DIY: Magnetic Makeup Palette

I always wanted some magnetic makeup palettes to get all my single eyeshadows organized...
But I'm not willing to splurge on them cuz they are not cheap! :P

I decided to make my own & went online to search for ideas... I found alot of videos on YouTube and I decided to make mine out of CD cases!

Got all my materials from DIASO. All items going for SGD 2 each!
I spent about SGD 12..
And I could make 3 palettes from these materials!

My first DIY magnetic palette!
Some eyeshadows came with metal pots that are easily attracted to the magnetic sheet.
For those that doesn't, I placed a small piece of magnetic sticker so that it will be attracted to the magnetic sheet.

See I can shift and rearrange the single eyeshadows any way I want! :D

My next palette was a non-magnetic one
Because I was de-potting all the eyeshadows from a palette, I decided to fix the shadows and let them remain as they were, in the palette.

This was how thick the original palette was...
And because it was an opaque black palette, I often forget what colours I have and I end up not using them!
The brand of the palette... From my mum :)
The final look!
I bought some containers from DIASO too and reorganized my cosmetics...
My revamped Vanity Corner!

Hahaha, I have lots of photos on this post..
Anyway, hope you like it!

That's such a great idea! I don't have a lot of single eyeshadows, but it would be nice to depot palettes and have everything in the one place. Like you said, if I can't see it, I'll forget about it.

If I had more single eye shadows that would be a great idea to sort them all out! Love it.. and I must stop by the dollar store to get containers to reorganize too
(-_-;;) it's getting pretty messy lol. that was great inspiration to get me cleaning!
