1. Have a little cry over the fact that your beautiful powder has cracked

3. Fill a shot glass full of 1.5 tbs of rubbing alcohol (if a standard bronzer/highlighter size) and pour over the product


4. Smooth out with your fingers


5. Pour on another shot glass full of 1.5 tbs of rubbing alcohol and leave for 5-10 minutes


6. Use a knife to smooth out the creamy powder


7. Dab all over with a piece of kitchen towel to flatten and dry

8. Enjoy your shiny new repaired powder!
