A few of my friends have been buying Mac Pro Palettes recently and asked me how to best depot the Mac eyeshadows they already have so I have written this pictorial tutorial as a guide. I have 3 of the 15 pan size Mac Pro Palettes and 2 of the smaller 4 pan palettes so I have done a lot of depotting and this method will have you depotting each shadow in just a couple of minutes.
I have purchased the inserts to hold the eyeshadows in all of my palettes but I know some people prefer just to place the shadows on the magnetic base without the inserts. Both is fine and this method works for both. Some people glue the pans into the palette-I prefer not to do this because if you want to switch the shadows around or when you finish a shadow it's difficult to remove the pan if glued in.
Once you have your palette you can buy already depotted shadows from any Mac counter that just pop directly into your palette (you do not have to add the magnet, MAc has already magnetized the pan)
Mac also do a blusher insert for the palettes.
Please do be careful as not all Mac eyeshadows and blushers can be depotted as some are not housed in the metal pan inside the compact (for example Warm Soul mineralize blush is not in a pan as it is a baked formula).
So here's my tutorial-please feel free to ask any questions of anything that is unclear!
I hope you found this tutorial useful and happy depotting!
