Broken Makeup? Fix It With This Clever Hack

Don't throw that bronzer out!

Posted on

What you need:

Broken makeup

Clean knife

Rubbing alcohol

Paper towel or tissue

Instructions:

1. Collect all of the broken makeup pieces in the bottom of the compact.

2. Break up the makeup as fine as you can using a very clean knife.

3. Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol and mix until it forms a paste; add a few more drops if needed.

4. Spread and smooth makeup back into the compact. Tap on a flat surface to remove any air bubbles. Let dry about 1 hour, or until almost dry but still a little damp.

5. Cover the makeup surface with a clean paper towel or tissue. Use the cap of the rubbing alcohol bottle to pack and smooth the makeup even further. Let dry completely.

Tip: If the makeup container is too small to mix in, empty the broken makeup into a clean cup or bowl, mix and return to the container to dry.
