We’ve Curated the Best Eyeshadow Palettes — From Neutrals to Pastel Perfection
Once you start using eyeshadow, you can never (well, rarely ever) go back. There’s no better way to amp up your makeup routine than with a fabulous eye look. Whether you’re in the mood for a glamorous smokey eye or prefer to keep things natural, there’s a palette out there for everyone.
When purchasing an eyeshadow palette there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, the colour scheme. Are you going to get use out of all the shades? Don’t purchase a 12-pan palette because you like four shades. Second, what’s the pigmentation like? No one likes a chalky mess. And lastly, is the formula blendable? You can find the most stunning palette but if the colours don’t melt together like butter then there really is no point.
Once you’ve found a set of eyeshadows with all of the above then you’re ready for beauty bliss. Not only are palettes great value for money, but they’re also a major space saver, and if you’re anything like me and have a million makeup products with nowhere to put them, then having an all-in-one item is always a plus.
Creating an intricate eye makeup look can take quite a bit of practice to get right, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experiment and have a play. There’s no better way to learn a new technique than to really dive in and give it a good crack.
To make things easier, we’ve curated a list of some of the best eyeshadow palettes for every occasion and look.
