Have you ever made lip balm before? Homemade lip balm is one of the easiest cosmetics you can make. It took me less than 5 minutes to make this!
My 3-year-old daughter has been fascinated with makeup lately. She loves to rub sparkle gel over her skin and is always sneaking into her play makeup she got for her birthday (I didn’t buy it for her). I honestly prefer her not to wear any of her play makeup because it isn’t good for her! Many makeup products contain phthalates, which are toxic and linked to reproductive abnormalities.
Keeping it natural is the way to go! Now, when my little 3-year-old wants to be a little glamorous I can pull out this lip balm and let her go to town.
