A good, hard-working palette can be the hero of a beauty kit, helping to create a truly bespoke look. No longer reserved for make-up alone, skincare palettes like Bobbi Brown’s allow for targeted touch-ups on the go, while backstage beauty must-haves – think MAC’s six-shade concealer palette – have become daily mainstays. From everyday eyes to a highlighting hero, find your perfect palette in our edit…
For A Lip Switch
On those days when just one shade won’t do, slip Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss Palette into your handbag to turn an everyday nude into a sheer coral or a punchy scarlet, or a mix between the three. With the addition of a priming balm, there’s no need for lip salve; the creamy formula plumps lips and softens for a unified base.
For Covering Up
With six shades, creating a custom concealer has never been easier. Use the yellow to hide redness and lighter pinks for dark spots.
Marc Jacobs Beauty’s velvet-touch dual powder adds natural dimension to features with the sweep of a brush.
For A Natural Highlight
Huda Beauty’s 3D Highlighter Palette is no one-hit wonder. With three colour-ways to flatter different skin tones, each of the four shades is focused on adding a natural soft-focus and lit-from-within look. Use each shade individually to define features, or swirl a brush through multiple colours for a bespoke glow. With just the right amount of shimmer, the palette makes for fabulous eyeshadow, too.
