The tips and tricks to help you fix your broken makeup within minutes

There is nothing more heartbreaking than buying a new powder, eyeshadow, blush or lipstick and cracking it into a million different pieces after just a few uses.

But there are ways to repair your broken makeup without having to throw it straight out.

From microwaving lipsticks to put them back together to adding rubbing alcohol to smashed powders, here are simple tips and tricks to help you to repair your favourite items – often within minutes.


Countless makeup artists and experts including Queenii Rozenblad swear by rubbing alcohol to help to fix their broken powders.

All you need to do is get a tissue, a coin or foundation stick, a toothpick, the rubbing alcohol and your broken eyeshadow.

Pour the rubbing alcohol into the eyeshadow and break it up a little more with the toothpick.

Then, place your tissue on top and use your coin or foundation to gently press down to re-set the shadow.

Checking on it periodically, you should make circular motions while you press down with the coin.

Finally, leave it alone for a few hours to ensure that the shadow is all back together.

If you don’t have rubbing alcohol to hand, there is another way.

Simply pour a few drops of micellar water onto the cracked powder and smooth it into the cracks before shutting the compact overnight.

The ingredients in the product reportedly help to reset your powders, meaning it’s easier to continue using your makeup.

Simply mix the powder with a few drops of salty water and smooth it back out with a knife to ensure it’s good as new.


Fixing a broken lipstick can be even easier than dealing with powders, if you have ten minutes to spare.

While some beauty bloggers swear by blow drying their products, others use the heat from a candle or microwave their product back together.

Other experts freeze the broken lipstick in their freezer for a few hours, which will help to bond the broken pieces back together.

If there’s a tiny scrape of lipstick left in your tube, scoop it out with a cotton bud and mix with Vaseline to make a moisturising lip balm.
