Creating my Perfect Palette with ZPalette, ColourPop & Makeup Geek

Even though I love my Sweet Peach, Shade & Light and In Bloom palettes, my very favourite and most used is the one I created myself thanks to Makeup Geek, ColourPop and ZPalette. What I love about my trusty ZPalette is that it allows me to mix and match my favourite shades, finishes and brands to create a fully customisable palette specifically for me – every girl’s…
