Summer Tip #8

Sorry for the delay. As you know life has been crazy with school and also my mom getting married on the 28th. Ah! Sisters are in town and so not much time for anything these days but preparing for the wedding and getting done with school.

Butttt today I bring you a fabulous tip. Even if you don't need it now, you will eventually. This happens to the best of us so takes close notes!!
Today I bring you with, Summer Tip #8.
(Thank you to my bigger sis Mandi who gave me this wonderful tip!! Love you sister!)

--Have you ever dropped your favorite eyeshadow to have it fall and brake into pieces?? Your devastated because your beautiful new eye shadow is now broken right in front of your eyes. Well we have a solution to fix all your problems.

1.Take your eyeshadow and break it into smaller pieces, making it like dust.

2. Mix 2-3 drops of 90% isopropyl alchohol with the eyeshadow

3. Take a toothpick and stir it all around, making it look like mud. You dont want it soupy, kinda of paste like.

4. If you are using a MAC eyeshadow a quarter will fit perfectly inside of the container. After the eye shadow is mixed, place the quarter on top of the shadow to make it nice and flat.

5. Remove the quarter and walk away! Put it in a room where a fan is and allow it to dry. 3-4 hours later, magic has happened! Your broken shadow is now back to a solid form.

Its amazing!!!! You will have all sorts of shadows back from the dead. From now on dont throw those broken shadows away. I've never done it with blush , but I'm sure it will work all the same!

Have a fabulous week! I know I will. (Pics to follow my weekend)
