From Fenty Beauty to Bobbi Brown and Kat Von D, these are the party palettes guaranteed to get your eyes noticed
If you’re looking for a way to step outside your eye makeup comfort zone, an eyeshadow palette can prove extremely useful. However, a good one can be particularly hard to find especially when it comes to colour choice, payoff and versatility. Fortunately though, brands are upping their games to give their offerings the type of reach that makes the investment worthwhile. With a palette for a multitude of different looks and occasions, here are six of our new season favourites.
The classic one
Bobbi Brown Evening Glow Eyeshadow Palette, £35
The clutch bag of eyeshadow palettes, this capsule collection of neutral to rosy and smokey shades in matte and shimmer wash finishes works perfectly for the space-short. Complete with a mini dual-ended eyeshadow/eyeliner brush, it’s a compact yet carefully curated array of colours ideal for when you’re on-the-go.
The show-stopping one
Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Eyeshadow Palette, £52
The Polly Pocket of palettes, this gothic cathedral-designed treasure chest of eyeshadows carries a colour combo to suit every mood. Containing 24 shades behind its doors separated into two different ‘personalities,’ the shadows are velvety, intensely pigmented and range from matte to pearlescent. Plus, there are also two super-glimmer shades included too (the pearlescent white ‘Absolution’ and shimmering magenta ‘Rapture’), to add a light reflective dimension to any of the other shades.
The smokey one
Rimmel Magnif’eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Smoke, £8.99
Containing 12 high shimmer, satin and matte shadows ranging from greys to taupes to black, this budget-friendly pick provides a versatile selection of bold shades ideal for when you want to make your eyes the focal point of your look. With a sliding scale of colours to suit either day or night, it provides great value for money.
The one you didn’t know you needed
Zoeva Cafe Eyeshadow Palette, £19.50
Inspired by the aromas and atmosphere of a busy coffeehouse, this richly coloured palette acts as an instant pick-me-up for tired eyes. From java tones to coffee cherry greens and mocha highlights, its menu of creamy mattes and metallics makes for a surprisingly enticing combination.
The travel-friendly one
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Fascinate, £45
Adding definition and luminous long lasting colour to lids, the silky textures of the shadows in this palette allow them to layer extremely well on top of one another. With four satiny shades and a matte liner included, the assortment adds vibrancy and depth to complement a range of different eye colours.
The insanely good looking one
Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection Eyeshadow Palette, £39
From its holographic prismatic packaging to its 14 eye-catching shades, this palette’s celestial appeal gives it a unique point of difference. With sheer glittering topcoats and smokey shimmers to choose from, it delivers otherworldly impact.
