Since the purple, blue and pink galaxy gradient rose to popularity on Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr in the 2010s, anything space themed has had us in a chokehold, especially when it comes to artsy makeup looks. They’re always so brightly coloured and glittery, but not always suitable for everyday looks with a more neutral-toned wardrobe.

Enter Anastasia Beverley Hills’s new Cosmos Eyeshadow Palette ($87). Featuring 12 pigments, the palette has colours from warm matte tones to intense glitters. Each shadow is buildable and easy to blend. You can create any look from subtle and refined, to sparkly and dramatic. If you’re going for a modern galaxy-inspired look, you can try a silvery, blue planet vibe.
In short — this palette has range.
The compact is medium-sized with a built-in mirror. An easy fit into any work bags, totes or large enough cosmetic cases for glam looks on the move.
According to the makeup experts at Anastasia Beverley Hills, it’s always best to start your eyeshadow looks with an Eye Primer ($22) to create a smooth base for a more vibrant look. And when applying different shades, use these principles:
Lighter shades for highlighting and emphasizing features.
Medium shades to shape and transition colours
Darker shades create definition and sharpen edges.
Finish any glitter pigments off with setting spray to really make them pop and sparkle. Or apply glitter pigments as blush toppers for blinding highlight.
