This has me questioning: 
1) Are people making their own Alcohol Activated Palettes? If so, this would be incredibly handy to know more, can anyone help?

    I've never done It myself, but I know some artists will use Skin Illustrator liquid makeup, mix up the color combination they like, and pour it into an empty palette and let it dry out.  Skin Illustrator also has a liquid concentrate that is more ideal for that purpose:  https://www.skinillustrator.com/product/liquid-concentrates/

    The same concept should work with other alcohol-activated makeups.
