24 ideas for your DIY beauty Advent calendar

Translation: Eva Francis

Nothing beats a homemade beauty Advent calendar. But collecting all those little gifts takes time, patience and, let’s face it, money. To help you out, I’ve put together 24 ideas for little beauty treats that won’t break the bank.

As a beauty addict, I know exactly what I’d like to see in an Advent calendar – not those unnecessary and repetitive knick-knacks ready-made calendars from various brands usually contain. I find it really important that the gifts are useful and still include some small, colourful extras and experiments. Mini versions of everyday products that you can throw into your sports or school bag are a great choice. Add some fun with decorative beauty products such as eye shadow, nail polish and so on.

Want to surprise your (god)child, niece or nephew with a homemade Advent calendar this year? Here are 24 ideas that would have made my teenage heart skip a beat.

As a massive Disney fan, I see the world through rose-tinted glasses. I worship series from the 90s and consider mermaids a religion. When I’m not dancing in glitter rain, I’m either hanging out at pyjama parties or sitting at my make-up table. P.S. I love you, bacon, garlic and onions.
