How To Fix Broken Powder Makeup

Doesn’t it feel great to flaunt a perfect complexion using one of your exclusive Maybelline or Chanel compact powder makeup? These can camouflage every crease, every wrinkle and every blemish on your face in seconds, making you look like a gorgeous Diva in no time. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if I say that it would break your heart if one of these compact powders breaks into little pieces right before your eyes! But wait a minute! You’re not done yet. Think twice before trashing those little pieces of compact powder. You can restore its former glory using this awesome trick. All you need is some rubbing alcohol, a zippered plastic pouch, a steel spoon and you’re done.

Transfer the broken pieces into a clean zippered plastic pouch. Next, clean the compact powder container neatly. Press the back of a rounded steel spoon over the zippered pouch and crush the broken compact pieces inside to a fine powder. After this, transfer the powder back into its original container. Add rubbing alcohol, a little at a time till it is absorbed by the powder. Flatten this out using the back of a steel spoon and leave it overnight. The alcohol evaporates. Next morning press a tissue paper over the surface to absorb any excessive rubbing alcohol that may still be present in it. That is all you need to do to get your broken powder makeup back to its original form. So before buying an expensive, new replacement for your broken powder makeup, do use this trick.
