I won't lie - I temporarily forgot how it felt to have makeup on my lids. What with staying at home being the new going out, I downed tools. .

But as the world continues to open up, so too are my peepers. I'm over makeup minimalism: I want colour, I want pigment and I want it now. So here are the latest eyeshadow palettes I'm vibing with right now:

Kash Beauty Secret Treasure Eyeshadow Palette, €29.95

For all you blue-eyed gals out there,

this palette featuring a flattering mix of shimmering coppers, matte browns, and glistening golds truly is a treasure.

I'm already a huge fan of this nine-strong palette by Irish beauty influencer Keilidh Cashell. Rich and easily blendable, l promise you'll use every single pigment again and again.



Nars Duo Eyeshadow, €34

Available in 15 hero shades, the biggest problem you're going to have with this duo is settling on your favourite shade. Featuring two micro-fine pressed powders, the eyeshadows can be worn wet or dry, meaning you can dial up the intensity when the mood hits.

Sculpted by Aimee The Full Face Edit: All in One Palette, €35 Okay, so this isn't strictly an eyeshadow palette - it is so much more. Available in four colour combos including Golden Highlights and Radiance, the compact houses bronzer, highlighter and blush as well as eyeshadows in a cream and satin finish. It's basically my go-to when it comes to my everyday makeup and you'd better believe I use all of the above on my lids.



Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette, €35

 Every time a new Urban Decay palette drops it more or less goes viral - and I get the hype. Now the cult brand's bestselling Naked3 palette has been stripped down to the bare essentials, with six universally flattering shades in a handy tin that will fit into even the most overstretched makeup bag.

Go from low-key to woah-key in just one slick thanks to the new neutrals ranging from an ivory sheen to a deep charcoal brown via a gorgeous dusty rose pink.
