Today I’m going to share something with you, something you probably havn’t thought of already. It will help you preserve your sanity and hard earned dollars.  Have you ever shattered a brand new eyeshadow? Well i have and I know how extremely sucky it is.  I’m here to help with a makeup tip from the pros.
follow these simple steps

Here’s what you need:

  • shattered eyeshadow
  • coin (I used an American quarter)
  • rubbing alcohol
  • tissue
  • butter knife
  • medicine squirter
  •  plastic bag or plastic wrap
  • repair shadow

STEP 1: GET EVERYTHING TOGETHER

Place the shattered makeup carefully into the plastic bag holding the plastic carefully over the top.

STEP 2: TEAR IT ALL DOWN BACK TO THE BASICS

Hold the plastic tightly across the top of the eyeshadow and with the back of the butter knife smash all the remaining bits of eyeshadow into a fine powder.

TEP 3: RECONSTITUTE WITH RUBBING ALCOHOL

When the eyeshadow looks like this, you’re ready to go.  Pull the eyeshadow out of the plastic bag, we’re on to step 4!

STEP 4: PRESS YOUR SHATTERED EYESHADOW BACK INTO SHAPE

Using the medicine squirter put a couple squirts of rubbing alcohol into the broken eyeshadow.  Make sure the eyeshadow is completely saturated with the rubbing alcohol.

STEP 5: SAVE MUCHO DINEROS

Now put the tissue on top of the eyeshadow and put the coin on top of that.  Press down with all the force in the world.  You’re re-compacting the eyeshadow, so don’t be shy.

Enjoy your new eyeshadow!
