Palette Modification

So I was wanting a few more colors, but I loved my little Cheap Joe’s Travel Palette so much that I didn’t want to part with it. The space where the travel brush goes seemed like it might accommodate some extra half pans, but I thought it was too good to be true! It wasn’t… 6 half pans fit perfectly!! Taking my palette up to 18, still in the wonderfully tiny travel-sized tin (with a little double-sided tape to hold them in place). Now I guess I just need to buy the new colors!

      Yeah… it was a totally cool discovery! Even though I rarely use more than a handful of colors! Hehe😊 But it’s nice to know they’re there just in case I need them! Some of the inexpensive travel palettes have removeable half pans as well so you could steal from those. Jessica Seacrest is the resident expert on supplies though. Leave a message on one of her reviews here if you want some suggestions! 😉
