Let’s talk Make-up.

So… I did a thing. What exactly is that thing, you might ask? Well, I discovered a place on the internet where you can create your own eye shadow palette and hell yes I did! Meet my little A6 travel palette! of course titled after my blog Lets Go Somewhere Else. Would you expect any less? haha.

I put it together at around 3am at Christmas time and I was waiting by the letter box almost every day since but it’s arrived and here we are!

All the shades are based on exactly what I wear on a daily basis so they might look a little odd to you but I made it with just me in mind and completely for fun. I am not the next makeup guru that’s for sure, but boy did I try for this post!!

The Shades

The shades are all based on places in Europe where I’ve been and the colours remind me of. I picked the colours first (obviously) then named them.

So we have from the top left: Hallstatt, Strasbourg, Bruges, Reykjavik, Bergen and Vienna.

All shades apart from Reykjavik and Bergen are matte. Bergen is a shimmer and Reykjavik is a glitter.

The Design

All the photos were taken by me when I went to Hallstatt  and the image above is the back of the palette.

Originally when I ordered it, I was disappointed in the size until my friends reminded me that duh.. it’s a travel palette and it’s now travel size.

Honestly I had a lot of fun shooting this! I can confirm I am finding confetti every where still to this day. I am typically not really big on make up, but I focus on my eyes a lot on a daily basis and here we are!

If you are interested in buying this, please let me know! However, please remember that this is just for fun and I am no James Charles!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little one off post! I used an external company to create this so I didn’t just suddenly become an elf and make it myself. Let me know what you think! 🙂

    This concept is genius! Travel is the perfect time to whittle down to just the essentials!

  5. This looks very pretty. Anyone who loves makeup and travel would definitely appreciate this in her collection.

  6. This is soooo much fun! I love make up already. But, I had no idea that they did anything like this. And basing it off places you have traveled is a brilliant idea. BRAVO!
