The thick dough is often used for cake decorating.It’s perfect for making makeup because you can shape it into a variety of designs.The cake decorating section of craft stores has fondue.You will need a package or recipe to make your makeup.
Step 2: Pick out the colors you will use for your makeup.
You can buy pre-dyed or dye fondant to be almost any color, but you need to plan out what colors you will need.If you want to make a lipstick for your cake, you might need some red or pink fondant.You might want green, purple, or blue fondant if you want to make an eyeshadow palette.Take the makeup items you want to make and the colors you think you will need.Black fondant is essential for making makeup.Food safe dye is needed to dye fondant.You can find cake decorating dye colors in craft stores.
Step 3: You can add dye to the pieces with a toothpick.

Step 4: It’s a good idea to mix by kneading the fondant.
When you add some dye to the fondant, mix it with your hands.The dough should distribute the color evenly.The color should look uniform when you keep kneading.If the color isn’t as dark as you want it to be, then add more dye and knead again.If the color is too dark, add some white fondant and knead the dyed piece with the white piece to lighten it.
Step 5: The fondant should be rolled into a cylinder.
Roll a piece of black or white fondant into a cylinder.The cylinder should be a little smaller in diameter than a lipstick tube, and it should last about half as long.The lipstick tube can be used to help you with the size.To create flat edges on the ends of the cylinder, cut off the bottom and top of it.
Step 6: The base of the cylinder should be covered.
Cut out a piece of black or white fondant and then roll it out.Wrap the piece around the cylinder.Cut it off if there is any excess.The cylinder should be completely covered by the rectangular piece.
Step 7: Make a piece of lipstick.
There is a piece of colored fondant for the lipstick.Roll the piece of fondant into a sausage.The cylinder should be the same size as the first one.It will be easier to stick onto the other piece if the bottom is cut off.The top should be cut off at an angle.Cut off the top of your lipstick at an angle because it’s usually at the bottom.
Step 8: Attach the lipstick to the tube
After your lipstick piece is complete, add a drop or two of water to the base and press it onto the inner cylinder of the lipstick tube.Allow the lipstick to dry after setting it on a sturdy surface.
Step 9: Roll the fondant into the tube.

Step 10: A beige cone should be used for the wood part of the tip.
The cylinder you just created is about the same diameter as the beige cone you made next.Cut off the tip of the cone and the bottom of it so that it has a flat edge.Attach the cone to the cylinder with water.
Step 11: The pencil tip can be shaped.
You should get a small piece of the same color fondant as you use for the cylinder.The piece should be shaped into a cone.The tip of your eyeliner will be the cone, so make sure it is nice and straight.Attach the tip to the top of the beige cone with a drop of water and set the pencil aside to dry.

Step 13: Take a piece of black fondant and shape it into a cone.
You will need to make a piece of fondant for the nail polish bottle.If you want to shape it into a cone, use a piece of black fondant.The cone piece needs to be scaled to fit the ball piece.The size of the cone piece should be checked against your bottle.
Step 14: Attach the ball to the cone by cutting off the bottom.
