Multi-Purpose Make-Up Palettes We Love

Multi-Purpose Make-Up Palettes We Love

Multi-purpose make-up palettes won’t just streamline your beauty routine or make space in your kit, they also offer a concise edit of tones and textures, allowing you to experiment with ease. Practical and portable, the latest iterations promise great quality, versatile shades and smooth formulas, too, for seamless application every time. Here are some of our favourites…



Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette, £49

This neutral palette has become a firm favourite among A-listers – notably Poppy Delevingne who used it to create her wedding day look. Housing seven radiance-enhancing, colour-correcting powders, it suits all skin tones, while the bronzer, highlighter and subtle eyeshadows work to brighten and contour subtly. Great for novices, each shadow is named and labelled to take the guesswork out of application, while the smooth textures make for a seamless blend. No wonder it remains a brand bestseller.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Brow Palette, £90

While the name suggests this is only for use on your brows, it’s incredibly versatile – making it a well-kept secret among industry insiders. Make-up artist Camilla Hewitt swears by it. Featuring all 11 shades of the brand’s Brow Powder Duo, it caters to every hair colour and skin tone. What’s more, the dual-colour pans can be combined to produce a custom-made tone for both the brows and eyelids. You can also use the shadows to sculpt and define your cheeks, too. A true one-stop-shop.

Chanel Palette Essentielle, Conceal – Highlight – Colour Palette, £44.20

Multi-purpose palettes don’t get much chicer than this – offering a concealer, highlighter, lip and cheek colour, it’s ideal for those who like their make-up on the minimal side. Regularly spied in make-up artist’s kits, the concealer has a creamy, balm-like consistency that’s easy to layer, while the highlighter melts into the skin for instant luminosity. As for the pretty colour, use a smattering to bring a wash of pink to both the lips and cheeks – it’s lightweight, so it gives more of a tint than full-on pigment. It’s brilliant for evening touch-ups, too. Use your fingers or a brush for application, as both will work just as well.

Sleek MakeUP Cream Contour Kit, £7.33 (was £10.99)

You’d be hard pushed to find a negative review of this contour kit. Brimming with creamy highlighters and four contour shades, it’s a go-to among beauty experts for defining, sculpting and brightening the skin. The velvet-y formulas are easy to blend as well, so it’s great for those who are afraid to contour or over-define. You can also use the shades on the lids for a soft, taupe smokey eye, using the lighter, luminous tones to enhance and lift the entire area.

IT Cosmetics IT Girl Beauty Book, £52

This one is limited edition, so be quick. It makes for a great gift (either to yourself, or for a loved one), thanks to the extensive offering inside. You’ll find three powders, a bronzer, blush, highlighters, concealers and eyeshadows – to name a few. There’s also a universal brow powder and eyeliner included. A must-have for beauty junkies, or anyone who likes to have everything in one place. We love how it folds down, too, fitting cleverly into a carry-on or handbag.
