VALENTINE’S DAY PARTY ALERT:
MAKE LIPSTICK WITH YOUR GIRLS
The hype around Valentine’s Day and romantical relationships can be overwhelming–especially if you’re flying solo or in an “it’s complicated” situation with a S.O. (And let’s face it, who isn’t?)
But Valentine’s Day should be for celebrating *all* the people we love–whether they’re friends, family or someone you like, like that.
So in addition to celebrating with your main squeeze or side piece, we love the idea of gathering your group of girls to hang and honor your friendships, too. We’re also loving Handmade Beauty Box, a party in a box that includes everything you need to get crafty and make something you and your girls will use–beauty products.
This month’s box features supplies to make all-natural lipstick for six or more kissers–rose-y pigments, measurers, containers and pre-mixed hydrating base that includes coconut oil, beeswax, sweet almond oil and avocado oil. (Upcoming boxes will feature moisturizing cuticle cream, nail polish and powdered bronzer.)
This DIY is refreshingly simple–no crowding around a confusing YouTube video or making last-minute supply runs required–because everything is portioned out as you need it. So this weekend, why not invite your besties over, throw on some Taylor Swift, get crafty in the kitchen and send everyone walking with a homemade lipstick–and a deeper appreciation for friendships with the gurls.
To get your party started, Handmade Beauty Box has set us up with a box to giveaway to a lucky reader. To enter, simple use the comments field–or on Facebook–to tell us why you love to kick it with your girls. Happy Valentine’s Day and Big Love!
