Tutorial: What A Difference A Dot Makes

I was working on an order for five dozen mini makeup cookies and decided to keep it simple.
The problem with keeping it simple is there's not a lot of smoke and mirrors to distract you from any flaws.  Like imperfect circles for instance.  My quick fix for wonky circles? Camouflage the crap out of them with a decorative dot border.  Check it out.
This little blusher = wonky city.
To correct shape add evenly spaced dots using a number 1 tip so they create a more perfect circle shape. Let dry. 
Come back with your number 1 tip and fill in blank spaces.  Booya!  Perfect-er circle with a decorative border.
Add a pretty little heart detail and you're in business.
