Christmas in July- Make your own play make-up

Want a super fun Christmas gift for your little girl?  Try play make-up!

My daughter LOVES to be "grown-up!" I just am not ready for her to be really grown up. Cue the play make-up! It's kind of ridiculously expensive and to be honest it's just junk. I feel like the stuff is REALLY hard to wash off too! I made my daughter her own set of make-up the other day and I thought I'd share it with you.

You will need the following items:
empty make-up containers
nail polish

Wash out the empty make-up containers and dry them well.

(If you don't have any empty ones you are willing to share then you can always go to the dollar store and buy some there and empty them out.)
Choose the colors of nail polish you wish to use. I chose a cream for the "foundation," a rose color for the "blush," and some vivid greens for "eye shadow." Shake your nail polish really well and let set for a minute to allow the air bubbles to rise. Then, carefully pour the selected color into the container of your choosing.

Set them up and away from curious fingers (and husbands) and let them air dry for 3-4 days. After that time they will be sufficiently dry and will look amazingly real!

Present them to your princess in a cute make-up bag and let her play!
