How To Repair a Broken Makeup Compact

As far as makeup is concerned, there is rarely nothing worse than dropping your favorite eyeshadow and watching it disintegrate into a powdery mess of color. You know from that moment that your makeup bag will carry a light dusting of Disco Gold and your fingers will be gilded every time to reach for the shadow. Fear not there is a way to fix it. And its actually pretty easy. 

Here's What You Gotta Have

  • Rubbing alcohol
  • The broken makeup and compact case you wanna repair ( duh)
  • A broad handled makeup brush 
  • A piece of paper

Here's What You Gotta Do:

On top of a piece of paper, use the handle of your makeup brush to crush the broken makeup into a fine powder. 

Fold the paper in half and use it to funnel the powder back into the original makeup case.

Put the filled compact back on top of the pace to keep the repair area clean. 

Add enough alcohol to the powder to create a thick paste. 
Exact measurements are not important here but remember 
the more alcohol you use the longer it will take the makeup to dry.

Use the end of the brush to smooth out the paste and let the makeup air dry.
Depending on the humidity in your home, the dry times will very. 
My powder took about 5 hours to dry completely but I live in Arizona.
