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 😛
    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 😛


  8. I am joining the throngs of those who are eager to learn how this was done – please tell us your secrets!

  12. Anitacska says:

    I’d love to know everything about pressing pigments as I havew about 20 pigments, but hardly ever get around to using them. Also what do you need, where did you buy all the stuff you need, etc., etc. :)

  13. Lillian says:

    Wow, it looks really professional! Well done! I keep meaning to press pigments but never get around to it.

  14. That looks awesome. I for one would love a tutorial! =)

  18. RaeRae says:

    I’ve been considering pressing my Barry M dazzle dusts recently, so would love to see how you did it/where you got your supplies from!

    Your pallette looks great! :)

  20. Sylvie says:

    Amazing! I too feel that my life remains incomplete without a tutorial of how you did this gorgeous thing xx

  21. What a yummy-looking palette!!!

  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.

  23. Sarah says:

    OK OK – how on earth did you get Dazzle Dusts to press? I’ve tried pressing mine but they just don’t stick together. Tell me (and everyone else) your secrets.

  24. Jules says:

    OOOOH! I would like to create my own mini palette with pressing pigments.. the lovely Leanne freeeeezey gifted me with some fabulous little pigment samples and I’m so clumsy and often faff around with ’em – would love a pictorial guide 😉 *hint hint* 😛 xxx

  25. ndoodles says:

    Woo hoo, That’s awesome :) I love all the colors. That palette is like something I would totally make for myself.

  26. Arianne says:

    Very nicely done. Mine always comes out so amateurish. Tutorial please! :)

  27. styleezta says:

    That PALETTE looks awesome! I made my first MAC palette last year and I Love it! BTW, any chance there are Bohemian Palette’s at your local Superdrug. Mine keep running out here in Poole. LMK and maybe I can pay you for them!! :)

  28. kim says:

    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.

  29. Just wondering if you used alcohol or a mineral makeup pressing medium?

  30. Lizzard says:

    omg this is sooo amazing! please please do a tutorial with amazing photos! (which i’m sure you will cuz you always take the most beautiful precise photographs *smiles*)

  31. Julia says:

    yes, definitely interested in your pigment pressing method! :)
