It's convenient to see a range of blush colors so I started using palettes. But I disliked when they were flush next to each other so that my cheek brush could get into more than one pan...or when they moved around if I left spaces between. So, I used my son's old Lego to create barriers. I rubber cemented bricks and flat tiles between pans and it works well! Easy to reorganize, too, as the rubber cement just peels off. This is an empty MAC palette but I suppose other palettes could be used as well.

Thanks, Jeanette, for your kind acknowledgement. I sometimes wonder if people will think my ideas are odd, so I hesitate, but the barriers work so well, I wanted to share. This palette is especially pretty as the Lego match the case perfectly. I used flat tiles over bricks (2 layers) so the barrier surface is flat and a bit higher than pans. Sometimes I use flat tiles on their sides, depending on spacing. Easy to wipe and keep clean. BTW, individual tiles can be purchased at Lego stores or online, which I did as I didn't have enough flat tiles.

It really looks so neat, Kay. When I started to read I imagined big Lego pieces in many colours, but this looks very clean and neat!
