Freakin Eye Shadow!

Glam1Freakin Eye Shadow!

Have you ever dropped your eye shadow and it shattered everywhere?!?!  I found this lovely secret to something that has frustrated me to NO END in the past!  There is nothing worse than spending your hard earned cash on new eye shadow and then dropping it and shattering it everywhere!!!  Ladies, there is an answer now to shattered eyeshadow.

So I was looking up make-up tutorials on YouTube, and came across this delightful professional make-up artist  Kandee Johnson, who is amazing.  Once I saw this video I knew I had to share it because Kandee has saved me mucho dinero.

I’m here to teach you how to repair it.

Here’s what you need:

  1. shattered eyeshadow
  2. coin
  3. rubbing alcohol
  4. tissue
  5. butter knife
  6. medicine squirter

{not pictured} plastic bag or plastic wrap

Step 1:
Place the shattered makeup carefully into the plastic bag holding the plastic carefully over the top.

Step 2:
Hold the plastic tightly across the top of the eyeshadow and with the back of the butter knife smash all the remaining bits of eyeshadow into a fine powder.

Step 3:
When the eyeshadow looks like this, you’re ready to go.  Pull the eyeshadow out of the plastic bag, we’re on to step 4!

Step 4:
Using the medicine squirter put a couple squirts of rubbing alcohol into the broken eyeshadow.  Make sure the eyeshadow is completely saturated with the rubbing alcohol.

Step 5:
Now put the tissue on top of the eyeshadow and put the coin on top of that.  Press down with all the force in the world.  You’re re-compacting the eyeshadow, so don’t be shy.

Step 6:
Enjoy your new eyeshadow!
Isn’t that awesome?  Listen, don’t judge me.  It’s the small bits of happiness in life that make it worthwhile.
