    Great idea! Use rubbing alcohol to fix broken powder in a compact.

    How to: Fix your broken powder makeup I could not count the amount of money I have wasted by throwing away makeup that I thought was trash, when I could have fixed it. There is no need to throw your money away on perfectly good makeup! If you happen to break you powder makeup, you can easily fix it with alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and patience! This works for any kind of powder based makeup, such as bronzers, blot powders, eyeshadows, whatever! As you can see I broke my favorite bronzer - MAC "Refined Golden", and instead of buying a new one, which is out in the "Style Warriors" collection, I decided to fix mine and save my money. All you need is a few drops of alcohol into your broken powder compact. Usually it would be said to use 75%+ based alcohol, but this is because the more alcohol concentrate, the faster it dries. Any percentage of alcohol will do though, because I like to leave it out to dry overnight. Don't worry about the alcohol staying in the powder and causing your skin to dry out, it will completely evaporate. Alcohol dries very quickly that is why it is recommended for use on new wounds on your body, because it evaporates very fast and leaves little residue.

    To fix broken makeup powders 1. Add a few small drops of rubbing alcohol into your broken powder makeup compact or casing. 2. Smudge the soft soaking powder around, making it into a paste-like substance and re-form it by smoothing it out with your finger or the back of a spoon. 3. Let it dry overnight for best results.
