What You Need
A cup for mixing
Either an old, empty makeup container or the container that the product was originally in (I used an old Merle Norman container)
What to Do
1. Dump all of the broken makeup into the cup for mixing and pour in some rubbing alcohol. The amount of alcohol you need will vary according to how much broken powder you have.
2. Mix the rubbing alcohol and the powder together until the mixture is a little thicker than the consistency of toothpaste and there are no chunks of powder left.
3. Once the mixture is of the right consistency, pour it into the makeup container that you have chosen. Smooth the alcohol-powder mixture out so it evenly fills the container.
4. Allow the mixture to sit for a couple hours. By then, the powder should have dried and look good as new!(Note: the powder will be solid, though it may not always be as smooth as it originally was; this all depends on how well you smooth the makeup over before you allow it to dry)
|Not perfectly smooth, but the eyeshadow works good as new!|
I'd love to hear feedback if any of you all try this. Let me know how it works for you!
