Being a Makeup Artist you are always finding ways to improve and organise your makeup and what you work with. This week I found time to arrange my MAC Eyeshadows into their Pro Palettes by making more space for more eyeshadows into each palette as this will make working on the job much easier, accessible and my freelance kit more compact.. See below how it turned out :
|Before I de-potted my MAC Eyeshadows|
Above is how it was originally and how I stored them, you can see I had 15 Eyeshadows in each palette as this is what the inserts allowed. They were secure and looked well however I wanted more Eyeshadows in each palette for the reasons I explained above.
De-potting MAC Eyeshadows - What you need :
Spatula Spoon, Hair Straightener, Safety pins, Damp Cloth (to clean any mess) & Superglue ( There are a lot of tutorials on YouTube that you can follow on how to)
|After - 1st palette de-potted holding 26 colours|
So this is how it looked afterwards as you can see I now have 26 MAC Eyshadows in the palette above - The colours are perfect for Bridal, Weddings, Special Occasions etc
|MAC Mineralize Limited Edition Eyeshadows - I got tempted to depot these beauties too|
I decided to also depot my MAC Mineralise Limited Edition Eyeshadows too which you can see above, I always forgot to include these in my kit as they were singular and decided to add these to my 2nd MAC Pro Palette

Ta-daaa My 2nd Palette de-potted I included the Limited Edition colours in here including glitter and dark Eyeshadows that can be used to create dramatic eyes, party & prom makeup.
Overall i enjoyed the de-potting process and it did take a few hours but I love how my palettes look now even more and more importantly they will be easier to to work with :)
