Why does toast always land butter-side down? And why, when you drop your makeup bag, does the most expensive item break into a million little pieces? The good news is that if this happens to you, you don’t have to throw it away or dab crumbs of powder on your face. You can, in fact, magically restore it to its former glory. Here’s how.
Step 1: Smash it up
Break up the rest of the powder in its container so that you’ve got even powdery crumbs.
Step 2: Do some actual magic
Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the fine crumbs. Using your finger, reshape the mixture and firmly press it down.
Step 3: Dry it out
Leave it to dry over night. Et voilà! It’s like nothing ever happened.
