A great palette in my eyes is on that I can get everyday uses from, a great selection of mattes, shimmers, sheens, colours and neutrals alike. Not many impress me, which is why I've recently opted to making my own MAC palette.
Now in this blog post I'm not showing you all my palettes, just my favourites that made it into my "everyday" selection which has a home on my dresser. these palettes have impressed me day after day and given me a lot of use due to their variety and pigmentation.
Above I have my favourite palettes pictured and they are Estee Lauder's SS14 GWP Palette, MUA Undressed and Undress Me Too, Rimmel Brixton Brown, L'Oreal Color Riche in Disco Smoking and a self made z-palette with 5 Makeup Geek shadows and 1 MAC shadow. I find these palettes give me everything I need on a day to day basis, crease colours, transition shades, all over lid colours etc for anything from a natural or neutral eye to a colour pop smokey eye and they definitely, for me, were worth every penny.
The Z-palette contains Makeup Geek's Creme Brulee, Peach Smoothie and Cocoa Bear on the top row and then Makeup Geek's Corrupt and Prom Night on the second row along with MAC's Woodwinked. This palette is my go to neutral palette and is mainly used for the matte transition or crease colours. My favourites being Creme Brulee and Peach smoothie, they blend so well and are so pigmented so a little goes a very long way.
The MUA palettes I use for a more bronze smokey eye look and the L'Oreal/Rimmel palettes are great for having a pop of colour when I want to be a little more daring with my looks, which recently I haven't been but I intend to start delving back into colour very soon.
Estee Lauder are currently having a GWP deal at Debenhams. For anyone that doesn't know what that is, it's a Gift With Purchase which means if you buy two or more items from an Estee Lauder counter (one to be skincare or foundation over the value of £80) you get a little make up bag with goodies in it free of charge, hence gift with purchase. This is the palette I got and annoyingly it doesn't have a name which is why I named it SS14 (because that's what the colours revolve around.) This is fairly new in my collection but it's been used pretty much everyday since I bought it and I am so impressed with it! It truly is a little gem, well done Estee Lauder!
