My Go-To Eye Shadow Palettes
I was planning on writing a mega post about all of the palettes I own. In hindsight though, I have about 35 and I can’t really be bothered showing you my damaged and unused ones. So, I thought I’d write a post about my go-to palettes and those I like to take travelling with me.
KAT VON D X TOO FACED “BETTER TOGETHER” PALETTE
I haven’t had this palette for very long, but it’s definitely becoming one of my favourites. Whether you want a basic workday eye or a burgundy cat eye, this palette is your gal. When you buy this as a gift set, you also get a sample size of the Tattoo Liner and the Better Than Sex Mascara (my fave).
It can be pricey, but I reckon it’s good value for the money you’re spending. You can also take apart the palette, as it’s connected by magnets. This is good if you’re travelling and need to save space in your luggage.
LIME CRIME VENUS PALETTE
I’ve had this for quite a while, and the colours are still pigmented and heavy on the lid. This is a great Autumn palette thanks to its grungy colours. I usually pair these colours with Velvet Teddy by Mac to really make my eyes pop.
URBAN DECAY NAKED 2 PALETTE
If you’re a fan of a smokey eye, this is the one for you. This is the palette I use when I go on nights out, or if I’m going for a nice meal with my boyfriend. However, it can be versatile if you’re after a palette that can do both a night and day look. It doesn’t have any matte neutral shades, but the shimmer shades are great to swipe on the lid for a dewy day look.
VIOLET VOSS PRO EYESHADOW PALETTE
This is my bible tbh. I use this every day without a doubt, and I’ve just hit pan on my favourite shades (nightmare). This palette is hard to get your hands on, but Beauty Bay tend to restock it on a regular basis once it has sold out. You can probably tell this is one of my favourite palettes thanks to how messy it is… But it’s honestly so versatile. You can create countless looks for any occasion and I always have this on me if I need to do my makeup on the go.
JEFREE STAR BEAUTY KILLER PALETTE
I won’t lie, I only use this at the moment for my brows, Vanity is the perfect shade to use and matches my natural hair colour the most. I’ve also started using Black Rainbow over my liquid eyeliner to give it some sparkle. I’ve found it makes my liner stay for most of the day as well.
What are your go-to eyeshadow palettes at the moment?
