How often has your favourite eyeshadow palette broken into pieces? Well, we’ve all been there and it is no less than a nightmare for someone who loves her makeup. Doesn’t matter if you didn’t store your eyeshadow in an organised way or if you accidentally dropped it, what matters is how to fix the disaster. While some things can’t really be fixed, they can certainly be repurposed. Same is the case with your crushed eyeshadow palette. So, breathe deep, relax, and do not panic. I’ve listed a few different ways in which you can reuse your fragmented eyeshadow, just like you would use any other brand new product. Read on and can thank me later.
From using your smashed eyeshadow on your cheeks to applying it on your eyes, there’s so much you can do with the product! For instance:
Your eyeshadow palette might be broken into pieces but that doesn’t mean you cannot mix the colours up and use the resulting hue as a blush instead. In fact, you can make a mix of 2-3 shades from the palette to create different shades of blush, as per your skin tone.
This one’s a quick and simple hack. All you need to do is crush each eyeshadow finely and mix it with some petroleum jelly. Voilà, you have a whole new collection of new lip colours at your disposal. You’re welcome!
This is your chance to spice up your eyeliner collection by making them right out of your broken eyeshadow! You just need to add a few drops of baby oil to the finely crushed eyeshadow powder and mix the two till you get a lump-free mixture with eyeliner-like consistency. So, what are you waiting for? Pick up your angled brushes and start painting your eyes rainbow!
This is one of the easiest ways to get them trendy glossy eyes. All you need to do is put one drop of baby oil on the broken eyeshadow and apply it to your eyelids with a brush. It will add shine, colour as well as nourishment to your eyelids, all in one stroke.
All you have to do is finely crush the shade from your palette that you want to see on your nails and add it to a bottle of clear nail paint. Shake it well and let it rest for a couple of hours. Your customised nail polish is ready to be used. Make as many nail polishes as you like without any extra cost!
So, the next time you break your eyeshadow palette, do not stress over it. Use one of our simple hacks, won’t you?
