Christmas Gift Guide 2021: Palettes


Christmas Gift Guide 2021: Palettes

Welcome to Day Four of my Gift Guides! Today, we're talking palettes and I could probably include 100, but I've narrowed it down and haven't included any from previous years. If you know a palette addict like me, keep reading.....

Huda Beauty Naughty Nude Palette (£58): LauraLouBeauty made me buy this palette, because of the stunning looks she created with it in this post. The large palettes from this brand are pretty pricey,  but the shadows are buttery soft, pigmented and just so dreamy! If you know a Huda fan, they won't be disappointed to find this under the tree!

Natasha Denona Christmas Kit (£22): I absolutely LOVE how dinky this is! It's really good value, considering that there are five shadows in the palette, PLUS a mini brush! If there's one thing that Natasha Denona does well, it's eyeshadows, but they are normally very expensive, so this is a great gift for someone who has always wanted to try her eye shadows.

By Terry VIP Expert Palette (£48) : I bought this when there was a 25% promo on, because I'd never tried any eyeshadows from this brand before, but the texture of the face palettes is beautiful, so I assumed the same of the eye shadows. The colours in this palette are perfect for everyday looks, but also for evening looks and whilst the shadows aren't exactly new, I've never seen this combination in one palette before. It's like choosing all of my favourite shades and making a customised palette. Any By Terry fan will love this!

Pat McGrath Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad Bronze Borealis: I adore the formula of Pat McGrath eyeshadows - they're pretty much second to none, but they are expensive. I feel that a quad is a good starting point for anyone new to the brand, but also, they're not as heavy as the full size palettes, so are more convenient for your makeup bag. I know there is a new palette out this year, which is cheaper than the usual large ones, as it has cardboard packaging, but the colours just didn't catch my eye. The texture of Pat's shadows is so buttery soft, and they are nicely pigmented, which makes them a dream to work with.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume II (£61): Now on to face palettes, and you can't go wrong with one from Hourglass. There are larger palettes if you'd prefer one that includes blushes, but this trio is perfect for setting base makeup, whilst adding a soft focus look to the skin. If you can't decide which powder would suit you best, this trio palette is perfect!

Pat McGrath Divine Blush & Glow Trio: The blush and highlighters are recent additions to the brand, so rather than buy individuals, this trio (which comes in two colour ways),  is the perfect way to try both products. I have two individual blushes and I love them because they are moderately pigmented, so you can build up to the look you like, plus they are finely milled, so they aren't patchy.

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm (£60): I've already raved about this palette on the blog! I love that it has a highlight, blush, bronzer and contour, as all products can also be used on the eyes, so it's perfect for travelling. I adore the glow it gives and my face comes to life when I use this palette!

Which one would you most like to find under the tree? I'd love to hear!
