DIY | How to De-pot Makeup, Reduce Clutter!

Getting organized and clutter free is a constant focus of mine. As my makeup collection grew, I realized that I needed to reduce the space it took up. One of the ways I accomplished this was de-potting many of my eyeshadows, blushes and bronzers, to create my own palettes.

  • Z palette (or other empty palette)
  • magnetic circles to attach the makeup pot to the palette
  • rubbing alcohol or acetone
  • q-tips
  • wax paper
  • hair iron
