Dance Life Hack: Fixing Your Powder Compact

powder compact

Dancers: do you ever waste make-up because your powder compact, eyeshadow, or blush crumbles too quickly?

We’ve all dealt with the huge mess it creates!

Here’s an easy life hack to fix your broken powder compact:

  1. Once the powder compact crumbles, press down all of the make-up with your fingers.
  2. Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons of isopropyl alcohol on the product.
  3. Smooth the compact out with your fingers.
  4. Pour an additional 1 1/2 tablespoons of isopropyl alcohol on the product and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  5. When the product dries to a creamy consistency, use a butter knife to smooth the surface.
  6. Fold a piece of a kitchen towel/cloth over the compact to use as a barrier. Smooth the product out with a flat surface (such as a lotion lid).

Voila- your product will be like new!
