Every Girl Should Have: An Eyeshadow Palette

Hey guys!
Eyeshadow palettes come in many different forms, shapes and sizes, I'm obsessed with them, and I think every girl should own at least one...



People tend to vary when it comes to this, either they will buy lots of palettes, or just single eyeshadows, or sometimes both (naturally, I fall under the 'both category!'), but I think if we strip everything down we can actually get everything we need in just one palette.

The ones I would recommend the most is Urban Decays Naked Palettes (£38/12 shadows), I only have the first one but I don't feel a great need in getting the others, because I know that this one will still get used the most. I feel like every women, at some stage in their life, should purchase one of these because it will get used a lot, the quality is the best, I've had mine for just under two years now and I use it more than once a week. I think what makes a palette like this so good is that eight colours are daytime appropriate but there are four shades which can make a look smokier and more evening appropriate, there is also a mix of shimmer and matte which is also handy. It just the best palette to have, especially when you are traveling - you are prepared for everything.
The Kiko Queen of Hearts (€14.90/4 shadows) is a quad and another good basic palette to have, again because it's so easy to mix up - for a daytime look you can put a wash of gold on, or just define the crease of your eye more with a darker shade. For the evening, you can merge the two above together, this palette also has a red shade which I think is so pretty and sometimes it's nice to have a colour which is so versatile. Quads are even better for traveling, because they are smaller, I think quads like this Kiko one are great value for money because I actually wear all the shades!
Palettes are great value for money, usually buying all the shadows individually would cost more and also would be way easier to lose and forget about. I have this problem with my M.A.C shadows - I have two which I really regret buying in the pot form and it usually hides in the bottom of my make-up bag. 
I mentioned these two palettes because I think they are great quality and value for money, versatile in terms of colours and also finishes. If you have any more to recommend, leave a comment below, I would love to see it. I personally love palettes and I try to mix up which ones I buy so I won't end up with 50 neutral shadows. 
I hope you have enjoyed hearing my thoughts on what I think every girl is in need of, let me know if you agree!
Thanks for reading,

  1. I agree! Every girl needs to own an eyeshadow palette. Especially neutral shades with browns and blacks in it so that it will go with everything! Plus, there's so many different looks someone can make with just one palette, I love it! Great post.
