[HOW TO] by C: Easy steps to fix your broken eyeshadows - Naked 2 palette

I am a clumsy one. No doubt about it. And my clumsiness got the best of me. I dropped my beloved Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and one of the shades shattered into pieces! :( I panicked and frantically Googled 'how to fix broken eyeshadows' because of course, Google knows everything. So this is how I managed to fix my eyeshadow.

You will need:
  • Broken eyeshadow *sigh*
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Small plastic spoon or stick
  • Paper cup
  • Tissue or thin clean cloth
  • Small piece of cardboard cut out to the size of the eyeshadow

Step 1: Pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol into a paper cup.

Step 2: Dip the plastic spoon into the rubbing alcohol to sanitise it.

Step 3: With the sanitised spoon, break the eyeshadow into fine powder particles. Make sure you have a piece of tissue or paper underneath in case you make a mess (which I did lol).

Your eyeshadow should now look something like this.

Step 4: Add a small amount of rubbing alcohol into the powdered eyeshadow.

Make sure you add enough rubbing alcohol to saturate it, but not too much as to make it a pool.

Step 5: Mix it well until a paste forms.

Step 6: Wrap a clean tissue around the piece of cut-out cardboard and firmly press down on the eyeshadow.

 Step 8: The eyeshadow is now looking nice and firm! All you need to do now is to let it dry before using it again. But the palette's looking a little messy so let's clean it up with some tissue and rubbing alcohol.

No more broken eyeshadow - Check. Clean eyeshadow palette - Check. Happy Court - Check.
Mission accomplished! I now have good-as-new (well, nearly) Naked 2 palette again! :D

I hope this step-by-step guide helped you!

Which eyeshadow have you had broken and if you have, how did you fix it?

Love, Court.
