How to | Depotting MAC Lipsticks

As a makeup artist you always try to make the most out of your kit. You want everything to IMG_2695be organised and neat. It is key to a fast and professional work.

Especially when it comes to lipsticks it can get confusing and tedious.

I want to show you an easy way to make sure all of your lipsticks are in one place and you no longer have to carry around heaps of lipstick tubes.


Here’s what you’ll need:

IMG_2703
Your Favourite Lipsticks
IMG_2701
Some kind of spatula or knife
IMG_2700
A spoon

Also:

  • Candle
  • Matches
  • Some paper towel
  • MAC Palette

First of all you want to measure your lipstick and cut off how much you would want to IMG_2707put in your palette. For the MAC palette I recommen using around 2/3 of the lipstick. Place it in your spoon.

As a next step you will hold the spoon over your burning candle an MELT the lipstick.

Caution: Make sure the lipstick does not boil and doesn’t get too hot. It should just melt evenly.

 

 

Once it has melted, just simply pour it in your palette. Don’t worry if you mess up, you IMG_2712can always clean up the edges. Let it dry for around 5 minutes.

 

 

 

 

And you are done!

Quick tip: Make sure to put the name tags of the lipsticks on the bottom of the palette for reference if someone asks you or you run out of it.

I just recently came back from my London trip where I, of course, went makeup shopping.

We popped into MAC at Covent Garden and I finally got my hands on their ‘Copper’ pigment which has been sold out everywhere in Switzerland. I was so excited to finally do a look with it.

Here’s the look I created
