Video Tutorial - Getting Crafty With Makeup Series - How to Depot Your Eyeshadows!

Here is part 2 of Getting Crafty with Makeup!  In this video I show you how to depot your individual eye shadows so you can place them in a easy to organize palette.  This helps you to see what you have, keep it all together, and save space!  This is a great method whether or not you are a makeup artist or just someone who likes to be organized.  There will be 2 more videos to come, next will be how to fix your broken eye shadows.  So if you do happen to get any casualties, don't worry and don't throw anything away!

If you happen to be depotting a ton of MAC eye shadows, don't forget about their Back 2 MAC program.  For every 6 full size containers you bring back to a store you get an eyeshadow or lipstick at the free standing stores or a lipstick at any Nordstrom or Macy's. 

Here's what you will need:
Flat Iron at 170 degrees
Wax Paper
A safety pin
Dot stickers
Magnets with a sticky side
Palette to place your eye shadows in.  I used  I can get you a discounted rate with a bulk order, just email me.

Here are some tips:
Not all eye shadows are like the MAC example I gave in the video.  Most you can just set directly on the palette.  As long as it isn't too thick. 
Keep on the flat iron for about 30 seconds.
Place the safety pin in an opening between the plastic and the metal pan.  Push hard all the way down and then angle to get under the metal pan.  Slide it around to loosen up the glue.
Once cool, place the label and magnet to the bottom.
If you have too much sticky glue, use 90 proof rubbing alcohol on a Qtip or cotton ball to remove any excess. 
Now you can place your eyeshadow in your new palette!

**If you have a casualty.  Don't panic.  Just set aside and look for my how to fix video tomorrow.  This may happen and this does take some practise to get it perfect. 

Good Luck and Happy Organizing!
