Fixing Broken Shadows

It’s one of those really annoying things that happens: your favorite blush, eyeshadow, or pressed powder product breaks into a bunch of pieces. Sometimes you’ll try to salvage it but more often than not it just gets too messy and into the garbage it goes. Thankfully I came across a Kandee Johnson video where she shows how to “fix” them.¬†http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0IatsKbvGU&feature=plcp. I tried to follow the same method although I used 98% alchohol instead of the 70% she uses. Although she recommends using a higher percent alchohol I think that it dried a little too quickly – making¬†it harder to really “glue” the pieces together. My shadow was also a baked dome shadow so obviously it didn’t get back into that dome shape but at least the pieces aren’t flying all over the place now.
