After Christmas, while shopping at my local Big Lots I came across beautiful pallets from E.L.F. for 50% off! I couldn’t believe the 12 highly pigmented shadows were only $2.50 each. If you don’t have a Big Lots near you try Ross, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx (check the beauty section). You can also always find these types of deals direct from eyeslipsface.com.
In keeping with our Dollface core value #6 “Do More With Less”, I decided to try and make my very own Inglot Freedom Palette using E.L.F. shadows. Inglot’s amazing palette is ideal for makeup lovers to professional artists who want to organize their shades or create custom palettes for specific clientele. The only drawback is the almost $400 investment! The empty palette for 40 shadows is $39 and each shadow is $8. OUCH! Today I’m going to show you how I created my custom 45 eye shadow palette for $20!
The next item I needed was an empty palette. The one I used is from Make Up For Ever, which can hold 24 MUFE or 45 MAC sized shadows. This beast only cost $10 but it difficult to find but always available at the MUFE boutiques and via phone orders. The other empty palette worth mentioning are Z Palettes, which have a see through top and are very convenient. Their cases are between $20-25 and can hold 20 round MAC sized shadows.
Please Note: If the shadow pans are not metal they will not stay in place. You may need to add the additional step of adding metal sticker pans to the back of your shadow which can be found on Amazon.
