Makeup Hack

Northwest Pearls: Makeup Hack

For the last few weeks I've been saving my almost empty container of bareMinerals Matte Foundation. I had a plan to try to somehow open the container to get the last of the foundation that I can't shake through the opening but hadn't gotten around to it yet.

I found this tutorial on how to get the last of the makeup out of the container. I tried it and it worked! I've now got my container open and about a week's worth of foundation to use that otherwise I would have thrown away.

Before I did the tutorial, I unscrewed the lid, shook all the makeup I could have reached back into the bottom, and then twisted shut the plastic lid that separates the foundation from the accessible foundation. Afterwards I screwed the main lid back on and turned the whole container upside down.

Then I took a penny and wedged the penny under the ridge at the bottom. I turned the container and wedged the penny under different areas and after about two turns of wedging, I popped it off!
