Are you a disorganized mess? Are you always storing your eye-shadows where they can easily fall off from and break? Do you still act heart-broken after they fall and break into a million pieces? Yes, I am talking about myself, but if this applies to you as well…ALL IZZ WELL! lol. I’ll show you how to fix broken eyeshadows.
What you need:
A zip-lock bag, a fork, a dropper (not pictured), a clean tissue (not pictured), a coin (not pictured) and revving alcohol – 90% or more. The higher the concentration of alcohol, the faster the eye-shadow will dry.
You will also need a broken eyeshadow, lol.
For the rest of the tutorial, keep reading.
Step 1: Place the eyeshadow in a zip-lock bag.
Step 2: Using the end of a butter knife or fork, crush the eyeshadow into tiny pieces.
Step 3: Take the eyeshadow out of the bag. This is what it should look like. Shiteous, for the lack of better word!
Step 4: Using a dropper, place 6-8 drops of alcohol in the pan.
For a MAC eyeshadow, use 4-5 drops.
Step 5 – Take a tissue, put a quarter in it. Wet it with the alcohol.
Step 6 – Press it into the eyeshadow. Do it for like 1 minute.
Step 7 – Wait for 30 minutes to an hour and your eyeshadow will be ready.
I also broke my MAC Swish eyeshadow and now its fixed The texture of swish is better because the coin is a better presser for rounder shapes. My Urban Decay Graffiti eyeshadow does not look as good as my MAC swish, but I am happy to have them both in one piece.
Another thing, I did not know how to fix a broken eyeshadow on my own. I would love to say that I am so smart and all-knowing, but I am not. I got to know how to do this through Kandee Johnson’s youtube tutorial. I think in blogging and beauty community, its so important that you give credit where its due. One of my good blogger friends has been a victim of plagiarism where her posts shamelessly get lifted off on another blog. I hope my other blogger friends are with me on this, cheating is never cool!
