Stick-On Makeup Products We Love
Deep down, aren’t we all just bigger, breastier versions of our little-girl selves? And what’s the ultimate younger-self indulgence? Stickers! So what better way to marry a little-girl obsession with a grow-up-girl pastime than stick-on makeup? Stick-on makeup allows us to have fanciful designs on our nails, lashes, or lips, even if we still haven’t quite mastered keeping lipstick within the lines. These stickers and appliqués make makeup so easy, it’s like child’s play. I might even wear them with a tutu to work tomorrow, because Mom’s not around to stop me anymore.
