Project: Swatch Book

Since I've started this makeup budget I've been thinking about making a swatch book for my eyeshadows. Why eyeshadows? because they're my downfall lol. Lipsticks, glosses, and blushes I can control myself in those areas but eyeshadows are my weakspot. Including pigments but pigments don't get released as frequently as eyeshadows. So I started a swatch book and left it alone for some time because school happens. Now its summer and its one of my goals to finish it up. I hope this would help me find dupes for new released colors and also to catalogue the colors I already have. In going through my eyeshadows I can't believe I purchased eyeshadows that I already have in palettes! It's the most annoying thing ever.

This is what I have so far! (actually I have 5 pages of swatches so far and these are just my Christmas eyeshadow palettes) My swatch book includes a swatch of color, name of product, description, collection, finish, and color family. The swatch is done on watercolor paper which I sized and cut out to fit in the column where swatches are to be.
