Bright eye shadows are a real trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.
I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.
- 10 x Eyeshadows in Headliner (matte bright white), Inspire (metallic champagne gold), Unicorn Tribe (matte cool plum pink), Brick Road (matte primary yellow), Back Rolls (matte warm chocolate brown), The Supreme (matte deep peach), H.O.E. (matte neutral taupey brown), D.D.G. (rich metallic violet with silver flecks), Beyond (warm metallic fuchsia), Beast (matte blackest black)
- 4 x Pressed Pigments in Texas Made (matte fuchsia hot pink pressed pigment), Dream It (matte royal blue pressed pigment), B.B.D.C. (deep cool aubergine pressed pigment), Believe (violet purple pressed pigment).

So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.
Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel – Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is a blush/illuminating powders quad.
- Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
- London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
- New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
- Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.
Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:
Here is a preview of three brand new eye shadows palettes which just launched, and all three are neutrals with cool, warm or rose shades, so there is something for everyone.
JOUER COSMETICS Springtime in Paris Eyeshadow Palette, £35 from Cult Beauty
I personally like the loom of this one the best. There are some really beautiful shades to choose from, there are 12 colours in general from cool toned neutrals to shimmering plums.
Too Faced Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eye Shadow Palette, $59 from Sephora
This is the biggest palette with 30 shades which probably has every shade you possibly need (0.03 oz/ 0.80 g) Heaven (cream matte), Fairy Tale (champagne gold shimmer), Nudie (fawn matte), Tickle Me (mushroom shimmer), Don’t Settle (dark brown metallic), Fingers Crossed (deep gilded brown), Lace Teddy (soft peach matte), Satin Sheets (golden pink), Push-Up (light bronze pearl), Honey
Autumn is the season when most exciting beauty launches are happening. We already had a preview of some of the new foundations, I plan to write a feature about the new lip products (and some of them are just awesome), and today let’s take a look at the new single eye shadows/ liners.

I swear that I’ve tried to make them look decent before taking the photo
The first one – BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl is my personal favourite and the one that I use on myself all the time, it was recommended to me by Lisa Eldridge years ago, and I love it. It adds a beautiful cool-toned glow to the face, without being shimmery. You can that luxe glow which you can see in top photo shoots. There are several ways you can use it, all the details here.
The second one is Benefit’s High Beam, and I have used half of it already actually. While BECCA is more subtle, this one gives more glow and has more defined pink undertones, but I still love and use it a lot. I like the fact that
