To be able to use up solid face powder when just a little is left in the compact and it's too expensive to throw out, do the following outdoors or where you won't mind a little powder blowing about when you open the blender.
I just use a teaspoon to break the powder into a small container, then use the back of the spoon to crush it into powder. I can put the lid on the container to carry it in my make-up bag. I routinely add part of compact of oil absorbing powder to my face powder and a green base powder to tone down my rosecea.
I do this with blush too. You can mix colors to make custom blends. Add face powder if the blush was too dark for you, or a darker blush or bronzer if it was too light. It's a great way to use up all those blushes that weren't the right shade to start with.
