Tried and tested: multiuse palettes
Double duty make-up has been a trend for some years, and with its time saving, space saving and money saving benefits, we’re hoping it doesn’t stop any time soon. We’ve had a look around for the latest multiuse palettes which you should be using right now.
jane iredale Rose Dawn Bronzer – 4/5
This bronzer is from mineral make-up brand jane iredale, and recently underwent a redesign to make it even more effective for on the go beauty. The quad palette is made up of four luminous pink to copper shades, which can be worn on cheeks, eyes and even lips. I stuck with my cheeks and eyes, adding a soft contour and highlighter combo to my face and sweeps of copper on my eyes. It’s not too shimmery and stays put for hours, adding a warm glow to my skin. A really impressive product, that’s also available in two additional colour ranges.
Ciate London Fearless Palette - 4/5
If you opt for the extra zzzz's each morning then a lightweight make-up bag is essential for doing your face on the go! Ciate London's Fearless Palette is a perfect addition to any kit, as this compact holds nine weightless eyeshadows made from finely milled pigment which stay put without creasing.
Swipe Gold Digger, a bronze shimmer, or Hustle, a pink champagne hue, across your lids for a hint of colour, or for an instant smoky eye, dust on a little of Work It, a purple/grey, across your lash line. But the real beauty of this palette is its versatility - use a touch of Go Getter, a saddle brown matte, on a brush as an eyeliner, or sweep blush matte Be Sassy over the apples of the cheeks for a little glow, or dab on brow bones and the bow of the lips for a chic strobing effect.
Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS Palette - 4.5/5
This set caters to your eyes, face and brows, and each section does its job to an extremely high standard. There’s the perfect mix of shades too, taking all skin tones into account, and with nine eyeshadows to choose from there's no need to use any other palette. There are also cards suggesting how to apply the make-up too so it's easy to work your way around the options and use them properly. A great all-in-one product which is perfect to take on trips rather than lugging a big make-up bag.
