DIY: Makeovers

Though I'm not doing the "Summer Diary" series this year, I am taking every advantage of breaks between packing & moving to come up with something fun to do with the girls. Today I let my girls go wild with my makeup. More specifically, we gave each other makeovers. The picture at the top is "Before" & "After" the 10 year old attacked my face. As she was applying the makeup, Zoey asked me, "Mom? Do you think zombies are pretty?" 

Then, to keep the fun going, I decided to draw faces on some plain white paper with a permanent black artist marker. A sharpie will work just as well too. As I sketched, the girls had many requests: 
"Give mine freckles!" 
"Can that one have a double chin?"
"Zig-zag hair, please."
The girls spent a couple hours playing the part of makeup artist.

And they made a fine fun mess!


  1. haha that is awesome and very brave of you.I will try to get the courage to let my kids do that, only problem is, the 3 of them will want to do a make over on me at the same time.

  2. What fabulous fun it looks like you had. Love the idea of drawing the faces.

  3. It's been way too long since i checked in on you. Your girls are growing so much!!
    LOVE these faces. I was going to ask if you had a pdf of them so I could print them myself. LOVE them!!!!!!!!!

    Hope you are great!!
