Fixing Crushed Makeup

 I've been meaning to do this post for the past few months, but FINALLY got around to doing it! I received this beautiful Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin shimmer highlighter in a beauty swap from the UK with Becki from Beekle. Unfortunately, this gorgeous highlighter came crushed from the voyage from UK to USA. But I thought, "No fear! I can fix this up in a jiffy!" 
 What You Need:
- Rubbing Alcohol (70% or higher)
- Something to crush up the powder
- Paper towels/newspaper to cover working area

Step 1: After covering your work area with either paper towels or newspaper, crush up the cracked powder into small little pieces.
Step 2: After crushing it into fine pieces, pour the rubbing alcohol until the powder is saturated in it. Make sure there is enough to mix around into a paste.
Step 3: Let it set until it is completely dry. It may take one or two days, depending on the percentage of alcohol present.
The end result may not look as pretty as the original, but you don't have to waste your product any more when it cracks or breaks! It works perfectly well and does not affect its performance.

    1. Oh no! Well hopefully this will help it out!
