SOS: That moment when your powder pigment crumbles and falls apart.

Salvage: Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the crushed pigment. Place a plastic wrap on top and smoothen with fingers or spoon. Wipe out air bubbles, and let it dry overnight. Tadaah! As good as new.

SOS: That moment when your powdered shadow (or compact) spills in your satchel.

Salvage: Toss out the debris. Wet your toothbrush. And buff till you drop with shampoo or dish detergent for a squeaky-clean arm-candy.

SOS: That moment when your blush, bronzers or eyeshadows loses its intensity.

Salvage: A telltale that you’ve been ignoring your product for way too long. And so, a thin film forms. Simply press a piece of packing tape on and pull to lift it away.

SOS: That moment when even a (beauty) CPR can’t save your eyeshadow.

Salvage: How to turn bad news into a good thing? Deviate by mixing the pigment in clear nail polish. Like a DIY lacquer.

SOS: That argh moment when your nail polish clumps.

Salvage: Conquer this never-ending ordeal by making one investment. In nail polish ‘thinner’ – not to be mistaken for ‘remover’.

SOS: That everyday moment when you swipe on lipstick, but it snaps instead.

Salvage: Scrape, mash and melt pigment with a mild flame (candle or lighter). Pour it in a small container and freeze it for a pot full of lipstick.

SOS: That expensive moment to restock on unfinished mascara four times a year.

Salvage: Lubricating eyedrops can solely increase its life expectancy. Who’d think? A few drops can go a long way.

SOS: That moment when your pencils and creams are dryer than the Rann Of Kutch

Salvage: If it’s makeup, blend it with Vaseline. If it’s skincare, add some olive oil to strike it rich.

SOS: That moment when you can’t reach the tail end of your liquid lipstick.

Salvage: That’s why we have beauty spatulas. Heard of them? Maybe it’s time to get acquainted.

SOS: That moment when your non-aerosol hairspray’s nozzle clogs and spurts thin air.

Salvage: Remove the nozzle and run hot water into it to de-clog. The other good news is that they’re all created equal. So, if the condition’s worse, swapping it for another is no biggie.
