How to Keep your Makeup Compact Clean

How to Keep your Makeup Compact Clean

Hi Everyone, :))

Using a compact has been a constant struggle for me.. okay not the using part but the carrying part. The applicator that comes with a compact gets dirty after a few uses. I don’t want to keep reusing it. Plus it is not hygienic. Carrying a tiny brush along with is not always feasible. How many new powder puffs am I supposed to buy. I don’t have enough time to keep washing them. Phew!! 😛

Compact Clean

So here’s is something I figured out. And it works! 😀

Use a cotton pad as a carry on powder puff. I mean while you are at home you may use powder brush or whatever .But when you are carrying your compact for touchups, just slip your good old cotton round. It works. You can discard it at the end of the day. :)) I have to confess that a cotton round would not give you the same feel as the brush or your regular powder puff but it is not bad for touch ups! You can blend away the excess using the other side of the cotton pad.


This would not only keep your compact clean but your skin would also thank you for this. :))

Hope this helps.
