Most beauty lovers have a selection of eyeshadow palettes that they absolutely love. I’m no exception and had a drawer full. When I actually thought about it, there were eyeshadow palettes in my collection that I just didn’t use, or I’d just pick out one shade. So a bag of stuff has gone to a couple of my friends, who can give everything some much needed love.
These are the 5 eyeshadow palettes that I reach for time and time again, whatever my mood, no matter what season it is and whatever the occasion.
I mean, just look at this palette, it’s an absolute dream. The velvety packaging is simply divine and that’s before you even get inside. There’s 14 stunning shades ranging from neutral to berry tones, my favourite two are Antique Bronze and Warm Taupe. The powders are soft and creamy, and they blend together beautifully. All the colours seem perfect for anytime of the year and will take you from day to night in a flash. Even the brush that comes with this palette has wonderfully soft bristles so it’s actually pretty good for blending.
Took me a while to dig this out from my drawer and start using it, by the time I had, everyone and their Auntie had posted about it. The shades are absolutely stunning, I’ve been able to create so many different looks as it’s one of those eyeshadow palettes that’s not only for a summer bronzed look, these colours look amazing all year round. I flippin love this eyeshadow palette, especially the shades Lumbre, Layenne and En Fuego.
This has been one of my go-to eyeshadow palettes for as long as I can remember. It comes with 12 beautiful golden, neutral toned shades, including matte, satin and shimmer. Each eyeshadow has a silky texture which blends in effortlessly, the shades are super pigmented and have amazing staying power. I apply Naked all over my lid, Smog in the crease, I’ll add Darkhorse in the outer corners, blending it up into the crease and along my lower lash line. Finishing with Sidecar on the inner part of my eyelid and Virgin right in the inner corner. If I’m in a rush, Ill go for a more natural look and sweep the shade Toasted across the whole of my lid.
Yes, I was drawn to it because it had Chocolate in the name, but honestly, just look at those shades. They are gorgeous! It’s another one of those palettes that will see me from day to night, I’ve been able to create loads of different looks, whatever the occasion and the eyehadows blend in beautifully. Believe me when I tell you it smells amazing too, just like the perfect hot chocolate.
This palette is probably my absolute favourite. I mean, isn’t it stunning? A dream came true when a friend of mine travelled to America and bought this beauty back for me. I’ve used just about every single shade. There are 12 soft creamy powders in a mix of gorgeous matte and shimmer shades. They blend in beautifully without any fall out. The darker shades are perfect to add a smokey eye to any evening makeup look.
All of these eyeshadow palettes work really well with anyone of my favourite lip colours.
