A Compact Mirror: With You Everywhere You Go!

Updated on March 20, 2011

A Compact Mirror Is The Universal Accessory For Women

Almost every woman carries a compact mirror in their purse or car. A compact mirror is great for checking your makeup or teeth, but most compacts are a single color and usually a boring color at that. One thing you can do to personalize your compact mirror is to customize it!

Customize Your Compact Mirror!

One idea is to glue on some sparkle. Add sequins or tiny rhinestones to add some style and shine to your compact mirror. Use a small dot of glue and a pair of tweezers to place the sequins or stones. You can create a funky design with swirls or wavy patterns, or alternate colors for some pizazz. Whatever your design, plan it out before hand then simply glue to the pattern.

You can paint your compact mirror to match your clothing style. Choose a metallic paint or a faux finish for a chic look. Crackle or bronze paint can give a compact an antique look. Put down some newspaper and start painting. Let the paint dry completely before using your mirror.

Add texture and charm by applying foam letters or shapes. You can spell your name or attach cute butterflies, animals or hearts. For a fun touch hot glue some colorful flowers on your compact mirror. Any of these options are playful and perfect for young girls.

Gluing colorful beads to your compact mirror give it a fun, colorful look. Beads can be threaded on string in any color combination you prefer and glued down in twisted or straight lines. Be sure to allow the glue to dry fully before using the mirror.

Another option is to glue on pictures you've cut from magazines or catalogues. Decoupage will secure the pictures to your compact mirror, and it dries clear for a matte or gloss finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully for proper results.

      I'm such a minimalist, sometimes I leave the house without wearing pants! :)

      Cute hub! Good for Pat, who carries everything but the kitchen sink. Not for Tricia, who is minimalist regarding handbags.
