Perfect Palettes

So I've recently re-discovered my eyeshadow palettes. I don't mean that I ever lost them in the first place, more like I put them in my makeup drawer marked 'palettes and miscellaneous' and neglected them. And now I feel bad, because I've neglected them in favour of a more simple makeup look for summer, the 'barely there' face, a bit of mascara and pink blush and that's it.

I decided to get out of this rut the other day by deciding to play with some eyeshadows and see what I could come up with. Eyeshadow is hard work on my face in the heat. You'd think that by applying a primer and pressing the pigments into my skin that they'd stay there all day, never melting, and never blending into one unrecognisable colour palette. But alas, that's not the case and I feel like the more heat the sun pours down on the UK, the more my eyelids sweat and I end up feeling all clogged up and gross.

This aside, I'm trying to get over this by embracing my eyeshadow palettes this summer. I have too many lovely shimmery gold colours that really look lovely in bright light and too many bronzes and burnt oranges that really bring out my blue eyes.

One thing that I've told myself to do is to say yes to more things this summer instead of shying away and continuing with the norm. I guess easing myself in with some gorgeous eyeshadow looks will be a fabulous way to start...best foot eye forwards then...!

What's the best palette that you own? I'm on the hunt for some more :)


  1. I have Naked 2 palette and I love it.
    Although I have been trying to be more experimental with the colours so I picked up Sleek Snapshots palette which is great.

  7. Loving all your palettes! I still haven't got any of the 'naked' palettes I fell like a bad blogger, lol

  8. I had the top Benefit Palette and thought it was great for achieving a natural basic look which made your eyes look awake and fresh. However I have moved to the Naked palette by Urban Decay and I don't think I could live without it. There is a shade for every look and they are great at lasting ect!
