Five Great Eyeshadow Palettes

It’s official, Winter is here and we may as well embrace it. There are lots of good things about the colder months; blankets, endless hot chocolates, Christmas, wool scarves and the possibility of snow. You just never know! It’s also a good excuse to buy a new berry red lipstick and a beautiful new eyeshadow palette. Speaking of which, here are my favourite five eyeshadow palettes!

PS. If you have blue eyes, you will probably find golds, rose golds and grey tones will work best on you. Lilac and plum shades will look great with green eyes and those with brown eyes, can get away with most colours, so have fun!

Clarins Festive Palette

Party hard this Winter with the Clarins Festive Palette, these super soft nude, gold and warm brown tones are warm, matte and shimmery! The palette comes with easy to follow instructions (found on acetate on the inside) and and easy to use brush. The box is made from card to help minimise environmental impact as part of the Pur Project. If you struggle to create the perfect smoky eye, this palette has a winning formula, Apply shade 4 to the entire upper eyelid. Then apply shade 9 along the upper and lower lash lines with a light repeat application along the lashes. Done!

Nars NARSissist Dual-Intensity Palette

Good things come in small packages and this Nars NARSissist Dual-Intensity palette is a classic example! There are eight concise shades in this set, including a new exclusive shade Ursa Major. These shadows can be used wet or dry, when applied with a damp brush you get a higher impact look, you can create an eyeliner effect if you use a tiny brush.
