DIY makeup for Girls Night Out

Looking for something new to do for Girl’s Night Out? How about making your own makeup? It may seem like an arduous task, buying all the ingredients and searching Pinterest for recipes. But if you live in the Maryland/DC area, you  are in luck! I recently attended a “make and take event” put on by the founders of Dear Baby Products,  a local company that makes handmade pregnancy and baby safe bath and beauty products.


Kate Ansari from Dear Baby brought everything we needed to make a foundation and a lip balm, including  ingredients, utensils and containers.  All we had to do was measure, mix and have fun experimenting with the pigment powders. Kate was there for guidance and to help us out with color matching. All the ladies left with customized products made from safe, natural ingredients like avocado oil, shea butter and aloe vera.

Kate and Dear Baby Products offer make and take events for baby showers, girls night out, team-building events and more. The optimum size for an event is between 10 to 20 people. This keeps the cost agreeable (around $20 per person) and gives everyone enough time and attention to make their products. To schedule your own make and take, go to

The finished products.

You can also buy products from the Dear Baby Product line on the web or at Maryland area Whole Foods stores.
