Have you seen the fake eye tattoos that are all the rage right now?  They’re fun, but they don’t go on very easily and seem like they would be kind of a pain.  If you like the look but don’t want to spend the money on the temporary tats, here’s a stroke of brilliance.  Christine from Design by re:Birth credits her 14-year-old daughter for coming up with this idea.  Using items already in her makeup kit (eye primer and eye shadow) and some plastic mesh from a produce crate, she came up with her own version that’s both cheaper and easier!  [how to make a faux eye tattoo]

Project estimate:

  • Plastic mesh, free
  • Eye primer, on hand
  • Eye shadow, on hand

Total:  Free
