Pat McGrath’s Mothership II: Sublime Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is what dreams are made of! The pigment is exceptional and the selection of colours is beautiful. The green and the iridescent pink are my go-tos. Oh, and the gold and copper!
Fenty Beauty’s Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is jam-packed with warm-toned shadows that can create as soft or as bold a look as you like. The pressed glitters are gorgeous too. Apply with a fluffy eyeshadow brush for a wash of shimmer, or a damp concealer brush for full-on drama.
Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette
There’s a reason why Urban Decay Naked palettes are so popular – the pigments are strong and the formulas last. This is probably the most universally wearable of them all, whether it’s an everyday makeup look your after, or glam smokey eyes.
This palette is so versatile, great for subtle contouring or building up for a more dramatic look. It’s completely matte so great if you’re adverse to any shimmer or shine. Plus, it comes with a brush and Bobbi’s iconic eyeliner for easy touch ups on the go.
Shiseido’s Essentialist Eye Palette in Kaigan Street Waters 04
I adore Shiseido eyeshadows for their amazing pay-off and super-fine texture. Their new palettes have just launched and this is my favourite colour combination with an amazing rich black and festive silver. I use the cobalt blue as a liner to change up from the usual black.
Becca’s Volcano Goddess Eyeshadow Palette
This may be the ultimate Christmas palette. Soft matte contour colours for daytime and metallic grey, rust and blue shades for night. This palette and a kohl liner should be all you need to take you from office to party. The powders all blend beautifully and I love the packaging too.
MAC’s Smarty Pants Palette
Smarty Pants is the most used pallet in my kit and is great for both pale and dark skin. It has a great mix of textures from shimmer to matte, and warm reddish and two great gold tones. I often use the pure orange, mixing it into concealer as a colour corrector too.
