      If you have a favorite eye shadow that accidentally got dropped and it broke into a million little pieces in the compact, don’t throw it out! Here’s a simple repair tip that you can use to save it (along with your favorite powdered blush, etc).

      Take a couple drops of Alcohol (I used vodka) and put them directly into the broken eyeshadow pieces. Place a piece of tissue paper or paper towel over the top of the broken eyeshadow pieces and using the backside of the alcohol cap press down firmly, recompacting the eyeshadow.

      Be sure that the eyeshadow container is on a firm surface or you won’t be able to apply enough pressure to compact it all.

      Then, leave it open overnight to air dry.

      I chose to use alcohol because water can mold and it’s a better preservative that will evaporate.
