Girls Night Idea – Have Your Own Makeup Party

Girl’s Night Out Idea – Host Your Own Eyeshadow Party

Your friends are bringing the supplies; you’re just going to set them up to feel pampered.

This does not mean you’re going to spend a lot of money on decorations.  You’re going to spend maybe $7 per person, unless you want to give them the little item I’m suggesting in this video.

INVITATION:

I’m giving you an invitation to make them feel special and to help them look forward to the evening.  Free printable!

I’m giving you a list of 5-7 items for each person’s area that you can spend money on.

Seriously, just being together with no to-do list is a fantastic evening to this girl right here.

But, this idea popped into my head so I’m sharing it with you.  The above video explains and pumps you up so please take a looksy!

Invite no more than 5 other girls to your house for an Eyeshadow Application Party.  Side note: you want a house with good overhead lighting since you’ll be applying eyeshadow.  This would be awesome during the brunch hours b/c of the natural daylight.

Everyone brings her own brushes (all different kinds) and eyeshadows, even the ones she thinks are bad colors.

Your gal pals also need to come with no eye makeup on.

SETTLE THEIR JITTERS:

You are in charge of assuring the women that they will not be judged if they make mistakes, that the protection masks that we women put on to protect our insecurities are down; that they just need to come as they are. 

You are helping everyone at the table be on the same playing field.  We’re all women with insecurities; but red and yellow black and white, we are precious in his sight.  We are just experimenting and getting creative. girls night idea

One idea is to say in the invitation that everyone has to wear yoga pants.

ARRIVAL:

You are going to make your guests feel like queens for the day!

I used long note pads, a cute pen, mirrors that my former Mary Kay friend had for us to borrow, and a makeup baggie

In each MakeUp Baggie, I gifted them two different eyeshadow brushes-the two most important brushes:  Eyeshadow Brush and a Blending Brush.  If you can afford one more brush, I recommend a Crease Brush since you’re using five colors in the video above.  Please watch the video; it’s a gorgeous arrangement of colors!

Cotton Balls

Hair Band to keep the hair out of their eyes if needed

If you have the money, you could buy each one the cutest trinket around these days…this Blushing Lady MakeUp Brush Cup

If you don’t have the money, maybe you could decorate a white styrofoam cup just like her!  My above video shows you the styrofoam version; she’s adorable!

Two Vacation Travel Packing Lists – Kids and Adults

Here are two Vacation Packing Lists for Travel and can be used in your Me and My Big Ideas – Create 365 – The Happy Planner. These FREE printable travel lists help you and your child take a mental snapshot of your day.

I created one vacation packing list for your child. Do you make lists for your child? Do you make the list for everyone all at once, or one piece of paper? Do you do it by family member?

My 12 year old is old enough to pack his own suitcase, but he wants me to make the list for him. It’s important that he practice this (in my former teacher’s opinion). Then, when he goes to pack again, I bet you money that he will have this mental image while picking out clothes.

You OR Your child writes in each circle the outfit she will wear, along with shoes and pajamas, swimsuit, swim shoes, hair bow, deodorant, nasal drops, or their lifelong stuffed animal (Horsie). Usually, girls appreciate a cute printable on which to make their list. My boy could care less. But I like the visual of this; it’s like a School Planner, divided into sections or Pictures of Their Day.

For you grown ups, I created a list broken into Morning, Noon and Night.  I’ve also included blank printables in case you want to customize either vacation packing list.

Eyeshadow Tutorial – Academic Approach

These eyeshadow tips for applying eyeshadow with an academic approach will be easy and smart. Using your brain to test different colors against your face will set the stage for smart eyeshadow application. Where you put your weight on your brush, where you first place your brush, and where you apply the eyeshadow is different for each color and eye. The purpose of eyeshadow is to lighten and brighten and to give some shadows for depth/different moods. 

Jesus Chris is in me and I am in Christ!  Knowing that makes my eyes come alive, and I approach daily chores and people with a more positive attitude when I can stand on that truth.

All that to say: this is just for fun so you can be creative and have fun with eyeshadow IF you want wear it that day.  I’ve watched YouTube videos so I’m kind of self taught.  These are all my un-trained opinions based on my experiences.

What I wore:

Milani Plum Palette

Japonesque Palette
It Cosmetics Precision Brush

Mary Kay Colors:
Sweet Cream
Hazelnut
Copper Glow
I also use their Eye Primer.

Plan With Me – Five Routines for Your Happy Planner

Thanks for POPping over…

My name is Laurie, and I make YouTube videos about Ideas That POP into my head – travel ideas, home ideas, makeup ideas that POP into my head.

Today, we’re “Happily” Planning April.  In my Happy Planner I’m decorating April. I’m still in love with my Happy Planner  – Create 365 – Mambi Planner – Me & My Big Ideas Planner.  In this video you will Plan With Me and see my 5 Routines for Each New Month in My Happy Planner.  

***How do you plan-with your laptop calendar or your small phone calendar?  Let me know in the comments.

I’m going through my washi and stickers because I’m trying to match the washi and stickers for this month.  For now I have time to think about that.  If you see my other video about Changes I Made to My Happy Planner, you’ll see that everything does NOT have to match.

Five Routines for a New Month

To ease your stress, I’ve created five things to put on your to-do list that you will do at the end of every single month.  Experience a stress-free , seamless transition to the next month.  In the video above, I walk you through those five routines.

What I loved:

If y’all haven’t tried a hard cover before, I highly recommend this one.  I feel like it protects my pages better.  And I LOVE the aqua color.  Super easy to change out the covers.
