First your boots, now your favorite eyeshadow. But seriously, whats better than salvaging something that you thought was a goner? Especially when that something is a MAC eyeshadow that cost you a pretty penny, and then hurtled towards the floor one day and shattered right before your eyes. Not a good way to start your day. The good news is, Petit Elefant featured a DIY on this, and we have tested and concur that it indeed works! (Go ahead, do a little victory dance. And then go get that broken shadow!)
To get started, you’ll need:
- shattered eyeshadow
- a quarter, or coin of similar size
- rubbing alcohol
- butter knife
- medicine dropper
- plastic bag (or plastic wrap)
Step 2: Using your butter knife, mash the broken shadow into an even powder.
Step 3: Remove your shadow from the bag. (This is what it should look like once mashed.)
Step 4: Drop about 3 drops of rubbing alcohol into the shadow, moistening it.
Step 5: Place your tissue over the top, and press a quarter into the shadow to reform it.
Step 6: Allow your shadow to dry. (Don’t worry!! The rubbing alcohol stench will dissapear when the shadow dries!)
Voila! Your pretty shadow is (almost) good as new!
