Hi guys, I have looked thru youtube and googled how to fix a broken/cracked eyeshadow or blush, but all the suggestion were telling you to use alcohol, can someone PLEASE suggest an alternative for alcohol to fix the powders?
No, you have to use alcohol to fix it. There is no other way :/
Sorry, this is the only technique I know of… Good luck with your blush!
What’s wrong with using alcohol?
There might be a way to skip alcohol but I’ve never tried it so I can’t vouch for quality. Brands like Coastal Scents sell products that allow you to press loose powders into pans. If I’m not mistaken they are generally a blend of silicone oils (dimethicone, cyclomethicone, probably a few crosspolymers too). They’re designed to supply the binders the loose powders need in order to stay pressed. I don’t know how well they’ll work on a broken pressed powder shadow/blush/etc that would already contain binders. It’s worth a shot though.
I remember that a long time ago Fyrinnae sold something very similar they called powder modifier and they mentioned it could be used to revive dried out cream liners and shadows. Looking at the formula on Coastal Scents EZ Press I believe that would work too since it has the silicone oils required. Good luck with your blush!
You can also crush it up and put it in a jar with a sifter, this way you wont have to worry about a change in pigmentation or anything.
