How to revive a dry Mac Paint Pot

Don't you just hate it when your creamy makeup product dries up long before you finish with it?

Well the other day I opened up one of my favourite creamy eye bases, in this case Macs paint pot in Constructivist and it was so dry that it looked like it had been basking in the sun! What sun? I hear you ask...exactly its 10 degrees and rainy!

Anyway I had at least half of the product left in the pot and didn't really want to waste it so I did a little research and found a way to revive it ...woo hoo!

Here is a little tutorial below and I hope it helps someone else.

  • Step 1 - Line up the accused dried out paint pot
  • Step 2 -  List of items needed: The paint pot, something to mix it with (I used a metal cuticle stick) and a blowdryer
  • Step 3 - Heat up the paint pot using your blowdryer, the heat will help to soften up the product, release its natural oils and make it easier to mix up - I heated it for about 2 minutes. 
  • Step 4 - Break up and mix the contents of the paint pot using your mixing tool - this took about 2 minutes as well
  • Step 5 - Smooth and press the contents back into the pot (I used my fingers for this - make sure its clean if you do this, you don't want any nasty germs)
  • Step 6 - Smear some of it on your eyes and do a little dance at your newly revived and softened paint pot (Ok fine this step is optional :-)

Has this happened to you before? Do you have any other tips for reviving your makeup? Let me know in the comments below
