Ladies its all about conserving and saving money that we work hard for right? So when it comes to spending money on make up, from foundation to concealer( because you’re applying it to your face) you’re gone to spend a pretty penny.


Talking to a friend about this inexpensive yet simple solution and I decided to share this DIYG trick to help you save that $35-$55 dollar pressed powder you thought maybe ruined! So you ready?

Supplies You Will Need:

Rubbing Alcohol 

Ziplock Bag

Butter Knife

Smooth round surface(size of a quarter)


Step 1

Take your pressed powder and empty into a ziplock bag.

Step 2

Take the back of your butter knife and crush the powder until its very fine.

Step 3

Carefully pour powder back into compact then put a few drops of alcohol into the powder.(Be sure not to put too much alcohol)

Step 4

Mix and pour as you go until you end up with a thick paste

Step 5

Smooth paste into compact and wipe off excess paste around the brim

Step 6

Let it sit overnight on a flat surface

On the next day take a napkin and gently press the napkin over paste to absorb the alcohol
