- Step 1: Scoop it up Scoop the broken pieces of your shattered eye shadow, powder blush, or pressed powder into a plastic baggie.
- TIP: Mix your broken blush in an empty jar with a little petroleum jelly for a quick lip gloss or creamy eye shadow.
- Step 2: Crush to a fine powder Use a butter knife to crush the pieces into a fine powder. Cut off a corner of the baggie to pour it back into the container.
- Step 3: Add rubbing alcohol Using an eyedropper, add rubbing alcohol a drop at a time until moist.
- Step 4: Stir Stir with a toothpick until the powder becomes a paste.
- Step 5: Smooth and set Shape with the butter knife and let dry for a few hours. The alcohol will evaporate, leaving you with makeup that looks like new.
- FACT: The average adult uses seven skin care products a day.
