How to Mend an Eyeshadow

Hi Tory,

It's first thing in the morning and you're in a rush. You grab your makeup to do your face, and one stumble later your palette is on the floor and there are bits of eyeshadow everywhere.

Don't panic!

your palette is on the floor and there are bits of eyeshadow everywhere

Eyeshadows (and blushers, and bronzers, and anything that comes in a pan) are really easy to fix with a little bit of surgical spirit and a little bit of know-how

What You'll Need

  • Surgical spirit/rubbing alcohol
  • A teaspoon (to pick up the loose shadow)
  • A few cotton pads
  • An eye dropper or pipette (you can pick these up in the pharmacy section of your local chemist

All fixed!

Hugs and kisses,

    Fantastic tip! I just usually throw mine out if they break, I won't be doing that anymore!

    1. Excellent! :)
      It also means that we won't necessarily be passing over the bargain bins full of broken shadows any more ;)

  2. What a brilliant tip! Thank you.

    1. You're very welcome :)
      It's just sooooo frustrating otherwise - and I'm such a klutz that I'm forever dropping things. The last thing I need in my life is a bunch of discarded eyeshadows on account of my clumsiness ;)
