Makeup can be very pricey, so when it doesn’t work out for one reason or another, it can be a hit to the pocketbook! But beauty expert Mally Roncal is showing you how to turn your makeup mishaps into beauty opportunities!

Problem 1: Your Lipstick Broke

Solution: Mally shows you how to use a lighter to (carefully!) melt your lipstick back into shape, then refrigerate. Just like new!

Problem 2: Your Foundation is too Thick

Solution: Add a little mineral water to thin it out.

Problem 3: Your Powder is too Dull

Solution: Just shave a soft, shimmery blush into your powder to give it a new glimmer.

Problem 4: Your Foundation is too Flat

Solution: Grate some highlighting powder into your foundation, and mix well, then apply as usual.

Problem 5: Your Eyeshadow Gets Smashed

Solution: Add petroleum jelly, coconut oil and cocoa butter to the loose eyeshadow powder, and you’ve got a homemade lip gloss!

Problem 6: Your Powder Compact Got Smashed

Solution: Just add a little rubbing alcohol to the powder in your compact, and blend. It will be as good as new!
