So, we may be cutting it a little close...seeing as TONIGHT is New Year's Eve. But, let's remember something. You're a crafty bitch, and we are fairly confident you can make these quick, fun and GLAM shoes happen before the ball drops.
1. DIY Tinted Lip Balm: In a hurry for some light and luscious lip balm? Take a small scrapping of eye shadow (loose or otherwise) in your favorite color (natural colors work best). Add the shadow to a glob of Vaseline. Mix with a q-tip. Store in an old contact lens case for easy transport. Voila- custom balm.
What do Estee Lauder, MAC, Clinique, Bare Minerals and hundreds of other brands all have in common? A tendency to charge outrageous amounts of money for approximately 3 oz of magical make up brush cleaner. Do we know what's in it? NO. Do we still buy it? YES. This semi guilty pleasure and seemingly necessary product ranges anywhere from $8-$30 on average and lasts all of two weeks. I'm not saying it doesn't work. It totally does. But what isn't working for me is the price tag.
So, if you're a DIY-er like myself (and/or hate throwing $20 bills at things like 'cleanser') than this post is especially for you.
