Once you have recovered from the shock of breaking your expensive blush-ons, eye-shadows or compact powder, heave a sigh of relief and welcome this valuable piece of advice you’ll thank us for. Collect the broken pieces of makeup into the original container. Cover the kit with a plastic wrap and crush the broken product and even the remains to form a loose powder consistency.  Unwrap it. Pour a few drops of alcohol then wrap it again. Then smoothly spread the whole thing using a spatula, the back of spoon or your fingers. Uncover the wrap. Let it settle for a while. Whoa! It’s ready for use. 

Creams gone Dry
