I love makeup! I love mixing up different colors to get different looks, although I do tend to stay with a minimal look. I don’t have too many opportunities to rock a glam look! But, that doesn’t stop me from stocking up on new palettes and colors! The one thing I don’t like, though, is all the random compacts I end up with and trying to find a way to store them and access all of them. I don’t know about you, but I tend to get in a rut with one or two palettes because it’s easy to grab and go. To solve this problem, I’ve recently embraced the idea of ‘depotting’!
Depotting is where you remove the little pans of makeup from the compact or palette it came in and store them in a universal magnetic palette. You may be asking, why would one do this?! Well, you can mix, let’s say eyeshadows, from different palettes/manufacturers into one small case for your own customized look! It also makes traveling a LOT easier! There are a lot of different cases out there that you can buy to store your depotted makeup pans, but my personal favorite is the Unii Palette.
Here’s a peek at one of my Unii Palettes:
And this is what it looks like inside:
I tend to mix the colors from these 2 sets frequently, so this will make it a lot easier to access both palettes!
I’ve been busy depotting my other makeup and plan to share a tutorial with you on Friday to show you how easy it is! Not only will this clean up my makeup space, but it will be so much easier to find stuff now! No more forgotten eyeshadows for me!
If you’re intrigued, maybe give it a try with an older palette and see what you think!
