If you’re anything like me and have a slightly worrying obsession with eyeshadows then get yourself a nice hot drink, get comfy and have a read of this!
Eyeshadow is my ultimate favourite part of makeup. Sometimes I wish I could take it off and do it again because I enjoy it so much (I’m aware how sad that sounds).
I have so many eyeshadows and palettes to the point I wonder if I’ll ever use all the colours, but it doesn’t stop me getting more.. woops.
I thought I’d share my top 5 favourites, from high end to cheap af ones.
1. Anastasia Beverley Hills – Modern Renaissance.
I am obsesssssed with this palette. The colours are so so so beautiful and the mirror on it is a brilliant size.
I love the orange and red tones and it has a couple of pinky colours aswell. The brush isn’t as soft as I would expect for the price but it does blend the colours
2. Mac – 9 Colour Burgundy Palette
The. Shimmer. Shades. Oh. My. God. I looove MAC’s sparkly eyeshadows and Day Gleam was my favourite until I found Star Violet and Honey Lust in this palette.
The matte shadows compliment them so well and I couldn’t imagine a better mix of colours for this palette.
This was the first high-end palette I ever brought. The first time I let that amount of money leave my pocket for makeup and I remember the pain.
Until I used it. I’ve had this palette for a year now and I’m still so in love with it. If you haven’t got a naked palette, my gosh, you need one!
4. Morphe 35T
I’d seen this palette online a few times and couldn’t wait to get it. Can you imagine my pure HEARTBREAK. When it came and about 6 of the colours was smashed.
Honestly. Ouch. I had a mare with trying to send it back and in the end I decided the sacrifice the colours I had lost, cleaned it up and used it.
So there are colours in this palette that unfortunately I haven’t used, however, the ones I have got are absolutely beautifulll. Such lovely, pigmented shades. There are so many options to match with this many colours and I have done some lovely looks with this through the Autumn/Christmas period.
5. MUA palettes
Now, MUA palettes are what I would recommend to anyone who is just beginning to try makeup and doesn’t want to splash out because they are brilliantly pigmented, long-lasting and pretty shades. They’re good staples to have in your collection. I still go back them sometimes and I’m yet to find a high street palette to beat them.
I would absolutely love if anyone has any recommendations for eyeshadows to try! I hope you enjoyed the read.
