a broken eyeshadow, powder or blush

repair broken eyeshadowPour the shattered eyeshadow on the waxing part of a sheet of baking paper and with a spatula pulverize it; put it in the original container and add the red alcohol to make it thick and amalgamate being careful to distribute it in the edges to avoid a second break.
I suggest you cover the mixture with wax paper and press gently with a glass or something like that. After this let it dry and you'll have a new eyeshadow!

Ps: Don't be scared from the darker shade you'll have when you put the alcohol, that will clear after drying.
One of the most difficult makeup things is "choosing the best foundation shade". I had a lot of problems choosing it and sometimes I bought the wrong texture, during the years I read a lot about it and I've found my infallible technique. 

When I go to a new makeup store I choose some shades that seem similar to my skin and I put a bit of them in my jawline or in alternative in the middle of the chest. 
I determine the color that looks more similar to my shade just blending it: if it seems to disappear, well is the One I need!
The color fountation, as the concelear, is the most important makeup secret so please don't choose it without trying and buy always the right shade!

Lately I had some problems with my skin like excessive sebum and black spots but 8 months ago I discovered the Konjac Sponge that without any soap is making a miracle in my face.

What is Konjac exactly?
Konjac sponge
The Konjac is a perennial asian tuber that contains proteins, iron, vitamin E, B, C, D and a good percentage of carbohydrates; for this reason is used to prevent health problems and to make spaghetti and fettuccine very useful if you're on diet.

And the sponge?
The Sponge is 100% natural and biodegradable, incredibly soft and delicate, it is suitable for all types of skin and is perfect for daily face and body cleansing . The structure of the sponge is naturally alkaline and helps fighting impurities and balances the acidity according to the PH, moisturizing naturally. Since I discovered it  I made in a few seconds my daily deep cleansing with a gently exfoliating action; however I use my homemade makeup remover but I'm not using any cream because the skin is deeply hydrated. I bought my first Konjac Sponge in a fair trade shop at a cost of 4 euro.

How to use it?
Dip the sponge in water and wring thoroughly to expel water, gently massage the face with circular movements then rinse the sponge and hang it in a dry but breezy location. Do not store it in damp location because it will ruin the structure of the sponge.
Now I buy my sponges on amazon for less than 5 dollars and my skin is now beautiful!

What do you need?
9 parts of alcohol 95 ° (the one you buy to make cakes)
