So here is the makeup we wanted to fix. Two of these aren't broken but they are hard to use so if this worked, we were going to break those and make them more usable.
Messed up makeup.
Mash the makeup and alcohol together with your finger. It will get very very messy and you will probably lose a little bit of your makeup. You may need to add some more alcohol if the mixture is too dry. (If it looks like this picture, you will probably need to add more.)
This is what it looked like when it finally mixed completely together. The texture was like a light mousse.
As you can see this gets really messy.
All cleaned up.
This is what they all looked like when we got them all mixed together. Seems too good to be true!
When it all dried this is what they looked like.
Pros: The makeup is definitely usable again! Word.
Cons: The makeup randomly flakes off and when it dries, and it has little cracks all over.
So does Pinterest know everything? This is definitely a good quick fix if your broken makeup was almost brand new and you really can't bring yourself to replace it. This works much much better if your makeup was still full before it broke. If you only had a little bit left, you'd probably be better off just buying a new one. But this trick does wonders for people like us, who are on a strict budget!
What other Pinterest projects do you think we should try?
***UPDATE 2/29- So this has proven to not be such a great fix. The pink blush has already cracked again & it has not been dropped. We still think it's worth trying but you'll probably have to replace your broken make up after all. Boo :(
