If you read my blog you might remember I finished up Benefit Get Even not too long ago. I’ve now recycled the empty case into an eyeshadow palette.

I used some old Aromaleigh samples that were in baggies. I really hate using eyeshadows from baggies, I end up getting them everywhere! Pressing them into this case means I’ll actually bother to use them.

It’s not the neatest it could be but all the things I used would have just ended up in the bin, so at least this way they don’t get wasted!

Have you ever turned an empty make up case into something else?


I’ve moved – find this post here —

If you don’t want to buy nail dotting tools there a plenty of ways to create your own without spending any money.

1. A Pencil (with a rubber on the end) and a Pin.

The pencil acts as a handle, without it the pin would be quite fiddly to hold.

2. A Bobby Pin.

Just bend it open so it’s easier to hold.

3. Toothpicks.

Easy to use, cheap and you can throw them away instead of cleaning them.

4. A Pen or Pencil.

Use the flat end for really big dots and the small end for medium sized dots.

5. A Paintbrush (end or tip)

Do you use any of these instead of an actual nail dotting tool?
