How to: Fix Broken Eyeshadows [Tutorial | DIY]

A while back my [very naughty] cat broke a couple of my Urban Decay eyeshadows: 2 from the Vice 3, and 1 from the Naked 3. Yes, the horror, the horror.

Usually when I manage to turn eyeshadows to dust I throw them away without second thoughts, but with these palettes - being my most loved [and most expensive ones too] - I just couldn't. 

So, with the help of a bottle of surgical spirit and a rusty hair clip, I managed to save them, hurrah!

Really, all you need to do is smash your already quite smashed eyeshadow [I did it in the pan to avoid making a mess] by using a metal tool, any kind will do. 

Then drop a couple of drops of surgical spirit [I think I used around 4-5 drops for each pan], mix it with your metal tool, and when you get a slightly wet consistency [careful, not too wet!], flatten the shadow with a wider tool [I used the back of a fork]

When you're done, leave to air dry. I promise that pigmentation will still be great afterwards! 

As good as new!
