The internet is filled with useful (and some useless) makeup hacks, but this one might just be the most creative yet. If you're sick of spending extra money on eyeshadow holders, this is the one for you. One Reddit user transformed ColourPop's Yes, Please Palette into a magnetic shadow holder, and it's so easy to do. Believe it or not, in just three steps you can go from a 12 to 20 shade palette.
Thankfully, the internet has gotten over contouring with random household objects and using unmentionables as beauty sponges and is giving hacks that are actually useful. The Reddit user, who has chosen to stay anonymous, opened up the cardboard palette and transformed it into a magnetic makeup holder using a knife. Basically, you can now have your palette and hold more too.
You won't believe how simple it is, either. The user took all the shadows out of the Yes, Please Palette using a magnet, cut around the perimeter of the cardboard palette, trim, and you're finished! It's really that easy, my friends. After that, the pan will hold up to 20 ColourPop, 12 MAC, or 6 Make Up For Ever shadow pans. Of course, it's worth noting that you could do this to any cardboard palette, if you don't want to mess up your Yes, Please.
ColourPop currently sells their 12 and 24 shade magnetic palettes on their website, if you're not looking to get crafty. The two range from $7 to $10, which is pretty affordable. Not as affordable as getting 12 eyeshadow pans and a magnetic palette for $16 though. Here's the step by step Reddit tutorial, if you're looking to DIY.
1. Cut Between Slots
The Reddit user recommends a sharp knife, but scissors would work just as well.
2. Remove Inner Packaging
The inside has to go, in order for this hack to work.
3. Trim The Sides
Lastly, spend as much or little time as you'd like trimming the outsides.
4. Enjoy Your Palette
Boom! A brand new palette.
It really doesn't get much simpler than that!
