My Top 3 Palettes for Spring/Summer! (Review and Swatches)

Hi beauties!

Spring is well and truly underway now in the UK, there’s still the odd shower or two but we’ve had some beautiful sunny days! In light of this I thought I’d write a post on the top five palette’s I’ll be using in the upcoming spring/summer months! Let’s get into it..

 

First up is the Huda Beauty ‘warm brown obsessions’ palette. This palette is small but mighty! I am absolutely loving the ‘obsessions’ collection from Huda Beauty as these palettes are perfect for any makeup lovers kit; just the right size not to take up too much space but amazingly pigmented with a whopping nine colours! This palette is ideal for those makeup lovers whos makeup bags are already bursting at the seams but keen to try the eyeshadow formula that the whole community is raving about! This very warm toned palette is so versatile and I find myself using it for nearly every eyeshadow look I do. The pigment of these shadows is amazing, one dip in the pan and the brush is covered in soft, blend-able colour – a must have for spring/summer looks! The palette contains one foil-effect gold shadow surrounded by eight stunning mattes making for an incredibly versatile burgundy and neutral toned palette. Turns out good things definitely do come in small packages! (I’d also suggest checking out the other palettes in the ‘obsessions’ collection too, there are so many cute colour combinations that will melt your heart!)

Next let’s talk about the Sigma ‘creme de couture’ palette.. my oh my, this is one beautiful palette! There is such an amazing range of stunning colours that just speak to my soul. This palette screams spring/summer from the gorgeous pastel colours to the eye-catching bright shades, there is something in this palette for everyone. The shades are extremely pigmented and blend like butter, something I love about this eyeshadow formula is that as you blend the shadows the colour does not fade away and become more translucent as is very common with bright shades. The shadows give a lovely matte finish with amazing colour payoff, everything you could ask for from a vibrant, colourful palette. This palette allows you to create so many versatile looks and tailor them to any outfit you decide to wear this summer.. no matter the colours! This is a palette available to enjoy by anyone, from the soft pastel ‘cherry blossom’ and ‘blue chocolat’ shades to the bright and bold ‘redberry rose and ‘cassis’ there is a shade in this palette for everyone!

Last, but certainly not least, is the Morphe Brushes ’35O2′ palette. This has to be one of my all time favourite palette purchases. I have been such a big fan of Morphe for many years now and own five of their eyeshadow palettes (I know, only five?!) Their eyeshadow formulas are so pigmented and both their matte and shimmer formulas are always of such high quality and never let me down. This palette in particular is perfect for spring/summer as the shade range is on point (I mean that red shade.. that’s perfection), all the shades are very warm toned and as there are 35 to choose from the ability to create gorgeous fades and un-clockable blends is second to none – this is down to the incredible textures of the shadows and also how versatile yet coherent the shade range is! A definite must have palette for those warm, summery looks.. I think I’m so drawn to this palette as I am really into wearing bright reds this year and this palette is perfect for creating the right eyeshadow look to compliment my red outfit choice!

So there we have it, my top 3 palettes for the spring/summer. All three palettes are so versatile and you can create any desired look to suit any outfit choice! They’re also amazing for people just starting out in makeup who need a few staples to get them underway! Let me know what your favourite palette is below! Until next time beauties..
