Depotting Eyeshadows!

 Hello lovelies,

In my last post I told you I had got a palette to put all my MUA shadows in, well I bought 4 more to add in as my other ones were looking a bit grubby. So here’s how you do it;

You'll Need:

Hair Straighteners
Tin Foil
A knife

How to do it:

Step 1: Get your straighteners and put them on full heat, then lay the tin foil on to the bottom plate.

Step 2: Then place the eyeshadow on top of the foil, like shown below, and make sure you leave the lid away from the heat. A lot of people use candles to melt the glue but I decided to use my straightener as it doesn't smell as strong of melting plastic. 

Step 3: Leave the eyeshadow for roughly 2 minutes, but keep checking on it to make sure the plastic isn't melting.

Step 4: After a few minutes the glue would have melted so you can slip a knife under the pan and slowly lift the eyeshadow up. Be very careful when you take the pan out of the plastic container as it will be very hot and you really don’t want to burn your fingers. 

And that’s pretty much it, all you need to do now is pop it into your palette. 

So here's the four eyeshadows I depotted:

I hope you enjoyed my post, if you have any questions let me know!
