Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette

“My current fave is the Huda beauty desert dusk palette with its inviting mix of 18 bright shades ranging from warm dusty reds (saffron is my go to!) to after dark friendly neon pinky purples. I also love that this palette has the perfect balance of shimmers and matte colours that are both easy to apply and super pigmented.” – bh’s Sam

M.A.C Eyeshadow x 9: Semi-Sweet Times Nine

“I love the M.A.C Eyeshadow x 9: Semi-Sweet Times Nine Palette. It’s all of my favourite matte colours in the one palette – that includes a black! Which is rare for palettes these days. Each one works perfectly on its own or together with my blue eyes.” – bh’s Zoe

Urban Decay Naked2 Eyeshadow Palette

“I love the Urban Decay Naked2 Eyeshadow Palette because I feel like it’s perfect for every occasion! I’m not overly adventurous with my eyeshadow so love that I have a lot of neutral and matte shades to play with. There are also a couple of darker and more sparkly shades in there which means I can amp up the look if I need to. The shades are so versatile that sometimes I’ll fill in my brows with one of the brown shades or highlight my brow bone or inner corners with a lighter one. The double-sided brush it comes with also makes blending really easy. I’m just obsessed!” – bh’s Ellie

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Eye Palette in 14 Rosy Contouring

“My fave eyeshadow palette is the Yves Saint Laurent Couture Eye Palette in ’14 Rosy Contouring’. I have small eyelids so it is hard for me to create a complicated eye look, however the colours this palette mix effortlessly to create a smokey eye. The shades are highly pigmented and stay all night long. For a lazy makeup girl like me, this palette definitely helps to glam up for a special occasion.” – bh’s Tash

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

“I’m super fussy when it comes to eyeshadow. I really overdid the grey smokey eye back in my late teens, so I now have eyeshadow PTSD and refuse to wear anything other than bronze tones. Most of the time I just use bronzer but when I like to add some depth and dimension to the eye, I’ll only use the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette. It has all the shades I need, it actually smells like chocolate and it always makes my blue eyes pop. My favourite shades are Milk Chocolate (ideal for an everyday swipe over the eyelid) with Semi Sweet in the crease and outer corners and maybe even a little Creme Brûlée in the centre of the eyelid if I’m really going all out.” – bh’s Kate

$70, mecca.com.au

Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette

“This is by far my favourite eyeshadow palette. It contains 12 peachy shades that ALL look amazing. I can create limitless eye looks with this palette and I love that there is a mix between matte and shimmer shades. I use this palette to create looks for any occasion, from work to a hot date.” – bh’s Sophie
