My first D.I.Y Eye Shadow Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 20 - 2010

Check out my first homemade palette!

Ignore the 3 on the right, I totally cheated and shoved 3 MAC pans in there for the photo whilst my last 3 pigments were drying.

The palette is mostly made up from The She Space pigments, I find that one full size pigment fills a pan fairly nicely.  I’ve also sneaked in a BarryM Dazzle Dust and a few Elemental Beauty shadows too!

What ya reckon?  Any of you ladies press your own loose eye shadows?  Any interest in a pictorial on my pigment pressing methods?

    Ok, Mr wordpress is not happy with my comment because it “seems a bit spammy”, so I leave the 15 kisses for myself then, and just give you one :P
    Yes, would love a pictorial tutorial on this and already excited like a flee in a shaggy dog to read it. But I shall hide my excitement in case Mr WordPress gets it the wrong way :P

  22. I would love to learn about your pigment pressing methods. I don’t like loose powders because I tend to spill them all over the place.

    awesome D.I.Y. idea… I would have thought this was all MAC e/s because it’s so neat and very impressive. I have done this method to some of my pigments but they never come out this neat.
