Christmas, or even winter generally, is the time for glittery and dark, exciting eyeshadow looks. I know I’m definitely a sucker for them. But when I’m traveling back to my parents’ from the US, I don’t want to take a million palettes and singles. In fact, I feel like my capsule wardrobe has made its way over to my makeup collection if I’m being honest. I’ve managed to whittle it down to just 1 palette – the palette that I go to for Christmas parties, meals with friends and more over the festive season.
My palette of choice is actually an oldie but a goodie. It’s the Clarins Festive Eye palette. Every year they bring out a new one with a slight variation in colors, but it tends to be a mix of shimmery and matte nudes teamed with a non-nude (in this palette there’s a black-gray, and in last year’s palette there’s a deep purple). As well as this, there’s a chunky glitter shade in there too to allow for extra festive sparkle.You can create a multitude of looks with this palette – the simple everyday looks and the big, OTT looks perfect for NYE! Mine’s looking a little worse for wear (please don’t judge), but I have had it 2 years. I use it nearly everyday and I’ve barely made a dent. They’re pigmented and blendable and just oh-so lovely. Have I sold you, yet..?
