Where Have I Been?

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been gone for so long.  It is for good reason, I promise!  First thing, I graduated from college!  That is the most important and exciting thing that has happened to me.  After I graduated, I started a new job.  That did not end well.  Basically, my job was going door to door trying to sell people U-verse.  I enjoyed it, but ended up quitting because it was costing me to much money in gas.  After that, I went through a staffing agency and got a job through there, but was let go, even though their reason for letting me go was false.  So now all I have been doing is babysitting.  However, I start a new job in a couple weeks, and I am super excited about it!  Right now, I feel like everything is falling into place.  With that being said, I am working on new posts, and planning everything out for this blog.  I really want to keep up with this blog, and the best way is to have it happen is to plan.  If you have any suggestions for me, leave me a comment,  and I will try my hardest to do so.



De-potting Concealer

Hi Everyone!

Today I am going to talk about how to de-pot stick concealer.  You can do this with any kind of product, but I did my concealer, since it was broken.  The concealer I used is the E.L.F. stick concealer.  Some how it got smashed into the top, and the remainder broke and got stuck inside the tube.

The whole process is super easy.  All you need is:

  • Concealer
  • Water
  • Tea Kettle/Small Pot
  • Small container to pour concealer in


The steps are simple.

  1. Boil your water.  The water does not need to come to a complete boil, but needs to be hot enough to penetrate through the outside of the packaging.
  2. Pour the water into a small cup and put the concealer in the water.  I let it sit for about five minutes, and then replaced the water.  I did this three times, but you may need to do it more or less, depending on the product.
  3. Pour the concealer into the container.  I used a container that I got a sample in, but you can buy empty containers like this at Sally’s or another beauty supply store.  If needed, take either a concealer brush or small cosmetic spatula to get the remainder.  When you are finished, it should look like this.


Now you’re done!! Sorry about the poor camera quality.  Right now I am using a small point and shoot camera, and it does not shoot up close at all, but I am trying to upgrade to a better camera.  Sorry I have not posted in such a long time, I have an upcoming post on where I have been, and my plans for this blog.
