MAC Custom Palette

MAC Custom Palette

Have you ever bought one of those giant palettes from Sephora, only to end up using just a few of the colors? I have definitely made that mistake. MAC’s custom palettes allow you to choose exactly which products and shades you want. I customized my own palette at the MAC store on Michigan Avenue with their new Regional Makeup Artist, John Naughton. Learn about my experience and check out my finished palette.

One of the artists at the store applied different eye shadows on me so I could choose the perfect ones for my palette. I loved learning how to apply the shadows I would take home.

I chose six shadows, two bronzing powders, and two lip/cheek/eye creams. I like pink shades for my eyes and peach tones for my lips and cheeks. I also got to try some other products including the Prep + Prime mist which I love to spray on before foundation.


There are so many choices to put in your palette. You can also choose to get more eyeshadows instead of powders and vice versa.

  • You know, a custom palette has never crossed my mind, but I really should look into it. It’s like a lightbulb just went off. I have so many palettes where I only use a few colors.

    • Custom palettes are a game changer! xo

    Do you have the names of the colors in this palette? I would love to build one of my own! Thank you!
