Do You Have a Broken Compact? Fix It In 5 Simple Steps

If you are a bit clumsy, then you probably dropped your favorite eyeshadow once or twice. Then, when you pick it up, you see that the container is fine, but the powder is messed up and destroyed.

Don’t throw it away, there is a solution that can fix it and make your life easier.

If you want to save your favorite powder, just follow these easy five steps and you are there.

Here’s what you need:

  • Rubbing alcohol, AKA isopropyl alcohol (don’t use water)
  • Your broken powder
  • A pencil
  • A small coin
  • A clean cloth or paper towel

Step One –  Break It

First, you need to crush your favorite powder into a fine dust.

Step Two – Few Drops


If you have a dropper, use it (a teaspoon will also do the trick) and add tiny amounts of rubbing alcohol in it, until the mixture is damp. It’s better if you add more alcohol, but it will take the time to dry.

Step Three – Wrap a coin in a cloth


Use a coin and wrap it in a clean towel or coffee filter.

Step Four – Press Down Evenly


Press down your favorite powder, just to pack it into a compressed powder again.

Step Five – Wait To Dry


You need to wait. It depends on how much alcohol you used, but it can take up to 24 hours. See what’s happening every few hours and if it smells like alcohol, it’s not ready. When it gets dry, you once again have your favorite makeup!
