We are all about mixing and matching and makeup is no exception. Usually, there are only some specific shades in a palette that we use on a daily basis. Hence, carrying the entire palette around is a bother, especially if you are a frequent traveler or a professional makeup artist!
An easier way to carry travel-friendly makeup is by depotting it. This is one of the most convenient ways of relocating your favorite shades into a multipurpose palette for convenience and easy handling. Here is how you can do it in a jiffy!
Not all palettes come with easily removal pans, so we need to loosen them up with some heat. Candles, stove, flat iron, anything will work. Place a makeup palette on top of a flat iron or a stove for a couple of minutes. Don’t overdo the process, but do allow enough time to melt the glue binding.
Use a sharp-edged tool, like a knife to work around the pan and remove it from its container. Be careful not to upset the dry shadows. You can easily pry lipstick palettes and foundations from the palette also, as it has different containers.
Now that you have successfully removed the pans from its original palette, it is time to transfer to a special magnetic palette, like the ZPalette. It’s always a good idea to label the bottom of the pans with the brand and name of the shade to prevent confusion later. You will thank your stars that you took the trouble to do so.
Try to do a trial run on old shadows that you don’t use, before actually proceeding to your favorite ones. You wouldn’t want to break or crumble your favorites, now would you?
Depotting allows you to minimize your makeup-traveling kit. Plus, it allows you to refill and reuse the makeup palettes and is extremely cost-effective as well. Why buy the entire palette when you only need one particular shade? The depotting trend is setting its roots in the makeup industry and the reasons are evident!
