Kaylee loves watching me get ready in the morning and always wants me to put my makeup on her. Um….she’s not quite 3 years old yet, a bit too young for that. I had a hard time finding anything that would be age appropriate for her. Do they not make fake plastic makeup anymore? Maybe I just didn’t look in the right places because all I could find was pretend “real” makeup and what a mess that would be.
I did a google image search for “felt makeup” and a pattern on etsy popped up.
I didn’t want to spend any money, so I just looked at the photo and re-created it to the best of my abilities and this is what we came up with! She liked the little eye shadow applicator from a pack I had in my bathroom, so we just kept it, but it would have been easy to make one to match out of felt as well.
I couldn’t find any tutorials for making felt makeup. Etsy was the only thing that popped up and there were a few patterns and pre-made sets available. Hopefully my instructions weren’t too confusing, feel free to ask me questions!
