make up palettes

With Urban Decay launching Naked 2 Basics, we’re falling in love with pretty palettes all over again. Whether you’re after smouldering smokey eyes or a selection of natural shades that will complement any complexion, take a look at our selection below; you’ll certainly find something for your wishlist this autumn.

The new Naked palette will appeal to those after a natural, matte finish. But these shades are the kind you’d find in any professional’s make-up bag, as they’ll provide the perfect base for any look, whether neutral or dramatic. Six must have shades to take you from day to night in one. Heaven! €44

For those moving away from the peaches and pinks that may have dominated their summer look, YSL’s Pure Chromatics palette will do the trick. We’re loving these intense, blue and grey shades, but you can choose from 5 colour combinations. These will be a favourite among those after a shimmery finish; they boast a 75% concentratin of pearls and pigments. Use them wet for greater colour intensity and a metallic finish. €53

Bobbi Brown will always be the go to brand for a decent, reliable palette. We’re loving these two below, one for those of a more peachy persuasion €45 and another for those who feel pretty in pink! €58.50

 

Lastly, for those who really want to treat themselves, there’s always Tom Ford, with his products so good you could eat them. These shades are rich, opulent with super strong pigments ensuring you won’t have to go adding to your eye make-up as the day goes on. Whether you’re after a sexy slash of colour during work hours, or an intense smokey eye at night, this is the cream of the crop. €70

 

What’s your go to palette?
