I hope you all had a nice weekend!

Today, I want to talk to you about makeup. Honestly, I'm not a big makeup fan. I'm really just a blush & gloss girl. But when formal occasions come up, I need to whip out the eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick.

I had a ball while streamlining my make-up bag...not because I want to put on some, but because I have to get rid of many tubes, pots and compacts. And you know me, these won't go directly to the trash, they'll go from blah to TADA!

The first on the list is mascara.
Experts say, you can only keep mascara for 3 to 4 months.

If you can no longer wear it,
treat it like paint!

TADA! I made my own gift wrapper!

Simply smear it on tissue paper for your
own version of modern art.

Allow to dry for at least 24 hours.

Then use it as gift wrapping paper!

Add a ribbon in a contrasting color.

Smear some on card stock.

And make matching gift tags!
