Eyeshadow Palettes you need in 2018!

If you're anything like us, you're an absolute sucker for a new eye shadow palette. So, before you go spending this weeks grocery money on the latest eyeshadow trends, we've done the groundwork for you. Read it and weep...

Too Faced

Renowned for their iconic eyeshadow collections Too Faced have started 2018 with a bang, launching not one but two drool worthy palettes.

White Peach Palette

After the undoubtable success of the ‘Sweet Peach Palette’, this new palette contains 12 similarly dreamy shades. Made up of matte, shimmer and glitter shadows. Our favourite look to create with these colours is a deep plum smoky eye using shade ‘peach passion’ all over the lid. This look will look particularly stunning paired with a little black dress. So if you’re hitting the town on your Hen do, take note!

If you’re unicorn, mermaid or Coachella obsessed this palette will fit you down to a T. Now available for pre-order this palette is all you need to achieve festival glam! Duo-chrome shades such as ‘Dusk Teal Dawn’ and ‘Beamin’ offer shade-shifting, pearlescent results.

Admittedly the packaging does give us slightly childish, Claire’s accessories vibes, however you can’t deny the quality of Too Faced shadows. They are richly pigmented, giving vibrant colour pay-off which will stay put all day; perfect for a glamping Hen party with lots of activities.

Pocket Candy Palettes

This collaboration with the well-loved children’s brand Polly Pocket makes us feel delightfully nostalgic. Available in 3 fantasy like colour combinations the collection accommodates whatever your style, whether you’re into warm everyday tones or unique vibrant colours.

The extra fabulous element about these palettes is their size; they can literally fit into your pocket! Therefore, they are a great space saver in luggage if you’re staying away on a girl’s weekend.

Rainforest of the Sea

Although this palette only has 5 shades and it may seem like other brands are better value for money, don’t be put off.

Not only is the packaging for this palette b-e-a-u-tiful, incrusted with mermaid like gems. It also has the most amazing eyeshadow shades. All of which are metallic, foil eyeshadows that literally melt into the lid. They are so heavily pigmented you can put them on using your fingers which is an absolute lifesaver if you are always running late like us!

Take me Back to Brazil

Summer is just around the corner, so it’s time to liven up your eye game. Inspired by the Brazilian carnival this palette screams exotic, flirtatious vibes. The colour pigments are equally as eye-catching on pale and dark skin; ranging from fuchsia pink, aqua and lime green. With 32 shades your options are endless, layering and blending colours to match your outfit or even your mood. Ideal for a daring bride!

Urban Decay

Naked Heat

A rather controversial palette when it launched last year however it has definitely become a holy grail product in our makeup bags. Yes, there are tons of warm/orange-based shadows available but Urban Decays’ formula, to me, is unbeatable. You can effortlessly create sultry daytime looks for a bridal shower or instead make intense smoky night-time looks for a Bachelorette weekend.

A cool toned eye shadow palette can be hard to find these days and as much as we love pink and red, this Koffee palette is much more likely to stand the test of time. With 35 shades… yes I said 35 you are able to put together endless wearable, neutral makeup looks. There is a selection of earthy matte tones and gunmetal shimmers perfect if you’re feeling edgy. No doubt this will become a staple product on your dressing table. The only downside is it’s rather big, so not ideal for travel and applying makeup on the go.
