So I decided it was time that I did something about it. So in a fit of rage, I took a dull knife, wedged it between the shadow and the cardboard, and pried out every single one of the shades. Then, I was left with 16 depotted shadows sitting on top of my desk, with nowhere to go. I scrambled through every drawer in the house and could not find a container or an old palette I can store the shadows in!
Then a flash of genius led me to these unused empty Kotex Tampon Tins (they were probably around $2 CAD). They are sleek and compact, a perfect new home for my shadows.
I used double-sided tape to stick the shadows into the tin, and left a little room around the edges so the compact can easily shut.
I gotta say, I am quite proud of this little project because not only can I easily access my shadows, I also have an huge empty slot in my drawer that is calling out for more makeup! ; )
|I also depotted a few Stila and Smashbox shadows as well.|
