We posted this picture on our Instagram
and SidekickBeauty received requests to share how we depot our eyeshadows.
Ask & you shall receive!
To depot your eyeshadows you need just a few items, that we are pretty sure you can find in your bathroom. (magnets… not so much)
Items you need:
& of course a Makeup Palette to put your eyeshadow in
The first thing you want to do is take your tweezers and push the pointed part of the tweezers between the insert and the outside of the pot. You want to push (gently) until you hear a popping noise. Once you hear it pop, go ahead and remove the insert from the pot.
The next thing you want to do is place the insert on your straightener (on of course). We are using the straightener as our source of heat, and will melt the glue inside. We recommend leaving the eyeshadow on the straightener for about 10-15 seconds. If needed go ahead and leave it a little longer, checking every 5 seconds. After you have heated the pan, go ahead and place it with the shadow facing down. Grab your magnet, we got ours from Nigel’s Beauty Emporium, and place it on the back of the eyeshadow pan.
The last step is optional but we recommend it! We like to peel the sticker off the back of the eyeshadow container and place it on the back of the magnet, that way if you forget what your eyeshadow is called, you have a reference. If your sticker is being stubborn, go ahead and place it on your straightener for about 5 seconds, this will help it peel off easier!
Thats it! You have successfully depotted your eyeshadow!
Super easy, hassle free, and best part of all you will have empty containers to Back 2 MAC (unless you depotted other brands).
To Back 2 MAC you need 6 empty plastic or glass containers.
At a MAC counter you are eligible to receive a free lipstick or lipgloss product excluding Viva Glam Products.
If your prefer going to a MAC store, you are eligible to receive a free lipstick, lipgloss, or eyeshadow.
So don’t throw away your empty containers!
We hope you enjoyed this post and video, and please share with us your before & afters of your eyeshadows!
We would love to see your collections!Advertisements
