DIY: Fix broken powders or eye shadows!

4 years ago

I thought I would share this lovely and very useful do it yourself these pictures aren`t mine or the idea I got it from beauty department but it might come in handy for you gurus here on luuux! I have tried this and it works, one of my urban decay shadows broke in my purse but I fixed it up with this tutorial! This also comes in handy because sephora, mac or any high end eye shadow you might have slurged on and this happened. So heres how to bring it back from the dead:

"POWER TOOLS: 70% alcohol {it works 1000 times better for this than your typical rubbing alcohol from the drug store and can be purchased at your local art supply}, plastic wrap, spatula, dropper, synthetic eyeliner brush {I used this favorite go-to liner brush for its round edges and stiff short bristles}, Q-tip {optional if youre a perfectionist you know who you are!}

WRAP IT UP: Completely cover the compact with the plastic wrap and make sure it adheres tightly to contain everything.
MASH IT UP: With your spatula, crush up the entire pan of shadow, not just the broken pieces. You essentially are turning the pressed powder back into loose powder.
ADD ALCOHOL: Remove the wrap and add at least 10 droppers full of alcohol. You can add a few droppers full at a time to see how much you need. I used a dozen.
SMOOTH IT OVER: Now youll feel the powder has become sponge-like and very pliable, giving you the perfect opportunity to even it out smoothly with your spatula.
PERFECT THE EDGES: Use your eyeliner brush to smooth it out even further. Give it a few hours to completely dry and its like it never happened! To make it extra pretty, clean up the perimeter with a Q-tip."
