My MAC Quad

EVERYDAY NEUTRALS

Yay for more neutrals and I'm not even bored yet. I wanted a palette that was more compact and would use all of the shades. I find that I don't use all of the shades in any of my Naked palettes or other neutral palettes I have. It feels like a waste.

I'm the type who likes to plan things early, be organised otherwise I'd be stuck in the store for hours being indecisive. It also helps me come to a decision which I tend to stick to most of the time. I did some research, looking at many swatches for many neutral shades and have decided on choosing Era (all over lid shade), Wedge (transitional), Espresso (eyebrows and lid) and Embark (crease, lower lash line, outer corner), one satin and three matte shadows. I think I've got all my bases covered for creating a day as well as a night time smokey look.

I had assembled the palette together once I got home, like a kid with a new toy to play with. I think my ultimate question right now is how to get the eyeshadows out if I want to swap pans? This should be fun. I want to fill up a 15 pan palette now. Too many shades I want.

Have you customised any palettes (MAC or not)?

  1. Such a great selection of neutral shades here and I love that you can use one for your brows too! I have a 15 pan but haven't completely filled it up yet, I'm more into my Urban Decay and Marc Jacobs eye shadows at the moment. For MAC I love Ploof, Orb (FAB highlight shade thats matte) and All That Glitters xxxx

  26. i think a customised palette is really a good idea as we wouldn't have the annoying moment when we realised that there's a particular colour in the palette that we'll never ever use. nice choice of colours there for your own palette!
