How to fix a broken powder highlighter!

I'm usually one of those who throws away makeup if it's broken but NOT TODAY! My dear Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm broke the other day, no idea how, and I was devastated. It's my absolute fave highlighter ever (I've only owned two tbh) and I just couldn't bare the thought of spending another £20 when there was so much left. Here's what I did to save it!

You're going to need:

Broken stuff A toothpick, spoon, whatever Eyedrops Makeup wipes

Start by breaking it even more (trust me on this)

A little bit more!

Until it looks like a powder..

Squeeze 4 drops of eyedrops on to the powder and place the face wipe on top. With clean (!) fingers, press down onto the powder until you have an even surface.

Like so!

And voila! I promise I'll keep you updated if this actually lasts or not.. but so far so good! I've swatched it on my arm (to the left of the pic) and it's exactly the same as before. Let me know if you decide to test this out and what the outcome is!
