Sometimes, buying an extensive eyeshadow palette means reaching time and again for only some favourite shades that you adore, while leaving the rest untouched.
The great news is that you don’t have to dream about a palette that houses only the shades you’ll use, because you can actually make your own. Customisable makeup palettes are compacts that let you fit the cosmetics that you want inside, including eyeshadows, blushes, and bronzers.
With a customisable makeup palette, you’ll be able to bring all your essentials together in one place or have fun mixing and matching a myriad of alluring shades.
Read on, because we share 10 customisable makeup palettes that let you have the shades you love most within reach!
Customise a makeup palette in Singapore
Muji Makeup Palette
Our favourite Japanese lifestyle brand has everything from food to furniture, and… surprise, even makeup!
So many of Muji’s products make it easier for you to get organised, so it’s no surprise we found a refillable, customisable makeup palette in the store.
Muji’s makeup palette is a minimalistic, slim case that lets you put in the powders that you love the most. You get to create a makeup palette that houses whatever you like – a pressed powder foundation and sponge, or one with a soft blush, several eyeshadow shades, and brushes. It’s up to you.

Adept Cosmetics The Adept Palette
Makeup junkies, if you need a palette to fit an arsenal of depotted eyeshadows, blushes, and bronzers that you just can’t do without, then Adept Cosmetics’ The Adept Palette is the one for you.
The Adept Palette is a huge makeup palette that can hold over 100 standard size, round eyeshadow pans, over 95 26.7mm round pans, and so forth.
The palette opens up so that you can attach your eyeshadow pans to the “floor” and “ceiling” of the palette; in the middle, there’s a clear divider so that the powders won’t blend or get dirtied when you close the palette.
While Adept Cosmetics doesn’t retail their own single eyeshadow pans, you’re free to organise the cosmetics from your favourite brands all in one place, as long as the pans are made with a magnetic metal.
A makeup lover’s dream palette, The Adept Palette lets you finally customise a myriad of shades – no holding back!
Get Adept Cosmetics The Adept Palette for S$52.49 on Amazon.
Salt New York The Palette
Salt New York is a brand that focuses on creating sustainable beauty products – and how do they do that? With their iconic refillable, customisable palette. It’s called The Palette and it comes in two sizes: large and mini.
If you’re looking for readily-curated makeup palettes, you won’t find them at Salt New York, because this beauty brand only sells refills that are meant to be housed in the one palette that they have, The Palette.
The Large Palette can fit up to eight pans of Crème Tint Pro, with room for a small brush or tool, and The Mini Palette can hold up to four pans of Crème Tint Pro.
And, when we say Crème Tint Pro, we’re referring to their blush, bronze cream tint formulas, skin balms, and more, that you can mix and match in your palette.
Unfortunately, Salt New York doesn’t currently ship to Singapore due to the pandemic, but you can keep an eye out for updates on their website, just like we’re doing.
