Favourites 18

Bringing together complementary tones, shades and textures, a hard-working palette – be it for the face, eyes or lips – is a true beauty investment. But with so many on the shelves, where to start? We’ve rounded up ten cult palettes to supercharge your look…

Pro Lipstick Palette, £10 | Freedom

Not having the right lipstick bullet to hand is the make-up equivalent of having nothing to wear – fortunately, this pro set from make-up artist-approved Freedom eliminates the struggle. Wear the 24 lip shades, including eight matte and 16 sheer, alone or custom blend your own shade for the perfect pout.  

Naked Heat Palette, £39.50 | Urban Decay

Urban Decay’s Naked collection is a veritable bestseller – one palette sells every five seconds worldwide. The brand’s latest 12-shadow tray is Naked Heat. Unlike the other Naked palettes, which focus more on neutrals, this new-kid-on-the-block features everything from super-smooth red-brown matte and glimmering copper to deep bronze.

Ultimate Palette, £16 | NYX

NYX’s Ultimate Shadow Palettes are proof that top-quality beauty needn’t cost the earth. This Warm Neutrals version is the ideal array of earthy and sandy hues for olive skin types. Use the lighter caramel, biscuit and taupe shades to add a touch of daytime polish or combine with the deeper earthy shades for an evening look.

Powder Contour Palette, £32.99 | Iconic London

Whether you’re a contouring queen or total beginner, Iconic London has your back. The blendable, silky powders – in six customisable shades – highlight, lift and sculpt the face. We defy you not to be impressed with the long-lasting, buildable coverage.

Chocolate Bar Palette, £39 | Too Faced

Too Faced's bestselling palette contains 16 shadows packed with real cocoa powder for an antioxidant skincare hit. The clever mix of matte and subtle metallic shades can be used on lids, creases and as a liner on the top or bottom lashes. Also keep an eye out for Too Faced’s recently launched Sweet Peach palette, £39, a gorgeous blend of peachy pinks, bronzes and pops of purple.

Textured Shadows Palette, £56 | Huda Beauty

The brainchild of beauty guru and entrepreneur Huda Kattan, this luxe palette was one of the most anticipated launches in beauty history. A stunning blend of highly-saturated mattes, chrome-pressed pearls and 3D metal shadows, the powders are easily buildable and surprisingly easy to wear, whether you’re after a bold metallic or smoky look.  

Ambient Lighting Palette, £59 | Hourglass

This clever complexion perfector has your highlighting needs covered. Akin to a personal lighting system, these powders blur, colour correct and highlight where needed for a lit-from-within glow. Unlike traditional powders which merely cloak imperfections, this trio use photo-luminescent technology to filter out harsh light and refine the complexion. Worth every penny.

NARSissist Unfiltered II Cheek Palette, £45 | NARS

Beauty junkies rave about NARS colour palettes and this bestselling blush kit is no exception. Showcasing a mix of matte and shimmer shades from soft pink to gold, the powders deliver a sweep of sheer, buildable colour. Use to sculpt, shape and add radiance to light and medium complexions.

Instant Look In A Palette, £49 | Charlotte Tilbury

Available in three different colour-ways, Charlotte Tilbury’s palettes create a fresh-faced look on-the-go. Each one contains seven radiance-boosting powders to blush, brighten and enhance your way to groomed perfection. Team with your usual foundation, a flick of eyeliner and a flutter of mascara – we guarantee the whole process takes no more than five minutes.

Modern Renaissance Palette, £41 | Anastasia Beverly Hills

A favourite among beauty editors and bloggers, this present-day take on Renaissance colours guarantees endless make-up possibilities. All 14 shades – from neutral to berry tones – are high-pigment and crease-resistant to withstand whatever the day (or night) throws at you. The palette also comes with a dual-ended soft bristle brush for seamless application.
