with a popsicle stick. I would recommend keeping it dry and chipping it out. . .
Really makes you think about what is in that stuff....yuck!!
