Too cute! This creative & crafty mom & blogger dreamt up a way to make fun, faux makeup for her little girls and I wanted to share it with you all. Simply fill empty eyeshadow palettes with extra nail polish and let dry until it’s hardened. You can also coat the inside of an old bottle of polish and let it dry to create a toy that’s safe, clean and just about as authentic as it gets!

Funny enough, a common question people ask me on facebook and via twitter is what lipstick I’m wearing. It seems as if I’m always on the search for the perfect pink/nude hue. In a pinch, I’ll revert back to my old standby trick (dabbing concealer on my lips for a nude base and then applying whatever pink gloss I can find first). But recently, I found a gloss that eliminates the layering step – GloMinerals gloss in Pink Blossom. Kathie Lee has now become a fan and I’m passing the tubes all throughout the makeup room at TODAY.
I also love that proceeds from the sale of this color go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Win/win! I hope this helps any interested parties out there.
This morning on TODAY, I shared skin solutions to help you get younger, smoother looking skin without having to go to a salon. Watch the video above and click here for more info.
