So as you were getting ready for work this morning, you rebellious elbow decided to knock over your blush compact and now the powdery make up inside is broken deeming it worthless.  Until now.

I was searching but I didn’t have to go far for this tutorial.  (It was on the front page as a featured article.) 

So here’s what you need:

  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Eyedropper
  • Your Broken Makeup


  1. Fill the eyedropper with the rubbing alcohol.
  2. Slowly, one drop at a time, add the alcohol to your broken makeup until it is a pastey consistency.
  3. Using your finger, smooth out the makeup so it is fairly flat again.
  4. Allow the make up to sit untouched until completely dry.
  5. There you have it!  It may not look pretty, but you can use it again without making a total mess!
