Just Add Alcohol

9 Jun

My favorite makeup is Revlon Photo Ready. I swear if they ever stop making it, I might cry. I only use the compact powder, but I go through them pretty quickly.

A few months ago, I saw an idea on Pinterest where you can take broken makeup and fix it.

I already had a compact or two that were almost empty. Am I the only one who gets tired of fighting with that outer ring of makeup left in the compact? Anyway, I hate to be wasteful so I held on to them just in case.


I finally broke down and worked on it this afternoon:


I used the back end of a butter knife to break it all up. Then I loosely spooned the powder into two empty compacts. Used the back end of a spoon to level the powder out. Then poured just enough alcohol into each one to wet the powder.

Then I placed a plastic bag over the make up and again used the back of the spoon to smooth it out. Then I left the compacts open to dry.

They are like new! Cheap and easy way to conserve.
