We’ve all been there: you’re rushing out the door, and quickly grab your favorite makeup palette, but it accidentally falls to the ground. If only you had a magic wand that could easily fix it. Don’t worry, there is still hope.
If you’ve ever wondered how to fix broken makeup —you’ve come to the right place. Recently, I found myself in the same situation with a favorite compact makeup palette. Distractions happen. Luckily, there is a way to save broken makeup. And here is the best part: it is super easy. So, before you consider tossing out your favorite powdered product. Save some money and give this easy DIY a try.
How To Fix Broken Makeup
For this broken makeup fix, all you’ll need is isopropyl alcohol and a spray bottle. I chose to use isopropyl alcohol because it works best with powdered products and fully evaporates after several hours.
First things first, gather all the broken pieces of powder back into the palette. Next, use the rubbing alcohol spray to rebind the product, it will take a couple of sprays to perfect a smooth, creamy consistency. Gently blend using your fingers to smooth and press the powder together. Make sure to flatten the powder as much as possible. Once the powder is smooth, let it dry. This should take around 12 to 15 hours for the rubbing alcohol to completely evaporate. All in all, I find this to be the easiest way to fix broken makeup — it’s not perfectly new again, but it does work until you’re ready to invest in a new product.
