What if I told you can design and create your own palette? With the perfect shadows, blushes, and your go to lip color?

This is where the empty palette comes in. Empty Palettes have been a staple not even to makeup artists out there but to the everyday girl like you and me. Who should benefit from these palettes the most? Makeup Junkies!!! Can you imagine carrying ALL that makeup everywhere!?

 Today’s post will be on today’s most popular empty palettes. This will help you decide which palette is right for you and which brand should you go with.

MAC Palette, $16
This was my first empty palette. I’ve used it for a year before giving it back to my aunt. This was one of the first high-end empty palettes out on the market. Every makeup artist will have this in their collection. This palette was matte black with the plain MAC logo on the front. You can either buy an insert for 15 eye shadows OR 6 blushes OR simply go Free-styling and have your makeup roam freely. This was a very light-weight simple on the go palette. It’s thin enough that it never takes up room while traveling or storage. – This palette has been discontinued and is no longer available.

So what’s the problem? It’s TOO light-weight. I can’t tell you how many MAC eye shadows I broke when I had this palette. And those eye shadows weren’t cheap! Even when I haven’t dropped the palette I would open it and see my eye shadows broken into a million pieces. *Heart Ache* – This palette was so depressing to me I had to return it back to my aunt. (who I originally took it from hehe)

MAC Sculpting Powder-Shadowy-REVIEW

The Ultimate Contour powder

 MAC Sculpting Powder, MAC shadowy, Contour powder, bronzer When I was younger I remember seeing my cousin putting on bronzer. I go “what is that? That powder looks too dark for you”. – She goes “No, no it’s a bronzer, its post to make you look more tan”. WELL!!! I had no idea what I was doing and applied it all over my face! – Please don’t do this- you’ll look like you applied mud all over your face.

Today’s topic is bronzing/contouring! So why do we bronze and contour? –It’s a technique we do to shape our face. Giving it dimensions. Looks FANTASTIC in photos! – My favorite part? It hides your double chin =) Bronzing VS Contouring= Bronzing just warms up the face giving you color and that summer tan glow like the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Contouring is more detailed sculpting your face making it look thinner looking like the Kardashians.
