Before I get on to how to fix your broken powder, I have to tell you why did this powder shattered into pieces in the first place. Tbh, well tbrrrrh (really really really really honest) there’s nothing I love more than a good bargain. Everything in Australia is super expensive, that includes makeup.
So, after I found out about shipito.com I was so excited! I can finally ship makeup from the US! Usually whenever I ship something they arrived in good condition. But this time, my poor pressed powder was the victim of the roughness from the delivery guys.
Hhhh….. #sigh that’s what happened when you are trying to safe money. BUT, don’t worry because it is super easy to fix it!
Here are the step by step how tos :
- Alcohol, not the kind that you drink. Obviously. You can find this in any pharmacy. I just borrowed mine from a friend. Why buy when you can get it for free?
- Spoon to crush the powder
- Butterknife to smoothen the surface
Crush the remaining pressed powder. This step is necessary to prevent clumping.
Pour alcohol to the lid , not straight to the powder. You don’t want too much alcohol because it will take ages to dry. And with a butterknife or spatula, or spoon, mix it, and add alcohol little by little.
Smooth out the edges using butterknife or spatula or spoon whatever you find easiest
Wait for the mixture to dry. If you want you can flatten the surface even more using pins or any flat surface. And with tissue pressed the excess alcohol.
And…..After a few hours… VOILA!!! Katrin 1, Rough Delivery Guy 0 #winning
