Upgrade your suitcase with travel-compatible palettes

Jetting somewhere? A versatile palette’s the best way to streamline your suitcase without compromising your ‘look’. From hot, Ibiza-worthy highlighters to sumptuous eyeshadows for a swathe of day-to-evening beauty looks, equipped with these glorious grids you can condense your vanity bag while ensuring you’re always unfailingly flawless…

Back and better than ever, Huda’s new {Rose Gold Remastered} is the beloved ‘Rose Gold’ 2.0. Harnessing your feedback to fine-tune the stunning colours and intensify the payoff, this 18-pan palette stars smoother-than-smooth metal ‘fondants’ (think: if Barry White crooned eyeshadow), buttery mattes and a spectrum of shimmering shades in soft, daytime-appropriate tones (‘Suede’, ‘Sandalwood’ and ‘Bubbly’) and chic, smouldering after-hours hues (we’re looking at you ‘Doll Face’, ‘Fling’ and ‘Maneater’). With colours for every occasion, this palette is the perfect travel ally…

And if you daren’t go anywhere without a sweep of sculpting powder, Too Faced’s incredible {Natural Face Palette} boasts a sextet of soft matte and chic, shimmering shades to enhance your bone structure. With tawny-toned powders to chisel your cheekbones and pale champagne glimmers to highlight your brow bones, you’ll also find warm bronzing tones and a flattering, peachy-rose blusher to get your skin glowing!

Oh, we’re going to Ib-eeez-a, equipped with Anastasia Beverly Hills’ to-die-for {Dream Glow Kit}. Realising all your wildest make up fantasies, this set of six highlighters guarantees a gorgeous, Pacha-worthy gleam that will ensure you dazzle when you’re on the dancefloor (and beyond). With celestial shades from pale, golden-toned lemon to glistening green, these finely-milled powders will practically melt into skin to lend cheekbones a subtle, ethereal lustre.

Bringing Parisian chic to the Cult Beauty party, BY TERRY’s beautiful {Eye-Light Palette in ‘Terrybly Paris’} is new and EXCLUSIVE in honour of our 10th birthday bonanza! From La Tour Eiffel to Le Louvre via BY TERRY’s Parisian flagship store, this beautifully embossed edit of sumptuous shadows stars ten tonal colours for effortless elegance.

And speaking of globe-trotting, Jouer’s new {Jet-Set Matte Eyeshadow Palette} unites six soft, toffee-toned shadows for pared-back sophistication. From pale crème brulée to rich, tiramisu, this chic, suits-all spectrum is eye-deal for daytime sight-seeing (or candlelit dinner à deux). With nearly-nude hues and deep, smouldering shades (alongside a dual-ended brush), this palette is also ideal for enhancing your eyebrows or lending your cheeks a believable, apricot flush.
