Save Old Makeup for Crafts

Don't throw away any old or unwanted makeup and nail polish that you may have. They are a wonderful alternative to crayons, paint markers, or coloring pencils.

I use mine when making cards with stamps. The eyeshadow blends very well in place of colored pencils. Blushes and powders work well also. The glitter polish and eyeshadow work very well when you want to add some shimmer and glitter to a card or craft.

Use your imagination and you will be using all of your old makeup instead of trashing it.

Great idea! I was envisioning using brown eyeshadow for hair or eyes. Rouge for flowers. Easter eggs, paper projects, dolls... Possibilities are endless!

Plus, if you make cotton dolls, you can make them up too! Great tip...thumbs up times 10 if I could!

If you and kids are coloring fuzzy posters or pictures, use of nail polish will enhance the pix. We colored dragon slayer poster. We used leftover nail polish with glitter, little hearts within, etc. to go over the paint. It gave the poster nice 3D effect.
