Anyone who knows me in person will know I wear eyeshadow and eyeliner pretty much every day.
I wrote about my favourite eyeliners a while back and it would only be fair to talk about the eyeshadow palettes I wear very frequently – and some show!
I’ll start with Urban Decay Naked 2. Now, I have 3 and Smokey, but they don’t quite measure up. The mix of earthy and gold tones, in shimmer and matte, are perfect for any occasion. Add a matte black and voilá: you cannot go wrong.
The GOSH Copenhagen palette is a matte dream: 9 super wearable shades that take you from day to night, with one massive advantage: this palette is so small that is perfect to carry around with you.
Sleek has a couple that really work for me. The iDivine eyeshadow palette in ‘A New Day’ mixes beautiful golds and browns in shimmer and matte, as well as a bit of pinkish earthy tones, for an all-round look. The browns are dark enough for a lovely smokey that is not too heavy.
The Sleek eye and cheek palette in “A midsummer’s dream” is a fabulous one to take away too; great colours for the eyes, buildable and a bonus cheek shades.
This Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2 palette is huge: 16 shades, a good mix of shimmer and matte, lots of neutrals but also a couple surprise colours to amp up a look – navy, moss and mauve, I am looking at you!
Of course, I have many other palettes and plenty individual colours too I go to when I am creating a special look, but these are really the ones I go to every day!
And they are all quite affordable, ranging from £6.99 (Makeup Revolution) to £38.50 (Naked 2).
What about you? Do you have a go to eyeshadow palette?
