How to Depot Mac Eyeshadows
A lot of you must already be knowing the process of depotting mac eyeshadows. For those of you who don’t know here is how I did. This was my second attempt and thankfully, it was successful one. the first time I tried the non heat method and completely ruined one of my eyeshadow.
- Swiss Knife. Bt you can use other tools also if you have them.
- Regular kitchen knife.
- Tissue Papers
- MAC eyeshadow pots.
Place the point of the knife just where you see separator on the MAC eyeshadow pot. Slowly keep moving your knife. Please take your time here at this stage because if the knife flips, it might damage your eyeshadow. The top and bottom part would separate with a little movement of knife.
This is how it looks once the top part comes off.
Now hold the edge of the pan with a pair of pliers and keep it at a safe distance on flame of the candle. The plastic might catch fire if you keep it too close.
Melt it till it reaches this stage :
Now using a pointy tool, poke the melted part of the pan. You might have to tilt it a little so that there is a place for the eyeshadow pan to come out.
And here is the seperated pan. Let the pan cool for a while before you toss it in your palette.
And you can repeat the process with all the eyeshadows. I depotted 3 eyeshadows last night.
Eyeshadows separated from the pots.
And there you have your pretty MAC eyeshadows Palette.
