Fun Eyeshadow Palettes for Statement Makeup

At this time of year with Halloween approaching and festive season following quickly after, it’s fun to start thinking about party looks. And of course, with masks in place for much of our travel time and social occasions at present, all focus is on the eyes…

Face masks are not just keeping people safer while out and about; they are levelling the playing field when it comes to statement makeup. The bold lip is on hold for now in favour of statement eyes; the only thing we’re showing off at the moment! As we approach party season, whatever that will look like this year, it’s time to get experimental with your eye makeup. I love getting my hands on bright and bold eyeshadow palettes to have a play with, so I thought I’d share some of my current favourites for you to try for yourselves…


5 of the Best Eyeshadow Palettes

NARS Extreme Effects Eyeshadow Palette

With everything ranging from subtle and flattering bronze tones that you can wear every day to statement hot red and purple hues that will really make your eyes pop, this 12-colour palette from NARS is one of this season’s best collections.

Fenty Beauty Snap Shadows Eye Shadow Palette

Who said pastels are just for spring? Now more than ever is the time inject some fun and playfulness into your makeup; and this Fenty palette is just what you need.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Smoky Eye Brick

The brilliant Victoria Beckham makes it really easy to create a classic smoky eye with her eye brick palettes. You could go for a classic bronze smoke or make your look into a statement party look with this royal blue hue.

Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Rose Decadence Eyeshadow Palette 

With colours including ‘pink champagne’ and ‘golden honey’, this bright and playful eyeshadow palette by Pat McGrath will put a smile on your face every time you open it. Add a touch of sparkling gold to the inner corners of your eyes to brighten your statement eye look.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette

A lot of people shy away from red and maroon tones but they’re super flattering against most eye colours, particularly blues. So, if you want a bold but gorgeous statement look this season try this quad of pink and maroon colours.
