Know what really gets my goose? When my makeup gets gouged. It has happened twice lately to two different expensive gel blushes – Kevyn Aucoin and Urban Decay. The compacts break and then the hinge digs into my precious product. Such a bummer. Fear not, there are remedies. If the container isn’t metal, you can stick the product in the microwave for a few seconds to melt it down. A space heater works too with a heat-safe plate. I use a lip on the top of my fireplace that works well too. Get creative. I’ve seen folks do it junkie style with a spoon and a lighter. Based on my experience, these warming techniques work to reconstitute and resurface creams, gels, or viscous liquids. As the product melts down, carefully remove it from the heat source and allow it to cool. Once it sets, your makeup will have that fresh-glazed, right-out-of-the-package look.Remember to supervise this hair-brained scheme because it probably isn’t that safe or smart. Please don’t set yourself or your home on fire trying to save your blush. Promise?
