Make Your Own Palette Part 2



So I made another palette, this time it was my pressed blushes that have been swarming around in my drawer, I found it's a pain if I wanna travel with them as they have to be stacked and eat up so much room.

If you remember I did a post on how I made my own palette out of DVD case here, it's actually the same concept, except I made it prettier & cleaner LOL Most of my blushes (other than my mineral blushes, which up to this point are uncountable -_-' so I gave up.) are La Femme. They're super pigmented & gorgeous. Here's the original packaging


Here's after I depotted & put them into the DVD case along with other blushes


Isn't it a cool peek-a-boo picture from the cover? lol


I finally decorated the palettes, using a magazine articles about COCO CHANEL,
I really like the retro touch in it


So here are the MIY Palette, a good way to save some $$ and efficient for travelling & storing.

This is a GREAT idea!! And I love how nicely you did it all. I probably wouldn't be able to stand depotting my stuff though and putting it on DVD cases like that. I'm too obsessive with how it looks. :(

that looks super cool! I esp liked how you arranged the blushes in a circle surrouding the cool looking one in the middle. and nice covers, looks vintage!
