If you find the right eyeshadow palette it’s like gold dust – sometimes literally. It can last for months, and help create all kinds of different looks.
We’ve found a lovely brand, Skinnydip, and this excellent palette, There She Glows, £12.50 (Boots) which is a mix of matte and metallic shades that are just perfect for darker days and party nights.
Use the shades wet as liner along the top lashline, and dry swept across the eyelid, and there are just the right mix of shades for natural daytime eyes and smoky, sultry evening looks. While some cheaper eyeshadows don’t last long or go on smoothly, this one does the job just tickety boo, and we’ll have one in our clutch bags as we venture out this winter.
