How To Fix Broken Eyeshadows

cosmetic doctor to the counter...stat!
here's what you need on the eyeshadow operating table....
broken shadows
ziplock or any plastic bag
butter knife or spoon
rubbing alcohol (70% is fine, or if you can get 90% or higher it will just dry faster)
a squeeze bottle to put the alcohol in (this is optional..just makes it easier)
a coin (a quarter is the perfect size)
pieces of a cut up t-shirt or fabric (you can use a tissue but it doesn't work as well)

In the video I used matte eye shadows....this technique works for shimmery, sparkly, or matte....
actually it works best for matte shadows...shimmery ones have larger particles mixed with smaller ones....this makes them more fragile and much more breakable...
this works the same for matte or shimmer...they are all pressed the same way in the factory....just the sparklier ones will always be more fragile...

This is the quickest and simpliest way to fix your eyeshadows, blushes, face powders, anything powdery in a compact!

So here's to your Operation Save A Shadow!!!

This also works very well for powder blusher. I rescued my favorite blush this way after it had fallen from the edge of the sink onto the bathroom floor. The compact didn't pop open and the mirror didn't break, but of course the blush was in chunks in the case. Thanks for posting this
