Your make up wardrobe needs these must-have palettes

Any slave to make up knows that NOTHING rivals the pulse-quickening effect of a new have-to-have-it palette. Pure, unadulterated joy distilled into a grid of eye-, cheek– and complexion-enhancers, palettes are the perfect ‘fix’ for any beauty junkie, which is why we’ve compiled an edit of the latest, greatest offerings – from {Anastasia Beverly Hills} to Violet Voss – to feed your make up obsession (these are almost too hot to handle…)

Undisputed queen of the beauty scene, where Huda leads, the rest of the industry swiftly follows… Her game-changing {Summer Solstice 3D Highlight Palette} is a gorgeous quartet of soft, buttery highlighting hues, which scatter light to make your cheekbones glow like ‘woah’. It’s basically a Balearic sunset made in make up.

Created in collaboration with Instagram sensation (and beloved make up maven) Nicol Concilio, the latest offering from {Violet Voss} stars 20 stunning hues ranging from pearl (NYC) to smoky khaki (Retrograde). We can’t get enough of shade ‘Pingy’ – a dazzling, midnight blue metallic – and love the versatility of ‘Hangry’ – a wearable, russet-toned brown.

If you like your highlight a little more ‘extra-terrestrial’, look no further than Anastasia Beverly Hills’ {Moonchild Glow Kit}. With otherworldly shades of shimmer – from pale-and-interesting ‘Lucky Clover’ to the galactic violet tones of ‘Purple Horseshoe’ – this palette lends a subtle touch of frost to your complexion (or your eyelids).

Drum roll please… this edit wouldn’t be complete with THE grand finale. Following in the hallowed footsteps of {Modern Renaissance}, Anastasia’s {Subculture} palette unites 14 pigment-packed eyeshadow shades to lend your lids an INTENSE wash of daring, mesmer-eyes-ing colour. The perfect way to create ‘avant-garde’ make up effects, this is the key to unleashing your subversive sex goddess (wear with your leathers and highest high heels).
