The Only Palette You’ll Ever Need
By Rebecca Gillam
We heard you were, like, SO done with carrying around tons of different products – especially with all the parties, weddings and festivals in your summer calendar. So the clever peeps at Primark HQ made you this life- (and luggage) saving must-have. The 12 shades in the new Master Eye Palette range from a shimmery cream through warm nudes and corals to vampy mushroom and metallics. There are literally no looks they can’t create!
We’ll talk you through some of the best, like your personal how-to beauty bible. All you need is an eye shadow brush and a mirror (and we have lots of both for you to snap up!). Let’s start with the smoky eye. Low-key, classic and kinda impossible…until now.
Create a beige base across your whole eye area, then work the warm brown shade (go darker for night) into the crease between your eyelid and eyebrow, then blend it down to the outer corners. Like contouring, you’re basically just exaggerating what’s already there — think lighter gets lighter and darker gets darker.
Thinking of trying some pretty out-there trends instead? Nobody wants to splash the cash on something they might never use. So having them all in one place makes it the perfect chance to get experimental! Red eyeshadow is fierce right now, and the fash way to do festival makeup. Make your eyes pop: wear it across your lid and join it with a fine line below your eye. Go mascara-free for a standout look. Not only can it recreate all your fave Insta-trends, the palette even multitasks! Perfect your contour for the ultimate selfie with the iridescent cream shade swept under your eyebrow, on the tops of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.
Squad fake-baked and you didn’t get the memo? Warm up your complexion with a blend of the orange, pinky or bronze tones, depending on your skin tone, on the apples of your cheeks. More of a lip girl? Dab a bit on the top of your cupid’s bow (that U-shaped arch in the middle of your top lip) for a red carpet pout.
Now, preen, pap, post — and watch the #likes come rolling in…
