How to: Bring your shattered eyeshadow back to life!

So a friend of mine shared this little tip with me recently and I had to pass it along! This technique can be used for pressed powders and blushes too!

In the past, my eyeshadows, blush’s, and even pressed powders would break and I would end up throwing them away and wasting the $15-40 I spent on them. But not anymore! Ever since my friend sent me this tip I haven’t thrown any of these products away!  So, if you don’t like throwing your money in the trash then take a few minutes and try this technique!

Here is what you will need:

-butter knife

– rubbing alcohol

– tissue

– plastic sandwich bag

– a nickel, dime or quarter depending on size of eyeshadow

The process is actually super easy!

Step 1– Put the eyeshadow in the plastic baggie and use the butterknife to break up the rest of the eyeshadow into a fine powder. (This demonstration was done with a dual eyeshadow, which made it a little more difficult, but not impossible!)

Step 2– Take the eyeshadow out of the bag and pour a little rubbing alcohol over it.

Step 3– Cover the eyeshadow with the tissue, and then use the quarter (or dime- depending on the size of the product) to push down the loose powder until it is back to it’s compact state.

Step 4– Let the eyeshadow dry, and you’re all set!

I love this tip and have already done it to 4 eyeshadows that were just waiting to go in the trash! Who knew saving money could be this fun?
