Eyeshadows are amazing, they are so versatile the way they can make or change any look. From understated neutral eyes to dark smokey eyes, there are endless choices of shadows and colours to choose from, and a palette is a fantastic buy. They give a choice of complementing colours right at your fingertips, which is far more practical than opening and closing lots of pots. They also usually work out cheaper than buying individuals and palettes are so much easier to transport, like going on holiday or over night stays at your boyfriend's. As a makeup artist I work with tons of different eyeshadows all the time and have far too many palettes to mention! Here I've chosen 7 great eyeshadow palettes that I think are fantastic.
1. Urban Decay Naked Palette
Cult favourite for a reason: 12 really good colours, and a mix of matte and shimmery. There's not enough matte for my liking, but the two matte are neutral enough to get away with it. Good quality high pigment shadows, so little fallout. Everything you need for a holiday but a bit too large for an over night bag. Comes with a small mirror.
