NEW YEAR. NEW ME. Build Your Perfect Makeup Kit!By Delaina Dixon | January 27, 2016 | Beauty, Food Fashion Style
Hey DivaGals! We know you are on your way to making the best version of yourself yet! This #Lifestyle┬áWednesday, we’re sharing one of our fave tricks to simplify your beauty routine!
If you’re like us, you have your favorite shadows that just make your eyes pop. But they may be in several different eye shadow kits. So we’ve combined our favorite colors to make it super easy and convenient!
First of you need an empty case. We popped out the contents of this cute and slim container.
Since the bottom of the case was now a funky mess of the old glue, we relined it with a colorful
magazine ad we cut to size.
You then need to gather your fave colors from other kits. You can extract them with a knife around the edges of the containers. We’ve also read you can use a lighter to soften the glue beneath the container, but use caution so you don’t set it on fire!
Don’t worry if you break up the shadow in its container. To get it reclump it into useable conditioner, spray it with a little alcohol, and gently pat it back into form with a tissue. Let it dry over night.
Now it’s time to get creative. Try assembling the colors in different formats that work best for you – before you set them for good. Once you are satisfied with the layout, it’s time adhere them to the case. You can use super glue or rubber cement if you’re not planning to switch colors in and out. Let it dry thoroughly. If you want to make it a case where you can replace or switch colors, use double-sided tape.
Your new kit is ready — enjoy!
