Have A Beautiful Easter!
Who says the Easter Bunny only comes for kids? This year, we suggest putting together a fun Easter Basket for the Fabulous Beauty Junkie in your life. It could be your sister, your wife, your mom (oooh, note to self...remember for Mother's Day), even your tween or teenage daughter!
These are fun and easy to assemble, and can be as luxe or affordable as your budget allows.
The GLAMBOgirls began with a froufrou marabou trimmed basket, available at Pier1 Imports, or Michaels, in purple, green, blue or pink. We paid under 5 bucks. Then we filled it with artificial grass, and the fun really began.
Our basket is overflowing with beauty items priced from $1 up!
We love the idea of including an egg-shaped soap. Ours is from Origins, but you can find them at your local Bath & Bodyworks. We also threw in some false eyelashes from ELF (1 buck!), a matchbook full of nail files (1 buck!), Rosebud Salve, Loreal Volumnuous Million Lashes Mascara, Smashbox Fusion Softlights eyeshadow, and Photo Finish Foundation Primer. We also added OPI Avojuice sample sized lotions, Makeup Forever Aqua Cream eyeshadow, Pureology sample sized shampoo and conditioner, Clinique City Block Sunscreen, Buxom and Bare Minerals lipglosses, Covergirl Shadow Blast, Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray and Oil Treatment, OPI Teenage Dream and Black Shatter nail polish by Katy Perry, and of course, we had to include a Chocolate Bunny! We clipped on an adorable Flower Hairclip (1 buck at Michaels), and voila!
So bottom line, with a little creativity, you can put a beautiful basket together at any price point that might make the Easter Bunny a little jealous!
