Ever drop your favorite compact powder and as it falls to the ground, you’re pretty scared to pick it up to potentially see 145,322,145,566,718 broken pieces?
Have no fear, the DIY repressing tutorial is here!
I learned how to repress my broken powders from this post. But decided to re create the DIY as one night I came home to find my contour powder had cracked.
Ironically, it was the same powder as Celina's tutorial. NYX Taupe.
All you will need are some paper towels, rubbing alcohol, a toothpick, and hand sanitizer.
Place paper towels below the powder for a clean working surface
Take the broken powder and break it up into chunks, to create finer pieces use a tooth pick
Add in the rubbing alcohol until you can get a paste like consistency
Create a flat top surface to the best of your ability
Take another piece of paper towel and lay it on top of the compact to remove all the liquids
(Sanitize your hands before this step)
Keep pressing the paper towels a few times until the powder feels quite dry, and you feel no more liquids can be removed.
Let it sit for a few hours- in my case over night, and ta da! Good as new!
Hope you all found this tutorial useful!
