How to fix cracked pressed powder pan makeup?

Cracked Eyeshadow
If you’ve ever had to put on your makeup in a rush, or are just plain clumsy (ahem), you’ve probably dropped an eyeshadow or maybe even a whole palette. When the product hits the floor, it’s typically a sad, broken, and crumbly mess. Fortunately, there are ways to salvage a broken pan of powder. All you need is a little isopropyl alcohol and some plastic wrap.

Try your best to gather all the broken pieces of powder and put them back in the pan, and then wind a piece of plastic wrap around it to keep the pieces in place. With your fingers, smash the eyeshadow through the plastic to create an almost loose-powder consistency. Then, unwrap it. Add a few drops of alcohol until the powder is saturated with liquid. Once the powder has a malleable texture, use a finger or a mini spatula to smooth it back into the pan. When it dries, your eyeshadow will be as good as new!
