How To Fix A Broken Powder

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.

INSTRUMENTS REQUIRED:

* Rubbing Alcohol (or spirit, as it’s popularly known).

* Spatula (I got mine from my sister’s hair relaxer kit).

* Tissue paper.

Step 1:

Lay pads of tissue paper on your work-space in order to avoid a mess.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

Mould the wet powder with a spatula, or your finger. Ensure that the surface is flat.

Step 5:

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.
