Smashed makeup like new again

Smashed makeup like new again

Prepare yourselves for the best makeup hack EVER!

You know, that moment when your compressed powder or eyeshadow is falling for the floor, time slows down, you feel the dread, but cannot prevent the impact. All you can do is pick up the container while praying your makeup hasn’t smashed into a million pieces. Well, it most likely has.. Come on, we’ve all been there, and kicked ourselves afterwards for being so careless. Now, to use the makeup turns into an absolute mess, resulting in powder falling on clothing and makeup ridden hands every time you open it.

Well this is the handiest tip ever for restoring your smashed makeup and making you feel whole again. Take your compact container in which the makeup is smashed and use a tool to break the remaining lumps of powder into a fine dust (still within the casing). Now all you have to do is get your hands on some rubbing alcohol (used for medical cleansing etc.) and introduce a few drops into your fine powder makeup. Mix the alcohol and makeup around to create a creamy consistency, then using a spatula or other kitchen utensil, smooth out the surface of the makeup. Allow to set for 30 minutes or so and voila, you’ve got your compact back baby. Yaaaay <3
