A palette is something you might not buy yourself, but makes for a lovely gift. A streak of metallic colour on the eyes, or a bold statement lip, lifts an entire outfit and takes you from day to evening. It’s rare to find one that you want to use all the colours from, but the first two fit the bill, at different price points; the NYX is for bolder make-up wearers only.

Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes palette is one of the best we’ve seen this year. The colours are beautiful, the pigments super-strong, and there’s plenty of choice for both day and nighttime looks. €75, at Brown Thomas.

Chanel La Palette Caractère for lips. This limited-edition palette is perfect for travelling, giving you a range of elegant shades in one compact case. If you think that one Chanel lipstick usually costs around €35, you’re getting to try several shades here, and can also create your own custom colour by mixing them. €65, at counters nationwide.

NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Brights Eye Shadow Palette. So much fun for less than €20! This is a teen delight, with so much colour and brightness. An explosion of 16 shades that brings to mind the 1980s. €18.90 at Arnotts.
