Test Title 1



the fix: shattered compact makeup

we have a lovely vintage bathroom in our tiny apartment. complete w/ lovely (and tiny) vintage pedestal sink. i really like it. however - my makeup bag has taken a tumble or two lately due to the limited space.

been there? have no fear - here's the fix!


use a clean brush to move the broken powder back into the center of the compact.


 add a few drops of rubbing alcohol.


using a clean finger or the back of a spoon, press and smooth the makeup back into shape.


leave the compact open to dry over night. the alcohol will completely dry and it's good as new!


a few extra notes:
* if your makeup spills out on to the bathroom floor - it's probably a wash. cross-contamination and all. :( BUT as long as it remains inside the compact, it's clean and good to go!
* for extra protection when you travel, consider adding a cotton round inside your compacts between the powder and the lid.

and if that doesn't make your day - this definitely will:


love these amazing (and adorable) sisters representing my city well on the new ABC Series NASHVILLE. have you been watching?
