How to Repair your Ruined, Shattered Eyeshadow!

Today I’m going to share something with you, something precious and close to my heart.  It will help you preserve your sanity and hard earned dollars.  It might be a little bit of fun for your Monday too, but I don’t want to assume things on your behalf.

Do you ever break your eyeshadow?  Like, drop it on the ground and shatter it?  It’s heartbreaking, especially when you’ve forked over serious cash for the good stuff.  I’ve thrown away hundreds of dollars in makeup because I’ve shattered it doing heaven knows what.
I’m here to teach you how to repair it.

Here’s what you need:
  • shattered eyeshadow
  • coin {I used an American quarter}
  • rubbing alcohol
  • tissue
  • butter knife
  • medicine squirter
  • {not pictured} plastic bag or plastic wrap

Step 1:
Place the shattered makeup carefully into the plastic bag holding the plastic carefully over the top.

Step 2:
Hold the plastic tightly across the top of the eyeshadow and with the back of the butter knife smash all the remaining bits of eyeshadow into a fine powder.

Step 3:
When the eyeshadow looks like this, you’re ready to go.  Pull the eyeshadow out of the plastic bag, we’re on to step 4!

Step 4:
Using the medicine squirter put a couple squirts of rubbing alcohol into the broken eyeshadow.  Make sure the eyeshadow is completely saturated with the rubbing alcohol.

Step 5:
Now put the tissue on top of the eyeshadow and put the coin on top of that.  Press down with all the force in the world.  You’re re-compacting the eyeshadow, so don’t be shy.

Step 6:
Enjoy your new eyeshadow!
