DIY lip palette...


Lip palettes are a great space saver for bulky lipsticks, whether you're a make up artist or simply have a bazillion lipsticks! Rather than having tons of loose lipstick tubes, you can have all your colours in one easy to use case!


Below is my (almost) finished palette. I decided to make my first palette with MUA lipsticks, as they are cheap and if it didn't work out it wouldn't have been a disaster...


Making one is really easy. Here's what you'll need:

Lipsticks (obviously!)
A big metal spoon
A candle
An empty palette (i used this one from ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400257124545?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 for £2.51)
Something to scoop the lipsticks out with (i used clean nail scissors)
And if you are anthing like me baby wipes for spills!



All you need to do is scoop out your lipstick, and place it in the spoon. Hold the spoon over your lit candle, and wait for it to melt (it takes about 30 seconds). Then pour the liquid into your palette, and wait for it to set. It's as simple as that. I know some people use a microwave instead of the candle method, but either way make sure your lipstick doesn't burn, else it will be ruined!


As you can see i wasn't very steady handed when pouring the first few colours...but im pleased with how it turned out. I will definitely be making more of these palettes, next up i'm going to make one for my purples, oranges and crazy colours!
