Stop after you’ve counted to 10 and whatever you land on, you have to recreate – within reason, obvs, don’t do anything dangerous or unkind! So, if it’s a make-up look, grab your brushes! Maybe it’ll be a cute make or bake, or even a stylish bedroom that you can take inspo from? The best bit is you can keep playing until you land on something you love!
