You want to going on that hike you've never attempted before, have a non-alcoholic all-nighter party, have a tv-show binge marathon, etc. But have you thought about things you could do to kick up the fun you have with makeup? Does anybody else get bored with the EXACT same makeup routine every, single morning? It's summer-time! Live it up a little! Now is the time to try something you've never done before! Be brave! Take chances! Make mistakes, and get messy!! (Do you like my Ms. Frizzle reference?)
