Traveling with Bare Minerals

I LOVE my Bare Minerals makeup...but I HATE traveling with it. I can't understand why the makers haven't found a way to make the containers less messy! On last week's business trip, I was determined to figure out a way to keep my makeup bag neat and tidy - and I DID!

You can call me a little WT (it wouldn't be the first time), but I got to DC with my makeup in tact by using a little piece of saran wrap! Ya, I totally placed a small piece under the strainer piece and it worked. I'm a genius and should patent my fab technique. Ha, just kidding; I'm just excited this worked for me! To find out helpful tips and techniques that worked for other people this week, visit Works for Me Wednesday!

That is BRILLIANT! I'm totally doing this when I go back to Texas. I hate it when all the powder comes to the top and then I get too much on my brush. Yuck!

Now that's smart thinkin'! Next time I travel I'll have to remember this.

Very good idea! I love mineral makeup but hate how messy it can be - especially when travelling.

This is so genius! I wish I would have read it before my trip this week when I was cursing the Bare Minerals powder explosion every morning.
