I have a problem with throwing away nice packaging and this empty Bobbi Brown Concealer palette had been sitting in my room for months. I randomly one day decided I wanted to find away to reuse it… and then the lip balm palette was born!
This really isn’t ground breaking and VERY easy to do, but I was quite pleased with myself so I thought I’d show you how I did it.
Step 1: Clean out the palette using a cotton wool bud and some water or makeup remover.
Step 2: Take a little spoon a scoop a bit of your favourite lip balm out of it’s pot and place into the empty palette.
Step 3: Use the back of the spoon to smooth down the lip balm and fill out the pan, kinda like when you smooth icing onto a cake!
Step 4: Once you’ve filled the space with the lip balm, tidy up the edges using a cotton wool bud and then place the palette in the fridge (with the lid slightly open) so the lip balm can set a bit.
Step 5: Remove from fridge after about 30 minutes (or whenever you remember) and you’re done! Your two favourite lip balms are ready for your handbag.
You may think, is there really much difference than just taking two lip balms in your bag, but there is to me because I like this packaging better than a big pot… and there’s a mirror!
So there’s my mini DIY lip balm palette.. what do you think? Will you be trying it?
