Are you worried about how to put together your broken eyeshadow? Don’t be! Here are some helpful tips that will make the process easy and fun. With a little time and effort, you’ll have your old eyeshadow looking good as new in no time. So let’s get started!

With Alcohol

If the shadows are broken or crumbled, you can restore them in just five minutes.

  • Collect both the eyeshadow powder and the larger pieces in a plastic bag. Crumble them into a smooth powdery mass.
  • Pour the resulting powder back into the package.
  • Use a pipette or syringe to draw some alcohol. You only need a few drops for a small case with shadows. Add the alcohol slowly until it becomes creamy. The texture mustn’t become liquid – the mass should be thick and dense enough.
  • Cover the “medallion” with shadows using a napkin. Then press down on the surface with the convex side of the spoon. It will make the shadows compress again. You can also do this with a metal coin if it is the right size.
  • Take the napkin off and leave the shadows open for one day. The alcohol will go away, and the smell will disappear. Then you can use the shadows again.

Without Alcohol

Not everyone can use alcohol to fix their shadows. If you have sensitive skin, this method is not for you. So how can you make your shadows look better without using alcohol?

You can turn powder eyeshadows into creamy ones by using petroleum jelly or glycerin instead of alcohol. Once you’ve mixed the new texture, it makes sense to shift the shadows into a case that is more convenient for the new texture.


  • Turn on the iron, but do not pour water into the steam.
  • Grind the shadows into a powder, just as you would with alcohol.
  • After crushing the shadows, take the metal container out of the case. The pigment is usually placed in a metal container. Pour colored powder into it and tamp it down with a spoon.
  • Unplug the iron and wait for it to cool down. Once it’s cooled, press it against the powder in a metal container for 10-15 seconds. You can do this a few times. The heat and pressure will make the shadows look almost new again.

Talcum Powder

It is the easiest way to fix your eyeshadow, but it only works if the shadow is in one piece.

  • If the shadow is loose, put some talcum powder on a napkin and press the shadow into the powder. Make sure that the entire surface of the shadow is covered with talcum.
  • Now take the shadow and tap it on a hard surface. It will help the talcum powder penetrate all the cracks and crevices.
  • Brush off the excess talcum powder, and your eyeshadow should look good as new!

With these simple tips, you’ll be able to fix your broken eyeshadow in no time. So don’t worry – you can still enjoy your favorite shades, even if they’re not perfect. With a little effort, you can make them look new again.
