DIY- Vintage Compact Fill

You'll need: vintage compact with metal basin, jewelry cleaner, knife/ spatula, alcohol, paper towels, heat gun, your favorite cream product (lip/ cheek color or cream concealer).

A great place to find compacts is at vintage or antique store- or an estate sale. Soon I'll have them up for grabs on my website! Stay tuned for the store opening!
