I did a review on some Inglot eye shadows I bought and as I like to keep my eyeshadows in as few a palettes as possible, I thought I would share how I stored these new eye shadows. So if you, like me, didn’t want to buy the Inglot palette and have an unfilled MAC palette at home, then your new best friend is magnetic tape. You can get this in most craft, hobby or art shops. This magnetic tape comes on a roll and is easy to tear off. It has one sticky side and is magnetized on the other. I think I paid about €5 for it and have it an absolute age as you use very little of it at a time.
Or if you’re feeling a bit savvy you can use a fridge magnet sheet. You sometimes get these delivered in through the door, usually with calendars printed on them or your local estate agents details etc.. These are great as they come as a sheet and all you got to do is cut them into little squares and glue them onto the back of your eye shadow pan.
Here a piece of the magnet on the back of one of my Inglot pans, I’ve deliberately left the number of the eye shadow visible, so I’ll know what it is later.
Once you have them all magnatized pop them into your MAC palette, or mix them up with other shadows; the one below has a mix of MAC, Inglot and Urban Decay.
Now Finally test it out by turning the whole thing upside down… brace yourself!
And hey presto they all stay in. Ah.. love a bit of makeup DIY.
