This is one of the best tricks so far I have learned about make up
I have broken many, many blushes and eyeshadows in my time as a Makeup Artist and this one I smashed off the ground when I was in school and I was pretty upset but my teacher showed me a trick to save it and I will now share it with you!!! :)
How many times does your eyeshadow looks like this....
Have no fear when you break powder makeup (blushes, eyeshadows, pressed powders etc..) follow these steps to save your money and save your make-up
Step 1 - Get a little measuring cup (like the ones that come on cough medicine bottles) and carefully put all the shadow in there and clean the actual make-up holder as well
Step 2 - With the end of a brush or pen smash all the chunks into a powder then get 99% alcohol and put a small amount in the cup and mix, don't put too much in just add enough so that it is creamy
Step 3 - Then carefully place the creamy shadow back into the container it came from and let it dry the alchohol will evaporated and leave you with the shadow you thought you lost.
So wipe your tears and put that wallet away! :)
