I had a lot of lipsticks that were either broken or not useable without a lip brush, so I decided to melt them down! It’s inexpensive, saves space, and saves product!
Container (empty eyeshadow palette, pill organizer, etc.)
*Target sells elf brand empty customizable eyeshadow palettes for $1! They’re perfect for this project!*
1. Spoon out remaining product from lipstick tubes and hold over burning candle.
2. Let the lipstick melt on the spoon until it is completely liquified.
3. Pour product into the empty pan, let it cool and repeat in other compartments!
*Don’t forget to label the colors!
PS! If you’re using M.A.C lipsticks don’t forget to save your containers and bring 6 to the store to get a free product!
These can be used for more than makeup! I have one for nail polish too!
What you’ll need:
Desk Organizer (This one is from Target’s dollar section)
Matte finish spray paint
Duck brand printed duct tape
Optional: Pencil Cup
1. Find a good tiered desk organizer. I got this one at target for $2.50! It was low quality plastic so I decided to jazz it up.
2. Grab some spray paint! Lay down some newspaper and get to business! One coat worked for me.
3. Let it dry. Obvs…
4. Decorate with duct tape! I just taped the top half of this one.
5. Start organizing your makeup! This organizer was perfect for everything I had.
6. I bought a pencil organizer from Dollar Tree and stuck it in the top pocket.
Give your hair a pop of color without too much damage.
1 packet of Loreal Quick Blue Bleach
2 oz. 40 volume creme developer (dyed or dark hair) 30 Vol. (brown virgin hair) 20 Vol. Dirty Blonde
1 jar of your choice Manic Panic semi-permanent haircolor
This can be done on previously colored hair, but will be more damaging.
If your hair is already blonde, skip the bleaching part.
1. Section your hair off and figure out where you want your color. For a peek-a-boo effect on layered hair; take a section from your longest lower layer.
2. Mix bleach and developer.
3. Brush on bleach mixture to section of hair. Make sure the whole section is thoroughly saturated. Leave on for 10 minutes.
Check your hair and see how much it has lightened. If it is orange or has not lightened leave it on until it is at least a golden blonde. Keep checking the strand and use good judgement to wash it out. Do not leave bleach on for more than 40 minutes.
If the lightest it gets is a brassy orange, choose a red or dark color dye.
4. Rinse bleach, and deeply condition the hair strip. It is best to use a protein treatment or a conditioning masque.
5. Rinse bleaching brush out, and towel dry hair. Load brush with Manic Panic and heavily coat bleached hair with color.
6. Put a cap on or aluminum foil and leave on for as long as possible. At least 30 minutes but up to 8 hours. (You can sleep in it) I leave mine on for 2 hours. The longer you leave it on the more intense, and longer lasting your color will be. Adding heat (with a blow dryer) also intensifies the effect.
7. Rinse out (this is messy) Shampoo and condition.
8. Blow dry and style, and you’re done!
