Our commonly used colors may be distributed in different eyeshadow palettes. In order to avoid opening several eyeshadow palettes in makeup, we can put our favorite shades in one box. This small handmade eyeshadow box can greatly save our makeup time. If you want to know how we can use a plastic box and an iron box to make an eyeshadow palette, just keep reading!

Iron Box
Step 1 Find a suitable size iron box and take out the small pieces of eyeshadow from the palette.
Since each eyeshadow in the general palette is carried on a small iron plate. You can take it out with a tweezer. Remember to be patient and pry open a little bit, as the eyeshadow is easy to be damaged if you use too much force. For some eyeshadows without iron plates, you need to scrape them out, then put them into a plate, and use tools to flatten and compact the powder.

The shades of some eyeshadow palettes are very sticky, so it is easy to break if it is hard buttoned. You can bake it on iron or plywood (remember to put a piece of paper under it when baking, oil paper is the best). Whether you are breaking the plate or taking the eyeshadow out, remember to put on gloves. Don’t do it with your naked hand! Because the heat is very high, it is easy to burn your hands. You can use an acne needle to pick them out.

Step 2 Cut out a soft magnet that fits in the box
The size of the magnet depends on the size of the box. If it can fit well into the iron box, that’s the best. The magnet plays the role of a stick so that the small iron block can be attracted to it. Use an alcohol pad to wipe the soft magnet as well as the eyeshadow that has just been removed from the palette. When the alcohol evaporates, stick the soft magnet into the eyeshadow box.

Step 3 Put all kinds of eyeshadow blocks into the iron box
It is recommended that you first list the size of each small eyeshadow plate on the paper, and use a ruler to draw the size of eyeshadow blocks so that you can make them fit the box best. Then put the eyeshadows into the iron box and you are done!
