Pick Your Perfect Party Palette

Pick Your Perfect Palette for the Party Season

No party make up wardrobe is complete without a palette, which is why we’ve rounded up some of the season’s most dazzling eye enhancers to ease you effortlessly through the coming months of soirees, red wine rendez-vous and cocktail parties.

Each starring fourteen stunning shades of the highest-quality baked powder pigments, Laura Geller’s {Delectables} collections are to die for. Available in ‘Cool – with a spectrum of greys, mauves and charcoals – we’re obsessed with ‘Nude’; a season-appropriate edit of autumnal coppers, bronzes, forest greens and berry shades, to complement all eye colours (and outfits).


By Terry’s {Eye Designer Palettes} are almost too beautiful to use – perfectly embossed, the sumptuous shades look like ten precious jewels that we just want to drool over. ‘Magent Eyes’ is a limited edition collection with ten, dramatic yet wearable hues – ranging from midnight blue to turquoise green, via rust, chalk and taupe. Buttery soft, these blend together seamlessly to create a multitude of eye-catching effects.


BECCA’s {Ombre Rouge Eye Palette} stars a universally flattering quintet of warm, russet colours to create a subtle yet striking beauty look. Perfect for contouring the eye area, these densely-pigmented powders can be used to achieve understated, day-appropriate sophistication or to amp-up the drama after hours. And, the slimline compact nestles neatly into even the most mini of minaudières come cocktail hour.


If eyes are the windows to the soul, make sure yours are exquisitely framed with Stila’s stunning {Eyes are the Window – ‘Body’ Palette} – a party-perfect palette with twelve, matte and shimmering disco-appropriate shades of aqua, aubergine and peacock, alongside neutral-toned nudes, creams and beiges. The gilded casing is infinitely ooh-inducing (a brilliant gift for your girlfriends), while the contents makes it easy to transition faaaaabulously from desk to dancefloor with just a little extra smoulder and a hint of glimmer.
