Hi, I'm Alice Von Simon, licensed cosmetologist and owner of Secret Salon in sunny Carlsbad, California. In this video, I'm going to be teaching you how to press your own makeup. Now this is gonna help you whether you make your own makeup or whether you've just dropped your favorite pallet on the floor and you're crying over all those little pieces. The first thing you're gonna do is take a deep breath and actually make it worse. On a big one like this you can use a teaspoon or I'm just using the back of some tweezers. Do lay a cloth out because this can get pretty messy. Now, all we need to do this is a little bit of alcohol, and you can get any old kind of medical alcohol from the dollar store or the pharmacy. If you're making your own cosmetics, then you're gonna need a binding agent as well. But as this is already got one in there, I'm just gonna use the alcohol. So crush it up as fine as you can, and then you're going to add your alcohol, and you can mist it or you can pour it in, get it nice and wet. Then you're gonna mix that all together really well. You're just gonna take your pallet and drop it onto a hard surface a few times. That takes out any bubbles and gives you the beginnings of a nice smooth surface. So your next step after you've got everything settled in there is you're gonna take a coin. You want to clean that, so I've soaked it in alcohol, and you can boil it in a pan of water, and then you take either a paper towel or an old t-shirt or a bit of fabric, and you're gonna put that coin inside your paper towel, wrap it up like that, and then you're just gonna push down and really mash it into there.
