Any form of make up in a dream may be an indication that you need to kiss and “make up” with someone. Make up is worn on the face so it may be a message you are sending yourself that you need to face up to something OR that you are masking your feelings. Sometimes it can mean that you wish to appear more attractive to others, not necessarily physically attractive but attractive in your personality. A compact also has a mirror attached so it may mean that it’s time to take a good look at your self and your behavior lately.
