MAC Eye Shadow Palettes

Hey guys! I get a lot of questions about my MAC eye shadow palettes that I use in my tutorials so I figured this would be the best way for you all to see them and how I organize them. These are all my palettes that I use on myself. No kit stuff here. (I just really love eye shadows ok? haha) I really just organize them in a way that makes sense for me. Also, not all of them are full...I kind of have a phobia of filling them up! ...because then there's no room for more! :) Gotta' have room to grow right??

How I keep the actual palettes organized:
I keep them in a drawer of my vanity with the labels on the back. These are just simple labels that you can buy in the office/school supply section of any store. They peel off super easily too, as I've had to replace them several times because they get dirty. They should stay nice for months though :)



If you have any questions about the palettes or shadows themselves (where to buy, how much they cost, MAC Pro, etc.), check out my YouTube channel. All those questions are answered in my new MAC FAQ video (coming soon!) I also show you how I have them organized in the drawer.

  7. so i'm new to depotting and thought maybe i'd give a try sometime~ so my question is, you can take the shadows out of the palettes after you've placed them right?
    sorry if the answer seems obvious to you guys :P

  19. Great pics! Thanks so much for sharing.

    In your vid, you mentioned you were gonna press some of your favorite pigments. I would love to know what method you use. I want to give it a try but I'm a bit nervous about wasting my pigments just to make a huge mess.

    Thanks! Danielle

  21. Thank you so much for posting these pics. Very helpful information here! A little off topic, but I was wondering if you could post some pics of you hair style on your blog. I have an angled bob hairstyle, but I recently got it a little shorter and want it to grow another inch or two. Your hair is very inspirational, and I am going to have to try the velcro rollers.

  22. WOW nice collection... you dont have deep truth...jaw drops LOL well looking back at the pictures blue flame looks pretty similar to it :)

  32. Thanks for this post.
    Its very helpful.
    I love greens and blues.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those palettes are amazing!! :)

    Ever thought about placing some transparent scotch tape over the labels, to prevent them from peeling off and getting dirty? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, I just love this post! I hope I'll have as many colours as you some day. Thanks for sharing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Tiffany, I agree with everyone, Im super envious, and I love the organisation!
    I was wondering how does Nehru and Meet the Fleet compare? I am looking for a navy-ish colour, I already have Nehru and I am going to get contrast, but with Nehru I find that it comes out black/navy not just navy, any thoughts? x

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi! Love your work! A tip for the labels on the back of the palettes, that you say get dirty: cover them with blank tape and you'll be set. -Maria-

  37. hi tiffany!
    im an nc20 and im trying to find a wash color that i can blend with darker colors to my browbone because i dont use highlight and im not sure what would be a good one

  46. More helpful than the MAC website!

    Thank you, you've helped me decide which shadows to buy for my palette.

  47. Hi Tiffany! (dec.19.2009)

  49. Hi there, I actually tried to go to Mac and build 1 palette with blues and purples from your collection but unfortanately most of the colors you have are discontinued. I was wondering if you were going to add an update?

    Thanks,
    Cristina :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Tiffany,
    Love your blog and your channel (i'm a subscriber). when you get some time would you please do another updated post on your palettes. I can see all the hard work you put into this one, and know it has been appreciated by so many. And judging by your favorites videos every month i'm pretty sure you've bought more in the year since this was made. haha someones gotta stimulate the economy right?! lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. Makeup is not forever, especially around sensitive bits like the eyes... Mascara has a open life of three months so how long do you keep these before you get rid of them?

    ReplyDelete
  52. For some reason, every time i try to order a palette from MAC it says either my shipping address or my billing information is wrong. Wich its not, ive had like 5 people check it and its all right. I dont understand why its not letting me order from there!? Is there anything you suggest?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have been searching you tube for the mac FAQ and can't find it. I was just wondering how I can get the palettes and then the eyeshadow pans to go in them? I was looking and from what I found mac pro is for makeup artists and what not. So was wondering if you could shed some light because I want to get those palettes and start filling them up! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You mentioned Doing an updated post on your palettes. Wondering if you were still going to? Would love to see how they have grown! = )

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thankyou so much for taking the time for showing us your palettes, its interesting to know how people store them.
    I was also wondering when you will do an update eyeshadow collection since its been well over a yeah and a half now? :)

  57. Hi Tiff, I follow you on You Tube and love to see how organised you are too, I get teased often. People say my wardrobe looks like a shop...I just like to find things quickly :)

    Ok here's my question: If you had to chose the 2 most flattering eye shadows for BLUE eyes from each category which would they be?

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks, Tiffany! I love the nudes and highlight colours palette that you have. I've been trying to replace SCANT, which is no longer sold. I'm deciding between Vanilla and Solar White.
