Have you ever had your heart broken? Then you know what it feels like when you drop your favourite compact and watch it shatter into a million pieces.
While that may be a little dramatic, don’t fret. You can DIY your broken makeup compact into 3 simple steps.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Rubbing alcohol
- A spoon, spatula or I used the end of a makeup brush.
Add a small amount of rubbing alcohol and mix it into a fine paste. (You can mix the product in a separate container. After my first attempt, I would suggest mixing it in the original pan.
Spead it evenly in the pan. The finish will not be as nice as when you first bought it but it’s better than nothing.
Let it sit so that the rubbing alcohol can evaporate and the product can set. Voila good as new (almost!).
The same goes for other powdered products, I used this method to bring my favourite highlighter back to life. Unfortunately, your product will never be exactly the same but when you spend an arm and a leg on a highlighter you’re not going to just throw it out!
