Making your own lipstick palette sounds way harder than it actually turned out to be. Yes, you can buy pre-made lip palettes like the ones MAC Cosmetics sells, but if you are as I was, stuck with the palettes on back order for over a month, sometimes a girl has to take action into her own hands. I even tried to buy the lip palettes from the MAC Pro store in New York when I was there in April but they were completely sold out.
These palettes may be a bit much for an everyday lipstick lover but for Stefanie and myself as freelance makeup artists this lipstick palette makes life so much easier as you aren’t spending valuable time searching for lipsticks and sanitizing each lipstick one by one, not to mention all the space you save in your makeup kit.
Step 2: get together all the lipstick you want to melt down
Step 3: cut off a 3/4″ piece of the lipstick
Step 4: hold the lipstick on the spoon over the flame until melted – caution it does get really hot
Step 5: pour liquid into the well
Step 6: continue to fill palette then let sit to solidify again
Step 7: create labels for the back of the palette with the lipstick names
30 min later you have a finished lipstick palette!
