This Redditor Proves Wine Decanting Works For Beauty Products, Too

Makeup is fun for decorating your face, so why not also display it in your home? That's what Redditor tryshapepper decided to do with the help of a lovely blue glass antique bowl.
They suspect the container used to be a powder puff holder or candy dish. Either way, it now makes a great receptacle for storing loose powder. Since it's bigger than the containers powder usually comes in, you can dip a brush or beauty blender in it and wipe it on the side without worrying about spilling. The OP used it to store E.L.F. powder — likely its High Definition Undereye Setting Powder, as Allure reports.

Tryshapper admits the appearance is a little suspicious. "Now it looks like Scarface lives here," they joked. One commenter added, "Say hello to my little blender." But if you can get past that, it's a neat decoration for a dresser or counter. And it looks like it'd make brushing on your base feel totally luxurious.
As other commenters pointed out, you can decant just about any makeup into a pretty bowl, cup, or bottle to make your bedroom or bathroom look classier. "I am really obsessed with decanting anything and everything into fancy/unique containers," Redwoodstalktome chimed in. "My mom has a massive collection of pink iridescent glass, and now I'm thinking I need to 'borrow' the candy dish from the set and give my airspun powder a new home."
Totallyaverageperson came up with an equally clever idea: They emptied mouthwash into what looks like an old olive oil bottle.
Some makeup products already come in gorgeous packaging. But a lot of the best ones look pretty unappealing from the outside. Decanting makeup sounds like an incredibly fun way to beautify the places where we store it — and, in the case of loose powder, make applying it much easier.
