The eyes have it: 5 of the best eyeshadow palettes where you'll use every shade
While I'm only just starting to get back into the makeup game after about five years of the same old boring stuff there is still a lot for me to learn when it comes to this craft. Stepping back from my standard cat eye means it is time for me to start learning how to make use of all the eyeshadow palettes I have bought over the years and boy have I learnt a few things already. For instance, my wrinkly, hooded eyelids mean I need to apply way more shadow than I would like to so that you can actually see the effect. More importantly though I've learnt that I have wasted a tonne of money over the years on eyeshadow palettes where I only use one colour.
We often get suckered in by pretty packaging (I say we because I assume that I'm not the only one who is a slave to the packaging!) and sales when we could actually get the one shade we had our eye on individually much cheaper. I had a hunt around and found 5 eyeshadow palettes where there are no random neons or colours that you will wear once and forget about. Just good old honest everyday eyeshadow shades. You're probably thinking, but most of these palettes are variations on nudes? And well, you'd be right. Brightly coloured eyeshadows are always fun but unless you tend to look like your makeup was done exclusively using colours found in the My Little Pony range then keep the crazy colours to single item purchases and save your palette buys for the ones where you'll use them all up. It's actually way more thrifty.
