3 Eye Palettes That Are So Wearable It’s Ridiculous

No dud colours – every shade in these palettes packs a real punch

Hair & Beauty

There’s nothing worse than investing in an eyeshadow palette, using one or two shades and leaving the others practically untouched because they just don’t look right. Any palette worth its salt should offer shades that are universally flattering and are perfect for either a touch of daytime polish or for full-on evening glam. With that in mind, we’ve cherry-picked three palettes that do just that – with not a ‘dud’ shade in sight. 

Violet Voss Laura Lee Eyeshadow Palette 

If you’re after that gorgeous “Insta-beauty” eye look, then it makes sense to invest in a palette co-designed by Laura Lee. The social media darling has joined forces with uber-cool Californian brand Violet Voss for this palette of delectable sunset and earthy hues, in a variety of matte and shimmery textures. Our favourite shades include the claret red Rammer Jammer, terracotta Ragga Muffin and sparkly khaki Smash Lee. There are also ivory, cream and charcoal ‘base’ shades in there two (Basic, Sugah and Lou) so you can create a classic smoky eye, or else adorn your lids with a glittery gold (Fleeky) or candyfloss hue (Tickled Pink). £43 Beauty Bay

Morphe Brushes 35 Colour Shimmer Nature Glow Eye Shadow Palette (35OS) 

This sought-after palette is stuff of legend among make up buffs and for good reason. First of all it’s a bargain – offering 35 shades no less - while the velvety textures are super easy to blend and the warm colour spectrum will lift the complexion and contour your lids superbly. Shades vary from coral to saffron, bronze and dusty pink, all with a stunning shimmery finish. And as they all pretty much complement each other, you can blend quite a few of these together for a gorgeously nuanced eye-shadow look. But if you’re rushing out the door, any of them used individually will look stunning too. Trust us, you won’t be bored. £23.50 Cult Beauty

Makeup Revolution Love The Revolution Palette 

When it comes to day-to-night make-up, this pretty palette ticks every box. A capsule wardrobe of bold and subtle shades, it features both matte and shimmery textures, a rich colour pay-off and a handy cheek highlighter in the middle. The glittery gold, pink and deep purple hues are foolproof for creating a statement smoulder, while the matte brick red, greige and caramel are ideal for contouring or cut-crease looks. And did we mention the cheek highlighter…? £8 Superdrug
