Happy New Year! 2017 was a challenging year by most accounts. You can learn a lot through challenge. One of the things we learned is that we can do more for you. Let us break it down --
1) If you're into makeup organization, we're the premiere makeup organization company in the world. We know this stuff, and we can help you with everything from getting your kit together and the essentials you should have to how to condense for travel. Seriously, we got Z Palettes made out of candy for goodness sake, I mean we eat, sleep, and sh&% this stuff. Did you know you can also store your brushes and hair accessories -- duck billed clips, bobby pins, etc. -- in a Z Palette Dome? Very handy for those jobs where you need to do both hair AND makeup.
2) De-potting -- De-potting's been around for a while, we like to think we brought it back into the discussion because it's a great way to get makeup out of its packaging and into a Z Palette; you can then have your favorite products all in one palette rather than carry around 5 different makeup palettes just to use four shades. You'd need a big purse to do that, especially the 88 and 100 shadow palettes. Don't do that.
But de-potting can be...scary -- you don't want to break a shadow or ruin your nice Marc Jacobs packaging. If you can get over these things, you'll save a lot of time and money (HuffPostDe-potting). Check out our post about how much dough you save simply by de-tubing your lipsticks. If you still need more nudging, we made a machine to help ease the pain of de-potting. It's called a Z Potter (aka, the "Hotplate", though technically it doesn't get hot :). Anyway, more here, where we de-pot many brands.
And what to do with all that left over packaging? Why do your good deed and recycle it of course (except the Chanel one; leave that one so your peeps know the level ;)
3) If makeup's your thing, we do that too. Yes, we know, there's no shortage of makeup in the world, and there's no shortage of makeup companies in the world. So what makes us so special? We're one of the very few companies -- perhaps the only one -- that has a two-time Emmy Award-winning makeup artist as its CEO. How's that for pedigree? And we carry eight eyeshadows, a go-to set that Zena personally curated from her 25 seasons -- and many, many different faces -- as the Head of Makeup on Dancing with the Stars. Too overwhelmed by so much makeup and so many choices? We can help. Trying to figure out the essentials of a good makeup school? We can suggest some. Wanna know set etiquette, or how to get started in the makeup industry? We got you. Want to know how to bring out those eyes, or those lips, or hide the jawline? We got the method. We can help you transform yourself through makeup.
