Saving Face – How To Fix Your Broken Powder Make Up
What have you usually done when you smash your powder compact, blush or eyeshadow? We what not to do is; throw it out, with our help at Sculpt you can absolutely put humpty dumpty back together again! While you’re at it, you can grab your old cream shadow, blush or liner that has dried out, cracked or shrunk and give those the kiss of life too with the same technique!
Here’s how to do both:
What you need: 70% alcohol and can be purchased at your local art supply, plastic wrap; like cling film or a sandwich bag, spatula, dropper, synthetic eyeliner brush; I used this for its round edges and stiff short bristles, Q-tip optional if you’re a perfectionist… you know who you are!
- WRAP IT UP: Completely cover the compact with the plastic wrap and make sure it adheres tightly to contain everything.
- MASH IT UP: With your spatula, crush up the entire pan of shadow, not just the broken pieces. You essentially are turning the pressed powder back into loose powder.
- ADD THE ALCOHOL: Remove the wrap and add at least 10 droppers full of alcohol. You can add a few droppers full at a time to see how much you need. I used about a dozen.
- SMOOTH IT OVER: Now you’ll feel the powder has become soft and paste like and is very pliable, giving you the perfect opportunity to even it out smoothly with your spatula.
- PERFECT THE EDGES: Use your eyeliner brush to smooth it out even further. Give it a few hours to completely dry and it’s like it never happened! To make it extra pretty, clean up the edges with a clean cotton bud
And voila you have beautiful almost new make up!

Chanel, Nars, Clarins and Benefit – these are just a few of the international cosmetic brands that every Irish woman stockpiles into her beauty bag. Last week, I interviewed Suzie O’Neill, creator of AYU Make Up who illustrated to us that home grown, Irish beauty tools could be manufactured to equally as high a standard as their foreign counterparts so, what about make up itself?

t is, dare I say it officially summer season, which means one thing for us Irish folk; heading off to the airport to hop on a plane to catch some guaranteed actual sunshine, that we just are not likely to get here in Ireland. I personally love getting away but I hate being without all my beauty treats, which for me is make up, body lotions, perfumes, hair products, body mists, tan, mitts an the list goes on and on.

Here at Sculpt I love watching trends, especially make up and beauty trends. I think I have some highlight and strobe running through my veins, I am just attracted to pretty beauty things! You know how it is though, one day something is red hot and you can't get you hands on it then in a flash they aren't quite so hot. Remember sleep in rollers anyone?
