As a professional makeup artist, we carry a lot of products around with us. The clients see us coming with our big wheelie’s full of goodies and products that help with all of our beauty tricks. I am constantly trying to get my kit to be efficient as I fly with it as a carry on, no way is this girl going to check a bag and worry the entire flight, that I will arrive for the job without a bag of goodies.
I came across Z Palette at a trade show and thought this could be something in my quest for less containers. Of everything my eye shadows are taking over, tons of MAC containers. Z Palette is a customizable makeup palette that is magnetized on the bottom of the rectangular container and a clear window on top. You can take apart your makeup containers, de-pot, and then put them into a palette. There are several sizes and of course styles, I went for the leopard print.
I took home my palette’s and went to work on depotting and mixing the brands of products to make neat palettes. The powders were very exciting as now I have all of the shades in one easy palette and when I am on a job, no more individual containers. However, even better is the eye shadow’s. I was able to place 20 eye shadows both circular and square in one palette. First goal met, less containers and more efficient.
The second and final test, going thru TSA from Miami to DC roundtrip with my cosmetic wheelie and Z palette’s in tow. Placed them in the container and thru they went with not one question. I really am a huge fan and purchased a small one for my personal makeup, easy to put in a purse.
If you have not heard of them, you should definitely give it a look, I think that you will find it can de-clutter your makeup bag.
