How to: Fix your broken powder makeup

There is no need to throw your money away on perfectly good makeup! If you happen to break you powder makeup, you can easily fix it with alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and patience! This works for any kind of powder based makeup, such as bronzers, blot powders, eyeshadows, whatever! As you can see I broke my favorite bronzer - MAC "Refined Golden", and instead of buying a new one, which is out in the "Style Warriors" collection, I decided to fix mine and save my money.

So how does it work? Here are the steps! Add a few small drops into your broken powder makeup compact or casing. The next day - All dry and ready to be used again! Xoxo, Sunshine Sugar Scrub.
