I love checking out to see what’s currently trending on Google, Pinterest, Youtube and all the other popular social media channels we are all hooked on. It’s just so interesting to see what’s peaking everyone’s curiosity these days. I was quite excited to see that a beauty DIY was trending on YouTube and I thought it was the perfect segment to share with you lovelies. I love DIYs and have a Pinterest board specifically for ones that I feel are actually, “doable”.
Who doesn’t love those little lipbalm balls that come in pretty colors and yummy scents? I know my daughter sure loves them, and she’s only 3! Every time we are at a checkout counter and she see the popular EOS lip balms, she’s always asking for one. “Mommy, can you get some of that lipstick?”. Yes, at the tender age of 3, she’s already asking for, makeup! Definitely MY daughter, for sure.
What’s Up Moms is a YouTube stationed produced by moms, “To inspire, inform and sometimes make you laugh.”. Now, I’m not a huge YouTuber, but this channel definitely seems like one I’ve been missing. They run 3 segments/week and seem consistent with their different themes.
Ok, now back to the DIY. The link above gives you the whole kitten caboodle for this project. I will tell you this though, it’s not only a, “Must See”, it’s simple and requires not a whole lot of preparation. The supplies you need can be purchased from Michaels and your favorite grocery store.
Yes, I’m sure you’re thinking, “Why not just save yourself the trouble and buy your lipbalm from a store?” Well, the fun thing about doing it yourself, is, you can do it as a Mom/Daughter project. Or, if you don’t have a little girl, making them yourself and coming up with different, pretty and creative ideas for packaging can make for a sweet gift for someone. I think anything, handmade, is so much more special than store bought anyway! Wouldn’t you agree?
