We've all been there: You're doing your makeup just like any other morning and reach for your favorite eyeshadow (or worse, contour!). Just when you think you've got it, your fingers fail you. Your precious baby has slipped from your grasp, plummeting towards the hard tile floor. The container is fine, but the powder? Destroyed.
Before you throw that thing out (or try to make due with a broken compact), check out this amazing makeup hack that will quite literally change your life. You'll get to save your favorite powders, and save a few bucks since you don't have to replace them.
And in case you're wondering, you can totally use this to extend the life of your face powder. You know when you get to the end of your powder compact and all you've got are those broken pieces from the edges? Grab a small container from the dollar store, crush up those crumbs, and use this trick!
All you need is:
• Rubbing alcohol, AKA isopropyl alcohol (don't use water!)
• Your broken powder
• A pencil
• A small coin
• A clean cloth or paper towel
Ready? Let's go!
1. First, you have to go to town on your powder.
2. Add rubbing alcohol.
3. Wrap a coin in a cloth.
4. Now use that coin to whip your makeup into shape!
5. All that's left to do is wait!
