I’ve never broken a compact powder until two weeks ago. Luckily, it wasn’t a really expensive powder but it’s one of y favorites and I use it almost daily so I definitely did not want to throw it out! So I decided to repair it and took pictures along the way so that I could show you guys how to fix your broken compacts.
What you’ll need:
- A plastic bag
- 70% or less rubbing alcohol
- A towel (to keep the surface you are working on clean).
- A knife (or anything that you can use to smush the powder pieces).
What to do: (Just follow the steps below, comment if you have any questions)
The paper towel will have absorbed all the excess alcohol, leaving you with a fixed compact like the one below! As you can see, it won’t be as pretty as before but it will be usable. One last suggestion that I have is to use alcohol that is less than 70% because mine came out a bit more dry than wanted. Good luck to fixing your compacts!
Remember, if you have any questions make sure to leave me a comment and I’ll be more than happy to try to help!
