Watch How You Can Revive Your Broken Makeup in Just 10 Seconds

All beauty-lovers know this terrifying moment well: You're applying your favourite bronzer, blush, or any other pressed powder when suddenly, your hand slips. You feel your heart drop as the compact crashes to the floor. After you gingerly open it, you discover that your beloved product is now totally shattered — how devastating.

However, there's no need to relegate your broken makeup to a beauty graveyard. Instead of letting it rest in pieces, bring it back to life! All you need for this quick, miracle-working hack is a teaspoon and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. You want to pour some of the liquid into the compact little by little until the powder has absorbed it. The fragments should soften and turn into a paste, which you can press back together with your spoon. Let it dry overnight, and you'll see that your product is as good as new.

Still not convinced? Watch the brief video below, in which you'll see that a highlighter is restored using the aforementioned method. The high-wattage glow of the formula isn't compromised at all — see for yourself, then learn how to master this hack here.
