Saving Space on Cosmetics: A Foundation for Success

This space saving make-up tip comes from my friend Lisa in Florida. Thicker bottles of liquid foundation take up an awkward amount of space in your hanging toiletry bag, and include the risk of breaking. Nobody wants to deal with that mess at any time, let alone on the road. And now with the airline travel restrictions on liquids, it’s even more of an issue.

Her answer? A powder type make-up compact that can be used as a dry powder or a moist foundation. The one she uses is made by Lancome. Thin and non-liquid, this type of product has been the answer for her. As my bottle of liquid foundation is currently causing a bit of a packing challenge, I think I’ll be shopping for one of these compact options in the very near future.


  1. I’m glad you decided to try the powder. You have been doing amazing things with this site! It’s cool!
