DIY: How to Fix Broken Blushes & Eyeshadows

Hello Loves!


My sister has had this broken MAC blush for ages now and I thought it a waste to throw it away so I've kept it for soo long hoping that I'd find a way to repair it! I finally stumbled upon Kandee Johnsons' video, tried it out and it worked! So here is what you will need and how to do it :)

Things you'll need:
1 x (or more) Broken eyeshadows or blush  
1 x Spoon/knife/fork (I used a plastic fork)
1 x Coin
Paper towels
70%(or more) Rubbing Alcohol


Step 1: Really crush up your powder product till the particles are quite fine

Step 2: Drop a few drops of the rubbing alcohol all over the pan


Step 3: Take a few drops of the rubbing alcohol on a new paper towel and wrap the coin inside it


Step 4: Using the coin, press down hard on the eyeshadow/blush until its all pressed down into the pan.  A bit of it may spill out over the sides so you can just press it back into the pan.


Step 5: Leave till completely dry (a few hours/overnight) and enjoy!

Its a super easy and pretty quick process and ensures that you don't throw away your favorite powdered products! You can also use this method to press any loose pigments or powders you may have and the rubbing alcohol acts as a disinfectant!

Hope this is useful and if you try it out let me know how it goes!

Love xx
