Christmas gift ideas: 10 eye shadow palettes

Hey friends!

So Christmas is coming very soon and you're probably starting to shop for gifts or soon I hope! Today I thought I'd share with you some palettes for that beauty junkie in your life - you know that person that has too much make up for themselves but still needs more because well, make up is life, right?

First and foremost - the big news! Morphe is now in UK so goodbye waiting for Beautybay to stock up on palettes and hello Morphe exclusives so lets bring on our gift ideas!

1. 39A DARE TO CREATE EYESHADOW PALETTE

Personally I haven't tried this yet but it looks like such an amazing mix of colours that you could highlight, use as eyeshadow, blush, contour or even do your brows! It's basically like the one palette does all kind of things plus it looks so luxurious and is sure to let your make up lover go crazy over it! This palette is up for £32 and since my brother is amazing, this is one of the palettes he got me for Christmas!

2. BRONZED MOCHA & COPPER SPICE EYESHADOW PALETTES BUNDLE

This is one of the cutest looking palettes I've seen and I own the copper spice one and as usual, the quality of shadows are creamy and smooth! I think this is the gift for the person in your life that goes for a neutral/natural look. You can get the palettes individually 25A and 25B for £19 each or the bundle for £34!

3. 35B - 35 COLOR GLAM EYESHADOW PALETTE

The last morphe palette I'm recommending would be this colourful number. It's great for that creative person in your life that loves incorporating colours in their life. It has an amazing range of colours which I think can be worked to compliment and match to their outfits/accessories and all that fun stuff. It's going for £23!

4. CHARLOTTE TILBURY Instant Eye Palette

I don't currently own any CT's products but this one looks gorgeous! The packaging is beautiful and it honestly reminds me of Becca's palettes that I already love! This palette has a good mix of colours that lets you create from the natural day time look to a night smokey eye. I also find that this palette is a combination of all the best colours from naked palettes range and if you're not into getting all the naked palettes from UD, you might want to get your hands on this from Cultbeauty for £60.

5. HUDA BEAUTY Desert Dusk Palette



This is one of the cult favourites with the endless pictures of make up gurus posing with the palette over their eyes. If your gift receiver is into their reds and pinks like me, this palette would be the perfect palette! It has a great mix of mattes and glitters that you can play with and it would be amazing for that glitter lover! You can either get it from Selfridges or Cultbeauty for £56!

6. ZOEVA Opulence Eyeshadow Palette



If you haven't tried any ZOEVA products, you're missing out! This is one of the brands that is not only great on the pockets but amazing on the quality of product too! I currently have 2 ZOEVA eyeshadow palettes and 2 of their blush spectrums and they are always my to go products! This opulence palette is one of their latest collection and it sure looks great and the muted colours are perfect for the holiday season! It's £18 on Cultbeauty

7. ZOEVA Matte Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Another ZOEVA palette that's great for a gift is this matte spectrum palette. Similar to the Morphe's 35B, it has a range of colours to play with but this is definitely on the cooler tones and it is more wearable on a daily basis as compared to Morphe's! This is £28 on Cultbeauty!

8. NAKED 3SOME


If you're feeling generous, this palette threesome is a great gift to add to your make up lover's collection! Think of this as the expanded version of the CT's palette but for £50 more, you get an additional two palettes. The naked palette 3 was my first palette which I still pick up very often until today. It blends beautifully, the packaging is sturdy and it goes great on every skin tone! This trio is for £118.50 from Urban Decay but you can get them individually for £39.50!

9. NATURAL LOVE EYE SHADOW COLLECTION



This is one of the prettiest palettes that I own and love! Every single one of this eye shadows are so wearable and it goes with everything! It has an amazing range of mattes and glitters but they are not as pigmented as the other palettes, however the 30 different colours make up for it! It's £59 on TooFaced!

10. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette



I've probably talked about this palette a million times on this space now but this is the must-have palette just because of it's crazy pigment and creaminess. This palette is the epitome of 'a little goes a long way'! And the colours are so complimentary to each other you can basically create so many eye looks with this along with inner corner/brow highlights. You might want to check out the sister palettes Subculture and Prism which looks pretty promising too! They are £43 each on Cultbeauty.
