How to Fix a Broken Powder/Eyeshadow or Blush

By  | 



Broken powder makeup (powder, eyeshadow, or blush)

Rubbing alcohol (the higher the concentration, the better- I used 70)

Plastic wrap (optional, but keeps your fingers cleaner!)


Gather all of the broken pieces of makeup into its original container, and crush the whole thing up with a pencil.

Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the compact, and let it soak in.

Use your finger, the back of a spoon, or anything, really, to rub and smooth down the makeup

Either Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the makeup, and then rubbing the plastic wrap to smooth out the makeup. Or, you can take coin of proper diameter and wrap it into dry clean fabric Press it on eyeshadow during about 30 sec.

If the mixture is still too dry, then add a little more alcohol, and rub again.

Wait overnight. The alcohol has to dry out, and once it does your makeup will be totally back to normal, and the alcohol smell will be gone
