Hello my lovelies!
I get so depressed when I accidentally drop a pan of eyeshadow and it breaks in pieces :(
These two got broken a couple of months ago and since then I haven't touched them at all- such a shame because the right one is my favourite! I couldn't postpone it any longer, so today I got my tools and tried to fix them. This is how I did it:
- rubbing alcohol
- an empty sample jar
- some q-tips
- a toothpick
- a coin to press the pigment
- some tissues
I broke the eyeshadow in pieces with the help of the toothpick...
I cleaned the sample jar with some alcohol and then emptied the broken eyeshadow...
I also cleaned the pan with some alcohol and broke all pieces of eyeshadow into a powder with the help of a q-tip (which has a flatter head)...
Then I added 5-6 drops of alcohol into the powder eyeshadow and mixed it thoroughly...
I emptied the paste into the eyeshadow pan...
I placed the coin in the centre of a tissue, folded it so that it forms a kind of pressing tool and pressed the pigment sooo hard that my hands ached...
And this is the end result! Ok, it's not perfect- you can see some cracks in the perimeter of the pan, but at least it won't leak brown powder in my make-up bag ;)
I used for the left eyeshadow more drops of alcohol, so the paste got less thick and the pattern of the tissue was printed on the surface.
No matter the result of a DIY project, at the end I'm always proud of it... Now I'm hoping I don't break another one and force myself to improve my skills ;)
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
