NYX Eyeshadow Palettes, Everything You Need in One Handy Palette
Hitting the local wine bar straight from the office? You no longer need to tote around a huge make-up bag containing all your evening’s essentials. Instead, slip one of NYX eye shadow palettes in your desk drawer and you can create hundreds of striking looks without the need to cart round everything but the kitchen sink!. But these great value palettes aren’t just great for those impromptu work nights out; pack them in your suitcase for your summer holiday or slip them in your gym bag and swiftly touch up that creased, sweaty (eek!) make-up post work out!
From only £11.99 for 10 shadows, NYX’s Eye shadow palettes are a make-up bag must-have. Create the perfect smoky eye with the palette of the same name, or go for cool summery blues with the NYX Sexy Blue Eyes compact. Available in 16 different colour combinations, the popular palettes are fast becoming a hit with make-up junkies looking for a beauty bargain. ‘Inspired by runway trends and modern style’, the lightweight palettes can even be squeezed into your clutch bag for a night out. Great when you want to retouch your make-up when popping to the loos. Extremely wearable, the highly pigmented shadows offer rich colour that lasts. Apply an eye shadow primer first to ensure your shadow lasts even longer and you’ll avoid those dreaded ‘creased’ and streaky eyelids.
Darker eye shadow shades can even be used in place of eyeliner; simply grab a fine eyeliner brush and apply! Or for a modern twist on the smoky eye, why not replace your usual black and greys and opt for Beautiful Green Eyes or even brown and bronze shades?. Receiving four out of five stars for quality on the NYX website, the eye shadow palettes have enjoyed much hype on independent beauty review sites, as well as blogs. Whether you prefer a natural, ‘barely there’ make up look or something a little more quirky, there’s an NYX palette for you – and at less than £10 each. Featuring a sponge double-ended applicator, the palettes’ eye shadows can be applied dry, or wet for intensified colour pay off.
But remember, if you’re going for bold eyes; tone your lips down – and vice versa. Nude lipsticks look great with a smoky eye and vibrant red lips are best paired with just a slick of mascara and not too much shadow. And with ten eye shadow shades per palette, you really can experiment with your look.
