Step 1: Bend back the edges of the cardboard palette that you'd like to de-pot.
Step 2: Peel off the top layer of cardboard surrounding the shadows to expose the eye shadow pans.
Step 3. Using a small metal spatula, carefully separate the pan from the cardboard behind it. If needed, a few drops of rubbing alcohol around the outer edges of the pan will help dissolve stubborn glue.
Step 4: Remove the pan, and continue with the rest of the eye shadows.
Step 5: Peel the paper backing from the metal stickers included with your Z Palette, and affix to the back of the eye shadow pan.
Step 6: Label the shade name on the metal sticker. This will make shade reference easy now that the eye shadow has been removed from its original packaging.
Step 7: Pop the eye shadow into your Z Palette and customize however you'd like!
As always, practice *and a little patience* makes perfect! Happy de-potting!
