makeup DIYs hacks and tutorials. How to fix broken eyeshadows and compact powders

Who else has had this problem... you buy that highly coveted new palette of eyeshadows/ blushes/ highlighters... and your favourite shade inevitably smashes, ruining your makeup bag and your dreams 😖 Ugh! Read on for my tutorial on how to fix broken eyeshadows + powders! Saving you money, time and space❣️

Before I attended professional makeup school, smashed powders were one of my biggest beauty bug bears. The inconvenience, the wasted money and products.. the mess!!! Handbags and makeup bags full of smashed eyeshadows and powder means hours of cleanup, money wasted on replacement products and more clutter or unnecessary waste, which is never a friend to us or our planet! I may not be able to wave a magic wand that stops compact powders from breaking, as it's in the hands of the manufacturers to create packaging to prevent it, but I can pass on my knowledge, and teach you how to fix them when they do, as well as how to condense your powder palettes to minimise clutter! 

The highlighter set featured in the video is Pro Supreme Highlighter Gold by Revolution. I found no less than 5 of these half empty palettes in my sisters makeup bag, and was able to condense them into 2 full palettes using the techniques in my video 🤗

Now let's get to it and learn how to fix broken eyeshadows!

Bride at White Ladies Priory, Staffordshire.
Well hello my loves! I'm back with another playlist, inspired by a week of witchy wonder, which has led me down yet another rabbit hole questing for knowledge! If watching Youtube documentaries and reading non fiction was a paying job,  I'd be sitting on a big ole pile of gold right now 😅

I doubt this will be my last post on the topic of witches or the paranormal! I have been enthralled by ancient practices and the parasciences since a young age. The landscapes of my childhood are rich with sacred sites and ancient ruins, bursting with history, legends and myths, such as the one in this weeks title image; White Ladies Priory in Shropshire. Where, surrounded by the energy of this 12th Century monastic site, I have made many fond memories whilst searching for answers to the secrets of the universe!

Despite my week of dark ages and the creeping white lady title image, this weeks playlist has actually turned out to be quite a jolly one, more in keeping with the witchy stylings of Samantha Stephens and Sabrina Spellman than The Three Witches of Macbeth! Mixing crooners, jazz, classic rock and folk! Enjoy!

I'll be back soon with some beauty tips I have been saving up... literally for a rainy day... as well as more music and witchy wonders!

Until next time, creep it real folks!

Love, love love!
