Beauty Awards | Eyeshadow Palette

Beauty Awards as they are so cleverly referred to on YouTube are some of my favourite videos to watch. I love seeing what people have loved over the entire year so this year I thought I would jump on the bandwagon with my favourite makeup item: eyeshadow. Specifically eyeshadow in palettes because I find them much more convenient, plus I am not nearly organised enough to create my own palette. I would just want it all. 

I have fallen in love with many an eyeshadow palette this year, because it is that one item that always seems to jump into my online shopping cart, however the one I have fallen in love with is the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani (£40) palette. I just think it's such a cool concept with the perfect range of colours. You could create countless neutral everyday makeup looks and smoky eyes, but you also have the option of introducing a feature colour if you're in the mood for something more vibrant.

Gorgeous pigmentation, consistently impressed by UD eyeshadows. They are my absolute favourite. All I have noticed is some of the matte shadows can be a little powdery but that might just be because I usually pick up the matte shades with a fluffy blending brush.

Other palettes that I have been using constantly throughout the year are The Balm Cosmetics Nude Tude (£13) palette. A truly wonderful neutral palette. The Urban Decay Naked (£38) palette, the very first one. The Lorac Pro (I bought it on Amazon for £16, but I can only find a link for £49 - it's not worth £49) palette, again the very first one. The key to a good palette for me is to have a decent ratio  of matte and shimmer shadows, good pigmentation and minimum fallout. The Naked palette shadows, especially the shimmery ones, can produce a lot of fall out but the stunning range of warm colours more than make up for that. It is a must have palette for any eye colour: brown, blue or green.

Finally, a palette I am dying to try is the Japonesque Pixelated Colour Eyeshadow Palette (£40). It has a multi-dimensional formula and they look like gorgeous little planets in this palette. Again you have four neutrals and six more colourful shades. I have seen some incredible looks on Instagram.

Thank you so much for reading, leave your favourite palette of 2015 in the comments below and/or the palette you want to try next. I love reading your comments, apologies because it has been so long since I last posted but I have just been stupidly busy and tired. I will change this, thank you for your support and taking the time to read my posts, it means a hell of a lot. Take care.

  2. Oh, it's majestic! I liked Baby and Pop the most. It's because they are so shimmering! And I love the popularity of shimmering eye-shadows now, because they look gorgeous! I even mention about it at the article. I think that shimmering makeup is the best what happened with fashion in a thousand years!

  6. This urban decay palette looks pretty cool. I am amazed to see its pretty colors, and do let me know if it can be used for Smokey eyes? My sister is a huge fan of Smokey eyes, and she needs vibrant colors, so it depends on her mood. I am thinking of gifting this amazing palette to my sister.
