In the middle of taking pictures of my MAC palette for a future post, something very disastrous happened.My palette went crashing to the floor before I could save it in time and one of my favorite eyeshadows, Swish, crumbled into bits! Luckily, that was the only shadow that cracked. I did lose a pigment that I pressed into a pan but didn’t really think it was too big of a loss since I still have it in pigment form.
I sat there on the floor staring at the eyeshadow, upset and shocked at what had just happened. Then I thought about how I pressed my pigments into the pan and figured I could just do the same thing for my eyeshadow! All I used was some rubbing alcohol to mix in there, let it dry, and there ya have it. I thought it would be a good tip to share and so I decided to keep my camera out and take pictures of the process!
As painful as it is to see, I broke up the eyeshadow even more to help it mix better for when I put in the rubbing alcohol.
I try not to put in too much alcohol but just enough to get it to a pasty texture. Then, when it was all mixed, I picked up the pan and lightly dropped it on a hard surface to level the product out. I repeated this over and over until it was completely level. It takes maybe two hours for it to dry completely but I like to just let it sit overnight. Here are the finished results:
So, I hope you find this tip helpful and keep it in your back pocket if, God forbid, this happens to one of your favorite powders that you’ve invested in.
