DIY with The Fab Miss B: Magnetic Make-up Palate

I recently saw an add for a magnetic make-up palate and it struck me as a fun DIY to attempt.
Here's how I did it.

You will need:

Makeup in containers- I used eyeshadows.
Something to pry the pans loose with- either a screwdriver, or a finer tool like a pocket knife blade.
A container to put the loose pans in- I used a Cavallini & Co. Sticker box
A hot glue gun

First, pry the make up pans loose from their containers. It may take several tries to loosen them.

Pull them out.
Arrange them into a pleasing pattern. (Don't they look cooler already? It reminds me of a painting!)

Assemble the pans into a pleasing pattern in the tin.

Use a bit of hot glue to adhere them in place. (Since both the tin and the pan are metal, you can move them around if you'd like later.)

I added a few shadow applicators from the drugstore.

Ta da! I love how this has lightened the load in my make up bag. Plus, now I can see the whole spectrum of color I have to work with when I put on my makeup in the morning. What fun! Be sure to let me know how your palate turns out.

love it. What do you do when the make up tin runs out?

Can it be replaced easily?

Hi Very Crafty Mama-

Not sure I understand your question. Do you mean when the new palate fills up? (In this case, I'd find a new sticker tin to fill up!) Or when you've used up all the product in the pan? (In this case, just pop out the used up pan and put something new in it's place.)

Happy DIYing!

You could also glue a little magnet to the bottom of the pans of make-up and easily remove them when you've used up a pan. Cute tin!
