Hi, there, Polished People! I hope you’re doing well. Today, I’m adding another post to my #StayHome series and I’ll be sharing some fun things for all the makeup enthusiasts out there. With the odd situation in the world right now, sometimes it can be a struggle to even put on a swipe of mascara in the morning, but I know all the beauty nerds are in want of some fun things to do. So, I’ve come up with some activities to do if you’re bored or out of ideas. I hope you find something to enjoy in this list. Let’s see…


#1 Organize your makeup

No matter the size of your collection, it’s always good to sort out what you have. I recently did this and put everything where it belongs. Everything is so clean now!

#2 Practice/try out makeup looks

Always run out of time to try something new? Just can never get that look right? Take some time to practice new looks and try out new styles. Chances are, you’re probably staying home quite a bit, so it’ll give you a chance to see how different makeup will feel/look. I haven’t done any makeup looks in a while, but I want to practice some eyeshadow looks soon.

#3 Create an eyeshadow look based on a character/book/movie

This is always so much fun. Ever see those extravagant eyeshadow looks on Instagram or YouTube? Choose a favorite character, book, movie, or whatever and create an eyeshadow design for them! This gives you a chance to be really creative and can keep you busy if you’re bored.

#4 Perfect that winged eyeliner

The constant struggle! Grab your favorite liquid liner and get to work.

#5 Clean your makeup brushes

If you always seem to run out of time for cleaning your makeup brushes, now is a great time to give them a good cleanse. This is something I admittedly haven’t done in quite a while. I actually got this new makeup brush cleaner on Amazon recently and I’ll be doing a tutorial/review for it very soon; stay tuned on my YouTube and TikTok to see how it works!


I hope you find something in this list to keep you entertained. Do you have any more ideas? Share in the comments! I’ll be continuing this series with editions for business owners, bloggers, and more. Right now though, you can see the other one in the series so far, where I suggest some fun things for nail nerds. Stay safe and healthy, everyone. Be well!

Have a polished rest of your day,
