Glossy Gift Guide: Three of the Best Party Palettes

Beauty editor SARAH HALLIWELL selects three of the best MAKE-UP PALETTES to buy this Christmas …

One of the best things about the party season is the arrival of super-glam beauty palettes, bursting with sparkling colours to lift your make-up look for the duration. It is truly hard to give these ones away to someone else. Below, find three of the best:

1. Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal palette (above) is a unanimous winner with teens in particular – though the box itself is a little clunky compared to their Nakeds, the colours, ranging from warm spice to cool silver, are undeniably sophisticated yet wearable. €49, at Urban Decay, 50 Grafton Street, Dublin 2.

2. For an investment piece, Tom Ford’s winter eye and cheek palette, in retro chic white and gold, is a show-off piece with a Studio 54 vibe – it makes us want to lash on some metallic purple eyeshadow and go dancing. €114, limited edition.

3. Fuschia Make-Up’s Make Me Matte palette features seven warm matte shadows in tones of sand, rust and berry. A fine Irish choice. €29, at salons and pharmacies nationwide; www.fuschia.ie
