Beauty Basics: How To Fix A Broken Eyeshadow

So a while ago I was filming my makeup collection video...and tragedy struck. As I was pulling out the eye makeup drawer, I dropped it. Makeup went flying everywhere. Everything was fine, all survived, except for 2 eyeshadows. And instead of throwing them out or getting upset, I decided I was going to fix them. It took me a while to get around to it, but I finally did it, and I'm going to show you how!

What You'll Need:
1. A broken eyeshadow or other powder item
2. Rubbing alcohol
3. Crushing utensil 
4. Baby wipe (optional)

How To Do It:
1. Taking your crushing utensil, finish crushing your broken eyeshadow (or compact, blush, etc) and turn it into a loose powder product.

2. Being very careful with your rubbing alcohol, add just enough to turn the loose powder into a paste. Depending on the size of your item, you will need more or less than I used.

3. Using your crushing utensil, mix the powder and the rubbing alcohol together until the consistency is smooth and the top is relatively flat.

4. Let your item dry completely before using. At least 2 hours, but more is recommend for added safety. You don't want to put any residue of rubbing alcohol on your face, especially your eyes!

5. Once your item is dry, use a baby wipe to clean up the edges. This is optional, but I figured I might as well start my newly fixed eyeshadow as fresh as possible!
