Fixing Broken Eyeshadows

Ever accidentally break your eyeshadow or blush? Don't throw it out!! It can be fixed :-)
I found a bunch of broken eyeshadows at Marshalls and the cashier sold them to me for $1 each.

1.  Drip Everclear (or the highest % isopropyl alcohol you can find) in the pan & on the broken eyeshadow.

2.  I use makeup wipes but paper towels can work- gently but firmly press down on the eyeshadow and mold it into the pan. Make sure it's compact. If your eyeshadow is flat in the pan and not bubbled like mine here, you can use a money coin on top of the paper towel to press down & get a clean look.

3.  Let the eyeshadow dry completely before trying to use it (I wait a couple days)

It's not pretty in the pan but it works!
And if anyone is curious how well these cheap "Max Studio" eyeshadows work: use a damp brush and they're *amazing*! I love them 🙂 here's a pic, I applied the pink to my eye with no eyeshadow primer. It stays bright and pigmented on my eyes all day. Good purchase!!
