Add 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Mix well.
Place the mixture back into the compact pan. Then place a sheet of paper over the powder and with a anything with a hard surface (coin, book, bottle, etc) on top of it. 
Gently but firmly apply pressure down to secure the powder into the compact 
Let it air dry.

Add 1-2 drops of rubbing alcohol into the empty pan.
Add about half of the powder into the pan. mix contents. 
Add another drop of alcohol then add the remaining powder. Evenly distribute and smooth it across the pan.
