Hi, this is Christina Farrell of, and today's question is "how do I fix a broken eye shadow compact?" Actually, it's super simple so you don't have to throw away your favorite eye shadow. How many times has it happened where your favorite eye shadow just shatters into a million pieces. Well, all you need is a little bit of alcohol and either a knife or a spatual and you can make it as good as new. So the trick is is to place the alcohol on top of the shadow like so and then what you want to do is this is going to form a type of a paste so you want to just gently with your knife or your spatula begin to kind of place together the broken pieces. As you can see it's already starting to look back to normal. It's really fun to do to watching your broken product come back to life. There's something very empowering about it, I'm telling you. Never again will you be trashing that bronzer that shattered in the car. So, as you can see, the shadow is already coming back to life and forming. So what you want to do is once you have it in place, once you've covered all the cracks, you want to let this dry. As the alcohol dries down it's going to form a hard bond with the shadow so your shadow is going to be completely brand new. I like to always keep a spray bottle of alcohol on hand actually as a preventative measures. If you find that one of your eye shadows has a little crack in it just give a little spritz of alcohol, clean it up a little bit and therefore you're really helping to make sure it doesn't head further crack, doesn't shatter or anything like that that drives us crazy in the future. So a two step process and you have a brand new eye shadow. This is Christina Farrell of and today's questions was "how do I fix my broken eye shadows?"
