Alcohol! I’m sure most of you already knew that, but this is actually my first time doing it. My little nephew and niece got their hands on my makeup, dropped it on the floor, and then said, “Oops. Sorry!” Luckily, I’ve heard about this trick but sadly, I have to use it. Let’s fix this, shall we?
Depending on how much powder is left, add alcohol little by little, until the powder bits look soaked. With your clean fingers, break up the powder into what initially looks like liquid makeup and smooth it out as much as you can. Let it dry overnight and the powder is as good as new!
How easy was that? It’s all about being patient. I have used both powders and found that the alcohol did not change their consistency once it dried completely. I’m more of a fan of how the face powder turned out than the eye shadow. I’m thinking because I didn’t break up the entire eye shadow pan, it appeared darker in some spots, but hey, as long as it works!
Have you tried this trick on your broken powders? How did it go?
