So, you have a favorite eyeshadow, pressed powder, or blush you absolutely cannot live without. Life happens, and sometimes before you even realize it, you find yourself the owner of your favorite product, smashed into 5 million little pieces.
When your powder cosmetics are broken into 5 million pieces, you can always put them in a small container and use as a loose shadow, but you DO have the option of fixing the products so it’s almost as good as new.
It’s easy! I mean it! You’ll thank me!
The only extra product you’ll need is Rubbing Alcohol that you can get from any old drugstore.
Here is a lovely L’Oreal H.I.P. #319 eyeshadow that was sadly broken upon arrival.
Step 1: Dump the shadow into a small bowl. You can use an extra makeup brush to get the original container clean.
Step 2: Use the back of a brush to crush the shadow into a fine powder.
Step 3: I used the cap to my rubbing alcohol as a measurement and poured it into the container with the shadow. Make sure to mix well until you end up with a paste! Start off by slowly adding the alcohol, to make sure you don’t make the mixture too watery. In the case that happens, it’s all good – it will just take a bit longer for the shadow to dry down.
I used a wooden stirrer that I had lying around, but you can use a spoon or anything you want.
