I was devastated and shared my sadness on Twitter. A big thanks you to all the girls who felt my pain and supported me through the tragic time! :)
I started googling on how to fix your broken eye shaodws and the most helpful was KandeeJohnson's video on YouTube. I was able to fix them very easily and the colour payoff was not affected.
Please note that when I took the step by step photos I had already fixed them but wanted to show you visual explanations to my written text.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Surgical Spirit or Rubbing Alcohol (I purchased surgical spirit from Superdrug!)
- A see through plastic bag / zip lock
- 10p Coin or a Quarter.
- A knife or something similar
- Fabric or kleenex
Step 1: Place your broken eyeshadow into the corner of the bag making sure it's secure, use the end of your knife to crush it even further so that the particles will join together easily once the surgical spirit or rubbing alcohol is applied.
Step 2: Remove the eyeshadow from the bag and add a few drops of surgical spirit or rubbing alcohol until the entire eyeshadow is damp.
Step 3: Wrap your coin with piece of fabric or kleenex like so, if you are using fabric wet the surface area with the surgical spirit so it doesn't stick, using fabric will give the e/s a textured effect.
This method can be used to fix blushes, bronzers and even press pigments.
