How To Bring Your Broken Powders Back To Life

Because there's nothing more devastating than a smashed Becca Champagne Pop.

It has happened to the best of us. You’re rushing around one Tuesday morning and your clumsiness causes your mini tower of most-used pressed powders to go crashing on the ground. There’s that moment where you stop breathing for a nano second and hope that everything’s okay. But no, your beloved translucent powder is now in a million pieces. There’s nothing more heartbreaking. But, alas, it can be fixed.

What you’re going to need is your broken powder (obviously), some rubbing alcohol (you can pick that up in most pharmacies) and a teaspoon.

So all you have to do now is crush together the remaining pieces of your powder, even the parts that didn’t smash in the first place. Then add a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol, let that soak in and smooth it all out with the back of the teaspoon. Try to get it as smooth and as even as possible. Now all there is to do is wait. Leave it to dry overnight and it’s as good as new.

Now there’s no need to get rid of your broken blushers or bronzers, or be scared to move your sad little broken powder incase it goes literally everywhere. This little trick is a lifesaver.
