7 Great Eyeshadow Palettes ...


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

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.2

Comes with a small mirror.

2. Top Shop Smokey Eye Palette

Top Shop Smokey Eye Palette

These great eyeshadow palettes have everything you need for a brown (Tawny) or darker (Smouldering) smokey eye.

Both palettes have 4 excellent colour choices and are a great size, small and cheap enough to have both!

3. Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad

Clinique has massively underrated palettes.

Excellent pigmentation, wonderful to blend, great choice of colours, plus cheap and small enough to have more than one...

a really fantastic product.

Choose Teddy Bear for a matte smokey eye or Choc-latte for a more shimmer intense look.

Polar bear is a favourite for a cooler grey toned smokey eye.
