How many of you have ever dropped your favorite eye shadow on the floor, watching it break into a million little pieces?
I know I have, one too many times.
I wish that I would have known this little trick a long time ago. I could’ve saved many compacts (and money)! Now, you can actually fix the broken powder by using rubbing alcohol. This trick will work on any sort of powder-based makeup. Let’s begin!
- Add a few drops of the alcohol to the broken powder compact or eye shadow case.
- Once you add the alcohol, it will turn into a soupy consistency. I recommend taking a toothpick and stirring it around, breaking up the small pieces.
- At this point, it will now turn into a paste like substance, which you can smooth out with your finger or with a top of a spoon to shape it back into the compact.
- Wait a few hours for the shadow to harden or leave it out overnight (the method I prefer for best results).
*** The alcohol will completely evaporate so you don’t need to worry about it staying in the powder.
You just saved yourself some money by not having to buy new products!!
