Hello guys. Happy new month to you. The year is surprisingly running fast, which I like, lol. I really hope you guys are doing okay.
Today’s post has been a real lifesaver ever since I discovered this fix-it tip from other blogs. I’m certain it would be of help to everyone that follows this blog (and every other person you refer here). I mean, I’ve had to deal with messy makeup bags because of some broken compact powders, eyeshadows, bronzers and the likes, which I eventually had to throw out, and we can all agree that it isn’t a good experience at all. With the way the economy is, this isn’t even the best time to spend extra money replacing broken makeup items; I’ll just cry on my way to the store.
* Rubbing Alcohol (or spirit, as it’s popularly known).
* Spatula (I got mine from my sister’s hair relaxer kit).
* Tissue paper.
Lay pads of tissue paper on your work-space in order to avoid a mess.
If the powder is not fully broken (i.e. one-part broken, one-part intact), it’s best to grind everything into powder in order to make fixing it easier.
Pour a bit of the rubbing alcohol into the broken powder until it is fully absorbed . Please note that it is not advisable to spray it in because it would most likely scatter the powder all over, especially if the powder palette is not hollow.
Mould the wet powder with a spatula, or your finger. Ensure that the surface is flat.
Leave it to dry.
Your powder is as good as new!
I hope you find this tip helpful. Try it out and let me know how it works out for you.
