I love a make-up palette. Whatever time of year, it promises colours which will blend well together providing a foolproof way of applying make-up. Christmas sees a sudden rush on make-up palettes focusing on some shimmer and shine to add some festive cheer. Here are a selection of just some of the Christmas make-up palettes which have caught my eye.
Smokey Eye Instant Look Palette by Charlotte Tilbury – I have a confession…I have a couple of these palettes. They are so easy to use (the fact there are numbers embossed on the shades so you know how to apply them and more details on the back of the palette demonstrates how fool-proof it is). This smokey eye version is perfect for the holiday season.
Couture Wardrobe Eye & Lip Palette by Dior – pretty eye colours to see you from day to knight along with flattering lip colours all in a sleek zip-up case.
Christmas Make-up Palette by Giorgio Armani – this palette focuses on perfecting skin and adding drama to the eye. The bottom layer has all you need to create the perfect base whilst the dramatic eye shadows are based on a cool, crisp Winter’s night with a golden moon.
Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette by Bobbi Brown – simply beautiful. There are not many who could resist this palette and its sumptuous colours.
Glamorous Nudes Eye Palette by No 7 – aren’t these colours so pretty and dream-like? No 7 has some great gifts for Christmas and this one evokes the delicate ballet dancing sugar plum fairies from The Nutcracker.
Gold Christmas Palette by Guerlain – this stunning palette with its truly divine shades for eyes and cheeks would be a a gorgeous gift or treat for yourself.
Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass – this palette is not a special edition for Christmas but I have raved about it so much in the past I couldn’t leave it out. The powders help skin look just that bit better (and who would complain at that after a night or two of festivities?).
Starter Stack by Trinny London – again, not a Christmas edition and also not a palette but a “stack” of products from the hilarious Trinny Woodall. This stack contains everything you need to get yourself fresh-faced and ready to go from base to eye, cheeks and lip shades which can be customised to suit you.
