How to repair crumbled and cracked powdered makeup

Why is there a nylon stocking on my expensive powdered makeup? It looks ridiculous I know, but it did solve the problem for the short term, until I decided it was just to wacky to have a nylon on your makeup! The nylon was wrapped around the compact, over the powder and tied in the back. Dumb.

I can’t be the only one dealing with crumbled and cracked up makeup. There HAS to be a better way to remedy this problem.

Ever happen to you?

Its an easy fix. Just put a little alcohol on the powder and tamp it down with a paper towel. About a capful should do it.

You could use vodka too if you are so inclined.

Cover it with a paper towel and tamp it down with a lid or something….I used a bottle of hand soap which happened to be the perfect size.

Let it set overnight or until it dries and just as easy as that………
