Eyeshadows are one of my favourite makeup items. I think it’s because eyeshadow is the part of your makeup bag that can totally change a look for day or night. That, and there are so many different looks that can be created. One thing that I can’t resist buying is an eyeshadow palette.
Eyeshadow palettes are perfect for lazy girls like me. All of the colours are there for you so you don’t have to try and think about which colours work best together. If I’m in a rush, an eyeshadow palette is my number one go to.
This year, the eyeshadow palette game is stronger than ever before and there are so many beautiful palettes out there at the moment that I’m totally lusting after. So, I thought I’d round them all up in one place. Partly so that I can continue to lust over them, partly as a bit of a guide if you’re looking to find the perfect palette for autumn and mainly because I can refer back to this when I have a few spare pennies to treat myself…oops!
1 – Tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette – Tarte is a brand that I’ve only just recently discovered but now I want it ALL, just look at their packaging. I love the tones in this palette and how many different looks that you can create come day or night. Let’s also just take the time to shout out one particular shade, cozy, because that, my friends, is what you call perfection.
2 – Urban Decay Heat Palette – If this doesn’t give you all of the autumnal feels then I don’t know what will. And, let’s be honest, you can’t beat an Urban Decay naked palette.
3 – By Terry Smoky Nude Palette – With 10 shades, and all of them equally as beautiful, this By Terry palette screams luxury. The different shadows are all different enough to create loads of different looks but equally work perfectly together. What I like about this palette is that it’s not just the same colour in 10 different shades, they’re all very different and that’s what I love.
4 – Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette – Do I even need to talk about this palette? I mean, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Not only are the colours 10000% me but Hourglass is also cruelty-free too which is something that I’ve become much more aware of lately and is something I’d like to try and support.
5 – Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – I love me a smoky eye! There are two looks that I can confidently wear and that’s a nude eye or a smoky eye. But, when I wear a smoky eye I can’t go too dark so this palette is perfect. The different shades of grey aren’t too heavy or overwhelming so help create a subtle, smoky look.
6 – Benefit Big Sexy Eye Kit – Another one for the lazy girls over here. This new benefit palette is exactly what I need in my life. Benefit has literally done all of the work for me with the colour combinations and their shadows are always really high pigment too so I have no doubt that this palette will end up in my makeup bag.
