There are some play makeup products on the market these days, and we've profiled which ones are safe for kids. But what if you want to indulge your child without actually letting her put on makeup? Emily of Not So Idle Hands came up with an innovative solution: faux makeup kits from nail polish.

Emily made eyeshadow, blush, foundation, and even faux nail polish with cheap polish colors and leftover makeup containers. What she ended up with were realistic looking compacts that her daughter can play with without applying any real makeup to her face.

See how Emily did it at Not So Idle Hands.
