How To: Depot Eyeshadow

As promised in an earlier post, here is my step to step guide to depotting singular eyeshadow pans. I like to depot my eye shadow to put into palettes, just saves so much space!! Oh MAC does sell eyeshadow in pan forms but its not all stores or counters and sometimes you just forget to ask for it in pan form. In this How To I’m using MAC eyeshadow pans.   Step one: Gather all the equipment – Hair Straightener, A bit of grease proof paper, A towel or an old top you don’t mind getting dirty/stained, a flat ended screwdriver (some people use a tweezer) and a nail (some people use a pin, a toothpick or whatever you can find.)

 

Step Two: You will now have to separate the eyeshadow pan from the casing. Use your screwdriver and place it in between the tiny gap between the pan and the case.

 

Step Three: Now that the screwdriver is in the gap, twist it a little and the pan should pop right out.

 

Step Four: You now need to separate the metal eyeshadow pan from the plastic pan. Heat up your hair straightener, mine takes roughly 10seconds to heat up so I didn’t have to do it earlier, but if yours takes longer, do it earlier to avoid wasting time.  BE CAREFUL at this stage, so you don’t burn yourself!!! Place your grease proof paper on the straightener and then the eyeshadow on top.

 

Step Five: Leave it on for a few minutes (depending on how high the heat it), making sure you don’t let the plastic melt too much, just gets messy. Once the base has soften stick in the nail through the back and push the pan out!

 

Step Six: Be careful not to burn yourself, remember metal heats up very quickly!! You want to completely remove the metal pan from the plastic pan, I used my hands to quickly pull it apart and dump the eye shadow facing down on to the towel (some people use clamps or tweezers, I’m just lazy). Put the eyeshadow facing down because the glue will still be hot and you don’t want it sticking to everything.

 

 

TADA!!! You have no depotted your eyeshadow. Normally at this stage because the glue is still hot I’ll use it to stick a bit of magnet to the base of the eyeshadow pan, this makes it easier for me to put it in my palette without it falling out. I don’t have pictures because I forgot to take some!!

Day Sixty Five: A Touch Of Colour

Brought a new blush today!!! Normally I don’t like using cream blushes as they are more fussy to blend and just messy to use!!! LOL (I’m lazy what can I say).

I was looking for a peachy nude with a touch of pink blush but I couldn’t find a nice powder blush one, so the assistant suggested I try Lilient, a cream blush. So I swatched it and it was just the colour I was looking for!!! I had to get it!

 

Day 11: What’s in Your Make-up Bag

So here is a photo of the make-up I carry with me!!

A lot of the times I would do my make-up before hand and if I do then the only thing I carry with me is…. Actually its the same lol Just makes it easier to always have it in my bag…. I had a make-up bag but I gave it to me mum!!!

Here is a list of the products above:

MAC‘s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
MAC‘s Venomous Villains’ Limited Range in Evil Queen’s Beauty Powder in Oh So Fair.
Chanel‘s Rouge CoCo Range in Vendome
Dior‘s Rouge Range in Beige Quadrille
Topshop‘s Black Eye Liner Pen
Benefit‘s BAD Gal Liner Waterproof
Lancome‘s Hypnose Mascara
MAC‘s 129SE brush

I just want to talk about some of the products above now, first up is the Mac Beauty Powder. I normally don’t buy Mac’s Beauty Powders as I don’t think the pay off is that good. The only other one I have is the Liberty of London one in Shell Pearl (because I liked the sheen it gave). Surprisingly this beauty powder is pretty good, the colour pay off is pretty good!!!

I always carry two lip sticks with me, a nude and a red. Nudes are wearable all the times!! This Dior one its pretty similar to my natural lip colour but it just gives my lips a little more to it and I really like the texture of it!! Next is a Chanel red, I love wearing reds, especially when I feel like crap as red just makes me pout my lips ^____^ I normally love Mac lipsticks, only because they have such awesome colours but for some reason the lipsticks gives my lips some sort of allergic reaction!! ARRGGGG I have quite a few of their lip sticks as well!! Auh well I’ll stick use them I just shouldn’t wear any lipsticks for the next 3 days LOL

Topshop’s Black Eye Liner Pen is possibly the best eye liner pen I have ever used!!! I don’t know why but I just love it!!! I have used many eye line pens but nothing gives me what I get from this one!!! I was so upset when they had sold out of it for a few months as I have wanted to buy some back up ones!!! But I went in the other day and they had them back in stock, so what did I do? Of course I got more!!!
