One of my main complaints with mineral makeup has been the application.. I tap a bit of powder into the lid of the sifter jar and then swirl my brush. However, usually the caps are so small there’s no room to swirl, and if there is, your brush gets all boogered up. Ugh! Right?
I was cruising through the home improvement gardening center, when POW! An idea. I picked up a glazed flower pot bottom, in pink, no less for $1.49 (!!!). Now I just tap a bit of powder into my saucer and swirl in wonderful, luxurious room!
A few details- I picked a pot bottom that is teeny. Mine is about 3 inches across so it stows nicely in my makeup case. You can chuck them in your dishwasher to clean and disinfect, and please be sure you get a *glazed* pot bottom. The regular terracotta saucers are porous and are not the easiest to clean & disinfect.
There you have it… a super cheap, super easy Bionic makeup tip. Have you ever found an ordinary item that does double duty in the makeup department? Will you use this tip in your mineral makeup application?
