Beauty Hack To Prevent Breaking Of Powder Makeup In Bag:
So, here is a simple trick, which will help to pack your powder makeup products safely while traveling.
Pick your compact or loose powder, blush or bronzer and check the size. Take a clean tissue paper and roughly place it over the inner rim of the compact case and cut out the tissue paper. The tissue paper should sit inside the rim of the case, otherwise there might be difficulty in closing the product case.
Now, take a few cotton balls and flatten them up with your fingers. Then, layer it over the tissue paper as shown in the image. Start by laying one cotton ball flat at a time till the layers build up into a fluffy layer. Use a clean cotton swab or a soft plastic spatula. Presss the cotton balls gently to create an even and fluffy layer. Don’t forget to press the cotton swab along the corners of the product case to ensure that it will not come in way while closing the case. It is important to use clean cotton balls and tissue paper for this DIY as we don’t want to pass any bacterial accumulation to the makeup.
Now, close the compact case and check whether it closes perfectly. As the texture of the cotton balls are very thin and soft, it will definitely not create any difficulty in closing the product case. The cotton balls can be used even during travelling for removing makeup, correct eyeshadow fallouts etc.
Pack all your powder makeup products as shown here and shift it to your vanity pouch. It is best to use thicker material makeup pouches and vanity cases, which will protect your makeup products. You can also additionally pack your powder makeup products with a bubble wrap outside the case. It will also offer an additional layer of protection.
