Écrin Couture Multi-Use Make-Up Palette, £89 | Dior

This limited-edition palette is worth snapping up while you still can. Designed in collaboration with Italian artist Pietro Ruffo, the embroidered constellation pattern is only half of what makes this palette so impressive. Complete with an illuminating powder, five eyeshadows, four lip shades, two blushes and a dual-ended applicator brush, it might not come cheap, but Dior’s unrivalled formulas are always worth the investment.

Sun Stalk'r Face & Eye Bronzer & Highlighter Palette, £36 | Fenty Beauty

Whether you want to define or just add some glow to your skin, this universally flattering palette is a great, multipurpose choice. Even better, if you’re fond of the neutral eye look, the bronzy shade range can double up as eyeshadow – plus, you could use the darkest brown shade in the crease or as a soft winged liner. Just finish by adding a little of the highlighter shade to the inner corner to brighten things up.

Pillow Talk Beautifying Face Palette, £60 | Charlotte Tilbury

There are few things Charlotte Tilbury does better than blush and glow products, so we were thrilled to see the brand's latest palette was a celebration of its cult ‘Pillow Talk’ range. Versatile enough for everyday wear, you can also use this palette to amp up your look for evening. We recommend dipping into the highlighters with a damp fan brush to take the glow from radiant to glossy. Choose from two versions – one for light-medium skin tones, and another for medium to deep skin tones.

Multi-Stick Palette, £40 | Ilia

Ilia is probably best known for its creamy make-up sticks – which are great for adding a pop of colour to the lips and cheeks. This multi-stick product takes some of these iconic shades and formulas, and puts them all in one convenient palette. A blend of waxes (beeswax, candelilla) plus shea and cocoa butter offers natural hydration and radiance, along with a flattering wash of colour. You can even double up and use the colours on your lips and lids.

Blue Me Complete Look Face Palette, £20 | Kiko

Kiko’s compact palette is a handbag hero – plus, it won’t break the bank. Containing vegan formulas made up of 94% natural ingredients, we love that the shades are enriched with skin-loving hyaluronic acid. Complete with a matte bronzer, two blushes and a highlighter, the centre shade is a translucent fixing powder for on-the-go touch-ups.

La Palette Visage, £50 | Les Filles En Rouje

Les Filles En Rouge champions the French way of beauty – focusing on easy-to-use, simple products that make a real impact. This palette is designed to be used with your fingers and the products applied to your face directly. All the shades are versatile enough to be used together, but we love that it includes a couple of punchier tones to allow you to create a wider range of looks. Not to mention, the gold Art Deco-inspired cases would make a chic addition to any make-up bag.

Solstice Mini Mix Face Palette, £30 | Ofra

This nine-shade palette is perfect for anyone who enjoys experimenting with eye looks. Complete with a range of neutrals and a few fun pops of colour, these shades will take your make-up look from day to night with ease, making it the perfect thing to reach for when you want a little something extra. It also includes two blushers and one highlighter, making it all the more convenient to keep on your desk or in your bag.
