some of my favourite make-up palettes

A make-up palette is a really great way to organise make-up bags and kits. I thought I would share some of my current favourites. Some are ready made and some I’ve put together myself.

From top middle left in a clockwise direction –

Benecos Quad in Coffee and Creamthis has been a favourite of mine for so long and I’ve recommended it to so many people. I love the colours but also the price point of £7. The packaging is very plastic but recycle with Terracycle.

The smaller round shadows in my tin to the right are Kjaer Weis – I love these shadows, the colours are really wearable and the texture is great – they blend well and have good longevity on the eyes. You can buy refillable packaging to put them in individually, but they are also fab to make up your own make-up palette. My tin is from Make Up For Ever. Making your own palette is great from a professional point of view, but also personal – you can have the exact colours that you want and replace just those when you need to.

The bigger shadows with the leaf imprint are from Purobio, again I love these because you can buy refills and make your own palettes up (I was disappointed in the plastic each one came in, hopefully that will change). I like the good mix of matt and shimmer available and the texture is really nice. They are a really good price for each refill at around £5.

Bottom right is from Jane Iredale. This is actually a blusher and highlighter palette but I love it for eyeshadow too. The colours are great and the texture is smooth – they go on and blend really well. The packaging is cardboard so I imagine could get a bit battered, but I like it isn’t plastic. (sorry can’t find it on their website.. might have been a Christmas special)

Bottom left is Ilia, I’m loving this palette which I bought from Content. I couldn’t decide on the colour so first went for this Cool Nude, there is a warmer option which I’ll give a go too at some point. I really like the good mix of matt options and just two shimmers. The deep burgundy is lovely for a soft smokey eye. The shadows go on smoothly, blend well and I find last well for the day. There is a little creasing but no more than others. The Ilia eye primer is nice under these (in fact under all of them) for added longevity. The palette is plastic, however Ilia have partnered with Terracycle to help with waste.

I really like the Tropic palette which you can build yourself – mine here is two eyeshadows (going out of picture), a blush, highlighter and bronzer.
