As women, we love to always look our best. In this day and age, women always go the extra mile when it comes to their beauty items. Make-up trends and beauty bloggers can fill our days with an overload of information, regarding the newest and most popular make-up brands and tools. Staying afloat with all these details can be quite a daunting experience.
We’re here to tell you that you don’t need to buy every single cosmetic product that you come across in every YouTube video and TV advertisement. All you need are staples – basic palettes that cater to your specific needs.
We’ve compiled a list of the 6 makeup palettes every woman needs to own – or at least experiment with.
Contour ‘n Sculpt
Find a sculpting palette that you love. Whether creams or powders (or just some good old bronzer), one basic contour kit is all you need.
Highlighting Is Key
Add a little glow to the high points of your face. This creates so much dimension and will look great on photographs. Highlighters usually come in little sets of three or four shades, and should be compact enough to slip into your beauty bag everyday when you’re on the go.
Nudes are your best bet when it comes to laying down a good base on the eye area. Matte pigments are great for sculpting your eyes.
The number one palette, when it comes to eye make-up, is the smokey palette. A good smokey eyes palette will include some dark browns, blacks and blues. These are amazing shades for going from a subtle daytime look to a romantic date. Keep this one on stand-by ladies!
Shimmer ‘n Shine
Taupes, bronzes and rose golds are beautiful additions to the eyelid. You need some shimmer pigments for the middle of your eyelid. This, along with your matte crease and base colours, creates dimension and sculpts the eyes beautifully.
Everyone needs a bit of colour. Purples, reds and pinks are great pigments to have for creating unique looks.
