Breaking your favorite powder blush can be frustrating, especially when it’s still usable. But don’t worry, it’s possible to fix it and bring it back to life.
The best part? It’s a straightforward process anyone can do at home. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps to fix your broken powder blush.
Gather your tools and materials
Before you start fixing your broken powder blush, it’s essential to gather everything you’ll need. Here’s a list of tools and materials you’ll need:
- Broken powder blush
- Rubbing alcohol
- A small mixing bowl
- A small spatula or spoon
- A clean tissue or paper towel
- A clean, empty compact
- A pressing tool (like a coin, makeup spatula, or presser)
Break up the remaining blush
First, you need to break up the remaining blush into a fine powder. You can do this by using a spoon or spatula to crush any remaining chunks of blush. Make sure the powder is as fine as possible to have a smoother finish.
Mix the broken powder
Next, transfer the broken powder into a small mixing bowl. Mix the powder with the back of the spoon or spatula to break up any remaining chunks. You can also use a sifter to remove any hard lumps from the powder.
Add rubbing alcohol
After mixing the powder, it’s time to add rubbing alcohol. Add a few drops of alcohol to the powder, and mix it until you get a paste-like consistency. The alcohol helps the powder to adhere and creates a smooth finish.
Press the blush back into the compact
Now that you have your paste-like consistency, it’s time to press it back into the compact. Take your clean, empty compact and transfer the mixture into it. Use a pressing tool (coin or makeup spatula) to press the mixture firmly into the compact.
| Pro tip: If you don’t have an empty compact, you can use a small container or an eyeshadow palette to store your newly fixed blush. |
Let the blush dry
After pressing the mixture into the compact, let it dry for a few hours or overnight. Leaving it to dry ensures that it sets perfectly and has a smooth finish.
Use a clean brush to apply
Finally, your broken powder blush is fixed and ready to use. Use a clean brush to apply the blush as you would normally. You’ll notice that it works as well as it did before it was broken.
| Pro tip: You can use this process to fix any broken powder makeup, including eyeshadows, bronzers, and highlighters. |
With these easy steps, you can fix your broken powder blush and bring it back to life. You don’t have to throw away your favorite powder makeup when it breaks. Instead, use this process and give your products a new lease on life.
