DIY lip palette
Over the past month or so a couple of my lip sticks snapped so I decided to make my own lip palette.
I have quite small lips so with some lip sticks it's easier to apply with a lip brush, therefore having a palette is perfect. It also means more space for other make-up if I take it away with me :)
I know people have used eyeshadow palettes and water colour boxes but I bought this pill box from Muji for £1.50 which is a bargain!
I wouldn't recommend getting it though if you want to use it as a lipstick palette. There are little gaps between the slots, which if you're not careful when pouring the lipstick, can mean a bit of a mess. I mastered a technique after the first two but it is a bit of a hassle and one that could be avoided by finding a box from somewhere else.
As you can see two of them look a bit of a mess compared to the rest, that’s just because I didn’t melt all of the lipstick at the same time. Obviously once used the palette isn’t going to look as neat.
For now I just have a piece of masking tape on the back with the lipstick names, this is just temporary until I find some nice labels or something like that.
Have you made your own lip palette? Been thinking of doing one? Let me know!
If you want any swatches just leave me a comment :)
