Many of you might have kids or have crazy little nieces who love exploring with your makeup. When your favorite palette is made out of cardboard it might have the tendency to get dirty faster.
I found a simple solution, laminate it!
Products you will need : self adhesive laminated sheets ($6.00), scissors, a makeup palette and time (15 minutes)!
The palette that I used was the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill collaboration, the palette has quickly become one of my favorite palettes to use but I was very disappointed of the packaging. It’s gorgeous in white and silver but it didn’t come with a coat of gloss to protect it from getting dirty. If you get eyeshadow on your palette, it will stain it. My niece got her tiny little hands on it and it stayed it. I was able to take most of the stain off with makeup remover. If I hadn’t seen the stain right away it wouldn’t have been easier to remove.
Once you place one of these sheets on your palette it will stick to the palette on its own. You don’t need glue or tape for this! Once you place the sheet on the palette, you’re going to want to use your hands to place over the laminating sheets to get the air bubbles out. Once you do this you’ll have to cut the excess of the sheets off the edges of the palette.
I did this process three times. Twice on the outside of the palette, and once on the inside.
Then I tested it out.
Voila! You’ve got yourself a sleek-looking palette!
My makeup desk can get messy and the excess of the shadows seems to latch on to my desk. Spending the extra time and money to do this to the palette saves me the trouble of getting it dirty. I wish Morphe would have done this to the palette to begin with, but I’m glad I found an easy solution. I might even try placing a mirror over the message on the inside too! If I do, I will keep you guys posted!
