Christmas Eyeshadow Palette Must Haves

#BLOGMASDAY6 My christmas eyeshadow palette must haves perfect for any christmas eye look. Below I have selected my favourite christmas eyeshadow palettes that are perfect for creating any eye look from your nudes to your smoky eye. All eyeshadow palettes featured are cruelty free. 

bareMinerals The Nature of Nudes – Taupe & Gold
I have recently fallen in love with this eyeshadow palette especially because I love wearing either a taupe or gold eye look. This palette features so many gorgeous taupe and gold shades that go so well with each other so you can create any eye look with it. I love wearing East in the crease and over the entire lid as a base shade, then Truffle in the outer v for a golden look or Guest Star in the outer v for a more taupe look and then Opulence in the inner corner to highlight and brighten the eye. I need to experiment with the other shades but so far these are my favourites. It also features 3 darker shades including a dark grey, dark brown and a black for a more smoky eye look if you want a more dramatic look.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky – Smoky
This palette is filled with every shade depending on what smoky eye look you want to create. From gun metal greys to blues to a smoky nude eye look. I definitely gravitate more towards the golden shades as they are the shades that suit me most, but of course you can use whichever shades you like. I love wearing Combust all over the lid and then either using Dirtysweet or Radar in the outer v and then High or Thirteen in the inner corner to brighten up the eye. 

Ted Baker All In The Eyes – Rose
This is one of the new palettes that has been added to my collection and I absolutely love the shades in this palette. It’s perfect if you love wearing rose and mauve eyeshadows. It’s quite hard to talk about this palette in more detail as the shades aren’t named but I’ll try to describe this as best as I can. I definitely recommend using the second shade on the bottom row which is a light baby pink in the crease and then darken up the outter v with either the top gold shade or the taupe shade in the bottom right hand corner and then highlight with the large cream shade in the middle. Of course you can mix and match these shades to suit the look you want. 

Too Faced Gingerbread Latte – Brown Shimmer
This palette is one of the newest to my collection and was part of the Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe set. The 3 mini palettes are all gorgeous and contain different shades depending on the look you want to go for. I would definitely use Ginger Cream all over the lid as a light base and then lightly tap into Maple Syrup as these shadows are so pigmented but for a light brown shade blend this into the crease to create a shaded look and then apply Gingersnap into the outter v for a golden look or go for something different and use Winter Dream for a sparkly pink look and then possibly highlight with Gingerbread for something slightly different. Also I forgot to mention how gorgeous these palettes smell. Honestly if I had smelly-vision it would be something else.
