Protect your compacts with cotton pads
You’ve spent a good half hour in Macy’s choosing the perfect eye shadow to go with your holiday outfits, but when you get to the hotel you open your makeup bag to find it has smashed all over the case. Having to be well-presented at all times means that flight attendants have a great hack to stop this disaster.
Open your compacts, and place a thin cotton pad inside them, using several for larger palettes. This will keep the powder from being bashed around and crumbled, and the compact mirror from breaking. A cheap and easy hack to save you tears on vacation.
