How To Fix Broken Makeup Products

Does your heart skip a beat when you see your favourite make-up in pieces? Luckily, there are some super tips you can use to bring your favourite products back to life.

Good quality makeup products cost a bomb, and the last thing you want to do is waste them. So when you see that box of compact powder or blush cracked to smithereens, your heart cracks in just as many pieces. Just as it melts with that limited edition shade of lipstick that has melted in the tube.

Here are some simple tips that can make your makeup as good as it used to be.

How to fix broken lipstick

  1. Using a match or lighter, gently melt the top layer of lipstick that is still in the tube.
  2. Place the broken end on top of this.
  3. Melt the outer edge for extra hold and security.
  4. Cool in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes.
  5. Remove and smoothen the lumps for a seamless look.

How to fix broken compact powder or blush

How do you repurpose broken crushed compact powder? Simple! You crush it up even further.

  1. Empty all the contents from the case in a bowl and break the chunks into further small pieces.
  2. Add a small amount of rubbing alcohol to this and rub together until a paste forms.
  3. Using a small spoon, scoop the paste back into the compact and smooth into place with a spatula, pushingit out to the corners of the case.
  4. Leave to dry until it forms a solid cake.
