HOW TO FIX BROKEN BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Accidents happen. But when it comes to beauty products, all is not lost! Find out how to fix that broken lipstick, shattered powder compact or nail varnish bottle that won’t budge below.
Take a lighter and melt the broken ends of both pieces by waving the flame near each end. Press the pieces together and melt the sides of the stick (waving flame around the seam). Once cool, blend the seam with your finger. Wait for it to cool and then pucker up!
Carefully add the product (such as eyeshadow, blush or face powder) back into compact. Pour rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle. Spritz over the powder and place a sheet of clingfilm over the compact. Press the powder back into place with your fingers or a butter knife. Wait for the product to dry out completely before using again.
NAIL VARNISH THAT WON’T OPEN
It happens to the best of us: a bottle of nail varnish that just won’t open. Solution: put the bottle upside down in hot water so just the handle is submerged. Leave for one minute. Take it out and that pesky bottle should now be a breeze to open.
