That feeling when you smash your favourite eyeshadow, blush or compact is the WORST. So I figured out how to fix smashed powder makeup using alcohol… the best part about this method is that it doesn’t leave any water, which can be a breeding ground for bacteria. And the consistency of your product stays the same. I hope this is helpful!

    I heard about being able to do this but never got around to trying it out. Now I definitely will! Thanks for this post 🙂

    Brilliant. I’ve tried this and it really works. I also can never get it super smooth 🙂

    Can I use this technique for my Charlotte Tilbury highlighter? (Of the two in one bronzer/highlighter…. very sad to say). Just not sure if it will work for this kind of powder. This post is very helpful even if it doesn’t apply to powder highlighters. Thank you!

      Absolutely! I actually did it with my Charlotte Tilbury hightlighter as well (I was devastated because it’s so pricey!)
